The man and the shoe that became synonymous with Carrie Bradshaw and Sex and the City. For a sneak peek at the collection and how to RSVP click here for more at SarasotaMagazine.com
Ever since I began taking Pure Barre classes, I’ve been on a search for the perfect sock. It can’t be too thick ’cause I’m hot enough already during the workout. Adding what feels like fuzzy warm winter slippers elevates my temp and becomes a total distraction–I can’t stay focused. But I also need those grippy nubs on the sole for extra traction.
I got lucky while scouring the Internet–I stumbled on Shashi Cool Feet Socks. They are just the right thin-ness, with traction, and they are completely chic. Of course, they were created by a woman who spent nearly two decades doing Pilates and who knew we need a good sock for a workout. As with all clever inventions, Natalie Lerch Sudit used her experience to develop a sock that performs in a studio environment while still maintaining an element of style.//Click Here for more @SarasotaMagazine.com
There’s no argument that Trish McEvoy is one of the most esteemed names in the world of beauty. She’s changed the face of beauty from her convenient Makeup Planner to fragrances to skin care system. The celebrated expert, who founded her eponymous line, became widely known for teaching The Power of Makeup, which empowered women to take control of their own beauty with her revolutionary system and techniques. // Click here for my Q&A with Trish McEvoy and info on a virtual makeup class, Nov. 18, with the woman herself…
No doubt you’ve noticed that there’s a wonderful world movement, or rather a consciousness, about being environmentally aware from the kitchen to the closet. MOVMT Co-founder Mark Wystrach and partner Kevin Flanagan have made it their mission to “create stylish eco-conscious footwear and accessories that stand for the fight against single-use plastics.” Their cool kicks are created of organic materials and up-cycled plastic bags cleaned from Bali and California. And, they’re catching on, so much so that these guys just might heel the world.//Click Here for More @SarasotaMagazine.com
This is my favorite, favorite time of year — I just love all the holiday scents of cinnamon and spices. And, I’m crazy for anything pumpkin flavored including ice cream. So, this year I set out to find a healthy version. OK, OK, it’s not raw but we discussed that early on…I’m basically raw-ish. But, if you’re a Paleo fan…this qualifies! //Click here for the recipe at SarasotaMagazine.com
I know I don’t have to ask if you like a stylish deal on fashion. So, get ready, Nordstrom Rack just set up a 35,000 square foot shop and yours truly got a sneak peek on Tuesday night.
