Rediscovering Atlanta's Hidden Gems.

Since moving back to Atlanta from Mexico City last year, it’s been amazing to rediscover the city with fresh eyes.

Here are some of my (Debra's) favorite spots.

Michael Stars.

My weekend wardrobe is pretty much exclusively Michael Stars tees (and Paige jeans!). I love the casual-chic vibe of Michael Stars tops and ever changing array of colors and styles. Best of all, their tees are sized “one-size-fits-most”, which makes shopping-- and gift buying-- a breeze.  Their new store in Ponce City Market is a must-visit.

Kimball House.

Oysters are having a moment, have you noticed? Located in a former train station with eclectic, old-timey decor, Kimball House is a great place to enjoy craft cocktails and oysters before, say, a show. We love to sit at the bar to chat with the bartenders who are always full of personality and Southern hospitality.

Urban Body Studios, Ponce de Leon Place.

As a working mom of four, I like my exercise sessions to be super efficient. For me, pilates has always done the trick -- and Urban Body Studios has been my go-to for years. It’s a beautiful studio and the teachers have amazing technique.

Wax Atlanta.

Proprietor (and COLOUR client!) Myka Barbato has created a gorgeous retreat in Old Fourth World for all our beauty needs. There’s Buff Nail bar, Blink Brow Bar, and of course, expert waxing leaves no, um, detail overlooked. We always discover something new here, since Barbato is the goddess of Boho-Chic, curating indie, non-toxic lines that just happen to look amazing on our countertops.

What are your favorite discoveries, Atlanta ladies?

Colourfully yours,
