Try as you might, you just can’t make it to that awesome Thursday night farmers market, or, maybe you’re such a ravenous consumer of island-fresh produce that your Thursday night stash can’t quite make it through the weekend. Well, worry no longer, for now there’s a second chance (and who doesn’t love second chances?) to get your good-for-you-greens at the KailuaTown Farmers’ Market on Sundays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Kailua Elementary School.
Brought to you by the same people who run the Haleiwa Farmers’ Market, there’ll be a celebration to kick things off. An oli at 8:50 a.m. starts everything off, with the market opening at 9 a.m. You’ll find over 40 seasoned vendors offering everything from locally caught fish, grass-fed beef, Hawai‘i-grown coffee, island honey, mac nuts, seasonal fruits, herbs, local greens, pa‘i‘ai, flowers, fresh butter and more. If you start to feel a bit peckish pick up some of the ready-to-eat offerings such as smoothies, crepes, pizza and poke; and nosh on it all in the open-air, covered café.
You’ll find more than just shopping. There’ll be entertainment by local musicians Paul Izak & Seeds of Love; you can work it out with Brigitte from Aloha Yoga Kula during an all levels yoga class at 9 a.m. (by donation, bring your own mat or towel); and Dr. Patricia Bragg of the Bragg’s Institute (sponsor of the KailuaTown Farmers’ Market) will speak about nutrition at 11 a.m.

Do you feel as if the pressures of life are getting to be too much? Give yourself a well-deserved timeout this Sunday, February 24, from 4 to 6 p.m. for a free lecture by Dr. Shanhong Lu, MD, PhD on anti aging and regenerative medicine.
Dr. Lu is certified in internal medicine, as well as anti-aging and regenerative medicine. In her lecture, Dr. Lu will highlight how the toxicity in our modern world can cause us to suffer from increased stress to the body, resulting in fatigue and premature aging. She will then discuss some of the missing pieces in nutritional supplementation and detoxification.
The lecture will be held at Mindful Matters in the Kailua Medical Arts Building. RSVP to Michael Hastert via text at (714) 654-8727 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Retail therapy is about to get a boost. SkinHappy MediSpa is set to open its doors on the second floor of Kai Boutique.
Join them for the grand opening 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, February 5. Guests can enjoy pupu and champagne as well as mini-facial and skin product demos. Don’t forget to enter to win one of nine free facials worth $140 each.
SkinHappy MediSpa focuses on two of the most common skin issues: acne and facial pigmentation. The new location is an extension of the Kenner Dermatology Center (KDC) that’s located in the Castle Medical Center. KDC—owned by Dr. Julie Kenner, a board-certified dermatologist—is one of the most state-of-the-art dermatology facilities in Hawai‘i.
“I wanted to open SkinHappy MediSpa to supplement medical therapies for acne, speed along the healing process and to potentially provide an aesthetic alternative to oral anti-acne medications,” says Dr. Kenner. “Approximately 80 percent of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 suffer from acne, with many continuing to have acne into their 40s and beyond. These facial blemishes often negatively impact an individual’s self-confidence and sometimes his or her social and career choices.”
SkinHappy MediSpa offers medical facials, facial waxing and free facial consultations. While Dr. Kenner is quick to point out that not all skin issues can be treated with a facial, this medical’s spa focus on scientifically based skin care aims to provide more than just pampering with its results-based treatments.
