Spread the Love

Have you ever been so inspired by something that you just have to tell people about it?  Well I guess that is pretty much what Style Nook is.  So once again I have something really special to share with you and hope you will love it as much as I do.  There is this amazing local online magazine that is stylish, beautifully designed, and downright inspiring.  Are you getting excited?  Well good, you should be! 

 When two friends were sharing a 5 hour layover in the airport they were people watching, naturally.  And they realized that people are beautiful!  Not just models in Vogue and InStyle, but real people like you and me.  And their simple but brilliant idea was born.  DOCICA was born.  DOCICA (doce + chica) is an online magazine that will feature 12 women this year, 1 each month.  They believe that we can find inspiration in the women who make up our everyday, that these women are beautiful.  And I say, absolutely!  Here is their creed:
"We at DOCICA will always portray the real woman-- the one who is living life full and loving well.  May she be inspiration enough.  And may we always find her beautiful."
Alright people, get ready to be inspired!

Here are the two lovely ladies (aka masterminds) behind the magazine!
 Their first issue (check it out here) seemed about as good as it gets but I KNOW there is so much more amazing to come from them.  I am just so excited about this magazine and needed to spread the love to you, my readers.  Are you ready to see more?  I thought you might be!  Check out their website here (don't forget to subscribe), like them on facebook here, follow them on twitter here.  You will not be disappointed!  And I hope you will spread the love too.  Because remember...

Summer Staple

When I think of summer, I think of the beach, sun, sand, and then I think of espadrilles.  I am a huge fan.  But sometimes it seems hard to find classic, well made, and beautiful ones.  Well not any longer.  Enter the company Soludos.   Soludos was started by Nick Brown simply because he could not find this staple from his childhood in his new home in NYC.  "Determined to show them that life exists beyond the flip flop, he set out to design and source the perfect accessory for a summer of fun and friends.  Combining the clink of a glass ‘Salud’ and the heat of the sun ‘sol’, Soludos was born."

Don't these look like the most comfortable summer shoe?  I love their simplicity and am drawn to the pattern and stripes.  Oh and I almost forgot, they are $28 or less.  How about that for a great deal!  So take a peek here and choose your favorite.  Or maybe two or three!
