A Quick Hello!

Happy Friday! I realize there has been radio silence around here this week, so I thought I’d check in quickly. Thankfully, it has been a busy week with client projects and recording the podcast! In addition, I am on day 5 of the ProLon Fast-Mimicking Diet, so I have been trying not to overextend myself this week. I didn’t have a chance to put together a formal Friday 5 for you, but here’s a quick list of what’s been happening!

-Be sure to tune in to the latest episodes of The Style Files Podcast featuring Schumacher Creative Director and Publishing Industry Veteran, Dara Caponigro and Interior Design Legend Alexa Hampton, who is as funny as she is fascinating! Be sure to subscribe, so you don’t miss a beat! If you’re enjoying The Style Files, please consider leaving us a positive rating or review on Apple. It will only take a few seconds of your time and it will be tremendously helpful as we grow.

-We recently started doing Instagram Live on our store, Paloma & Co‘s Instagram @shoppalomaandco and yesterday, Devon and I hosted a little happy hour called “Cocktails & Conversation“. We shared more about our story, how the shop came to be, and answered quite a few questions from the audience. If you missed it, you can watch it here.

-I mentioned that I am on the ProLon Fast-Mimicking Diet right now. It has been a really amazing experience. I have incredible energy, mental clarity, and I have lost about 3 pounds since Monday. This was not established as a diet for weight loss but as a way to promote cellular renewal by triggering “stem cell-based regeneration and autophagy (the clean up of aging & damaged cells)” which promotes stem cell-based renewal. I have been sharing my experience on Instagram and will likely write a recap here on the blog at some point. In the meantime, if this has piqued your interest, my friend and LDV contributor, Karima Hunter has written some great posts about it. In fact, she’s the reason I decided to give ProLon a try! You can also watch the fourth episode of Goop Lab on Netflix in which Gwyneth Paltrow interviews Pro-Lon/FMD’s creator, Dr. Valter Longo and tries the protocol herself.

-Lastly, if you are in need of a little retail therapy, Moda Operandi is currently offering 30% off their new season Best Sellers! I am loving this chic little bag with gold bamboo handle; I have been living in easy, yet chic dresses so that I’m comfortable, yet look presentable on my Zoom calls. I have this Chufy dress in another pattern and I love this Agua by Agua Bendita dress, too. These Lizzie Fortunato earrings would be the perfect finishing touch!

Have a wonderful weekend!
