Rihanna x Puma 's Marie Antoinette Inspired Debut at Paris Fashion Week

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

New York Fashion Week is so 2 Weeks ago and it's all about Paris Fashion Week! Paris is one of the top Fashion Destinations in the world and of course we were expecting to see one of a kind Fashion Looks. Our  official "bad gyal" Rihanna debut her latest line with Puma and we can't help to think how much it reminded us of Marie Antoinette!


The collection featured an interesting twist on Ultra Wide Pants , Knee Length Sleeves and Crazy Ruffles ( pretty much Rihanna's style ). Everything was Pink , Green and Lavender .









Decadent Lifestyles , Wild Fashion Choices and claiming the title of " Bad Girl" of your generation are just a few things Rihanna and Marie Antoinette have in common . Paris was the perfect place to launch this collection as it was where Marie Antoinette lived and it's a great way for Puma to truly break into the International Market.

Fill bowls with exfoliators , astringents , Moisturizers and all the skincare products you will need. You can the the commercial route ( what you purchase in stores ) or you can go the natural way. For this you can use things like oats , brown sugar , honey , plain yogurt. Also on deck should be essential oils : Grape seed oil , Peppermint ,  Lavender and Rosemary. Here is a mask you can try :

How I cleared my Hormonal Acne

I've never had Acne as a Teenager but as soon as I turned 29 in February of this year ... wham! Hormonal Breakouts hit me as fast as the Brangelina Divorce ... then can the Hormonal Acne.

What it is



Acne is a condition of the skin. It affects mainly the face and upper trunk and involves the base of hairs.
There is a range of severity to acne. The lesions in the skin formed by acne include comedones, which can be open or closed plugs that form at the base of hairs. Production of the hormone testosterone rises during puberty. This causes greasy skin because it increases production of sebum, the oily substance secreted at the base of hairs to protect and lubricate the skin.- Medical News Today


How I cleared it


Hormonal Acne is not a term used by in the medical profession as it's mainly used on the Internet and Magazines. If you receive a breakout at the same place on your face every month when you get your period , it is considered hormonal breakout. I actually knew it was hormonal acne because the breakout only came before or during my period and it was the same place. I kid you not , its like the same bumps kept re-immerging in the exact same spot and they left marks. There were a number of things I did to clear it which were :

  • Acne Face-Wash: Since this type of Acne was not severe , I got an over the counter Acne Face wash that was gentle. I used the Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Control which I used twice daily ( morning and night ) wit warm water. *Black African Soap is another great option to help with the clearing process*
  • Astringent: This was like my anti-septic which I used to give my face a complete clean and also to help heal the break-outs faster. I decided to go the natural route and use witch hazel , but you can use any over the counter Astringent.
  • Moisturizer: One thing with any Acne Wash ( even the gentle ones ) is that it leaves your skin dry! To combat this I had to use a moisturizer to make my skin supple. Again , I went the natural route and opted for Raw Shea Butter. 
  • Dark Spot Remover: Please be advised , this is not a skin bleaching product so you won't have to worry! I used the Palmer's Skin Success Anti Dark Spot , Dark Spot Corrector which I got in Walmart for $6.75. It is recommended to be used twice daily for a period of no more than 3 months. I was skeptic about finding a product like this because I did not want to lighten my skin , after going through several of them on the shelf , I chose this because it does not lighten the skin. It gradually fades the dark spots. I can report success as I see where the marks that were a bright black have faded to a less noticeable color and my skin tone is in tact :-) 
  • Vitamins: I decided to add a multi Vitamin to my daily intake because there were so many things I lacked from food ( as a picky eater )and these would add just that. The Vitamins I take are Vitafusion MultiVites and they have 50% Vitamin E which is great for the skin.
  • Bonus Product: Bio Oil , this was actually just randomly laying around the house and It has so many purposes. It is great for : Scars , Stretch Marks , Uneven Skin tone , Aging Skin , Dehydrated Skin. 


The steps I've taken to clear my skin might be a lot different from the ones you take as well as they might be similar. I wanna know how you clear your Hormonal Acne ... comment below.

Skincare Tips for ALMOST 30 Year Olds

Monday, September 26, 2016
Hi Guys!


Welcome to Haute People Skintastic Week 2016! We did this last year and it got lots of love ( and views ) and we've decided to bring it back. For this entire week , it will be all about skincare and generally how to love our skin! Keep reading as we jump into our first post :-)




It is believed that the aging process start as early as 18 ... yes you heard that right while you are still in your teens. Depending on your ethnicity and skin type you might even start to see the early signs of aging which include fine lines and wrinkles. For my ladies who are in their mid to late 20's our skin changes quite rapidly and if you don't start caring for it , you could end up looking 10 times older than your actual age. Here are some tips to keep your skin looking fleeky!


Moisturize: Visible signs of aging first occur on your face! As we approach that 30 mark , we start to loose the elasticity in our skin and you will find your skin looking a bit dry. The solution is simple .. moisturize! Be sure to look for a moisturizer that have an SPF built into the formula.


Stay Hydrated: I am not a water drinker nor do I believe water has magical powers! I did however try that 30 day water challenge and I must admit I saw where my skin looked fresh! ( As if I needed to look any younger ) Our bodies are about 70 % water and that means we need to drink water to keep our cells and other organs functioning the way they are meant to. Your water intake depends on your lifestyle and your weight , drinking 8 glasses of water is not recommended for every body ... literally.

Maintain a Balanced Diet: What you put in your body will reflect on the outside of your body , you know that part people see! If you are eating fast food everyday and things loaded with cholesterol , your pores will get clogged and believe me it will show on your skin. You might end up with saggy skin and that raccoon look under the eyes. Try to incorporate fruits and veggies and ensure that you are getting a little bit of everything from the various food groups.


Wear Sunscreen Everyday: Wait ...what? Ladies , stay with me on this one. Our skin is not made for direct exposure to the sun. Direct exposure to the Sun causes age spots and nobody wants that! Another plus to wearing sunscreen everyday is that it won't allow you skin to get dried out when you go out in the sun!



Find a Good Dermatologist: I know what you are thinking "augh , that will cost me money " , Maybe it will ... maybe it won't. As you approach that 30 mark , your skin will need extra TLC and you might need professional care. This is where regular facials and treatments will come in that will help with any problem areas you might have.

Turning 30 is definitely not scary and is inevitable. As women we should understand that for every age and stage of our lives our skin will change and need special care and attention. Let us truly spend the time to look after our skin after-all , it is the largest organ.

The Council begins ‘The Final Countdown’

Sunday, September 25, 2016



After releasing Council Arts a year ago, Kingston, Jamaica’s super group of MCs, The Council, has finally released another single from its upcoming album titled Nothing Else Matters. The new track, The Final Countdown, features Nomad Carlos (@NomadCarlos) , Inztinkz (@inztinkz) and The Sickest Drama (TSD) (@thesickestdrama) welcoming a new era over a suspenseful musical backdrop.
With a post-apocalyptic feel, reminiscent of the 1999 New Year’s Eve, Nomad Carlos, in the chorus, asks, “Could this be the year that our minds are free?” He later declares: “The time has begun / Either live long or you gon’ die young”.
The song’s verses from Nomad Carlos, Inztinkz and TSD describe different New Year celebrations in New York and Kingston, while paying tribute to various Reggae legends.

The Council is the four-member crew (including Five Steez who does not appear on this track) behind Kingston’s premier Hip Hop event which ran from 2012 to 2015. It is also part of the management of Gambling House Recording Studio, the Mecca of Hip Hop in Kingston.


The Council took a break from staging events to create an album together, after many years of collaborating as solo rappers. The release date for The Council’s album, Nothing Else Matters, is still yet to be announced.
