wellness Haute New Opening: Dr. Brad Dobson Dripping Springs Vision Center NEW FAMILY VISION CENTER IN DRIPPING SPRINGS

Dr. Brad Dobson has been practicing in the area for over 15 years now and we are excited to open our second location in Dripping Springs! Our passion is combining state of the art equipment in eyecare and a selection of eyewear that is unique and personalized to the individual. We provide eyecare for both children and adults. Those services range from routine check ups and care of eye infections and injuries all the way to complex contact lens fits and LASIK treatments. A unique service we offer is a non-dilated eye exam where we utilize Optomap Retinal Imaging to replace the dilation at routine visits, making the exam experience much more enjoyable. All of our instruments are the latest technology for making children’s exams simpler and all of those technologies make adult exams even easier. UNIQUE DESIGNER BRANDS

We feature unique brands that are exclusive to our area including Tom Ford, Salt, TOMS and Komono. We also love the classics from lines like RayBan, Costa and Silhoutte. We want our patients to have the most advanced lens technologies with an eye exam that is easy on them. We also believe selecting eyewear should be a fun and unique experience. drippingspringsvisioncenter.com / 512-804-2020 Monday - Friday: 9-6 / @behappyseeclearly

ABOUT COOLSCULPTING

The CoolSculpting® procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely without surgery or downtime*. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet and exercise resistant fat. Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues.

CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. We will develop a customized CoolSculpting® treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. Call us today at 512-923-1071 for your complimentary consultation.

BEE CAVE

beauty & fashion Haute New Opening in Bee Cave: Embellish Nails & Boutique Ten years after opening their first Embellish location in central Austin, UT grads, Lisa McQueen and Wendy Pursch, have opened a beautiful new Embellish Nails & Boutique location in Bee Cave, Texas. The latest outpost of this beloved local business features soaring ceilings, vintage charm and the same great service that’s garnered it multiple “best of mani pedi” awards. WHAT MAKES EMBELLISH DIFFERENT THAN A TYPICAL NAIL SALON?

Because Embellish offers only natural nail care services, you won’t encounter the fumes and dust often noticeable in other nail salons. Additionally, customers love the peace of mind Embellish’s copper pedicure bowls and rigorous sanitation protocols provide. Guests can choose from a rainbow of “5-Free” nail lacquers including boutique line Smith & Cult, CND Vinylux and OPI Infinite Shine. One of the most popular services at Embellish, the Shellac™ gel polish manicure, offers up to 14 days of no-chip wear and a gentle, non-damaging removal process. WAIT, DID YOU SAY THERE’S SHOPPING TOO?

Yes! Embellish’s boutique stocks well-priced women’s apparel, both fashion and artisan jewelry, fun gifts and greeting cards. Multitasking magic! The new Bee Cave Embellish is located in the Uplands Village Shopping Center along with Baguette et Chocolat French bakery, Spruce Salon and Broadway Bank. Walk-ins accepted whenever possible but appointments are strongly recommended. HAUTE OFFER

greatergoodsgroasting.com / @gg_roasting 12005 Bee Cave Rd. Suite 4B / 6:30am - 7pm everyday

Founded in 2015, Greater Goods Coffee Roasters was created by husband and wife team Khanh Trang and Trey Cobb in Austin. It was born of the notion that great coffee can also do good in the community, so each sale of coffee benefits one of four local Austin charities. They offer a wide variety of specialty coffees and teas for retail and wholesale. Find out more at greatergoodsroasting.com and come enjoy a sip at the new cafe location in Bee Cave! 55

One currently undeniable trend on Instagram are images of unkempt, sexy hair. It’s a little bedhead, a little beach babe, and a touch of ‘90s flair. While it may look like your favorite celebrity or runway model just naturally rolled out of bed with this look, think again. It takes effort to look tousled! And that’s where our talented team at Spruce Salon come to the rescue. Our colorists specialize in Balayage – a painted technique that creates those soft, natural-looking highlights. If you’re wanting “Instagram hair”, Spruce has got you covered.

BEE CAVE & LAKEWAY

fashion Catching up with Adorn Boutique Founder, Kim Charlet WHAT EXCITING THINGS ARE YOU WORKING ON THIS YEAR?

In December, we opened our third ADORN Boutique in Waco, so for us this now means dividing our time between 3 locations. We are excited about this store’s clean contemporary design and plan to give ADORN Lakeway & Bee Cave locations a facelift so watch for renovations. A huge part of this year’s plan is to have all of our point of sale systems networked. This will enable customers to make exchanges and use their gift cards at any location. I think this will improve our customer experience at every store. Due to demand we also plan to launch our new ecommerce site in 2018. WHAT’S HAUTE IN THE SHOPS AND YOUR FAVORITE SPRING TRENDS?

For apparel, I’ve seen lots of stripes, polka dots, ruffles, wrap dresses, trousers, camis with cardigans and sporty, athletic looks. Think 1980’s! Leather leaf, acrylic & raphia earrings are trending this Spring & Summer. My favorite trend this season is straw purses and handbags of all shapes and sizes making me dream of the beach! adornaustin.com / @adornaustin

From boutiques to antiques, home goods to pop-ups, and bike shops to cigars, you can find a unique gift for someone else or the perfect splurge for yourself. DINE

Downtown Buda is home to the Tavern on Main, the Texas Downtown Association Business of the Year, well-known for the best tasting food around and live music each week. Brooklyn’s Down South makes for a great date night or friendly happy hour gatherings. If comfort food is more your style, choose from Super Slick’s, Garcia’s or Chavelo’s Mexican restaurants. A staple in downtown Buda, Casa Alde has been around for over 37 years. Main St. Pizzeria & Beer Garden, Buda’s newest addition serves up italian fare to write home about. Round out your savory excursion with cake by the slice at Sweet Cakes 4 U, an old-fashioned soda fountain, milkshake or a famous Rebel Rouser from the Buda Soda Fountain, or simply visit Nate’s Buda or Summermoon Coffee for that afternoon pick-me-up.

| spring 2018

RELAX

In the springtime, Main St. Buda is blooming with live music, Saturday activities, and Sunday morning brunches. Stroll around the beautiful newly designed Buda Mill & Grain Co., gaze at the dozen heritage oaks that line Main St. or take in the historic buildings dating back to the early 1900’s. Book a facial at Buda Med Spa, hot yoga at Willow Gardens Hot Yoga Studio, a community bike ride that begins at Buda Bike Co., or one of our many events happening in and near downtown all spring long.

The vision for this space and it’s role in Buda has been passed through the generations of this family. The repurposed old barns, silos and buildings have been carefully reimagined into a unique gathering space for the community to savor good food and wine, shop locally and meet with friends.

WHY BB SCULPT?

Absolutely LOVE this place!! After experiencing sugaring at BB, I’ll never go back to waxing. Also, the coffee-based spray tans look much more natural and fade away without leaving blotchy marks like the chemical based. The staff and owner are so personable and I’m always treated like one of their “girlfriends”. Can’t recommend this place enough! — Claire Weinheimer, BB client

ABOUT BB SCULPT

Haute Spot El Gaucho Winery elgauchowinery.com / 512.382.0620 Thursday-Friday and Sunday: 12-7 Saturday: 12-8 / 21301 Kathy Ln

If you’re looking to enjoy fine Argentinian wines in a relaxing hill country setting, El Gaucho Winery is the place for you. We are the closest winery to the Austin area, so no need to plan for a long drive. We feature award winning wines from Argentina from two vineyards we own in the famous wine country of Mendoza. We serve fresh delicious food from a Bistro menu and have interactive play areas for the little ones. Our winery in Spicewood is unlike any other place to go in the area. We believe that our customers should be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy a glass of fine wine with their friends and family.

EXPERIENCE ARGENTINE BARBECUE, CHOCOLATE TASTING AND LIVE MUSIC ON SUNDAYS

Bennett and Eugenia Sewell

Argentine Barbecue by Chimichurri ATX

Every Sunday, Rodolfo and his crew offer a variety of traditional dishes from the Argentinian cuisine, but our specialty is the Asado de Campo or simply Asado. This is the most traditional dish in Argentina. It is cooking in its purest form – just wood, fire, a cast iron grill and fine meats. Reservations are required for parties of 6 or more. Chocolate Tasting by My Chocolate

In the tasting room, you will find a beautiful setup of artisan made chocolates available to sample or purchase by local chocolatier, Holli Beckwith who’s shop & kitchen is in Marble Falls. All chocolates are 65% single origin cacao, vegan, gluten free, and use many local spices & ingredients including some she grows in Horseshoe Bay. Holli is at the winery every first and third Sunday for chocolate tastings and wine pairings. UPCOMING EVENTS

April: 2 times a month we will serve dinners on Thursday and Friday May 12th: Paella and Flamenco Festival Easter Sunday: Asado Dinner (fills up quickly!) Check our Facebook & Instagram page for more details and to reserve your spot for these upcoming events.

Moments

Bennett and Eugenia, the owners, have been producing wines from their two vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina since 2007. In June, we will have been open for 3 years. There are plenty of choices with the 11 different wines made from 5 different varietals of grapes. The three most unique and popular wines from El Gaucho are their 2010 Reserve Malbec, a Sparkling wine and Torrontes. This Torrontes is a wine you can only find from Argentina. This April El Gaucho Winery is starting a series of formal and informal dinners held twice a month. The dinners will feature regional chefs and food with a Latin flair. The winery is also launching a wine club with many benefits for members. We invite you to El Gaucho Winery where it is always wine time!!

PHO-LISHA’S, WIMBERLEY

w Sweet So

When people think of Hill Country fare, their mind’s don’t usually think of Asian or Cajun food. But that’s what Wimberley’s first full-time food truck has been bringing to the region for over a year. Owner, Alisha Spencer, is no stranger to doing things her own way. Raised in the bayous of southern Louisiana, she solo-backpacked southeast Asia in her early twenties and decided to bring her love of Cajun and Asian cooking to the Hill Country. Known for her “Phamous Phorrito” (a hybrid of Vietnamese pho and a burrito), she also serves other scratch-made dishes such as shrimp and crab etouffee, green Thai curry, shrimp & grits, and much more.
