jason elliott takes satmc on the road (and his motorcycle can be yours)

As most of you know, Jason is hard at work on his music when he's not spiffing up your locks at Aviary. His project, Spirits and the Melchizedek Children, has continued to grow and this past month, they released a new album entitled "So Happy, It's Sad." While Jason hit the road with SATMC last Thursday for a two-month tour, they need your help to continue recording, touring and creating. We'll miss having Jason in the nest, but we're so happy to see him fly. Head over here to check out the campaign and chip in where you can (there is some pretty cool stuff involved).

francesca hernandez, aviary's newest esthetician

We are so excited to introduce you to Francesca, our newest esthetician. A true adventurer with a passion for holistic health, healing arts and beauty, Francesca has worked at reputable spas around Atlanta as well as a resort spa in Bermuda.  She's now entering her tenth year in the industry and we're thrilled she's decided to share her sense of exploration, inspiration and knowledge with us. Here's a little about her – in and out of the treatment room: What initially interested you in your craft? With your first degree in studio art, do you feel the two go hand in hand? I first became intrigued in aesthetics and massage in junior high after I saw an article in Seventeen Magazine about spa treatments. There was something so pleasing about self care and the tranquil images that it left an impression on me. I also started getting into my own aesthetic rituals around that time, which in turn helped with my confidence as a teenager. I would buy exfoliant and masks from The Body Shop with my allowance money and do facials on myself at home. The visual arts has always been a life long interest. It definitely goes together as both allow me to use my hands and be in the moment.

You were born in Louisiana, but spent your childhood between Puerto Rico and Florida. What brought you to Atlanta? I initially came to Atlanta in high school after my mom got a job at a college here. Since then I've lived in other places, but I always ended up coming back to Atlanta. It just offers a lot here in the way of activities and interests, plus you've got a lot of good nature spots to balance it out.

As an adventurer, what's one of your favorite places in the world? Paris. I've never seen another city so well designed. It was like someone laid out the city so that every angle looks like a scene from a painting. It's definitely worth a return visit.

How about in Atlanta? As a foodie I am eternally grateful for the Dekalb Farmer's Market. Their selection keeps getting better and its worth braving the crowds. The Atlanta Botanical Garden is another favorite. I just got back from seeing the scarecrows and the Imaginary Worlds exhibit. It is always a pleasure to hang out there.

And lastly, if you were a bird, what bird would you be? An owl, but maybe a baby owl. I tend to be a solitary thinker but I'm wise enough to know I don't know it all.
