Lucas, a Weston resident. "We call ourselves 'beauty junkies,' and I am a card-carrying member of this club." High-end cosmetics and skin care products in arrestingly pretty packages are just the beginning here. Experts on staff will apply your makeup or style your hair. Bridal par- ties get special attention, and gift items range from jewelry to the per- fect set of brushes for the perfect look. FASTACHI (24 Church Street) speaks to a different kind of taste — arti- sanal fresh roasted nuts and luscious handmade chocolates. Their home- made nut butters (cashew, pistachio, hazelnut, peanut, pecan, almond, and walnut) are popular and delicious. Sample one of the barks — choose plump fruit or nuts (or both) em- bedded in creamy milk, dark, or white chocolate — and you're hooked. Trust me on this. Fastachi's Wellesley store, the newest of three owned by husband and wife Souren and Susan Etyemezian, is an airy space of blond wood, glass, and sage walls evoking nature. At their Watertown location, nuts are roasted in small batches, by hand, only as needed, to ensure fresh- ness and quality, giving them more control of the product, says Susan Etyemezian. "We choose not to use fancy seasonings, only sea salt to enhance the true flavor of the nuts." In addition to the nut butters, the selection includes nut brittle, dried fruit, gift baskets, baskets and bowls, and bagged nuts for cooking and gourmet snacks. IN THE NEXT ISSUE, read about the exciting new retail offerings across the street from Church Square at the Belclare. We'll preview Barber Walter, Lash L'Amour, Agnes Vision of Wellesley, Laer Realty, Pucker Gallery, La Mia Moda Boutique, and Atelier Salon. 143 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 8
