Soirees have to be the best kind of Parties...

The November Goddess Soiree was absolutely amazing. We had two fantastic Goddesses who shared great information and kept everyone engaged! The new Bella Zadore Goddess mugs were a hit and our HAT CONTEST was one of the highlights of the evening!

If you missed our Soiree, don't worry we're busy in the studio planning our next few events and we promise to make sure to keep things exciting, fun and interesting. Our Goddesses Wendy Battles, The Clean Eating Coach and Dale Allen of "In Our Right Minds" were absolutely phenomenal. Wendy shared some reasons why clean eating could contribute to bettering our health, mood and overall well-being. Dale gave a preview of her one-woman show "In Our Right Minds", which she performed the following evening. Then we finished the night with our 1st ever HAT CONTEST. We asked all Goddesses to wear the hat that best describes their personality. Our Goddesses really came prepared and had some fantastic stories behind their hats! Then as our guests prepared to take their leave they left with a "Thank You", Bella Zadore favors filled with chocolate candies.

If you don't want to miss out on having a Goddess experience stay tuned to Bella Zadore News for all you updates!

Halloween Madness!

It's fall and it's October. That means Halloween. I just wanted to wish everyone a thrilling, chilling, exciting and candy laden HALLOWEEN!

Here's what the girls and I are doing next week.

We decided to head to New York and be part of the family friendly "The Great Pumpkin Sail." This event takes place at Central Park. You bring your own personally carved pumpkin and candles and then send him on his merry way on a raft. Can you imagine dozens of pumpkins going for a sail all at once. How cute!

Then, we're going to leave the kiddies behind and return to the city of lights for a thriller, chiller "Steampunk Haunted House" at the century old Abrons Art Center. In order to enjoy this extravaganza of beautiful horror its just $20.

Steampunk Haunted House Trailer from Third Rail Projects on Vimeo.

Remember no one under 8 years old is allowed admission. If you're tired of the same old Snicker, Baby Ruth trick or treat routine. Take an adventure and try some new activities. Happy Halloween!

Ciao, Bella

Fresh Face, Fresh Products

Our online store has a new look and a new name, La Chic Boutique. We felt with all the changes we've been making lately we should give some TLC to the Bella Zadore Mall.

We premiered our brand new Goddess line at our launch party in September. It was a hit. Everyone was asking, "What store can I find these in?" The wait will soon be over. We developed our Goddess line to include more than the 3 original designs and the entire collection of mugs, id cases, compacts, bookmarks and luggage tags will debut at La Chic Boutique in just a few weeks!

Mad Over Food!

This month our Goddess, Wendy Battles, The Clean Eating Coach has been making an impact on our Bella Zadore Community. Wendy is a cheerful advocate for healthy eating. Most people think about eating healthy as boring and tedious, but with The Clean Eating Coach you receive delicious recipes, strategies to meal planning that fit your lifestyle and an energetic cheerleader to encourage you to keep up the good work.

Wendy has helped many of her clients change their minds about how they think about food and how what they eat reflects how they take care of themselves. It is Wendy's philosophy that eating more healthfully is a way to show your body some love. Through her services she allows clients to gain access to a wealth of information that helps educate them on what other foods are out there beside cheeseburgers, spaghetti and fast food. Sometimes the most exciting advice she shares is how to make our favorite indulgences into healthy alternatives.

She stopped by the studio this month to become officially a part of the Goddess Series on Bella Zadore Radio. In the interview we find out how a hectic life of over-commitment contributed to her decision to make a change and pursue being a health coach. We also got to see how much fun you can have with food and how much Wendy enjoy's talking about helping others.

Don't wait another second visit our Featured Goddess page and see what the October Goddess is all about!

What happens in Vegas.........

We came, we saw and we just might have conquered. And everything that happened in Vegas we're going to tell you all about it! "Sin City" as the natives call it, was simply sublime. How could you not enjoy fashion shows three times a day, interactive gaming with the latest and greatest, big teletrons, restaurants in every direction, the House of Blues 5 minutes away and countless people to meet? Of course the appeal and excitement of rushing across town in New York still gets us amped up, but it was totally convienent with everything under one roof. Needless to say, we had a successful and playful trip. Soon, we hope to see new Bella products emerging from our time in Vegas and moving Bella down the east coast and beyond.

Go Ahead.....Buy the Purse you deserve it.

It's spring cleaning time.....and we believe that the best way to celebrate all your hardwork and of course memorialize all that you had to give up, you should SHOP! That's right, shop. Unfortunately a lot of people get spring fever and head to the store at the same time with the same idea. Don't worry it's totally fine if you can't always find your size in that special pair of leather, zebra print, peek a boo, opened toe, stilettos. Our Star Product is here to remind you what to do in that kind of crisis.

"If the shoes don't fit buy the purse instead."

Well, that's the secret and you can remind yourself with a magnet on your fridge, on your mug or bookmark. Visit our store and check it out. This way you never leave the store empty handed and you are always satisfied, well almost. If your heart is really set on those shoes ask the manager when is the next shipment and trust us be there early!

We're Heading to Vegas, BABY!

And we're getting ready to show off Bella and the girls at the Licensing International Expo in June at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. We absolutely can't wait, really how can you go wrong with work and play all in the same place? Since we can't find any glitches in this plan see you in Vegas.
