5 Products You Need For Amazing Summer Skin

sisley cellulinov

Never is it more important to have great looking skin than in the summer. Bathing suits, sundresses, denim cut-offs – all of these look better with healthy, glowing skin. No scaly, dry or ashy limbs need apply. Typically I begin getting my body summer ready a month or two before, but trust me there are [...]

Introducing L’Occitane au Brésil

L'Occitane au Bresil Vitoria Jenipapa

I’m Jamaican, so not getting excited about the World Cup would be tantamount to disliking Reggae music or Jerk Chicken. As a Jamaican, football (or soccer) is just something you are born loving.  With that said, when I saw that L’Occitane, one of my favorite brands, launched a new collection with ingredients from the 2014 [...]

Coming up Roses – 3 Rose Note Perfumes to Try Right Now

Roses de Chloe

I have developed a minor obsession with roses that started about a year ago when I received a floral arrangement that was so fragrant that it filled my apartment with an overwhelming aroma of awesomeness.

nest fragrances midnight fleur

2013 has come and gone, but my beauty favorites from this past year are here to stay.    Narrowing down the list of best beauty products was not easy but someone’s gotta do it.  And I selflessly gave of my skin, hair, face and body for the task.  It’s like I am a beauty blogging [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: philosophy loveswept

philosphy loveswept

With Valentine’s Day less than two weeks away, it would be entirely un-American to review philosophy loveswept and not, well – mention Valentine’s Day. Its sparkly floral embrace has a classic feminine feel, making it an easy pick for the big day of love. It’s the kind of scent that a guy can march right into [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: ESCADA Born In Paradise

#ESCADABIP

What’s your source of inspiration? No, seriously…real question. Sometimes we’re inspired by people — like that tell-it-like-it-is auntie who always delivers THE best snappy comebacks at Thanksgiving dinner…and you think, “ahh, to have that sort of confidence”. Sometimes we’re inspired by places — like a recent mood-elevating vacation that made you reevaluate life and promise [...]
