    On 2014

    Good bye. This year picked me up by the feet, hung me upside down and rattled me til everything I thought I knew fell out of my mind and I was forced to pick them all up and start again. It’s hard not to get emotional writing this…and that’s weird right, because I’m sure I don’t…

  • A Christmas Tag on Christmas Eve

    1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s? Love Actually is hands down the one Christmas movie I HAVE to watch every single year. I also love It’s a Wonderful Life. 2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning? Christmas morning with my family. 3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?…

    Pencil This In // Christmas Pop Ups

    There has been NO shortage of shopping opportunities over the last month and a half. Since Bits and Pieces kicked things off in November, every time you turn, there has been a pop up sale or market. I’m not complaining, of course. Christmas markets are, for me, where all of this began. My first trip…

    My Christmas Wishlist 2014

    Hulllooooooo folks! My FAVOURITE time of year is upon us! I’m a huge Christmas nerd (nevermind my Christmas tree isn’t up yet) and to me there’s no greater joy than being able to give thoughtful, meaningful, beautiful gifts to my best friends and family.

Conceptualised as a space for local small businesses, artists, designers, and pretty much anyone with a creative passion to be able to showcase…

    Introducing // The Decorative Pillow Collection by Toni Crockett Design

    I don’t think there’s a single woman in the world who wouldn’t want her home to be as fabulously outfitted as she is. We’re blessed in Trinidad to have a wealth of interior décor stores and interior designers to bring our homes up to the standard we hold for our own personal style. One such…

    Beauty Bomb // L’Oreal-a-palooza

    I’ve said it before somewhere that I never get too adventurous with my makeup. I think if I had to describe my ‘look’ it would be ‘minimalist’. I couldn’t live without moisturiser, a decent BB cream and the blackest eyeliner and mascara combo I can manage. L’Oreal Trinidad & Tobago was kind enough to give…

    Beauty Bomb // Batiste Dry Shampoo

    Pretty sure it’s no secret to anyone that I’m ridiculously low maintenance when it comes to my hair. I mean I do my duty and wash it twice a week, but I take no pleasure in the preening and styling that many girls do. I guess I have neither the patience nor the hand-eye coordination to…

It’s those three little words that every woman is dying to hear – Pop Up Shop. A Pop Up of massive proportions…
