Tea Tree Skincare Haul!

Hey guys!

I did a little retail therapy recently and I picked up a few skincare items from The Body Shop and our very own Jamaican brand Irie Rock. I decided to dive in a try out these products because I really wanted to revamp my skincare regimen and The Body Shop had a recent 40% off online sale and Irie Rock had their products on sale at the recent Emancipendence Sale at Nettle & Moss.

Both these brands boast their own Tea Tree skincare line and if you don't know much about the great benefits of Tea Tree Oil check out the post I did here a while back where I raved about it.

Tea Tree Oil has so many great benefits for the skin, and even though it has a very pungent scent, I still love it! So here's a quick look at what I picked up

1. Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion (I got this one free with  my online order!!)
2. Irie Rock Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Refreshing Facial Toner & Treatment with Salicylic Acid
3. Tea Tree Pore Minimiser (figured I'd use this as my makeup primer)
4. Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub
5. Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash
6. Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes
7. Tea Tree Face Mask (got a sample size just so I could try it out)

If you guys have tried anything I've purchased, let me know how they worked out for you!
See ya later

Hi everyone!! I know I know, long time no see but I figured that I would just bring you all this quick PSA on a great event that would be taking place on June 8, 2014 at the Knutsford Court's the 2nd Annual Naturals Night Out !!!

Being a naturalista myself I'm definitely eager to go to the event to get a few tips and tricks on how to take care of and style my own hair because Lord knows I need some help in that department. The great thing about the event is that it's not only limited to naturalistas, so come as you are.... braids, relaxed, transitioning, kinks and coils everyone is welcomed to attend the event and you'll be sure to get great hair care advice.

Current Favourite Beauty Bits

Vaseline Total Moisture 
I have really dry skin and this is a life saver for me. I combine it with my regular body lotion to provide that extra moisture without being greasy. 

Marc Jacobs Daisy
This perfume has been on my wish list for a while now so I am very happy that I finally have it. It is so flowery and fresh. I love girly scents so this perfect for me.

MAC - Cleanse Off Oil
This is an oil base make-up remover. I personally would have never purchased this for myself, but I was gifted it for my birthday, but when it finishes I will definitely be repurchasing it. It removes EVERYTHING...and when I say everything, I mean everything!!! With other make-up removers I would have to put in effect to remove my waterproof eyeliner or mascara, but with this removing them is such a breeze. Also, because it is oil base a little goes a long way.

Essie - Butler Please
Talk about a nail polish colour that pops!!! This nail polish has been trending for a while now and I completely understand why. It is so pretty on girls of every skin colour. I just cannot get enough of it.

NanaCoco - Hidden Desire
I picked up this lipgloss at a pharmacy. I never heard about the brand before but I loved their packaging and I was looking for a nude everyday lipgloss. The quality of this lip gloss is superb. I love everything about this gloss. It is pigmented, long lasting and it also smells really yummy! I cannot wait to get some more, I want them in every colour.

Wedding Outfit

I recently attended a wedding of some friends of mine and I decided to go with a sexy yet sophisticated midi dress. The dress itself is very simple but the print adds that extra "umpf" that the dress needed. Because the print can become a bit over bearing, I decided to wear minimal accessories. It is important to note that when you are wearing a dominant print you should opt for simple accessories because you don't want everything you are wearing competing for attention. The accessories I chose where my simple black strappy sandals, which are fairly comfortable because the heel is not very high, along with my gold Michael Kors boyfriend watch. 

Dress: ASOS
Shoes: ASOS
Watch: Michael Kors

My "Some Like It Vintage" Experience

I have been meaning to do a post on Some Like It Vintage ever since they launched, but if you have been following our blog for a while now you will come to notice that we like to make our blog posts personal. With that, before I did any type of post on the brand I wanted to personally have the "Some Like It Vintage" experience first. So when they launched their "Baywatch Swimsuit Collection" I got really excited. I have always been obsessed with swimwear and I have collected quite a few over the years. 

If you haven't been in the fashion loop lately, then it would be very necessary to inform you that "vintage" pieces are trending now and these "Baywatch Swimsuits" could not have come at a more perfect time. Not only is the one-piece cut swimwear trending, it is also perfect for hiding a not so perfect mid section. With that said...  

I really wanted to do a post on my "Some Like It Vintage" experience. When I saw the post of the launch of the collection the first thing that caught my eyes were how bright and vibrant the colours were. I immediately fell in love. Placing the order was surprisingly fast as it was done via email and I got a quick response which I really liked. Within about two days the swimsuit was personally delivered to me by Tameka, who was such a doll. I described the specific cut I was looking for and she was willing to change the swimwear for me if I wasn't happy with the one I got. However, I LOVED the swimsuit I chose. It fits perfectly and I was impressed by the quality as well. Needless to say I am definitely a happy customer.

It's so lovely to be blogging again,
