Watch Hip New Jersey Hosted from Kendra Scott Short Hills

Watch Hip New Jersey Hosted from Kendra Scott Short Hills

Our newest episode of Hip New Jersey celebrates, well, us! #HipNJ‘s Lisa Marie Latino hosts from Kendra Scott Short Hills to toast to our 5 year anniversary and all the fun things happening in our corner of the Garden State.

Featured segments include:

Caitlin Rutkay, C. R. Interior Designs (Lebanon). With her artistic eye and knack for detail, Caitlin helped transform #HipNJ‘s new office and studio space into a modern mecca of functionality and creativity. She takes viewers through the design process, with help from CJ Office Furniture (Denville) and Platinum Electrical Services (East Hanover).

Shane Skwarek, SF-X.com Small Business Solutions (Manahawkin). As Hip New Jersey grew over the years, the cornerstone of the business needed to follow. Shane, who balances being a stay-at-home-dad with his successful web company, explains how he took HipNewJersey.com to the next level.

Amanda Olsen and Lisa Allen, HTTV (Summit). HTTV (Hometowne Television) was the first “traditional” media outlet to approach #HipNJ about taking our Garden State lifestyle concept and turning it into a half-hour magazine show. This step was just one of many HTTV has taken in recent months to rebrand, and we learn what’s next for the channel.

Kendra Scott Short Hills. #HipNJ could not have picked a better venue to celebrate female entrepreneurship. We learn all about the Kendra Scott brand, and we take you through our 5th anniversary party that featured some of our loyal fans and favorite local businesses, including Stack Happy Sweets (Montville), Squirrel and the Bee (Short Hills), Splurge Bakery (Millburn), Donna Fillweber (Color Street), and Be Mixed.

You can watch Hip New Jersey on HTTV, NJ on AIR or on HipNewJersey.com.
