As you know  beauty and fashion go hand-in-hand and she  presented her collection, Tobago Love, inspired by the tranquil vibes of the sister isle of Tobago.  That opening dress was instant love!!

Trinis went mad!! She definitely did us proud!

Shoutout to the other finalists, especially Kimberly, whose collection I also really liked.  Sorta grown-up urban.  Loved the use of bold, bright colours!!

Which collection was your favourite?

An island girl living in the Big Apple. She hails from the twin island Republic of Trinidad & Tobago but currently reside in the beauty/fashion capital of the world, New York City (Harlem to be exact!). She is passionate - well, obsessed - about beauty and in addition to blogging, she is also a corporate beauty professional and a budding web designer/developer. She loves combining her in-depth, practical knowledge with her chemist/scientific training to make your cosmetic choices fun and easy. She likes to take the guesswork out of beauty, separate the hype from what really works, to help you bring out the most beautiful you! She loves colour, and makeup, and she has been natural for years! She also loves great food, culture, sports and laid back vibes!
