Jasmin-and-Al-Fall-2019Happy fall! This is an amazing time of year in central Ohio. The crisp air and changing leaves give us much to be thankful for. Being outside this season gives us an opportunity to wrap up in a scarf and enjoy something warm. Our 2020 continues to present us with changes and challenges. This issue is filled with articles featuring inspirational leaders, self-care, things to do in our city, and ways we can look and feel better.

Being inspired by leaders in our community is always cause for celebration. In our fall issue, we highlight two women who are leaders in the banking industry. Francie Henry, President of Fifth Third Central Ohio and Sue Zazon, President of Huntington Bank Central Ohio, both lead in their roles as bank presidents and in our community. They have risen through the ranks in the industry and have earned every ounce of respect they get. Their commitment doesn’t stop there. They both excel in making our community a better place to live.

Fall fashion is always a favorite in the fashion industry and for us at Buckeye Lifestyle magazine. Taking a look around our community we were drawn to the unique spaces located in the heart of Columbus. We took to the streets to feature this season’s trends. You will find animal prints, camo and tie dye, comfortable cardigans and cozy jackets just in time for the fall weather. The colors of fall are well represented in this season’s fashion. Look for wine, camel, olive, and shades of blue and gray.

October is breast cancer awareness month. We are taking a look into how important early detection is and ways in which you can advocate for yourself. Maria Durant, ABC-6/Fox 28, shares with us her journey through her second round of breast cancer and how she credits early detection to her surviving and thriving.

kelly-fall-2020Many of us continue to spend a great deal of time at home. We have two articles that will help to make your space work better for you. In “The Importance of the Family Table,” we see how this space has been transformed into a place, not only for meals, but for homework, Zoom calls, arts and crafts, and so much more. We are also taking a look at how important it is to have a special place to escape life and be in an environment that calms the soul. “Creating YOU Space” will show you how any space in your home can become something different.

Take a journey through the streets of the Short North Art District to explore the art trail. This adventure is a scavenger hunt navigating past many of Columbus’ most creative, colorful works of art.

Self-love isn’t something that comes easy to many people. It is something that we need care for to help grow. Learn how there are four roots of significant importance that grow from your seed and nurturing and maintaining them is key to optimal living.

The women in our community continue to impress us. In this issue, we take a look at how Betsy Bankhurst, President of The Basement Doctor, grew up in the business and is more than ready to see it succeed to the next level. She is even putting a new face on a familiar brand.

Dining out has taken on a new meaning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people are opting to eat at home and take out has become a popular go-to. We have checked out some of the area’s best places to grab your delivery and stay healthy.

Our hope is that we can help inspire you to grow, try new things and enjoy how our city and its people come together to make our community one of the best there is. Enjoy the fall issue of Buckeye Lifestyle magazine and, as always, thank you for being a part of our family.
