Brooke Notes: The Publisher Perspective

Back on October 3rd, we put on our first-ever self-guided edition of our infamous Tour de Boutique. I’m pleased to report that it was a huge success! We had close to 100 ladies shopping local at TEN of our favorite boutiques. Now that it’s November and the holiday season is upon us, I want to remind you to shop local. Commit to purchasing the majority (or ALL) of your holiday gifts at local businesses this year! Need gift ideas? Check out our holiday gift guide on pages 54 – 57.

If you or someone you know is getting married, be sure to check out pages 92-119! We have a very special FW Engaged section that is chock full of local wedding inspiration. Be sure to follow @fwengaged on Instagram and Facebook for all-things-wedding content in the coming months. We know that brides and grooms have had to do some major pivoting these last few months, but we’re here to remind you…. LOVE is not cancelled!

Oh, and one more thing… be sure to mark your calendars for November 10th! We have an extra special Girls’ Day Out AND Girls’ Night Out at Young Cardinal Café & Co. and Jeffrey Adams on Fourth! We all know and love Jeffrey Adams—but you may not have been to Young Cardinal Café & Co. yet! Let me tell you—it is one of my favorite brunch spots in Winston-Salem and well worth the visit. Learn more on page 59.

I hope your November is full of gratitude…. And shopping local!

All my best,
