The Houston Tidbits Summer Guide

Put a little shimmer in your summer. Here's what's haute in Houston.

1. à bientôt // It’s the towel of the summer. Just $25, microfiber, extra-large, dries quickly... and sand will not stick! Cabana stripes in colors like Bondi Blue and Waikiki Coral - add your monogram! Pop by the River Oaks boutique to shop eclectic, around-the-world pieces like pom pom totes, bohemian bangles and well-priced gifts. Their famous summer sale is in-store and online through June 23!

2. Hotel ZaZa // Experience the hottest pool scene around at Hotel ZaZa’s Memorial City or Museum District location with the sizzling-chic Poolside Package. #STAYZAZA and included with your room this summer is 2 glasses of prosecco poolside, complimentary valet, $25 food and beverage credit and a gift upon arrival. While you’re lounging, enter the #zazasummer social media contest—prize given each month for best pool pic!

3. Hiatus Spa + Retreat // The high-end Tanglewood day spa’s Summer Spa Membership is designed to keep you perfectly chill all summer long. Escape the heat with a spa service each month, plus all the benefits of their award-winning spa membership program, H-Circle—unlimited additional services at discounted member pricing, 10% off all retail products, priority booking and discounts for your guests.

4. Market Street The Woodlands // Style is in the bag at Market Street The Woodlands, like the ruffled Ionita romper from Club Monaco—the tropical watercolor is vacay-approved. Also home to stores like Warby Parker (coming soon) and Sur La Table, Tiffany & Co., J.Crew, Kendra Scott, Madewell and Tory Burch, Market Street is your stop for on-trend summer fashion, along with world class chefs and fine dining.

5. Michael's Cookie Jar // The beloved local bakery’s cookies are made with real butter, freshly cracked eggs and natural flavors. Stop into three locations - West U, Tanglewood, downtown tunnels - for oven-fresh cookies in 9 classic flavors daily like Chocolate Chunk, Snickerdoodle and Toffee Pecan. Summer fun for kids: cookie decorating any time for $8.95, pictured.

6. Utopia MedSpa // Want a bikini bod? The new non-surgical butt lift at Utopia MedSpa in Uptown Park has little to no downtime with natural looking results. Schedule a free consultation to make sure you’re a candidate at 713.622.2277 and ask about the discounted Beach Butt Babe promotion—along with your treatment you’ll be gifted with a free usage of Restylane filler.

7. Tidbits Rosé Brunch! // It's our first-ever rosé brunch, taking place Sat, June 30, in the stunning upstairs lounge at Le Colonial in River Oaks District. Choose your courses from the French-Vietnamese menu. Think roasted salmon, cage free chicken breast and g-free and vegetarian options, too. Make your reservation now - this private event will sell out. 

8. Flower Arranging + Watercolor Workshop // With instruction from two local female experts, you'll create a beautiful arrangement of bright, fresh flowers.... you'll also paint a piece of art inspired by the fresh blooms. You'll take both home. Our Inside The Artist's Studio takes place in an industrial-chic space on Spring St. Floral-inspired cocktails, too! Reserve your spot today.
