Originally from the Springfield, Ill., area, Alex and Meghan Haycraft moved to St. Louis in 2011 looking for a home that would give them a taste of the outdoors, while still offering a convenient location. They found it in their craftsman home in Manchester, where they frequently welcome Alex’s 4-year-old son, Myles. Alex, a web developer at Soft Surroundings who plays in the band Park, and Meghan, a scientific IT customer advocate at Monsanto, also are raising two dogs, Dexter and Felix. We asked Meghan about the neighborhood highlights.
Vincent Longo was born in Australia to Italian parents and later moved to the Italian Riviera and finally, to New York City. The makeup artist has worked with legendary models, including the likes of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum; and his work has graced the covers of both national and international beauty magazines. He has since launched his own eponymous makeup line. LN caught up with him recently when he visited St. Louis to debut the line at Soft Surroundings.

It’s no surprise that the face gets all the attention in the fight against fine lines and wrinkles. But don’t ignore some of the most-telling signs of aging skin: the hands and the décolleté. These areas require extra-special attention, too--unless you’re really into gloves and turtlenecks.
Julie Macklowe, a former Vogue magazine ‘It Girl,’ was a hedge fund manager for 12 years before she broke into the beauty industry. With experience managing more than $500 million in investments, she launched her company with an exclusive partnership at Bergdorf Goodman, but soon learned that she could offer better prices—without changing her products—if she moved to other retailers. The products are now offered at Soft Surroundings, where LN caught up with Macklowe on a recent stopover in St. Louis.

OSEA founder and ‘chief seaweed officer’ Jenefer Palmer comes from a long line of healers. In fact, her grandmother was one of the first female chiropractors in the world, who always told her granddaughter, Always read the label. She took the advice to heart when working as spa director at Murrieta Hot Springs, which at the time was a premier holistic destination spa. But what she found came as a surprise: Many of the most expensive products used inexpensive and sometimes dangerous synthetic ingredients. Palmer now uses 100 percent natural marine-based organic ingredients in her products, which are carried at luxury spas around the world. We caught up with her on a recent visit to Soft Surroundings, St. Louis’ exclusive provider of OSEA products.
