After a successful and well-attended first installment of “A Life You Love–A Candid Conversation for Women,” organizers answered the overwhelming request to keep this conversation going and dig deeper into the topics that women deal with in their modern and busy lives.

On Wednesday, March 28, Lori Fields, LCSW and Melly Bonita, entrepreneur, will lead the second installment of their chat, A Life You Love, on the concept of doing it all versus doing what matters most.

Fields is a licensed clinical social worker, entrepreneur and personal development coach. With over 15 years of experience as a clinical practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from NYU and a background in studying psychology and human potential, she is highly regarded in the field of women’s empowerment for her expertise in helping women live their most powerful and purpose driven life.

Bonita is Stella & Dot stylist and inspirational business coach. She ranks as one of Stella & Dot’s top salespeople and recruiters in North America. She holds a seat on the company’s “Style Council,” an advisory board of stylists that consults on concepts and designs for future collections. She’s also a licensed Zumba instructor and uses dance to lead and inspire women to achieve their personal fitness goals. Joy and confidence are her favorite accessories.

The event will be held at the Wilton Congregational Church and topics will include managing guilt, how to have an easier time making decisions, and the driving force behind having your life look and feel the way you want. The evening is sponsored by Blue Star Bazaar, a women and children’s boutique in Wilton dedicated to helping women look and feel their best.

“The response from our first chat was overwhelmingly positive and there is obviously a desire for women to talk about these things, in an environment that feels encouraging and safe,” Bonita says.

“We knew we had to offer it again and we are thrilled to continue to bring these topics to the table so that women can feel empowered by their choices and happy with their lives, which will have an even bigger impact on our community,” adds Fields.

A variety of women attended the first event, including stay at home moms, entrepreneurs and women who are in a transitional phase and trying to decide what to do next. They found the topics to be universally relatable to all, as several attendees shared in their feedback about the experience:

“After spending a morning with Lori and Melly, I felt a release of stress and a renewed focus. Permission not to be perfect which ultimately made my week more productive (and happier). A little perspective from these two ladies goes a long way. More please!”

Jean Gordon, Personal Stylist & Closet Organizer

“After attending the women’s chat, I have had a total mind-shift about truly prioritizing what is most important to me and not feeling guilty about it. We can be so hard on ourselves and being in a safe place with like-minded people who encourage you that it is okay to focus on what is best for you without judgment is exactly what I needed.”

Marie Demasi, Level V Executive Consultant, Rodan + Fields
