Eyebrows.

Maybe you think about them everyday, and maybe you don’t. But did you know that they’re actually your most important facial feature? Yes! Eyebrows are even more noticeable than your eyes. According to a recent study held by University of Lethbridge in Canada, it’s those beautiful brows of yours that make your face recognizable to others.

Now, a lot of us don’t know how the heck to make our eyebrows look like Cara Delevingne, but there is one local lady who can help.

Her name is Brittany Leitzel—owner of The Pink Lady Salon and Pink Lady Permanent, a personalized services specializing in shaping your brows through microblading. Microblading is defined as a semi-permanent method to get those brows looking “on point.” Brittany can help you!

“JUST A KID”

Everyone is “Just a Kid” from somewhere, but Exit Lancaster students are different than most other kids. By growing up in Lancaster and being a part of this substantial program, Exit Lancaster students learn the fundamental values of giving back to their community.

Exit Lancaster’s Just A Kid campaign is not just about the positive impact this non-profit program strives to provide for its students, but more about the exceptional students themselves—the ones who are involved. Since 2003, Exit Lancaster kids have volunteered over 10,000 hours of their time—just one of the many ways in which Exit Lancaster’s core lessons have been implemented in their everyday lives.

“Exit Lancaster, to me, is mostly based off of community involvement. They always encourage us to do community service, be involved in our community, and know what is going on around us—how it betters ourselves being aware of what is going on around us, how the community is always there for you, and how you should always be there for your community,” explains an Exit Lancaster student, Danae.

When students and their families commit to the hard work, principles, and fun which encompass Exit Lancaster, a whole world of opportunities open up. With your help, Exit Lancaster can continue to encourage, educate, and mentor students to give back to their community, and create a winning life plan.

GET INVOLVED

Ready to get involved? Join Exit Lancaster’s Just A Kid campaign by getting involved. You can donate, mentor a student, volunteer, or purchase one of our “Just A Kid” t-shirts online.

Make sure to share a fun photo yourself wearing your “Just A Kid” t-shirt on social media, tagging #JustAKidFromLancaster.

Looking for the perfect family photo spot this Summer? Stop by the pop-up flower patch on the corner of East Oregon and Kissel Hill Rd located near the Lancaster Airport. While the owners allow pictures they do request that you don’t pick the flowers since they were planted to help attract bees. We stopped by this week to capture some of our own pictures! Enjoy!

We’re very excited for the brand new Chop Sushi that just opened in Lancaster. Healthy, convenient and super cute. The Things To Do Lancaster team had the pleasure of stopping by for lunch and this great new spot didn’t disappoint. We highly recommend and welcome Chop Sushi!

 

I’m a sucker for silent auctions, especially when you know the funds are going to a good cause. At one local fundraiser this past Spring, I set my eyes on items that focused on experience. I was excited to see an array of interesting activities and couldn’t wait to get bidding. After a lot of table stalking (oh, you know you’ve done it), I was lucky enough to snag four Phillies tickets, four Sight and Sound tickets and the one item I really wanted: Polo Lancaster tickets! That’s right, I was heading to a polo match this Summer, and I couldn’t wait. You see, I’ve never been to a polo match before and looked forward to learning more about the game and checking out the local Lancaster Polo scene, now in its 74th year.

When you’re lucky to get a private spot around the field you take full advantage. It works like tailgating. You pull up your car to your spot, back in, open the trunk and set up your space. You can tell the pros with tables, coolers, tents and chairs all lined up and ready for the game. Only a small wooden frame outlines the field and they do suggest setting up your area a few feet back so when the horses step over the lip they don’t step on you. This was very helpful, because they do step over which is exciting and scary all at once.

The horses are beautiful and the 15 minute chukkers or periods are full of action. I was hooked and so was my family. Between the chukkers you and the family can stomp down the divots which is the tradition.

The people were very friendly and the announcer was a hoot. Georgie even got to change the scoreboard which only enhanced the experience.

After the match was over (we lost to Delaware), the players rode their horses around the field so we could all high five them.
If you get a chance to check out a match, go! It’s fun for the whole family and the game is a sight to see. Just another great thing to do in Lancaster County.

Strasburg PA is know for many wonderful Lancaster treasures. Take a ride on a steam train at the Strasburg Railroad and afterwards stop by the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, visit one of the many antique shops and even stay in a railroad motel called The Red Caboose. Don’t forget to pick up an ice cream at the creamery in the square and so much more. Now the quaint town of Strasburg can add a funky, modern cafe to the list of wonderful shops, stops and attractions. Introducing The Speckled Hen Coffee & Kitchen, this bright and airy cafe not only serves great coffee by local roaster Passenger coffee but their food is fresh, healthy and filling!

The facade of the building doesn’t do the interior justice but it adds to the charm. Once inside your eyes are drawn to the crisp white and gray walls adorned with über chic rooster branding and, lucky for us parents, the kids are drawn to the spacious play area. Yes, mom and dads, you can sip your coffee in peace while the kids play with toys and trains, of course.

The staff was friendly, service was fast and I have to say, it’s a nice addition to the Strasburg food scene. I look forward to our next visit and their green smoothie (a must for smoothie lovers)!
