FYI:

Faith’s *You’re in-the-know* Info

Faith Bennett

Founder, Publisher, Editor And that is no Fool’s joke! This is the I t’sfirstApril! full month of spring! And we are feeling

motivated. We are beginning to see blooms from the rain (It’s #National Garden Month!), and lots of baby animals (Check out our Social Animal Calendar!), as we celebrate Easter (See our Social Spirits Calendar for other religious observances!) We are reminded of how precious and fragile Earth is, celebrating Earth Day on the 22nd, while respecting her every day. (Our Social Calendar of Special Days is always full!) Just a reminder, we launched our Quarterly: SBM Seasonably Social, Spring Issue, last month. Our Monthly and Quarterly serve two different purposes. This Monthly is more portable and meant to be used as a daily resource to help you celebrate and commemorate each day in a special way, by keeping you In-The-Know while On-theGo. You will also enjoy the monthly Social Soles interview (This month’s interviewee is making sure that Pittsburgh celebrates Earth Day!); Fun, Fashion, and Food (Check out our April Merch!); and other monthly regulars; in addition to business listings and postings that are here to help you pull your plans together into a Themed Event! Whether you are on a romantic date, out on your own, with friends, spending time with your parents, or kiddos, … You name it, we thunk it! 

The Quarterly grew from this Monthly, as an answer to the request for MORE! We have always maintained - a holistic approach to Lifestyle, with a great respect for Mother Earth. A “Use Less – Live More” Approach, and so began our digital publication to stay GREEN, while providing content in a way that offers Mobile Ease and allows for Social Sharing. We have VERY BUSY Social Media Lives. When we were asked for more, we gave it great thought, to provide Print, along with Digital, while staying conscious regarding consumption. While our Monthly is more “Portable and On-the-Go”, the Quarterly is more “Sit Down and Enjoy the Show”. So, when you get yours - please, take a seat and enjoy Social Circle, Social Seen, Social Animal, Extended Social Soles, (you will meet Ronda Zegarelli, president of Acrobatique Creative - here), a Triple Serving of Fun, Fashion, and Food (You will love our Spring Fun with some pieces from our Social Butterfly and Yinz Collections included here.) There’s something for everyone! Social Psychology, … and from there, look forward in Social Expectations! Until you’re ready to sit and stay - Enjoy all that is packed in here, and Get Going! Stay Social with us daily across Social Media platforms, so you NEVER miss a thing! To (y)our April being nature-ally BEAUTIFUL!

Faith

This Portable Planner includes our 14 Special Social Calendars for April. Check our website for even more ways to commemorate each day! Check back next month for May!

Interview by Kiley Fischer with Introduction by Faith Bennett

Rnda Zegarelli President, Acrobatique Creative

T

he Social Soles interview series is based on the saying, “You don’t really know someone until you have walked in her shoes.” We thought it would be interesting to begin each interview asking our guest to bring a pair of shoes that are significant to her. They can be a pair of ballet slippers she wore during her years as a dancer; The shoes she wore the day she first saw an Audrey Hepburn film; The first pair she wore on stage; The ones she wore the first year Pittsburgh Earth Day brought the city’s celebrations together; A pair we would have never guessed...What shoes will she bring? We associate shoes with memories: good and bad. The question steers the path of the conversation. This route will show us a side usually not seen in the one we are talking with. A more personal side. We are excited to see in which direction we are lead – by the choice in footwear and the memories stirred. Come. Let’s take an elegant and classic walk… April is when spring truly starts to take hold and the green of the world starts to make its return. It’s also when the world comes together to celebrate Earth Day and to support environmental protection. We should take time to mention Rachel Carson’s homestead is just outside of our beautiful city, and if you are any bit the environmentalist, you know why we had to shout out! It’s been generations since Pittsburgh was known as a dirty steel town, and P G H sure cleans up nicely! In Pittsburgh, Earth Day is not just a day on the calendar, it’s a city – wide celebration “dedicated to educating, inspiring, and celebrating sustainability in the region”. The signature event highlights the sustainability leaders of the area and the ways the city has changed and evolved. Keeping all of that in mind, we knew exactly who we needed to talk to for April’s Social Soles: Ronda Zegarelli, a native Pittsburgher and leader of Pittsburgh Earth Day.

Social Butterfly Magazine: Tell me about the shoes that you brought. Ronda: My shoes are ballet slippers. Not real ballet, but Audrey Hepburn ballet. The reason why they’re my favorite is because Audrey Hepburn, to me, is my idol and she epitomizes style and goodwill and giving back and classics. I’m a lot funkier than Audrey Hepburn but her core values have always been important to me. I have loved her and her movies and her style and what she represents. For me, the memories of watching her in “Funny Face” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “Charade” and all of her good movies just makes me feel better about myself because she’s inspirational


to me. I didn’t want to show off my rock ‘n roll boots because at this stage in my life, I want to be able to feel like I have something that is functional, but makes me feel confident. I brought a quote from Audrey Hepburn because they asked her about ballet flats and she said, “Heels can bring you pain, but a ballet flat will never hurt you.” I just love that because I really feel like when I’m walking through downtown, I’m representing my company well, but that I’m also feeling really good. SBM: You’re talking about what she projects, and then you look at something like Earth Day and they really do fit together. Ronda: It’s about giving back. They’ve been doing Earth Day in Pittsburgh since the 70s. We wanted to brand the city locally, regionally, as a city that is a leader in sustainability. When I went to the office of Mayor Peduto and said we would like to have a city-wide celebration of sustainability, he got behind it because he felt like that’s great that somebody wanted to take everyone hosting Earth Day events – not just ours – throughout the city, and host them for free on pittsburghearthday.org. We offer that because not everybody can be a sponsor, not everybody is downtown where we curate our events, but we want people to all be recognized, not just if they’re a sponsor. We’re able to do this because we have wonderful sponsors. Some of our programming is artistic, but a lot of it is really the core of what we’re doing in this city to be leaders. On Thursday, we always do a fashion show at the Fairmont called Ecolution. We work with Richard Parsakian who is from Eons – he’s an amazing man – he is the curator

of the fashion show. He works with the Izzazu Salon and Spa. We came together and started working with local artists and asked them to use material to make costumes. We had people last year who made costumes out of bubble wrap, a costume out of filters. We did a runway show at the Fairmont, which is a very sustainable hotel. This will be our third year working with them and they’ve been an excellent partner. On Friday morning, we’ll be doing a business breakfast at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. This is our third year working with them as well. This is kind of the real deal – this is the sustainable leaders including Grant Irvine, the Sustainability and Resilience Officer in the Mayor’s office. He is an excellent speaker. We have leaders from Pitt Ohio, from WindStax, from UPMC Health Plan. Sustainability isn’t just about business, it’s about wellness. UPMC Health Plan has a great wellness program, they’re leaders and one of our awesome sponsors. The backdrop to the breakfast is the city and it’s really lovely, looking at the stadiums. We do a food truck roundup. This year it will be closer to Mellon Square Park. We already have 12 food trucks signed up. We’ll also be doing programming in Market Square, we have some really exciting things that are in the works. That’ll be Friday and Saturday. There will be music, arts, entertainment, education.

Pittsburgh to be recognized. I’m born and raised here. My husband is also my inspiration. He’s in the movie and film business and recently relocated to Pittsburgh and he just can’t believe what is going on with the city and the foodie community and technology. I’m very proud to be a Pittsburgher and I wanted to recognize the leadership because I didn’t feel like anybody was culminating all of these businesses and saying, “Let me showcase you and how you’re making a difference.” Going back to Audrey Hepburn and why these shoes, my business partner and I want to make a difference. That’s why we decided we wanted to take on Pittsburgh Earth Day. I know in my heart this is the right thing to do. We also have a really exciting new program we’re introducing this year called Earth to Table. You have Farm to Table, but now we’ll have Earth to Table. We’re going to be calling out to restaurants to work with us and the team at sustainable Pittsburgh to work on highlighting one of their dishes or cocktails during the weekend of Pittsburgh Earth Day. We’re asking them to highlight something organic or locally sourced. They can pick whatever they want and we’ll highlight it on our website. We’ll link to their restaurants and we’re branding that Earth to Table. That’s going to be a cool new part of the event.

We’re excited because we have a new event with PNC at the Tower at PNC Plaza. That’s exciting for us. This year, they’ve generously offered their use of their new James E Rohr Auditorium to host a speaker. They’re the most sustainable green bank building in the world. It’s a cool opportunity. SBM: It sounds like this year is going to be amazing. Ronda: It’s going to be really, really awesome. We’re excited. We wanted

SBM: Where did all of your interest in Earth Day come from? It sounds like it’s something that’s really close to your heart and that you’re really passionate about. Ronda: We have all of these leaders and I love seeing the city move forward and thrive. Pittsburgh Earth Day is the brand, but under that, we’ve taken on some subthemes. One of them is Steel to Sustainable and we want to showcase how we’ve continued to progress. When my husband moved here, he thought it was still a steel town. He thought it was still this dirty, dusty city and he was blown away at what we were doing in sustainability and technology and food. He just had no clue. That continued to reinforce that we need to tell this story of this city. That’s where our passion came from, was making sure that we got the recognition we deserved as a city. We wanted to be all-inclusive. We don’t want anyone feeling left out. The Pittsburgh Earth Day website is where anybody can list. We’ll support

anybody that wants to give us content.

Ronda: They would be my father’s.

SBM: With so much going on, what kind of memories do your ballet flats have for you?

SBM: Why is that?

Ronda: I studied ballet briefly at the Pittsburgh Playhouse and I think it represents culture and the arts, which is really my true heart and soul. I’m a musician, I’m a singer/songwriter, so it invigorates my creative spirit. When I think of ballet flats, I think of dancing and art and beauty. For me, the memories are watching Audrey Hepburn. She’s been my inspiration of style. SBM: What kind of stories would they tell to you, to anyone? What would they say? Ronda: They would tell me that sometimes, simplicity is elegance. Simplicity is classic beauty. Beauty can be understated and simple, it doesn’t have to be flashy. SBM: If you could walk in anyone else’s shoes, whose would they be? Would they be Audrey’s?

Ronda: He just sent me a text today that said, “We’re soulmates.” He’s cool. He’s elegant and classic and he walks the walk that he talks. I am a lucky girl. I changed my signature line this year to say, “With gratitude,” and that is truly what means something to me. (She pulls up the message.) That’s the quote from my dad: “You are my soulmate, we are one. Love, dad.” He’s 80 years old and he’s cool. I just bought him a sweater for Christmas from the John Varvatos store in Boston and they said, “Is this for your husband or your son?” and I said, “No, it’s for my father.” They said, “Your father?” I said, “He’s 80 years old,” and showed them a picture and said, “he’s cool.” Pittsburgh Earth Day will take over the town April 20 – 22.

A Fresh Approach to Lifestyle We believe that things have gotten so specialized that this hyper-focus has become an inconvenience. We suggest going back to a holistic approach: One Social Life with many dimensions. We believe that every individual has more than one interest and is part of a larger network... A college student may want to plan for a weekend date, but may also need to plan for a parent’s visit, all while drawing an activity plan for the children she babysits. She could find everything she needs all in one place: SocialButterflyMagazine.com For somewhere to go, our Extensive Social Calendar of Events; for a theme to celebrate or commemorate, our Special Social Calendars.

One Source for “all things social” for EVERY age and interest.

Social Butterfly, Pseudo Celebrity Our mascot, Social Butterfly, a pseudo celebrity and steward of our brand follows our Social Calendar and attends events. Fans won’t want to miss a photo op to be SEEN and SOCIAL with this Butterfly. She made her debut on the run way at Pittsburgh Fashion Week 2015. Followers are curious to see which events she attends, and what she wears. She is styled per event: Her wing orbits, antennae tips and actual wardrobe are changed to be themed for each occasion.
