The Health & Beauty Issue 2017
January 11, 2017
Health, wellness, fitness, travel, and beauty come together in VIE’s first-ever Health & Beauty Issue
Happy New Year! We’re celebrating a step into the future and VIE’s first issue of the year, Health and Beauty, encapsulating a variety of stories full of heart and soul—and of course some glam, too. Since this is a new theme to VIE’s editorial lineup, we took to the worlds of beauty and health for inspiration as we compiled its content. Engaging with experts in the fields of fitness, antiaging, vitality, hair and makeup, and overall wellness and happiness brought together what we feel is an immersive new issue with something for everyone. College student Stephanie Shaia shares her journey of living with multiple sclerosis from a young age; author John Thorndike recounts his year of caring for his father with Alzheimer’s; professor Nicholas Racheotes gives a new take on “seeing” the beauty in the world around you; and various storytellers and beauty insiders show how the multibillion-dollar health and fitness industries aren’t just fads, they can truly bring about change and improvement in life.

Hairstylist and model Brooke Miller radiates grace and positivity. With her outgoing personality, Miller tends to bring a smile to those around her, and we have enjoyed working with her on many photo shoots over the past several years. See Miller’s handiwork in the “Easy, Breezy Resort Updo” how-to piece, and read about the true meaning of recognizing the beauty in everything with our feature, “Going Acoustic.” Miller’s angelic image was captured in sunny Pensacola, Florida, by portrait enthusiast Sohail Chouhan.
