ZANSTYLE at Stylebest Biggest Sale of the Summer starts today

Monday, August 14, 2017

I do not know about anybody else but two words I love to hear in summer are “Summer Sale”. One of our recent (favorite) online shopping sites Stylebest.com is having a huge Summer Sale for a brand on their site called ZANSTYLE! We found some high quality clothing on sale and thought we would share a few of them with you. If you are interested in the ZANSTYLE Sale on Stylebest.com, keep reading.


We’ve decided to make things more visually appealing by selecting 3 items from the sale and show you how we would style them. See below for our top 3 picks.




Just in case you didn’t get the memo, the cold shoulder trend is here to stay! This dress is great for errands, brunch, an evening event or even a date if paired with the right accessories.





This just in – the shirt dress is trending and we are all for it! I love this trend because it gives you a lazy yet chic vibe and you can go from casual to dressy in no time. This wine color is great transitional colour for fall.



Ladies, you need a simple basic top in your wardrobe and this one from Stylebest is perfect! I like that there is a modern twist between basic and trendy! I chose this colour as I have no shade like this in my wardrobe and it’s always great to add a little colour to shake things up.

The ZANSTYLE sale on Stylebest runs from August 14- 21, 2017 and features quality items for both men and women. To purchase items from the sale, visit the Stylebest.com website and search for “ZANSTYLE” in the search bar. Be sure to always refer to the size guide on the site to select the correct size for your body type.

Order > $50, save $20 | Order $100 > save $50 (just limited for Zanstyle)

We're on a Break!

Tuesday, August 8, 2017
Hi Guys!


If you have been an avid reader of this Blog you know that I hate taking 'Blog breaks" simply because this is a fast paced business and views translate to being paid $$$ (let's be real)

We here at The Haute Lifestyle is undergoing a growth spurt thanks to my wonderful team Natasha, Dwayne and Dale. We will be experiencing positive changes in the next couple of months and we feel a break is necessary for us to have time to focus on projects while we re-brand and move into a new season of Blogging and Business. We will still release all sponsored posts and all other major commitments we made but there will be no daily Blogging.

We will be back in 2 weeks with fresh ideas and hopefully a new look!-- fingers crossed. In the interim, please check out our sponsored posts and we will also be sharing popular posts that you love.

Also, at the request of some of our readers here and overseas we have created a DONATE button to the right of the page for those who would like to make a donation.

Rapper, Actor, Comedian, T.v Personality and now Screenwriter/Film Producer, Nick Cannon last Tuesday released his film "King of the Dancehall" which pays homage to the Jamaican sub-culture of Dancehall. 

The multi-faceted Cannon released an exclusive preview of the movie on popular entertainment show ET and also appeared on "The View" with one of his co-stars in the movie Whoppi Goldberg. According to Cannon:

 "This film is Edutainment-- when you see the film you'll see that you're learning about a sub-culture that is global. When you see Beyonce' and Rihanna doing these dance moves this is where it originated from-- and it came from Kingston. Just the power of Jamaica in it self to celebrate their culture"

The film deemed as "A modern Dirty Dancing" sees Nick's character known as "Tarzan" undergoing struggles and changes that leads him to Jamaica in hopes of starting a new chapter of his life and to support his mother played by Whoopi Goldberg who is ill. Tarzan experiences the Jamaican lifestyle where it's "Gangsta" by day and Dancehall by night where he meets a friendly Jamaican girl in "the dancehall' who teaches him about the dance and culture.


The movie also features Busta Rhymes, Louis Gossett Jr., Kreesha Turner and the lead female, new comer Kimberly Patterson.

The movie is available on YouTube Red, which is a paid subscription channel on YouTube that offers high quality movies. However, when The Haute Lifestyle team tried to use YouTube Red, it was realized that it is not available in Jamaica. We went on YouTube Red chat and spoke to a representative as it relates to using the platform, however our efforts were futile. We are curious to know, how and where you will be watching the movie?

Did Nick make the right choice by releasing the Movie on YouTube Red?
Also let us know what you thought about the movie (if you watched)

#Branding/ Identity crisis

Wednesday, August 2, 2017
Hi Guys!

We are in the month of August and some have said August is the month for new beginnings. New Jobs, new house, new opportunity , new blog name? We are in a bit of a predicament!

We recently realized that there is brand confusion with "Haute"! This became apparent when an event we will be sponsoring next month seemed to have googled "The Haute Lifestyle" and used the first random logo they found with the name rather than using the logo we actually sent them with our actual branding! How could they have been so careless? We could run into serious trouble for them using that logo! It then dawned on us after a whatsapp group chat they we need to change our name and branding!

We are not opposed to change and starting over but this will take some time to get the right name and branding as things rushed never work out well for anyone. For the next couple of months, we will be experimenting with names and looks (things might get crazy) but we ask that you stick with us and trust the process.

Help us find a new name!

Rihanna x Kendrick Lamar = Loyalty

Monday, July 31, 2017

Rihanna is trending again for another successful collab but this time with Kendrick Lamar. The video for their single Loyalty premiered last Thursday on YouTube and is already a major hit!

The video opens with a ferocious dog barking in what looks like a dark alley. It's eyes reflect a bright light that looks as if it has been charmed/charged to attack those who come close to it. The scene transitions with what looks like "a pleasure party" with scantily clad women dancing around the singer who appears to be blindfolded. Think a modern day Bonnie and Clyde type of vibe with a dark hip hop/rap twist and you get the concept of "Loyalty".


The imagery is strong in this one and is deep and definitely not for shallow thinkers. There were scenes where people were seen sinking into a nether region--sunken place or nah?? We the viewers are left to decide. With each situation that arises Kendrick is tempted to stray but remains loyal to his beau (Rihanna) hence the name of the song.


Since it's release, the video has garnered over 15 million views and continues to grow day after day. One thing we know for sure is that women will be heavily influenced by Rihanna's hair, make-up and outfit (as they always do) for the Summer.

Do you like the video? Tell us your thoughts
