One of my favorite things to do is finding must-haves on Ebay.. I've tried all those asian sites and what not but for me, Ebay's where it's at..
If you've been following me for a while you'd know that I get the most random things from there.. From designer dupes to legit luxury goods.. I just love it..
I saw these shorts floating around on Instagram but when I finally found a good shop that was selling them, I was not willing to pay the price.. So, there I went.. Hopped on Ebay, key words ready, on the look out for my shorts..
It took no time.. I found the shorts for a fraction of the price I had seen them for.. I clicked 'Add to cart' so fast.. And the waiting game began.. It didn't take too long for them to arrive and when I tried them on.. OMG, I should have gotten all the colors.. I only got the red and pink (wore it on IG)..
They fit so perfect.. They are stretchy, super high waisted like I love my pants to be and the material is flowy and airy.. Such a good buy.. Needles to say, I'll be wearing them on repeat!

You know how sometimes you have outfits in your mind but for some reason you never wear them because you might be doing too much?.. This year we're gonna be doing it all.. There's no such thing as too much!

I've had these heels for years, barely ever wore them because there's never really an occasion.. Guess what, 'going shopping' has officially become an occasion.. I declare it, it's official, it's done!

They're actually pretty comfortable too.. So, that outfit you've been double thinking about, girl, wear it! K.. bye.. haha

Beauty | Flawless Skin with Neem!*

For half of my puberty my mom harassed me to drink this herb because it cleanses your body and helps with menstruation issues.. What she never mentioned was clear skin! I would have been chugging!

I spent my teens with pretty pink little breakouts all over my face with the occasional clear skin which lasted a second and a half.. And like many others, an irregular menstrual cycle..

Fast forward 10 years later.. Magic potion rediscovered! The one thing that works for my skin.. I introduce to you, the fabulousness that is the herb called Neem..

In the past, I used to use the Margo Neem soap but that dried my skin out instantly.. It works nonetheless, but it was a continues worry whether or not I was drinking enough water, moisturized enough and whether or not I had dry flakes and patches on my face..

So, since the end of last year, I have been using Neem again just like I used to do in my teens but with a twist.. You're supposed to boil the leaves in some water and drink it like tea but chile, it tastes disgusting.. It's very bitter..

What I do instead is, I take a lot of leaves to boil, I make it very concentrated and instead of drinking a cup, I shot it.. So, I instead of displeasing myself with the ugliness that is the taste.. One shot, one swallow and chug some water behind it and all is well in the world..

Of course I don't do all that work for just one shot.. I take the rest of the herb juice after it's cooled down, bottle it and keep it in the fridge.. I take one shot every day and I use it as a toner.. After washing my face, I take a cotton pad, wet it with the magic potion and bless my face and neck with it.. Let it dry and done!

I have noticed a huge difference in my skin, it's like I'm glowing from within.. My skin doesn't feel dry like when I was using the soap but drinking a lot of water is key to keep your skin naturally hydrated and supple.. It helps so much with reducing pimples, dark spots and pigmentation issues.

Also, make-up applies better and you'll need less.. I only apply concealer under my eyes to hide my designer bags, other than that, my face Gucci!

If you're on the island, there are Neem trees all over, you just need to be able to recognize them.. Are there any other natural magic potions I'm unaware of? If so, feel free to share!

I can always count on myself to do the weirdest things.. I started featuring new cool spots on the island, you can see them by the 'HotSpot' title.. I go, I check them out, take some pics, write a review and go about my business..

I can not understand how I have been visiting the bestest, the coolest, my most favorite, the most me hotspot practically since it opened and have never featured them.. Granted, if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen either their salads or beygls pass by every other 'lunch' post.. But, here goes.. To the long overdue HotSpot blogpost!

Beyglz. The one place I've eaten practically everything on the menu but, I keep going back because they're THAT good!.. Beyglz offers a variety of meals for breakfast and lunch.. From bagels, to salads, to pancakes.. Whatever you're craving, they have it.. And mind you, they are healthy AF.. Everything is fresh, locally sourced and organic.. 

One aspect I appreciate them for is the fact that they support local artists and charities.. Whenever you go, there are either paintings on the wall or other art pieces by local artists.. At the moment, Goatchi's are on display and available for purchase.. Every month, there's a 'Benefit Beygl'.. The proceeds of that particular beygl go to a good cause to support our community..

My absolute favorite beygl, which I also recommend to everyone, is the 'Evita'; which consists of sautéed tenderloin strips, fried egg and chimichurri to say the least and my favorite salad is the 'Voltaire'; which includes grilled chicken, goat cheese and dried cranberries.. The 'Death by Omelette' beygl is also worth a mention because hello, bomb!

And if you don't know what to drink, smoothie of life.. 'Hale Berry'.. best of the best!

Aside from a comfortable and chill vibe, Beyglz offers bomb food while contributing to exposing our local artists and giving a helping hand to charities and those in our community who need it most.. So, for all I'm concerned, HotSpot of the year 2017 definitely goes to Beyglz! 

And if you'd like to go but don't have anyone to go with, hit me up.. I'll never say no to Beyglz!

Happy 2018!*

Untitled

Here we are again.. In the blink of an eye, we made it to another beginning.. In retrospect, 2017 flew by.. There were moments that seemed to last forever and moments I wished never passed but everything comes and goes..

2017, was an indescribable year.. I wouldn't say it was the best but it absolutely was not the worst.. On a personal, emotional and mental level there is still a couple of things I need to address and give a place but they are mostly leftovers from 2016..

2017 has taught me to hold on to my heart's desires and be grateful for the small, big and everything in between.. Oh, and also, to be patient and to not be so hard on myself..

Remember the vision board I spoke about last year, guess what, I managed to accomplish the most important things on the board and I am incredibly happy about it.. This year, a new vision board will be up.. 

My goals are not that much different but I have added a new goal which is to focus on me more.. Selfcare and selflove are so, so important and sometimes you get lost in being there for others while you yourself need it the most.. I have decided to do away with anything/anyone that drains my energy, is irrelevant to my goals or messes with my focus.. It's not easy but in order to reach new heights, you need to let go of things that weigh you down..

So.. 2018 here we are.. I hope to be better and do better so I can look back on another year where I have accomplished the most important things on the list..

How's your 2018 looking?
