In my humble, completely unprofessional opinion, there’s no better way to…

    East people…our time has come! Finally there’s a shopping resource in the east for people who want to put their money where their mouth is and buy locally (and regionally) made clothing, accessories and beauty products.

    My Top Monday Wear Picks

    Monday weaaaarrrrrrr. Love it, hate it, doh care about it…Monday wear is here to stay! And I’m pretty neutral on the topic, I think everyone has the right to spend their hard earned money how they choose, and if that choice involves dropping a cool $10K on a costume, then another $1200 on top of…

  • Port of Spain Style by Maya Cozier

    A while back I was asked, rather spontaneously, to be interviewed for a short film that Maya Cozier was shooting during her summer break from school. Of course I obliged, and yesterday, Maya posted the finished product for all to see. Kudos to Maya for great production quality, fab story-telling and a cast of super…

    Ceola does Colombiamoda // Day 2

    My Day 2 and Colombiamoda’s official Day 1, Tuesday was a very long but very exciting experience.

Not to say I took a glimpse backstage or anything, but the entire operation from the point of…

    Ceola does Colombiamoda // Day 1

    Ok so some of you may have figured out by now that I am in the land that gave us Shakira, Gabriel García Márquez and James Rodriguez (no ladies…I am yet to see him or any of his doppelgängers). To be more specific, I’m in Medellín, the former stomping grounds of one Pablo Escobar, and…
