Put down your pumpkin spice latte and grab your calendars!  It’s October (can you believe it?!) and Macy’s has you booked with events this month to empower your closet, your mind and your soul. That’s right: another month of events to keep your spirits high and your wardrobes happy.  I find, especially in troubling times, that keeping active, using self-care, connecting with others and treating yourself are easy ways to feel a little lighter and to work toward staying present in your own life. So it goes without saying that keeping your calendar full with fun activities (especially ones with giveaways!) is a must as we to march on.  Also, I for one am so excited because this month we focus not only on shoes (my favorite things!), we also get to experience Hispanic Heritage Month! Getting to know other cultures, and others’ life stories, has always fascinated me, and I love that we all can get an opportunity to discover that together.

Can you guess which event I will be at this month?!
