The Dior Buckhead Atlanta Boutique Opening with featured blogger: Monica Awe-Etuk

Uncategorized By September 29, 2016 No Comments


Hey Lovelies, happy Thursday! Last week I had the pleasure of attending the opening of the Dior boutique located at the Shops Buckhead Atlanta. The barricades for the boutique had been up for a while,  creating anticipation to see the boutique. I too became anxious to see what it would look like, would it really capture the essence of Paris, and what would the assortment look like? I have to say the store met every expectation and some. The store is the epitome of luxury. Once you enter the boutique, you are greeted by the beautiful scents of  Dior, New Look 1947, and Amber Nuit. The luxurious decor is complimented by all things Dior. I truly felt like a kid in a candy store because the The product assortment which consisted of; handbags, Jewelry ready-to-wear, sunglasses, and shoes was all absolutely stunning! You guys know I love bags, hence my eyes went straight to the beautiful selection of bags which included an array of one of a kind exotic skins, and specialty pieces like the Diorama Club.  I have to say the store is definitely one of the most beautiful stores I have ever seen, and I highly encourage you to go in have a look, and shop with the highly experienced staff


Diptyque Skincare: The Real Deal

Uncategorized By September 16, 2016 No Comments

Is it summer? Is it fall? We don’t know about you, but everyone over at Style Scene is feeling a dried out from the constant changes in weather — which is why we’re super (hashtag) excited to try out the new skincare line from

Dipyque’s ‘ L’Art du Soin’! This skincare collection is the REAL deal. Every product is so delicate and beautiful and these products actually work. Here’s a product breakdown and why we think every beauty lover needs to take these products for a test drive.




This product isn’t new, but it’s been a Style Scene favorite since Diptyque opened its doors at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta.  The Infused Facial Water is so refreshing that a couple dabs will not only compliment the rest of your skincare regimen (it’s packed with Vitamins!) but it will also make you feel refreshed and energized — perfect for that mid-day slump.

TIP: Buy a travel size spray bottle

and fill with the Infused Facial Water so you can refresh your skin all day!




We were a bit skeptical of this balm at first (SPOILER: It’s amazing!), but the second it touched our skin and turned into a fine oil, we believed they hype.

And because it’s so gentle, this was a particularly great cleanser for those of us who often time use products containing retinol and salicylic acid.




Our friends at Diptyque told us this powder is “enriched with flower petal and white clay powders, and was inspired by traditional Asian skincare rituals.” Which is amazing, but we REALLY love this product because of it changes texture from a powder into foamy goodness when you add water.

The bottle is HUGE and will last you a long time, which means long-term savings $$.




We can’t tell you enough how much we love this product. If the changing of seasons has left you feeling out to dry (us too!), this is the perfect product for you. We used just a few drops at bedtime

before applying Diptyque’s Essential Facial Cream and woke up to fresh and rejuvenated-looking skin after just one use. Plus, the aromatic flower extract smells heavenly!



The bottle says it’s good for all skin types,

but for those of us with sensitive skin, Diptyque’s Essential Face Cream is like a little gift from heaven. Combined with the Infused Face Oil for a nighttime treatment, or on it’s own during the day, this cream lives up to its namesake! This product is especially great layered after using an “on the spot” treatment because it gives you the moisture that your skin needs! Thumbs up emoji for the essential face cream.



This light moisturizing lotion protects skin from all the unnecessary toxins it comes into contact with. Perfect for a city girl on the go, apply in the morning and feel hydrated all day (side note, it’s the perfect size for to keep in your carry-all tote or glove box!).




Our lips are THIRSTY! This matte lip-balm is perfect for pre or post lipstick application and keeps your lips looking kissable all day long. Nourishing balm for the lips… for the win!

Summer at The Shack

Uncategorized By June 13, 2016 No Comments


When it comes to the best Atlanta burgers, Shake Shack always makes the list. With their famous sauce, perfectly cooked meat patties- Shake Shack knows how to make a mean burger. Lucky for us the only Shake Shack in the southeast is located at The Shops Buckhed Atlanta!

Shake 1

Shake Shack actually sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. The cart was quite the success, with Shack fans lined up daily for three summers. In 2004, the bid was won to open a permanent kiosk in the Park: Shake Shack was born. This modern day “roadside” burger stand serves up the most delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more. An instant neighborhood fixture, Shake Shack welcomed people from all over the city, country and world who gathered together to enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of the classics in a majestic setting. The rest, as they say, is burger history.

Shake Shack not only creates delicious burgers and hot dogs but they are also famous for their custard. And just for summer, Shake Shack is releasing some extra special dishes and events-

Great American Shake Sale

Now through the end of May, guests who donate $2 or more to No Kid Hungry at Shake Shack will receive a card for a complimentary hand-spun shake, redeemable on their next visit. 100 percent of donations will benefit local chapters of No Kid Hungry.

Blueberry Pie Oh My

Berry season is in full bloom and Shake Shack is taking advantage by blended up a new “Blueberry Pie Oh My” frozen custard made with a slice of delicious Shack-made blueberry pie and topped with whipped cream. From Friday, May 27, to Monday, July 4, enjoy the frozen treat in concrete or shake form – either way, it’s perfect for enjoying al fresco on Shack’s rooftop patio.


Bacon CheddarShack Burger

On Friday, June 3, Shake Shack will unveil its latest burger addition – the Bacon CheddarShack burger, made with an all-natural Angus beef hamburger and topped with smoked Niman Ranch bacon and Wisconsin aged cheddar cheese sauce. The Bacon CheddarShack will be available for a limited time.

Bottoms up and cool down! On Tuesday, July 5, Shake Shack will release its signature Shack Shandy, a tasty blend of ShackMeister Ale and lemonade. Perfect for sipping in the sunshine on the Shack’s rooftop, Shack Shandys will be available through September 5.

Travel Like a Gypsy | Eat Like a King

Uncategorized By June 3, 2016 No Comments


Hi friends! Luisa from Peaches to Pearls here once again to tell you about another The Shops Buckhead Atlanta restaurant. Today the spotlight goes to the phenomenal restaurant Gypsy Kitchen. This delectable restaurant draws inspiration from the culinary riches of Spain – infused with Moroccan traditions from across the Gibraltar and Indian influences that travelled west along the same seas.

Gypsy 1

Gypsy Kitchen also brings you the best of modern day Spanish cuisine, a sophisticated mix of traditional classics artfully interpreted through a contemporary lens, tracing through the eclectic regions of Spain, from the southwest coast of Andalusia to the Basque and Galician regions to the north, and then east to Catalonia.  These creations are the fruits of their labor and are the result of years of joyful research from extensive travels throughout Spain, much like gypsies on a culinary adventure.

Here are a few of my recommendations to make the most out of your visit to Gypsy Kitchen

When you first arrive kick off your evening with one of their signature drinks. Two of their most famous drinks- The Seville Rose {Vodka, Roses & Spice, Egg White, Lemon, Soda {and Leather & Silk {Gin, Chartreuse, Velvet Falernum, Lime} are crisp, fresh and easy to drink!

Gypsy 2

Next, order a few starters to go with your drinks. I highly recommend trying-tortilla espagnole, foie gras escabèche, chickpea pancakes, yellowfin tuna tartare stuffed into piquillo peppers and a charcuterie and cheese board. Although I love everything, their chickpea pancakes are my favorite. They are gluten free and are made fresh every day. Yum!

Gypsy 3

Gypsy 5

After all these amazing tapas move on to the main course. The Georges bank cod is great for all fish lovers. It comes with green onion pil pil, glazed eggplant and black garlic migas. Craving something a little different? Try their most popular dish- the seafood paella “fried rice”-which comes with clams, mussels, shrimp, peas, red pepper-chorizo salazon PLUS a fried egg on top. YUM! Both dishes are great but after one bite you will see why the fried rice is the most popular dish!

Gypsy 6

Gypsy 4

Leave room for dessert and try either their chocolate cake bar or/and their white Spanish cake. The chocolate cake has a little bit of pepper dust added to it, giving each bite a slight kick! Phenomenal!

If the weather permits, I highly recommend you sit out on the porch. Whether you are looking for a delicious restaurant to try with your significant other, or you are looking for a place to drink with your girls- Gypsy Kitchen won’t disappoint.
