Jamaican Glam

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to tell you about my latest adventure! I’ve been back from Jamaica for about a week now, things are just starting to slow down a little so I wanted to fill you in on my trip.

As one of a lucky group of guests of the Jamaica Board of Tourism and Global Renaissance Entertainment, I had the chance to spend four incredible days at the beautiful Iberostar Grand Hotel Rose Hall in Montego Bay, participate in several fun island activities, and was treated to an exclusive “Destination Experience” finale party at the legendary Goldeneye Resort in Oracabessa.

The whole weekend was built around a press conference at the famous Rose Hall Estate where Global Renaissance announced that they will be filming a trilogy of films based on the old sugar cane plantation which is legendary and rumored to be haunted. Media from all over the US and abroad were there and had the chance to interview Final Destination‘s creator Jeffrey Reddick; the producers of the franchise, Arthur Wylie & Dale Godboldo; film investors and some of Jamaica’s elite. Principal shooting for the first of the films will begin in the spring of 2015 and will surely benefit the Jamaican economy.

Just so you know, this wasn’t only a pleasure trip! I was also there to do some location scouting for a new travel show that I’m developing with Global Renaissance. Unfortunately I can’t say too much about it at the moment, but I will say that I’m super excited about it and will definitely fill you in as soon as I can….to be continued!

Never Sink Again in Solemates High Heeler


Solemates High Heeler is one of those products that after using it, you say to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of inventing this.”  These little covers are genius!!!  I attended an outdoor wedding and Solemates High Heelers were absolutely perfect for walking in the grass, standing for hours in the grass, and even walking on a cobblestone pathway with my high heels.  They prevented my heels from sinking into the lawn all day long!  They also prevented my heels from getting ruined from falling in between the cracks of the wooden deck, we later gathered on!  Solemates gave me balance and stability to even my highest of heels especially on all the uneven surfaces that I conquered like grass, brick patios, wooden decks and cobblestone pathways.  Solemates fit nice and snug on to my heels with no slipping at all and stayed secure in place the entire time I wore them!  When placing Solemates High Heelers on to your heels, you create a thicker heel to stand on, so my high heels were actually more comfortable and secure to wear.  I actually felt safer dancing with them on!  The flexible material grips securely without damaging the heel of the shoe!  Easy to put on and easy to take off to reuse over and over again!!!  You don’t even realize they are on!  They are barely noticeable when worn!  The only noticeable thing was everyone else was sinking and having a hard time in the grass and I was not!  People started to come up to me and question why I was not sinking into the grass.  Solemates High Heeler – I told them!

The key to this product is getting the right size for your shoe heel.  Make sure you go on the website before purchasing and they will have specific measurements for their sizes.  I measured the base of my heel and it was 3/8ths of an inch which is “Classic” and that is what I ordered and they fit my heels perfectly.  So measure your shoe heels before ordering!!  You can order Solemates High Heeler on or just to name a few stores that carry Solemates are Nordstrom, DSW, Bed Bath & Beyond, and many more.  Check out their website for more stores.  Available in three sizes:  Narrow, Classic, and Wide.  Available in 4 colors:  Clear, Gold, Silver, and Black.  Now my daughter and her friends want a pair of Solemates for their prom pictures in our backyard on the grass!  What a Brilliant Idea!!!

Bling it Up With BLING STRING


Sometimes I feel like my hair is too blah, because I don’t style it often. I don’t style it that much because for me it takes too long. But, now that I have tried Bling String, I can style my hair as often as I want because it is so easy to do! There are two ways you can apply Bling String, by clipping them in or tying them to your hair itself. I usually clip them in, because it is so much easier. The package comes with 10 clips, so you don’t even have to buy your own. 



To apply, just cut a strand of the Bling String to your desired length. Loop it through the top of the clip, and take the two ends of the string and tie them into a double knot around the clip. Clip it to your hair, and that’s it! There are two spools of string, and 400 applications! You can still style and wash your hair as you want, but just make sure to keep any curling iron or flat iron on medium heat. Mine lasted for about 2 weeks, and I just took the clip out when I didn’t want to wear it, so it worked out well. Its also a great idea for cheer, dance, or any type of sports. These are perfect for girls of any age, and would be a great idea to use for proms, weddings, or parties!

Mia Beauty Bling String retail for  $10 and are Available at

Keep Your Golden Glow With Austrailian Gold


The question is Should I wear Panty Hose or Not? According to my daughters, they say “NOT”. They also told me my legs look white and if I’m not going to wear panty hose then they need a little color.  What better way to achieve an instant tan than with Australian Gold Instant Bronze Self Tanning Lotion. I’m familiar with Australian Gold’s sun Care products, the brand is one of my favorites and Australian Gold Instant Bronzing Self Tanning Lotion (yes, I already had one on my shelf) worked like a charm.

I applied the self tanning lotion to my legs being careful to completely cover the areas I wanted color. You should see the color within 2 to 4 hours so make you allow yourself enough time for the golden glow to show! Definitely apply ahead of time, you will be happy you did. The results were amazing, my legs were lightly bronzed. Bronze enough that I got a thumbs up from the girls and was able to ditch  the Panty hose.

I loved the fragrance, almost like a buttery smell and the formula dried quickly. Australian Gold Instant Bronze Self Tanning Lotion contains Chamomile and Vitamin E for soft and smooth skin. You can use Australian Gold Instant Bronze Self Tanning Lotion to maintain the color you want anytime you want, anywhere you want, you don’t have to limit yourself to your legs. Once you achieve the color you want, simply apply a light coat 2 to 3 times a week.  It’s safe, it’s fun, it’s Australian Gold.
