Brush Calligraphy Workshop

 Between Paint Nite Parties and Adult Coloring Books, it's clear that artistic expression is an outlet for lots of women.  I started following these calligraphy accounts on Instagram recently.  More than I care to admit. I watch the videos and find them soothing to watch

Sizing Up Sophie Kinsella in 10 Minutes

When Random House asked me to promote the Sophie Kinsella event at Barnes and Noble last week, they offered me the opportunity to have a 10 minute interview with Sophie herself.  Since I had just come up with the idea for interviewing our favorite Westchester

Westchester Woman Wednesday: Meet Cassandra Caruso

Last month, Shawna and I had one of our working breakfast meetings and we had a list of people we wanted to get together with in the new year.  Some that we have worked with for years, others we've met in the past couple of

Upcoming Events for Women in Westchester

When Shawna and I redesigned our site late last year, we decided to narrow our topics into three main categories.  Our new site is keeping us more focused and we are happy to post within the following three topics-- eat, shop and play.   Most

Sophie Kinsella Comes to Westchester

I'm so Westchester.  A 30-minute express train could get me into Grand Central with ease, but it seems like such a hassle to go into the city for things.  Plus, I like my car.  The traffic is a headache and the parking is worse.  So

Balducci’s in Scarsdale; Rye Brook Next

My husband is a very modern, forward-thinking guy.  If I had to pick one way that he's traditional (or let's say old-school) it would be in his appetite. He likes a nice dinner when he comes home.  Breakfast is usually on the go each morning

Sweet Treats

One of our main categories is called "eat."   Shawna is the restaurant-goer out of the two of us as she has a far more sophisticated palate than I do.  I have a total of about 25 food items that I eat in restaurants and

Trunk Shows at LOLA in White Plains

It's no secret that I love LOLA.  Since I discovered this boutique years ago, even before the opening on Mamaroneck Avenue, it was my go-to place for fashion finds and gift items. What I have noticed about LOLA over the years, is that they always

Custom Gifts at Wyatt Lily

My kids are now 10 and 6.   When they were babies, I spent many hours (and dollars) shopping at a trendy kids boutique in the Scarsdale Village which is now Wyatt Lily.   It was great then, but even better now.  It's usually my first stop

LuLaRoe Leggings

I didn't want to like LuLaRoe leggings.   I first saw them over the summer when a Facebook friend hosted an online Pop Up Party one night from 8-9pm, but curiosity got to me and I had to see what they were all about. Lots of

Solar Panels for Your Home

Just over two years ago, I had solar panels installed on my home. I've heard the same question from dozens of friends and neighbors over the past six months.   "If they're so great, why isn't everyone getting them?"   For that question, I have a few answers:

HOLIDAY SHOPFEST

This post needs very little text to accompany it.  If you want to shop for everyone on your list, you can do it at Melissa and Sarah's Holiday Shopfest on Monday, 12/5 in White Plains.   They've lined up amazing vendors and you're sure to

MY TOP 5 GO-TO GIFTS FOR BABIES

When I had my first baby in 2006 I was amazed at how many people gave me gifts.  I had a baby shower prior to my daughter’s arrival and received all of the basics;  the car seat, infant seat, exersaucer, high chair, playpen and other
