Enhancements: Facial Plastic Surgery & Laser Specialists

Enhancements: Facial Plastic Surgery & Laser Specialists

Every day, patients ask Dr. Scott Sackman to lift their tired faces, give them more hair and less belly fat. Then, they implore, please don’t let it hurt, and, oh, can you get me back to work by Monday? “Everybody wants magic: a younger you with no pain, no bruises,” said Sackman, adding that although magic wands have yet to be invented in the 30+ years he’s been in practi... »

Weatherman in Winter: Q&A with Ed Hanna

Weatherman in Winter: Q&A with Ed Hanna

Mark Twain supposedly said, “A great, great deal has been said about the weather, but very little has ever been done.” But today’s meteorologists make a strong effort to help us cope with the vagaries of sun, clouds, wind and rain. And during the winter months, we turn to them to stay abreast of travel conditions, temperatures, and how much we might (or might not) have to ... »

Conveniently located in The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley, Torre was the perfect place for dinner with my husband Tom after a night of shopping. Friendly mixolog... »

Some might think elementary school art teacher Angela Faidley was out of her mind for launching a business in her 22nd year of employment at St. Ann’s School in Emmaus. But, if you ask Faidley, teaching art during the day and running an art studio at night is “a dream come true.” “I have asked myself, ‘Why start a new career in the middle of my life,’” she said. “But then ... »

Dear Readers, Having been born and raised in Allentown, I can vividly recall shopping at Hess’s – the crown jewel of a bustling business and shopping district. And, long before Zappos entered my world, I shopped at Farr’s – THE place for shoes with THE best shoe repair shop on the east coast. (Okay, I’m a little biased because the cobbler was my grandfather, Louis Sp... »

Photo Finish

Photo Finish

Weddings, new babies, family gatherings – many of life’s most important moments are often captured on film, or more likely, digital media. Yet the fate of those photographs varies from one family to the next. Some homes proudly display photos for all to see while others, even with the best intentions, may leave photos sitting in a box or worse yet, the shots may remain stu... »

Yoga: “Breathe, What?, Sweat!”

Yoga: “Breathe, What?, Sweat!”

Yoga. Comes with a lot of preconceived notions doesn’t it? Some people love it; some people roll their eyes at it. For me, I take yoga for one reason and one reason only. One day I aspire to touch my toes. I can see them down there, but since I’m about a flexible as a telephone pole, I haven’t been able to touch them for decades. So around the first of the year, EVERY year... »
