An Interview with Markus Bender of Nordic Beach

It is a pleasure to introduce my readers to Nordic Beach, a company based in Southern California that has created a cozy, super-soft wrap jacket that can be worn year round. Their jackets currently come in three colors: Fluffy Gray, Fluffy Black, and Fluffy Frappe. These are perfect to wear everywhere: shopping, sporting events, yoga, work, a ski trip, the mountains, or anywhere you want to be comfy and cozy!

I love my Nordic Beach jacket so much! I will be wearing mine to the Hamptons International Film Festival this autumn, out to the park with my children, to the beach, and out shopping. The jacket is especially ideal for postpartum moms. When my son is born, the jacket will help protect him from the wind and the elements as I will be ‘wearing him’ as I am out and about.

The East Hampton Aviation Association hosts “Just Plane Fun Day”

On Saturday, September 9 from 10am-3pm, the East Hampton Aviation Association hosted a “Just Plane Fun Day” at the East Hampton Airport in Wainscott. This family friendly event was well attended and attracted aviation enthusiasts, animal lovers, and families of all ages who enjoyed a beautiful, sunny day while exploring notable aircraft that span from across decades. Upon entry, there was a suggested $5 donation to the Aviation Association per family as well as raffle tickets sold. Raffle entrants had the opportunity to win aviation-related prizes, including local sightseeing flights offered by several of our local pilots.

The day featured classic and unique aircraft, vintage warbirds, military flybys and demos as well as food from gourmet food trucks including: Noah’s on the Road, Fry Daddy, and Blondies Bake Shop. A concurrent vintage car show was also held which included models from the 1920’s through the 1990’s. Gimme Shelter Animal Rescue was also at the airport with adorable, playful puppies up for adoption. It was so much fun to be able to see the aircraft up close! We took our photos in front of several aircraft models and had the opportunity to meet the owner of a select few. We even saw one aircraft up for sale.

Nourishment for the Body

My beauty regiment each morning and evening has always been simple. However, the key to a smart beauty regiment is using products that nourish and hydrate the body. Rather than hide impurities, I try to embrace feeling my best and enhancing these feelings throughout my day. I love island-inspired scents, scrubs, and vegan-friendly products especially made with simple, high quality ingredients. Below you will discover five products I recently discovered that are all about pure nourishment for the body.  View Post

An Interview with Stephanie McTigue of CoFi Leathers

I discovered CoFi Leathers just before I attended Jill Zarin’s 5th Annual Lux Luncheon in Southampton this summer. This refined and affordable genuine leather company, based out of Denver, sells an extensive collection of beautiful and unique clutches, cross-body bags, totes, wristlets, boots, shoes, and more. The name CoFi was created based off of the names of Founder Stephanie McTigue’s sons: “Co”lson and “Fi”nn. Each product created is named after family members or good friends.

To help launch the business and set the standards for impeccable quality, McTigue’s father, Clive, is a leather consultant and has been in the leather business for over 45 years. ‘He actively shares his extensive knowledge of leather manufacturing and product construction with McTigue to ensure that the CoFi brand not only represents style and individuality, but also upholds the highest quality.’ That notion became apparent to me right away as I was introduced to the company. I am in love with their chic and stylish collection that promotes a sense of individuality and confidence. For example, I own the Mollie Cross-Body Convertible Clutch in Rose Gold White and have received dozens of compliments ever since I started using it on a regular basis in July.

Hook ’em & Cook ’em at Navy Beach 2017

Hook ’em & Cook ’em with Barcelona Wine Bar at Navy Beach took place on Wednesday, September 6 from 7-10pm. This event was an Exclusive Dock-to-Dish Inspired Culinary Competition and Private Dinner held at one of Montauk’s Favored Beach-side Dining Destinations. 

Guests were invited to join 14 Barcelona Wine Bar & Restaurant chefs from across the country, along with James Beard Award winner Christopher Lee, at Montauk’s famed Navy Beach, as they return from a day on the open water catching fluke, striped bass, and bluefish. No fluke was caught that morning, thus striped bass was substituted. Using their respective ‘catch of the day’, the chefs prepared an exclusive family-style meal that included produce, seafood, beer, and wine from local partners Amber Waves Farm, Dock to Dish, Montauk Brewing Company, and Paumanok Vineyards.
