What We Love About Her Nails

By Miranda Popp


When a beauty professional gives her expert opinion about a new product, you listen. Lauren Browne, general manager of Skye Lash Lounge, went to school at Paul Mitchell and learned the skills of the cosmetology industry. She did her own nails for years and was a huge fan of the gel manicure when it first came out about five years ago. “They were my favorite accessory.”

A Girls’ Trip to the Mountains: A Perfect Remedy for Almost Everything

By Megan Seckman


In 13-plus years of being a wife and mother, I never once took a trip without my clan. Every vacation up to this point has been centered around fulfilling someone else’s requests and creative compromises. While bonding with my family is magical and most of the time makes my heart grow two sizes, it was evident that Mama needed a little break. I was displaying all the symptoms: chronic nagging, feelings of being unappreciated, and acute wanderlust fantasies.

This Bride’s Not-Perfect Moment Was Her Best Memory

Victoria Vogt and Scott Davis married in a May outdoor wedding for 300 guests at Driscoll Estate in Taylorsville, Kentucky. The day brought nice, though windy weather, and a little issue with an arbor altar brought the families together. “My stepdad and I built our arbor in sections so it was easy to transport,” says Victoria. “but 30 minutes before I was to walk down the aisle, the wind blew it over. Seeing the guests helping piece it back together really made me realize how supportive and caring people truly are. Luckily, people had power tools in their cars and were also able to paint over the dirt.

How Do I Test His Relationship Intentions?

How do you know when someone’s intentions for a relationship are genuine and for keeps?”

Recently, Jennifer Hancock reconnected with a former client at an awards banquet in Lexington. The woman, Karen, is now working as a social worker for the very agency where she and Jennifer first met. “Rarely do we know the outcome of the seeds that we plant, but in this case, I was reminded of how powerful our influence can be,” Jennifer says. “I have so much respect and reverence for that role of facilitator of change; it is one that provides hope and a vision of what can be. I was reminded of how sacred that trust is that is placed in us from people who seek help in the darkest points of their lives. Early on, we are truly just a stranger to them, but over time we may be a pivotal influencer of the trajectory of their lives.”

Three Events to Buy Tickets For This Month


By Gioia Patton/Arts Insider

Mambo Kings
Louisville Orchestra Pops Series

The Arts Insider admits to being psyched from the get-go at the idea of hearing this band (formed in 1995) live, after seeing them described as ‘a fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythm and contemporary jazz,’ which was evident after watching just 10 minutes of Mambo Kings in concert on YouTube. In other words, think of music where Tito Puente meets Dave Brubeck.
The Mambo Kings’ performance will feature original arrangements and compositions of music from the U.S., Perú, Argentina, Cuba, and Puerto Rico.

WHEN: January 20 @ 8pm
WHERE: Kentucky Center
TICKETS: $27-$85
CONTACT: Purchase tickets here or 502.584.7777, or the box office (walk up or drive thru).
