PageD2 Saturday,May24,2014 Asbury Park Press APP.COM TODAY’S ANSWERS WORD SLEUTH JUMBLE TODAY’S CRYPTOQUOTE SUDOKU FAMILY TIME CROSSWORD indulge One day while lying on the beaches of North Carolina, an idea came to Emily Dell of Linden. Runaway, a mobile fashion boutique created by Dell, launched two years later. Its first official premiere was at last weekend’s Jersey Shore Festival in Seaside Heights. “There was one other truck like this in Boston (and Ithought) it would be such a great concept for New Jersey,” Dell says of the idea. The boutique showcases current apparel and accessory trends — neon, floral, monochromatic, muted c olors and more — all in a 28-foot box truck, Dell explains. Apparel costs between $20 and $60, and accessories — bracelets, necklaces and earrings — cost between $8 and $30. The merchandise is sourced from New York City showrooms as well as independent designers, and Runaway’s own curated line Heist, which is vintage costume jewelry. R unaway also provides personal styling and at- home fashion parties. Customers can send Dell their s tyle preferences and sizes, so the selection will be a c urated collection when it arrives at their front door, s he explains, adding a one-week notice is preferred. “I’m trying to offer the full experience of fashion,” says Dell. “I’ll work with you ... to help make personal styling affordable for the everyday woman.” S he also has hopes to be on-hand at a variety of sa- l ons, corporations, nonprofit organizations and local c olleges — a partnership New Jersey doesn’t really have, she explains. “We’ll also be working with individuals for their at- home parties ... and we’re looking to partner with diff erent salons, places like Hand and Stone or Massage E nvy,” Dell says. “There’s a real need to have women d o something while they’re in the waiting area.” Her first event was well-received by attendees, Dell says. This weekend, Runaway and Dell will be at the Bradley Beach Memorial Day Weekend Festival at 10 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the board- w alk. T he Runaway truck is air conditioned, has lighting a nd is self-powered, says Dell, adding her inventory is constantly rotating. “The industrial chic interior features lights, faux wood floor that makes shoppers feel as if they are in a b rick and mortar environment,” Dell says.

COURTESY OF EMILY DELL RUNAWAY MOBILE FASHION BOUTIQUE WHEN: 10 a.m. May 24 to 26 WHERE: Bradley Beach Memorial Day Weekend Festival on the boardwalk I NFORMATION: 732-589-0857 or Chasing trends Mobile fashion boutique h its brakes in Bradley Beach By Gina Columbus @ginacolumbusapp Sandalwood reminds Palisi of freshly blooming fields. Lavender, vanilla and chamomile have calming effects, while peppermint and citrus notes can be energizing. And lemon, mango, coconut and papaya scents brings you to summer in the iciest of winters. “Visually, you see what you want to see and you can block other things out,” Palisi says. “But you don’t have to be anywhere to be transported by a scent. Whatever you’re burning will bring you to that scent — you can just close your eyes and go.” H er Limoncello and Hawaiian Islander candles are v ery reminiscent of the summertime, she explains. The Ocean Breeze candle is a clean scent Palisi describes as “you’re on the beach, it’s 6 a.m. and no one’s out yet. It’s just very uplifting; summer’s a very uplifting time. Everyone’s happy, everyone’s outside.” Her Into the Woods fragrance is a more masculine but popular scent — resembling the wooden strips of a cedar canoe. The Yankee Candle collection The Yankee Candle Company is said to be the w orld’s largest manufacturer of premium scented c andles. New fragrances for summer are Margarita T ime, Coconut and Vanilla Bean, Cinnamon Vanilla and Sea Coral. Part of their limited edition “Fiesta” collection features Pineapple and Red Berry Sangria, Caramelized Sugar and Coconut Lime. There are plenty of Yankee Candle staple scents that whisk consumers away to some of their most beloved childhood memories. One sniff, and you rewind to growing up in those glorious, yet hazy, summer days. The company gives descriptions below. SUMMER SCOOP: “Delicious memories of creamy, homemade strawberry ice cream on a summer day.” TREEHOUSE MEMORIES: “Warm, earthy woods w rapped in sweet, familiar spices evoke memories of crisp autumn days spent amongst the changing leaves.” ORANGE DREAMSICLE: “A favorite childhood summer treat you never outgrow ... a cool blend of orange and vanilla ice cream.” SUMMER WISH: “A warm breeze of soft flowers and f resh green fields captures the sweet innocence of childhood summer days playing in the backyard.” D epending on size, prices range from $2 to $ 28.Yankee Candle products can be purchased online a t www.yankeecandle.comand at various retailers. Ultimate Luxury Candle Gift by Welcome Home Candles This candle, reportedly the world’s most expen- s ive, comes with quite the accessory — a diamond bow n ecklace with 3 8 brilliant dia- m onds. It encompasses luxury at its finest with Champagne, candles a nd diamonds, W elcome Home C andles explains. THE SCENT: Champagne Noir Soy PRICE: $6,495 WHERE TO BUY: Le Printemps by L’Artisan After a dreary winter, this might be just the herbal aroma to awaken the senses. “ The sun once more begins to warm the earth, and a gentle balmy wind blows, bringing with it the fra- g rance of a new season,” L’Artisan states online. “This ... illustrates the relaxed way of life in Provence, France, bringing the authentic nature of the region into your home.” SCENTS: Rosemary, star anise, thyme, lentisk PRICE: $340 WHERE TO BUY: WEARING IT WELL Perfumes can also ignite the transport-like feeling, similar to candles, Palisi explains. “ I’ve been wearing vanilla for 17 years,” Palisi says. “ Every time I walk in somewhere, they (people) know it’s me. It’s an identifier for people and what they w ear.” So don’t just smell the scent — wear it. The Bath and Body Works collection The fragrance company — though it sells an abundance of candles — has a lengthy variety of fragrances in perfume, body mist, lotion and shower gel forms. Its latest summer collection is filled with invigorating, yet relaxing, seasonal scents.
