We have been on a shopping high all day! We’re a little afraid of how much joy shoe shopping brings us, but we’re not going to question it too deeply. I think we all know that “finding the perfect shoe” rush. Well, we just experienced it times 7, yes SEVEN pairs of new shoes between us. Lora – 4 (and one bracelet), Bev – 3. When we came across Lily (Old Greenwich) in Instagram-land, we really struck shoe-gold.
We love it when we’re invited to new fitness studios for a personal training session, don’t we Lora? [Lora’s note: Yes, yes we do – and then we get lunch!]. We especially love it when we get to check out a really exciting new concept in fitness studios. While getting a tough, well-rounded workout from top personal trainer Josh Davis, we chatted with Gina Salese Cortese about the business she and her husband Paul Cortese have recently opened! This post will appeal to trainers and trainees alike. Check out in forma fitness located at 175 West Putnam Avenue, Greenwich.

We do so love a great entrepreneurial success story. Especially when the story involves two inspiring and ingenious women and shoes. Monica Ferguson (Greenwich native) and Becca Brown are the founders of Solemates – a company that came up with a way to save our high heels!
Ever had that daydream of inventing some kind of lifehack “thing”? “I’m going to make and sell this “thing” that nobody else has thought of yet.” Usually followed by, “I’ll have my own company selling this “thing” and I’ll be wildly successful!” Well, friends and co-founders Monica and Becca acted on that dream and started their own company, Solemates. They also charmed the judges on Shark Tank with their invention, the “High Heeler.”
