2017 Seasonably Chic Showcase Details Announced!

Our biggest shopping event of the year, the Seasonably Chic Showcase, is coming up on Nov. 4 just in time for the holidays! This is always my favorite event because I get to get all my Christmas shopping done for everyone on my list — men, women, children, pets, grandparents, you name it! — while shopping local, or even hand-making items like ornaments or mini canvases! Plus, you can do it all with a mimosa in hand, get a mini massage, AND free gift wrapping! It’s all for a great cause, too! Just bring a canned good for the Freestore Foodbank, and you get in to the event for FREE and that includes a swag bag filled with goodies! Hope you can make it! All the event details and RSVP info is below!

2017 Seasonably Chic Showcase

Connect Cincinnati’s “Lunch Club”

Designed by Cincinnati Bell, the Connect Cincinnati app is the first city-wide, free mobile app that connects consumers, businesses and the community. It has TONS of information about things to do, discounts on food/drinks/events and activities all over town, plus it even tells you where all the fioptic free wifi is across the city!
I’m loving all the discounts on the app. They have several different categories for you to find what you’re looking for faster, like dining, shopping, sports, family fun, salon & spa… things like that. But I just noticed this “lunch club” category and I’m loving it because it has a ton of places on there I love going – like Prime, Taste of Belgium, and The Anchor – and LOTS places I’ve been wanting to check out too!
After a delicious lunch at Prime today where I got $5 off, I hopped over to Sweet Petit in OTR and got a free dessert when I bought two! All you have to do is show them coupon on your app and your discount is applied! Easy peasy! Definitely recommend it!
You can download the Connect Cincinnati app for free in Google Play or the Apple App Store.

Girls Night Out with Painting With a Twist!

I’m SO excited to let you know that we’re teaming up Painting with a Twist to bring you Girls Night Out!

Mark your calendars for September 25 when we venture out to two Cincinnati locations for a fun night of sipping wine, painting with the girls, and swag bags!

$25 per person gets you all of your painting supplies plus wine! YAY!

We’ll be at Painting with a Twist in Mason as well as their West location, so be sure to check them out and RSVP to save your spot!

Broadway in Cincinnati Brings “Wicked” to Town!

Mark your calendars because Broadway in Cincinnati is bringing the play Wicked to town starting September 13!

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in.  WICKED, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

The show will run for five weeks, and there are still plenty of great seats available! Wondering which night may be the best to go? You’ll find the best prices on weeknights! You can even buy tickets in person at the Aronoff Center Ticket Office to avoid most fees.

Keep in mind: Shows like this often bring out the worst tickets scams.  Don’t get scammed – be sure you are buying at CincinnatiArts.org, the official Aronoff Center Ticketing Site, not a 3rd party ticket seller that may come up in a Google search.

We’re giving away a set of tickets to the opening show on September 13, click here to enter!

My Cincinnati Bell App from Cincinnati Bell

Between being a busy mom of a two, running a business and planning all our events, I’m on the go constantly. I’m actually rarely in front of a computer any more — I mainly just work from my phone. I love all my different apps and notifications. So that’s why the new My Cincinnati Bell app is awesome. It gives you access to your most important account and services information. You can access and manage your Cincinnati Bell phone, Internet, and Fioptics TV accounts with your Apple or Android smartphone.

You can pay your bill in a super quick three steps. You can view billing and payment history, check your current services and available services for your address, and even setup and manage Autopay through the app. You can also setup customized notifications for billing, payments and special offers including upcoming promotions and events. There’s also a great Help Center on the app that helps you find quick answers to your billing, payment and service questions. You can view frequently asked questions and even troubleshoot basic service issues in real time. There’s also an interactive map so you can see the Cincinnati Stores and Payment Centers closest to your location.

It’s really helpful for someone on the go who lives on their phone like me! It’s a free download on Google Play or the Apple App Store if you’d like to learn more or check it out for yourself!
