After spending many years under the glow of UV rays, Ashley Menard noticed an alarming trend—wrinkles, freckles, and spots were beginning to pop up. Determined to do right by her skin, she decided to forego the sun and tanning beds for alternate modes of bronzing. She earned a certificate in airbrush tanning and now artistically sweeps on gilded coats of UV-free color inside her salon, Faux Finish. Preferring the artistry of airbrush tanning over automated booths, Ashley’s personal touch tailors shades to client specification or same-day weather forecasts. In addition to airbrush tanning, Ashley has honed her makeup-application talents through private lessons under Linda Mason and Jill Glaser, two of the industry’s leading figures, and can craft flawless faces with regular or airbrush techniques, and is well-versed in performing body wraps.
Malabu Weight Loss reflects the belief that one approach can't be used to reach everyone's weight-loss goals.

The resort itself is located in Elizabeth, a southern Indiana town so small that for much of the 19th century, the local school was a single-room log cabin. Yet just across the Ohio River, downtown Louisville brims with indie-music venues, art galleries, and museums, including the Frazier History Museum. South of downtown, you’ll encounter block after block of Victorian mansions in Old Louisville and stately brick buildings at the University of Louisville.Louisville’s pride and joy lies a little farther south at Churchill Downs, which has hosted the Kentucky Derby since 1875. If you’re not around during a race, it’s still worth checking out the Kentucky Derby Museum’s impressive trophy display, historical race footage, and jockey diaries.

Julie Keel first fell in love with yoga while practicing poses and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This fusion of yoga and the outdoors, she felt, deepened her connection between the mindfulness of each breath and her body's movements. Since founding Rivers Edge Yoga, she has helped her clientele seek that same link through both outdoor and indoor yoga classes. With class types from Yin to Hatha, her instructors emphasize combinations of challenging poses, breathing exercises, chanting, and meditation. The studio's Yoga In The Park classes—which start in the fall—give yogis a chance to flirt with trees while in tree pose and heckle begrudged hares while in tortoise pose.
