A Holiday Style Guide

Tuesday, December 19, 2017
The clock is ticking ladies, and there is very little time left before the holiday spirit takes over. For some of us, the excitement has already sneaked in, and there is nothing wrong with that – the sooner you start getting merry the longer your joy will last. Now, your attire should definitely match your level of excitement, as since there is a strong possibility that you’ll be attending more than one holiday event you should follow the Boy Scout rule and always be prepared. After all, you don’t want to be seen (and photographed) in the same
outfit twice. To that end, we have created what we believe to be the ultimate holiday style guide, so make sure you stay tuned because things are about to get interesting.

A new romance

When we think of sweaters the mind instantly goes to one of the two places – chunky and cozy and
ugly Christmas sweater. However, the secret option number three hides an unexpected way to rock a sweater
and still look incredibly chic and elegant. A short sweater in a pretty pastel hue is the key to success. Now,
instead of wearing it with a white button-down and jeans as you probably normally would, why not elevate it
with a gorgeous tulle skirts with some serious sparkle? It might be just a tad chilly to pull of open-toe sandals,
but nude pumps would go wonderfully with this combo. Keep the hair down in soft waves and the makeup
minimal and luminous. This outfit is perfect for daytime Christmas parties or even family gatherings.

The LBD on a whole new plane

Going with a little black dress is always a good idea. There is absolutely no way you can make a mistake with
this choice of color, especially if you stick to a cut that is flattering for your body type. For instance, if you have
curves for days, the perfect plus size special occasion dresses are the ones made with flowy fabrics, with
rushing in all the right places. Floor-length dresses do wonders for elongating the legs and a high slit is perfect
for a touch of drama. Pear shaped ladies look best in halter dresses, while for petite ones, the best cut is the
Audrey Hepburn aka a sheath dress. Keep the jewelry minimalistic – gold and silver with geometric shapes with
clutches to match. Black dresses are perfect for truly upscale events for which you want to shine – they’re

Jingle bell rock

If you’re a stickler for tradition and love your red for the holidays, go ahead and put that red dress on. Aside
from it being the official color of the F/W 2017 season, it’s the eternally official Christmas color so you’ll be
both the epitome of trendiness and the Christmas spirit. You can go with a stunning deep red silk dress with
matching lace-up heels if you want the achieve a true wow effect, or pull an Emilia Clarke in Me Before You
with a cap-sleeve tea-length show-stopper. Wear it with confidence – aka lose the scarf, and don’t forget the
mandatory red lip. As Ryan Gosling says in Crazy, Stupid Love – wear that dress like you’re doing it a favor.
Patent leather pumps are a must in this case.

Let it shine

Ok, what’s Christmas without a bit of glitter, right? Now, as the head-to-toe glitter outfit has unfortunately gone
out of style, you will have to choose your sequin battles wisely. For daytime holiday events, a great combination
is the one spotted on Solange. A flowy black blouse paired with wide leg golden sequin pants is the
embodiment of casual chic, although this could also be rocked for an evening event and look just as dressy.
However, if you do want to truly shine bright like a diamond, (and show off those curves) take a cue from
Sara Foster and opt for a silver sequin skirt. You could tone the look down with a simple white tee and a classy
black blazer, or dress it up even more with a satin camisole top with lace and top the look off with a great
statement necklace. Either way, heads will turn.

Eyevage Review – Is It The Best Eye Cream For You?

Saturday, December 16, 2017

Beauty products have become more popular than ever before. Even though beauty regimens have been followed by many people since ancient times, in the modern world, a beauty regimen has become an essential part of life – many people are unable to go a day without taking good care of their skin. At the same time, more and more companies are rising up and offering their own unique blends of beauty products.

In many cases, these companies are simply launching product lines in order to profit from their customers, but there are a few companies that truly care about customer satisfaction and wants to ensure that each of their customers is able to enjoy younger-looking, vibrant and glowing skin after using the products they have created.

While facial cleansers, night creams, day creams and general moisturizers have become very popular, a particular type of product that many people tend to overlook when it comes to an effective beauty regimen is a gentle, yet effective eye cream.

In this post, we would like to take a look at what makes an eye cream effective, as well as introduce our readers to a professional eye cream by Solvaderm, named Eyevage.

We will also consider Eyevage reviews found on the internet to provide an overview of how this product has helped past customers care for the area around their eyes without causing irritation or any other potential side-effect.

The Different Types Of Eye Creams On The Market

One of the most important factors that need to be kept in mind when selecting an eye cream to be added to a person’s daily beauty regimen is the fact that there are many different types of eye creams currently available on the market.

This means that not every eye cream is suitable for every person. Garnier recommends first considering the particular problems a person may be experiencing with the patches of skin around their eyes, and then to determine which type of eye cream would be most suitable for treating that problem. Dry skin, dark circles, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles are some of the most common issues that people may experience.

Some creams are able to attend to all of these problems with one potent solution, while others would rather only attend to one or two of these problems.

Solvaderm’s Eyevage: What You Should Know About This Product

There is quite a lot of different eye creams on the market in the modern world, which often confuses a person looking for an effective all-around eye cream that can help them attend to common problems.

At the same time, such a person may want a product that is able to help them maintain healthy skin around the eyes, even if they are not experiencing any significant problems. Eyevage, one of Solvaderm’s products, has been recognized as one of the most beneficial eye creams when it comes to choosing a dermatological problem to care for the area around the eyes.

This product contains an all-natural formula that has been developed based on a large number of different scientific studies. The product aims to address common problems that a person may experience with the skin that is found around their eyes, but without irritating this part of the face or causing excessive dryness like some other products are known to do.

How Much Does Solvaderm’s Eyevage Cost?

Since Solvaderm’s Eyevage is a dermatological product that is used by dermatologists and numerous skincare experts to treat common problems their customers are experiencing, many people may think that the product would be excessively expensive.

Fortunately, Eyevage has a very reasonable price tag that makes the product more accessible to the general population experiencing signs of aging around their eyes. Solvaderm’s Eyevage costs $74.99 per bottle. Each bottle contains 15 milliliters of the eye cream and should last a customer approximately one month due to the small amount of cream that is used per application.

How Should You Use Solvaderm’s Eyevage?

Solvaderm’s Eyevage is easy to use and can be included in an existing beauty regimen without having to undergo any extra steps, except for applying this product in addition to the existing beauty products utilizes in the regimen. It is important not to apply Eyevage to the face while dirty; thus washing the face should always be the first step. A very small amount of this eye cream should be dabbed on the skin around both eyes, but without excessively rubbing, which may cause irritation.

What Ingredients Make Solvaderm’s Eyevage So Impressive?

Eyevage is one of the most advanced professional-strength products on the market that has been specifically developed to target the sensitive skin around a user’s eyes.

The product contains a large number of natural ingredients to ensure the user is able to experience anti-aging benefits, but without causing damage to their skin. Some of the most important ingredients to mention include Arnica Montana Extract, Soybean Protein, Phytonadione, Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane.

What Results Should You Expect To See When Using Solvaderm’s Eyevage

Eyevage is not simply a generic eye cream that can be found on the shelves at the local pharmacy or beauty supply store, but rather a dermatological product that contains professional-strength ingredients for powerful results.

Customers who are using this product can expect to find the skin around their eyes starting to tighten after just a little while. The skin will also start to become brighter and dark circles will gradually disappear. Additionally, the skin will appear less saggy. Fine lines, crow’s feet and other potential signs of aging will also start to fade at a gradual pace.

Impressive, Isn’t It?

There are hundreds of different beauty brands to choose from when it comes to selecting products to be added to a person’s daily beauty regimen in the modern world. Many of these brands claim to product some of the best eye creams on the market, but only a select few are truly able to provide their customers with safe, yet highly-effect products that are able to address all of the most common problems people experience with the sensitive skin around their eyes. Solvaderm’s Eyevage is one of these select few, offering a completely natural formula that has been developed by top dermatologists to deliver a potent dose of effective ingredients to target crow’s feet, fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration without irritating these particularly sensitive areas of skin.

Young Chefs Season 2: The High School Edition

Friday, December 15, 2017
Chef Latoya Panton
In today’s society, Latoya Panton stands out as a rare combination of humble, hardworking, dedicated and passionate about the Culinary Arts.  She is the CEO of Delicious Occasions Catering & Cooking Classes, which is her very own catering company that she founded after studying Institutional and Catering Management at the University of Technology, Jamaica.

She has been in the Culinary Industry for several years and is highly respected by her peers for her contributions to the Industry and also for developing Jamaica’s first Cooking Reality Series, Young Chefs.

Young Chefs is essentially the brain-child of Panton as a way to marry her love for cooking and also for teaching and nurturing young children to follow their passions to pursue a career in the Culinary Arts. Young Chefs will be launching its second season in 2018 on TVJ which will be dubbed  “High School Edition”.

The Haute Lifestyle had the privilege to interview the “Young Chef” recently and she was extremely calm and knowledgeable and it was hard to believe that someone so accomplished could be so easy to speak with. Read the exclusive interview below.

THL: Tell us a bit about your culinary background?
L.P: I’ve been cooking ever since I can remember; In High School I was involved in everything that was food at St. Jago, from Food & Nutrition to Culinary competitions. While I was in High School in 5th form, there was a cooking competition Geddes BWIA Caribbean Culinary Competition which they had at the Pegasus and I entered that competition and I won a trip to Antigua and Martinique for the summer. This competition “wet my appetite” to go into the field even more than before. After leaving St. Jago in 6th Form, I went on to UTECH to study Institutional and Catering Management which I thoroughly enjoyed and after that I was at Disney for 1 year working in Food & Beverage then I returned home wanting to start my own business.  Starting a Business was always a dream of mine so I came back home and tested the waters and tested myself to see if this is something I wanted to do. The biggest caterer at the time was Lorraine Fung and I went on some catering jobs with her where we catered  to hundreds of people and I worked for 2 days straight without sleep and at the end of that I was exhausted and I was ready to go again. This was when I really knew what I wanted to do and the rest as they say is history. I started my own business Delicious Occasion Catering and Cooking Classes.

THL: Give us an overview of “Young Chefs” and why you decided to create the show
L.P: Young Chefs the TV Show started out from my 10 years of cooking and giving cooking lessons to young kids where I also had Summer Classes. I kept seeing that these classes were 1 week long and students that came to me for 1 week; they started cooking from the Monday morning and their parents didn’t allow them to cook in the Kitchen before. There were 8 year olds and teenagers who came in and they were passionate, they really enjoyed cooking and they came on a Monday and by Friday they left me with my mouth wide open! They were doing so well—they had mastered their knife skills, they were confident and they were just cooking. I did a gourmet cooking class that year when I first thought of doing the show and what I saw was even more amazing.  I’ve always thought about doing a cooking show and I said this is it! I’m going to do a cooking show with these young children and show Jamaica what is possible once there is a passion and that is how I just jumped! I didn’t think about the “how” or “why” or even money, I just got up and found someone who could help with Marketing, I knew someone who did production and I just jumped into the water and Young Chefs was created.

THL: How is Season 2 different from Season 1?
L.P: This season will be High School Children because I teach children from as young as 4 years old all the way up to High School and during the summer we have College students as well as our adult classes. The High School students I saw from the first season were something that represented what we did in the summer classes. We have Young Chefs 1- Beginners, Young Chefs 2- International Foods, Young Chefs Baking, Young Chefs Gourmet and Young Chefs College Edition. Usually you graduate from one to the next and I thought I would make the show go in that same order, where I would have done Young Chef 1 the younger children and the move on to the High School and then possibly the college edition. That was the thinking as to why I wanted High School students this time around as teenagers are able to take on much more than the younger children.  I can go deeper as it relates to the challenges and I want to show the audience what young people are capable of.  In High School you are thinking about careers and I just want to expose that to young people who might not know what they want to do. Having a career in the Culinary Industry is available and it’s exciting. Season 2 is moving the show over to the High School Edition.
THL: What would you say distinguishes your show from other TV cooking shows?
L.P:  In our show, it is reality but nothing is staged or done ahead.  The children are passionate about cooking and what you will be seeing on screen is what actually happens. This is real cooking, nothing is doctored or rehearsed … it is exactly what happens. It makes it a bit more exciting to watch and just to see what really can come out of these children. What they will be prepared on is nothing that will come from the challenges. They won’t be in any way prepared ahead of time so everything they do will be done on spot.

THL: What inspires you on a daily basis?
L.P:  Just knowing that food, the culinary arts is something that you cannot master. That is what I love about food, no matter what, there is always more to learn. There is just more to learn and that is definitely something that keeps me going, and keeps me trying to reach the top. That makes it more fun for me as the challenge remains – the daily inspiration even when I’m having my cooking classes, knowing that I will be helping to bring out the creativity of these young people. Some of these children don’t even know the talent they have and knowing that I can help to pull this out of them is my inspiration each day.  I’ve been working on getting cooking clubs in High Schools and there is now one at St. Georges; these young men don’t have a kitchen at school at all. We cook in classrooms on desks and just to see what is coming out of these young men despite all the odds of not having a kitchen are the things that inspire me and to know that in the future some of them might take this on as a career and I know they will be successful. This in itself is an inspiration.

THL: What are 3 words people use to describe you?
L.P: Some people say I’m calm, passionate and always wanting to be better.

THL: Finish the sentence … “when I’m not cooking I’m …
L.P: Studying about food! it’s always something food related when I’m not actually cooking.  I do a lot of online courses, I am forever just learning and seeking more inspiration as it relates to food and just thinking of new ways I can engage my young chefs in class when we have clubs and when we go to Georges; what can I do to make this more fun and creative? My mind is always on food in some way.

Latoya Panton is a trained chef with an honours diploma in Institutional and Catering Management from the University of Technology. Latoya has worked internationally with Walt Disney Resorts before returning home to Jamaica to pursue catering and cooking school businesses. 
Young Chefs” will begin production in January 2018.
