If you know me, you probably know some of my favorite things because I love sharing them with the closest people in my life. I also love hearing about and trying new, fun trends when they pop up in my city! New restaurant? I’m in! New fitness studio? Let’s go! New beauty technique? Yes, please! But we also all know that once you find that favorite “go-to” it is easy to keep going back! For this month’s blog (and partly by popular demand!) I wanted to share a short list of my absolute FAVORITE local Go-To’s! I can’t wait to hear why you love them too!
3700 Market Cafe
This one would not be complete without sharing my favorite daytime and nighttime spots for a delicious meal, creative drinks and overall a great atmosphere which keeps me going back and bringing my friends and family along, too! For breakfast and lunch my favorite spot is the NEW 3700 Market Cafe in Camp Hill! I am SO happy to have this amazing restaurant in the same building as my boutique! It is so easy to pop in there on my way to work or when I can sneak a quick break. Their breakfast menu is filled with so many delicious, healthy & local fresh ingredients and tasty treats to top it all off! Their lattes are delish and perfect to start your day! The staff there are beyond sweet and greet me joyfully every time I go in. You can always tell when the warm and fuzzy comes from the top and I can happily name Market as my #1 Go-To eatery!
***Come visit Hello Gorgeous & 3700 Market on Small Business Saturday to Enter to Win a $25 gift card to both businesses. PS.They are both offering a special coupon for that day as well!***
For date nights, girls nights or just any time I am running around and want to stop by for a great evening meal and a glass of wine, Harvest is my #1 pick! Their menu is HUGE and their drinks list isn’t short, either. They always have a freshly brewed Sangria waiting for me when I arrive to kick things off! I always start with their cheese board. Which includes local cheeses, meats, jellies & fruits. I love so many parts of their menu. The look and feel of Harvest is cozy, chic and modern which I love! Don’t forget the mini desserts at the end! They are the perfect size and are delicious! From birthdays to anniversaries even any-day occasions if someone asks where I want to meet up for a drink and a bite, Harvest is my answer and I LOVE IT!
Glo Skin Care
Every girl knows how critical this one is! As we age, it is so important to protect and maintain our skin. But it also adds another “step” to our self care routine that doesn’t have to be mundane. I am so happy to have met and now call Dr. Carmen Johnson Kitts my friend. Her Medical Spa, GLO Skin Care, is my spot for everything skin! I have had nothing short of fabulous experiences from peels to laser treatments leaving me refreshed and brighter each time I visit. The best part about GLO is the staff and how patient they are when it comes to explaining what each service does and what results I can expect to see and when. I feel like I could hang at GLO all day especially as they continue to add Vitamin treatments and other therapies to their already incredible menu. I know I am safe there with Carmen’s experience and medical background. I literally countdown to “GLO” days and if you end up checking it out you will too!

Owning my own boutique is a lot of work and it often requires taking lots of pictures as new inventory arrives daily so I try to keep my tan all year ‘round. I was so glad to see this brand new spa, Bronzed Bunny, pop up on my news feed! Not only are all of their products organic but they work! I love their rapid spray tan for so many reasons; it goes on evenly and lasts for days. Before Bronzed Bunny I had only heard of sugaring and its benefits. I decided to try it and loved it! My eyelashes are a good length but they are lighter in color and needed a little boost so I scheduled their eyelash tint service and it made my eyelashes pop more than ever! I hope they continue to add services because so far so good! The staff there could not be more friendly, too, creating a fun gorgeous experience I want to go back to time and time again. Schedule your first service today if you have not already!
***Now through the end of the year they are running a Special on Saturdays for $30 rapid tans. Book your buns today @ bronzedbunny.com!***
Over the last few years I have really tried to make getting into shape and my body a priority. Sure it is harder these days being so busy and trying to sneak in “me time” can be a challenge, but our bodies are given to us once so we really do need to take care of them! I have tried a few local studios as I love classes. The energy, the women coming together to motivate each other and the structure of the workout are the main factors I look for before I call somewhere ‘home.’ My new studio is called H2L. I had no idea I would LOVE cycling! Sure it is hard and the pain is real at the beginning, but if you fight for it – like anything – and keep at it, the rewards are amazing! My favorite part about the studio is they offer a wide range of classes: Cycling, Barre, TRX, Tabatas, Pilates & Yoga!
***To book your first class head over to H2LStudio.com where your first class is only $5.***
