            The Art of Outdoor Cooking
There is nothing quite like the satisfaction that comes from cooking the perfect, tender-on-the-
inside, charred-on-the-outside cut of meat or crunchy, roasted vegetables, with flawless grilling
  marks. With the right tools and tips, becoming a master of the grill can be effortless and fun.

One common misconception that could mean the difference between a mouth-watering steak and a
hockey puck, is that barbecuing and grilling are one and the same. In fact, they are separate and distinct
techniques; barbecuing involves cooking food slowly over indirect heat, while grilling is a quicker
method that uses high heat but is still normally done on a barbecue grill.                                        WestJet market Chef, michael Cripps

EvelineCharles Beauty MD offers a modern,
intelligent approach to beauty.

Beauty MD believes in prolonging your youth and aging gracefully.
Beauty MD treatments should be embraced by women of all ages.
While baby boomers had little choice but to age and then consider
anti-aging treatments; younger women can take preventative measures
to stay youthful. As women in their 20s and 30s age, 60 will become
the new 40 as available treatments will prolong the aging process. For
women in their 50s and 60s, there is hope. Today’s cosmetic treatments
and procedures are very advanced and results-driven. For a customized
approach, meet with an EvelineCharles Beauty MD Image Consultant.

PROTECT: Ageless Beauty in Your 20s
Protect yourself from premature aging. Injectables like Restylane offer
younger patients a way to plump up lips and add volume to cheeks

shaving and waxing ahead of you, why not invest in a more permanent,
hassle-free approach to hair removal.

PREVENT: Ageless Beauty in Your 30s/40s
During your 30s, your skin becomes drier, thinner and wrinkles may
start to appear around your eyes and mouth. Injectables and fillers such
as BOTOX and dermal fillers combat the early signs of aging by filling
in wrinkles, or plumping up lips and cheeks. Continually revealing your
