Malvern, PA – "We all know that wonderful feeling of satisfaction when we see our seasonal tables laden with delicious food," says Pete Hoover, president of Hoover Financial Advisors, P.C.

Do You Suffer From iPosture?

iposturebeachBy Dr. Lauren Schofield, Owner, Advanced Chiropratic Wellness Center

Stop. Freeze. Now, take notice of your posture. Next, observe the posture of your friends and family around you. Did you just shift in your seat and sit up straight?

The popularity of smartphones and tablets are causing a back pain epidemic for us, but especially for our children and young adults. The disorder has become so prevalent that a new term has arisen. "iPosture" is being used to define pain in the spine caused by a 'stooped body shape" or poor posture used while operating tablets, smartphones or laptops.

An alarming statistic recently hit the medical journals, finding 84% of the 18-24 year-olds admit to suffering from back pain in the last year. What is even more disturbing? This age group now loses more working days due to back pain than their parent's generation.

I Never Thought Summer Camp Could Be So Transformative For My Daughter

IndyandMattMy 10-year-old won the "Drama Queen" award at her nursery school graduation. Since that fateful day, a theatrical vein has seemed to run through all situations in her life including, but certainly not limited to: singing around the house from sun up to sundown, performing short skits for friends and family and, most recently, making movies on her iPad staring, you guessed it, her.

We recently hit a few road bumps when she auditioned for her first school musical. She was incredibly ambitious, telling us, "I definitely want the lead, but I'm going to memorize all the parts, just in case." Well, unfortunately, my "Little Bird" was dealt her first industry blow when she was assigned a spot in the chorus.

Plato's Closet Exton: "Pay it Forward, Pay it Back"

platosclosetstorefrontExton, PA - Plato's Closet celebrated their fifth anniversary in November and their impact on the community in that short amount of time is more than most people realize. Plato's Closet does more than provide quality clothing at great prices. The store supports a multitude of local charities.

"When clothes are brought in that we take a pass on, we can accept them as donations for local charities. We often donate clearance items that didn't sell as well," Carol Topolski, proprietor tells us.

A large area of their backroom is set aside for these donations. In past years, our clearance items have been donated as far away as Africa. More recently we've partnered with charities closer to home. Click the Read More button for more info and to learn how you can WIN a $200 Gift Card this weekend!

West Chester Studio for the Performing Arts Summer Camp: My 10-Year-Old’s Perspective

GroupOnStageScaledIf you read the first article of our 6-part summer series on the West Chester Studio for the Performing Arts, you would know that I was absolutely thrilled to find a top-notch theatre camp for my 10-year-old right in West Chester. I was so amped that I signed up "Little Bird", as I call her, for basically the entire summer. The camp is run by an incredible cast of instructors who bring an enormous amount of talent and experience to each week's theatrical theme. Little Bird's inaugural week, "Glee Week", was a huge success and I couldn't wipe the smile off her face all week. Score for mom! I was a little nervous for the second week, "Theatrical Production Jr." because the kids would be performing a play instead of a musical and I wouldn't have been surprised if she sang all of her lines and turned it into a musical. Click the Read More button below to read her journal entries for the week and see if I scored another mom point...and learn how to win a prize worth $350!!!
