NYFW SS18

Ahh, New York Fashion Week. What’s more fun than a train ride to the city? Watching fabulous shows and presentations where we just drool and daydream about owning just one piece from each collection is! Here’s a recap of some of our fun at NYFW this season…

The Spread

We love blogging about food features. We love food. We love drinks. Heck, we’re proud foodies!

We first met Chris Hickey, co-owner of Norwalk’s The Spread, when we were shooting our Cocktails+Cuisine feature with Ken Tuccio. After enjoying drinks and a few apps that night, we wanted to head back for a full feature to chow down, experience more of that energetic SoNo vibe, and get some chat time with Chris for the inside scoop about what makes this restaurant a hidden gem!

Interview with Broadway star Michael Longoria – The Midtown Men

Who hasn’t seen Jersey Boys? Even if you haven’t sung along to the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning musical, you can catch four stars from the original Broadway cast at The Palace Theatre in Stamford on September 30th! They’re known as The Midtown Men, and this super-suave musical group includes Tony Award winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard, and Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer.

We got to chat with Michael Longoria, so check out our interview below and find out why you should grab your tickets now!

Dental Associates of CT – Newtown

😁 Did you know that Dental Associates of Connecticut offers the best cosmetics and implant dentistry around? Neither did we!! We visited the brand new Newtown location to tour the dental-spa…sorry, dental facility, to find out more about smile makeovers.

Whether you’re long in the tooth, short in the tooth, crooked, crowded, or gummy…you name it, there’s a treatment or procedure to help get the perfect smile. Solutions can often be non-invasive aesthetic improvements. We had no idea!

A Vermont Getaway

I lovermont. Vacationing as a child, and then living there for a short time after high school (which are some of my fondest memories), I always felt relaxed and carefree among its lush mountains and quaint picturesque towns. So, it seemed the perfect location for a weekend getaway to celebrate my one year wedding anniversary with Michael. Here are some ideas on things to do and where to stay for your visit to the Manchester area!

Sycamore Drive-In

It is agreed in both of our households, that if we get invited anywhere that involves cool cars, the husbands get to come. When we told our men we were going to the Sycamore Drive-In in Bethel to drink shakes and eat burgers and that it also happened to be Summer Cruise night, they were in!

Fred – Westport

“Hey, Lora…did we die and end up in clothing heaven?”

“No, Bev…we drove to Westport and entered Fred!”

Fred is Westport’s newest women’s contemporary clothing boutique selling beautiful clothes and accessories to match our every fashion mood swing, PLUS, a coffee bar combined! Insert *singing angels*

In today’s post, we ask store owners, Kelley Frey and Shereen Koshnoodi, a question or two about Fred while they style us in some heavenly outfits!

Pedego Electric Bikes

“Hello, fun!” That’s Pedego Electric Bikes’ tagline and also how we felt after our first Pedego experience! We visited their SoNo store a few weeks ago to take a couple of their rental bikes out for a sightseeing spin around beautiful South Norwalk. Ahhh!!!  See how we did…and scroll to the end for a great offer for Unlocking Fairfield readers – your turn to “hello, fun!”

In forma fitness

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.

Oh, and scroll to the bottom for a great deal especially for you, dear Unlocking Fairfield readers 😘
