Dear Reader,

I have been suppressing my interest in fashion and food for far too long. I won’t explain why but I will share some photos here and there and promote a few friends too. If you see something you like, please support them and tell them where you heard the news.

Food.

First, I would like to introduce you to Nikita. As I was thinking about my readers and the genre of novels I am working on, I thought of her style of food. Nikita Richardson is my former co-worker at MSM, and she is one gem of a woman, a major go-getter, and a culinary trendsetter. She started this incredible business called Sizzling Single in 2013 based on the concept of “serving solo servings, one recipe at a time.” She had nearly the entire C-suite buying lunches from her. Below are a couple of snaps from her Instagram page.

In a piece by VoyageATL, Nikita states that her company’s goal “is to eliminate food waste by providing portion-control based meals.” Inspiring, right? Well, I’ve had her salads and desserts, and they are scrumptious!!! You won’t waste a bite. So check out what’s cookin’ with Nikita at http://www.mouthjarring.com. And tell her you heard about it here. XO.

Earrings.

Erica found her purpose in jewelry design at MaddieX after Covid-19 took her job. But her past employers loss is our gain. Maddie X earrings are to live by. I have two pairs so far, and I like them so much I try to make them work with all my outfits.

Shoes.

  

Pictures of pretty shoes make a pretty page. These aren’t bad to me, but according to The Zoe Report, these are some of the best for Spring and Summer 2021.
