Naples started seeing a glimpse of "normal life", with beaches and restaurants re-opening. We celebrated with SPF in-hand and with drinks at some of our local favorites.
The past few weeks required some serious retail therapy. As we shopped online from home, we wanted to share a few of our favorite local boutiques.

Products of the Month
We shared a few of our favorite work-from-home tips, including blue light glasses that look good AND feel good, essential office candles and even a standing desk. Yes, you could say we are experts in this category!
Quarantine can be tough, but re-creating The Bevy's Italian 75 until we could enjoy at their bar made things a little easier. Read the recipe below and try your own at home!
Add a small amount of Lavender Vodka (we used this one from Total Wine and it tasted perfect) into the bottom of your favorite flute. Add an equal amount of simple syrup for sweetness and top off with your favorite Prosecco! To mimic The Bevy's "roasted rosemary" we look a lighter to a sprig of rosemary.. the professionals do it much better. Garnish with blueberries and enjoy! Cheers.
If you're more in the mood for comfort food, you have to try this recipe for chicken parmesan. Bon Appetit's Best Chicken Parm was definitely a winner this month for our readers. This recipe is involved enough to take up an evening, but not so involved that it will leave you in tears (we see you, homemade bread).
We partnered with Kyra Wells (www.kyrawells.com) to design some snail mail for a good cause. The pre-launch sales sold out completely in just two days and we were able to provide numerous bags of food and other supplies to local animal shelters.

We're always checking out new businesses in the Naples community, and this one was a May favorite! The Little Pink Project was created by Naples local Paula Alise to create adorable jewelry that supports a great cause. Stack this bracelets for yourself or send as a fun gift to a friend!
