Spotlight: Cincy Chic

CincyChic logoCandy Coated Reality (CCR) hits the news!! Cincy Chic, an online lifestyle publication for women in the Greater Cincinnati Area, recently published a spotlight story about how/why I created Candy Coated Reality. I was truly honored to be featured in the April 29, 2013 edition – Sorry; it has taken me a while to write about it all.

Cincy Chic (pronounced: shēk or “sheek”) is the only online lifestyle publication for women in the Greater Cincinnati area.

Each week, Cincy Chic publishes a new issue, with a feature story, a fitness Q&A column, a movie column, a “Chic Spotlight” which highlights a newsworthy local woman and five editorial departments in the following topics: health, beauty, fashion, social and career.
