Solstice Dental & Aesthetics: Louisville, Ky. (Sensory Friendly Dentistry).




Earlier this month, I was invited to come check out Solstice Dental & Aesthetics. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to integrate a dental place on my blog, but I was told I would probably find a special reason to fall in love with it, and boy was she right!

Being a caregiver to a loved one comes with challenges all on its own. Being a caregiver to a loved one with special needs... magnifies that by 100... times 100 more. I think one of my biggest worries when my sons were little, had to be when they were sick. When you have a little one sick in the middle of the night, you *wish* they could tell you what was wrong. What hurts? What's bothering you? You're grateful for the day they can vocalize what's wrong, so you can figure out how to help them. When you have a child with special needs, sometimes that day unfortunately doesn't come. Or maybe it does, but your communication and guessing games have to be manipulated a little differently.

My oldest son was diagnosed with Autism, sensory disorder, developmental delay, & speech disorder at the age of 2.5. Communication between us has come *so* far, but little things can easily cause anxiety, and doctor visits can play a huge role in that. Sometimes Dr's, with little to no experience with special needs children, don't understand that the cold stethoscope can cause pain with children with a sensory disorder. Loud noises, bright lights, odd sounds just overload their systems, making it difficult for everyone involved. A bad experience can be very traumatizing, and unfortunately, sometimes laying a foundation for future negative experiences with Dr's.



Walking into Solstice Dental, it doesn't even feel like I'm at the Dentist. It's very welcoming and beautifully decorated. Copper fixtures, and imported textiles makes it seem warm and inviting.



I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Dr. Manning (owner and founder of Solstice Dental) had done all of her research, and had her own desensitization protocol meant specifically for people on the Autism Spectrum. With the assistance of a behavioral therapist, they came up with their own unique way to help ease patients into her office.




First they start you off with a pre-introduction: They give you their own clinic specific social story (blown away by this!!) that you can read daily to your child before their first appointment (and you can call to explain any aversions or preferences the patient has before their first appointment.). We personally use social stories in our home to help ease into a new routine. I've never heard of a Dr. offering this!

Next: You have the first visit: Pairing Appointment.
Goal here is for the Dr. to get to know the patient, and whether he/she is a good candidate for desensitization. Treatment may or may not happen, its all depending on if our child feels comfortable. (So important for kids to ease into treatments, less anxiety and less traumatizing).

Then: Subsequent Visits.
If its possible, they will schedule the visits once a week, same day, same time, to establish a routine (Personally, routine is so important in our home. This is amazing to me that they do this.).

Lastly, they recommend Bi-Monthly consult visits to keep the patient familiar with their office. If this is in their routine, dental visits become a norm for kids, less anxiety and less stress for everyone!

There's so much more I'd love to share about Solstice Dental, but that will be in upcoming posts. If you are a parent, or caregiver, of someone on the spectrum, I highly recommend you come and see Solstice for yourself. Dr. Manning is amazing, I wish more doctors offered this to their patients. A practice like this would have saved us a lot of anxious visits had one existed when my son was littler.

Dr. Manning is raising the bar, and I applaud her for offering this service. I know this is something very needed in the Autism Community, and how lucky this is now an option for those in need!

Rosaura Serna De Jaime; of Garden Prairie, Illinois. January 7th 1941 - September 27th 2017

 Desplácese hacia abajo para la traducción al español

Editors Note: On September 27th, 2017, my beloved grandmother, Rosaura Serna De Jaime, passed away quietly in her daughter's home (Beatriz Galvan) in Rockford, Illinois. When my grandmother passed away, I was very unsure of if (or when) I would write anything online. My grandmother was a very private person, and was not one to pour her personal life on the internet. I want to give her the respect she deserved, and write everything with a clear, and dignified manner. This is for you Vita.



(My grandmother and my hands together, taken with permission last summer. )


Love.

 When you look up the word Love in the dictionary, this is the definition you'll find:

Love;
1       a (1) : strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties
         * maternal love for a child 
         b : an assurance of affection 
2       :  warm attachment, enthusiasm, or devotion.


Above the definition in the dictionary, I'm positive you'll find the picture of my grandmother rested above it. If I could choose only one single word to describe my grandmother, Love would be it. 

My grandmother was one of the most (if not the most) selfless, beautiful woman I have ever had the blessing to meet. I believe when my great-grandmother named her Rosaura, she could not have chosen a more perfect name for her. My grandfather lovingly called her Rose (In Spanish, Rosa is short for Rosaura, meaning Rose). When I think of a rose, I picture it as a symbol of love, purity & devotion. These are all of the things my grandmother entailed.

Roses, while beautiful and delicate, have thorns built in that protect them, unlike some of the other more fragile species. That's exactly how I picture my grandmother, a beautiful graceful being, but a mother and wife that always protected her children and husband. My grandmother was the strongest woman I knew.

When you were in the presence of my grandmother, it was like this warm hug of beautiful energy. The gift of her love, affection, grace, and magic is unlike anything I could ever compare it to. The beauty of her being, was a gift to anyone around her. and I am proud and lucky to say I was blessed to have had her in my life.

Words cannot describe how much gratitude I have for my grandmother.




Because of her, I know what unconditional love is.
Because of her, I have an example of what the perfect wife and mother should
be.
Because of her, I am able to give my children a better life.
Because of her, I understand when to be selfless.
Because of her, I have strength.
Because of her, I love.
Because of her, I am.


When I say my grandmother was selfless, that would be the biggest understatement of the century. Her devotion and love for all of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, would be enough to put any saint to shame. She was the epitome of selflessness.

When I close my eyes, and picture my grandmother, I envision her in her old apartment, kneading the dough for warm tortillas, and the scent of the sizzling lard from the hot comal filling the air. I also envision my grandfather, sitting right besides her in the kitchen, opening up nuts and offering them to my giggling cousins as they scurried by. Whenever I stepped foot into their home, love is the only thing I felt.

My grandmother will always have a special place in my heart. Not a day goes by that she doesn't cross my mind, and my home will always continue to carry her traditions, and love of her family.

When my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, it was very difficult. Being far away, and knowing that she was going through this, was hard on all of my immediate family. The only thing that gave me personal peace of mind, was knowing that my Aunt (Tia) Beatriz was by her side. She unselfishly put her life on hold, left her job, and moved in with my grandmother to make sure that she was well taken care of. She was the best advocate for her. Because of her love, selflessness, and willingness to keep me updated on her condition, I knew that she was getting the best care possible. She was just as much my personal strength, as she was a guardian and caregiver of my grandmother. From the bottom of my heart Tia, I thank you. I know Vita and Vito are grateful of everything you and your family did to make sure she was okay.

Vita, I love you, and miss both you and Vito with all of my heart.<3

Nota del editor: El 27 de septiembre de 2017, mi querida abuelita, Rosaura Serna De Jaime, falleció tranquilamente en la casa de su hija (Beatriz Galvan) en Rockford, Illinois. Cuando mi abuelita falleció, no estaba muy segura de sí (o cuándo) escribiría algo en línea. Mi abuelita era una persona muy privada, y no era de los que le servían en su vida personal en Internet. Quiero darle el respeto que le merecía, y escribir todo de una manera clara y digna. Esto es para usted Vita.



(Mi abuelita y mis manos juntas, tomadas con permiso el verano pasado).



Amor.
Cuando busca la palabra Amor en el diccionario, esta es la definición que encontraras:


Amor;
1 a (1): fuerte afecto por otro que surge de lazos de parentesco o personales
* amor maternal por un niño
b: una garantía de afecto
2: apego cálido, entusiasmo o devoción.


Sobre la definición en el diccionario, estoy segura de que encontrarás la imagen de mi abuelita descansando sobre ella. Si pudiera elegir una sola palabra para describir a mi abuelita, Amor sería.

Mi abuelita fue una de las mujeres bellas que tuvo la bendición de conocer. Creo que cuando mi bisabuelita la llamó Rosaura, no podría haber elegido un nombre más perfecto para ella. Mi abuelito cariñosamente la llamó "Rose" (en español, Rosa es la abreviación de Rosaura, que significa Rosa). Cuando pienso en una hermosa rosa, la veo como un símbolo de amor, pureza y devoción. Estas son todas las cosas que mi abuelita conllevó.

Las rosas, aunque bellas y delicadas, tienen espinas incorporadas que las protegen, una diferencia de algunas de las otras especies más frágiles. Así es como yo imagino mi abuelita, un ser hermoso y elegante, pero una madre y una esposa que siempre protegio a sus hijos y su esposo. Mi abuelita era la mujer más fuerte que conocía.

Cuando estabas en presencia de mi abuelita, era como este cálido abrazo de hermosa energía. El regalo de su amor, afecto, gracia y magia es diferente a cualquier cosa con la que pueda comparelo. La belleza de su ser un regalo para cualquiera a su alrededor. y estoy orgullosa y afortunada de decir que tuve la suerte de haber tenido en mi vida.

Las palabras no pueden expresar mucho agradecimiento tengo para mi abuelita.



Gracias a ella, sé lo que es el amor incondicional.
Gracias a ella, tengo un ejemplo de lo que hablo haciendo la esposa y la madre perfectas
ser.
Gracias a ella, puedo darle a mis hijos una vida mejor.
Gracias a ella, entiendo cuándo ser desinteresada.
Gracias a ella, tengo fuerza.
Por ella, me encanta.
Por ella, yo soy.

Cuando digo que mi abuelita era desinteresada, esa era la mayor subestimación del siglo. Su devoción y amor por todos sus hijos, nietos y bisnietos sería suficiente para avergonzar a cualquier santo. Ella era el epítome de la generosidad.

Cuando cierro los ojos y me imagino mi abuelita, la imaginación en su antiguo apartamento, amasando la masa para tortillas calientes, y el aroma de la manteca chisporroteante del caliente que llena el aire. También imagino a mi abuelito, sentado justo al lado de ella en la cocina, abriéndose nueces y ofreciendo los a mis primos que sé ríen mientras corren. Cada vez que puse un pie en su casa, el amor es lo único que sentí.

Mi abuelita siempre tendrá un lugar especial en mi corazón. No pasa un solo día, que ella no pase por mi mente, y mi hogar siempre sigue transmitiendo sus tradiciones y el amor a su familia.

Cuando mi abuelita fue diagnosticada con cáncer, fue muy difícil. Estar muy lejos, y saber que estaba pasando por esto, fue difícil para toda mi familia inmediata. Lo único que me dio tranquilidad personal fue saber que mi tía (Tía) Beatriz estaba a su lado. Ella desinteresadamente puso su vida en espera, dejó su trabajo y se mudó con mi abuelita para asegurarse de que estaba bien cuidada. Ella era la mejor defensora para ella. Debido a su amor, desinterés y voluntad de mantenerme actualizado sobre su condición, sabía que estaba recibiendo la mejor atención posible. Ella era mi fuerza personal, ya que era guardiana y cuidadora de mi abuelita. Desde el fondo de mi corazón, Tia, te la agradezco. Sé que Vita y Vito están agradecidos por todo lo que hicieron usted y su familia para asegurarse de que ella estaba bien.

Vita, la quiero mucho, y extraño a usted, y a Vito con todo mi corazón. <3

SkynLounge Part 2 : ZenSkyn Makeup Line










Last week, I wrote about my *amazing* experience at SkynLounge. While I was there, I was introduced to their ZenSkyn Makeup line. I figured it was best to write my experience in a separate post so it wasn't so overwhelming!

I was invited by Skyn Lounge, to come and try out a few of their spa services (here in my previous post). After I was done with my facial and LED light therapy, I was treated to a complimentary makeup application (From what I understood, complimentary makeup applications are offered with all facials). I thought it was great that they offer makeup applications. I personally hate going out without makeup, and that's a huge perk for me. How convenient that I can walk in for a facial, get made up, and walk out to my next meeting. Perfect for someone on the go, and pressed for time!





Since I have very sensitive skin, I tend to be more aware of the ingredients in my makeup. Unfortunately for me, some products can be very irritating on my skin. While this is isn't a full review, I was impressed with the line, and thought it may be of interest to those looking for healthier makeup options.




I was sat down by Katie, who was more than happy to walk me through what products they have available. (I loved how informed she was about every product.)


        


She asked me what I normally applied, and proceeded to place primer, foundation, eyebrow powder, highlighter/bronzer, eyeliner, and a lip gloss.


I tend to have dry/dehydrated skin, so I usually opt for liquid foundations. "Dewy" products always sit better on my skin, and the Tinted Primer I used that day was fantastic! 3 different people complimented me on my skin.

Per their website: 

"Zen SKYN® Color Collection Tinted Primer SPF 20 is a light primer that evens tone and warms your complexion with a subtle radiance while minimizing the appearance of pores and protecting your skin against both UVA and UVB raysIdeal for daily use and post-clinical care skin treatment."


| ZenSkyn Tinted Primer $38 |




Another product that I felt really gave me a glow, was their bronzer duo:



| Mineral Blush Contour $37 |

The product was long lasting, and looked great on my skin! Per their website:

"Zen SKYN®  Mineral Blush/Contour Duo is the perfect duo for a luxurious, satin finish contour. Highlight your cheekbones with a beautiful rose-toned blush, and finish with the contouring power of the bronze power along the jaw line, nose, forehead, and cheeks."



| ZenSkyn Luxury Gloss $24 |


Last, but not least, I really liked the gloss they used. It had a really pretty color & sheen, and it didn't feel sticky like some glosses tend to do.

Per their website:

"ZenSKYN® Luxury Gloss uses a unique blend of oils to help condition and hydrate the lips to prevent lines and wrinkles from appearing.  This lightweight formula provides shine and long lasting hydration while also remaining hypoallergenic and paraben-free.  Our revolutionary gloss incorporates aloe, silica, Argan oil, Castor Seed oil, and Soybean oil for ultimate health and hydration."


I loved all of the products they used! I am a huge supporter of buying local, and I think these would make great gifts for the holidays. Right now they currently have a summer promotion of 50% off select products, using code SUMMER50 (per their site).

Thank you to SkynLounge for inviting me to try out your products.









Skyn Lounge: Louisville's Premiere Boutique Spa Pt. 1







Having my kids home for summer vacation, is always bitter sweet. I adore waking up with them in the mornings, lounging around at the park, watching them giggle with content as they run around care free... but the responsibility of keeping kids fed, clean, and ENTERTAINED 24/7 (with no respite) can take a toll on anyone! I feel like everyone deserves some time to themselves. When I was asked to review a spa, I was overjoyed to say the least. My babies would be heading back to school, and I would finally be able to get a little me time.




It's been at least a year since I've had a massage, so the idea of getting a bit of pampering sounded like heaven on earth! Stepping into Skyn Lounge felt *exactly* like that.







Walking in, the first thing you notice is the elegance of the space. Very serene decor, tranquil colors, it felt very inviting. (I've been to horribly busy spas, overtired employees trying to rush you out for their next client. This was not the case here! It was very peaceful, and the women were very attentive.)

         

   






I was offered water while I waited to be seen for my appointment.  I filled out a thorough questionnaire, (I suggest coming in at least 10 minutes early, so you have enough time to be thoughtful with your requests/ medical history.) and was promptly seen soon after.



  






The room I was taken into, had dim lighting, and soft serene music playing in the background. I was told to undress to my comfort level, and was handed a soft wrap. Climbing onto the massage table, and melting into the heated covers felt amazing.  




                
   


Katie was very attentive, and walked me through every procedure I had done. She gave me an amazing massage (I personally enjoy someone with a heavy hand, and appreciated that she made sure the pressure was okay.). She cleansed my make up, exfoliated my face, did extractions, and explained everything she was doing very thoroughly.


Towards the end of my facial, she did an LED light therapy (I was excited to try this, especially since I know this is very popular with celebrities!). I've seen this procedure splashed across social media, and I had been very curious to try it out.


Per their website:

"LED red or blue light therapy delivers light energy in a similar way that plant absorbs light energy from the sun. LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate skin's protein building and cell regeneration."

When I was done with my facial (I had complimentary make up done, coming up on my next post), I was happy to know they did makeup. (I always joke that I carry my face in my cosmetic bag, and its so true! I hate leaving my home without makeup. I loved that they offered that, so I wouldn't feel so naked running around doing my errands.).


My dry skin desperately needed some attention, and I couldn't be more happy with the results! Skyn Lounge gave me an amazing experience, and I can't wait to go back. If you're looking for a little pampering, (or maybe a gift for the Christmas season!), I HIGHLY recommend Skyn Lounge. I've already told my mom about the place, and I foresee a girl's night happening *very* soon.

Thank you Skyn Lounge for having me!

For more information on Skyn Lounge, check out their website! You can find a list of all of their facials and procedures (including waxes). (ask for Katie!)

Barre Code Middletown/Louisville : Elegance Meets Fitness






I don't know about you guys, but every so often I get this rush of energy & motivation to make some changes. I'll make my new to do lists, reorganize my home, purge things that I no longer need, and start modifying my health goals. Every time its a little different, but one thing remains the same. *Staying* consistent with my health goals is hard! Sometimes I have a wedding, or event, that will encourage me to do rapid weight loss. Other times I'll just feel sluggish, and decide maybe its time to modify my diet. Between our move to Middletown (LOVE), and other life changes going on, sometimes life just takes over. I find it harder and harder to get into a "healthy" lifestyle routine. I'm always weary of jogging, because finding other friends who have the time that coordinates with mine, impossible. I don't feel safe doing it alone (its the Chicago girl in me I guess lol.). I hate huge gyms because guys can be creepy, and I feel lost finding my way through the machines without a trainer. First world problems?


(yep.)


Luckily, I was invited to try out something a little different. I almost said no thanks (I wasn't emotionally ready to start fitness planning ha!), but I decided everything happens for a reason, and maybe the universe was telling me in its own way to GET MOVING. Plus, I scared myself a little when I realized I couldn't keep up with my boys energy at the park. Something has to give!

When I read BARRE listed as the place to visit, my first reaction was okay, how hard can this be?




Upon visiting The Barre Code, I realized I had remembered seeing it on my many Subway trips over the fall (hence why I need some exercise, ahem). From the outside walking in, the first thing you notice (aside from the cheerful smiles of everyone in there) is a trendy chandelier hanging in their gorgeous studio.




To the left, you'll see its fully stocked with stylish tank tops. I don't know who their designer is, but these are clothes I wouldn't mind running around in and get errands done. Amazing job on the designs, very trendy and cute.


           




The next thing I noticed? Their glam bar! (I call it their glam bar, because it literally looks like a glam room.) Its filled with vanities to get made up (I wouldn't have the time to run home and get ready in between exercise and running errands, especially before getting my boys from school. Makes it SO convenient to get ready, and go do my stuff!), along with cute changing rooms.




Walking down the hallway, you see their lockers.



 


Their workout equipment (everything looks very clean and tidy! So important to me.)




And of course, the positivity quotes. THIS. There's nothing more powerful than surrounding yourself with uplifting pictures, quotes, and things to get you motivated before your workout (and really visualizing it daily).




Entering the studio, I noticed it was clean, simple, and oddly serene. Before our workout, they dimmed the lights, and it felt very ZEN. Is it weird to mix zen and workout together? Amanda Hiner, (The studio owner) conducted her class in such a soothing voice, she pushed you to your own limits (offering modified versions of workouts, thank God), and it was refreshing to find such encouragement, and positive motivation to push you through it. I felt like I was dying (I hadn't worked out since the fall, & it kicked my butt.). By the end of the workout, I felt soooo good. I felt like it gave me a moment to clear my mind, focus on me, and she helped me push myself (and everyone in the class) to do my best.


 

   


 Upon speaking with her (a very sweet woman btw), I couldn't help but wonder what her motivation was to open The Barre Code - Middletown location. (I personally love meeting local woman entrepreneurs, and seeing what inspires them. Its neat to hear what a person's passions are, and what moves them.).

She mentioned she had been in Louisville for 15 years, and opened The Barre Code 2 years ago. Fitness has always been a huge part of her life, and the inspiration behind The Barre Code was the program, and the sense of strong community. In her opinion, The Barre Code separates themselves from others because of "The experience we create in our classes! You have a class with more then just a physical workout! We also offer more than just Barre; we have HIIT, Bootcamp Dance & Kickboxing".

She went on to mention, "All fitness levels are welcome. Modifications are given during a class so that you can tailor your workout for your body. Everybody leaves feeling successful!"

I also asked, do you have any advice for anyone struggling to get fit?

"Take it one step at a time. Enjoy the journey, and make lifestyle changes to reach your goals. Make sure it fits with your life!"

When asked if there was anything she would like someone considering her Barre classes to know?

"Anybody can do it!"

And I can attest to that :-) It was a great experience, and I can't wait to go back. Thank you to The Barre Code for having me, it was a pleasure.

Check them out!
