A Quick Connect with Shaul Dover

A Quick Connect with Shaul Dover

Shaul Dover never considered a career in the music industry – he owned a successful leather goods business. But, as the expression goes, if you want to make God laugh, tell her your plans. In the early 2000s, Dover stumbled into the music industry, opening Sweatshop Studios in Katonah. He’s recorded a variety of famous musicians, from our own Rob ...
From Kathmandu to Westchester

From Kathmandu to Westchester

Writing by Gia Miller Photography by Justin Negard It’s hard work running a restaurant, much less two. But the Jewel of Himalaya owner is perfectly suited for it — he's worked tirelessly his entire life. When Tshering T. Lama was five years old, his parents enrolled him in a boarding school. He lived in a small Nepalese village called Solukhumbu, ...

5 Things to Enhance Your Meditation Practice

If you’re not already a meditator, you’ve likely met at least one person who recommend you give it a try. Even though it can seem a bit silly or unnatural at first, the more you do it, the more you’ll want to make it a part of your daily routine. And the more you’ll turn to it in moments of ...

Crafting Glamour

Writing by Amy Baker Photography by Justin Negard In the mid-1990s, jewelry designer Cynthia Ryan created her first Lunette ring while enrolled in a beginner’s jewelry-making course at the Fashion Institute of New York. Her professor was amazed. “What exactly do you do during the day,” he asked. “Your design is a different approach than most, more architectural and reminiscent ...

LMNOP

LMNOP

Anne Mayhew wanted to learn how to bake “really good bread,” and with three kids under the age of four, it was an ambitious endeavor. She mastered sourdough while her kids slept, and soon her friends began asking to buy her loaves. From there, it snowballed, and she named her home bakery LMNOP Bakery, as in the letters of the ...

Understanding the Key to Longevity

Understanding the Key to Longevity

by Ava Fleisher It’s easy to use the phrase “we’ll all die someday” as an excuse to neglect your health. But the truth is, it’s really not that easy. Sometimes, if you focus on the right things in the right places, the average American lifespan of 77 years can be more lively and even lengthened. Ask yourself: “Wouldn’t I rather ...
Stop Dieting and Start Eating Well

Stop Dieting and Start Eating Well

By Gia Miller Diet – it’s a four-letter word that makes a lot of people cringe. Some people spend their life uttering that word, others do it before milestone events so they “look good in the pictures,” and there are those who avoid it altogether. Regardless of which category you fall into, most of us know diets don’t really work ...

Katonah Love: The New Sewer

Katonah Love: The New Sewer

When one thinks of Katonah, the word ‘spicy’ invariably comes to mind. It’s the ultimate singles scene. The perfect hotspot for romance, dating, and whatever hookups someone might want. Even the word “Katonah” translates roughly to “nights of passion.” (I think?) So, when I told my city friends that I was moving to this sizzling Northern Westchester neighborhood, they all ...
