This week we’re crushing on Mary Alice Monroe — New York Times bestselling author of 27 books and a favorite author of many of our Women’s Daily Post readers! Her Beach House books are set in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, and against that scenic coastal landscape, she tells the story of the Rutledge family – the bonds between mothers and daughters, tales of class, infidelity and domestic abuse, and of resilience and strength. Summer reads at their best! We have one in our beach bag right now. Mary Alice is also an avid conservationist and she weaves her conservation work into every novel – Bottlenose dolphins, monarch butterflies, shorebirds, and loggerhead sea turtles make important appearances. She is on the South Carolina Aquarium Board Emeritis, The Leatherback Trust, The Pat Conroy Literary Center Honorary Board, Friends of Coastal Carolina and Casting Carolinas Advisory Board. Her website has more information about her conservation…

She is the author of a memoir, Slices of Life: A Food Writer Cooks through Many a Conundrum – a book of recipes and the stories that go with them (the names Emergency Cherry Pie and Beach House Spaghetti give hints to the tales.) Leah is a Baltimore resident and happy to do readings, coaching and teaching at book clubs and events if you contact her.

Our crush this week is Hiba Stancofski! Hiba emigrated to the USA as a young woman escaping civil war in Lebanon and transitioned from an early career in research to teaching beach yoga and mindfulness. Her yoga and mindfulness practices helped her overcome childhood trauma, and she is now using them to help families thrive during the chaos of the pandemic. Tell us a little bit about your background and family I grew up in Lebanon, a beautiful country on the Mediterranean, but left in my early twenties to start a new life in the States after 13 long years of raging civil war. I got my Bachelors degree in Biology from the American University of Beirut, followed by my Masters in Biology from American University, Washington, DC. I then worked in research at Georgetown University, until I moved to Baltimore with my husband, Erik. I worked at the University…

We love when fashion meets function — which is why we’re head over heels for Sand Cloud Towels! Sand Cloud designed its towels to be light, sand-resistant, quick-drying, and soft.

They are focused on creating the best sustainable products in the world. From packaging to products, everything is designed with sustainability in mind. Their towels are made of 100% cotton, so they are known for being super soft. The cotton actually improves with wear, so a few uses and washes will increase your towels’ comfort. With a variety of designs, you’re sure to find one that fits your personality or hey — matches your favorite suit! You can purchase Sand Cloud towels locally at Karma Fashion Boutique in Lutherville.
