Eastside Map by Emma Gundlach

Since moving to East Austin almost a year ago, we've fallen madly in love.  To celebrate the upcoming EAST Studio Tour and our first anniversary, we commissioned the incredibly talented Emma Gundlach to create a map of our favorite spots. 

How beautiful is this?  We're so in love that we are providing complimentary hard copies to all of our amazing studio rental clients. 

The master plan is to take you guys on an Eastside tour while I cruise the streets on Black Beauty (my fixie). Stay tuned, my friends because we're headed for a yummy ride!

Whiskey 101 Recap

Well, well, well.  Who knew whiskey (whisky, whiskeys, whiskies) could be so much fun?  We always have a blast organizing cocktail workshops, but it was real treat participating as a newbie.

On July 30, She + Him Bartending showed up and showed out for our first workshop at the studio. The dynamic duo walked the whiskey curious through a history lesson on bourbon, scotch and rye, followed by a tasting of each.

Afterwards, we did our best bartender impressions and made a cocktail with each whiskey type using professional bar tools.

Let's just say the weekend was a success.  We had a great time meeting new people, and can't wait to do it all over again.  Stay tuned and thirsty, my friends!

The Identité Collective

We are beyond excited to have Anastasia Casey in our studio on the first stop of her The Identité Collective workshop series on August 20-21. As a professional graphic designer, she provides top notch branding services for small businesses with a conservative budget.

Not only is she bringing those skills to this branding boot camp, she's taking it even further by providing step-by-step instructions on how to effectively use your new brand design across your website and social media platforms.

After just two days, you will leave with a new logo, a perfectly curated mood board to carry out your new look across platforms, photography + editing skills, and social media tips to grow your following. How incredible is that?

Spire the Label

This weekend Revelry left the great East Austin and headed down South Lamar. Why, you ask? Good question. This past Saturday, Aro and Spire the Label came together to produce an amazing Pop Up that left shoppers with bags full of goodies.  

Chelsey Nordyke, the founder and designer of Spire the Label, was at Aro during the afternoon to showcase her Spring/Summer 2016 collection. It was very inspiring seeing a designer be so hands on with her customers.  The whole event felt like a giant group of best friends shopping together. 

A little bit about the designer, she was accepted into Savannah College of Design in Georgia, but instead took a different route.  Nordyke says she spent years saving and working endless hours to create her collection.  Eventually, her dream became a reality. She entered her Winter/Fall 2015 collection into Austin Fashion Week and won many awards for it. Not to mention she did all this at the age of 22. Talk about a girl boss! I don't think this is the last we will be seeing of Spire. To see the new collection for yourself, check it out here: Spire the Label

The plethora of girl bosses continues with Leslie Hernandez.  Founder and owner of the shop Aro, Hernandez had a dream and executed it to a T. Hernadnez defines her shop as, "...a jewlery and lifestyle concept e-commerce shop bringing together independent designers, artisans and unique finds from around the world." Sounds a lot like what we're all about. AKA collaborating with other artists. Both ladies represented everything Revelry. Bringing fashion, art, and Austin together. If you didn't get the chance to drink Prosecco and shop amongst girl bosses, stress no more. We have found the solution, simply stop by Aro's shop on South Lamar or check out Leslie's store online: Shop-Aro.

Watermelon Mint Julep

What does a Mint Julep make you think of? The Kentucky Derby, right? But why should such a delicious cocktail be relegated to one day for an event that lasts only two minutes? They're way too tasty for that, and with the addition of juicy watermelon, you've got a inspiriting cocktail to serve all summer long.
