The question I get asked most is, “how do you find the time to read so much?” The short answer is, I make time for what is important. The long answer is, I make sure to set aside uninterrupted time for reading on a daily basis. I am always the first to say that my lifestyle is one that allows me to read a lot. I recognise that there are a lot of persons who lead very busy lives and can only do 30 minutes of reading a day or a week. This post is for you; here is how you can maximise your reading time.
Yes, you read it right! This week we are talking about wigs but not just any regular wig as you may see commonly but bright neon wigs. Women have been wearing wigs for centuries yet many of us are still nervous about trying the look. Wigs are a fantastic option for the carnival season simply because there’s no need to worry about feeling limited with your look. With wigs, there’s no commitment to a particular hairstyle. As women we tend to do so much with our hair, sometimes too much that cause these delicate follicles to be pulled and tugged to their death. With that, the end result is often stressed hair lines, breakage, scalp irritations and more. The leaves many women looking for alternatives can change up their hairstyle for special events while maintaining their hair’s strength. When carnival time comes around, we usually want our hair to look slayed but still not have worry too much about the long wait at the salon. This is where the full lace wig can save the day! It’s a great way to wear your natural hair but get the versatility of hairstyles. Not to mention, you can push the limits and have your wig dyed in bright electrifying colours for the season to match the bold colours often see in costumes for the road and even at some of the hottest fetes. The trend has caught on particularly because women can still achieve their desired bright colours, without having to permanently change there own hair colour. Hairstylist and wig guru Kimberly Edwards- Daniel of the Kim Eds salon demonstrated an ombre neon green wig installation for us showing how women can have their look fully transformed for the greatest show that is Trinbago carnival.
When you hear hand-dyed silk, many folks automatically think of the tie-dye process that has been seen for many years. However, Lisa Sarjeant-Gonzales owner of Lisa Faye, tells us that the process is more technical and time consuming than we think. Lisa is known for her one of a kind line of Caribbean inspired coloured resort-wear which is made in silk fabric that is hand dyed by herself.

"Life is a ladder. We (parents) can only climb up to a certain point and then it's for you the children to climb up a little higher, so whatever point we stop, the children have to go higher. If this does not happen, then you would not have done your duty as a parent."—Keith Sobion, (Former T&T attorney general)

Everyone has their own personal style, in a sense, it’s your signature. It’ll introduce you before you even introduce yourself. But, how do you find? Where do you start?

It’s just a mess of things you thought were cute and decided to buy, not thinking if they’ll even make sense later on. But have no fear, we’re here to help you figure out, or least set you on the path to discovering what your personal style really is.
The goddess braids that we commonly see today trace all the way back to times in African history when many women wore their hair in cornrows. This widely popular protective style, especially when done long with an addition of colour is another highly requested look for the carnival season that brings a whole new dimension to the look of many women for fetes and the road. This braided style is a piece of artwork in itself which we were able to witness as hairstylist Kimberly Edwards-Daniel of the Kim Eds salon demonstrated the technique to us. Kim tells us that these types of braided styles are not just perfect for carnival but also make a great option for women who want to give their hair a break and protect it from any external damage.
