Meet Andrea!

Meet Andrea!

With the New Year – and many of us looking to eat healthier, exercise more, and just feel stronger, Andrea is someone to know! After a career in events and fashion, Andrea unexpectedly fell into the world of fitness after becoming a mom to three amazing kiddos, and finding herself on a path to feel more confidence and strength- physically and emotionally. She is now a personal trainer, health and fitness coach, and instructor at [solidcore]. Fun Facts: she is up at 430am (by choice!), was once the mascot for a minor league baseball team, and would love to be able to sing and dance like JLo in a next life! Andrea is motivating, strong, and a rockstar momma, and such a great example that when life doesn’t go as planned, there is always a way to make It better by taking matters into your own hands! Thank you Andrea!

Why UPS is the Hottest Place in Westport!

Why UPS is the Hottest Place in Westport!

If you have lived in Westport longer than a month, you have likely visited the UPS store on Post Road (across from Fresh Market, and next to Dunkin’ Donuts), and you have likely met Don and/or Nelson! These two men have been at this store for a collective 44 years, and truly make all of us smile each and every day- and also feel like supermodels!! Whether it’s their slightly off color (yet always amusing!) jokes, or simply taking 13 boxes off our hands, and making It seem easy, they just make It all better, each and every time. So, as we all likely will be sending (and returning!) lots of packages in the coming weeks, go out of your way to say that extra Happy Holidays to the amazing people that run that place, and maybe take that extra moment to THANK THEM for all they do to constantly brighten our days! We love you Don & Nelson!!!!
