What Are Your “Little Luxuries”?
Every now and then, it’s nice to splurge on something for yourself. You know, a little luxury for you and you alone. Some folks like to head to the spa for a relaxing facial, pedicure, or manicure; others like to splurge on good food, wine, and mouthwatering desserts (nom!) Maybe your idea of a small indulgence is an uninterrupted hour of peace and quiet to settle in with a good book (which, I’m hearing is “Fifty Shades of Grey” by E.L. James. Remind me to pick up a copy along with a “Do Not Disturb” sign;)
Whatever your “little luxuries” are, we’re celebrating them in the May/June issue of G!, on stands Island wide as of Thursday, May 17. Really, couldn’t we all use a little luxury in our lives? Here are just a few of the small indulgences you’ll be treated to this month:
Grooming the Guy
Looking more like Chewbacca than Clooney? Manscaping season is in full swing on PEI, and guys everywhere are shedding their layers of man fur and opting for some traditional and um, not-so-traditional treatments (nose hair waxing, anyone?) Nicole Mead, owner/operator of Wax!t waxing studio in Charlottetown and this month’s G! cover model, weighs in with her opinion on manscaping and why guys shouldn’t be afraid to go bare in Cassandra Bernard’s “Grooming the Guy” on page 40.
Oh, baby! Zestycook Cory Gallant let his inner chocoholic let loose in the kitchen with three of the most decadent, divinely-inspired chocolate creations guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. Chocolate Mousse, Brownie Pudding Cake, Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Balls (dietician approved!)…warning: your mouth may start watering uncontrollably once you see what Zesty’s been up to this month!
Flats, peep toes, corked wedges, colourful stilettos…you’re going to need a bigger closet once you see this season’s hottest trends in shoes! Kimberly Rashed gives us the low down on what’s hot in shoes this summer, from styles to colours – all available right here on PEI!
Chardonnay & The Natural Face Lift
When G! Editor Meredith Morrison and Elizabeth Landrigan visited Mystical Touch Therapeutics on Central Street in Summerside to test Sharon Quann’s new skincare line, Quannessence Skincare, the results were, shall we say, “uplifting” to say the least! Check out the ultimate luxury facial treatment everyone should try in “Beauty in a Bottle” on page 42!
Plus, we’ve got all of your favourites – He Said She Said, The Myth and The Madness, Liquid Assets, G! Eats, and much, much more! We’re also introducing a brand new contributor to the G! Team – Keely Turner debuts her new pop culture column “Keelywood” in the May/June issue, so be sure to check out why she thought The Hunger Games was about bacon on page 20!
