Matilda’s Boutique Plus Pietro’s On The Ocean Deliver Emotional Wellness


Dear Wellness Seekers,

Matilda’s Boutique Plus Pietro’s On The Ocean Deliver Emotional Wellness reminds me of why we now live on the Treasure Coast of Florida. Spanista openly extols the virtues of our seaside lifestyle. The atmosphere here is very relaxed yet refined without being pretentious. In fact, it is notable that President Obama made a trip from Washington DC for a long weekend to play golf at one our exclusive courses for that very reason – it is great place to really chill out – solo or with friends and family. We locals experienced little disruption with the exception of skies visibly active with military aircraft protection circling the golf course when the President was at play with local influentials.

This weekend I had the opportunity to take a welcomed stroll through our quaint village of Stuart, Florida where there are many one-of-a-kind shops and eateries along the waterfront. One of my favorite shops is Matilda’s Lifestyle Boutique. It is a well curated store capturing the essence of coastal living that appeals to Spanista. To me there is nothing like the tactical satisfaction of shopping where you can lose yourself in time – the real deal versus virtually to browse, be inspired, touch and feel  anything that attracts us while chatting up the proprietor!


Matilda’s Lifestyle Boutique has been my go to place since we moved into our new home. Our backyard patio and pool area have become a great source of fun. I find I am always searching for ways to express my personal style when entertaining at home in this great space. Special pieces add to the experience for our guests. Seeing family and friends enjoy the encounters with a special themed presentation created for them brings me great joy – I feel the rush of endorphins that is most rewarding. Do you have a unique go to boutique where you can find treasures that add value to your life? If not Spanista suggested you find one – you won’t regret it. Get to know the owner as that is part of the fun!

Churning up a thirst and appetite for something lite in the summer heat after our shopping excursion, we took a leisurely drive over two bridges with beautiful views of the glistening waterways to Hutchison Island. Along the long beach drive one can not resist opening the car windows to take in salt air with the air conditioner full blast. Our destination is Pietro’s On The Ocean.  This is a primo location with uninterrupted ocean views where you can watch the surf role in while you sip your favorite libation and enjoy luscious fresh fare. Pietro’s On The Ocean helps you feel like you are far away from the hectic, unpredictable world – especially true on Hutchison Island during the summer. Viewing the ponds when you arrive is so relaxing. My choose of lobster bisque with sherry and dish of choice, the  goat cheese salad was very satisfying.


Matilda’s Boutique Plus Pietro’s On The Ocean Deliver Emotional Wellness make for a perfect getaway duo. A few hours of bliss doing simple things with people you love is the essence of joyful living. Such devoted time nurtures you with Spanista Style Emotional Wellness. Perhaps this summer you might consider grabbing someone you love for an Emotional Wellness Day?  It is easy, fun and so rewarding for the soul. Please share your day away to indulge in summer’s sweetness – love to hear from you!

To Your Self Care Journey To Joy,
