Diva Hauls: Cool Chattanooga Finds

Located in downtown Chattanooga

As promised in my previous post, I'll disclose the cool things I found at Go Fish while in Chattanooga. Go Fish is a smal franchise (this one is privately owned) founded in the late 1980's. The purpose of the store is to uplift third world countries by buying handcrafted pieces  from the artisans and selling them. The majority of the store's offerings come from all over the globe and are hand carved and painted. Check out what I took home with me below.

Diva's Life: First Time in Chattanooga

Hell All,

I recently went on a trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee on business and I managed to squeeze in some sight seeing. It was my first time visiting the city so I made it my mission to soak in as much as possible. Check out the pictures I snapped below. Warning, this is a picture heavy post. ENJOY!

Diva Hauls: Black Radiance Lipsticks and Lipglosses

Lipsticks (l to r): African Violet, Hibiscus
Lipglosses (l to r): Rasberry, Violet

Yes, as you can see I made another trip to my local drugstore. It's not my fault I bought these. I was actually on the hunt for nail polishes from the Julie G collection and since they are not retailed in my area, I wondered down the make up aisle. What a happy coincidence?

As you can see, I added two more lipsticks to my ever growing Black Radiance lipstick collection. I also decided to try out two of their Perfect Tone lipglosses. Check out my first impressions and swatches below.

Current Faves: African Pride Olive Miracle Anti-Breakage Maximum Strengthening GrowthOil

Now, the mile long label claims because thars not why I used the product to begin with and definitely not why I keep repurchasing the product. My mom uses this for her hair and body and I tried it when visiting one weekend. I am now on my third bottle! Its is not a heavy greasy oil and absorbs pretty quickly. I LOVE this product as a  hair and body moisturizer.

Review coming soon!

Diva's Life: Snow Flurries, Racecars, and Spa Dates

It was yet another birthday celebration this weekend. My good friend Andrea planned an eventful weekend to celebrate. Friday, we made our way to a popular seafood restaurant, Pappadaeux, despite the snow flurries. We enjoyed exotic dishes such as fried alligator (that was my dish, lol) and other seafood specialties such as stuffed shrimp. Afterwards we had red velvet cheescake from the Cheesecake Factory. Fun times.
