    Jim

    So the holidays are now behind us and we are looking for something new to celebrate. Personally, I am celebrating the re-birth of VillageConnectionMagazine.com. As experienced experts in magazine publishing and early adopters of social networking we are now offering one integrated marketing solution, with online and print campaigns running concurrently.

    We have just surpassed 17,500 friends and contacts, and we are now branching off into a video version of our magazine, including our new multimedia television channel and VillageConnectionMagazine.com video streaming.

    As we continue to be pioneers of social networking, and perfect our traditional print media offerings, we are now also providing social media, public relations, video production, and photographic services, via our new partners.

    This months issue features cover model Kara Nicole Ramos (local Paramount Theater employee turned supermodel) who also was kind enough to decorate our Valentines day gift guide. Please, as always remember to shop locally, and as our Valentines day gift guide features all local businesses, feel free to use your Village Connection Discount Card.

    Stay tuned for our future issues, which always keep you in the local loop of whats exciting and unique to our community. While we are continuing to feature local artists and establishments we are also now expanding our coverage and bios on local personalities and iconic Huntington perspectives.

    As always, we welcome your feedback and we invite you to become part of our growing network on facebook at VillageConnectionMagazine.

    In the meantime, Ill see you in the Village...

    Lovely locks are irresistible especially on Valentines Day! Whether youre celebrating with a luscious dinner, a wonderful evening out (at, say, Huntingtons own Paramount Theater) or just want to add some fun drama to your day, show off your fabulous self with a special new look.

    This season hair trends are wild, with a rock-n-roll attitude. Consider a shaggy, longer bob of full, healthy locks, or a rockstar crop thats buzzed in back with texture and height on top.

    Natural waves take center stage in longer looks. Give creative license to curls with light products such as Avedas Be Curly Style Prep in combination with a flax aloe gel on damp hair to enhance its natural wave. Limit frizz with a curl enhancer, blow dry on low with a mild heat. Shape curls with your fingers to tease out that natural texture. Bangs are sexy with edgy, jagged fringe.

    Make your eyes even more entrancing with a rich mascara. Sweep the brush toward the outer corners of your eyes for that ultra-long,

    movie star appeal. Apply in layers let one layer dry completely before adding another and be sure to comb out any clumps. Its a glamorous look so dont hesitate to take a stand with this bolder lash, especially for Valentines Day!

    Get flirty by combining that mesmerizing lash with an innocent pinkish blush to your cheeks. Think rosebuds, then go a shade lighter! Tie that in with eyeshadow thats also boasting a blushing hue. Pink lips with a high gloss shine says, Come hither!

    Turn up the heat with your own Valentines Day look this year with a style thats va-va-voom, to make your sweetheart swoon!
