4. What do you find most challenging about running your own business?
I think the answer is simple: Everything. Not the fact that any one task is too difficult, it’s just the fact that, between the two of us, we touch every corner of the business. From, the art itself, to packaging, to shipping, to finance, to PR, to marketing, to customer service – all while things continue to grow as well.
 
5. What is the most rewarding thing about running your company?

Chris and I don’t take many. We skip going out to focus on our dreams. Our friends must think we don’t like them anymore but that’s the price admission. The time we take away consists of trips to the mountain and being in nature. Even then, we are always scouting for more intricate and saturated definitions of what “Living Pattern” is.

Poison Ivy  (We had a feeling on that one 😃)

Going To The Movies In Jupiter Just Got A Whole Lot Better

Growing up in Jupiter we always had the Jupiter Movie Theater as a place to go. It was where we first learned to have our Moms drop us off at the far side of the plaza, so we wouldn’t be seen getting out of her car. Mortifying!! Looking back though, of course our Moms were driving us, we were in middle school. Who did we think we were fooling?? Haha!

But I digress. Having a movie theater was totally awesome. However, over the years it slowly went downhill. Showing it’s age and never being updated. Your feet would definitely stick to the floor, every time. The chairs were gross and over all, it just wasn’t a fun theater to go to. Once the theater at Downtown at The Gardens was built, I never went back to the Jupiter Theater.

That has forever been changed! Guys!! We have a Cinépolis Theater, right here in Jupiter now, and It. Is. AWESOME.

IMG_8459

My husband and I went this past weekend to see Mission Impossible. The theater was really beautiful inside! I felt like we were walking into a really nice hotel lobby.

IMG_8460

IMG_8462Now, arriving early to the movie doesn’t mean you have to wait in an almost empty theater. Pull up a stool at the bar & enjoy a frosty beverage. They even have my favorite, local beer on tap. The Chancellor by TBC! Don’t have time to finish your beer before the show starts? No worries, just bring it in with you!

Cinépolis Jupiter offers two different ways to see a movie.

From their website: “The theater’s “Cinépolis Luxury Cinema” auditoriums offer guests a luxury movie-going experience with fully reclining leather seats and in-theater waiter service and dining with full bar, available at the touch of a button. Guests of the theater’s “Cinépolis” auditoriums can enjoy a premium theater experience with comfortable seating and access to the gourmet menu and full bar in the lobby area.”

We opted for the Luxury Cinema and loved it! Large comfortable chairs that allow you to put your feet up, seat side service and a full menu were features that made our visit very enjoyable.

We enjoyed the chicken fingers & the Chocolate & Carmel Popcorn. They were both very tasty!

We give this theater  Two Thumbs Up! Have you been? Did you like it? Tell me what your favorite thing about it is. If you haven’t been, go now!!

#FindAustinAndPerry

I have been glued to the news about the two missing boys from Jupiter, Florida. With each update I hope upon hope to hear good news. Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen, both 14, disappeared off the coast of Jupiter on Friday and haven’t been seen since. Their boat was found yesterday, capsized off from the Ponce de Leon Inlet.

11796386_740951726051415_6667585942827931083_n

Growing up in Jupiter, I know it’s not a crazy thing for two 14 year olds to head out to the ocean, unsupervised. My little brother growing up was always on the water, with friends. Boating, diving, spear fishing…going to the Bahamas! It’s just how it is in a small beach town. Many kids I grew up with had boats of their own at young ages. And just like Austin & Perry, were very capable of handling themselves on the water.

Sometimes, though, things happen. The ocean is a very beautiful and amazing thing. It can also be very unforgiving. Seasoned Boat Captains can be overtaken by the ocean just the same as anyone else.

Today’s news suggests the boys may have made a floatation device out of their cooler and their life jackets. I’m so relieved that there is still hope. My heart has been slowly breaking, thinking of their families and what they are going through. It’s been phenomenal to watch the community around them come together.  I will continue to hope for a good outcome. I hope you will too.

Hugs to you all. – Nicole

Meet Bianca, of Bianca’s Brazilian Bites

For the first interview on the newly updated blog I’m featuring Bianca. I haven’t met Bianca in real life, but I see her Brazilian Bites everywhere I go, in Jupiter!! Everyone I know that’s tried them, LOVES them! Her Peanut Butter Protein Balls are amazing! I just had to ask her to do an interview. She was so nice and agreed. So without further ado…Meet Bianca!

image4

1. Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Bianca Silveira and I am originally from Brazil. I have lived in So. Fla since May 2000 and I became an American Citizen in 2009 – biggest accomplishment of my life!!!!!! I don’t have any babies myself, but I do have an adorable nephew Gabriel and a niece Bella-Claire. They are 3 and absolutely amazing!! I get to play cool auntie B so we love to spend time together. I was just recently adopted by my boyfriend’s 10 year old beagle. Bailey is such a nice and easy-going dog, although I don’t think there is enough food on Earth to feed her as she is always looking for more, beagles…love them!

2. When did you start the Bianca’s Brazilian Bites brand?
Bianca’s Brazilian Bites has been around since 2010. I always loved to bake with mom when I was a kid growing up in Brazil. I always like to experiment and change recipes (mom didn’t like that so much LOL). As the very active and healthy lifestyle lover that I am, I believed cookies and treats should taste great and not make us feel guilty. I turned my passion into a business and created Bianca’s Brazilian Bites. All natural, gluten-free and non-GMO cookies and treats.

3. Who makes up the Bianca’s Brazilian Bites crew?
We are a local small family business so everyone in the family helps and is part of The BBB Team!

4. What do you find most challenging about running your own business?
Running my own business is not a “piece-of-cookie” The most challenging part is making sure I can run the business while I focus on my full-time job and still devote time to my family, friends & my hobbies.

5. What is the most rewarding thing about running your company?
Seeing its success and how fast we are growing. Seeing people faces and smiles when they see me and my products. Hearing a stranger say “I LOVE YOUR COOKIES” touches my heart and brings me such a rewarding feeling!

6. What do you do on your days off?
Awwwwwww…days off! I sleep in!!!!! Well, I mean, I don’t get up until 7:30 AM or 8:00 AM. I love the outdoors so on my days off you will find me boating, swimming, walking…on a rainy day I head to the movie theaters. I spend quality time with my boyfriend, family & friends, dinning out, having good coffee and great conversation.

image3

7. How do you juggle work & family?
I prioritize my priorities. It may sound silly, but a lot of times I stop and take a deep breath and I and I ask myself “Is this really that important right now”? If the answer is no, I move to more important things. I always remind myself “family comes first”, no matter what.
8. Who is your favorite Superhero and why?
Wolverine 100%!!!!!! He is tough (with a soft side), protects his loved ones and he never dies!!!! (I haven’t seen the last one, hope he is still alive) Plus, he is so attractive!!!

9. Where can we find Bianca’s Brazilian Bites?

We have an online store: www.biancasbrazilianbites.com. Like and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Bianca’s Brazilian Bites are also sold at 11 different local locations:
Tri Bike Run Sports – Juno Beach

10. Is there anything else you would like is to know?
