A GIRL’S DAYDREAM BECOMES A REALITY

There is an old saying that “women make good cooks, but men make better chefs.” Setting aside the inaccuracy of this statement, it does tell us something important about the way that society looks at the roles of men and women in the kitchen. Women have traditionally taken on the role of family cook. But they were usually not seen as suitable candidates for the more complex and prestigious jobs of managing elaborate kitchens or bakeries in fancy restaurants.Continue reading

HOUSE TRAINING YOUR FAMILY PET

House training your family pet can be a challenge and frustrating experience for everyone including your pet. As a family it is critical to be consistent and remain focused on the task one day at a time.

It was hard being a woman in a male-dominated world where women were constantly suppressed but Maja found a way to rise above and become not just a pretty face.Continue reading

Write Your Own Ticket

“Write your own ticket! Set in motion powerful forces which we cannot explain.” These are the words of inspiration spoken by an unassuming entrepreneur in history, Brownie Wise, when she was the convocation speaker at a college in Mississippi in 1957.  Most of you are saying to yourself right now, “Who is Brownie Wise?”  Well, I did some digging in the Journal of Women’s History and I thought I’d share with you the woman who wasn’t supposed to be what she became.  You know what I mean…there are some people we just know are going to make history and be really successful in life.  Brownie Wise wasn’t that woman.Continue reading

Be Bold. Be Beautiful.

We go to salons because we want to feel different. Whether it’s a simple trim or dramatic color transformation, nothing can help a person feel confident and ready for anything like a day at the hair salon.

I walked into HUE Salons on Marketplace Drive looking for change and expecting palpable transformation.
