October, 2014 – Happy Halloween, Happy Fall!


October, 2014 – Happy Halloween, Happy Fall


When the temperature finally starts to drop and the Halloween decorations come out, it’s perhaps my favorite time of year.  And I love taking our annual trip to the pumpkin patch with the kids. My kids were early with picking out their Halloween costumes this year, so they were all set by September.

This month I’m happy to share a story about a local gem, the Wellington Day Spa. It’s located at Wellington Trace & Greenview Shores Blvd. According to owner Miljana Buljovcic, they are known for the best pedicures in town. The Wellington Day Spa offers holistic treatments and organic products. You can truly escape and relax at The Wellington Day Spa. Check out our “AW Spotlight” article.

We have a new writer for our monthly online magazine – Blanca Greenstein of Greenstein & Associates. Along with Nadia Hoosien, Ms. Greenstein writes “Legal Intelligence.” And who better to go to for legal advice?  This month they write about Hiring the Law Firm that is Right for You.

We are launching a series of new videos!  You might have seen our 9/11 Remembrance video last month or our 60-second ad for That’s Dancing? Thanks to Cups Frozen Yogurt and Wellington Day Spa for sponsoring our 9/11 Remembrance video!  This month we are happy to present an AroundWellington.com “GreenSpot” video about sculptor and environmentalist Norman Gitzen. Thank you to Dr. Randy Laurich of the Wellness Experience and to Jess Santamaria of the Royal Inn (and also our Palm Beach County Commissioner) for being sponsors of this video and this important environmental message. Later this month, we will also present a video to you about the Pink Strydes Affair, happening at the Palm Beach County Convention Center to raise funds for breast cancer survivors.

I’d also like to welcome a new photographer to our team of awesome writers and photographers. Her name is Carey Hoffman and she recently took photos at the annual “Pup Crawl.”  Of course, thank you to photographer Carol Porter for coverage of so many events AroundWellington!

So here’s our “Table of Contents” (below) as you’ll find if you just go to the left side of AroundWellington.com. Don’t forget to patronize our advertisers (in a good way)!  Happy Halloween, Happy October!
