Big news... I'm engaged!

To celebrate our 9th anniversary of dating (can't believe how quickly the years have passed!), my man arranged a special date night for us. We started the night off at SkyView Atlanta, a brand new Ferris wheel downtown that's almost 20 stories high. I adore carnival rides and roller coasters, so this was a fun way to kick off our date. Plus, it's so pretty and lit up at night.

We got our own gondola, and on the second time around while we were at the top... he proposed! I obviously said yes, hence this post, and totally cried happy tears. Then he told me that the ring was my grandmother's, which made it even more special and brought on more tears. We're both thrilled that it's now "official" after all these years!

After the ride ended, we walked over to the Westin for a fancy dinner out at the Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View, a tri-level complex featuring a revolving restaurant and lounge. This is by far the best place to go in Atlanta for an incredible 360-degree view of the city. We enjoyed champagne, watching the buildings pass by, and a delicious meal together (I got the lobster, my fiancé!! got the filet mignon).

I will remember this night forever... it was perfect, and everything a girl could dream of!

Benefits of Face Brushing

You've heard me talk about Body Brushing and all the wonderful health and beauty benefits that come along with it, but what about Face Brushing? You can brush your face and neck and get the same type of benefits as body brushing delivers! Facial brushing removes dead skin and stimulates circulation , which firms and improves skin tone . Your skin will become softer and smoother ! It's like a mini facial massage every time you brush, a fabulous way to spoil yourself during your daily facial cleaning routine. In order to do the face brushing sequence you need a small natural-fiber bristle brush . The important thing to look for when selecting the appropriate face brush are natural plant fiber bristles. Do not use the type with plastic bristles because it will not have the same effect. I'm excited to announce that T-Tapp now sells  face brushes ! In addition to the Body Brushing Sequence,  Teresa Tapp created a special Face Brushing Sequence that has been proven

Benefits of Body Brushing

Body brushing is incredible for the skin and healing of the body. Europeans have been body brushing for centuries...maybe that's why they look so fantastic! This blog post will go into some education about What is Body Brushing? Body Brushing is also known as skin brushing and dry brushing . It's done using a natural bristle brush, like the T-Tapp Body Brush pictured above ($11.00, ). Teresa Tapp, creator of the T-Tapp Workout and author of Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes , has developed a specific body brushing pattern that's proven to be effective for all ages and a variety of health and beauty concerns. Teresa's pattern involves brushing the entire body from the feet all the way up to the neckline. Once finished go back and brush the areas that need a little extra attention, such as the butt, thighs and abdomen.  It's best to body brush first thing in the morning , when the increased blood flow will help wake you up and the body is in a natur

Amazing Eats at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

Last night I had the most fabulous meal with my sista at Pappadeaux in Atlanta. She's been keeping this place a secret from me! We get there around 8pm and find out that she knows the hostess from way back. (Our buzzer literally went off after about 5 minutes when there was over a 40 minute wait for a table. VIP!) The first thing that we ordered was the most delicious dip I have EVER put in my mouth, hands down! Lump Crab & Spinach Dip with crispy garlic cheese bread ...OMG. I could eat that by itself and call it a night. I saw a woman with this drink and had to order one for myself. It's called a Swamp Thing made from a mix of raspberry and melon liqueurs blended with frozen Hurricane & Margarita . Fantastic! Brain freeze though. I hate to admit that even though I'm a Florida girl, I've never had oysters before . She was shocked and insisted that we order some. Her favorites were the Oysters Baton Rouge - oysters on the half shell baked with a Parm
