Interview with David Cook

We’ve been David Cook fans since his American Idol days (season 7 winner, 2008), so we were stoked to chat with him about the amazingness that’s been his life this year! Let’s just sum it up for you. He released his new EP Chromance, made his Broadway debut in Kinky Boots, and is now getting ready for an acoustic tour starting this month. Phew! So, grab your tickets to see him at The Ridgefield Playhouse on November 7th and Infinity Hall Norfolk on November 11th. Now, on to the interview!

DPZ Dawn’s Pizzazz

Piz·zazz. noun: an attractive combination of vitality and glamour
Thank you, word, for explaining exactly how we felt after our visit to DPZ Dawn’s Pizzazz at their Danbury location! Our vitality was at a max after an Ultimate Myolift facial treatment, a spa mani/pedi, and our glamour was at an all-time high after hair and makeup. Here’s how it went at our blissful afternoon at DPZ Danbury!

Advanced Chiropractic & Wellness – Dr. Yomtov

Have a bad back, will travel for advice! According to statistics a tremendous percentage of us are dealing with back pain (me included; Lora has other issues that we’ll get to in another post…) 😉. Not that back problems alone should bring you to a chiropractor. A good chiropractor treats your entire being as a whole, finds the source of your issues, and sets you on a much “straighter” path to living life to the fullest! Which brings us to Stamford, to meet with the highly recommended, Dr. Yomtov at Advanced Chiropractic & Wellness.

Coco Lily

Coco Lily, where have you been all our lives?? We’re so glad to have discovered this amazing store in Avon, and will stop there anytime we’re in that neck of the woods from now on! It’s like a boutique department store (with women’s and men’s elevated casual clothing, accessories, a kids department, housewares, and gifts) in a renovated, very chic building that was once the Avon library. Allow us to do what we do best…shop + blog!

Good News Restaurant gets a fresh new look!

If you’re a Good News Restaurant groupie (of which there are many) you’re well aware of their recent facelift and makeover. If you haven’t been in a while, get on over there and fall in love with Good News Restaurant (Woodbury) all over again. Carole Peck – the fresh-cuisine queen in these parts – invited us over for a peek and a bite to eat. Be right there, Carole!

Day Tripping in Essex

You’ve been requesting more Day Tripping posts and we’re more than happy to oblige! We love randomly picking a town in CT we want to discover, research, and plan a fun itinerary for the day. It almost always involves baked goods and coffee, some culture, some shopping, scenery, and of course lunch and a cocktail. Essex is our pick today, and what a picturesque town it is located in the Connecticut River Valley. Here are 5 stops you should make when you’re next Day Tripping in Essex!

Dottie’s Provisions

Dottie’s Provisions is everything you could ask for in a bakery and a coffee shop. It’s got the location (in a beautiful cobblestone courtyard in the lovely town of Litchfield), the baked goods (hello famous Dottie’s donuts and more!), the coffee (😍), and the lovely family who uprooted everything to move to Connecticut to run it!

Yep, it’s pretty perfect, and as we’re quickly turning into Unlocking Connecticut Bakeries….here’s our expert synopsis 😉

New York Fashion Week SS19

How we love New York Fashion Week. It’s like the Superbowl of the fashion world, as we like to explain to our hubbies. We always look forward to any event that The Riviere Agency + Fashion Palette put together. We were really excited to attend a group show that included: Bronx & Banco, Elliatt, Saski Collection, Elle Zeitoune, Jagger & Stone, Santina Nicole, Harvey the Label, NNCY, The Blonde Republic, Avery Verse, and Daniel Alexander.

Switching to Sprint with Paul Marcarelli

Does the thought of switching cell phone plans make you break out into a cold sweat? Would you rather do your laundry, weed the garden, and unload the dishwasher, than try to figure out where to begin with swapping carriers? Same here!

Luckily for us, our friend and #1 Sprint customer Paul Marcarelli lives on the way to the Torrington Sprint store. So we stopped by to pick him up and bring him along to assist us with the whole process – with some careful planning, of course, as his filming schedule is pretty crazy with all of those commercials!
