I hope that you having an amazing time with family and friends!  I have been thoroughly enjoying all the baking and cooking going on!  My Mum even made toolum (which is a traditional Trinbagonian candy made of molasses, flaked coconut and sugar).  Yum!!

Toolum!

 

I made oatmeal cookies for the first time in ages! And the drink of the season has been sorrel (which is called hibiscus, bissap or karkadey in other countries).  We drink ours like a juice as opposed to a tea.

Anyway, what beauty goodies did you get from Santa this year??

Have a great holiday!!

Feliz Navidad a tod@s, Buon Natale a tutti, Feliz Natal a tod@s, Joyeux Noël a tous!

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!
