HERE’S THE SCOOP…
FEATURED SCOOP: THE NELSON SHOP’S LINE OF MERCHANDISE PROMOTES KINDNESS
Allison Nelson wants to spread kindness and positivity one t-shirt and coffee mug at a time. The Brooklyn, New York native (now local) recently launched her spring line of products from The Nelson Shop. The online store features the softest t-shirts you’ll ever feel (they have suede in them…uh-mazing!), coffee mugs, hats, and bags with unique sayings like ‘Rule the Roost’, ‘Pretty Powerful’, ‘It’s Been a Long Day’, ‘Mama’s Heart’ , and our personal favorite ‘Yes You Can’. Allison and her husband created the online shop as a space where everything comes from love. In her words, “You should wake up every day and act out of love.” We just “LOVE” that! The tenets of her mission: INCLUSION, KINDNESS, LOVE, and LAUGHTER. Follow her on social media (Facebook/Instagram) to see her line of goods and join her movement of making the world a better place.
SECOND LOCATION FOR POPULAR SHAKE SHOP
The Fresh Monkee is opening shop #2 in town. They will be one of the tenants in the new building at the Shops on Main next to McDonald’s. They also have a location next to The Coffee Shop in the center. This will be their 6th location! How exciting for owner, Judy Flynn, who started the business in a small space in Wethersfield just six years ago! They have a loyal customer following with lots of love for their many different flavors of protein shakes. If you haven’t tried one…stop in and tell them we sent you. Our fave is the Chunkee Monkee = HEAVEN.
KITCHEN TO KILOS GUIDES CLIENTS TO A STRONGER LIFESTYLE
Jessica Gilmore loves to help people refine their fitness. The personal trainer and nutrition coach initially started Kitchen to Kilos to help friends prepare for fitness competitions, but now works with all different people and body types (Moms, Weightlifters, Crossfitters, Runners) who have one common goal: TO GET FIT. Her nutritional focus is macro-nutrient calculations, a healthy balance between carbs, fats, and proteins. Her results speak for themselves. Check out some impressive before and after pics of her clients below or find her HERE.
COUNSELOR HELPS YOUNG ADULTS THROUGH TRANSITION
Ask parents who have sent their kids to counselor Jeannie Kmetz for guidance through difficult transitions and they can’t say enough. Jeannie owns Reach Counseling on Main Street in Glastonbury. She was a counselor in a local school system for years before branching out on her own. She specializes in helping late adolescents and young adults through some of life’s biggest changes (high school to college/college to real life). Jeannie has an easy way about her and uses a supportive approach for both the kids and their parents. To reach her, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
ODDS & ENDS…
*Marshall’s in Manchester is moving locations. They will open in the former Toys ‘R Us space in The Plaza at Buckland Hills (near Trader Joe’s). They are currently on the back side of the mall next to the old Bob’s Store. This Marshall’s has always been a hidden gem with some great finds! It will be a secret no more in this new location!

*This recently caught our eye when we were visiting Athleta in Westfarms. They sell Empower Pads! These are bra inserts for women who have had a mastectomy. And, they sell them AT COST to help support those who are going through this difficult transition in their life. We just love that and wanted to share.
