Leah Sullivan: New year, new you

Posted 1/8/2012 in Columns

I don't know about you, but I'm glad the holidays are over. I always feel so out of control with my eating and inconsistent with my workouts for that period between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve. New Year's, on the other hand, is my absolute favorite holiday. Time to brush off the dust of the previous year and usher in a fresh start, a new beginning.

 

Adele Elliott: It's party time -- again

Posted 1/8/2012 in Columns

The party's over. Or is it? We have finished with Christmas and New Year's celebrations. Hanukkah, Kwanza, the Winter Solstice, and even the Iowa caucus are behind us. The days are cold, and the sky is still too dark. This is the perfect time to hibernate a bit; time for a long nap.

 

Columbus' five most interesting buildings

Posted 1/8/2012 in Columns

I am frequently asked, "What is the oldest house in Columbus?" However, I would rather answer, "What is the most interesting building in Columbus?" When it comes to the architectural history of Columbus, I have two friends who are the experts and on whom I normally rely for the best information.

 

David Creel: Of Rockettes, choir boys and making memories

Posted 12/23/2011 in Columns

It's Christmas all around the world, or at least all around my world. I went all out this year with my decorations, and can you believe it, not one single casualty yet caused by a Great Dane named Naomi.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Game plan

Posted 12/23/2011 in Columns

Football! Football! Football! For those who love that sport, this time of year is a feast. There are games on one channel or another every day of the week. College, professional and even high school matches have been at our fingertips.

 

 

Shannon Bardwell: The way it was

Posted 12/20/2011 in Columns

The lawyer laughed and talked about getting apples and oranges for Christmas; he agreed everything tasted better back then. Two gentlemen came into the courthouse; one was a lawyer and the other his buddy. While looking over some land deeds, they started talking about Christmases past.

 

 

David Creel: The Twelve (beautiful) Days of Christmas

Posted 12/17/2011 in Columns

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: a subscription to my favorite beauty magazine. On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: two new fragrances (one for day and another seductive scent for evening) and a subscription to my favorite beauty magazine.

 

 

Adele Elliott: The evolution of gifts

Posted 12/17/2011 in Columns

The English language is alive. It is constantly changing, adding words, shifting meanings. Like a pre-pubescent child, it can be clumsy or unexpectedly lovely.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Christmas 'Carma'

Posted 12/5/2011 in Columns

Terrible things seem to occur in terrible weather. Monday was a night plucked from an Alfred Hitchcock film. Temperatures hovered in the mid-30s; an icy rain splattered the streets, and the too-early dark made Columbus feel like she was wearing a shroud.

 

 

David Creel: Face It: Santa's elves offer beauty tips

Posted 12/5/2011 in Columns

Santa is busy this holiday packing up the sleigh with bags of toys and gifts for all those on the "Nice" list. Sometimes I wonder how the jolly ole fellow gets it all done in the nick of time. Well, he has all of his little elves, Mrs. Claus, and even Rudolph to help him pull off Christmas without a hitch, so I thought I would round up a few beauty elves of my own for some tips on adding sparkle to the holiday face. Sit up, pay attention, and listen to the pros from some of your favorite brands

 

 

Adele Elliott: Occupation

Posted 11/26/2011 in Columns

We have heard much about the "Occupy" movement. It began with "Occupy Wall Street" and spread across the country. (There is even a demonstration in Canada.) I am not going to waste my valuable soapbox space to list them all. However, this is primarily an American phenomenon.

 

Rufus Ward: Annus mirabilis 1811

Posted 11/26/2011 in Columns

Annus mirabilis is Latin for "year of wonders." It is most recognized as the title of a poem by John Dryden about the miraculous year of 1666. However, there was also such a memorable year in the history of Mississippi. It was the year 1811.

 

David Creel: From stocking stuffers to divinity candy

Posted 11/26/2011 in Columns

The mantles in my home are already adorned with holiday garlands, festive ribbons spilling from underneath branches of twinkling little lights and the Christmas trees dressing up most rooms with fa-la-la. I love the holidays for many reasons, but mostly for the gifts both large and small that I can give to those I adore. Since I trust you can all keep a secret, I will share some splendid things on my shopping list this season.

 

 

Shannon Bardwell: You da man

Posted 11/25/2011 in Columns

There is a man, who moves fast, but talks slow; who gives much but takes little, a man whose dreams are so small that to most people, they are huge. The man meets a woman alone and afraid.

 

 

David Creel: Beautiful class is in session

Posted 11/19/2011 in Columns

Recently I held a workshop at my salon for two days, kicking off the holiday season, and I learned a few things in the process. Now, I'm no stranger to teaching small audiences everything I know, from lipsticks to lightening hair. The salon was adorned with all the glittery things you would expect, from twinkling white trees to snow globes, as the holidays were our theme for a sparkling weekend of fun.

 

 

David Creel: Thanksgiving, of memories and makeovers

Posted 11/13/2011 in Columns

One of my best memories is quite a simple one. The night before Thanksgiving, falling asleep with the sounds of Mama clinking pots around in the kitchen, the smell, how heavenly, of turkey baking slowly in the oven put me right off to dreamland many nights.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Cha-cha-changes

Posted 11/13/2011 in Columns

I was fascinated by the news this week about the former British rugby player who claims a stroke turned him gay overnight (The Daily Mail).

David Creel: Does changing seasons mean changing your hair?

Posted 11/11/2011 in Columns

"There is a season, turn, turn, turn ..." It was said first in Ecclesiastes, at least as far as I know, and then it was sung by the Byrds. Since then, it has been applied to matters of life and death, the rise and fall of empires, the success and failure of relationships, even a person's changing interests as he or she matures.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Cha-cha-changes

Posted 11/11/2011 in Columns

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another."  Anatole France
