Or that it has smeared outside of the lip line? Well, today we are going to change that, because we are talking about long-wear lip stains, hydrated lips, and this season’s most popular lip colors. </p> <p>When it comes to beautiful lips you’ve got to start with a solid foundation. That means a well-hydrated lip, and with Utah’s dry air this can be a little bit tricky to accomplish, but doable. Although a lip moisturizer does help, it is important to hydrate from within as well. Water is key to beautiful skin and lips, so drink up!</p> <p> As far as lip moisturizers go here are a few favorites, and with a healthy lip you will be sure to notice a difference in the wear of your lipsticks and stains. They will not only last longer, but they’ll be smoother and brighter. </p> <p><img alt="" height="436" src="/site_media/uploads/lipimage2.jpeg" width="290"></p> <p>Here is a great lip treatment from <a href="http://www.fresh.com/US/lip-treatment/sugar-lip-treatment-advanced-therapy/">Fresh </a> (a personal favorite) that creates lasting moisture though out the day.</p> <p><img alt="" height="537" src="/site_media/uploads/lipimage3.jpg" width="350"></p> <p><a href="http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/chanel-rouge-coco-baume-hydrating-conditioning-lip-balm/">Chanel</a>’s Rouge Coco Baume is also a great option.   </p> <p>Now that we have established our foundation, lets talk lip color and lip stains.

This is YOUR project, your home. We are here to guide you and to help create YOUR vision. The trick is that you don't always know your vision (or what you think you need may not actually be what you really need), but by listening carefully and going through our design process, we can create your ultimate vision. It may be a little different than what you originally thought, which leads me to the next part . . .</p> <p><img alt="" height="327" src="/site_media/uploads/September2014/interior-designer2.jpg" width="490"></p> <p>Trust us. You hired us because you like our work. And because we know what we're doing. We've got years of experience behind us, and we've done several projects like yours. You're going to get the best result when you can let go a little and trust us to do what we've been doing for years. There's a reason you like our work—remember that.</p> <p><img alt="" height="327" src="/site_media/uploads/September2014/interior-designer3.jpg" width="490"></p> <p>We can save you time and stress, if you let us. We are YOUR representative. Our job is to work with you to develop the plan you want, and then to implement it. This means we will communicate with all parties involved, and we will provide the information needed to make it all happen. While we understand that you're excited about the project and you want to be involved, please remember you don't need to take on the stress of it all—turn that part over to us and let us deal with it. It's what we do. You can just sit back and enjoy the ride.</p> <p>We recently received an email from a client that said: "(We) are sitting here relaxing and loving the new space. It turned out beautiful! I can finally envision it." This was a bit of an inside joke, as we proposed a very unique element to their kitchen layout, and because it was so different, they told us many times they were having a hard time envisioning it, but they trusted us. And in the end, they understand exactly why we proposed what we did, and they love it.</p> <p><img alt="" height="327" src="/site_media/uploads/September2014/interior-designer4.jpg" width="490"></p> <p><em>All photos in this post by Enzy Design</em><br><br><em><a href="http://utahstyleanddesign.com/blog/tag/nicole-zeigler/" target="_blank">Nicole Zeigler</a>,</em><em> </em><em><a href="https://plus.google.com/+NicoleZeigler-enzy?rel=author">Google</a></em><em> , CKBR, Allied ASID, NCIDQ is the owner / lead designer at enzy design, LLC; specializing in kitchen &amp; bathroom design and residential remodeling.  </em><em><a href="http://www.enzydesign.com/" target="_blank">www.enzydesign.com</a></em></p> <p><em>This post was originally published on <a href="http://www.utahstyleanddesign.com/blog/2014/09/11/so-youve-hired-an-interior-designer/">utahstyleanddesign.com</a>.</em></p>Salt Lake magazineMon, 15 Sep 2014 10:53:28 +0000http://saltlakemagazine.com/blog/2014/09/15/so-youve-hired-an-interior-designer/At HomeIn The HiveDan Nailen&#39;s Lounge Act: Walk for a causehttp://saltlakemagazine.com/blog/2014/09/15/dan-nailens-lounge-act-walk-for-a-cause/<p><strong><img alt="" height="159" src="/site_media/uploads/September2014/saltlakeaidswalk.jpg" width="490"></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.saltlakeaidswalk.org/">SALT LAKE AIDS WALK, CITY CREEK</a>, Saturday, Sept. 20, 9:30 a.m.</strong></p> <p>The Utah AIDS Foundation is about halfway to its $60,000 goal for the 2014 Salt Lake AIDS Walk a week out from the Sept. 20, but it's not too late for the community to help the organization hit its mark and for you to be part of the success.

There was one that was like, 'Sonic Youth had a baby with Joy Division,' or something. Sometimes I’m just blown away ‘cause I don’t see that.”</p> <p><span style="">It was about an hour until show time, and the guys were hauling their equipment from their compact Great Pumpkin sedan (it’s orange) onto the venue stage. Fresh on the set list was “The Kids Want It,” which Isbell explains is a “sarcastic, inside joke” song about “how there’s a million bands out right now who want to sound really pretty and have a weird instrument and ask these big, epic questions.”</span></p> <p>What else is left to do but give a shrug-off to the whole smorgasbord of labels? Genre Zero decided not only to embrace their existential dilemma, but also name themselves after it.</p> <p>You could say the Salt Lake troupe was founded on the gravitational pull of frontman Isbell, who through occasions such as one-off shows and People’s Markets, had inadvertently recruited the eventual crew, rounded out by Tiffin Brough (violin) and Brad Hart (bass).</p> <p><img alt="" height="825" src="/site_media/uploads/September2014/genrezero2.jpg" width="490"></p> <p>Their full-length debut was recorded at Bountiful’s <a href="http://onionstreetstudio.com/">Onion Street Studio</a>, and released earlier this year under Hart’s new label, <a href="https://www.facebook.com/EmptySetRecords">Empty Set Records</a>. <em>Get Dressed, Do Nothing</em> gives us a soundtrack reflective of the dark materials within Isbell’s heart: “I’ve had a few <em>really bad</em> relationships, and that definitely fueled the earlier stuff, but [the songs have] matured,” he says.</p> <p>Then in what seems like a common occurrence, Isbell bursts out in some inspired spoken prose: “It’s less of <em>‘Oh, I’m just a jilted lover,’</em> as much as it is, <em>‘Who are the players in the situation, and what are the mistakes that they make?’</em> A lot of the stuff I find myself drawn to is the nature of the truth; difficult moral situations where there’s kind of not a right answer.”</p> <p>Sonically, an album highlight is found in “21<sup>st</sup> Century,” where all four players are given center stage. The bass line of a classic rock ditty collides splendidly with the Brough’s violin, hearkening something of a Vampire Weekend song gone back in time.</p> <p>“We’re a four-piece, so the fiddle does a little bit of lead and a little bit of ambiance,” says Brough, the band’s lone female member. “It’s got such a range of what it can do, so in the context of a rock and pop setting, you just get a lot of unique music out of it.”</p> <p><img alt="" height="368" src="/site_media/uploads/September2014/genrezero3.jpg" width="490"><br><em>Photo provided by Genre Zero</em></p> <p>And on the current state of belonging to the “zero” genre? Isbell sees no need to figure things out, really. “I think if you went and listened to bands that are the hallmark of those ‘easy’ genre descriptions, we don’t sound like that. In our fantasy, we’d be this crazy band that’s taking everything and distilling it into something else. <em>Or</em> the reverse, where we would have the <em>protozaic ooze, </em>or whatever, and we could turn it into anything.” Another inspired prosaic moment, no doubt, and his bandmates take it in with a smile.  </p>Salt Lake magazineFri, 12 Sep 2014 12:20:50 +0000http://saltlakemagazine.com/blog/2014/09/12/breakout-band-genre-zero-kind-of-sounds-like-insert-band-name/A&EIn The Hive
