Hammond’s Ferry has seen a bunch of new businesses open up recently.
DiVino Ristorante Italiano is owned by Andrea and Marion Petruzzi who moved to North Augusta from Italy recently, and it’s designed to bring a little bit of Tuscany to you. It’s located at 465 Railroad Avenue #100. Get more information at www.DiVinoNorthAugusta.com.
Another business new to the area over the past year, The Hammond’s Ferry Larder, is a restaurant/coffee shop/deli/grocery store that offers the finest ingredients, the most tasteful details and a gorgeous ambience all in the heart of Hammond’s Ferry. Located at 89 Crystal Lake Drive, this is the perfect place for a relaxing cocktail or tasty meal. Find out more at www.hflarder.com.
WHAT’S TRENDY: Satin sneakers – made popular by Rihanna’s collaboration with Puma – have hit the runways and the store aisles, for sure.
The Rihanna original has completely sold out, but if you want to create the same vibe, there are other options out there for you. If you want to just straight-up commit to this unlikely-to-last trend, Jil Sander has a pair that are minimalist, look just like a Superga or Converse, and fully go for the satin look by using a ribbon instead of a shoelace ($495).
If you are looking to invest a little less than that, check out Topshop’s CATSEYE sneaker. These are a little more like Adidas Stan Smiths, and come in a green-grey that will go with everything ($40).
WHAT’S AFFORDABLE: Pocket is a new app that helps you collect and save all those bookmarked articles, slideshows and quizzes you don’t have time for when you initially come across them.
It’s a free app, available on iOS and Android, and can draw from your browser, email, Twitter or more than 1,500 other apps.
About to be away from WiFi or data for awhile? No problem, because Pocket allows you to download and save these links in a clean, easy to use interface so that it feels like you made your own little magazine of curated content. When you’re ready to read, you can view the links on your iPhone, iPad, Android, Kobo or right on your web browser.
