L’ABEYE- Lifestyle Fashion Brand

I am loving this new site, launched by our neighbor, Naomie Olindo, who has combined her eye for fashion, personal style and sharp business acumen to bring us something special!

L’ABEYE /luh-bei/, is a lifestyle brand specializing in privately labeled apparel for fresh, motivated women. A unique fashion movement with a twist.

And here is something I love about Naomie’s creative process…. she uses local models, local marketing interns, and more.  And speaking of keeping it local?  Check out her photos taken at our own Pitt Street Pharmacy!  Simply stunning!  And be sure to follow them on Instagram!

iParent Education

Local parent, neighbor, and social media educator, Jennifer Bilbro, started iParent Education to bridge the technology communication gap. She wants to empower parents to keep children safe, connect with them through technology, and guide them to be good digital citizens. Parents don’t have to know (nor do they need to know) everything about technology, but we cannot afford to bury our head in the sand and hope for the best.

Most parents are challenged by technology and the influence it has on our children. The constant connection to friends through social media or even a vlogger that share videos daily, often takes precedence over our influence. Jennifer addresses today’s technology advances and trends in a language parents can understand. She provides tips and tricks on how to communicate with your tech child and understand what they are doing on devices.
