Food: Street Shak Caribbean Kitchen Restaurant

As the presence of black owned restaurants continues to grow throughout Toronto, the selections has particularly grown in the downtown core. This is perfect for me as downtown Toronto is my hood, so always looking for great new food places to check out.

Open for a bit over a year, Street Shak Caribbean Kitchen located at 646 Queen St. W. in the bustling downtown Queen West area and offers a modern environment that celebrates rich Caribbean heritage and cuisine. I had been seeing and hearing a lot about Street Shak on social media, so I was definitely hoping to try it out at some point. I was finally able to make time to visit the restaurant and with my friend Nikki and I must say it was a great experience...

Beauty: Lala Skin Essentials Organic Skin Care Product Review

Skincare has not always been a major focus of mine or an important part of my daily regiment, however in the past year I have become more interested in paying better attention to my skin and building a good skincare routine.

I recently had the opportunity to connect with local Toronto based organic skincare brand Lala Skin Essential and try out two of their shea body butters. As Ihave been working on improving my skin, I have tried to look more towards natural organic products. Therefore, with Lala Skin Essentials only uses organic ingredients, this definitely fell in line with what have been looking for so was excited to try it out...

#MusicMonday: 'My Baby' by Magnom Ft. Joey B


Happy Monday Everyone!

Did the weekend feel as short as it did for me? Must be because I was running around all weekend attending events and planning events. With all the energy I used up this weekend, to start off my week I'm feelin' for a chilled out song to get me into a more relaxed mood.

'My Baby' by Ghanaian musician Magnom ft. Joey B is currently hittin' the right spot, lol! For some reason I keep on listening to this song. It's just so unique, funny and catchy all at the same time.
