Take Style Out with Haute People

Wednesday, September 30, 2015
Hi Guys!

It is so exciting to launch my first Blogging Course: Get Rich Blogging: Tips to go from Passion to Profit. On Thursday October 1 ( Tomorrow ) I will be offering crazy discounts on the Course as well as a Printable Blog Planner ( that works ).  I know you are probably wondering why a crazy discount and what is "Takes Style Out". We'll get to that really soon .. promise.

Why a Crazy Discount?

Well, As I've said I wanted to keep it under $50 because I know I have readers all over the world and our situations are all different. I remember when I just started Blogging there were certain resources I wanted like Books that I really could not afford. All you have to do is visit the Course link where you will see a description on what it's all about , then at checkout enter code HAUTE102 to get 25% off. I want to know about your experience with the Course and things you like and didn't like.

What is Takes Style Out?

Remember Fashion Night Out where top cities in the world like New York had this mega Sale where there were crazy discounts all around? It has been replaced by "Takes Style Out" here in Kingston and it's the same concept. Comes tomorrow night , I will be hitting the Streets to get crazy discounts on much needed items and of course taking snaps along the way to share here.

I hope to get sign- ups for the course tomorrow and you will make use of the discount code while it lasts:-)

Mission Catwalk All Stars : Episode 1

Monday, September 28, 2015

Last Saturday was the premiere of Mission Catwalk All Stars.

CHALLENGE:         The designers were asked to design a garment inspired by a piece from a past challenge that defines their style and that will show their growth as a designer.
WINNER:                  Ryan Chan    
AGE:                          28

COUNTRY:              Trinidad & Tobago

"I drew inspiration from a dress from a previous mission on season two. My fabric of choice was a black and gold tie dye spandex. This was used to recreate the dress from the previous mission with a silhouette that was more glamorous; black lace was used to keep the design soft but still edgy. Being the first mission, I was full of energy and ready to show the judges my growth. I was the first designer to finish sewing which never happens.  I was probably worried for two minutes, until I saw my model Sydia in the dress. I was like "oh! Ok b!*ch we got this!!”

ELIMINATED DESIGNER:   Ayanna Dixon (Jamaica) 


Age: 28
From: Trinidad and Tobago
Season: 2
Made it to: Finals
IG: @rychan_
Self-taught fashion and jewelry designer, Ryan Chan presents his designs as ‘Edgy Punk’. Ryan has been designing for 15 years and is inspired by music and nature. He designs for international pageants and designs costumes for to Carnival brands in Trinidad & Tobago, Miami and Cayman. Ryan was first seen on season two of Mission Catwalk where he made it to the top three.

Thursday, September 24, 2015
Hi Guys! As you know we are in launch mode until the official release of our Online Blog Course.  If you want your Blog to generate an income , you have to treat it like a Business !

Sounds simple enough right? Believe it or not, there are a lot of things that goes on behind the scenes to make a Blog profitable. When Readers visit your site they should say: "I would highly recommend this site to all my friends and family". If that's not the case that's why you came here. Here are a few things to consider:
Video Snippet from the Course

 PAGES: You will need to add a few pages other than your "home" page. There are tons of videos on YouTube on how to do this and all you have to do is type in "How to add pages on [ insert your Blog Platform ] and step by step Videos should come up. The page layout is also important and should entail some thought and attention to detail.

A Basic Layout could be: HOME , ABOUT , MEDIA , CONTACT. This is a Basic layout and you can add as many pages as you wish. I find that having a Media Page allows a form of credibility where Brands and Readers can view your most precious "curated posts". If you have Writing Samples , Newspaper Features , Radio Interviews , T.V Appearances this is where you will put all that. On this page you can also have a Media Kit ; this shows your Blog Statistics , Social Media Stats and show on. visit to see a live Media Kit.

5 Times Ciara Gave Us Closet Envy

Wednesday, September 23, 2015
Ciara is one of the celebrities who seamlessly transitioned from Singer/Dancer to Socialite and now Model? Ciara is the new face of Roberto Cavalli and has landed a coveted Campaign with the Brand.

We did some digging and found regular "basic" pieces that Ciara transformed into Fashionable Trends. Here are 5 Times Ciara gave us closet envy.

When she paired a basic button down shirt to the CBS Morning Show

When she slayed in the side slit dress

When she wore a David Koma London Jumpsuit to the Streamys

When she took basic Topshop pieces to look ultra chic

When she transformed a sexy Topshop dress into Trendy by adding a Jacket

Ladies , you don't need an expensive Wardrobe to look like a Million Bucks .. all you need is a great eye for detail, picking quality pieces and of course how to put them together.

What was your favorite look?

Monday, September 21, 2015
Hi Guys Happy Monday! If you follow this Blog you would have known that I will be launching my first Online Blogging Course at the end of this month. What ... whaat?! Yeah! With that being said I thought I would build anticipation and share tiny bits of the Course here since maybe you or someone might be interested. I've dubbed this as Launch Week and we'll be looking at some really cool stuff. Today it's all about the Media Kit.

According to Google "A Media Kit is a promotional Public Relations tool that can serve several functions , including promoting the launch of a new product or service by an existing company giving a company a way to present itself as it would like to be seen and saving time by elimination the need"

This gives a textbook definition but its actually a document that showcases your brand the same way a Resume would showcase all your accomplishments. For Bloggers who are looking to work with Brands a Media/Press Kit is important as it tells Brands about your Blog and why they should work with you. Here are a few things your Media/Press Kit should include :

Graze 1st Impressions


I received a box from a company called Graze which is a Snack Subscription service where you can get healthy snacks that are already portioned. There are over 100 healthy Snacks to choose from , 8 healthy sacks are selected for you then they are sent to your home or office.

Here are the Snacks I got in my Box and my thoughts on each of them.

Lousiana Wild Beans & Rice

This snack has Wild Rice sticks & Chili Broad Beans. This was my least favorite. It was waaaay too spicy for a healthy snack .. the chili beans made my eyes water and I was not able to finish it. The Rice sticks were lightly salted and crispy. If you like extremely spicy food/snacks , you would like this one.

Punchy Protein Nuts

This has Almonds , Chili Lime , Cashews and Pistachios. This has a bit of spicy but not too much .. it's more of a flavor.  This is just your typical Nuts Snack but I did find the Peanuts were raw which I didn't mind but the Cashews were my favorite.

Wholegrain Banana Caramel Dippers

This was my favorite! The Banana Dippers are great by themselves but that Caramel Sauce took it to the next level. It had a really rice yummy taste , it was filling and it didn't even taste like a healthy Snack! I would recommend this to everyone.

Triple Berry Smoothie

This snack features mini strawberries , blueberries , cranberries & cherry banana slices. I must preface by saying I'm not a fan of dried Fruit but I actually liked this. I guess it was the strawberries which I love and I like that it didn't have that artificial sweet taste. This is great to snack on in the mornings after breakfast or if you have a busy day and need something to take with you.

To sign up for Graze and get healthy Snacks for only $11.99 per Box , please visit  enter Coupon Code LORANE2NB to get your first box FREE.

Let me know if you've tried Graze and how you like it after you got your 1st Box.

Thursday, September 17, 2015
Finely crafted with improved video capabilities, the most advanced camera features and fast charging technology

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., has announced the release of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ in Jamaica. With this launch, Samsung further strengthens its position as a market leader and sets new standards in terms of screen technology, quality of photos and videos, wireless and wired charging, and processing capabilities. Samsung’s Galaxy S6edge+ will be available locally beginning on September 18, 2015.

We are delighted to bring this powerful device to Jamaica shortly after the global launch, which demonstrates our ongoing commitment to being the first-to-market in mobile technology and premium smartphones,” said Jorge Lopez, regional product manager at Samsung Electronics Latin America. “With the Galaxy S6edge+ we continue to innovate while offering users an ideal mobile companion.”

The Galaxy S6edge+ features unprecedented multimedia capabilities and includes the new ‘Apps edge’ for easy access to favorite apps and enhanced ‘People edge’ for easy communications with preferred contacts. The latest mobile Galaxy device also has a richer screen contrast through Samsung’s industry-leading 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, further enhancing the user experience.

The Galaxy S6edge+ also features 4K Video filming and Live Broadcast, which allows users to instantly live stream Full HD video directly from the phone to any individual, group of contacts, or even the public through YouTube Live. This means that anyone who receives the YouTube link from a Galaxy S6edge+ will be able to enjoy live stream video from their smartphone, tablet, PC or Smart TV with YouTube connectivity.

“Nowadays, social networking plays an important role in the daily lives of consumers and they are demanding more innovative tools that allow them to share important moments of their lives through better quality photos and video,” added Lopez. “Samsung is enabling that desire with improved video capabilities, which include Steady Video, by providing Video Digital Image Stabilization on both the front and rear cameras for a sharper, more crisp video even when the user is in motion. Furthermore, it includes a Video Collage Mode option, which allows users to record and edit short videos easily in various frames and effects. This is truly cutting edge technology and we are proud to be at the forefront of it.”

The Galaxy S6edge+ users will also benefit from Samsung’s advanced camera system, including Quick launch (double click the home button to launch the camera within 0.6 seconds), Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), Smart Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and brand new filters.

This new device will also feature Samsung’s high speed wired and wireless charging technology. The embedded wireless charging technology is compatible with virtually any wireless pad currently available in the market. With wired charging, the device can be fully charged in approximately 90 minutes; while through the wireless charger it can be fully charged in only 120 minutes.

Samsung’s newest device is further upgraded to support SideSync, which offers both wireless and wired PC-smartphone integration for seamless connections across devices. With auto-detection and an ultra quick setup, users can instantly connect their Samsung device to their PC or tablet for easy access to files and data across all platforms and operating systems.

The mobile device will also include enhanced security features with KNOX Active Protection (built into devices and ready to use) in addition to My KNOX (app with simple/fast setup) to further protect sensitive personal and work data.
