November Trends and Trendsetters in Coweta County


By Corby Carlin Winters, Public Relations & Marketing, Winters Media & Publishing Inc.

Each month we cover some of the hot trends from health and wellness, fashion and style, business or even tapping into your creative side.

Newnan and Georgia Pride Strong
Looking to share your hometown pride? Try out some note cards. You can check these out at  Gillyweed in downtown Newnan. If you are looking for everything Georgia, then check out The Classic Market owned by Denise Pryor. The shop is full from top to bottom with all things Georgia. You will find everything from dish towels, pillows, to baby and children gifts and books. They also carry Georgia wines, which you can sample for a small fee.

Big, Bold and Fabulous Lashes

Lashes are as popular now as there were in the 1970s. I’ve done all kinds of research, talked with countless women everywhere and tried many options myself to get those long, glamorous lashes. Women can try lash extensions available in boutique salons like Kat Eyes in downtown Newnan or a locally owned  franchise such as Amazing Lash.  These extensions last about three weeks and come in all sorts of styles. However, they need to be taken care of and don’t do well with showers or lots of crying. I’m serious about that last point. If you cry too much they might just fall off.

You can also buy drug store brands and change them as you wish. But practice makes perfect here and choosing the appropriate length for your face is important if you want them to look more natural. You need a good glue so they don’t fall off during an important event.

Some women have chosen Latisse, which was used to treat glaucoma and then proved to grow long lashes. It can be purchased at Physlim Weight Loss and Wellness.

The Studios Where Artists Create
Those who love artists, what they create and just want to meet them are in for a treat. The Southern Hands Artist Studios has hosted tours for six years and you can visit art studios in Fayette and Coweta counties on Nov. 10th and 11th.  The tour is free and open to the public and gives an up close look at 25 artists, like Sherry Cook, blacksmith artisan Michael Sebacher, Seth Felts with multi-medium techniques and weaver Ann Lynn Whiteside.

Is The Farmhouse Style Right For You?
The farmhouse look is popping up everywhere, from the big city to our neck of the woods. If you are looking for some very unique and special items for your home then check out Senoia’s The Good Junk Company, nestled in a quaint space filled to the brim with Good Stuff and “The old farmhouse style and decor for the modern farmhouse.” The farm look is really making a home a comfortable casual place to live and design is only limited by your imagination.

A Little Fashion Scoop
Just in case you did not hear, cargo shorts and pants are supposedly out. I am not sure I agree with that myself but the eldest SON said so. However, I love them on guys myself. They hold all kinds of fun gadgets like keys, wallets, knives, change, and whatever else guys like to haul around. And even if they are on the outs, I’d much rather see those than guys wearing pajamas as everyday attire. That’s just never okay.  And I also suggest you do not need to wear slippers either. Now when it comes to cute yoga pants and fitness clothes, you are just fine. We live in a busy time and clothes that can go from the gym to the grocery store is all good with me.  Dragonfly Running Company and Grit & Grace carry many of these transitional outfits.

Holidays Helping Others
The holidays are not just about “you.” That is what I have often told The SONS. As we approach Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is a perfect time to see how we can give and not just get this giving season. There are many nonprofits that can use your help this year.
