By Kristen Domingue Photo: Heather Nash Photography for The Brick Magazine We loved talking with Susan Todoroff of Juicy Kitchen in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Her frankness and candor about what it takes to open a business from home with young children is a testament to the unavoidable truth that we can’t do it alone. Read on to learn how Todoroff found support, the difference it made, and the challenges it helped her overcome along the way.    Juicy Kitchen started as a spark of an idea in the early 1980s.

By Ryan Brooks It's summer, which means lots of sun, beach, and pool is on the agenda for all of us. I know most of us have our go-to beach bag musts.

Is it Time for a Parenting Make-over

2018-06-27T17:24:40-04:00July 1st, 2018|Parenting|

MAKEOVER: The Seasonal Cycle

2018-06-27T17:13:03-04:00July 1st, 2018|Inspirational|

By Lisa Profera MD  Confused by all of the claims made by various skin rejuvenation systems? Afraid of toxins found in many skincare products on the market? Not sure what is best for your needs? Well, you have many choices, one of which is to use your own plasma for a more natural path toward a better complexion.    PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, refers to the layer of plasma (extracted from the patient’s own blood) which contains platelets, stem cells, growth factors, and collagen. PRP is like “liquid gold” for your skin. It can be used on the surface as well as injected into the deeper layers to [...]
