Help REFLECT Apparel win Best Boutique in Pittsburgh

30 Aug

I usually don’t promote/push specific stores, restaurants, or brands, but Reflect at Settler’s Ridge has become a favorite of mine, and so I’d like to help them out by promoting this contest for them.

Please consider voting “Reflect Apparel” in Robinson as Pittsburgh’s Best Boutique.

You won’t be sorry – – the owners, who met  while working for Michael Kors, have done a great job of giving Pittsburgh the fashion facelift that many felt it has needed.

They scour the country to bring you fabulous garments from both established and up-and-coming designers. Their clothes are a mix of California cool classics and trendy “this-moment” looks.

To vote for them, simply go here and vote Reflect as your favorite boutique: http://www.whirlmagazine.com/2011/04/whirl-awards/

Martha Stewart Does Market District

14 May

Today, Martha Stewart madness took over Market District in Robinson Township, right outside of Pittsburgh. Approximately 750 people got the opportunity to see a demonstration of Martha’s new “Martha Stewart Clean” eco-friendly household products, and get either books or products autographed by Martha herself.

Ms. Stewart was, of course, polished, polite, and impeccibly dressed, and surprisingly friendly, posing for photos with fans during the book signing and being chatty. The whole event was run very efficiently and smoothly and was overall well-done and well-organized, and very tasteful.

Even though we were told that she would not pose for photos, when I got up there, she took a picture with me without my even asking her to. I was expecting someone to just take a picture of her as she was signing my book, but she was gracious and nice, and even offered me encouragement on publishing my own book someday.

I admit, I went into it as a skeptic. I wanted to see what it was all about, and I wanted to blog about it for my ‘day job’ because of the whole healthy living and wellness component, but, I’ve never been a huge Martha fan. However, it goes to show that you shouldn’t judge people because, she was very kind to me and didn’t rub me the wrong way at all. I can only speak for my personal experience but I left happy, and, after looking through the Fresh Flavor Fast book, hungry.

Kudos to Market District (and what a fabulous store that is, anyway!) for putting on such a lovely event!

M.Stew in Pittsburgh

10 May

Martha Stewart will be doing a book signing this weekend at Pittsburgh’s newest, chicest spot for a true grocery ‘experience’ – the new Settler’s Ridge Giant Eagle Market District.

Tickets are limited and you must claim yours in advance via an online waitlist. Also, she will only be signing copies of her best-selling books: Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook and Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast, but she will be on-hand to offer fresh eating and spring-cleaning tips.

For more information, contact Market District.
