Why I started wearing less make up

A while ago I shared my daily make-up routine that included a full face – concealer, foundation, two types of eyeliner, mascara, and so on. You can see that here. I even got to the point of doing my eyebrows every single day.

Satya by Charu Lochan Dass

The Charu Lochan Dass brand launched back in 2013 with a bang, and the designer has continued to wow us, or at least me. The designer was born in India but moved to Trinidad as a young child, and her designs reflect her background. Since the Caribbean is a melting pot of cultures, it is interesting to see how they are expressed through fashion and art and I definitely think that CLD’s expression is aesthetically pleasing.

Satya, CLD’s latest collection, was showed in UWI’s Instyle show and if you missed it, like I did since I am thousands of miles away, here it is for you.

Book Review: The Wangs vs. the World by Jade Chang

After reading Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan, any book that has an Asian leaning to it peaks my interest. I think reading fiction about their culture, even though it may be so far off, takes me to another place and just keeps me so engrossed.

from elle.com

The Wangs vs. the World is about a man that moved to the U.S. with pee and built a fortune out of it. He made the pee he moved with into a lucrative industry that allowed him and his family to live thriving and opulent lives until, one day, they just didn’t anymore. The book follows their journey across the country once he looses his wealth, has to pull his kids out of private schools and college, and head east to his eldest daughter whose trust fund he expected to live off of but was also lost.

We get to experience a previous tragedy the family encountered, understand the characters, and eventually see the father return to his homeland in the hopes of reclaiming land that belonged to his family centuries ago.

Would I recommend this read? Probably not as much as I would recommend Crazy Rich Asians, but to be honest, nothing I have read since then has been as good. But if you are looking for a good read, then yes.

 

Outfit Post: Stripe Dress + Tassel Sandals

A few weekends ago I went down to Naples to see the Origami in the Gardens sculpture exhibit. It was eye opening, you can read my travel post about that here. Today, I’m sharing with you the outfit I wore that day. The Naples Botanic Garden had a gorgeous focal backdrop that worked perfectly for shooting this number so of course I just had to share it with you. The weather was at that point where the temperature was just perfect even in direct sunlight that you just HAD to wear a sundress and bask in it.
