I rather stay at home and watch movies but from time to time I visit a place that I just HAVE to share! So here we go...
VERA'S CANDLE SHACK 1516 Municiple Parkway, Douglasville, GA 30122 10/10 Let's support local businesses. I fell in love with this candle shack when browsing through a local flea market. The look of the shop will make you want to go inside. Mrs. Vera is so nice, she will tell you everything you need to know about the natural product you are purchasing. I had so much fun sniffing around...I want everything!!! I was amazed to see that she makes all her goodies right here in the shack, its fun to watch! Me and my husband like to keep our house smelling good all the time so we bought some oil that we were in awe to learn that if mixed with a lotion you can apply on your body. All hail nature!! We also purchased some melts and all natural soaps, one of them hilariously called: The Perfect Man. It smells delicious! You can go to her Facebook page to see the all natural ingredients in each product. https://www.facebook.com/verascandleshack Thanks to Vera our house smells like Blueberry pie! Thanks!

REVIVE CONSIGNMENT 2514Cobb Parkway, Smyrna, GA 30080 9/10 Consigning with them was so easy! Friendly staff! Great Prices! I love the 'Color of the Day" deals! **Their criteria for clothes accepted are pretty high, so its easy to shop without feeling like you will end up purchasing a damaged piece.
Nail Talk and Tan 1801 Howell Mill Rd, Atlanta, GA 30318 9/10 I loved this place. It was packed when I arrived without an appointment to get my acrylics. I asked for Brian...I went on Yelp to look at reviews and it told me to find Brian! Hahaha. They put me on a chair right away. No cuts...beautiful nails! Brian is the best! But gottdayumm I DID spend almost $50! Which is so not me! I am NOT that type of girl. But on a day where I feel like spoiling myself again...Brian, here I come!
Dee's Grooming Gallery 1860 Spring Rd SE Smyrna, GA 30080 10/10 Sorry I couldn't find a picture of their establishment on Google...but here is this adorable pic of Bailey excited to get pampered! I found this place after Pet Smart enraged me by cutting my dog on her tiny little legs! I expressed my concern to them and Bailey has been going to Dee's for a couple months now. They have always accommodated me and Bailey, even if I call a day before to schedule an appointment. I have no complaints. They are so friendly and they looove Bailey every time she comes in. Bailey is an 8lb. Maltese and it's $50 for full grooming. With flea bath, add $8.
HAVANA CLUB 3112 Piedmont Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30305 9/10 I was present at a special event; Gatsby Party/Unveiling of the new flavor for Ciroq. About 80% of the party goers, bartenders and go-go dancers were dressed up in 20's fashion, including me. A special twist on the regular club scene. I love this place because it is a very diverse crowd...I swear you could find people from anywhere in the world here...beautiful! When you first walk in, you meet the crazy crowd listening to Hip Hop and R&B mixes. The decor in this place is very high end...from fancy chandeliers, to fancy floors. There's a hallway and ooo...ohhh whats this? It's another room playing house music...surprisingly this was the room I spent the most time in...don't blame me, it was so catchy, I couldn't leave!! I said surprisingly, because right next door to that room, is a wonderful space playing all kinds of Latin music...from the sexy reggaeton, to the spicy salsa I love so much! This is a great place to bring a mix crowd of friends...nobody will complain about not having fun because they didn't play music they recognized or blah blah...and if they complain, you need new friends...they suck! Ha!
BOOMER'S STRIP CLUB 2100 Cobb Pkwy SE Smyrna, GA 30080 5/10 Allow me to explain the icon for this place. Google didn't help me on this one. No pictures of this place at all. OK, that's it. I decided to review this place because I just have so much to say about it. Hehehe. First, there's the usual harassment of: "You have to get a minimum of 2 drinks..." or whatever. There goes $20. The chicks here are OK looking. When I went they had this rocker looking stripper, which was kind of refreshing to see. While I got a table dance, the stripper was giving us a rundown on the law and how it is illegal to give lap dances on Cobb County. Yes, you read that right. I enjoyed my table dance. And my ass gave her $10. Yes, strippers love me! Buahaha. Anyways, its a cool, chill place to go to. But, I want my lap dance, hence the rating ;)
PICTURE SHOW AT MERCHANTS EXCHANGE 4400 Roswell Rd, Marietta, GA 30062 10/10 Ugh, I just adore this theater. OK, so the deal is: you wait a little bit longer to watch new released movies...and you pay $1.75!!!! YES $1.75 to watch a flix! i just love saying it...$1.75!!!!!!!!! OK, I was yelling it that last time. You can even watch 3D movies (these are $3...but who cares!!) Very clean place. Popcorn is so yummy! Get this....you're ready?....you can get a tub of popcorn....YES is literally called the TUB for $5!!!....YES I SAID $5....OK I'll calm down. I mean it's so refreshing to go see a movie and not be $30 poorer!
DANCE 411STUDIOS 475 Moreland Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30316 8/10 I attended the Go-Go Stiletto class. It was a wonderful experience. It is a huge dance floor full of sexy no-shame ladies! (Trust me, once you step in and meet the instructors...alllll your shame is out the door!) The music is crazy loud, which is great because it allows you to really get into the choreography. The instructors are awesome! The classes fill up quickly. Two points were taken off the rating just for the simple fact that due to the popularity of this establishment, parking SUCKS! And it's always super crowded! Other than that...I had a blast!
STUDIO MOVIE GRILL 2880 Holcomb Bridge Rd, Alpharetta, GA 30022 8/10 I love this place. You can eat and watch a movie! My two favorite things in the world! As soon as you come inside you know you will have fun...wait, that sounds weird...calm down it's not THAT kind of place! Anyways, this theater has a small lounge area upon entering where you can have a drink before your movie starts. Once seated, you push a small red button on your table and your server comes. The pizza is pretty good. There is also alcohol on the menu. This place is perfect for a date! My rating is based on this small review about this dollar theater or something...hehehe...I can't help it!
TONGUE & GROOVE Main St NE, Atlanta, GA 30324 10/10 I have only been to T&G on Wednesday nights! This place is awesome! If you need a Latin Night this is definitely the spot for you! I love the mix of people that come to salsa off the stressful week. The bartenders make the best drinks! There is a dress code for men so check website before choosing an outfit. They offer free dancing classes from 9-10pm. $10 after 10pm.
