Interesting Islanders

When you meet Anne Zenker, you are immediately captivated by her energy. She is vibrant, funny, and passionate. Retiring from her job as a personal trainer (I bet she’s amazing) and a high school lacrosse coach in Summer of 2016, and now living on the Vineyard full time, Anne knew that she wanted to write a […]

When a friend suggested trying Aerial Yoga with her and a group of friends at the Yoga Barn in West Tisbury, my initial thoughts were heck no, I am no yoga guru. However, the more I thought about it, I thought why not. Pictures I have seen look very cool, and it’s always fun to try […]

It seems like just yesterday, I was at Not Your Sugar Mamas in the Tisbury Market Place talking about new chocolate bar flavors that were being whipped up. Now when you walk into NYSM, it is a whole new world. Yes, there are still chocolate bars, but now there is SO MUCH MORE. This is […]

I am relatively new to the kombucha scene, but know that it has been gaining popularity. I admit that I like to have a bottle or two a week, and love getting the Island made komucha when I find it in  stores or at the Chilmark Fles Market. Why is kombucha becoming so popular? Well, first […]

A little over three years ago, I wrote a story about Lauren Morgan. An Island designer who was launching her clothing line, premiering at Martha’s Vineyard Fashion Week. As it turns out, that collection was a stepping stone in this designer’s evolution to where she is now. After designing her line, she was working with […]

It’s always nice to be able to do something for yourself, no matter how big or how small. I recently discovered Divine Med Spa, where you can definitely find a way to treat yourself.   I have walked by Divine time and time again, always wondering. Wonder no more, I made the trip. The space is […]
