AriZona’s new sparkling mineral water line has recently launched within the New York Metro area. Available in five refreshing flavors, there’s a taste for every mood. Flavors include Strawberry, Pineapple Coconut, Orange Grapefruit, Lemon Lime and Black Raspberry. Each contain no calories or sweeteners.
The packaging is so cheerful and eye-catching. The bright vintage etched fruit illustrations really capture your attention and brings a whole new look for the next generation of AriZona. My favorite sparkling water flavor is Orange Grapefruit but it was a tough choice!

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.
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.
