5 Cool Accessories for Summer

Tuesday, June 30, 2015
Hi Guys!


Its that time of the year where we get to express ourselves via Trends and of course Accessories :-) Here are 5 Cool Accessories you need to get this Summer.

Hand Chain: These are popular in U.S.A and U.K and I've seen a few Bloggers & Youtubers rocking this trend from American Apparel. They are a cool trend which can go from subtle to over the top due to the Design you choose. For a cheaper alternative you can check out pieces from Etsy.




Arm Cuff: Hands down one of the coolest things I've seen so far! Remember back in the 90's where they had the plastic wiry versions? Well they are back in chain and metal.

Faux Septum Ring: Have you noticed almost everyone is sporting a nose ring? I've got news for you .. most of them are fake! If you are looking to try this trend without the pain of getting your nose pierced , get yourself a fake one! Thank me later :-)


Expressive Clutch: #thankyoutaylorswift Ever since Taylor "taytay" Swift made her "Bad Blood" Clutch Debut on the Red Carpet to promote her "Bad Blood" Video expressive Clutches are a thing. I've even got on the train and did a quick D-I-Y version.



Cool Shades: These are a must for Summer to keep the haters away ( kidding ) . The Shades that stand out this season are the intense Cat Eye & Semi Round Shades.

How to deal with F.O.M.O : Fear of Missing Out

Friday, June 26, 2015
Hi Guysss! We've made it to yet another Friday. The tone of the Blog for this week was more of a pause from Fashion & Beauty to look a life issues. This post was inspired by Missglamorazzi or Ingrid Nilsen on Youtube.


We are all Humans and fear one thing or the other , for me it is and will always be Lizards. Yes , yes I live in the Tropics and should be used to them by now , but when I see that tiny creature I legit see a Dinosaur and its going to get stuck on my skin and suck the life out! Eeek! For others Its F.O.M.O ( Fear of Missing Out ) I seriously thought this stopped at High School or University but alas we are human and people are having F.O.M.O . Here are some ways to get over F.O.M.O.

Know yourself: This is a simple yet profound statement; there are so many people who have no idea who they are ,even as Adults! Sounds crazy but it's true, I figured if you knew who you are at your core , there would be no fear of missing out.


Do the damn thing: If you feel you are missing out on something that might be as simple as a popular party or life changing as going to College/University ... then do it! What are you waiting for? Time? Money? All it takes is a small step and a dedicated routine and before you know it you did that thing you were missing out on.

Get Over yourself : Ummm , just stop being a pain and complaining about missing out and literally get over yourself! Ever heard the statement "Mind over matter"? It's all in your mind that you are missing out on something which goes back to point #1. How do you know the thing you fear missing out on is for you?

Do you have F.O.M.O?

How to get Back at an Ex: The Boyfriend Edition

Thursday, June 25, 2015
Today's post was co- written by a close Blogger and Friend. We were watching an Episode of Wendy and this lady rented a Jetplane for US$75 and while her ex was at some place or another the plan flew by with a message of him begin a cheater. Being Wendy Williams fans we came up with some funny ways people could get back at an Ex.


Write a Tell all : This is for a girl who is into writing and knows how to slay with words. Tell the world how trifiling he was and all his bad/weird habits . If you would like to take it to the next step , publish that Book on Amazon.


Leave him a Car Note : No ,No .. not an actual Car note. If you know where he works or know of a popular spot where he hangs out, simply show up and make the biggest note you can think of and make sure you turn it so that when he gets in the Car he will see it.

Take a Selfie with his previous Ex: Guys are fragile creatures ( yeah right ) There is always that one ex that everybody bad mouths and deep down they still have feelings for them. Find that chick ... take a selfie and tag him on Instagram or Facebook.


Demand a Cashback: In relationships , couples give each other gifts and other random stuff. What you will do here is calculate all the stuff you bought , multiple that figure by the amount of years then add all the times you slept with him ...lol. Then all you do is demand he pays all that or you will release some pictures or Videos of him in bad positions ( literally )

Ladies , break-ups are hard for both Male & Female. As they say , the best best way to get back at an Ex is to be successful and let Karma handle the rest

It is highly recommended to NOT do anything that will land you in Jail.

This post was done in good humor and not to be taken seriously

What is a crazy break-up story you've heard?

The top 3 Online Problems of International Shoppers

Wednesday, June 24, 2015
 While Shopping Online can be therapeutic , time saving and an ends to a mean , let us discuss the “dark” side of this worldwide phenomenon! Follow the jump to see some of the challenges we face.

This post was based on real life experiences from real life International Shoppers based on a quick survey I conducted on Facebook  for all of you :-) If you see some of your frustrations please chime in by saying “yes “ or “ hmm mmm” (common Jamaican Frustration sounds) .
Store does not ship to Jamaica: Imagine you just discovered an Online store that has“thebomb.com” trends that suits your budget and more , there is a drop down menu of all the countries they ship to , you scroll down to “J” and you only see “Japan” . Depending on where the store is based , Jamaica is most certainly not considered an “International” country , why are we not on that list?
Shipping takes too long: Let’s not get into the “Sammy Dress” or “David Deal” issue , still waiting . This is mainly for people who shop on Ebay. Usually when you purchase an item , you will see “estimated shipping time/date”  and an actual day. You get all excited that you will get your item at that time , then a month goes by and nothing . You have to go over the entire process , contact the seller and wait for them to resolve an issue that suits them!  Ebay also has this “mystery” policy where they penalize you if there are too many “seller” issues . It’s not your fault that you did not receive the item when it was estimated to come to you.

The Wrong Item is sent: This is another popular mishap from Ebay. I purchased a lovely necklace with gold features because i also purchased a red dress that i thought would“pop” with a necklace with gold in it. When my necklace arrived it had Silver! I was told the necklace was out of stock and they had not updated the system so the Silver was sent . They were however kind enough to offer me a partial refund. Getting a partial refund helped to calm down my frustration , but the actual necklace that was shown in the picture would have been nice.
Shopping Online is a great fun experience , however when things go awry it can easily turn into frustrations.

Weird Beauty Tricks ... that Work!

Tuesday, June 23, 2015
Hi Guys! We live in a world where there is an alternative to almost everything! The every growing Beauty Industry is a 200 Billion Dollar Industry and new Products are released each year. As you know there are high end as well as Drug Store Products. 



Today I will be sharing some weird Beauty Tricks that actually work. Have I tried these myself? Some of them :-)

Steam Set Your Make-Up:  I do this on the daily because I'm all for getting ready in a flash! If you don't have a hot/cold water shower option; simply boil some water and put your face above it for a few minutes. The steam will no doubt set your Make-up while giving your face a nice dewy, plump finish. Think of it as a modern "Steam Facial".


Apple Cider De-Bloater: As Ladies, we have that special time of the month when we go from "Flats" to "Mrs Puff" ( Sponge-bob reference ) For me, I blow up  alot and it's noticeable for such a slim person. What I like to do is mix 1 Tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar with a glass of water and in 30 minutes you will be de-puffed:-)

Remove Dark Circles with Oranges: This Trick is quite popular on Pinterest; at first I saw the Pictures and thought it was a thing like when putting Blood on the face was popular. So, it is said that if you apply Orange or Coral Lipstick under the eyes it will remove Dark Circles. The Orange will work as a color corrector and will easily cover the dark circles. You will then follow up with Foundation or Concealer.


Use Vaseline to Set Perfume: I read about this trick in Tigerbeat over 10 years ago in High school! If you want your perfume to last longer , apply Vaseline to the areas you plan to spray and the Vaseline's texture will trap the scent and keep you fresh all day.


What are some weird Beauty Tricks you know or use?

RESHMA B CHAINS DEBUTS NEW COLLECTION AT CARIBBEAN FASHION WEEK 2015

Monday, June 22, 2015

British designer Reshma B debuted her most recent collection at last weekend at Caribbean Fashion Week in Kingston, Jamaica. The chains (which since launching have evolved into body chains and earrings) made their runway debut at CFW’s Emerging Designers Showcase on Friday. Pulse top models ORAINE BARRETT walked the runway, while three-time Vogue cover girl JENEIL WILLIAMS was spotted wearing a pair of Reshma B earrings in the front row.


Designer Reshma B capped the night by taking to the catwalk rocking a bright orange Day-Glo “Wah Gwan” chain, flashing her trademark peace sign, and snapping shots of the experience with a selfie stick. Kicking off the weekend with a memorable lively appearance on Jamaica’s leading TV morning show, CVM at Sunrise, alongside Pulse Jamaica co-director Romae Gordon, Reshma B completed a whirlwind schedule of radio, print, and online press. Her fashion week debut was one of the most anticipated collections at CFW’s 15th Anniversary. “When we first met I really liked the idea of the chains coming down the runway,” says Romae Gordon of Pulse. “They’re topical, they’re of the moment. They are so relevant to the social media space and can easily go viral. I’ve seen several people in the audience wearing them. Reshma is definitely on to something.” Since launching in February 2014, Reshma B Chains have been spotted around the necks of recording artists like Jhen√© Aiko, Lady Saw, Gyptian and Lauryn Hill. Reshma B has collaborated with Jamaican dancehall star Popcaan and Project Runway season 9 winner Anya Ayoung-Chee to create a custom piece for her ‘Canyaval’ brand.


Most recently Reshma B completed a custom order for Madonna prior to the launch of the megastar’s upcoming Rebel Heart tour.

The chains are available online at www.reshmabchains.com.

Reshma B is a British music journalist who circles the globe covering reggae, dancehall and related sounds for media outlets like ClashMusic, The Fader, Details, Boomshots and BBC radio. “I pick up all these slang expressions from the niche genres that I'm exposed to,” she says. “I started making these statement chains for myself whenever I discovered a word or phrase I thought was cool.” Inspired by the creative slang she heard in interviews she conducted with some of music's biggest stars, she began playing with her favorite phrases and turning them into designs. “Everyone would ask me about them—what do the words mean and where could they get one?” she recalls. “I began to share them with my friends, and ReshmaB Chains grew from there.”

5 Money Saving Hacks for the Modern Woman

Saturday, June 20, 2015
Hi Guys! Things are tight almost everywhere in the world (thanks to our declining economy). As women, we always strive to look good no matter the situation and in order to do so we have to have money. Today, I will be giving you a few tips on how to save a few extra bucks to give yourself a little treat every now and again.


Make it if you Can: As a woman who goes to a lot of Events, I would need a few hundred outfits & accessories each month. I don’t know about you but I don’t have it like that! What I like to do is make outfits and accessories. Fabric is waaay cheaper than buying something already made and you will definitely stand out in your own creation. That extra money could be used to help with a Bill or treat yourself to something else. Check out this Clutch I made for a Fashion Event!

D-I-Y STATEMENT CLUTCH
Rewards/Cashback Programs: These programs are a life saver, it’s like you are paid to shop then get money back in return. One program I really like is Giving Assistant which is a FREE Digital loyalty program with over 1,100 retailers that gives an average of 5% cash back after each online purchase. 2 of my favourite stores in this program are Forever21 and Amazon; Yes! 



They do have big name stores we are all familiar with so that is one of the many things I like about the Program. Signing up is super easy and takes about 10 secs! You can sign up with a current E-mail or Facebook; there is even an option to give some of your Cash back to your favourite charity. Another great thing about Giving Assistant is that the Coupon Codes will always work unlike most sites that have cumbersome codes and the pay-out is $1 which is sent days directly after your purchase! No longer will you have to sit for Days waiting on a check in the mail. To sign up, Visit the Giving Assistant Website and “JOIN NOW”

Selling Items Online: We all have those items in our closets we never wear but can’t seem to get rid of  (admit it) There is FREE Cash hanging in your Closet, literally! Why not go online and find stores that you can sell these items to? Sure you might not get it for the initial price but such is life; the minute after you purchased it, the value went down. You can make an extra 100 or even 1,000 just by selling your own items Online.

Get Your Hair Done for Free: What girl doesn’t like to get her hair done period and for FREE! That’s the icing on the Cake! This might sound too good to be true or a hair-brain scheme (pun intended) but it’s for real. There are many Cosmetology Training Programs where girls are looking for client’s hair to do to get a grade, find one of those in your area and you are good to go. I like to keep things simple by sticking to a simple Blow-Up rather than a Balayage just because I’m not sure of the skill level of the person.

D-I-Y Spa Day: Making your own Beauty Treatments just got easier thanks to Pinterest & YouTube:-) Facemasks, Body Scrubs and Body Butters are no longer limited to pricey Spas. Make your own Products from items you already have at home like Coffee, Honey and Even Oats! If you do it right, you can even bake a cake with the left-overs; now that’s being resourceful.

What are some creative ways you save money?

Naturebox Unboxing +Taste Test

Friday, June 19, 2015
Hi Guys!


For the first time ever I was able to try out a subscription service! I'm so glad the first one was Food related:-) Naturebox is a monthly subscription service that promotes healthy snacking for only $19.95 per month. each month you get to choose 5 healthy snacks & even the option to be surprised with the 5th Snack by having the company choose for you. I received the sample box that had 4 mini snack items & 1 Full Size item.

Dark Chocolate Nom Noms- Fullsize



This is Dark Chocolate with rolled oats which is only a 100 calories with a serving size of 1 piece and each packet contains 5 pieces. I like Oats but i'm not a fan of Dark Chocolate but i like the taste combination. f it was milk chocolate it would have tasted a lot better (in my opinion ) but I guess the dark chocolate works better with the texture of the Oats. 4/5

Cranberry Medley


Not a fan of Cranberry at all .. but! It also had pomegranate which is much sweeter so it was reallly reallly sweet! The texture reminded me of Gummy Bears and so did the smell. It's a great snack if you like Cran-Raisons because that's what it remind me of. 3/5

Masa Crisps


Of all the Snacks , these were my favorite. They are Corn Chips with Flaxseeds. They remind me of Fritos in terms of the taste and I didn't even taste the flax seeds ( maybe it's because I have no idea how they taste ) 5/5


Jalapeno Cashews


Cashews are expensive and I'm glad I was able to get these! They smell like a Pizza Hut Supreme Pizza with all the toppings! I liked the flavor .. but not the Jalapeno , I'm not a fan of spicy snacks but if like like things a bit spicy , it would be perfect. 3/5


Sweet Blueberry Almonds


These were my 2nd favorite! I prefer Almonds over peanuts and I thought these were the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. The Blueberry wasn't over powering and they lightly coated the Almonds with a little bit of powder sugar.  5/5

I plan on continuing with the subscription every other month since I can cancel my subscription at any time as I would like to try other subscription programs.

3 Haute Trends for Summer

Ready , Set , Go!

As you can already tell by the title above , this post is all about my top 3 Trends for Summer. There are a lot of "Trends" this Season from 70's bell bottoms to fringes and even plat-form slip ons. See below for my top pick items.




Black & White: Is Black & White ever out of Style? The great thing about the ole B/W is that pieces are easy to find and they are transitional. You can create several outfits with these pieces and they can be worn all year long! Be Bold and Mix Black and White Prints to really stand-out!


Mirrored Sunglasses: I can remember these being around in the 90's ( back in my hey days ..lol ) and were the rounded versions. As in Fashion & History , things always come back! You can get them in rounded , cat-eye , aviator and even abstract shapes. TIP: BE SURE TO GET ONE THAT COMPLIMENTS YOUR FACE SHAPE




Heeled Platforms: They threw platforms on everything! Remember yesterday's discussion on Fashion vs Style? Well , they are definitely in but! I like the one's that look more wearable... some of the styles I've seen looks like somebody was trying to Design a space ship and failed! Then somebody took that mess and turned them into Shoes. The most wearable ones I've seen so far are from Lulus.com.
