Alison Crandall

De Nova had the pleasure of sitting down with the beautiful Mrs. Minnesota America 2018, @alisoncrandallstyle to get to know the #WomanBehindTheRobe. “I'm a dreamer who's aspiring to live a bold and joyful life. My husband and littles make my world go round and being a mother and wife is definitely the "title" I am most proud to carry. Along with the many responsibilities of being a modern stay-at-home mom, I wear several other hats as well! I am the current Mrs. MN America 2018 and have a couple side-businesses I run from home.

Sara Goldfine

  De Nova sat down with local entrepreneur Sara Goldfine for our #WomanBehindTheRobe Series to ask what she does in her routine for self-care. "The best form of self-care for me is working out. It allows me to get lost in my self-care, clear my thoughts, plan my day and motivate me to be healthy and balanced." We loved spending time getting to know Sara and how she started @goldfinejewelry . “When I was a little girl, I obsessed over the idea of becoming an innovator in the fashion world.  I've always been interested in the mechanics behind the functionality of an object. When I started designing jewelry, I wanted to figure out a way to create pieces that could be worn beyond the...
