Connecticut’s Best Lifestyle Bloggers (According to TLV)

Connecticut: It’s a small state with big style. Chalk it up to our location smack in the middle of New York and Boston, our uber-chic residents like Tommy Hilfiger, Candace Bushnell, Graydon Carter, and Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman, or our designation as the birthplace of preppy style, but you’ll find no shortage of chic here. Of course, we can’t discount some of our state’s newly minted style-setters; the lifestyle bloggers who have gained hundreds of thousands of loyal followers over the last five years and have taught us all a thing or two about what it means to live in style.

The Zhush. We’ve been fans of Sue de Chiara’s popular design blog, The Zhush, for years, so we were thrilled when she and her family made the move from New York to Connecticut last year. The best part about welcoming her to the state has been following along as she decorates her new property. Check out the posts here.

Quintessence. If you love interior design, you’re probably already a loyal follower of Stacey Bewkes and her blog, Quintessence, which has been included on “best blog” lists by Domino, Traditional Home, the American Home Furnishings Alliance, and of course, The Local Vault. 🙂

Greenwich Girl. Of course, we can’t forget our own hometown hero, Laura McKittrick of Greenwich Girl. She has single-handedly been chronicling everything from the best restaurant openings, to top boutique sales, to new fitness classes in Greenwich and the larger New York City area over the last few years, and we can’t get through a day without checking her site.

StyleCusp. If you love a good #OOTD post in your Instagram feed, you’ll want to follow blogger Marissa Meade of StyleCusp stat. Her blog and social media accounts chronicle the perfect outfits to wear almost anywhere in and around Connecticut, from shopping in downtown Westport, to sitting in the front row of New York Fashion Week, to relaxing on the beaches of Newport.

Lauren McBride. French country charm (that’s her living room in the image at the top of this post), an adorable family, and a knack for DIY; these are just a few of the things we love about Lauren McBride and her eponymous blog, but she also has great content in the realms of beauty, fashion, and motherhood, too.

What do you think of our list? Did we miss any of your favorites?

  1. [url=https://www.tcsindustry.com/pro/Liothyronine_sodium_55-06-1_t3_for_weight_loss_usage_and_formulation.html]liothyronine[/url] is a manufactured form of the thyroid hormone triiodothyronine (t3). it is most commonly used to treat hypothyroidism and myxedema coma. it is generally less preferred than levothyroxine. it can be taken by mouth or by injection into a vein.

    side effects may occur from excessive doses. this may include weight loss, fever, headache, anxiety, trouble sleeping, arrythmias, and heart failure. use in pregnancy and breastfeeding is generally safe. regular blood tests are recommended to verify the appropriateness of the dose being taken.

    liothyronine was approved for medical use in 1956. it is available as a generic medication. a month’s supply in the united kingdom costs the nhs about gb?247 as of 2019. in the united states the wholesale cost of this amount is about us$22.40. in 2017, it was the 252nd most commonly prescribed medication in the united states, with more than one million prescriptions.

    medical uses
    liothyronine is a generally less preferred option to levothyroxine (t4) for people with hypothyroidism. it may be used when there is an impaired conversion of t4 to t3 in peripheral tissues. the dose of liothyronine for hypothyroidism is a lower amount than levothyroxine due it being a higher concentrated synthetic medication. about 25 µg of liothyronine is equivalent to 100 µg of levothyroxine.

    in thyroid cancer or graves’ disease, ablation therapy with radioactive iodine (131i) can be used to remove trace thyroid tissue that may remain after thyroidectomy (surgical excision of the gland). for 131i therapy to be effective, the trace thyroid tissue must be avid to iodine, which is achieved by elevating the person’s tsh levels. for patients taking levothyroxine, tsh may be boosted by discontinuing levothyroxine for 3–6 weeks. this long period of hormone withdrawal is required because of levothyroxine’s relatively long biological half-life, and may result in symptoms of hypothyroidism in the patient. the shorter half-life of liothyronine permits a withdrawal period of two weeks, which may minimize hypothyroidism symptoms. one protocol is to discontinue levothyroxine, then prescribe liothyronine while the t4 levels are falling, and finally stop the liothyronine two weeks before the radioactive iodine treatment.

    liothyronine may also be used for myxedema coma because of its quicker onset of action when compared to levothyroxine. use for the treatment of obesity is not recommended.
