Love the Skin You’re In: Vitality Med Spa offers full-service boutique skincare experience

Love the Skin You’re In: Vitality Med Spa offers full-service boutique skincare experience

Stepping out in faith, Tavia Osterstock, licensed esthetician, partnered in opening Vitality Med Spa in the heart of Bluffton. Originally renting a small room to see her clients in Bluffton Village, her passion for skincare and vision for what could be blossomed in May of 2018 when she opened Vitality Med Spa with Dr. Kristi Blessitt. Blessitt, a medical doctor who had taken some family time, was now ready to go back to work with a focus on hormone replacement therapy and aesthetic injectables. Shortly after, Joanie Vilcheck, RN, joined Osterstock and Blessitt in providing IV vitamin therapy to further complete their spa services.

Sign of the Times: Under the steady hand of Captain Tom Doyle, Commander Zodiac sails toward the future.

For the time being, we’re going to assume that you don’t need to be told what Commander Zodiac is. This is, after all, an operation that shepherded countless people across the waves toward life-long memories every day for 34 years in South Beach Marina. If you’re one of the lucky few who grew up on the island, you may have even spent a summer or two working for its captain, Tom Doyle. If you’re one of the many who came here on vacation and never left, that decision may have well been made aboard one of their signature rafts.

The Thin Blue Line: Meet the men and women behind the badge who are keeping the streets of Beaufort County safe.

As you make your way around Beaufort County, their reassuring presence is everywhere. Not just behind the wheel of a police cruiser, you’ll find the men and women of law enforcement walking the streets, engaging the community and fulfilling their promise to protect and serve.

Sure, you may not be so glad to see them when you get caught playing fast and loose with the speed limit; we’ve all been there. But when you need them the most, it’s comforting to know how seriously our police officers take their sworn duty.

And for them, that’s exactly what it is. Not just a job. Not just a calling. Theirs is a vow to guard over our community, risking life and limb every day they walk out the door. On behalf of our entire community, it is a privilege to spotlight a few of our finest.

How to Get Divorced

How to Get Divorced

Though I have never sought a divorce, several friends and family members have, and each have shared insights into their experience both during and after their divorce. Whether it was an “amicable” Gwyneth Paltrow-Chris Martin consciously uncoupling divorce, or it was more of a Kathleen Turner-Michael Douglas in War of the Roses divorce, undoubtedly one distinct fact remained: Divorce is hard. “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” said one friend, who in addition to being a competitive mountain biker, also survived thyroid cancer prior to his divorce.
