FARGO – A tiny, real seahorse was hanging around Amanda Heidt's neck the day I spotted her at the Plains Art Museum here.
FARGO — It started with a tube of Diorshow mascara. And then I discovered NARS lipstick. Now, I'm a regular Sephora shopper and enjoy makeup, especially lipstick. When I don't feel like venturing to the mall, I shop online. Ever since Sephora introduced a two-day shipping method called FLASH, I've been buying online a lot more often. Hello, stress-induced lipstick pick-me-ups. For $10 a year, www.Sephora.com shoppers get free two-day shipping on anything they buy, no minimum purchase required.
FARGO – Anna Lee's hats are an invitation. The 38-year-old milliner creates elegant, simple and bold hats that encourage conversation.
FARGO — Spring's a month away, but you don't have to wait for sunshine. Gilded crafts create a bright spot in the final weeks of winter. Floral vases, branches and plastic toys go for the gold with touches of metallic leaf. Genuine gold leaf sheets are created from pounding gold thinly. But for crafts, imitation will do — unless you're real fancy. Gold leaf sheets sold at craft stores and online are typically made of copper, but still look golden. And they're far more affordable.
FARGO—Most winter mornings, I feel like Holly Golightly in "Breakfast at Tiffany's." I want to keep my sleep mask on and stay in bed with my cat. But mornings don't have to be a struggle. The early hours set the tone for the day, and I want mine to be positive and uplifting, even on gray, wintry mornings.
FARGO – The Rev. Duane Pribula will lead an interfaith discussion on Pope Francis' encyclical "On Care for Our Common Home" from 5 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the North Dakota State University Lutheran Center, 1201 13th Ave. N.
FARGO — Junk Giant grew too big for its space. The antique, record and vintage furnishings store at 1304 13th Ave. S. has split in two. The original location now houses only records and vintage stereo equipment and it'll be renamed Vinyl Giant once a new logo is ready, says owner Aaron Swinkels, who operates the stores with girlfriend and business partner Erica Sponsler. The couple also started Plain State Farm, a sustainable, seasonal flower farm in Moorhead. Dividing the store between two locations creates better shopping experiences for customers, Swinkels says.
FARGO – Four Science, Religion and Lunch seminars are scheduled for February and March at North Dakota State University.
FARGO – In high school, Netha Cloeter wore her mom's clothes from the '70s. The fondness for vintage attire stuck with the 31-year-old director of education and social engagement at Plains Art Museum in Fargo.
