It's only fair to share...
This month’s Westchester Woman Wednesday is Nicole Steinthal. She’s a lifestyle blogger as well and she’s got one foot in Westchester and one foot in Greenwich. She’s a supermom to her college-aged son, TJ and two daughters, Daisy and Peyton. She posts on her blog daily and covers topics related to fashion, dining, entertaining. Her blog is called NS Lifestyles and while it is kind of like our “eat/shop/play” posts, it’s another level! She posts recipes that she uses, gives her rundown of recommendations at HomeGoods and organizes group outings of 40-50 people to Broadway shows monthly. I will include some favorite posts below.

When I was thinking about how to properly interview Nicole, I thought, let’s keep this totally natural. When scrolling through my recent texts, I realized how we go back and forth. One day recently, I had a car maintenance appointment in Greenwich so I texted her asking her. “In Greenwich. Good salad?” and she answered back with a suggestion immediately. The best was the day at my son’s school book fair when I snuck a pic on my phone of a woman’s purse that I admired. I did not have the nerve to ask her what brand it was. “Excuse me, I’ve never spoken to you. What brand is your bag?” So I snuck a pic sent it to Nicole and within minutes, she replied with links on where to buy the bag!! Our text chains are so random and while we might not talk or see each other frequently, we pick up where we leave off each timer we do meet up in person. So her interview is basically her list of favorites, tried and true or what I would call her personal Rolodex for just about anything you could ever want or need!!
Nicole is proof that even when you have older kids, there are always things going on and she’s the kind of person that everyone knows and stops to say hello to! Each time I’ve met Nicole for lunch in Rye, she seems to know just about everyone– which brings me to how we met, and that’s through Instagram. We found each other because we were always liking the same things and commenting on the same pictures so the conversation started and we’ve been friends ever since.
In Nicole’s voice from here on:
