Get Spring-fresh at Van Michael Salon in Buckhead

IMG_8690 (1)

It’ time to spruce up your look and get yourself ready for Atlanta’s sunshine-filled spring. Van Michael Salon Buckhead does this and more. With stylists, like Jonathan Mumford, and color techs like Autumn, rest assured you are in the best hands. But right now we have our eyes and face set on Aveda’s latest miracle worker: Tulasāra™ Wedding Masques Overnight.  Wake up to luminous, wedding-day skin every day  with these masques for face and eyes that are formulated to work at night while skin is at rest for brighter skin overnight and firmer skin over time. These two products, one for face and one for eyes are inspired by a  traditional, pre-wedding Haldi ceremony that is still practiced today in India. Performed  for both the bride and groom, a homemade turmeric paste is applied in a thick layer to the face, hands and feet to promote bright, radiant, glowing skin on their wedding day.  While they may have wedding in their name, these are just the perfect skincare product to make us look younger, firmer and well-rested with that wedding-day glow. These are both available at Van Michael Salons.

Cocktail Connoisseurs Take Note: The Traveller Bar is In Town during March


For the month of March, Loews Hotel Traveller Bar stopped in Atlanta as part of its tour across the country. This pop-up bar, constructed from an elevator car pays homage to the history and craft of an authentic antique cocktail.  The Traveller Bar, which is a cocktail concept specifically for the Loews Hotels serves eight cocktails and displays some of the most coveted collector’s edition bartender and cocktail books. The menu includes hand crafted cocktails inspired from “the golden age” according to their website. The bar will be closing shop and heading to Washington, D.C. come April, so hurry and don’t miss the opportunity experience the grand Traveller.
