@AlepelByAdriana Takes Us To Shoe Heaven!

You can make a stylish statement any way you want — by your hairstyles, clothes or accessories. I choose to make a statement with the shoes I wear. Because I’m addicted to cute shoes. Shoes that have been well-designed, with quirky little “enhancements” that only shoe lovers notice. And there’s a great new shoe line on the block I’m waiting to take a peak at: ALEPEL.

Adriana Epelboim Levy is the creator behind this fab label, calling herself a self-confessed fashion addict, architect, world traveler, and of course, shoe designer.

But before any of us see this brand new collection of shoes, ALEPEL is keeping us in suspense with a 15-day countdown to the big reveal of the website. Until then (Nov 30th), you can sign up to the site at and one lucky winner will score a fantastic discount on their fave pair of shoes.


What am I loving so far about this brand? It’s fresh approach to fashion. Daring to be wild. Keeping artistic integrity in every design.

Take a look at what you can expect to be unveiled in the next coming weeks:


That’s just getting started. I’m loving the look of these wedges and heels:

Better with Pets with @Purina

Last week I was so lucky to attend the Purina Better with Pets Seminar.  The line up of speakers talked about all facets of lifestyle and how pets improve our well being. Purina Hosts First-Ever Better With Pets Summit to Showcase Positive Relationships Between People and Pets Daylong event featured 16 dynamic speakers and presenters, including animal welfare advocate Beth Stern, Veterinarian Dr. Marty Becker and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian

The event was held in New York City and featured 16 speakers, including academics, pet behavior experts, performance artists and scientists. My favorite by far was Dr. Arleigh Reynolds who spoke about this dogs in Alaska. He spoke about training, breeding, exercising and diet for his champion racing dogs. It was so touching to see how this vet’s research project turn into a heartwarming and incredible story for his whole family and Alaska.
