comforts of home

In the seven months since the COVID-19 pandemic changed lives around the globe, one aspect of our lives has emerged as all-important: home. Prior to that, so many of us, myself included, lived life largely away from home—at offices, gathering places, and destinations near and far. Now that quarantines and health concerns have made our lives more home-centric, we have come to appreciate parts of our domestic existence that we previously took for granted. One of those is time spent in the kitchen. This month’s cover subject, Ivey Leidy, has created a brand around intentional cooking and the health benefits associated with it. As a certified health and nutrition coach, she devises delicious clean meals and no-nonsense exercise routines that anyone can replicate. Looking at her today—she’s the absolute picture of…

fancy flora

The pandemic’s early stay-home mantra rendered a fortuitous turn for Jupiter resident Zaneta Kuzelova: She finally launched her dream business, Joy de Fleurs. “My grandmother brought me to love and appreciate flowers,” says Kuzelova, whose luxe arrangements have quickly attracted local attention. “She always grew peonies, dahlias, tulips, and many other beautiful flowers in her garden.” Kuzelova emigrated from Czechia in 2015, and a European flair is part of her signature polished look. However, she also heeds trends. She notes that consumers are currently gravitating toward messy, natural looks reminiscent of spring gardens. “Starting a business during COVID-19 is definitely a challenge,” Kuzelova admits. “Fortunately, flower shops are rising; people can’t travel to visit their families but are still thinking of them.” Her mixed floral cones are popular as birthday gifts, she adds.…

a sister story

In 2009, Palm Beach natives Kendall and Libby Glazer founded Stoney Clover Lane on their bedroom floor. They were still in high school at the time and viewed the venture as a creative outlet. Now all grown-up, the sisters and their line of customizable accessories have seen dramatic success, with 400 percent growth year-over-year and sales in the high seven figures. “It grew into the business people know today from a need we felt in our own lives,” Libby explains. “We travel extensively and never felt like there were colorful, fun travel accessories available at the level and quality we expect.” They started with patches and the rest is history. With Palm Beach as a muse, inspiration comes easy. “We grew up in such a colorful, fun, and relaxed environment, and that’s…

KENDALL AND LIBBY SHARE THEIR FAVORITE ITEMS WITH LOCAL TIES • Woven Collection: “Our woven collection was heavily inspired by Palm Beach,” says Kendall. “It’s designed to perfectly accent your beach trip or tropical style.” • Destination Patches: “When we open a new store, we create in-store exclusive destination patches of all our favorite local spots,” says Libby. “For Palm Beach, we have favorites like The Breakers, Cucina, The Colony, and Pizza Al Fresco.”…

parties in the age of covid-19

These days, playing it safe is the name of the game—but that doesn’t mean momentous occasions should be overlooked. Enter the era of at-home events and socially distant parties. “House parties instead of huge venues have become the new normal, with a guest list limited to family and close friends, but still with beautiful decorations, music, and food,” says Andrea Sanchez, balloon stylist and event expert at Blue Lime Events (bluelimeevents.com) in Port St. Lucie, which specializes in custom balloon garlands, arches, and jumbo bouquets, all delivered via no-contact installation. “Virtual parties where the host has a really beautiful backdrop have also become popular,” adds Sanchez, who recommends virtual events for high-risk individuals. For in-person parties, disposable tableware, open spaces, and masks are a must. Another popular pandemic-inspired approach to celebrating is…
