AS THE SAYING GOES, TIME FLIES WHEN YOU’RE HAVING FUN. And time sure has flown by this year as we can’t believe we’ve put together the final issue of Chesterfield Lifestyle in 2018! It seems like just yesterday we were sitting down to write our January letter to all of you—talking about resolutions and renewal—and yet, here we are, almost time to do it again.   There’s a unique perspective that working in publishing brings. While we certainly don’t want to wish our lives away, we’re always looking toward the future. Whether it’s planning our next issue or developing story ideas for the next year, we’re often already fast forwarded to future months before the current month has even begun.   The fast-paced lifestyle this industry calls for can often make it difficult to really settle down and absorb what’s going on around us and, before we know it, the year is over and it’s time to move forward again.    So this December, we hope you take the time to slow down a little bit. With the holiday season upon us, we hope you make the time to take it all in. Enjoy your time with family and friends, bask in the magic of the winter season, reflect on past memories you hold closely in your hearts and keep the new ones you create in the present for as long as you can.   We’ll take your lead, and we can’t wait to see you next year!

Joe Bizelli

SOME CALL IT ACOUSTIC MAGIC. Joe “The Biz” Bizelli, a 33-year-old singer/songwriter from New Melle, started playing open mic nights in St. Charles coffee houses and performing at a retirement home in 2003. Now he’s working with one of Tennessee’s aspiring country music artists, Cole Sitzlar. After Joe moved to singing at bars, parties, wineries, corporate events and weddings, he eventually played music fulltime and has kept strumming since. “What separates Joe from other solo-acoustic musicians is  his  ability to cover a wide range of new and old music,

Joe's first single, "Follow Me to New Melle," was released on iTunes and YouTube in March 2016. He says songwriting goals consumed him in May 2016 while witnessing some professional writers play at the Bluebird Café in Nashville. “They were so incredibly talented that no one spoke or made a sound while they performed. I knew that night that was exactly what I wanted to do with my life.”

2018 GIFT GUIDE

(CON TI N U ED)

Give Authentic Luxury GIVE AUTHENTIC LUXURY

(L to R): Sue McCarthy, Laura McCarthy Maurice, Diana McCarthy Ford

From jewelry, purses, clothing, belts, shoes and other accessories, the Vault Luxury Resale boutique in Brentwood is a place from which to secure plush gifts that also help community causes. All items sold are clean and in excellent condition, likely less than 2 years old. Clothes are designer labels and items from department stores and boutiques. A unique gift recommendation provided at the shop would be prayer box necklaces, for which recipients whisper into  or write down  intentions to place in the small necklace locket, which is worn close to one’s heart. Boutique founder and CEO Sue McCarthy says they focus as much as they can on locally made products, with examples being the Tru Candle Studio line. These candles are handpoured soy candles in gorgeous vessels. Sue and her daughters were the stars of Resale Royalty, a popular reality TV series produced by celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe that aired on the Style Network in 2013. Sue pioneered the upscale resale business model  and launched the Women’s Closet Exchange in 1991. For more holiday gifts, Sue also recommends artisan and all-natural SammySoap skincare items and products from the Duke Cannon men’s line that donates a portion of proceeds to U.S. veterans. She says they also have new men’s socks that are fun. The Vault provides a way for Sue and her team to help community initiatives for the homeless and those facing dire healthcare issues, such as cancer, leukemia, lymphoma and Alzheimer’s. During October, the boutique provided $20,000 to Operation Food Search, and altogether they’ve donated nearly $200,000 to nonprofit organizations. This year, Sue serves as chair of the Salvation Army’s Tree of Lights campaign. “We’re a small business that gives back in big ways because we want to!” Sue says. TheVaultLuxuryResale.com

Holiday Entertaining and Beyond HOW TO PUT THE ‘SPECIAL’ IN SPECIAL EVENTS ARTICLE JULIE BROWN PATTON | PHOTOGRAPHY EMILY KAPPESSER

ONE OF THE SUREST WAYS TO EXECUTE SMOOTH, SPECTACULAR EVENTS IS TO WORK WITH EVENT PLANNERS. They can save clients time and money while offering creative ideas and solutions. They provide end-to-end executions and pay attention to the details, which allows hosts and hostesses to actually enjoy those same events. ELEGANT EVENTS BY MJ

for negotiating with and dealing with vendors.


Proper event management planning is vital for any successful and safe event. Just ask Mirela Karic and Jasmina Menkovic, who own and operate Elegant Events by MJ. They handle corporate events, weddings, bridal showers and special occasions. “We make our clients' imagination come to life by executing their extraordinary vision. Each event is completely unique and customized to fit clients’ needs from start to finish,” Mirela says. Unique events come from close attention to details. TIPS FOR BUDGETING EVENTS A perfect first step is to determine an event budget and establish its main purpose. Because many people struggle with keeping on-budget due to the lack of prioritizing and being realistic about what’s affordable, Jasmina says a planner is a great way to have a guide for budgets, along with realistic options. “Through honest, detailed conversations, we can find out what’s truly important to be spending money on,” she says. She suggests dividing event budgets into five major categories through a detailed spreadsheet, including items  projected expenses, actual expenses, details and unexpected costs. “Each category should have its own sub-category, such as venue, catering, decor, transportation, entertainment, marketing and event planning fees. Ensure your budget includes service fees, gratuity and taxes,” Jasmina says. At least 20 percent of event budgets should be allocated to the unexpected costs category, she forewarns. To make the most of budgets, Jasmina and Mirela secure quotes from multiple vendors. “Pricing will vary from season to season, but the more details we gather, the more accurate event estimates will be,” Jasmina says. To extend budgets for corporate events, one idea is to ask vendors and industry partners to get involved by supplying products, donations or in-kind services. Ensuring all parties involved in event planning are on the same page regarding budgets is a vital step as well.

Mary Poppins Returns is rated PG and  is suitable for the entire family, so it's just the ticket to put a big smile on everyone’s face!

They join forces with CIA Assassin August Walker (Henry Cavill) to track down Arms Dealer John Lark and his followers, known as The Apostles. This time around, Ethan and his team find themselves racing against time, as their mission, which they have accepted, is nothing less than saving our world from nuclear annihilation! This film also stars Alec Baldwin, Angela Bassett and Michelle Monaghan. Rated PG-13  and clocking in at 2 hours,  27 minutes, Mission Impossible: Fallout is the best Mission Impossible yet! December 2018 | Chesterfield Lifestyle

So Long and Thanks! CHESTERFIELD HUMANE SOCIETY CLOSES ARTICLE JULIE BROWN PATTON | PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY HUMANE SOCIETY OF MISSOURI

EFFECTIVE NOV. 4, THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF MISSOURI'S FACILITY IN CHESTERFIELD VALLEY CLOSED. The closure  included  operations of both the Adoption Center and Animal Medical Center of Mid-America at 17537 Edison Ave. Humane Society of Missouri President Kathy Warnick  says the Humane Society’s board of directors determined the best use of the organization’s human and financial resources in the future was to concentrate on continuing operations of HSMO’s two largest facilities: the Macklind Avenue headquarters in St. Louis City and the Best Buddy Pet Center in Maryland Heights.   "We are very grateful for the dedicated efforts of all of employees, volunteers and donors who  contributed so much to fulfilling our mission in the Chesterfield area for the past 12 years," Kathy says. "We also sincerely appreciate the support of this community in giving loving homes to our animals and patronizing our veterinary facilities." She says they were  fortunate that the organization was  in a position to offer employment elsewhere in the organization to nearly all of the employees based at Chesterfield Valley. Those leaving the organization were offered severance packages.   HSMO is the largest animal welfare organization in Missouri rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for adoptable animals.   50
