This Old House 2019 Idea House Tour

We had no idea what to expect when we were invited to a sneak preview of the 2019 This Old House Idea House in New Canaan. Afterward, our drive home was filled with excited talk of doorstops, aromatherapy showers, wallpaper, and who knew you could fall in love with a bathroom sink? To say we were inspired would be an understatement. #House #Renovation #Goals!

Kimberley Locke on Doctor & the Diva

Kimberley Locke is the diva on DABL’s new show Doctor & the Diva. She’s also our friend, so we had her over to Lora’s house to eat good food (thanks Kimberley and Lora’s hubby Michael), drink wine, and chat. We asked what it means to be a diva, about the journey to getting her own show, what a day on the set looks like, and more!

Get ready for the Business Women’s Forum!

Women of Connecticut, mark your calendars! The Business Women’s Forum will be hosting their 37th annual full-day conference on October 29th at the Aqua Turf in Plantsville (a nice central spot for us all to get to!).

We went last year and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Motivational speeches, networking with fellow wonder-women, workshops, lunch…what’s not to love?! We can’t wait to go this year for all of that, plus this year’s keynote speaker Stacy London!!
