While a war against cargos has been waged with the pocketed shorts deemed a baggy and bitter enemy of fashion, much more flattering military-inspired clothing has found its way to the runways and store racks this fall.
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
— Henry David Thoreau

Kermit the Frog famously lamented: “It’s not easy bein’ green. It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things.” But with so many extraordinary items featuring spectacular shades of the hue (including “Greenery,” Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017) currently gracing fashion runways, and store shelves in and around the intersection of Routes 1, 128 and 129, you are sure to stand out in crowds this spring.

The Maine coast is home to some of the most picturesque spots in New England, and fortunately for residents off of Rt. 1, it’s just a short ride up 95 North. While it may still be too early in the season to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches, it’s never too early for a daytrip to Portland for some lobster rolls, shopping and sightseeing. And if the traditional clam shacks don’t motivate you to hit the road, maybe the rest of the culinary scene will. In recent years, Bon Appetit named Portland the “foodiest” small town and in February, nine Portland chefs, restaurants, bakers and brewmasters were named semifinalists for the prestigious 2017 James Beard Awards.
A sun-kissed glow is one fashion that never seems to go out of style. However, exactly how to acquire the look has varied and evolved over the years. It is believed that in 1923 iconic fashion designer and quintessential trendsetter Coco Chanel made bronzed skin chic after catching a bit too much sun while on her yacht in Cannes, France. She later admitted that her look was accidental and she simply stayed in the sun a bit too long. But that didn’t stop tanned skin from becoming an international trend or from becoming a symbol of affluence — a way of displaying leisure time spent vacationing, by the pool or on the ski slopes.
Your child has received several college acceptances and is close to picking the school of their dreams. Now comes the big question: How are you going to pay for it?

There are a variety of financial aid tools available to students to help pay for college, including scholarships, need-based awards, work-study employment and student loans. According to The National Center for Education Statistics, nearly two-thirds of today’s full-time college students receive some form of need-based aid. Need-based financial aid eligibility is based on two calculations – the total cost of education and the family’s ability to pay. While the cost of education can vary significantly from institution to institution, these calculations include all reasonable costs (tuition, room, board and living expenses) of attendance.
