A NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER

T H E WOODLANDS

READY OR NOT



The symphony of the birds chirping in the morning welcomes this new month with a medley of energ y and vigor. April is such a pleasurable month and with the warmer temperatures remaining consistent, we are ready to do things outdoors, do things for ourselves, do things with the April holidays, and just have good ‘ole fun. I love it! Even though April Fool’s is behind us, the month is a celebration! April is festive with the invigorating enthusiasm for all the outside excursions; enjoying nature at our neighborhood parks and playgrounds, cruising on the bike paths, enjoying a family picnic or even nurturing your garden. Let’s not forget the Easter checklist—-bunny suit, basket of candy, egg hunt, elegant dress or fancy suit, and of course, reservations at your favorite brunch spot! This holiday adds all the hospitality and joyful customs of the fresh season. Now, deciding what’s new this month, reviewit brings you our vintage issue. Fashion and designer trends have a way of coming back and today’s top style cues from the past are being created with artistic rebirth. There can be little doubt that the nostalgic styles of retro and modern resurgence are impacting the runway drama as well as inspiring vintage enthusiasts. Go down memory lane and reminisce! Next month we are featuring our annual TOP House & Home Professionals issue with the best in real estate, home décor, home improvement and so much more. This is the perfect time of the year when homeowners like to lavish attention to their homes, so the opportunity is here for our TOP experts to give us a call for an ad space and even enjoy the “Rolling with My Homies Mixer” in May.

Your personal Destin takes white sand beaches, emerald waters, and world-class shopping to the next level.

Paradise

White sand beaches, relaxed dining, and world-class shopping; the perfect vacation isn’t a world away, it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump away in Destin, Florida. Destin has been one of the best-kept secrets of the South for years. When you’re there, you feel as though you’re in a different world, where worries float out the window and summer will never end. Everyone is welcomed in Destin, but if you want to adventure like a local, look no further than Miramar Beach. Just up the road from the buzz of Destin, Miramar Beach in South Walton offers the same great dining, escapes, and white sands with a bit of local flair – and the lodging is particularly outstanding. Newman-Dailey Resort Properties offers several amazing options for families of every size, but the brand new Villa Burago takes the cake. The luxurious vacation home features 4,389 square feet of luxury furnishings against a backdrop of pristine beachfront – it’s so opulent that you might feel pressured to don your tux or ball gown to match such finery. This high-end, second story condo epitomizes everything Destin truly offers – incredible beauty that simultaneously welcomes you to relax. Miramar Beach and Destin feature some of the best restaurants and hot spots in Florida, but the crown jewel of the area – one that is frequently hidden away – is its outstanding shopping. Not far from the luxury of Villa Burago lies a shopping adventure that matches its splendor – The Silver Sands Premium Outlets. Featuring all of the designers that you love, from Michael Kors to Kate Spade, it’s easy to spend the entire day lost in a shopper’s paradise. Whether you’re headed to Destin to spend time reconnecting with family, relaxing on the white sand beaches, taking in the scenery of the emerald-green waters, grabbing delicious local cuisine, or getting in some retail therapy, your personal paradise is closer than you ever could have imagined.

Roast Rack of Lamb 2 racks of lamb (each 1½-1¾ pounds, with 7-8 ribs), frenched and trimmed of excess fat 1 cup coarse fresh bread crumbs 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons chicken stock 2 shallots, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, chopped ¼ cup flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper

1. 2.

Pre-heat oven to 450°F. Season the racks of lamb all over with salt and pepper. 3. Place the racks of lamb bone side down in a roasting pan and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the lamb (but not touching the bone) registers 125°F for rare or 135°F for medium rare, about 20-25 minutes. 4. While the meat is roasting, in a mediumsized bowl, combine the bread crumbs, oil, stock, shallots, garlic, parsley, thyme, rosemary, ¼ teaspoon salt and ⅛ teaspoon of pepper and mix well. 5. Pre-heat the broiler on high. 6. Pat the bread crumb mixture evenly on the meat side of the lamb. 7. Place the lamb under the broiler and broil until the topping is lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes. Watch closely...don’t let it burn! 8. Transfer the racks to a cutting board and slice the racks into chops by cutting between the bones. 9. Transfer the chops to a platter or arrange 2 or 3 chops on individual plates. 10. Garnish with parsley and serve at once. photo and recipe from howtofeedaloon.com

Using a 1½ inch cookie cutter, cut 40 small circles from the bread. You can use the leftover pieces for stuffing or allow them to dry and process them into bread crumbs. You can also make croutons! Set your bread pieces aside. In the bowl of a large stand mixer or a medium mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese, sour cream, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, fine sea salt, garlic powder and onion powder. Lightly coat each bread piece with the cream cheese mixture. Place one thin cucumber slice on each bread piece. Top each with fresh dill sprigs, minced roasted red pepper and/or chives. You can do all three or a blend of them or none at all!

Glazed Ham 1 10-12-pound fully cooked, trimmed, bone-in smoked ham (shank end), room temperature 2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice ½ cup dark brown sugar, packed photo and recipe from epicurious.com

¾ cup bourbon ½ cup guava or apple jelly, warmed 2 large shallots, peeled and thinly sliced 3 whole allspice 3 whole cloves Zest of 1 orange, plus 2 oranges cut into ¼-inch-thick slices 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated

Position a rack in the lower third of oven and preheat to 325°F. Using a sharp knife, score the fat covering the ham in a ¾-inch-wide diamond pattern (do not cut into the meat). Place the ham in a 10x14-inch roasting pan and add 1 cup water. Roast the ham for 2 hours. While the ham is roasting, prepare the glaze: In a heavy, medium saucepan over low heat, combine 1 cup orange juice, brown sugar, and bourbon. Bring to a simmer and continue simmering for 10 minutes. Add the guava or apple jelly, shallots, allspice, and cloves, and continue simmering until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes. Add the orange zest and the remaining 1 cup orange juice, and bring to a boil. Continue boiling until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the orange slices and fresh ginger, and cook until the orange slices are tender, about 2 minutes. Once the ham has been in the oven for two hours, drape the glazed orange slices over the ham, securing them with toothpicks, and brush the ham and oranges with about ½ cup of glaze, reserving the remainder for serving. Continue roasting the ham until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 145°F, about 30 minutes. To Serve: Remove the toothpicks from the ham and arrange the orange slices on a platter. Slice the ham and arrange on top of the oranges. Warm the remaining glaze and serve alongside.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut the top off the apples to make a flat surface. Cut a strip of peel around the apple right next to the cut surface. Remove the core of the apples, making sure to leave the skin at the bottom intact. Brush the apples with a tablespoon of the lemon juice. In a small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients except for the water and remaining lemon juice. Stuff apples with this mixture. Mound any remaining mixture on top of the apples. You can also cap each apple with the top that you cut off, if you’d like. Place in a shallow baking dish and pour ⅓ cup water and remaining 1 tablespoon of lemon juice around apples. Bake the apples, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes until apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Let cool 15 minutes before serving with hard sauce, ice cream, or whipped cream.

In a medium sized Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot with a lid, warm oil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium/low, add onions, cover and for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and continue to cook the onions, stirring often, until a nice golden brown color is achieved. The caramelization process should take about 30 minutes. Once the onions are caramelized, add butter, nutmeg, thyme, bay leaf, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 10 more minutes. Increase heat to high and add wine. Bring to a boil and cook until reduced by half, about 3-5 minutes. Add stock, bring to a simmer and cook for an additional 45 minutes. Remove thyme and bay leaf. Swirl in port, or cognac depending on which flavor you like more. Preheat broiler. Divide soup into 6 ovenproof ramekins or bowls. Top each serving with a slice of bread and ½ cup grated cheese. Place under the broiler until cheese is bubbling, about 3-5 minutes. Garnish with parsley or thyme. Serve hot. If you are making this for two, freeze the remaining broth for future use.

Poached Chicken: Heat chicken stock, white wine, thyme, and salt in a small pot until barely simmering. Add chicken and poach until internal temperature reaches 160°F, about 12 minutes. Set aside to rest until cool enough to handle. Cut into 1-inch cubes. Chicken a la King: Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and sweat for 2-3 minutes. Add mushrooms, bell pepper and sauté for 2-3 minutes until tender. Add frozen peas and cook to warm through. Sprinkle flour over the vegetables and stir constantly for 1-2 minutes to cook off the raw flour taste, trying to avoid browning. Stir in 1 cup of chicken stock, using more as needed to achieve desired consistency. Lightly beat one egg in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of liquid from the pan and whisk with a fork to temper the egg. Repeat twice (3 tablespoons total). Move vegetables to the sides of the pan, allowing the sauce to pool to the center. Slowly drizzle in and whisk tempered egg. Add prepared chicken, along with 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley and heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over white toast or homemade biscuits. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Dice potatoes and immediately place them in a large saucepan, adding enough water to cover by 1 inch. Boil water over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon salt, reduce heat to medium, and simmer. Stir a few times until potatoes are fork tender, about 8 minutes. Drain potatoes and transfer back to the pot. Add vinegar. Using a rubber spatula, toss gently to combine. Let stand for 20 minutes—the potatoes will still be warm. In a medium-sized bowl, gently stir together potatoes, celery, mayonnaise, relish, onion, parsley, mustard, ¾ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, onion powder and chopped eggs. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour before serving. Garnish with more parsley, celery, and onion if desired. photo and recipe from jessicagavin.com

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided Micro-greens, optional Edible flowers, optional

Place all caper tartar sauce ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk together. Set aside. Preheat broiler. Place all crab cake ingredients into a bowl and gently fold together until everything is evenly combined, but do not over mix. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Drop 6 (⅓ cup sized) mounds of crab mixture into the skillet, at least ½-inch apart and cook for about 5 minutes, or until a crust begins to form on the bottom. Remove from heat and place in the oven under the broiler. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the crab cakes have browned on top. Repeat with remaining crab mixture. Serve crab cakes topped with micro-greens and edible flowers, with caper tartar sauce.

Where

SPLENDOR

started

Some of the coolest vintage trends that we still love today.

T he

1950 S High school dances of the 50s were typically informal, schoolchaperoned events. The teens would remove their shoes and dance in their socks to protect the gymnasium floor. Combined with rock ‘n’ roll, the liberating feeling of removing shoes while dancing inspirited teens to shake, jitterbug, rattle and roll giving way to a whole new style of dancing. The famous TV dance show “American Bandstand” featured brisk teenaged dancers showing off their moves.

Just like the sock hop inspired American Bandstand, we still haven’t lost our love for dance shows! So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With the Stars are just a couple of nationwide favorites.

If you wanted a cold, refreshing drink or ice cream back in the 50s, soda fountains were the new answer. Put a jukebox, dance floor and soda fountain in a room with teenagers, and call it a party!

reviewitmagazine.com

/// APRIL 2019

Even though the first drivein theater opened in 1933, it wasn’t until 1950 that the new concept became a smash among both the young and old, as well as lovers and families.

While many of the original driveins were shut down, the trend is coming back around! New driveins have opened, and those that were left standing have been restored. We’ve even got a few close to home!

We still love to socialize! When we’re not throwing a radical theme party, most of us still visit “the soda fountain” without realizing it. Our go-to restaurant, live music spot, and coffee shops all borrow ideas from the original soda fountains.

What better way to show off that you’re dating a jock than to wear his letterman jacket and sweater. Girls of the 50s made this trend their secret weapon to broadcast their prize jock.

The letter motif is still around and has become an integral part of many designer’s aesthetics. Letter sweaters are even making their own comeback.

Arch Oboler’s “Bwana Devil” stirred up the 3D craze of the 50s. It premiered in 1952 and people were provided with glasses that allowed experiencing the whole 3D effect. Sixty years later, 3D movies still get rave reviews. Hit blockbusters are still utilizing 3D technology – because it’s always fun to grab a pair of glasses and have the movie jump out at you!

T he

1960 S Derived from Navy uniforms, bellbottoms were the fashion statement for hippies, and a trademark of the sixties era. Worn by Elvis Presley as well as Sonny and Cher, these widelegged pants became very popular with the younger generations.

The bellbottom has tried to make it back into high fashion a few times in the past, and it’s coming back around again! Get ready to go 60s!

Following the conservative 50s, miniskirts were part of the Women’s Liberation Movement of the 1960s. These short dresses reached their peak of popularity in 1967 when they became a sign of rebellion more than just a sassy fashion statement. “Showing it all” was the new trend and the past demure days went flying out of the door.

The mini skirt is still going strong! A part of most designers’ 2019 collections, you can go ahead and dig out your old favorites.

The British rock group, the Beatles, was a massive hit with kids and teens. Crazed fans would faint at their concerts. Beatlemania was so extreme that some rabid fans would even pass out just from watching them perform on TV!

/// APRIL 2019

The biggest boybands are still often asked about their similarities to The Beatles. The world’s love for these Brits made it cool to love boybands!

Go-go boots were created by the leading French fashion designer Andre Courreges in 1965. They were an instant hit, worn by women at nightclubs all the way from New York to Los Angeles.

Chunky heels and knee-high boots are chic as can be. While you don’t see the two details in the same shoe very often anymore, the trend that started it all can still be seen in the pieces that feature them.

Invented in the mid-60s, lava lamps were definitely a decorative novelty in this already colorful era (and perhaps still are, somewhere in the world). People were fascinated with how this lamp made of an illuminated glass cylinder filled with a colorful, wax-like substance, glowed like lava when heated. Lava lamps surely lit up the 60s!

The lava lamp may be out, but new, fun lamp shapes are still around from neon lamps to beaded shades. The hottest one in 2019? A heart shaped lamp! Information from southtree.com

T he

1970 S

The original design was imported to the US during WWII and gained popularity from the 1950s on. In the 70s, the chairs were just about everywhere, and fit right in with the bohemian hippie aesthetic that was all the rage. The papasan makes its way back into the limelight from time to time. Bohemian designers still love to feature the piece, and you can find updated versions of it in beach homes up and down the coast.

Created in 1975, these fun little rings began as a luxury item! The price point was relatively high for the time period, and the rings were offered in silver and gold. As the trend took off, cheaper versions were made and before long everyone was wearing one! Mood rings are firmly planted in the past, but the higher-quality vintage versions can still be found in high-end consignment shops. They’ve also inspired mood fabrics, a technology brought to life in the 90s and early 2000s based on temperature!

The ultimate music experience through the 1980s, the 8-track changed the way we listen to music. It was created by a group of engineers, scientists, and professionals from Lear Jet Corporation, Ampex, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Motorola, and RCA Victor Records.

The 8-track has been replaced many times over, but the market for old 8-tracks is on the rise! Records are still the go-to for vintage collectors, but more people are seeking out their favorite old 8-tracks for a blast of nostalgia.

This look can be credited back to the 1930s, but it wasn’t until the late 1970s when Yves Saint Laurent made the safari jacket a craze. Another invention of 1975, the pet rock might have been one of the silliest trends, but was also one of the best selling! One and a half million were sold before people realized they were paying four dollars for nothing more than a rock.

While the hottest Christmas items are a little more techsavvy than a rock in a box, Pet Rocks are still a huge pop culture reference. Any throwback show worth its weight mentions them, and we bet you remember your very own pet rock.

A more relaxed version of the traditional safari jacket is a hot ticket item in 2019 – it just goes to show that trends never really go away for good.

1980 S Erno Rubik was looking for a innovative method of teaching his students about 3D objects and came up with what would be called Rubik’s Cube. He patented this clever cube and made millions in the early 80s. There were 43 quintillion combinations of solving the cube, which prompted many books on how to solve the cube. The world record for solving the cube is 16.5 seconds! A later version of the cube was released called “Rubik’s Revenge” which had four rows of four squares instead of three on the standard cube. 100 million cubes have been sold worldwide and are even now somewhat popular in certain places in the world. You can still buy a Rubik’s Cube at the store, and Justin Bieber used to awe fans with his quick cube skills.

Dark blue, light blue, gray, acid, etc. Those denim jackets were the thing to wear in the 80s. Some jackets even had that fluffy white cotton material on the inside to keep you warm in the winter.

In the mid-2000s the acid wash of the 80s came back, but in 2018 the denim jacket fad took off again – this time with patches!

This oversized radio was popular with the youth of the early and mid-eighties because they played music so loud, you could hear them from a 100 yards away. They eventually came with dual cassette and CD players and used 8 “D” cell batteries to power the big speakers. Some had a special Bass Boost button that would make the boom boxes even louder and more annoying to most who could hear them.

Through the 2000s you could get giant boom boxes – some were even equipped with auxillary cables for you to plug your MP3 player into. Now, they’re seen on clothes and bags as a symbol of the 80s.

If you were a kid growing up in the 80s then you remember playing Mario Bros, Tecmo Bowl, Metroid, Castlevania or other popular Nintendo classics at home or with your friends. Most Nintendo users played their video game consoles so much that in order to get the games to start they had to blow into the cartridge and adjust the spring in the console slot.

If you’re a gaming nerd, you might remember that a few years ago the original console was re-released, and Photo: Mironov Konstantin / Shutterstock.com that it sold out immediately! If you didn’t score an original, you can still play all of the best retro games – they’re as popular as ever. Information from crazyfads.com

TIMELESS A very couture investment.

Style

Who doesn’t love a good couture piece? Designer collections are often very emotional for both the designer and the customer. Fashion is art, after all, and art evokes feeling. Aside from making us happy, couture pieces are usually timeless, and almost always make a great investment piece. While you may pack them away for a while, they’ll usually find their way back into your wardrobe. Inheriting a couture piece is just as meaningful because your daughters and granddaughters know that it’s something you chose. If you’re ready to pull the trigger on a few vintage couture pieces, there are a few tricks and tips that can make the hunt a little easier!

top tips to keep in mind

If it’s vintage, it’s probably a little mischievous!

Know Your Measurements

Learn What You Love

See the Details

Sizing has changed throughout the years, and even now can be drastically different from designer to designer. Having your measurements taken by a professional tailor will help you to pull the trigger on that amazing EBay find with confidence!

2 Pick a Price Know what you’re willing to pay before you start shopping (and especially before you start bidding!) to keep you on budget.

It’s hard to collect couture of all types. Narrow your collection down to a specific style, era, or designer that you love. Oftentimes designers will move from couture house to couture house, so you can find your favorite designer under a number of different labels.

5 Think About Repairs

When you’re buying vintage, resellers are a great resource. While the good ones are well-versed in counterfeits, you should be too! Do some research before you buy.

If you have a good tailor, you might be able to get some good deals on pieces that need repair. Talk to your tailor before you buy, though, to make sure that they feel comfortable restoring a couture piece.

TRICKS OF THE TRADE Little tips that make going vintage a little easier.

1. Study makeup looks on a few different faces – it will help you to visualize how colors were blended (or not blended, depending on the era!) together.

2. Try to use tools as similar to the original as possible. If a liner look is super thin, go with a gel liner and a thin brush rather than a pen or pencil type liner.

3. Start with a color palette! Narrow down a look to three main colors and build from there. 4. Never forget: the hair can make the look. If you’re having trouble getting a makeup look just right, try changing up your hairstyle to see if it helps to tie it all together.

5. Skincare first! Makeup will apply more evenly with the right skincare. Double cleanse, tone, moisturize and apply sunblock before you get going.

if fancy shows are your desire, casinos or a younger crowd, keep searching. The included port excursions were wonderful with plenty of history, great buses and excellent commentary.

The dining options are great for a ship with only about 350 passengers. Lunch and dinner in the Marco Polo Dining Room is the most formal and the soups, salads, breads and main courses are excellent.

I think that travelers looking for the all inclusive deal with this ship sailing to so many interesting ports will love the atmosphere. Our cruise included about thirty road scholars and they were Americans while most of

Athena Health Spa offers weights, machines, a sauna and two amazing complimentary bod pods which are steam pods for a unique, very relaxing and healthy daily treat. I tried a variety of the very well-priced spa treatments from deep tissue massages, reflexology to anti-aging facials and was very pleased with the staff. A swimming pool is located on the upper deck and deck chairs are very comfortable and a way to enjoy the fresh air. Two fine lounges offer a place to enjoy lectures, movies, amazing cocktails and fun trivia. Many guests enjoy the library with not only many puzzles, games and books, but also a relaxing way to simply sit and read a book. I cannot emphasize enough the adept destination staff with their color emblazoned

cruise director, probably the best we had ever seen in over 200 cruises. He is genuinely talented, energetic and is able to offer piano and singing shows in the afternoons and evenings. He has a big heart, and is beloved by the guests, as is the rest of the staff. The Shetland Islands are the first port with trips to view and pet the ponies, puffin viewing, and Lerwick, the 17th century settlement with a herring and white fish seaport. The town is most charming and sets the pace for the trip. Next, the four ports in Iceland were our true desire and each had fine views of the many geysers and waterfalls. It was the second time I had visited the Blue Lagoon; an amazing attraction. National Geographic named it one of the top 25 wonders of the world with its warm aquamarine waters, geothermal mineral and silica benefits and ethereal vapors wafting in this lagoon. It has been built up in the last eight years to include a five star resort, restaurant and plenty of places to change and spend the day. Others on the ship explored Iceland’s Golden Circle featuring bubbling mud pools, steaming vents and soaring geysers. The other two ports in Iceland highlighted the sea roots, puffins and many waterfalls from glacier melts. The ship missed the last port due to weather, but it was just whale watching and amazingly we saw them at sea and were rewarded with the addition of Tyne, as our last port. The three lecturers on board gave talks on the birds, ocean and history of the area each day and also old and recent movies were offered in the lounge for further entertainment.

One of the other ports in

Orkney was a superb town and the next day guests were treated to a trip to either Stirling Castle or a visit to the Royal Mile in Edinburgh and tour of Holyrood House, the official residence of Mary Queen of Scots. Tilbury was the pre-and post-port in London with amazing history and only our ship was in port. Any ship has you put your bags outside your door the night before you get off. Can you imagine any other place in the world where as you disembark and your bags are already on a free trolley cart and ready for you to wheel to the chartered bus for a two hour trip to Heathrow? It was a very reasonable cost of only thirty- five dollars per person in a fine bus. Just another example of the way that Voyages to Antiquity cruise line serves their guests in a fine and very generous way.
