Ladies, if you live in Atlanta and haven't been acquainted with Sweet Samba, allow me to introduce you. 

I've been going faithfully for about a year, and I was originally attracted to their spa services, specifically their bikini waxes. Unlike other places in town, they a soft wax, which only bonds to the hair, not the skin. This is especially important for our delicate areas! The best part? It's only $35 for first timer brazilian waxers, and the prices stay extremely reasonable after that. I've seen fancy schmancy spas charge upwards $80-$100 for a full wax, which, in my opinion, is outrageous. Sweet Samba provides quality service at fair rates. I've been seen by a few different estheticians, and I'm never disappointed.

While you're waiting, check out the products in the boutique. Their homemade candles & soaps smell amazing.

There are three locations around Atlanta: Midtown, Downtown, & Vinings (my usual spot). They also have student discount available!

It seems my life has been missing some food posts. Enter: Zucca Bar & Pizzeria, coming to my rescue. It's not that I haven't been eating at any good spots. I have, but only your basic, non-blogworthy places. Zucca, however, is a small little pizzeria, worthy of note for its intimacy. The booths even have their own LCD televisions. Maybe they were designed for the couples who are prone to awkward silences.

My amazing & beautiful friend, Laura

I had the Pizza Margherita, and the classic pepperoni is pretty good too. If you're in the mood for some fancy pies, check em' out!
