Dumbbells & High Heels is an online luxury lifestyle magazine for women in their 30s, 40s and 50s who strive to live their best life.

When we say “luxury” we actually mean: eating at the best new restaurant in town; getting a fresh mani and pedi at the local nail bar; curling up with a great new book; spending the day in pajamas; baking a batch of homemade gluten-free cookies; trying out a new fitness class; catching up with a girlfriend over a latte; sleeping in on a Saturday; trying out a new fancy face cream; spending the day at the spa; shopping for a new pair of shoes, or perhaps, taking part in a solo yoga retreat on a tropical island.
For us, luxury means spending indulging in anything that fills our cups. We believe our audience is comprised of smart, sophisticated, successful, down-to-earth women who want to have it all when it comes to happiness, fulfillment, health and a life well lived.

Therefore, our goal is to provide a credible, reliable resource that not only uplifts and empowers our readers, but also connects us to them through a mutual love of fitness, fashion and beauty.

Whether it’s a new organic juice cleanse, the hottest fitness craze, a great self-help book, a delicious, sugar-free dessert or a life-changing beauty treatment, we’ve got it covered. And we back it all up by putting everything to the test while chatting with industry experts and citing the latest in scientific research.

In addition to providing interesting and newsworthy content, Dumbbells & High Heels also strives to create a sense of community and sisterhood. We believe it is important to foster conversations on real life issues as a way to support and empower one another to become the best version of ourselves.

We also know that you (our readers) are brilliant, busy women, which is why we are so committed to uncovering the facts and delivering them in this reliable, information-packed resource. In a nutshell, we dig up the dirt so that you don’t have to!

On a more serious note, although we know that beauty stems from the inside, we also believe in taking good care of ourselves. When we eat well, exercise regularly, and occasionally trade in our sweats for stilettos, we have the energy, confidence, strength and stamina to accomplish so much more. We sincerely hope that you enjoy our online publication. If you ever have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact us. We’d love to hear from you!

Wishing you an abundance of health & happiness
