Follow Your Forte :: Melanie from Twee Boutique

December 28, 2010 § 1 Comment

We are BACK!!! The holiday season kicked us hard, but we are ready to attack! I know you all missed our Follow Your Forte video on Friday so we’re bringin’ it to you today. And yes, we will still be blogging regular posts. We are having so much fun with the FYF videos, but we will not abandon the fun daily posts either!

Meet Melanie. She’s the owner of Twee Boutique over in the Tower District on the Wishon Row. Remember Frosted Cakery and The SuppotR? Yea, she’s on the same strip as them! You could hit up all these amazing places cuz they’re only a hop, skip and jump away from each other.

We loved spending time with Melanie in her amazing boutique, and you know we couldn’t leave Twee without walking out with a few goodies. Thanks Melanie for your loveliness and hospitality. We had fun!

❤ Dominique

We know we’ve been slacking on the posts, and we do apologize. The holidays get a little outta control, wouldn’t you agree?

So please forgive us and enjoy another Follow Your Forte video.

Meet Jason Donald. He’s a Fresno (technically Clovis) native and he followed his dream of becoming a pro athlete. He plays for the Cleveland Indians and lives in Fresno on the off season. Tune in to hear a little more of his story.

P.S. – We just finished our second round of filming for more Follow Your Forte videos, and they’re gooooooood.

We are having so much fun with our Follow Your Forte section of the blog. We’ve interviewed a handful of people and will be sharing a new FYF video with you every Friday. We are switching our Fan Friday schedule out to Follow Your Forte Friday. However, if you have a place/event you are dying to share with the blog world, we will still accept Fan posts, of course. You can always email us at

Last week we were having trouble uploading the videos to the blog, but I am happy to say, we’ve figured it out! Make sure you check out The SupportR video we posted last week, too! I fixed the post so you’ll be able view the video right on our blog.

Well, that brings me to our next interview, the accessory line, Make Pie Not War. Alana Little is the brains behind MPNW. She’s creative, innovative and has a great story! Her jewelry will make anyone feel fabulous. Just check it out for yourself…

A HUGE Thank You to Pat from Baked Pickles. Become a fan on Facebook!

You may or may not have noticed that we’ve been a little slower with posting things on the home front also known as thee I Heart Fresno Blog. Things have been busy, but in a good way and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Cam and I have been working our little buns off filming videos for our Follow Your Forte section of this blog as well as staking out more local spots for all you wonderful Fresnans. We will be bringing you a Follow Your Forte segment every week starting NOW and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

However, because the holidays are fasting approaching, Cam and I decided to take a little “vaca” from posting regualr posts for the next few days. We’ll be back with regular posts Monday, November 29th. But before we go, we couldn’t leave you hanging.

The SupportR is an awesome BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW sandwich joint in Tower. Meet the beautiful owner, Mary and enjoy listening to her story about turning her passion for food into a healthy business!

Oh, and H*A*P*P*Y* T*H*A*N*K*S*G*I*V*I*N*G*!!! We’ll see you Monday!

We are BEYOND thrilled to bring you our 1st Follow your Forte interview! Our very 1st guest is Frosted Cakery. Frosted Cakery is located in The Tower District on the Wishon Row at 1292 N. Wishon Fresno, CA 93728. They share a space with the new SupportR sandwich shop, and let me tell you– BOTH of these businesses are fabulous.

I Heart Fresno wants to start bringing you inside these businesses so you can hear the stories of the people behind them. We love hearing people share their passions and talents, and when they share them in Fresno?! Well, we “Heart” that even more.

Enough talking from me…check out our video and let us know what you think of Frosted Cakery and our Follow Your Forte segment!

Ok, so Cam and I are SUPER excited to introduce Follow Your Forte to the I Heart Fresno blog. Follow Your Forte will consist of spotlighting people in and around Fresno who are following their heart and passions. We’ll be interviewing local business owners, artists of all kinds, and people who are moving and shaking things up in this city.

Here’s a fun, quick little video we shot downtown after we interviewed our FIRST Follow your Forte guest (make sure you check back soon to see who it is)! Also, a BIG THANK YOU to our buddy, Enrique at the No Network. He’s paired up with us to document our Follow Your Forte adventures!

❤ Dominique

P.S.- Please ignore my yelling…I'm obviously really confused at how a wireless mic works.
