Bequia for Easter! Fun, Sun and Photo-shoots!

As promised :)

It was a fun trip. We traveled to Bequia for the purpose of doing the photo-shoot and a few articles for the upcoming issue of Vincy E-Zine (which is already available here). Bequia is the largest Grenadine Island and is also where my father's family is from. We had a blast and it felt like we were in an entirely different part of the world. If you've never been to the Easter Regatta, you should definitely contemplate it.

We kind of knew this was coming, though -- rumors began to swirl back in Januarythat the singer was working on a campaign for the Swedish retailer when one of her dancers at the shoot tweeted an accidental confirmation. But now the first shot is finally here!

Mont Bleu- Nail Files, Tweezers and More

I've had a pretty decent relationship with Mont Bleu from the very first time that they contacted me to do a review of their products. They are mainly a glass nail file producer and decorator but also produce beautiful tweezers, compact mirrors and other accessories.

I'm one of those people that get my manis and pedis religiously but I do them on a monthly basis so the home-care aspect is always a big deal for me. Hence, I love these nail files from Mont Bleu and all the other little bits that they offer.
