FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- A new county-wide blog offering information on food, fashion, fitness and "fun" launched Monday, Jan. 9.
"Unlocking Fairfield" by Beverley Canepari and Lora Karam, who have run "Unlocking Litchfield" since 2015, have expanded to the area with what they call their "sassy and sophisticated site" featuring businesses and people in the area along with celebrity interviews, “At Home With” segments, getaways, and more.
Canepari is the writer, crafting into words the duo’s experiences at various locations while Karam takes the photos. The professional photographer's work has appeared in OK!, Huffington Post, and Us Weekly among others.
“The best part of what we do is connecting businesses with new customers, learning more about the people in our communities, and encouraging our readers to stop in at the places they’ve probably driven by a thousand times, but never actually visited,” explained Canepari.
“Plus we’re all about being hands on and trying new things. And food. We love food!” added Karam.
Karam, in fact, was born in Danbury and raised in Bethel. She graduated from Bethel High School and works full time in Norwalk at Theatre Projects Consultants . Canepari is from Scotland but has family in Fairfield County. Both presently live in Litchfield County.
Since launching their Litchfield site, they said they've had many requests to head down to Fairfield County, they finally acquiesced. What makes their site different - and what they say they get the most compliments on - is their fun and entertaining way they highlight businesses. Basically like two friends talking to you who love to explore and try everything. "We also love to get to know the business owners personally," they told Daily Voice.
The two are also planning a "Getaways" segment to give readers easy-to-get-to weekend ideas.
"Unlocking Fairfield is a fresh sophisticated point of view presented in a beautiful format with stunning photography," said Adam Broderick, a salon owner in Ridgefield and Southbury. "It's perfect for when you want to sit back and relax."
