I love to share tips on keeping your skin healthy. With so many outdoor events coming up in Marietta we need to protect our skin with sunscreen and get that healthy tan with some of the top rated self tanners.As the flowers begin to bloom with such beautiful color, we need to brighten our makeup look.  

Here are some of my favorite products for the season!  


Tan-Luxe The Butter Illuminating Tanning Butter $36 l  Sephora

This quick drying gradual tanner contains Cellutone Complex to firm skin and reduce appearance of cellulite. It is infused with raspberry seed oil, vitamin E, and aloe vera to keep skin ultra-soft and golden for a rich, super 

luxurious texture.


Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery Broad Spectrum SPF 50 $73 l  Sephora & Ulta

A daily SPF moisturizer that is loaded with antioxidants and helps reduce the look of fine 

lines and wrinkles. 


Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation SPF15 $47 l  

Sephora, Ulta and Belk Marietta

This liquid foundation is oil-free, long-wearing, liquid that delivers

buildable coverage and leaves a natural-looking, velvety-matte finish for up to 24 hours.  It is available in 45 shades.  Stop by Belk Marietta and receive a complimentary 10 day supply in your perfect shade.


Anastasia Powder Bronzer $28 l  Sephora & Ulta

Nars Bronzing Powder $40 l  

Sephora & Ulta

I am a huge fan of bronzers! This is a year round product, not just for summer.  Currently contouring is a big deal in makeup application.  Not everyone desires the “Kardashian” look.  I recommend using a bronzer to achieve a more natural sculpted look. To achieve a contouring effect, start by applying bronzer to the cheeks in a back and forth motion, swing the brush up to the forehead, down the nose and the remainder across the jawline. As you start to get darker you can add more to the jawline and neck.

Publisher's Post - Premier issue!



This is intended to be a statement - the confident answer to the question, “Where are you from?” or “Where do you live?”  Marietta.

Hi!  I love harvest time, don’t you?  We’ve been working all summer to get this premier issue to press, and we are so excited to get to share it with everyone!  My name is Nicole Shea, and I live in this wonderful city of Marietta, also once referred to as “The Gem City,” with my husband and two kids.  I am new to the magazine business, but have a heart for getting to know the stories behind the fabulousness of this town.  

Who are we?  What is our vision for this new publication?  We are a group of local writers, graphic designers, photographers, foodies and Marietta-lovers who are on a mission to help small communities thrive.  To stay true to our name, we have a few rules - boundaries:

1.  We will only write about Marietta people, places and things.  If it doesn’t have a Marietta address, it won’t really fit our mission of being a local lifestyle magazine just for Marietta.

2.  We aren’t concerned with incorporated or unincorporated boundary lines or outdated ways of differentiating between north, south, east, and west Cobb - if you have a Marietta address then we think you’ll connect with our magazine.

3.  We’re not a newspaper, and we won’t try to be because we wouldn’t be very good at it.  We will focus on sharing the greatest local stories about festivals, philanthropy, local entrepreneurs, the arts and theatre, our history, new developments and everybody’s favorite:  food and drink.

Our promise to be interesting, creative and optimistic.  We hope you enjoy reading all about Marietta and what makes it such a GEM!

The November/December issue will be packed with our local holiday favorites, so be sure to subscribe TODAY!
