New Seattleites here to make essensuals London synonymous with affordable luxury “Hair follows fashion and Seattle is a fashionable city,” say the owners of essensuals London, Capitol Hill’s newest boutique hair salon. “Seattle’s massive music scene is a major contributor to Seattle’s fashion.

Blame it on being a first-time working nursing mom, I guess, since doesn’t seem to be a shortage of Pure Barre locations across western Washington, that’s for sure.   And now, my everyone’s favorite ballet-based total body workout is creeping even further westward with dynamic duo Sami and Brandon Sweeney’s fifth location in four years coming to Green Lake–the Sweeney’s own ‘hood.

Seattleite Spotlight: Former Peace Corps Volunteer Ann Lounsbery Owens
The longtime Seattle resident’s memories of the JFK assassination will be included in a new TLC documentary. In 1962, Ann Lounsbery embarked on the adventure of a lifetime. Inspired by President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address, the 24-year-old teacher accepted an offer to serve as a Peace Corps volunteer in the East African nation of Ethiopia.
