HAPS FOR THE WEEK|TWO
A much needed massage was how I spent my Sunday morning. Here’s a tip for those that love the art of massage as much as I do. Check out one of your local massage therapy schools. If you are in the Detroit area, try Irene’s Myomassology Institute in Southfield. The price is generally a lot less than visiting a professional and the students are in their last few months of class so they are AWESOME! This Style Diva has decided to indulge in this yummy treat once a month, I’m worth it – aren’t we all?
Well this week I’ve started a new project, VolunteerSwag. I’m not sure if you all remember my tagline a few weeks ago, “Kindness is ALWAYS Fashionable”. Well it got me to thinking about exploring the concept of volunteering, especially with youth, because it really motivates me. The concept is still being developed but for now you can follow @VOLUNTEERSWAG on Twitter to learn more. This is going to be very special hope you’ll join us.
# HOTNESS |THREE Rent the Runway Looking for a little special something to wear to a special night out or soiree? Why pay $400 or more on that little black dress when you can rent it for a fraction of the cost. Give www.renttherunway.com a try. They have a huge variety of dresses (pages and pages) from lots of haute designers BUT they only go up to a size 12.
The one nice thing besides the price tag is that you can ship back for FREE and if the size you receive doesn’t exactly fit you can get the next size shipped to you for FREE. I would love to hear your feedback on this site so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

DBox Movie Experience
While experiencing Diary of A Wimpy Kid at the theater this weekend the me juniors and I saw the latest in uber theater style. The DBox Movie seats are the most incredible movie watching experience you can have, for an extra $8 per ticket that is. These seats move, shift to the right/left, have supersonic sound and are as comfortable as your sofa at home. I did my best camera phone paparazzi to capture the amazement on the kids’ faces as they had the “experience”. Follow me on Twitter to see the pictures @favorevtmgt. Style Diva only reporting the best to you. You can also follow the DBox on Facebook and tell them about your first experience.
