Following our ratio of one fitness post for every three food posts, today we’re telling you all about our visit to W. Rhythm Fitness & Wellness in Kent. “Work hard, play hard” is our motto alongside, “Workout so you can eat what you want!” Variety is the key to any good fitness program and W. Rhythm Fitness has that covered.

Restaurant: Fife ‘n Drum Restaurant, 53 Main Street, Kent, Connecticut

When you are hankering for: New American, eclectic, seasonal, comforting food. A restaurant steeped in history (family run and owned since 1973) serving up some classic favorites plus specialties that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else around here. When you want to sit by the fire and have the best Caesar salad or filet au poivre made for you tableside. Also, for those who like to choose from an extensive wine list (28 pages and they have made the Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence every year since 1992). The Fife ‘n Drum is a beloved Kent institution. The ambiance feels like a hug from a loved one – it’s so darn cozy. The perfect place to go after an afternoon of shopping in Kent on a cold, frosty day! We loved every moment of our 20-course meal…

Kingsley Tavern

Restaurant: Kingsley Tavern, Kent

When you are hankering for: “Creative, fresh food from local farms, and a great selection of craft beer, wine and cocktails in a friendly, casual setting.”

Occasion: Comfort eating season is upon us…we knew Kingsley Tavern would be just the ticket!

Nancy Novogrod has had an impressive career as an editor in the magazine world. First, as Editor-in-Chief of House & Garden, and then for twenty years as Editor-in-Chief of Travel + Leisure magazine. The places she must have gone, done, seen!

Nancy and her husband split their time between New York and Kent…which is a good thing because we most certainly wanted to visit the home of somebody so well traveled! We’re willing to guess that being the EIC of Travel + Leisure would involve a fair bit of world commuting.

Also, we had questions…

Lora thinks it’s a bit ludicrous that I come from Scotland (birthplace of golf) and have never, ever golfed. I’ve played miniature golf….so no, no experience whatsoever.

In an effort to encourage me to check it out (she really wants a female golfing friend) she partnered us up with a very cool women’s golf clothing company, Sport Haley and arranged a shoot at the unbelievably gorgeous Bull’s Bridge Golf Club.

With a couple of days scheduled doing all the fashionista things of our dreams at NYFW, we asked Bartley Johnstone, stylist and owner of B. Johnstone in Kent, to help us come up with an amazing outfit for one of the days!

We asked Bartley to please kick us out of our comfort “go-to” zones, and help us put together an outfit that would scream “street style!”

We know it’s still trés hot outside, but fall sweater weather is a comin’! We teamed up with Wooden Ships by Paola Buendia to show off some of our favorites from their autumn/winter ’16 collection. Wooden Ships is a super eco-friendly, socially conscious, cool company based in NYC, and they make the snuggliest sweaters ever!

A few months ago it dawned on Lora that her wedding day was just around the corner and that it was crunch time! Everyone wants to be in their best shape ever on their big day – so we texted Hope Lord at Fitness Matters in Kent, and asked if she would help Lora get “fit to be wed!”

Terston

Terston, located in Kent, is another excellent Litchfield County store. Filled with home accents, gifts, and most importantly (in our opinions) apparel; we pretty much love everything they carry. I think we may have said “Oooh, that’s nice,” or “Ooh, that’s gorge” at least 20 times. Geraldine Woodruff, owner, and our stylist for the morning didn’t seem to mind, though. Check out our Terston summer styles here, then check out the rest of the store, and our chat with Geraldine (a fellow ex-pat from Scotland) down there. ↓
