THE FINAL WEEKS OF

I

t’s hard to believe that August

is upon us, and before you

know it, it will be time to start

back up on a daily routine—

no more sleeping in—and heading out for

the annual back-to-school shopping trip.

But … summer is not over yet! There are

still plenty of long days and sunshine to

enjoy, so take the time to embrace each

day, filling it with thoughtful actions and

intentions, creating many more memories

along the way.

It’s time to soak in what’s left of summer!

Whether it’s meandering through town,

patronizing your local shops and restaurants;

spending a day out on the water kayaking,

paddle boarding or boating; attending a

community concert or event; or relaxing in

the yard with family and friends; there’s no

wrong way to enjoy these long, warm days.

And before we know it, the leaves will be

turning and the temperatures dropping.

As the fun-filled days wind down, sit back

and relax with another wonderful edition

of Coeur d’Alene Living Local. There are so

many wonderful things happening in our

community, and we continue to be honored

to share what we’ve discovered for you, our

reminded of the wonderful place we live, the

businesses that help our community thrive,

and the incredible people who surround us

daily. We are truly fortunate to be a part of

such a caring community.

Memories are ready to be made, and Coeur

Tread Lightly

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT RUG FOR YOUR HOME

By Deann Hammer, Interior Designer

Carpets are the foundation of our home. With summer in full

swing, many of us are shoe-free, and not only do carpets

visually impact the appearance of our home, but foot feel

and durability is of great importance as well.

Carpets should be taken seriously and purchased for

longevity, and many are considered fine art. With the popularity of

hardwood over the last decade, area rugs have taken center stage—and

are here to stay. Carpets provide an opportunity to add pops of color

and create a design theme that is unique to you. If you are interested in

decorating your home to the next level, a quality rug is a great first step

toward a room transformation.

When selecting wall-to-wall carpet, you want to look at the fiber content.

Nylon or wool is still the best choice. There are many other options, but

olefin, and other new-to-market fibers, easily crush and soil, and are not

made to last. I personally prefer a cut and loop for wall to wall. Some

fibers are looped like a Berber, mixed with cut fibers, giving the carpet

a nice visual appeal. I like low pile wall-to-wall carpets in multicolor so

that it gives the look of texture and hides foot traffic. The cut fibers in a

cut and loop also prevent the carpet from “running.” If a yarn gets loose

in a vacuum, it will not pull through the whole run like a Berber will.

Large, patterned carpets are fun in an office, bonus room or master

bedroom to add some character to a space. I also like to use patterns on

stair runners for interest.

There are staggering differences in the quality of area rugs. One of the

largest mistakes people make when purchasing an area rug is that if they

have a busy household, they think a less-expensive rug will be a better

choice, as it can be tossed when it wears out, or easily cleaned. This is

not the case! A high-quality wool rug will be much easier to clean and

will save you money in the long run, as it will last for many, many years.

The best quality wool rugs will have longer fibers that will not shed and

will maintain their pile height (not flatten with foot traffic). An average

cost for a “better” rug will range between $1,500 to $5,000 for an 8x10-

Carpets should be taken seriously and

foot rug. They can top the charts at over $10,000, and if it is vintage, a rug

can be $10,000 to $20,000 for estate sized (larger than 8x10 feet).

Retail rugs sold online (like Pottery Barn), that sell for around $800 or

less, are typically made with short fibers and shed like crazy—steer clear

from those! When purchasing, try to run your fingers across them to see

if they shed. Shedding carpets are awful. They make a mess of your home

and really bother those with allergies.

I love silk rugs. They are ultra luxurious and can last lifetimes. The colors

are more vivid, but they are very expensive. I paid $7,500 for a 4x6-foot

rug more than a decade ago. But I love it! It is truly a work of art and

looks exactly the same as the day I purchased it.

Consider color. An area rug is a great opportunity to add life to a room.

Handmade rugs are the best, as they are not stiff, have natural dyes that

are rich and luxurious, and have a nice “flop,” meaning they bend and

move and are not stiff. When you run your hand over a high-quality

handmade wool rug, it should feel almost like silk.

Machine-made rugs are here to stay as well if your budget does not allow

for a real handmade wool or silk rug. These are often made from recycled

soda bottles and have a flatter feel to them. The current trend is more

muted colors and traditional “burned out” or vintage-looking styles. An

average cost for a polypropylene rug is around $400 to $600 for an 8x10-

foot rug. Make sure to buy a premium pad to place beneath your rug as

well. I use a felt pad with a rubber back that stops the carpet from sliding

on the floor, while adding that extra cushy feel under foot. These pads

cost between $150 to $300 for an 8x10 and will extend the life of your

rug, as they allow the carpet to lift up off of the floor and maintain its

pile height.

here to cause delight,” Doug

Faude says. “To give people

“We’re

something that captures how

they feel when they’re fishing, hiking, skiing,

surfing, or just hanging out in the woods or on

the water, and to make enjoying those moments

even more satisfying.”

Doug is the owner and operator of Cognito

Brands (220 North 1st Avenue, Sandpoint), an

apparel retailer that specializes in wearable art

that functions as high-performance gear made by

and for outdoor sports enthusiasts. The company,

founded six years ago as Fincognito, combines

Doug’s passion for fishing, hiking, skiing and

other outdoors sports with the knowledge and

experience gained over more than 27 years in the

apparel business.

“When I found Sandpoint, I was blown away with

how vibrant and active this community is: All the

outdoor sports, as well as the great brewpubs, a

winery, the theater, art walks, live music … We’re

an artsy, beery, foodie community surrounded by

unbeatable outdoor recreation. For me, though,

what really made Sandpoint home is the people.

Everyone here is invested in making this beautiful

community even better. All that positive energy

creates an incredible vibe that’s equal to just

about any major city you can think of, and with

a welcoming, small-town atmosphere you won’t

find in big cities.

“When I chose to make my home here, I wanted

to be part of that spirit of community investment,

so I started a business that reflected my passion

for many of the reasons people love living in or

visiting this area. In fact, I just got back from

four days floating the Coeur d’Alene, fishing and

hiking. Whether I’m floating the river, fly fishing,

taking the boat out on the lake, or skiing down

Schweitzer, I want gear that holds up, that makes

the experience even better.”

Doug says, while all Cognito apparel and

accessories have been rigorously field tested, what

really captures the imagination is the incredible

art, images that evoke the delight of exploring

and playing outdoors in and around North

Idaho. Doug invests a lot of time researching

art and artists, looking for authentic scenes and

artistic interpretations that convey the challenge,

joy and wonder of being immersed in the natural

beauty of wild places.

“Most people don’t really know what to expect

when they find our store. They walk by, glance

in the windows. Then they step inside, and their

jaw drops. The most common response we hear

is, ‘Wow! I didn’t know anything like this existed.

It’s exactly what I wanted!’ That reaction is why

we do this. I was that guy, someone who loved

being outdoors and wanted high-quality apparel

with a unique artistic style that reflected what I

love doing and performance that enhances the

experience when I’m on the water, in the woods,

or skiing down the mountain.

“There’s no better place to build this business than

Sandpoint,” Doug adds. “This is an incredible

place to play outdoors. And, at the end of the day,

it’s an incredible place to grab some wine, sit out

by the lake, and watch the sun go down.

“Those are the moments we feel fully alive, when

we’re immersed in the beauty and wonder of

God’s creation. That’s what I mean by delight, and

that’s the feeling we want to reflect. God created

something truly wonderful, and we’re able to

share that delight with others.

“Those moments, those feelings, is what I hope

everyone experiences when they wear Cognito.

If they’re local, it’s a celebration of our unique

Sandpoint lifestyle. And, if they just came for a

visit, it’s a reminder of the amazing time they had,

and a reason to visit again soon.”

CREATING A SATISFYING SUMMER

SEASON

The perfect sips, trips and tips

Let’s connect and

help you find

your perfect home!

(BPT) - AFTER A YEAR LIKE NO OTHER,

EVERYONE IS SEEKING WAYS TO

CELEBRATE THE SUMMER AND ENJOY

THOSE LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE SUCH

A BIG DIFFERENCE. You don’t have to be a

wine expert to know that the right wine or cocktail

for the occasion can make any get-together truly

outstanding. Whether you’re hanging out with

friends around the grill or embarking on an epic

road trip, here are tips for relearning how to enjoy

the moment.

Stemware for everywhere. Or better yet, stemless

wine glasses! Find unbreakable, shatterproof,

insulated wine glasses

online that are just

perfect for your next

patio party, beach day

or glamping trip. There

are plenty of choices for

insulated tumblers and

coolers to keep wine

and other beverages

chilled and safe, no

matter where you go.

You don’t have to be

a wine expert to know

that the right wine

or cocktail for the

occasion can make

any get-together truly

outstanding.

Choose wines that

are bright, light and

just right. Whether

relaxing with friends on the beach or around your

backyard fire pit, enjoy a light, refreshing white

wine that’s fragrant, vibrantly fruity and crisp.

Keep cool. When you’re enjoying an outdoor

get-together, you’ll want to prevent wine from

getting too warm—even reds. One trick is to

store wine bottles in a cooler or a bucket filled

with ice, salt and water. The salt in the water

helps bring the freezing point of water below 32

degrees Fahrenheit.

Inspire your inner mixologist. Did you know

wines can be used to create refreshing summer

drinks? Add seasonal fruit or herbs to transform

a favorite wine into a cooling cocktail.

Rediscover wine country. When you’re itching to

get away from it all, why not sip your way through

a tasting flight at a winery? With over 11,000

wineries across the U.S., you have plenty to choose

from. You can even find hidden gems in parts

of well-known Napa, like

the Maxville Winery in the

Chiles Valley.

Fire up the grill and chill.

When you’re grilling

outdoors, choosing a wine

that complements whatever

you’re barbecuing can be

challenging, but when you

find one that can really

bring out the flavor of your

food, everything tastes that

much better.

Here’s an easy rule of thumb: For traditionalists,

burgers, ribs and steaks pair perfectly with a

Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel or even a Malbec.

For lighter fare like grilled fish, chicken, pork

chops or veggies, choose a lighter wine to pair

with it, like a Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc or a

The Fountain of Youth in Your Backyard

THE BEAUTY OF ESSENTIAL OILS FOR ALL THINGS HOME AND HEALTH

By Jenny Wiglesworth

Acne, zits, dry skin, peeling, sores and blackheads are skin

irritations or infections that most of us are all too familiar with.

Now, I don’t claim to be a dermatologist, but anyone having lived

through their teenage years and early 20s knows something about skin

and potential skin protectors, cleansers or, dare I say, “defenders”?

If you’re like me, and grew up in the ‘90s, Noxzema was my skin’s best

friend. Or at least I thought it was. The thing about cleansers like this, and

the majority of the selection out there, is they’re full of toxic chemicals

that actually end up harming the skin, at a deeper, cellular level. After

using chemically induced cleaners like this, my face became a warzone.

Like most of us, every time my face looked worse than before, I switched

to a new product, hoping this new product would be the answer. Some

were high-end department store brands, while others were off the shelf.

No matter the brand or amount I was willing to pay for said product, the

results remained the same.

Little did I know that the solution was lying beneath me—literally

beneath me, in the earth’s soil. The primary ingredients in most organic

cleaners I began trying were essential oils. Recently, essential oils’ healing

properties have been questioned, because they’ve been popularized by

multi-level companies. Essential oils, in and of themselves, have powerful

healing properties, which is why they have been so popularized, and the

primary ingredients in the organic products that I found to have worked.

Other useful ingredients of the earth included in the cleansers are:

Sunflower oil (known carrier oil), chamomile, apple cider vinegar,

rosemary, echinacea, licorice and honey. Depending on the product,

there are a variety of ingredients, but they’re all derived from organic

sources (the earth). Isn’t that amazing! The most exciting part of this

process occurs within the “mirror effect.” Whenever I try something new,

I like to take a picture of myself in the mirror—step one of the mirror

effect. After a few days, I’ll take another, and then another after the first

week and, finally, one more at the end of the month. In the past, the

“mirror effect” continually disappointed my spirit. Many times, there

was no change, and oftentimes my skin was even worse. Can you relate?

However, with these new organic products, the effect was amazing! For

the first time since pre-puberty, my skin was not only clean but smooth

and pure. And to think it came from my backyard (not literally).

I’m not a dermatologist, so I cannot say what will work for your skin,

but I can say that from years of trying multiple products, organic, clean

lines work for me. Examples or product names you may ask? I absolutely

hate to leave companies out, but I will tell you the rule that I use to pick

product. I pick cleaners or skin products like I pick my food—look at

the label. If you cannot understand or do not know what one of the

ingredients on the label is, don’t purchase them. Apart from this, “jump

in” and begin to try various brands. It may be intimidating at first, but

most places will allow for you to return free of charge if it isn’t working.

It’s time to say hello to luscious, youthful skin—all we really need is a

little beauty from the earth.

It’s time to discover the many benefits of essential oils. Not only can

essentials oils be used for their health and beauty benefits, but for a variety

of things, like keeping those pesky pests away, to gardening, cleaning and

used as air fresheners. A home is not complete without essential oils.

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT TO THE ANNA SCHINDLER FOUNDATION

By Jillian Chandler

The North Idaho community is invited to attend the 11th Annual

Anna Schindler Memorial Golf Tournament at the Links Golf

Club in Post Falls. Scheduled for Saturday, September 11,

attendees will enjoy a wonderful day for an incredible cause.

“Every year we have held this event, it has grown in attendance,

excitement, and been successful in raising much-needed funds,” says

Polly Schindler, founder of The Anna Schindler Foundation with

husband Joe. “Our inaugural year, 2011, we raised $18,000; the 2020

event, despite COVID, raised a net profit for our mission of $170,000.”

Funds raised go directly to support families with financial needs and

Anna’s Homes. With some treatments lasting a few months, while

others up to three years, the family’s income drops significantly while

expenses for hospitalization or additional travel increase. The Anna

Schindler Foundation provides assistance with all living expenses,

including gas, groceries, rent/mortgage, utilities, car payments and

repairs, medical bills, and even funeral costs.

Two townhomes have been built on Spokane’s South Hill to temporarily

house pediatric oncology families when their child is immune

compromised in the midst of critical parts of treatment.

More than 400 families have been helped through the foundation since

2011, with Anna’s Homes housing more than 24 families since fall of 2018.

“This fundraiser is a high priority because this event raises a large

portion of the funds for our Family Support Program and Anna’s

Homes. Our event will show you the faces and families who are going

through the hardship of having a child with cancer. Our program

shows you where and how your donated money is spent,” says Polly.

You don’t have to be an avid golfer to attend the event! This fundraising

effort is for golfers and non-golfers alike. In addition to the 9-Hole

Scramble, with a shotgun start at 12:30pm, there is a fabulous dinner

and auction beginning at 4pm, with music, games and speakers.

The Anna Schindler Foundation was created to honor Joe and Polly’s

own daughter Anna, who battled, and lost her fight to, childhood

cancer at just 7 years old. The Schindlers launched their 501c3 with the

intention of giving forward $5,000 annually to another family. Since its

inception, the Inland Northwest community has fallen in love with the

cause they believe in, stepping forward to support families in the fight

for their child’s life.

A Way to Say ‘Thank You’

Give the gift of locally made, award-winning gourmet confections

By Jillian Chandler

In the summer of 2019, the North Idaho community was first treated to

the delicious and artfully crafted soft brittle of Robinson Soft Brittle—a

premium boutique confectionery based in Hayden.

With a dream of one day turning her talent for baking into a full-time

business, Pamela Robinson’s passion would flourish into a fulfilling career.

She and her husband Todd, an entrepreneur, would put Todd’s business

skills to the test. Before long, Pamela would find herself the founder and

owner of Robinson Soft Brittle, where she has been utilizing her culinary

skills to delight the taste buds of those around her—both near and far.

“Our first product (soft peanut brittle) debuted in July at the Coeur d’Alene

Makers Market event at the Coeur d’Alene Resort, where we nearly sold

out,” recalls Pamela. “A week later, we sold so much at the Downtown

Coeur d’Alene Street Fair that we knew we were on to something big. A

few weeks later, at the 2019 Schweitzer Fall Fest, we brought hundreds of

pounds of candy to sell. But by Saturday night we realized we were going

to run out. So, we drove back to Hayden and worked through the night,

getting back in time to grab two hours of sleep before heading back up the

mountain. We knew this business idea had legs.”

In the beginning, the focus was on soft peanut brittle (a Pacific Northwest

favorite). The pair then launched their own unique creations including

liqueur-based English toffees, several unique specialty chocolates, and new

original soft brittle flavors. And their customers have been eating it up!

The couple is excited to share their new eGifting platform, BrittleGift.com.

Launched May of this year, their award-winning confections are delivered

right to the recipient’s door—and in beautiful fashion. As you open the

elegant gift box, you’ll unearth Robinson Soft Brittle delights, individually

wrapped, beneath the black-and-white striped tissue paper. Truly a

special—and thoughtful—gift for its recipient.

The platform is ideal for small business owners to large business

corporations, or anyone looking to gift someone with locally made North

Idaho gourmet confections. “This type of site is especially good for reaching

work-from-home or remote work team members,” adds Todd.

The service bridges the growing distance between companies and their

clients and remote work staff. Pamela emphasizes, “Those who connect

on a personal level succeed at the ‘infinite game’ by cementing personal

bonds, making clients feel valued and team members feel recognized

and appreciated.”

Though eGifting has come with challenges, from left-over balances,

checkout issues, or even having to add funds, the Robinsons have eliminated

those obstacles with their specialized platform: The purchaser sets the

price and size of the gift and personalizes the greeting, or selects one of

their pre-uploaded company-branded cards. The recipient is then notified

via any of several channels and gets to custom-design the gift box contents

from a selection of unique original confections, and inputs their mailing

address. The gift box is hand-packed within a few days and shipped directly

to them. Options range from $35 to $85, including expedited nationwide

cold-pack shipping, and custom-branding is available. “It’s quick, easy and

secure,” assures Pamela.

The Robinsons look forward to what the future holds for them and their North Idaho

business. They survived the pandemic with amazing support from the North Idaho

community, and they are excited to grow regionally with retailers and through their new

online platform.“We simply cannot say enough about what it means to be a business

owner in Northern Idaho,” shares Pamela. “Every level of ‘Idaho entity’ seems to have an

attitude of wanting to see us succeed as an Idaho small business.”

She adds that she finds the local farmers market artisans willing to work together to help

each other succeed, as many small business owners alert each other to great opportunities

for income and exposure, offer help and collaboration, and redirect spending to support

each other.

“We are ultimately thankful for our friends and family who supported us both emotionally

and financially, our local community and officials, and for the grace of God in getting us

where we are now.”

Their confections are available for purchase through select area retailers across the Pacific

Northwest, at special events, or online. Will-call pick up for locals is by appointment.

The couple is excited to share their new eGifting

platform, BrittleGift.com. Launched May of this year,

their award-winning confections are delivered right

to the recipient’s door—and in beautiful fashion.

Many Memorable Summers

CAMP LUTHERHAVEN CELEBRATES ITS 75TH ANNIVERSARY

BY TAYLOR SHILLAM

The values behind Lutherhaven Ministries are built on connection:

with new friends, with loved ones, with life’s purpose, and

with God. Since 1946, tens of thousands have been campers

at Lutherhaven, forging meaningful relationships and creating lifechanging

memories while immersed in North Idaho’s natural beauty.

This year, Lutherhaven celebrates 75 years of inclusivity, growth,

friendship, play and praise. They proudly welcome “every camper of

every age and every ability” to their summer camps, seasonal events and

year-round retreats.

“If you take a walk through the beautiful 60-acre forest of Camp

Lutherhaven, on the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene, and ask some passerby

what they love most about this camp, they’ll likely say something along

the lines of, ‘This is my happy place! The lake, the woods, the cabins,

the people,’” said Nicole Duke, marketing and development associate for

Lutherhaven Ministries. “But then they’d pause to contemplate, before

adding, ‘What makes this space most special is it’s where I feel closest

to God.’”

Lutherhaven was founded when a group of men from different Spokanearea

churches and different Lutheran denominations organized

themselves into the Spokane Lutheran Men’s Club for the purpose of

“working together, singing, eating and enjoying Christian fellowship.”

When a club member presented an opportunity to purchase property

in a centralized location on Lake Coeur d’Alene, the group took the

opportunity to gather support from Lutheran churches across the

Inland Empire.

Five families invested $50 each each to purchase those 12 acres on Mica

Bay and make Camp Lutherhaven a reality. Their vision was to create a

sacred space of respite for families as service members returned from

world war.

Now, Lutherhaven Ministries has been serving the Inland Northwest

communities for 75 years, and remains committed to being a safe, happy,

faith-nurturing haven for everyone. Its mission, to encounter creation,

create community and commune with Christ, has been shared among

generations of campers.

“Lutherhaven has never belonged to a single person or entity; this sacred

space is your space, here to serve the community,” Duke said.

While the organization is historically Lutheran, they emphasize that all

are welcome. The services and events offered at Lutherhaven Ministries’

various properties are diverse, to offer

something for every age and every member of

the family.

Their properties host events for families,

schools, churches, businesses and other

community groups, with a wide selection

of spaces available to rent including private

cabins, treehouses, yurts, tent and RV spaces,

all accompanied by full dining services.

Further emphasizing inclusivity, Lutheran

Ministries stays committed to ensuring no

camper is ever turned away due to financial

reasons. Over 63 percent of campers attend free

or at reduced costs each year.

This year, Camp Lutherhaven is thrilled to be

back after 2020’s widespread cancellations of

gatherings, events, outdoor dining and more.

“COVID decimated outdoor ministries around

the world,” Duke shared. “Nationwide, 333,000

overnight campers, 30,000 day campers and

13,000 summer staff missed out on summer

camp.” She reported Lutherhaven’s partner

camps around the U.S. had lost a combined

total of over $260 million in revenue last year,

with thousands of jobs eliminated.

Like many organizations across the world, it

was one of the toughest years Lutherhaven

Ministries had ever faced, but they returned

to the summer of 2021 with nothing but hope.

“Lutherhaven pulled through with resiliency,

community and optimism to not just survive,

but thrive,” Duke said.

They plan to continue serving others for another

75 years, and beyond. They have already set an

expansion in motion.

Camp Lutherhaven will soon break ground

on a new 8,000-square-foot retreat center

overlooking Lake Coeur d’Alene. The retreat

center will offer eight bedrooms with full

bathrooms for family and adult retreats, with

accommodations for at least 16 to 32 people,

and the opportunity for more. It will serve as

an adult and family “renewal center,” and will

be divided into three living spaces, allowing the

option for one large group or three separate,

smaller gatherings.

Their seasonal events include spring and fall

quilting retreats, the Deck the Halls Family

Winter Retreat and Valentine’s getaways,

with family cabin rentals, school and outdoor

education weeks and more available to the

community throughout the calendar year.

Shoshone Mountain Retreat and Ranch is

located on the North Fork of the Coeur d’Alene

River and offers horseback trail riding in the

summer. North of the ranch, McPherson

Meadows takes visitors 20 miles off-grid to

experience a wilderness retreat at the Renner

House, a fully furnished space with a full kitchen

space, meeting area, and accommodations for

almost 30 guests.

In celebration of reaching 75 summers, Camp

Lutherhaven will host a celebration on Saturday,

September 25. Attendees are promised a lively

celebration with music, food, activities and

worship. The event lasts noon to 4pm, and all

are invited to share in the festivities. Online

RSVPs are required.

“It’s great to be back,” Duke said, reflecting

on challenges of the last year. This summer,

Lutherhaven’s camp programs are fully open,

filled to capacity, and with a few simple healthconscious

protocols, are packed with all the

fun of the traditional camps they’re known and

loved for.

‘SEED TO SEAL’

LOCAL YOUNG LIVING FARM DOES

SOMETHING NEW

BY RACHEL KELLY

Pharmaceuticals (especially medications

that regulate anxiety or depression)

not only have a hefty price tag but are

often laden with overbearing and damaging

side effects. It has many locals looking into

alternative medications, even unregulated

ones. There are many such proactive remedies

that are backed by doctors, such as clinical

therapy, art therapy, dietary changes, exercise

and aromatherapy. Essential oils fall into the

aromatherapy category, although in the world

of high-quality essential oils such as Young

Living, it doesn’t just stop at aroma. In an

unregulated market littered with products that

possess low levels of essential oil mixed with

mineral oil, Young Living stands out from the

crowd. The business grows not necessarily

through a masterful marketing plan, but by

honest manufacturing and the testimony of

its users.

Young Living members attest to the validity

of the oils, their life experiences providing

testament to the efficacy of Young Living.

Essential oils are the essence of plants with lifegiving

properties, providing you a concentrated

dose of nature’s healing gifts. For example,

citrus provides an invigorating aroma and

concentrated doses of vitamin C. Eucalyptus

is a natural cleanser and rejuvenator, purifying

the air. Lavender is good for respiratory illness.

There are oils for anxiety, rest, skin health

and immunity, to name a few. These are the

benefits of nature that essential oils naturally

imbibe. However, there is much to be said for

the importance of essential oil quality, without

which the benefits of the oil dissipate.

Young Living essential oils are grown and

distilled through what Young Living has coined

the “Seed to Seal” quality agreement. This

agreement traces the path of oil production

from the plant to the bottle. This agreement

was born out of a pillar of science developed

by Young Living founder D. Gary Young.

Beginning in 1985, Mr. Young began to travel

the world, working with prominent perfumers,

aromatherapists and historians. In these

travels he developed a passion for essential

oils and their health benefits, recognizing the

importance of quality and purity. It is due to

this that Young Living oils can be used for

a variety of health purposes, from creating

calming environments to ingesting the edible

oils for a high concentration of nutrients. Young

Living essential oils are grown and produced

locally, with farm events that connect buyers

and members directly to the product. The first

of such farms was established by Gary and

Mary Young themselves in 1992 in St. Maries,

Idaho. They began with growing lavender;

38

| COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL


US

two years later, Young Living Essential Oils

was established.

Highland Flats in Naples, Idaho, is another

such farm. They produce the Idaho Balsam

Fir, Idaho Blue Spruce and the White Fir for

oil distillation. Every year, Young Living hosts

the Winter Harvest and Spring Restoration

events to allow members to experience the

Seed to Seal process firsthand—and to connect

the farm directly to its community. Highland

Flats has a long 20-year history of giving back

to the community economically, but the farm

also gives back to the Earth through sustainable

farming practices. They do not take from the

land, they give back to it.

“We practice chemical free, regenerative

agriculture to contribute to the health of our

soil, air and water,” shares Michael.

The land itself was bought before the

destruction of a grove of “Christmas” trees

could be completed: They had grown too tall.

“In 1998, Gary was exploring for potential

botanicals when he found a field of Grand Fir

trees being bulldozed and prepared for burning.

He made an agreement with the farm’s owner to

take all the overgrown trees instead of paying to

have them cleared,” says Michael.

Those trees were bought and, years later,

harvested for oil. This sparked the beginning of

a longtime relationship between Young Living

and the land. Land that today is known as

Highland Flats Tree Farm.

For years, trees scheduled for harvest had to

be transported to the Saint Maries distillery.

This was over a three-hour drive, and was

necessary regardless of inclement weather. In

2013, a distillery was constructed in Naples and

has been in year-round production since the

beginning of 2014.

Their distillery process is unique to this area

in its purity, transparency and accountability.

The distillery process begins and ends

with an attention to nature and sustainable

farming practices; The soil is studied in their

onsite laboratory for healthy nutrients and

bacteria. Live soil, versus empty sanitized soil,

is what makes their trees so full of its natural

invigorating health properties. Young Living

Highland Flats Tree Farm works with nature to

do what it does best: heal. For the next part of

the distillation process, the branches and leaves

are collected. The organic matter is then put

in large sealed stainless-steel vats. These vats

are then filled with steam. In turn, the steam

becomes infused with the oil. The steam travels

COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL | 39


through stainless steel tubing into a glass canister. Through the

natural process of cooling, the steam turns into water and sits

in the bottom of the glass. The cooled oil filters to the surface.

The oil is then collected and brought to the laboratory, where

it is tested and refined for purity.

“The farm at Highland Flats has a long history of providing

exemplary products to the community,” says Michael. That

history is felt here in Northern Idaho. Highland Flats farm

is a place of life and purity. Local wildlife aids in the growth

of healthy trees, and its farmers work in tandem with those

efforts. Young Living believes light and life to be an important

part of how they do business, and the farm in Highland Flats

is no exception. From seed to tree, from tree to oil, and from

oil to people, Highland Flats illustrates what Young Living is

for the community: a place of rest and respite; a lifestyle of

health that permeates all its parts.

“The Highland Flats Farm fully employs 13 people in addition

to seasonal workers in the summer,” states Michael. “We have

a complete logging operation with economic impacts to many

local businesses from auto parts to catering and nurseries. An

average year will bring a few hundred international customers

to stay and experience North Idaho while visiting our farm.”

Their logging operations bring significant value to local

landowners and forest health, while minimizing waste and

sharing unique Idaho forest products around the world, he

adds.

Highland Flats Tree Farm and St. Maries Lavender Farm are

not the only Young Living farms in existence. The company

hosts unique sustainable farms around the world, including in

places such as France, Ecuador, Oman and Croatia. The farm

in Oman is especially unique in that it is the only company

in the world that has received permission to distill the Sacred

Frankincense oil for the Western world. Young Living doesn’t

ask that you trust them simply because of the width of their

brand or the size of their company. They earn that trust

with farms that are held accountable by its people and local

communities. Farms that you can experience firsthand and

hear personal testimony as to its accuracy. Young Living is

truly a company that feeds both its community and its land.

In this way they set themselves up as an unarguable benefit.

Transparency is a rare commodity these days, and Young

Living is new in its unembarrassed approach toward business.

With high-quality products and testimonials that follow their

progress, what’s there to hide?

If you’re interested in trying out the oils for yourself, Young

Living oils can be bought online at YoungLiving.com or from

a brand partner (members receive a discount).

From seed to tree, from tree to oil, and from oil to people, Highland Flats illustrates

A World of Fashion in North Idaho

Multiple store locations to best suit your style

By Jillian Chandler

Celebrating 20 years in business, Brooke Miller has expanded

what began as a one-store operation to now encompass four

store locations—with a fifth one on the way!

Opened in June of 2001 in Coeur d’Alene, Beau Monde has made a

name for itself in North Idaho as the go-to for top-quality resale

apparel. Fresh inventory is consistently hitting the floor every day,

including locally crafted jewelry, ensuring you’ll find stylish new items

each time you visit.

At Beau Monde, they offer quality name-brand clothing for a fraction

of the price of retail, while employing 35 wonderful staff members

between Beau Monde’s four store locations—Beau Monde Exchange in

Hayden, Beau Monde Luxe and Beau Monde Outlet in Coeur d’Alene,

and Beau Monde Outlet in Post Falls. A fifth location is scheduled to

open in the coming months in Athol! Carrying any brand under the

sun, from Free People to Louis Vuitton and Gucci, they have four stores

that cater to all budgets. Those bringing in items will receive cash or instore

credit on the spot for clothing, shoes and accessories.

“We keep clothing in circulation and out of landfills, while saving you

money on your clothing budgets for the entire family,” says Brooke,

founder and owner, who was inspired to get into this business due to

her entrepreneurial spirit. “I really wanted to bring this type of store to

my hometown because there was nothing at the time that offered this

type of service. And I wanted to be able to secure a financially stable

future for my family. Growing up, we really didn’t have a lot, though we

had love—which was most important.”

Brooke has called North Idaho home since she was just 3 years old.

Her family “lived off the land” on 40 acres in Priest River while she was

growing up. She lived in Sandpoint for a decade, followed by Post Falls.

After graduating from Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington,

with her BA in behavioral science, she came back home to Coeur

d’Alene.“It’s like a dream being able to live in beautiful North Idaho,

and the community is so supportive! I constantly run into people who

know me and say, ‘Aren’t you the Beau Monde lady?’” Brooke laughs. “I

love being able to save people money so that they can spend more on

experiences instead of material things. Creating memories with loved

ones is so important.”

Brooke is grateful for the many blessings she has experienced as a result

of her business, as Beau Monde afforded Brooke and her family the

financial ability to adopt her son from the Dominican Republic of the

Congo. Today, she has five children—three biological and two adopted.

“I am so thankful for all of the community support throughout the last

20 years and during some pretty tough times,” Brooke says gratefully.

“In 2005, the mall on Fourth and Best we were located in burned to

the ground, and we had to start completely over with nothing. Also,

in 2007, when my husband Dave had a terrible accident while playing

soccer, (21 skull fractures, 12-day coma, brain bleeding, had to learn

to walk and talk again, etc.), family, friends and businesses in our

community all provided support and resources to help in numerous

ways, and for that I am forever thankful. I experienced firsthand how

important it is to step up and help others whenever you are able to.”

Brooke is proud to own a business in the North Idaho communities she loves and

attributes her success to her supportive husband and family, as well as her loyal

customers, who have shopped and sold to her for the past two decades. And it is

important for her to give back. Brooke and her team have donated more than $120,000

to local charities through their $10 Bag Sale for Charity events. Customers can choose

to donate items, and once the capacity for items is met, Brooke rents a gym and a

U-Haul, and volunteers unite to help organize the sale. For just $10, shoppers can

choose from an abundance of clothing items, shoes and accessories to fill one full-size

kitchen garbage bag of clothing—with all proceeds going to charity. And … there’s no

limit to how many bags you can purchase.

As summer is in full swing, and fall is just around the corner, stop in at one of Beau

Monde’s four store locations and shop the latest styles to complement your fashion

sense—and your budget.

SCHOOL YEAR

APPROACHES

Teachers, students, parents anxious for ‘normal’ year

BY COLIN ANDERSON

As life continues to return to normal, local school kids are hoping the

same will hold true for the upcoming school year. While teachers all

across the country did their best to keep their students not just on

track academically, but socially, it is simply not possible to replicate

the in-person school experience from afar. While some students did well with the

responsibility of remote learning, others struggled to stay on task.

Parents, especially those with young children, are also eager to see a return to a

more normal school year. Balancing work, often from home, with staying up to

date on their child’s learning and finding time to take care of the other important

aspects and daily tasks of life, was overwhelming at times. The school day provides

a sense of routine in which both students and their parents can appreciate, and was

something that might have been taken for granted previously.

As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, we take a moment to reflect and say

thank you to the educators and administrators who worked tirelessly to adapt to

ever-changing direction and protocol from local, state and federal officials. We

heard from numerous teachers about their students’ resilience in the face of such

adversity, and how they are coming out of the experience not just as adaptable

learners but more compassionate toward each other, and more confident having

undergone such a chaotic school year.

Very soon the sound of whistles blowing, helmets smacking and soccer balls being

struck will again fill the after-school air as high school sports return. The ring of the

bell and the ensuing commotion as younger children scramble outside of school,

looking for their bus ride home or their parent’s minivan, there to meet them at

the end of a full day. Even the sound of music, as bands and choirs reassemble in

preparation of filling their school auditoriums with beautiful music in front of a

packed house.

As much of life has returned to pre-pandemic normal, school districts are still

subject to more restrictions than most settings. Administrators are finalizing

plans as they make final preparations to welcome students back full time, and if

there was ever a year to keep up to date on the latest information, it is this one.

Immunization, class size, cleaning procedures, masking and social distancing vary

greatly from district to district, and even from elementary to high school. Visit

your district’s website frequently so both you and your child are best prepared for

what is to come this school year.

As summer closes, kids can look forward to being in a classroom, instead of in

front of a screen. High fives and hugs can replace fist bumps and air slaps, and an

upcoming school year that will hopefully resemble something we can call normal.

Serving the Community and Its Protectors

The Coeur d’Alene Police Foundation seeks to bring better health, wellness and support

to both law enforcement and community members

BY TAYLOR SHILLAM

In a mission to serve the community and those who protect it, the

Coeur d’Alene Police Foundation was formed in October 2019 by

a group of officers at the local department who recognized unmet

needs in their first responder community.

These needs were in the realm of health and well-being; specifically, a

lack of available resources and connections to professionals who could

help them process trauma and prioritize their wellness. The officers

recognized a need to coordinate and expand upon the department’s

existing community children’s outreach programs.

From there, the Coeur d’Alene Police Foundation was born, with the

mission of supporting the community along with the lives and well-being

of first responders in the Coeur d’Alene area.

“Repeated exposure to traumatic events and the daily grind of dealing with

difficult people and situations can really take a toll on first responders,”

shared Foundation Member at Large Heather Schmitz. Additional

factors, including the common schedule-related sleep deficits, the recent

climate surrounding law enforcement, and the COVID-19 pandemic,

have also had a significant impact.

That impact has revealed itself in potentially dangerous ways, as higher

rates of depression and suicide, higher rates of many forms of physical

illness, earlier deaths, and higher divorce rates, among many other

hardships, are commonly experienced by members of law enforcement.

“There is an unmet need nationally to provide additional support to

counteract the negative impacts of these jobs. As such, we want to do

what we can to help in our area,” said Schmitz.

With a strong emphasis on confidentiality, the foundation provides

referrals, support and funding for officers to pursue treatment from

local health and wellness providers. The foundation also acts as a free

resource, compiling a growing list of reputable online and phone-based

professional resources listed on their website. “Moving forward, we are

looking to expand to offer a more comprehensive wellness program

that can be utilized by our department and possibly other agencies,”

Schmitz shared.

In addition to being a resource for officer wellness, a major component

of the foundation’s community-focused efforts is through their children’s

programs. Their primary children’s programs include the Holidays and

Heroes event and their annual Holiday Toy Drive for local hospitals.

“The Holidays and Heroes event is a coordinated effort between local

agencies and civic organizations,” Schmitz explained. “Area first

responders, including officers from our department, are paired with less

fortunate children in our community for a morning of shopping and fun.”

Throughout the event, officers help each child select holiday gifts and

basic necessities for themselves and their families. The children are then

treated to lunch and a visit with Santa Claus. Later, officers deliver the

handpicked gifts, along with a donated holiday meal, to each family.

“Our foundation provides volunteers to help wrap the gifts, and we also

coordinate our department’s fundraising for this special event,” Schmitz

said. “In addition to helping ease the financial burden that the holiday

season presents, we also cherish the opportunity to connect with these

children and their families in a positive and meaningful way.”

That positive impact is extended through the foundation’s hospital toy

drive, which was started in 2015 by a department member who had spent

the holiday season with his infant at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital. His

experience brought a familiar feeling to others within the department.

“We saw a need to bring a bit of light to these children and their families

with toys, smiles and well wishes,” Schmitz explained. “A number of

families in our department have spent a significant amount of time at

both Sacred Heart and Kootenai Children’s Hospitals, so his vision was

quickly adopted and shared by the department.”

To make the toy drive a reality, department officers and volunteers

donated time to solicit toy donations from community members across

multiple weekends during the holiday season. Volunteers would also

gather monetary donations from individuals and local businesses, used

to purchase additional toys and items for the children and their families.

“To date, with an amazing amount of help from our community,

we have donated an estimated $94,000 in toys to Sacred Heart and

Kootenai Children’s Hospitals,” Schmitz shared. “We absolutely love the

opportunity this event provides to connect with so many members of our

community and the small impact we are able to create for each of these

special kids.”

Along with the impact of its large-scale events and programs, the

impact of the Coeur d’Alene foundation reaches close, personal levels

through special requests inspired by interactions between officers and

community members.

One example from earlier this year saw the foundation purchase clothing

and necessities for a teenage girl who was removed from her family

setting and placed into foster care. The officer involved in the process

noticed the teen had very few personal belongings,

and asked the foundation to step in.

“We jumped on the opportunity and promptly

delivered clothing and necessities to help ease her

transition,” Schmitz said. That’s just one example

of the many stories and moments delivered by the

foundation that affirms the importance of their

organization on a daily basis.

The Coeur d’Alene Police Foundation receives its

support and funding from donations provided by

department officers, local businesses and individual

community members. Its major fundraising event

is the K27 Memorial Spring Fundraiser. Set to be

an annual event, the fundraiser kicked off this year

on May 2.

Although it wasn’t yet the complete event they had

envisioned, the fundraiser was a success.

“We had planned a community event and fun run

for May 2, but decided to postpone that event for

one year due to uncertainties around restrictions

for community gatherings,” Schmitz explained.

“We instead held a raffle to help support our first

responder programs for this year.”

The raffle’s success gave the foundation all the

more hope for continuing to gather support in the

future. “We can’t wait for the opportunity to hold

the bigger community event,” Schmitz shared.

“It will serve as both a fundraiser and as a way

to join together as a community to honor and

commemorate Sergeant Greg Moore, who we lost

in the line of duty on May 5, 2015.”

Community members in the Coeur d’Alene area

and beyond have many opportunities to contribute.

Monetary donations to the foundation’s specific

programs or to its general fund can be made online

at CdAPDFoundation.org, or sent by mail to 3818

North Schreiber Way, Coeur d’Alene, ID 83815.

Additional ways to contribute to the foundation’s

efforts throughout the year include purchasing

toys during their annual toy drive, or signing up to

volunteer at next year’s K27 Memorial Fun Run, set

to take place once again in early May.

The foundation is looking to grow the list of

recommended providers and wellness professionals

provided on their website, specifically providers

with first responder experience. Recommendations

for such resources can be submitted through

their website.

Seeking support through funding has been

one of the most difficult hurdles faced by the

Coeur d’Alene Police Foundation in delivering

their mission.

“Our area is home to many generous citizens and

also an extraordinary number of nonprofits who

are striving to make our community a better place.

We are all doing good things, but we are also all

competing for donations,” Schmitz explained.

“This is a good thing, and we are unhampered by

the challenge, but it is a factor.”

She notes the generous local community as a

positive challenge. “Our community is quite

supportive, and we very much appreciate that fact,”

she added, especially appreciative of the support in

the midst of a challenging climate surrounding law

enforcement over the past year.

They look forward to continuing to provide

support and hope to the local community, while

strengthening the bond it shares with the Coeur

d’Alene Police Department.

CONTRIBUTING TO SOCIETY AND HELPING OTHERS

NIC STUDENTS MAKE IMPROVEMENTS TO ROSE GARDEN; ADD LITTLE FREE LIBRARY

AND LIGHTS ON VOLLEYBALL COURT

By Maureen Dolan, North Idaho College

North Idaho College students love their community, and it shows.

Each year, students across campus are involved in various service projects

that help make NIC’s main campus in Coeur d’Alene a special place for

students, employees and members of the North Idaho communities

NIC serves.

Thanks to students’ efforts during the 2020-21 academic year, the NIC

rose garden is even more beautiful; the volleyball court at the NIC beach

is lit up at night; and there is a little free library outside the NIC Writing

Center for anyone who wants to take or leave a book.

Hannah Neff, a 2021 NIC grad, helped lead the effort to bring new life

to the rose garden. Neff was a senator in ASNIC (Associated Students of

North Idaho College), NIC’s student government organization.

“We did a survey early in the year that asked students what changes they

would like to see on campus, and there were several requests for more

outdoor study space, especially with COVID,” Neff said. “My fellow

senator Jameson Wasson had picked up the rose garden project, so I

decided to partner with him to help make sure that project was able to

be completed this year.”

The campus rose garden, located behind Seiter Hall on the southwest

end of the NIC campus, was created in 2007 in honor of the Coeur

d’Alene Tribe. Near Rosenberry Drive and the college’s riverfront, the

rose garden’s benches are the perfect place to sit and contemplate the NIC

campus’ rich history and its connection to the Tribe.

Another campus enhancement, a little free library, was created and

installed by the NIC English Club. It can be found outside the Writing

Center behind Lee-Kildow Hall.

Little free libraries are public book exchanges featuring outdoor, enclosed

book-sharing boxes with shelves. Anyone can stop by to take or donate

a good read.

“My hope is that students and community members engage with our

little free library as a resource for literature and as a connection between

people through a shared appreciation of literature,” said club member

Jaye Hanselmann-Cox. “I believe that keeping the book exchange flowing

will help link the campus and the community in a meaningful way.”

Another NIC student, Jestine Lackner, spearheaded a project to bring

outdoor lights to the volleyball court on the NIC beach. Lackner said she

decided to take action after witnessing fellow students struggle to play

volleyball during the evening hours, often getting hit in the face with

a ball.

Lackner’s project came to fruition, and she was able to watch as NIC

facilities crew members installed large LED lights that light up the beach

court for evening play.

Those are just a few of many service projects NIC students have

completed over the years. Community-based projects are encouraged

and supported at NIC because they expose students to the importance of

contributing to society and helping others.

INJURY PREVENTION

By Molly Radonich, LAT, ATC

Let’s keep sports and activities fun

and injury free!

The fastest growing sport in America … What’s your guess? If

you said pickleball, you would be correct! According to The

Economist, pickleball participation grew by 21.3 percent from

2019, while the average activity level remained constant.

Pickleball was invented just next door in Bainbridge Island, Washington.

It is a combination of tennis, wiffleball and badminton. It was made

official in 1972, and there are now over 4 million pickleball athletes. You

can play singles or doubles, and there are 11 points in a game, but you

must win by 2.

Pickleball athletes move through multiple planes of movement to

successfully compete in this game. This requires successful movement

patterns that require mobility, motor control and sports-specific

movements. Both the upper and lower body are highly involved in this

sport and require many muscle groups.

There are growing numbers of new patients who suffer injuries from this

popular and growing sport. There are several different injuries which result

from this loved sport. The most common are sprains, Achilles’ tendonitis;

shoulder, neck, back pain; muscle strains of the quads and hamstrings, as

well as wrist; pain and fractures. Depending on the injury, it could take a

few weeks to heal, and others may take much longer. There are several ways

to prevent injuries like these and others. Prevention may take a bit of extra

effort but will be worth it in the long run.

A proper warmup is key to help prevent injuries. If muscles don’t get

sufficient blood flow before beginning activities with quick movements,

HEALTHY TIP

ADD SOME ZEST TO YOUR WATER!

As you continue to focus on keeping your body hydrated and cool this

summer, you may be finding yourself getting a bit bored of that plain old

glass of water. For starters, you can squeeze a fresh lemon or lime into

your water. You can also add sliced cucumber or even watermelon and

strawberries. Plus, these items are high in water content too!

your risk for a muscle strain greatly increases.

Warming up helps to lubricate the joints, increase

elasticity of your muscles and prepare your heart

rate and blood pressure for activity.

Wearing the right footwear will help to prevent

injuries like plantar fasciitis and ankle sprains.

The right footwear consists of a shoe with proper

arch supports, good grip on the bottom for lateral

movements, and ankle support to prevent ankle

sprains. There are specific court shoes you can

purchase, but a good pair of tennis shoes with all of

the above criteria should help keep your feet happy

and healthy.

Pickleball involves many different movement

patterns and requires the ability to perform quick

changes of speed and direction. It also involves lots

of upper-body and lower-body movements at the

same time. Cross training can be very beneficial

in training your muscles to be able to stand up to

the challenges of pickleball. To prevent injury, it is

beneficial to do strength training or body weight

exercises involving different planes of movement.

Agility drills are also a great way to cross train.

Biking, swimming or running can be helpful

cardiovascular exercises to improve your stamina

on the court.

There are many ways to prevent injuries from

happening in the first place. Stretching helps to

relieve tight muscles and prevent injury from lack of

flexibility. Stretching can also help to relieve soreness

from a hard workout. Preventative measures such

as a Functional Movement Screen works to find

potential problems and provide solutions before

they become an issue.

EATING FOR BETTER SKIN

The miracle treatment for wrinkles

BY JENNIFER MILLER OF THE WELLNESS BAR

What if I told you that you could

literally eat or drink your way to

longer hair, younger looking skin and

stronger nails? It sounds too good to be true, I

know. Meet your new best friend—collagen.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the

human body. It is a major component of your

skin and connective tissues. There are 16 types

of collagen produced in the body. When we

are born, our collagen levels increase yearly.

That is until we turn 20. After age 20, we lose

1 percent of our collagen production each year.

In addition, exposure to the sun, pollution,

along with poor health choices, can boost the

decrease of collagen production tenfold. This

loss of collagen can cause depletion of firmness

and elasticity in your skin, brittleness in nails

and thinning of the hair. So, how can eating or

drinking a collagen supplement or foods rich in

collagen help combat this?

According to Healthline, “In one study, a woman

who took a supplement containing 2.5 to 5 grams

of collagen for eight weeks experienced less

dryness and significant increase in skin elasticity

compared to those who didn’t take it.” Upping

your collagen intake stimulates your body to

produce more collagen on its own, thus helping

repair the broken-down tissues in your body. In

regard to your skin, it specifically helps repair

your dermis level. The dermis is the thickest

layer of skin and contains the most connective

tissue. This layer is responsible for keeping your

skin firm and supple. The more collagen that

reaches your dermis layer, the healthier (and

younger) your skin will look.

Increase in collagen production can also speed

up the healing process by promoting healthy

tissue development. A slightly more invasive way

of promoting collagen production in your skin

is microdermabrasion. A licensed esthetician

or dermatologist will use a tool to cause

micro injuries to your skin which stimulates

collagen production. This treatment can help

minimize scarring from acne, dark spots from

hyperpigmentation, and helps reduce the

appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Collagen isn’t just beneficial to your skin. Adding

more collagen to your diet can help strengthen

brittle nails and may also help stimulate hair

growth. There are some studies that say that

collagen supplements can even reduce the

appearance of grey hairs by supporting the

structure of the hair follicles. Aside from a more

youthful appearance, collagen can also help

strengthen your bones and relieve joint pain.

So, how can you incorporate more collagen into

your daily routine? It’s easier than you think.

There are plenty of supplements on the market.

A personal favorite is Vital Proteins Collagen

Peptides. It’s tasteless and odorless, and easily

dissolvable in your morning coffee, smoothie

or juice. You can also add it into your diet by

adding in fresh spinach, beets, fresh caught fish

or homemade bone broth. Collagen appears to

be safe for most people and can be made several

different ways to accommodate allergies and

dietary needs.

Botox®

THE MIRACLE TREATMENT FOR WRINKLES

By Bri Williams, RN, BSN

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 2 million

Botox® treatments were carried out in 2019, and that number

has continued to rise. Considered the most common cosmetic

intervention, and with good reason, this miracle treatment can take years

off your appearance and prevent the signs of aging in a quick (we’re talking

five-minute) appointment. With FDA approval to treat moderate to severe

wrinkles in the frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines, and a 92 percent

“worth it” rating from consumers, this treatment may be just what you are

looking for to age gracefully and look as young as you feel. Below we break

down your most common questions.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a safe, purified, FDA-approved protein that relaxes and softens

the muscles responsible for causing frown lines, creases between the brows,

around the eyes (crow’s feet), and worry lines in the forehead. Years of

muscle use in our faces—from smiling, squinting, stressing—create what

begin as fine lines, and deepen over time. Botox® can heal that dermal

cracking or can be used preventatively to help deter their deepening.

How much does Botox® cost?

Botox® pricing varies from clinic and region, and your total price depends

on what areas you are treating and the number of units each individual

needs. To treat the area in between the eyebrows (a.k.a. frown lines) is

typically $240 to $300; the forehead is typically $150 to $180; and crow’s

feet are typically $300 to $450. It is best to schedule a consultation with

your aesthetic provider to determine the appropriate dosing and cost for

your individualized treatment.

How long does Botox® last?

You can expect to notice a more youthful, relaxed appearance within two

to 14 days, and results last three to four months. Some clients find that with

consistent treatments they get longer-lasting results.

How long will my appointment take?

Botox® appointments are quick and easy. Your initial appointment will take

approximately 30 minutes to review medical forms, discuss your goals with

your provider, and develop a treatment plan. After your first visit, your

subsequent visits are generally quick and take only a few minutes.

Does Botox® hurt?

Most patients describe Botox as painless. A very tiny needle is used to inject

Botox® in strategic muscles on the face, and techniques are used to make

the treatment comfortable. If you are concerned about pain or discomfort,

talk to your provider prior to treatment to discuss pain relieving modalities

such as topical numbing cream and/or ice.

Is there any downtime or recovery?

Botox® is generally considered a “no social downtime” treatment. Most

patients leave their appointment with small pink bumps where Botox was

injected, and these generally subside in 15 minutes. Bruising is a possibility.

Patients are asked to avoid vigorous exercise and facial massage for 24

hours after treatment.

When should I start Botox®?

There is not a set age when one should start Botox®. Once you notice static

lines (the lines that appear on the face at rest), you can begin to speak to

your aesthetic provider about treatment to soften the lines and prevent

them from getting worse. When treatment is started early, the static lines

can often be reversed. After they have been present for years, they can be

more difficult to diminish.

Botox® is an excellent treatment option for individuals wanting to prevent

or reverse the signs of aging. Talk with your aesthetic provider to see if

Botox® is right for you.

TALK TO YOUR KIDS

Suicide rates rise due to coronavirus pandemic

BY MARC STEWART, HERITAGE HEALTH

A 12-year-old girl tried to kill herself with Advil.

The small overdose landed her in the emergency

room at Kootenai Health, and she ended up

being okay. Clearly, this was a cry for help.

“It was a suicide gesture, and we take those very

seriously,” said Dr. Nicole Odom, a pediatrician

with Heritage Health. “We developed a safety

plan for her. What’s scary for me is that she won’t

talk about why she did it. Obviously, something

happened, we just don’t know what it was yet.”

Unraveling the motives behind what happened

will take weeks, if not months, of counseling

and therapy.

The COVID-19 pandemic is having mental

health consequences for teenagers and pre-teens

that are just now being understood. According to

the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention,

emergency room visits for suicide attempts by

teenagers, especially girls, went up dramatically

during pandemic lockdowns.

“The pandemic caused major social disruptions

in the teenagers’ lives,” said Odom. “It caused

significant mood changes, and we wouldn’t

expect those to be resolved overnight.”

The CDC study found that suspected suicide

attempts in the 12-to-17 age group declined

in the early days of social distancing, but then

rose among both girls and boys in the summer

of 2020. In the subsequent winter, suspected

attempts by female teens surged to 51 percent

higher than the equivalent period of 2019.

How can parents tell the difference between

normal teen irritability and moodiness and

depression and anxiety?

“It’s hard to tell what normal teenage angst is,”

said Odom. “But if you see sustained low moods,

isolation and withdrawal from friends and a lack

of interest in activities they normally enjoyed, it’s

time to take notice and take action.”

Other signs include doing poorly in school,

writing goodbye notes or giving their possessions

away.

“You shouldn’t blow off your teenager being

chronically unhappy,” said Odom. “If there are

shifts in their sleep patterns or they’re not talking

to their family, it’s probably a good idea to have

them talk to a counselor.”

Odom said parents and grandparents should not

be shy about asking teenagers direct questions,

such as, “Are you thinking about killing

yourself?”

“Give them space to talk and ask open-ended

questions so they can’t just grunt,” said Odom.

“Don’t offer solutions. Give them space to talk

and let them spill everything. The bottom line

is really having a relationship with your child so

that they can talk to you.”

ANSWERING THE CALL TO SAVE

OUR WATERWAYS

SMALL ACTIONS EFFECT CHANGE IN OUR

GREATER WORLD

BY RACHEL KELLY

There are some things that we can’t do alone. There

are some things that we were made to face together,

as a community, as a state, or as a people. Things like

raising our families, or building safe neighborhoods,

we face together. There are some problems that require a whole

world to come together to ensure success. Large problems

usually involve a lot of people, and it takes a lot of people to

solve them. Problems like global pollution and global warming

are big problems. Problems that we can’t solve on our own. But

together, united by our common humanity, we can.

Here in North Idaho, we may not be able to see the ocean, but

we can most certainly appreciate it, its beauty and purpose.

Many of us make the time to travel west to take in the salty

ocean air and sandy beaches while being reminded of how

expansive, and important, our oceans are.

“It’s important to think about the way we live and its impact

on the planet,” says Tara Galuska of the Washington Fish

and Wildlife. And there are many such impacts. We can

see those impacts on the beaches and especially in our

waterways. We can see the impacts we have on rivers

through the salmon and the residents they support, such as

bears. Another such resident is the Southern Orca, resident

of the Puget Sound and Canada, which survives off of

Chinook salmon. Salmon, in turn, survives off of krill. Krill

survives off phytoplankton. There is currently estimated

to be only 75 Southern Orca left in the whole swath of salt

water that exists from the Washington Sound up to the Strait

of San Juan de Fuca. Their low numbers, coupled with their

dependence on the health of the local waters, makes them an

endangered species.

The declining numbers of Southern Orca illustrates the

circular pattern of the effects of our actions on the world,

beginning with the global rise in temperatures. Scientists

believe this is due to an increase in atmospheric carbon

dioxide. There is still a lot of research being done on exactly

why this is happening, but it is apparent that our world is

changing. This change is affecting our local residents, animals

and humans alike. According to the Southern Resident Orca

Task Force, the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has stayed

below 300 parts per million prior to 1950. Since then, our

carbon dioxide has increased to 405 parts per million. This has

caused a one-degree Celsius increase in global temperatures

since pre-industrial levels, suggesting that industrialization

and pollution plays a part in the health of our Earth.

Twenty-five percent of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

is absorbed by the ocean, causing an increase in ocean

acidification. Algae, often seen in freshwater ponds, lakes and

basins across Washington and Idaho, grows plentiful in order

60

| COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL


COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL | 61


to consume the carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. The

ocean’s acidification makes an inhospitable environment

to most species aside from algae, which adapts to grow

in the ocean. Like a fail safe for an imbalance in the

atmosphere, algae grow wild, fed by an overproduction

of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is often present due

to various levels of pollution, from untreated sewage

to various inhospitable factories. Unfortunately, large

amounts of algae are toxic to all fresh and saltwater

species.

The one-degree Celsius rise in global temperatures also

affects our streams and lakes, as snow melt decreases

every year. The re-circulated warm water makes for

warmer winter lakes and rivers, and dryer summer

river beds. Occasionally, a rise in warm winter waters

causes an overabundance of rain versus snow, increasing

sediment flow and mudslides. The increased rain also

runs into our drains, occasionally overwhelming our

water treatment plants. Which means that sewage

dumps into our ocean. More algae grows.

According to scientifically backed collected data of

Washington Fish and Wildlife, major effects from

climate change will be seen as soon as 2030. If conditions

continue as they have been, 2030 through 2052 will see

a 1.5-degree Celsius increase, which will result in the

following conditions: a 67 percent increase in days over

90 degrees, 38 percent decrease in snowpack, 16 percent

increase in winter streamflow, and a 23 percent decrease

in summer streamflow. To lower these temperatures, and

to decrease their overall effects, we must cut our carbon

emissions by 45 percent by 2030.

Our changing rivers affect salmon, who spawn in rivers

in the spring. They lay their eggs in the gravel, from which

alevins emerge one to three months after spawning. Fry

then grow from alevins, then develop into smolt. Smolt

then migrate to the ocean, where they grow into adults

and live for up to four years. All the combined effects

of pollution and carbon dioxide disturb the breeding

grounds of our salmon at all their various developmental

levels. Increased flooding impacts the salmon eggs and

alevins. Reduced spring flows affect the fry and smolt.

The increased algae in our oceans kill the zooplankton

on which the herring and other fish feed, in turn on

which the salmon feed. Salmon is considered a keystone

species, meaning that they are essential for the survival

of a variety of wildlife. As their rate of survival drops, the

underlying food web becomes unstable. This is why the

Orca are showing up less and less in Pacific Northwest

waters, and why the health of our fresh water suffers.

When salmon suffer, we all suffer. And so, our actions

come full circle.

Our seemingly small actions that we, as a people, do

on the daily affect the greater world. Trash from our

picnics on the beach, the chemicals that we use in our

cleaners, the medications that we dispose of, waste water,

improper drainage and everyday food waste all play a

part in pollution. Individually, our actions are small. But

together, they have a big impact. Everything eventually

ends up in our waterways, and in turn runs into the

oceans. Our Earth is a complicated web of interconnected

pieces, of which we are also a part of.

“What we do as an individual and as a society to reduce

global warming and to improve water quality for these

majestic creatures also supports a better ecosystem for

humans,” says Tara. This means that any movement

toward change is a win-win.

The Orca are especially sensitive to any environmental

changes, as are all endangered species, which is why their

numbers have been in steady decline in our waterways.

Individuals on land and water play a large part in our

Earth’s health, but so do large companies whose ships

produce a lot of emissions. Noting the sensitivity that

Orca and other wildlife have toward our actions in the

water, TOTE Maritime is one company that has decided

to do something about it.

Alaskan fishermen have long begun their spring season

in the southern part of Washington’s Puget Sound, and

still leave every year to fish for the summer season. As

the polar ice melts, and less and less re-freezes every

winter, fishermen and shipping companies are able to

go further and further north. Many ships and fishermen

are advised to be whale wise as they expand their reach

into the northern waters. Ships are advised to keep their

distance from whales, and to steer away from fishing in

their feeding waters. There are even flags that local ships

hoist to alert other ships and boats as to the presence of

whales. In 2010, the coastal waters of North America

were deemed emission control areas. Most companies

simply adhere to the bare minimum, adhering to the

emission controls and occasionally following Whale

Wise protocol.

TOTE Maritime Alaska is one such company that

moves up and down the northern seas. The leader in

the industry in environmental practices, they chose

to respond to the emission controls in a way that went

above the bar for the safety of our coastal species. TOTE

Maritime Alaska invested in liquified natural gas. In

partnership with Puget Sound Energy, which is known

for their groundbreaking and accessible environmental

activism, TOTE Maritime Alaska outfitted its Orca class

vessels to run on liquified natural gas. Liquified natural

gas decreases particulate matter by 99 percent, vessel

sulfur emissions by 98 percent, and nitrogen oxides by

91 percent. These numbers are groundbreaking. Through

decreasing the waste that ships normally dump into the

waters, TOTE Maritime Alaska has made some of the

64

| COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL


most environmentally friendly ships in the

world, showing the world once again just how

unique the Pacific Northwest is.

It is actions such as these that greatly affect our

waters and the sensitive wildlife that live in it.

Large companies, such as shipping and fishing

companies, play a direct part in keeping our

waterways clean by the ways that they choose

to conduct business. TOTE Maritime Alaska

is especially inspirational in their refusal to

go along with the status quo, and the hope is

that other companies will follow suit. In the

face of such incredible effort, we must do the

same. We must allow ourselves the flexibility

of positive change. Maybe not all at once, but

perhaps little by little. Even the smallest steps

can have a big impact. Especially when they

inspire others to make steps as well. Little by

little, greater change happens. There’s no better

example of what a community can do when it

comes together than what we see here, in the

Pacific Northwest.

We can and do reduce the waste that goes in our

waterways, by participating in the reduction of

litter or washing our cars in professional car

washes (that have proper disposal techniques).

We can also conserve the water that we use,

treating it as the precious resource that it is. We

can reduce our carbon footprint by reducing

our car use, from riding bikes to riding public

transport. We can implement the wise use of

our resources, reducing food waste by planning

ahead and composting. Using products with

fewer chemicals not only betters our overall

health but benefits the health of our world.

The leader in

the industry in

environmental

practices, they chose

to respond to the

emission controls in

a way that went above

the bar for the safety

of our coastal species.

Individually we are small people, with a small

impact. We live as people of character by our

individual everyday decisions. Together we live

as part of a delicate web called “community,”

where each impacts the other. As such, our

daily decisions of character make small dents in

what our world looks like as a whole. Perhaps

in our own small way we will inspire others

to go upstream against apathy. It is in these

seemingly small everyday acts that we make big

changes, first changing ourselves until we have

all changed together.

Global impact comes full circle, into our

backyards. Into the realm of personal

responsibility. As much as we want to pretend

that global problems are beyond our reach,

it’s the quality of our local watershed and the

health of our resident species that speak to just

how much we are doing to preserve its health.

When it comes to saving our waterways, we

must answer the call to responsible living. Just

like TOTE Maritime Alaska is doing. Just like

the Southern Resident Orca Task Force. Just

like us, who choose to not go it alone.

It is in this fearless spirit of innovation

that we discover that the world is capable

of change.

TOP FASHION PIECES FOR THE TRANSITION

TO A NEW SEASON

By Taylor Shillam


iving in a region with all four of the seasons inspires the need for strategic seasonal

shopping. As the heat of the Pacific Northwest summer begins to fade into shorter, cooler

days, key transitional pieces will become wardrobe essentials.

Light pieces that carry well into fall’s early days are a great way to extend your summer

wardrobe while staying seasonally chic. This month, shop your local boutiques for

summery items with staying power. Here, you’ll find shopping inspiration through a

selection of items to look for as you shop the Northwest’s seasonal styles.

Sweater vests. One of the season’s easiest ways to add a layer is the sweater vest! You’ll

notice sweater vests and sleeveless knits back in style as we come closer to fall. They’re

perfect as easy pieces to wear on their own as a sleeveless sweater, or to layer over a crisp

white button-down as the temperatures drop.

White button-down shirts. If you don’t have that crisp white button-down in your

wardrobe yet, now is the time to add one, as it’s sure to be a staple in the coming months.

Light enough to wear on its own or to layer under a cardigan, jacket, sweater vest or suit

jacket, the crisp white shirt is one of the most versatile pieces you’ll pick up this season.

While temperatures stay hot, mix and match the top with your favorite shorts and skirts

to stay cool.

Crop tops. Don’t put away your summer crop tops just yet! These hot-weather staples can

keep you stylish in the transition to autumn. Keep them to spice up a night out, as they are

easily covered under a jacket in the cooler evening temperatures, or keep them peeking

through light layers for a fun weekend look. Bonus style points for crop tops in fun fabrics

and leathers.

Neutral maxis. Maxi dresses made their comeback this year, and they are here to stay

through the autumn. Keep your neutral-toned maxi dresses for the fall—think creamcolored

shirt dresses paired with knee-high boots, or military-inspired greens with ankle

boots. Maxi dresses are an easy way to add a feminine touch to your autumn days.

Jumpsuits. Similar to the maxi dresses, jumpsuits are an easy way to quickly pull together

La chic outfit. An excellent combination of fashionable and functional, jumpsuits carry

COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL | 69


well into fall festivities. From satin jumpsuits to dress up a night out,

to military-style jumpsuits making a statement in the daytime, you can

easily layer them over a long-sleeve shirt or underneath a wool coat on

a cooler day.

White baby tees. That little white tee in your closet might be of bigger

value than you realize. Cropped tops have been in style all year, and that

doesn’t stop at T-shirts. Keep your fitted white “baby tee” as the ultimate

base layer, then build an outfit around it based on your plans. White

tees are easily paired with just about everything: this season’s carpenter

pants, trousers, destroyed jeans and maxi skirts, with additional warmth

brought by cardigans, denim, leather, or suit jackets.

Cropped sweatshirts. Those cropped sweaters you kept around for the

late nights coming home from the beach, lingering around a bonfire, or

the occasional rainy day, are going to be one of the best pieces to keep

around for autumn. Cropped sweatshirts can range from a simple, solid

color, to a retro-inspired statement piece. Get creative with your layers,

and keep them in stock as a go-to piece this season.

Slouchy jeans. The comfort promised by “boyfriend” jeans and “mom”

jeans alike has been deservedly embraced. These flattering, yet flexible,

jeans are on the slouchier side, making them easy for the transition not

only between seasons, but between day to night and work to weekend.

As they fit well with just about any selection of shoe, they’re easily taken

from sandal weather into boot weather.

Floral prints. Flowers will continue to color and brighten our wardrobes

well into the upcoming months. Keep your light, summery florals to

add a burst of romantic energy to your fall outfits. You’ll see florals stay

on boutique shelves in the form of patterned mini dresses, accessories,

printed suits and more.

Extra-strappy sandals. Keep your most fun, dramatic sandals in the

rotation this month, as they’re poised to become a fall evening essential.

Dressier sandals with far-reaching straps are set to take you into autumn

soirees, events and dinner parties.

Where to Shop

Inland Northwest shoppers have a wide selection of local boutiques

to choose from, all across North Idaho. Tiffany Blue is a top shopping

destination. With three locations in downtown Coeur d’Alene, Coeur

d’Alene’s Riverstone and Hayden, Idaho, Tiffany Blue Boutique is a goto

With the busyness of our everyday lives, and

the many activities and adventures we’re

enjoying during the warmer months,

the last thing we want to worry about is

putting on our makeup. How nice would it be to wash your

face in the morning, moisturize, put on a little lip gloss and

head out the door, ready to embark on your day?

There’s no better time than the present to embrace your

natural beauty. Rather than covering up your face with

multiple products, spending too much time contouring

and enhancing, treat your skin to a health and beauty

regimen to keep it glowing and looking great, without the

need to cover it up.

With the help of one of our beauty experts, who has years

in the aesthetics field, we have compiled some simple

ways you can keep your face looking fresh and natural

throughout the summer months and as you transition into

the fall. It’s simple! Get ready to make your daily facial

routine one that is easy and not time invasive. And you’ll

be ready to head out the door glowing! Take a read to help

bring your skin-care and beauty routine to the next level!

From what you put in your body to what you apply onto

it greatly affects your skin, its appearance and glow. And it

starts the moment you wake up. After a long night’s rest, it

is important to cleanse your face in order to remove excess

oil and create a clean canvas for what you put on your skin.

Be sure to pat dry with a clean, dry towel.

Now that you’re fresh faced, the most important must-have

product to apply is sunscreen. You can eliminate makeup—

the concealer, foundation and other products—by

choosing and applying a tinted sunscreen. “This provides

light coverage for a flawless and effortless look,” shares

Bri Williams, RN, BSN at Refined Aesthetics Med Spa in

Sandpoint, Idaho.

“You can use all the best products in a 10-step skin-care

regimen, but if you aren’t protecting your skin, it is all for

nothing,” she shares. “The number one thing you can do for

your skin is wear sunscreen. UV exposure is the number

one cause of premature aging and leads to skin cancer. It is

imperative that you protect your skin by applying SPF daily

and reapply throughout the day.”

She recommends finding a sunscreen that does double duty;

one that not only protects your skin from UV damage but

also packs in antioxidants to repair and rejuvenate the skin.

“My favorite is Total Defense and Repair by SkinMedica,

and it is available in tinted and non-tinted.”

Apply a light coat of waterproof mascara,

and a nude—or colored—lip gloss, and

you’ll be on your way.

You can touch up your look as needed

throughout the day by reapplying sunscreen

in one step with a powdered SPF. Bri recommends

Sunforgettable Broad Spectrum SPF 30 by ColorScience.

At the end of the day, no matter how exhausted you

might be, it is important that you wash your face before

bed. Doing this removes pollutants and dirt, and of

course any products you applied throughout the day.

“Your skin cells turnover during the night to regenerate,

and this process is impaired if your face is not clean,”

shares Bri. She adds that there are a number of

beneficial products that can be applied before bed

(from antioxidants, moisturizers and growth factors, to

retinol, pigment correctors and more), but at the very

least be sure to use an antioxidant to protect from the

environmental exposures that are heightened in the

summer and a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.

You should schedule two days per week when you plan

to exfoliate your skin with a natural scrub. Exfoliating

aids in a variety of areas, from minimizing pores and

fine lines, to preventing wrinkles, dark spots and

blemishes. Also opt to treat yourself once a week or

every other week to a natural face mask to maintain your

skin’s health.

Other factors that many seem to forget is one’s lifestyle.

It is imperative to drink plenty of water to keep your

body and skin hydrated. Getting enough sleep (yes, eight

hours is ideal) to allow your body the time to repair and

heal itself is also important. Exercise is a must, aiding

in releasing toxins of the body as you sweat. Eat foods

high in vitamins C, E and beta-carotene, which help to

nourish your skin.

When you feel good about yourself, and your body is

healthy inside, it tends to manifest outward—especially

through the appearance of your face and skin.

Obviously, you will not see results overnight. But, as you

continue to care for your skin, following a simple daily

routine that works best for you and your lifestyle, you’ll

soon find yourself with radiant skin, and you’ll have no

reason to want to cover it up.

Let your natural beauty shine, and embrace the face you

were born with.

Style Tips on a

Budget

LOOKING GLAM ON A PLAN

By Rachel Kelly

As we enjoy the last weeks of summer before the fall months arrive, here are six hard-to-beat tips for making your summer

wardrobe pop. And all on an unbeatable budget to boot.

1

Think Vintage.

You know those crazy thrift stores that are piled high with what some may

consider to be junk? Those places are the worst for looking for specific stuff,

but the best for finding something stylish. Thrift stores are where all the

vintage goodies are. Hidden under grandma’s matching tracksuits and the

moo moos are some original Star Wars custom tees, lace-up heeled boots,

retro skates and silk kimonos. The key is to keep your mind open. Don’t go

in for something specific—go in to discover. Don’t be afraid to jump into the

fray. You will come out with a pile of goodies for ten bucks.

I know, I know, sounds expensive, right? No, actually. Buy yourself something

cheap, just a simple tee for example. Then have it tailored. Most shirts, no

matter the company or expense, are made of pretty much the same materials.

The key is how they fit you. Simple tailor jobs cost $10 to $15, but the results

are one of a kind. Your tailored shirts, pants or dresses will automatically

become your favorite pieces, simply because they fit perfectly. Not only will

you look good, but you’ll feel comfortable. Comfort equates to confidence.

Simple tailoring is the way to go.

Buy Color.

3 4

Buying in solid colors is a well-kept style secret for the on-the-budget buyer.

Keeping it simple, in colors that amplify your natural positive features, allows

for mixing and matching. Favorites in solid colors, or muted styles, allow for

a do over with another outfit—no one can even tell that you are wearing it

again. Get your flash of color in your accessories, whether it be those impulsebuy

red boots or that Etsy jewelry piece. Key accessories dress up that simple

black jumper or everyday jeans into a multi-wear fashion-affair.

It.

Switch

When buying on a budget, buy things that you feel comfortable using in all

kinds of situations. Unless, of course, you feel that you’ve found that one-of-akind

piece, go simple when shopping. Buy pieces that are versatile for all sorts

of situations. The yoga pants that double as work clothes. The shoes that go

well with dresses and jeans. The solid green mini dress that works just as well

on the beach as it does for a night out on the town. That eye shadow that you

know would play up your eyes regardless of where you go. Style is every day,

and your clothes and accessories should be too.

5

6

Very few of us can boast about our creative abilities. It’s true that our

grandmothers made their own clothes, but most of us don’t have those skills

anymore. And the time! We’ve got no time. However, did you know that many

homemade beauty products use only three ingredients, are inexpensive,

and work better than your store-bought counterpart? For instance, for

a detoxifying body scrub, use equal parts (used) coffee grounds, sugar

and coconut oil. The coconut oil provides the sheen, the sugar the scrub,

and the coffee the lift. There are tons of simple body-care recipes online.

When it comes to skin and hair care, the best things are often the easiest—

and inexpensive.

80 | COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL

It Up.

Play

When embracing style on a budget, it’s important that what you buy looks

right and fits well. Don’t buy according to someone else’s style; buy what

fits your body and your look. Know your face type for makeup and jewelry

accents. Buy colors that complement or play up your complexion. Buy

clothing that fits your body type and highlights the parts of you that make

you feel especially confident. What works for someone else may not work

for you, and what works for you may not work for someone else. Style is just

another way to celebrate what makes you unique.

ENJOY A VIBRANT DOWNTOWN, RIVERWALK AND

WORLD-CLASS BEACHES

Charming Wilmington, North Carolina

By Marguerite Cleveland

Wilmington, North Carolina, is less known as a destination than its more famous Southern neighbors Charleston, South Carolina,

and Savannah, Georgia, and that is its charm. You won’t find the hordes of tourists; only those in the know about this vibrant

city on the banks of the Cape Fear River. Just a short drive from downtown Wilmington you will find some great beaches, each

with its own unique vibe.

Where to Stay

Downtown has a variety of places to stay, but you can’t beat the Front Street Inn for its location. It is just a short walk to the shops, restaurants

and lively nightlife that abounds downtown. This cute Inn has onsite parking—a plus when downtown. There are a variety of rooms, and

some are on the smaller size, but there are public spaces you can utilize. This is an historic hotel, so you won’t have all the amenities of a large

chain hotel, but its charm and location more than make up for it. Breakfast is included in the morning.

Another option is the Hampton Inn Wilmington-University Area/Smith Creek Station, which has a great location that is close to both

downtown and the beaches. Rates include breakfast.

YOU WON’T FIND THE HORDES OF TOURISTS;

ONLY THOSE IN THE KNOW ABOUT THIS

VIBRANT CITY ON THE BANKS OF THE CAPE

FEAR RIVER.

Where to Eat

Wilmington has an eclectic dining scene, with a bounty of local seafood and area

farms providing fresh produce to the city’s restaurants. There is also the Gullah

Geechee influence from the Africans who were enslaved in the area. If you are new

to Southern dining, make sure to try Pimento Cheese. This yummy spread is now featured on many menus as a starter and is served with crisp

lavash crackers. The local oysters are so good they even have their own trail. Shrimp and Grits are a staple of low-country cuisine, and just about

every restaurant you go to has its own recipe.

PinPoint Restaurant is located downtown and is the epitome of farm to table with the freshest bounty from local farmers, fishermen, oystermen and

shrimpers. Their names are on the menu. Speaking of menus, it changes every day to reflect what fresh ingredients are available. You will find a catch

of the day, chicken, beef and pork dishes, as well as a vegetarian entrée. Each one is prepared utilizing the fresh produce and herbs. On the menu

during my visit was hogfish, which must be spear caught. It eats crustaceans, so the meat has a sweet richness to it. Local Carrots was the name of

a shareable plate layered with purple carrot hummus, topped with a variety of carrots, herbs and seasoning. It is a unique dish and highlights the

types of food the chef makes.

The Pilot House is one of the oldest restaurants in the downtown area and has a huge local following. Located overlooking the Cape Fear River, it is

a lovely venue to dine at. The menu is heavy on fresh seafood and traditional Southern dishes, but the chef ’s not afraid to be creative. For example,

the Shrimp and Grits include collard greens, and to keep it from becoming a soupy mess, a fried grits cake is the base of this dish. It soaks up the jus

from the greens, and with the shrimp and other ingredients is such a unique take on this traditional Southern recipe.

Out on the boardwalk at Carolina Beach, make sure to stop at Britt’s Donuts. It has been a beach staple since 1939. The donuts are simple yeast

donuts with a glaze that is not too sweet. They sell so many that your order is hot from the fryer. So yummy! Also in this area is the Fat Pelican, one

of the diviest dive bars in the United States. This place is wild at night, but if you stop in when they first open, you will have the place to yourself.

What to Do

Airlie Gardens - AirlieGardens.org

Wilmington Downtown and Riverwalk - WilmingtonandBeaches.com

North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher - NCAquariums.com/fort-fisher

It is known for its huge walk-in cooler. You go in and

choose your beverage from canned beers and other

alcoholic beverages, and the bartender will ring

you up.

What to Do

Wilmington, with its surrounding beaches, provides

a plethora of things to do. Explore the downtown

area and visit the many local shops, restaurants

and museums. The newly revitalized Riverwalk is a

lovely place to stroll with cute little pocket gardens

and views of the Cape Fear River. A one-hour river

cruise on the Henrietta is a great way to learn a bit

about the history of the area and some fun, local

anecdotes. A must stop is Cape Fear Rum Cakes on

Front Street. This family owned business is kicking

out some seriously good cakes. The rum keeps them

moist and helps preserve the cakes in a vacuum seal

for six months. There are three sizes available, and

the 5-ounce size is enough for one to two people and

makes a perfect gift. Nothing on the shelves is older

than a day or two because they are selling as fast as

they make them.

Plan to spend a full day out at the Fort Fisher area. In the morning, do

a beach hike along the Basin Trail with views of the ocean before it gets

too hot. Then tour the North Carolina Aquariums with its state-of-theart

exhibits. The otters are always popular, as well as the sharks in the

big tank. Don’t miss the outside trails with some beautiful artwork. For

lunch, either pack a picnic or dine at the café at the aquarium. After

lunch, explore the Fort Fisher Museum and learn about this Civil War

site. Then walk around the outside exhibits to see the remnants of the

fort.

A beach day is a must while visiting this area. Kure Beach is a quieter

beach popular with retirees and families. Wrightsville Beach is bustling

and more of a challenge to find parking. At Carolina Beach, you will find

the boardwalk with lots of shops and amusement park rides. There is

really something for everyone. Each beach also has fishing piers where

you can rent fishing equipment.

Insider Tip: Make sure to read the parking signs. The side street parking

by shops and restaurants is usually two hours and turns over more

frequently. The lots have all-day parking options. All parking is fee based.

You can download an app to make the process easier. Some parking

meters have swipers for credit cards.

Airlie Gardens is a beautifully landscaped coastal south garden with

67 acres of formal gardens and walking paths. The crown jewel of the

gardens is the Airlie Oak, which is a Southern Live Oak tree almost 500

years old. It sits amidst an expansive lawn surrounded by azalea bushes.

Pick up a self-guided walking tour brochure at the entrance. Explore

more than a dozen gardens including the Pergola, Minnie Evans Bottle

Chapel, a seasonal butterfly house and much more.

With its revitalized downtown, Riverwalk, and charming walkable

historic district, as well as the spectacular beaches, Wilmington is the

perfect vacation destination.

JALAPEÑO

POPPERS

WITH BACON

Recipe Courtesy of Tina VanDenHeuvel

You can follow Tina @madebetterforyou on Instagram

INGREDIENTS:

12 jalapeños

1 8-oz. package bacon, each piece cut into thirds

2 8-oz. blocks cream cheese, softened

6 oz. Mexican-blend cheese, shredded

2 jalapeños, seeded and diced

1 tbsp. cumin

2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

METHOD:

• Preheat your oven to 400˚F. Spray a broiler pan, or cover a

sheet pan with aluminum foil, and place a wire rack on top

with non-stick cooking spray. Set it aside for later.

• Start by prepping the jalapeños using a chef’s knife to cut off

the stems, and cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise. Then, use

a spoon to scrape out all the seeds and the white membrane

inside the pepper. You can discard the seeds once you’re done

or keep a few to add to the cream cheese mixture if you like it

extra hot.

• In a medium-size mixing bowl, mix together the cream

cheese, cheese, jalapeños and seasonings. Fill each jalapeño

with the mix.

• Cut bacon strips into thirds and lay a piece on top of the

cream cheese mix. Once you have filled and topped all the

jalapeños with bacon, place them in the oven and bake for 25

to 30 minutes, or until bacon is done.

• Let cool before serving. Enjoy!

10 DAYS OF FAMILY

FUN

North Idaho Fair & Rodeo kicks off August 20!

By Jillian Chandler

Get ready for one of Kootenai County’s highlights of the

season! The North Idaho Fair & Rodeo returns to the Kootenai

County Fairgrounds August 20 through 29. Offering 10 days of

excitement and entertainment around every corner, whether

you attend one day or all 10, family and friends of all ages will enjoy it

all—from the carnival rides and games, to live entertainment and, of

course, the fair food!

From Brad’s World Reptile Show and Magician Adam the Great to The

Pirate’s Parrot Show and Terrance B Hypnotist, the kids are sure to be

amazed. And then there’s Los Moralitos Circus, which features fourthgeneration

performers showcasing professional tumbling, acrobats,

unicycles and aerialists—and don’t forget the clown!

For those thrill-seekers, you can’t forget the carnival rides. From the

slow and steady kiddie rides to those that are sure to have your heart

skipping a beat, and your breath taken away, there’s a ride with your

name on it.

Farm Park invites fair-goers for hands-on activities and daily

demonstrations. Inspired by the fair’s growing Farm to Table program,

which provides local fifth graders the opportunity for interactive

experience focused on agricultural components, they’re excited to

share their knowledge.

Live music, demo derbies, monster trucks, rodeo and more round out

this year’s fair.

Admission to the fair is $8 for adults and $6 for youth. For $25, receive

a wristband, which is good for all rides for one day only. For those who

plan to spend several days at the fair, you may want to opt for the

Carnival Golden Ticket, which allows the ticket holder a ride pass good

for all 10 days (does not include fair admission and must be purchased

in advance).

as well as purchase tickets, online at NIFair.fun.
