i’m turning 39!

Every year for the past decade, Cynthia has celebrated her birthday with her husband at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. “I treat my birthday like a personal national holiday. I don’t work or worry,” says the New York–based compliance attorney and travel/lifestyle blogger. This year, the party of two will celebrate at home because of the festival’s cancellation. Plus, Cynthia is pregnant…with twins! “I don’t know why people are scared of aging; that’s the best part of life,” she says. “You live, you learn, you get better. I can’t wait to see what comes in the next 10 years.” “The beauty of getting older is that you gain a certain level of confidence.

hi, i’m candace!

“My faith is my filter for all things.” There’s a verse in the Bible that I had read many times, yet one day it popped off the page and spoke to my heart like never before. “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” ESTHER 4:14 My life verse comes from the Old Testament Book of Esther. Esther, through a series of events, finds herself in a position of influence that leads to freedom of religion. More than that, her influence saves the lives of her people, the Jewish people. This all happened thousands of years ago,…

“i find instant joy at my sewing machine”

There are few things Amanda enjoys more than using her sewing machine to create beautiful clothes that “make women feel confident and happy.” When her business came to a halt because of the pandemic, she began offering something both front-line workers and her customers needed: face masks. Her website, thehouseofperna.com, received 1,500 orders within days. For every mask sold, one is donated to a front-line worker.

How her first machine inspired her career “In college I planned on becoming a psychiatrist, but after I got a machine and took a sewing class, I realized I wanted to pursue fashion design.” Why she brings her daughter to work “Stella is in the studio with…
