How lucky are we to live in a city as amazing as Savannah?!
We all know Savannah is filled with beauty, but have you really taken the time to explore your city? We did, and we have plenty to share, so let’s go!
First let’s talk about Southern Sugaring. Not only are they an awesome girl boss–owned business, but sugaring is SO much better than waxing! Sugaring lasts longer and hurts less. It is certified organic—made from sugar, lemon, and water. Aside from sugaring, Southern Sugaring offers adorable swimsuits and accessories, from classic Quay sunnies to high-quality bathing suits that fit any body type. This Alana ribbed bodysuit is definitely a piece you can rock on the beach or on the pier!
Our next stop is Hustle & Blow Dry Bar. We may be a bit biased, but we think it’s the best salon in town. We are a full-service salon offering services from blowouts, cuts, and color to facials and lash lifts. Hustle & Blow is the first Green Circle Salon in the area, which means it is a fully sustainable salon. We recycle 95% of the waste that we create. We carry all-natural and cruelty-free products from Kevin Murphy and Little Barn Apothecary. Hustle & Blow truly believes in living a bloom-to-bottle lifestyle. So stop by and get glammed up before you hit the town!
Next, let’s talk about Tybee Island: Savannah’s little hidden gem. There are so many picturesque spots all over the island—you just have to take the time to find them! But one of the staples of Tybee is the Sugar Shack. Offering classic American staples and creative ice cream flavors, it is definitely a must-see stop on your Tybee Island tour. Grab your beach cruiser and make sure to hit all of the side streets to see all of the beauty this island has to offer.
If you are looking for an expertly curated selection of men’s clothing and housewares, look no further than the Rat on Bull. This shop is located in Savannah’s up-and-coming Starland District and features men’s-focused apparel, apothecary items, and locally crafted goods. Check out these amazing, detailed loafers!
Savannah has a ton of clothing options to offer, but we have hit the summer style jackpot with The Edition! Brand new to Savannah, it mixes classic wardrobe staples with cute and trendy accessories. All of the designers you thought you would have to order online you can now get in store at The Edition. Check out these adorable pieces that you can make your own.
Now we all know that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but Harkleroad Diamonds are a girl’s BFF. A Savannah staple since 1987, they are stocked with beautiful diamonds and provide top-notch customer service! Whether you are just browsing or looking to create a custom piece, you will not be disappointed at Harkleroad’s. Savannah is extremely supportive of its “buy local” community and Harkleroad Diamonds is its biggest supporter.
We can’t wait to make the most out of our Savannah summer and hope that you do, too!
