Good morning, friends of Cognito! We wanted to let you know about the parking situation this morning, for those of you who have appointments. Metro is re-paving 10th Avenue South, which is awesome, however you will be unable to park at a meter today. As for a space to park, there is a lot across the street from us that we can validate up to 30-mins. We apologize for any inconvenience and we look forward to seeing you all today!
Santorini creators, Courtney and Frank Cuden, traveled to Santorini, Greece for their honeymoon in 2008. They instantly fell in love with the island. They loved it so much, that they wanted to create something that would remind them of the gorgeous island and the experiences they shared. They met with a perfume specialist in Chicago and decided to put Santorini in a bottle! After months of smelling, testing and smelling some more, they finally found the perfect combination of scents.
“Santorini is inspired by the breathtaking Greek island with the same name. You’ll experience a bouquet of Freesia, Cedar and Sandalwood paired with China Lily and Jasmine. Wear Santorini as an everyday scent or for elegant and special occasions.”
We are so excited to be carrying Santorini Scent at Cognito! We currently have the 0.2oz. bottle for $8, and the 2.2oz. bottle for $40. The next phase for Santorini is home scents including soaps, linen sprays and candles. Santorini’s website is said to launch next month, so check back for more details!

We have had lots of adventures here at Cognito. We’ve gone camping at Mark’s farm, worked out with Julia’s Body Shop and in December, we celebrated 10 years of being in business! Today, we have started a brand new adventure. We got a juicer! Today’s recipe was a delicious combination of carrots, celery, apples and oranges. If you have a favorite recipe, please feel free to share it with us!

On November 12th, Amanda, Mark, Kat and Sarah started a Pre-Thanksgiving boot camp and cleanse at Julia’s Body Shop. Our day started with a work-out from 6:00am – 7:00am, then we rocked out some killer hair-do’s at the salon, all the while eating clean (no alcohol, bread or sugar). After 9 days, we all feel healthy and energized! We are so proud of ourselves that we wanted to share some of our results with you guys.
Amanda – lost 3 lbs and gained lean muscle
Mark – lost 3.5 lbs, he lost inches around his waist as well as gained lean muscle in his arms
Kat – gained lean muscle and lost inches around her waist and legs
Sarah – lost 3 lbs, and inches around her waist
What a great way to start this holiday season! If you have ever been interested in a boot camp, go to Julia’s Body Shop. Julia will push you to your limits with an infectious positive attitude that will make you do “just one more”.
