What’s New & Haute at Hall Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center

Hall Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center is recognized in the Austin area as a leader in the aesthetic and cosmetic field. Backed by our onsite medical director with over 20 years of experience, Dr. Jeffrey Hall, and our highly educated team of providers work diligently to provide an elite level of care in our posh, state-of-the-art facility. Dr. Hall, our board-certified plastic surgeon, is committed to thorough research of new technology prior to making it part of the services we offer. The newest technology that we are proud to introduce into our treatment line-up is BodyTite and FaceTite by InMode. These modalities give options to patients who desire skin tightening and contouring to the areas of the face and body, that may not necessarily want to undergo a full tummy tuck or facelift. Using BodyTite and FaceTite has shown to be a true game-

Wellness Services with Master Nutritionist, Natalie Collier

As our on-site medical director, Dr. Hall firmly believes in the results shown from combination therapy, and encourages patients to meet with our on-site (masters nutritionist) Natalie Collier before, during, and sometimes instead of seeking out cosmetic procedures. Referring patients to the wellness portion of the practice to make food and lifestyle changes instead of moving forward with surgery, gives a snapshot into Dr. Hall’s true character and belief in always doing the right thing in the best interest of the patient.

I am thrilled to be on the Haute Finds team and can hardly contain my excitement for this Fall issue! The fall to me is not just a season but a feeling. It is the time I am most inspired to seek out new experiences, make new discoveries and even curate a few gatherings of my own at home. This issue I am sharing these new experiences and discoveries with YOU!

The Hill Country is special for many reasons but there is one in particular I am focusing on - Breweries! I am highlighting 7 breweries in or near your neighborhood and giving you all the reasons why you should venture out and explore one or all of these this season. I am also revealing a very exciting new discovery BUDA, Texas! You probably know of Buda but what you may not know is how this sweet little historical town is shaping up to be your next go-to day trip destination. Be sure to read all about it! Lastly, we are kicking off this upcoming hosting season with the debut of our “Gather & Celebrate” series, your haute guide for entertaining. Here you will find amazing local vendors who will help you curate a unique memorable event, be it a grand celebration or intimate gathering. Cheers! Julie

Haute New Opening: Buda Mill & Grain Co. budamillandgrain.com / 512.295.2693 / @budamillgrain / 306 S. Main Street

Located in historic downtown Buda, Dodi Ellis and her son, Saenger Ellis, repurposed old barns, silos and buildings into a unique gathering space for the community to savor good food and wine, shop locally and meet with friends.

You have been very intentional about the curation of this space. Tell us

We wanted to create a tenant mix that keeps people coming together in Buda - whether gathering with friends for cocktails or coffee at Nate’s, going to hot yoga classes, meeting up for a Saturday ride at Buda Bike Co., finding the perfect outfit, getting styled at Salon One12, exploring art at Assemblage CCG or indulging in a tasty treat at Sweet Cakes - we hope BM&G will be a place where people will come and stay awhile!

Tell us about the history of this property. How long has the Mill & Grain been in your family?

Buda Mill & Grain has been part of Buda’s collective memory dating back to 1890’s when a committee of local Farmer’s Alliance members founded the first cotton gin in Buda. Taking care of a piece of Buda’s history was really important to my mother, Gay Dahlstrom, whose father, Cecil Ruby, purchased the Mill in 1963. She was part of the revitalization until her passing in 2014. We continue Gay’s vision of protecting the past and re-interpreting what the Mill can offer the surrounding community.

Tell us about your vision for the future of the Mill & Grain.

| fall 2017

We keep saying, we’re looking back and moving forward. The mill was traditionally zoned industrial and we’ve held onto the original footprints and maintained the industrial aesthetics with a modern interpretation. BM&G has withstood the test of time. The current renovation will ensure that the property sustains it’s place in Buda’s history as a destination with the intention of bringing the surrounding community together. Buda is a great small town and it’s only getting better!

Haute Spot in Wimberley: The Quarter Shops 14015 Ranch Road 12

“Big Daddy”

Located on the beautiful banks of Cypress Creek, Angela Battaglia, owner, shares her love for The Quarter Shops. It’s like Central Park in downtown Wimberley to shop, sip wine, eat lunch and relax.

For unique clothing, jewelry and home decor On A Branch and The Farm Loft are must stops. New to The Quarter Shops is Gold Dust Boutique featuring ornate carved buffalo skulls from Indonesia, handmade jewelry and artisan baby clothes. For handmade soaps sugar scrubs, body creams and all things luxurious, Circa Soap Apothecary has you covered!

The Quarter Shops has been through a lot of transformation over the

| fall 2017

years. Tell us about it.

In 2005, I was a tenant selling antiques and the opportunity came up to purchase The Quarter Shops so with my love for Wimberley and vision for bringing more creativity and shops that are truly different and unique to the area decided to buy it in 2008! We’ve seen our challenges with two floods within 6 months of each other, the Memorial Day and Halloween floods. We have now recovered and excited about this special place we’ve created that is like nothing else in the downtown area.

Wimberley is home to the most beautiful Cypress Trees towering above. Who should we look for when we visit?

Make sure to take in “Big Daddy”, a 1000 year old Cypress Tree that is wondrous to look at and has become our proud landmark!

La Cruz de Comal Winery, Canyon Lake

Fall Creek Vineyards, Driftwood

Tasting Room Hours

Nestled in the foothills of Canyon Lake, you will find a small tasting room made of stone and cedar timber that will take you back in time. Winemaker, Lewis Dickson, has created a space of his own amongst the Texas wineries with his old european style wines made only from Texas Hill Country Grapes. Lewis is serious about creating small productions of real wine that is truly natural with absolutely no tannins, sulfites or any other additives added in the process! While you’re in the area, Lewis highly recommends Stahlman’s at Bear Creek a few miles down the road for grabbing a picnic before heading to the winery! If you’re looking for haute dinner spot, check out Gennaro’s Trattoria.

Right across the road from the famous Salt Lick BBQ is Fall Creek Vineyards, a beautiful winery with several outdoor patios and spaces to gather with friends and family for wine tasting and light bites. Their Fall Creek GSM Terroir Reflections 2014 was a double gold winner at the San Francisco International and touted one of the best wines produced in Texas to date!

Bee Lavish Vintage Rentals Shares Haute Tips For Entertaining beelavish.com / @beelavishvintage / 512-944-4024 / 705 West Hwy 290

HELLO from Bee Lavish! We are a rental company that uses a collection of vintage and modern furniture pieces and decor to bring character to any celebration! In Austin and the surrounding area we are always buzzing around furnishing corporate events, parties, baby showers and of course, weddings. Working with planners, designers and photographers we love to see our pieces come to life just as they did in this shoot at Laguna Gloria. We would love to help you style your next event for this upcoming holiday season. At Bee Lavish we offer furniture for hire, china, glassware and decor to make your gathering stand out from the rest. Our tips for entertaining... GRADIENT COLOR

We tend to think browns and oranges for fall. A slight variation in sage green and light gray tones flow really well and show off the softer side of fall especially when blended with natural elements. BRASS CANDLESTICKS

Something about our brass candlesticks feel so fall. They bring a rich color and character to any table and make a statement where you really don’t need much else. TAKE IT OUTSIDE

Whether gathering at home or at a beautiful venue - make it an indoor/ outdoor affair. Find a nook in your backyard, place your tables under the trees, make it a unique experience. Fall in the hill country is the perfect weather to get your guests out, and the season a time to inspire a bit of whimsy.
