Meditation on the mind

‘Om’ your way to a happy place.


Features

Malena Lott
When you hear the phrase “Go to your happy place,” do you think about McDonald’s? The bar during happy hour? A beach far, far away?

Going the distance

Running your first marathon may be easier than you think.


Sports

Malena Lott

Have you reached a certain age (or weight) and decided it’s time to hit the pavement in running shoes? Some take it a step further — and farther — and set a goal to participate in local charity runs and marathons. Five-km races, half marathons (13.1 miles) and full marathons (26.2 miles) become the yellow-brick road for new runners.

Oh-la-la meets fa-la-la

Rub elbows with local celebs and win prizes at this holiday season kickoff.

So, tomorrow is the first day of December. How did that happen? Yeah, I'm not sure, either.

Anyway, December means holiday fun and parties abound. So, tomorrow, on this first day of December, get out and treat yourself at Trichology Salon, 14101 N. May.

The “Silver Belles Holiday Soiree” is the only way to kick off December holiday happenings. The event, which is free to attend, will feature eats from Deep Fork Grill, and you'll be treated to mini-sessions for holiday hair and makeup by the Trichology team. Hello, pampering!

While you're there, get a sneak peak of “Sleigh Ride: A Winter Anthology,” the newly released winter anthology featuring award-winning women authors, including my ShopGirl/Culture Chic predecessor, Jenny Coon Peterson. The cold-weather collection of short stories boasts local scribe Malena Lott, author of “Dating da Vinci,” “The Stork Reality” and “Fixer Upper.” She'll be on site signing books, so you definitely don't want to miss being able to say, “I have a signed copy of one of her books.”

As if good food, hair and makeup sessions, as well as talented locals isn't enough ... there's more!

Christmas will be coming early this year to a few lucky individuals. Partygoers can enjoy a slew of prizes. You could go home with a cocktail dress and shoes designed by local designer Johnathan Kayne, whom you might recognize from “Project Runway.”

Just by showing up, you could fill your stocking with a 1 ct. sapphire diamond from Samuel Gordon, gift cards from OECU Credit Union or a variety of other goodies.

Warm up with some local glamor and fame tomorrow night from 5 to 8 p.m. Bring your fabulous self, friends and enjoy red-carpet treatment right here in OKC.

Picture this

OKC photographers snap up Instagram.


Features

Malena Lott
Once upon a time, cameras were for the wealthy; and photography, as art, for professionals only. Thanks to smartphones and even smarter apps, photos and art have entered into a covenant for the masses at the altar of Instagram, which Apple named the 2011 App of the Year.

Locks and loaded

Avoid hairy situations with salon etiquette.


Features

Malena Lott
As Martin Luther once said, “The hair is the richest ornament of women,” and — with the amount of time and money we spend on it — he was right.
