There are so many new trends happening in social media, politics, business and fashion. 

Here’s the latest.

On The Wine Scene

The wine selection at Classic Market.

Looking for a fun night with friends where you can fine tune your love and knowledge of wines around the world? Then The Classic Market in Senoia has you covered. Chrissy Lesseski is the owner and her shop features over 50 Georgia vendors. Chrissy originally started with just Georgia wines and now has expanded to wines from around the world. She is also spotlighting local beers too.  The Classic Market presents six pours of wine and a glass of your choice paired with a shared charcuterie board.  Each wine is specially chosen to fit a specific country, region or winery. You and your friends will find the evening enlightening and educational too. The wine tastings are held eight to ten evenings a month and fill up quickly.  

On The Beauty & Skin Care 

Mary Ellen Hutchenson, owns Merle Norman Cosmetics in Newnan and LaGrange, and also Sugars Boutique in Newnan. Mary Ellen is an amazing business woman, creative and talented. Since Covid Mary Ellen said “they have definitely seen an increase in skin care sales. The masks have been hard on our skin so products focusing on fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticities and firmness are among our top sellers.”  Men are investing in their skincare regime too.  “Anti-aging complex products that are loaded with triple peptides, ceramides, botanicals and other wrinkle fighters are the best defense to fight premature aging,” Mary Ellen said. “Right now, customers are more concerned about results rather than costs.” 

On The Style Scene 

It is always fun to spruce up your wardrobe with some new seasonal elements. This summer, shorts with suit jackets are classy and cute, yellow is hot, feathers are everywhere as are  leopard and lace. The monochromatic look is slimming and such a classic look. 

On the Local Art Scene

If you happen to be in Savannah this summer you will be able to see Valerie Dumas’ paintings at Savannah Gallery of Art.  Valarie is owner of Gillyweed in downtown Newnan, which is celebrating their 10-year anniversary.  The shop is full of wonderful finds, new and old.   

Jenni Adkins Horne, another local artist, has a new collection of paintings solely of women of all ages which is entitled “The Beloved.” Jenni debuted this collection at the Spring Art Walk at The Boyd Gallery in March and it was well received.

“The Beloved” collection is now on display at The Crosstown Grill in Peachtree City.  

The Local Alchemist 

I am putting the spotlight on someone who has made a magical and positive impact in our community. Mr. Joe Crane Sr., did something that was noticed by many, but not many know his part in this wonderful Random Act of Kindness.   So we want to raise a glass to Mr. Joe Crane Sr., for buying the old dilapidated Newnan House Motel, tearing it down and getting everything trucked off. Thank you for removing this eyesore!!
