Is Blood The Fountain of Youth? Hmmmm?

According to a company Selphyl, it is, sort of with a little help from your doctor. Selphyl has developed a new treatment for wrinkles, scars, and general skin impressions using your own blood. Results last up to a year and a half and there have been no reports of allergic reactions because the treatment magic formula comes from your own body. In particular, it is used to treat acne scars and damaged areas around knees and ankles using PRP- platelet rich plasma technology which has been around at least a decade. The results are evident immediately, but continue to enhance over a three week period. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and the Dr. draws a small amount of your own blood and separates the platelets from the fibrin, then places them into a concentrate known as the matrix. This is then injected into skin impressions, acne scars, wrinkles, and folds. Results last up to a year and a half!
The treatment is FDA approved and currently available. For more information, visit

Tennessee Trouble Visits Tinsel Town

Andi and The Hookah

We Aren’t In Tennessee Anymore

So, what does one do when visiting Los Angeles? Well, for Andrea Smith, a lot! I thought you guys might enjoy a few videos and new little “Haute” spots we found along the way! Enjoy!

“How To Hookah”

“Haute Heist”

“Hotel Cafe” Sunday Night Special

Andrea and I can’t go too long without hearing some live music, and since Andi’s from “Music City,” it was only proper for me to show her what Los Angeles has to offer in comparison. Sundays at The Hotel Cafe is anything but boring. It feels like Saturday night there every night. They host a Writers’ Night, which is seemingly different from the Nashville Writers’ Nights, but still cool. Here are some of the artist we got to listen to live, and highly recommend!
