#LiveWithFive featuring Lasonta Sealy

Heidi had this great idea to conduct short interviews on Instagram . We spoke to a great group of people from various walks of life about their passions, dealing with the pandemic, their views on entrepreneurship, etc. #LiveWithFive was an Instagram series that we're bringing over to the blog. First up we have a long time supporter of the brand and our dear friend Lasonta. What we really really appreciate about her is that she loves local brands just as much as we do. She's also the beauty #NoBuy champion 😂 yet she's not afraid to try new things. We love learning from our community so we hope to share some of their tips with you .

Wish List Update

 If you're trying to curb your shopping habits, a wish list is a great tool. Write it down. Get it all out. Then wait a week and see if you're still interested .

And my love for Chikuhodo brushes has not relented. p.s. if you're ordering from Visage USA get your brushes engraved. Sunday Riley Face Oils Juno is still eluding me but I did try Artemis .

InYouvations has closed

😥 In either 2013 or 2014 I was on a quest to find Bath and Body Works 3 Wick Candles in Barbados. First place I saw them was in Bio Beauty ...for $80 #$%^&*@ dollars. Then I stumbled upon InYouvations in 2013. Taken October 2013 Sadly 2020 marks the end of an era. InYouvations closed its doors at the end of August. We gotta look elsewhere for our Bath and Body Works fix. At this point I just waiting fuh de aliens to announce their presence hear! So what's next?  Well if you're a die hard fan there's shopping from the site directly . Locally The Poppy Shoppe , GlowUp Beauty Supply Store  and Celebrate Everything have stock occasionally. If it's candles specifically that you're after, give Native Caribbean a try. Yuh know we love local brands 'round here. #rep246 I dunno if I'll still be posting about empty Bath and Body Works products . I'm trynna figure a lot of things out tbh.. Anyhow, please stay safe and sane.
