Nene Shoe Creates a Sophisticated Approach to Matching Mother / Daughter Footwear

“Currently, our flats, wedges, and derbies attract both women and kids, because the designs have components that appeal to both,” says Designer Jasmine Mendoza.

Nene Designer and Creative Director Jasmine Mendoza, along with her husband Froilan as Technical Director, are introducing a new fashion line of wedges, flats, derbies and sneakers for mothers and daughters. Inspired by global international travel, Froilan and Jasmine combined their strengths to become the husband-and-wife team behind Nene Shoes.

Nene Shoes (pronounced /ne-ne/, “ne” as “net”) is based on Jasmine’s mom’s name, Nene M. Pamintuan. In the Filipino language, nene means little girl or young woman. While growing up in the Philippines, the rich culture of sights, tastes and sounds offered an influential base. In 2013, Jasmine left a corporate life involving travel as a consultant to join a financial services company. As her schedule stabilized, she was able to use her creativity to build something of her own. By leveraging her husband Froilan’s start-up expertise, Jasmine and he partnered to implement their shared vision: Filling a void in the market for a more sophisticated approach to mommy-and-me shoes. Jasmine started designing in 2014 and launched the first Nene Shoes collection in 2015.

Nene shoes has the kid-meets-adult look. Jasmine explains, “An exciting kid’s shoe can have the sophistication and practicality of an adult shoe. It doesn’t need bows, overly done designs, or boxed toes. My daughter wants to imitate what I wear, and at the same time, I want her to experience and enjoy some of the more mature-yet-practical styles in the same way that I do. Currently, we have flats, wedges and derbies for women and kids. Each style has two-three colorways. For Spring 2017, we are adding more styles and introducing slip-on sneakers which will initially be available in two colors.

“In my twenties, I traveled extensively in Asia, Europe and the United States,” Jasmine recalls, “I lived in Hong Kong, Germany, and the United States for months at a time, while shuttling back and forth to Manila. I observed what people wore to better understand their tastes, needs, and desires, based on their demographics. When I visit the Linea Pelle fairs, I am constantly on the lookout for new leather materials and prints. At times, the materials create an initial inspiration for the design and construction of shoes–not the other way around. Currently, our flats, wedges, and derbies attract both women and kids, because the designs have components that appeal to both.

“If you look at the footwear market today,” Jasmine continues, “kid’s shoes are usually made from man-made or synthetic materials. As much as possible, we like to use genuine leather, while maintaining competitive prices comparable to other brands’ synthetic shoes. We don’t compromise design or quality for the sake of anything. All designs bear our signature logos, a woman’s and kid’s footprint placed side by side, to create an image of a butterfly.”

“Most importantly, I look at the practicality and comfort of the design. As a mom, I would only buy what I think is best for my kids. Also, all of our styles are named after our immediate family members and often reflect their personalities.”

“I am particularly inspired by unique geometric prints, beautiful color palettes and how existing things are enhanced to create something entirely new. What is most important,” she emphasizes, “is the shared experience between the mom and the kid, as they bond over wearing the same shoe design. We are currently exploring the idea of designing baby’s shoes and apparel as well. This is our vision for Nene Shoes.”

Through one of its women’s lines, Nene Shoes was able to help support an indigenous tribe in the Philippines, and they will soon be partnering with the Children’s Museum of the Arts in NYC for New York Fashion Week.

My children and I love Sugarfina, the divinely magical candy boutique in the Time Warner Center where the shops at Columbus Circle are. How creative to sell packaged little candies from all over the world and place them in a gorgeous bento box!

Truth be told I actually discovered it with my BFF Lauren Lawrence, we were attending a cocktail party on the higher floors….and I told her I just had to leave early to visit the candy shop….she agreed and off we went together purchasing goodies to take home.

image

I have always had a long term affair with sugar, I just love it, I don’t make excuses for it….I just enjoy it, and delight when some new confection comes along that is fun! Sugarfina is fun…..you can select your own candy of choice and put it in your candy bento box.

image

My children and I especially enjoy the Champagne Gummy Bears, the Sugarfina Pearls, the Champagne Bubbles, and the Ice Cream Cones.

image

The candies are premium and made with the finest ingredients, sourced directly from artisan candy makers around the globe.

image

The highly curated shop gets Old Fashioned Moms approval for originality and taste.

My son is a devout Republican and staunch political aficionado….which lead us to the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trumps victory speech Tuesday night held at Trumps Briarcliff Manor Golf Club. I have always encouraged my children to be involved and independent with their thoughts as I support them entirely in whatever decisions and choices they make….

The primary season is wrapping up with elections in New Jersey, California, and four other states. Trump told the relatively private crowd, “You’ve given me the honor to lead the Republican Party to victory this fall, and I am going to fight for you, the American people, like nobody has ever fought before. I am not a politician, I am just me. You’re going to see some real great things happen.”

My son, and his friend Evan Sims throughly enjoyed speaking with Al Baldasaro, who is the Chair of the State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs and a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives. He promised to give a tour of the State House when my son is in New Hampshire for Camp this month….very excited was he!

85 g good quality dark chocolate, chopped (3 squares)
2 tsp cocoa

element

Cacao 70 offers 30 different varieties of Hot Chocolate…I ordered the “Peru” while both my children ordered the “Belgian” we were all equally delighted with our choices. Being a family that eats chocolate daily, we are a bit snobbish when it comes to taste…Cacao 70 did not disappoint. I highly recommend a visit, it is fun with attentive service and a full menu.

Butterflies Go Free

A Caterpillar’s Life

Beneath their parents’ colorful wings, butterfly and moth caterpillars are eager to show you that they, too, can be amazing.

Do you remember hunting for caterpillars among the leaves, as a child? Now you can look for some astonishingly diverse caterpillars amidst the tropical plants in the greenhouse. Green, yellow or blue, striped or spotted, covered in wax, hair or spines, caterpillars use all sorts of clever tricks to defend themselves – and impress and surprise you!

Learn about this little-known phase in butterflies’ lives, and share the pleasures of “childhood” with the caterpillars at Butterflies Go Free.

~~~~~

My family and I marveled at the friendliness and comfort the butterflies displayed as they landed ever so gently on our hands. The colorful beauties were a sight to behold and the highlight of the Gardens. This is a wonderful place to expose children to flora and fauna.

On a recent trip to Canada my family and I stayed at The Ritz-Carlton Montreal.

When it opened its doors in 1912, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal set a new standard for luxury. Today, more than 100 years later, the Grande Dame of Sherbrooke Street blends its historic splendor with contemporary design, offering an unparalleled boutique hotel experience in the heart of downtown. The only Quebec hotel to hold the prestigious AAA Five Diamond, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal offers guests:

  • Boutique hotel accommodations blending historic elements with modern features
  • Fine dining at Maison Boulud, featuring modern interpretations of classic French cuisine in an upscale setting
  • Elegant meeting and event spaces that offer flexible seating arrangements and state-of-the-art technology
  • A rooftop and terrace featuring an indoor saltwater pool and stunning views overlooking the city
  • Afternoon Tea, which originated at this downtown Montreal hotel
The personal attention to every detail was extraordinary and the gracious manner in which the staff accommodated us …..sublime. Our suite was perfectly prepared and attended to promptly.
Breakfast by the saltwater pool is a must and a quick visit to the sauna is both healing and reflective as the hot stones restore ones inner spirit.

Afternoon tea in the Palm Court is deliciously elegant and lends itself to an era of refinement and leisure, a time to converse with friends and family in a no rush environment with attentive waiters that will custom make a desired request.

I highly recommend a visit to Montreal and especially as a weekend retreat, there is plenty to do and see and the overall character and feeling of this charming city is  friendly and inviting.

As one of the largest outdoor horse shows in the United States and a premier destination for horse people, the Classic is a much-anticipated stop on the summer tour. Now well into its third successful decade, The Hampton Classic Horse Show is in a class all its own, both in the minds of spectators and horse people alike.

In 2009, the Hampton Classic became only the second horse show ever to receive the status of Heritage Competition by the United States Equestrian Federation.  This prestigious status is reserved for competitions that have been in existence for at least 25 years and have provided for their communities as well as the horse community as a whole in an unprecedented fashion.

A delightful lunch…..

Hudson House is located on the serene waterfront in the village of Cold Spring, N.Y. …I love this area as my country house is nearby and there is so much to do and see. On a beautiful sunny day it is so nice to sit on the porch and have a delicious meal and watch the River boats pass by on the majestic Hudson River.

Master Artist Eduardo Salazar is a world renowned portrait painter, art teacher and connoisseur. His works are held in both private and public collections and I have had a professional relationship with him for the last eighteen years.

His talent is extraordinary and his ability to capture the artistic representation of his subject on canvas remarkable.

There is no better way to document history in the making than with a piece of art that can be handed down from generation to generation and preserving memories.
