We’re feeling a burst of healthfulness this month, as we rest and restore with these final weeks of summer. We’re also starting to look ahead to must-have fall trends. Here’s a sampling of goodies that we like best.

Three Dots: fall’s laid-back luxe look
It might not be fall quite yet, but we can’t help falling in love with Three Dots’ fall 2010 collection, which perfectly represents the season of subtle sophistication. The latest from Creative Director Pegah Anvarian, the collection offers chic muted versions of the season’s hautest hues in a variety of stripes and patterns.
Renew and Restore: Ritual Reset Cleanse
Been enjoying the summer as much as us? We figured. We’re the first to admit that we’ve spent too much time indulging in summer’s culinary and beverage delights. So, as we unwind into these final weeks of the season, we think now is the perfect time for a three-day detoxifying cleanse to help renew and reset our systems.
Enter Ritual Cleanse, a new O.C. company offering a three-day Reset Cleanse that includes superior fresh-pressed, 100 percent organic raw vegetable and fruit juices that flood the cells with vitamins and minerals to gently cleanse and heal your body – without the harsh detox symptoms often associated with other cleanses. Just drink your six servings of Ritual’s freshly blended concoctions – packaged in eco-conscious biodegradable bottles – each day. After just one day, you’ll start to feel the immense
benefits of cleansing.
Fitness junkies, listen up: You can add The Shred pre- and post-workout drinks to your Ritual Reset Cleanse for extra nutrition to fuel workouts, so you don’t miss out on your fitness routine while you’re cleansing. Delivery service is available. 714.337.4298; ritualcleanse.com
Lyric Culture: You Make My Heart Sing
We both really love music, albeit completely different styles. While Amy’s vibe is more about alternative (think The Killers and Kings of Leon) and Michelle’s is more Coldplay and Dave Matthews, the one thing we do agree on is Lyric Culture Collection. Its line of vintage-inspired tees, sweatshirts and scarves brings your favorite song lyrics to life in beautifully shaped fashion styles. Hanna Schmieder, founder and designer, is a stylish and sassy singer as well, and constantly seeks your fave artists’ permission for the best stuff you can strut. lyricculture.com
Villa Pilates & Yoga: transform your body & spirit
We stumbled onto this little gem while picking up a latte from our favorite local coffee joint, Alta. Situated on the corner of Villa Way and 31st Street in Cannery Village, the freshly remodeled space boasts bamboo floors, open beam ceilings and natural lighting. The vibe is friendly, relaxed and eco-conscious – a haven created by local owner Carly Farmer that offers private and group reformer Pilates and yoga classes. Try her signature Pilates group reformer jump class for the ultimate combination of calorie-burning jumpboard intervals and full-body strength exercises. You’ll be lean, balanced and feelin’ good in no time. 501 31st St., Newport Beach; 949.673.6800; villapilatesandyoga.com
