It’s time to head outdoors


When summertime rolls around, the lakes area comes alive and what better way to celebrate the outdoors than camping! In this issue, we have you covered with recipes for the campfire, fun family events and games and even some tips for watching fireworks.

Try our suggestions for enjoying a glass of wine outdoors, or even a non-alcoholic drink with our Summer Bluesberry Punch. Check out our tips for making the most of your grill or changing the color of your front door to spruce up your home.

And don’t forget about your health. Heading outside in the summer can give your attitude a boost, but don’t forget about sun and mosquito protection. We have some interesting information on staying safe from both sunburn and West Nile virus.

And, of course, we have your usual favorites in this issue – Real Chicz of Douglas County, a Guyz Perspective, He Sez … She Sez, and some great book suggestions.

So grab this latest edition of Chicz and head outside to enjoy all that this summer has to offer!

    Where can you pick up the magazine? The map won’t load on my phone and I don’t have access to a computer. I’m usually in the northern Alexandria and Brandon areas

    I have tried the Pumpkin crunch cake and enjoyed it much, so quick to do.

    I also tried the pumpkin pie and it is great especially the topping. All your articles are timely and useful as well as interesting. Phyllis Tucker, Alex
