I wanted to share a few things that I loved through the month of August. Most of these will transition as a favorite into Fall, but I love creating monthly round-ups! Here's a compilation of my favorite items and places over the past month:
The Counter: Obsessed. Trey and I go here at least once a week and sit at the bar (the "counter). It's close to home but also has the best burger. I always go for the 1/3 pound with Gruyere, greens, and red onions. We usually split a large order of Parmesan Garlic fries too. And if you're really feeling fancy, try a milkshake. If you go as much as we do, sign up for the Counter Card to receive points. Yes, there's a card, and we use it every time!
Juice Land: This is the best smoothie and juice bar that also serves fresh wraps and sandwiches! It's located inside of Black Swan Yoga which is also a great place for hot yoga + it doesn't require a membership. I always go for the Moon Tower here which has almond milk, dates, banana, cacao, and brown rice protein.
Defy Pilates: Defy kicks my butt every time, but I love it! Highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great Pilates studio, great instructors, and classes that won't break the bank. The Humpday Jumpday class on Wednesday is the best calorie burner and has me sore for days. If you're a first-timer, take advantage of their intro offer!
Bronze Bar: I'm new to the spray tan game, but I loved my experience at Bronze Bar. It's an airbrush tan and is customizable to how dark you want to go. I went on a Tuesday for 'Tan Tuesday', and my tan was $25. Not orange at all and is a gorgeous, rich bronze.
Azur West: I've been looking for a great, central hair salon for a few months and finally checked this place out. They nailed my cut and color and were extremely meticulous through the whole process. They took my hair from a brassy, dry texture to a healthy, rich dark brown with zero warmth, which is exactly what I wanted! If you're looking for a new salon, check them out -- I highly recommend Adrianna!
