Be Enterprising

I hope everyone had a great weekend. The highlight of my weekend was spending some time with a dear friend her name is Letitia. I would like to share her soaps with you guys. I so admire her talent for making soap. She is making a little business of it. I am a big advocate for entrepreneurship. J It was fascinating to hear all the detailed and time that goes into creating soap. She tells me it can take up to four to six weeks for the process. I think what makes her soaps unique they are made in small batches the old fashion way. She told me she makes a small batch once per month so I was very lucky to have gotten some. 

I used it right away; my batch was lavender flavored with a minty type smell. It latter up really nicely. I have very dry skin so I was happy that it did not dry out my skin like most off the shelf soaps. The smell was not that over powering.

She did not asked me to feature her on my blog, I really like her soaps so I decided to blog about it. I will now have them in my home from now on. Her being one of my besties J  one might say I could be a little bias, that could be true but they are really great soaps. I would encourage everyone to go to her website and get some, but be aware that she really does make them in small batches and she is a little particular. She like to take her time and tells me she have salons and various shops on back orders. It took me over three months to get my batch because she runs out so quickly. 
I am so proud of her she is such an enterprising person; She is always on the go and is always following her dreams. I wish her all the best and success for the future. Check out her website :
Question: Do you have a passion for something and have not made a go of it ?

Habibe Sunglasses Review

I hope everyone is having a great Friday. I am back from vacation and like most vacations it's slow to get back into the swing of things. For the first two days I was still waking up in the morning thinking I am in Jamaica - making plans of hitting the beach, looking forward to drinking some cold coconut water, eating some mangoes, some sweet sap and some ackee and breadfruits.  I feel the cold, 55 degree weather, and cold draft /in my house. I am back to reality: vacation is over.

I wish I had these sunglasses on my vacation. They are so chic. I was asked by Habibe (Ha-Bee-Bee) to check them out. So here goes: I truly think they are very cool looking glasses. They are very unique with their bamboo wood for the arms. They are lightweight, have high quality construction,and there’s lots of detailed craftsmanship. The overall design is delicate but sturdy. These Habibe's use a unique color combination and it features creative use of materials.

I’ve been wearing them for the past couple of days now. I asked a few of my friends what they thought about them. I only got positive responses. Everyone commented on the bamboo sides and asked “What designer brand are they”?  The name is not familiar to most, but I think they are right up there with all the top brands. I definitely will be reaching for them from now on.

Go check Habibe out they have classic as well as completely original styles and most of the glasses are unisex. You can get 20% off by using the coupon code: Sweet20.  Be sure to use that at check out to get your 20% off.

In the photos, I am wearing the very stylish  brown unisex bamboo lense. Check out their website at  What do you guys think about this eyewear?
