These beautiful 65-70 degree days that have filled our weeks prior to “spring” have brightened up the skies and the moods of everyone around. It came a bit sooner than expected….but much to my delight. Well, except when I threw on my spring sandals and peeked at my winter toes. Something had to be done […] [Read More]

Have you ever driven down a street that you’ve been on hundreds of times only to look over and see a house you’ve never seen before?? That’s how I feel about the store True Blue on Elm Street in New Canaan. I’ve had many a mocha at Starbucks across the street; a couple of cones […] [Read More]

Couture and ready-to-wear designers and their staff work for months prior to each new season’s collection to pull off the perfect performance on the runway.

Up on Main Street

on
I popped into Benefit on Friday with my good friend’s daughter to peek at some new lip glosses. While there, the staff was buzzing about their recent trip to a new local store, Caren Forbes. Comments such as, ” Oh my gosh, I just got the best earrings!” “That bag was so great I wanted […] [Read More]
