It’s January, and everything feels fresh. We can’t think of a better time to roll out a new lineup of local FINDS to support our resolutions, spice up our winter styles, add color to our homes and practice a little restorative pampering. This month in Nashville, we’re saying hello to some fabulous items that will solve the post-holiday blues!
FOR YOUR RESOLUTIONS
May your January look as bright as this gorgeous basket of vegetables from Green Door Gourmet! If clean eating and fresh cooking are any part of your goals for the New Year, make a trip to shop from this local farm located off River Road in West Nashville. Available at market price beginning at $1.99 per pound, options include butternut squash, white daikons, carrots, varieties of kale, red bok choy, spinach, purple top, scarlet turnips and even Calendula edible flowers.
There’s no better way to kickstart to your January than with a Grand Slam of shots from I Love Juice Bar. Start with your juiced wheatgrass on the far left and work your way through a shot of ginger, a shot of lemon and, finally, a shot pineapple for your quickest burst of nutrients. For $4.50, get a boost of antioxidants and energy while also strengthening your immune system. If you’re under the weather and really in the market for some restoration, try the “Sniffle Stopper.”
As you head into a month of aspiring fitness goals, Fleet Feet Nashville has the latest running technology that you need to see. These AfterShokz Bone Conduction headphones are not only wireless but also open-ear. The lightweight headphones wrap around your head, and the buds rest just above your ear, allowing you to groove to your running playlist while also keeping your ears attuned to the sounds around you. We tested them out, and they really are must-haves for any runner. The Titanium model is available in regular and mini sizes for $100.
FOR YOUR HOME
Although we are not quite ready to fully embrace spring styles in our wardrobe, we are definitely looking to ease our way into adding some fresh greens to our home. These 6-by-4.75-inch leaf plates from the COSTA NOVA® Riviera collection provide beautiful color and vibrant freshness to your tablescape for great spring entertaining. Get them for $25 each at Harpeth Gallery.
When the winter weather feels like it’s never going to end, we’re looking for the essential hot beverage to keep us warm. This Staub® tea kettle, part of a vast collection of cast iron products available at The Kitchen Nashville, is a key January find. Pictured here in grey, this striking $179.95 kettle can soon be the force behind your most chic-looking and seasonally needed tea preparation yet!
Should you find yourself longing for the beach in the dead of winter, Providence Interiors has just the remedy. Head to the Green Hills store to choose from a variety of shapes and colors of beautiful coral, ranging in price from $32 to $170. These unique accessories can rest on any surface in your home, either in Nashville or at the beach, to give you the perfect sandy sentiments.
We all know that those dreary January days in Nashville can take a toll and leave you desperately craving some color. Lucky for us, Flower Mart never lets us down in the greenery department. Choose from their collection of exuberant 4-ounce pansy planters for $2.99 each to add a serious rainbow display to your yard. These guys will continue growing strong through the winter and carry you well into spring!
As we consider the newness of 2019 and the opportunity to do some goal setting, we love the thought of consulting the pros for some sage advice. Getting There by Gillian Zeo Segal allows you to hear from some of the most intelligent and accomplished mentors in the world and read about challenges they have faced and what it truly means to succeed. Though it seems like the distant future, graduation season will be here before you know it, and this book is the perfect well-wishing read for any graduate you know! Gift it or add to your personal collection for $24.95 from Onward Reserve.
When forced to decide which of these soft and adorable animal puppets to choose from, we are inclined to say “Let’s just get them all and start a zoo!” Shop the hippopotamus, the tiger or the lion for $55 each at Arcade, and kids will fall in love with these precious playful toys. Put on a show or just give the puppets a snuggle; these furry friends will be crowd favorites!
FOR YOUR STYLE
The French Shoppe is showing us the best way to bring pink into our winter wardrobe with this knitted crewneck snowflake sweater, the ideal January piece to keep you warm. Try it on and cozy up in the baby pink sweater for $128. Who knows, it could even provide that good luck charm to warrant a snowfall!
If you’re catching any final Titans games this season or planning ahead for next, remember there’s a clear bag policy. With this fabulous Kelly Wynne® transparent clutch, you can stay stylish and functional as you carry your phone, ticket, keys and more. Choose from a variety of colors available at Gus Mayer for $195 each.
You may say that you don’t look great in hats, but we’ve never heard of anyone to say that they don’t look good in earmuffs. This cute and fluffy accessory will keep your ears snuggled and warm for all of your January outdoor adventures — without the worry of hat hair! If you’re hitting the slopes over spring break, these muffs can provide the perfect après ski coverage, too. Get them for $60 at Habit.
If you happen to be entertaining this month, even the simple act to remember to pick up napkins might just be too lofty a goal. But it is worth it for this hilarious “whad’ya expect … linen?” set, which will provide your guests with both a napkin and a laugh. This large pack is $14 at The Paper Place.
FOR YOUR SELF-CARE
After all of the holiday travel, your skin may need some rejuvenation. Our trusted source, Woo of Woo Skincare + Cosmetics, told us about the Jane Iredale® supplements, and we are ready to embrace the effects. Ranging in price from $47 to $157 for a pack, the vitamins are aimed at a variety of skin treatments like fighting acne, healing dryness, tackling anti-aging and providing essential vitamins.
When Val Cole of Daniel Cole Collection tells us that she’s especially excited about these Music City lip sets, you better believe that we are listening. For $40, the trios of liquid lips and glosses will give you a fresh kick of color and shimmer for your 2019 look. These Nashville-inspired shades, with names like Rhymin’ Red, Nashville “Hot” Chick, Sweet Tea and even Blushing Bachelorette, will make the perfect welcoming gift for any out of towners.
Private Edition has some stunning eyelashes that they are dying to share. These SweedLashes® sets allow you to choose your type of extension and apply with ease to finish off some fabulous eyes! Buy them for $19 and see why the makeup experts are loving these lashes right now.
Have a great month — and a great 2019!
