LOOK Faces of Philanthropy: Cricket Lockhart and Grace Djuranovic
Philanthropy Runs in the Family

Cricket Lockhart and Graci Djuranovic are a dynamic mother-daughter philanthropic duo. As Graci says, “My family members’ commitment to service and the community has been a consistent theme in my life.” For Graci, this model for community involvement began when, in 7th grade, she had just moved to Greenwich and enrolled in Greenwich Academy.

LOOK Health and Fitness: Supplements… Jumpstart Your Inner Athlete

At 40, I started a journey on how to maximize my workouts, build lean muscle and strengthen my whole body. At first, it began with caffeinated products. I read that drinking a black coffee during your workouts will give you that added boost. It did. I moved on to tart cherry juice because it was supposed to help with lactic acid build up and so on. This sparked my curiosity. What else was I missing? I wanted to think about it more scientifically. Read More…

The Producers – Three Talented Local Females Take On Film Stereotypes

When the political thriller An Acceptable Loss debuts in movie theaters around the country this month, a trio of Greenwich women will be keeping close watch on the box-office receipts. They’ll also be hoping their friends have a sharp eye for detail — and can spot them in a dramatic scene with Hollywood stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Tika Sumpter. Read More…

Kim Nichols, MD – Moms Get A Beautiful Makeover

“While motherhood is good for our soul, it can sometimes be hard on our bodies,” says Dr. Kim Nichols. And she should know. Not only is Dr. Nichols a board-certified dermatologist with a thriving practice – NicholsMD of Greenwich—she’s also a wife and mother raising three active kids. Equipped with this triple-packed punch of insight, Dr. Nichols responded with her typical élan and care to the chorus of aesthetic concerns from mothers in town. She created The Non-Surgical Greenwich Mommy Makeover. Read More…

LOOK Health and Fitness: Finding That Fitness Level

If I had to rank my level of fitness on a 1-5 level, I would give myself a solid 4. I desire to be at a 5, but I should never break the glass ceiling. Do better, be better, perform better and compete with one person, yourself. That will determine your level. As you embark in your training in the next few months, I think it’s important to look at what level/category of fitness you would like to achieve. Then begin your training immediately and end indefinitely. Read More…

Small Bites and Big Dreams: The Secrets of Marc Weber’s Success

Marc Weber first got behind the stove at the tender age of three – and hasn’t stopped cooking since. “I asked my parents for a Playskool plastic kitchen when I was a toddler,” the Stamford native recalls. “Soon after that, I started helping my Mom make dinner every night. I became a tiny chef who could sauté, steam and stir-fry.” Read More…

Faces of Philanthropy Shahryar Oveissi – The Great Connector

There are those who excel at sports, men who are genius with technology, and guys for whom languages come as second nature. And then there is Shahryar Oveissi, known to friends across the globe as a great connector. In addition to his role as COO of Work Well Win, the growing co-working space with a health and wellness focus, Shahryar also holds three very active board positions and is the father to three young children. It appears, that in addition to being an astonishing people connector, he’s also mastered the art of fitting more into 24 hours than most of us. Read More…

TRAVEL

View-tiful—The Best of the Alps

We’ve always loved exercise, the outdoors, crisp, fresh air and hiking in beautiful places. That’s what lead to our initial desire/goal to see as many of our U.S. National Parks as possible. Crater Lake, Yosemite, Glacier, Canyonlands, Kenai Fjords, Sequoia, Haleakala and on and on. Slowly working our way thru that extensive list of exquisite scenery, is what also inspired us to try hiking in the Alps. Everyone knows that The Alps has fantastic skiing, so we figured quite naturally that it had to have fantastic hiking too. Pictures in magazines and travel catalogs did their part in providing enticement as well. Read More…

The Ivy Hotel – Baltimore’s New Gem Opens Doors…and Hearts

Baltimore brings to mind crab cakes, the Orioles and the Ravens, and the esteemed Johns Hopkins University. But take a closer look and you find the historic Mt. Vernon section with its cobblestone streets reminiscent of Boston’s Beacon Hill and a boutique luxury hotel that makes you feel transported to Paris. It is here, at The Ivy Hotel, that dreams are sweet, food is indulgent, and the surroundings are the definition of luxe comfort. Read More…

Trending: Villa Vacations

How would you like to relax with friends around Sting’s pool in Tuscany or screen a film in George Lucas’ state-of-the-art movie theater in his Umbria home? Laura Blair of In Villas Veritas can arrange that and much more.”A lot of people have snazzy websites but nothing to back them up. I’ve personally visited every property I recommend,” says Blair.
