Hi, this is us, reporting back from our awesome day at this year’s Business Women’s Forum! It’s the largest, longest-running full-day annual conference for women in Connecticut. This was our 2nd year attending, and we’re hooked.
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!
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!!
Friends for years on Instagram, and fans forever (we’ve watched every episode of What Not to Wear), we were ridiculously happy when Clinton Kelly agreed to have us over to his Litchfield Hills home for a cocktail exchange. Basically, we each make our favorite cocktail recipes, then we chat! It’s our new favorite interview style. 😉

To please our eyes and fill our soul, we recently visited Kent Barns’ art district. We perused 6 uniquely diverse art galleries covering everything from the avant-garde to classic and showing artists who are household names to the up-and-coming. All of it can be found within one beautiful block. Forget Chelsea, a world of friendly fine art is right here at Kent Barns!
Hollister House Garden in Washington reminds us of a classic English country garden. We spent a delightful morning touring the property with owner George Schoellkopf. What an inspirational realm for artists, photographers, and bloggers!
