NC Wineries are growing every month! We are now up to more than 150 wineries state wide. Surprised?! Even more surprising is that prior to prohibition North Carolina was the largest wine producing state in the country! Of course, at that time it was primarily our native Muscadine wine – yes that sweet wine that everyone says their grandmothers used to make for them. The Muscadine wines have matured over the years. Read more about the history of NC Wine and the Muscadine grapes at North Carolina Wine Gifts. Go out and discover NC Wine Country this Fall!
After our last episode in Hendersonville North Carolina, we decided to head back to LUX Salon to have a few of the many beautifying and relaxing experiences they have to offer. When I walked in, Meagan immediately welcomed me and we talked for a few moments. Then Casey came up, led me away, and offered a cup of coffee. Gladly accepted. This was just the beginning. I was taken into the “Quiet Room” which is a whole ‘nother world. The lights were dimmer, the music was softer, I was listening to running water… as Casey started massaging my hands with sugar; leading to an amazing paraffin hand wax. Wow! I am SO addicted. This was like the engagement period, the red carpet, the road to a wonderful experience as I began to relax and kind of let this take me away.
And it did… Jenna took over (or took me over) for a “Wash House Experience” that I will never forget. I am very high energy (I do more work in my sleep than you do in real life) but this completely melted my mind and “forced” me to relax a little more. The product they used was so refreshing on my scalp, and believe me.. her fingers did the walking.. and they gave me an incredible hair-wash-massage. You have never! At one point I shivered, and at another point I was covered in goosebumps, I even dreamed for a second as actual feelings came back into my body and soul. From a social media robot, back to a human being in less than an hour. I am tellin’ you! So WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Jenna. Next, Jenna took me out to her magical hair station and cut my hair perfectly. She matched my style with a “haircut” that I felt very comfortable with. It brought the real me out even more; which if some of you would get to know.. is so beautiful hahaha! Anyway, you know what I’m saying’.. this place got the goods. If you do not know where to start, start right here, at LUX, and tell them Gary said they can hook you up! They will take care of you. Let their creativity give you an enhanced or new image of the beautiful (or handsome lol) you.
While the social media team was working in Hendersonville NC recently, we received a “tweet” from Lux Salon. We had time to spare, and had heard so much about this spot, that we decided to stop by randomly and see what we find.
To our amazement, we met the one and only Christine Audiss and the wonderful Jenna Wilson who welcomed us and toured our team. The initial feeling.. these gals are great and this place is comfortable; we wouldn’t mind spending more time here. We even got to see the “Quiet Room” .. luxury spa type relaxation at its best.
The final decision, we are putting this place on our Western North Carolina staycation mapper of things to do in Hendersonville. We are headed back to have the full experience, and we will keep you updated on our visit!!
Bullying happens everywhere, and it does not stop when you get out of High School. Many have been faced with bullying from parents, family, siblings, teachers, so-called friends, employers, co-workers and even strangers. Bullying happens at home, at school, on the streets and yes… on social media outlets constantly. This even happens in Western North Carolina, many times by adults who know better, claim that they are community minded & wear a peace hat. Some bullies are loud, proud and vocal about it; while others privately bully others behind the scenes with a smile on their face. Bullies are weaklings that find their strength in stepping on what they consider weaker people, instead of working to better themselves. They put a mask of toughness up to hide who they really are… weak and helpless, screaming for help. It is easier for them to pick on others and make enemies instead of friendships. The team at West Henderson High School performs and makes a statement to the song “Roar” by Katy Perry. This was submitted to Good Morning America for the contest.
