Hello, dear Stylebook readers, and welcome to 2017! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season – and if you are anything like us, you are happy to be settling back into your normal (aka crazy) routine. But it’s a new year, so it’s time to take stock, set goals, and make positive changes. For us, that means upgrading some of your favorite features, bringing in some new voices, adding some new ways to stay connected, and, perhaps most excitingly, launching our biggest giveaway ever!
You may have noticed yesterday that we went a little bigger with the Stylebook Top 5. Why? Well, there are lots of things to love locally, so we’ve upped the ante: Top 5 is now 6 Picks. More is more, right?
Speaking of lots of things to love locally, we are excited to officially welcome TSALT and Red Barn Mercantile to the Stylebook family. TSALT has been a regular contributor for a while, but readers wanted more and we are thrilled to comply. Look for posts from Alicia, Tamara, and the TSALT crew every week.
And if you don’t already know Red Barn Mercantile, well get ready to be charmed. Opened in 2007 by Amy Rutherford with a single vision in mind – to provide old and new to offer signature whole-room designs at great prices — Red Barn Mercantile is more than a furniture boutique and provides more personalized service than a big box retailer. You’ll find the highest quality furniture and gifts, the most unique conversation starters, wall hangings and accent pieces…whether they come from off-the-beaten-track flea markets, or the latest designers. You’ll hear from Amy each week, too; check back Thursday when we interview her about all things Red Barn Mercantile.
It’s a new year, so health and wellness are at the top of everyone’s mind. Lucky for us, Fitness on the Run will be expanding their posts – both in frequency and in subject matter. Megan, FOR’s resident nutritionist, will be posting about the best way to eat for optimal health and happiness. Have a specific question? Shoot me an email and you may find your answer appearing right here in Stylebook!
Adrien is about to celebrate a milestone birthday (look for an amazing series on this this month) and it got us thinking about how we celebrate. Milestones matter, communities matter…and we have just the platform to do something cool. Stylebook Shout-Outs is our new weekly feature where we let *you* share the good news. Your bestie have a birthday? Did your friend get a promotion? Someone getting married or having a baby? Fill out this form and we’ll shout her (or him!) out. Look for this every Tuesday.
And now maybe the most exciting news: the giveaway! Want to update your closet and your look? Refresh your home? Get healthier? Could you use a couple thousand dollars to help you with some of those resolutions? Watch this space! We will announce all the You & Improved giveaway details soon!
