1. Forever Flawless
Channel your inner BeyoncĂ© (we know she’s in there) at relaxing new retail spot Forever Flawless, opening in Kennesaw’s Town Center at Cobb late this summer. The spa-quality skincare brand, with a focus on cutting-edge technology and anti-aging products, will crop up in an 860-square-foot space featuring plush, tufted accents and bright-white decor. Looking good! 400 Ernest W Barrett Pkwy NW, Kennesaw, 770.424.9486

2. Lush Nail Bar
Midtown shopping mecca Atlantic Station just got a lot more glam with the recent addition of Lush Nail Bar. Located next to skincare spot Dermalogica, the luxurious space is decked out in glittery chandeliers and relaxing massage chairs, much like the original location in Ansley Mall, with glasses of chilled wine on offer while you indulge in some well-deserved pampering. Uh... nailed it! 261 19th St. NW, 678.515.8929

3. Torq Cycle ATL
Get your cycle on at Marietta Street’s new indoor spin studio, Torq Cycle ATL. When it comes to classes, you can swap your salad for a 35-minute sweat sesh or opt for a 60-minute pre-cocktail ride. (Bonus: All classes include a little upper-body burn too!) Post-class, save time to pamper yourself with goodies like chilled eucalyptus towels and oh-so-hip MALIN+GOETZ products. Talk about biking bliss! $25 for a single ride, 935 Marietta St. NW, 404.606.6931

4. Nike Pro Bra Collection
Keep your girls in place while working on your fitness with the new Nike Pro Bra Collection, an innovative line of sports bras designed for ladies of all shapes and sizes. Find your exact size with the Nike Pro 360 Fit System, a supertechy calculator that determines your best fit. Our fave style? The Nike Pro Rival bra (shown here), which comes in 25 sizes, ranging from 30B to 38E. Fab! $35-$65, 3393 Peachtree Road NE, 404.846.5549

5. The Proven
Take two CrossFit addicts; add in a hefty knowledge of e-commerce; and you’ve got The Proven—a recently launched, locally based site that works to connect CrossFit enthusiasts with gear, gyms, equipment and more. The brand, founded by Daniel Caplin and Shu Chen, features men’s and women’s apparel, footwear, supplements and accessories, plus an inside look at CrossFit gyms in places like Woodstock, Chamblee, Midtown and South Cobb. A winning combo, indeed.
