If you've been reading me for awhile, you know I love to brag about being born beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados. Mount Gay, Rhianna and me - the Island's best exports. ;-) (JUST KIDDING) So imagine my excitement when I found the Caribbean Shopping Channel, a televised and online curated shopping network. They have some amazing stuff which they ship to the US (woohoo!), Canada and the Caribbean.
Now that it’s fall I love to go out and scour fall trends, and if you’re anything like me I can go nuts buying a whole new wardrobe, so I find tactics on how to restrain myself.
My best trick is finding that season’s color palette and sticking to items that revolve around that palette – that way I know the various pieces I purchase will go together well, and also compliment the season. Not to mention that living in San Diego, I still do need to "fake" a good sun kissed glow all year round.
Check out my favorite fashion finds from the Caribbean Shopping Channel all based on a fall palette:
While that's not the shade of blue I 'normally' go for in home decor, I'm kinda obsessed with it for clothes at the moment. In fact, blue, gray and army greens are ruling my closet at the moment.
And just as an FYI, the holidays are coming and you know what that means... RUM PUNCH :)
3oz. MOUNT GAY Dark Rum (the website lists another rum. IMO there is NO OTHER RUM other than Mount Gay!)
1oz. fresh lime juice
2 oz. Tortuga plain syrup or simple syrup
Dash of bitters
Combine all ingredients except nutmeg in a shaker with cracked ice. Shake well & serve immediately. Sprinkle fresh grated nutmeg over the top of each glass & garnish with fresh pineapple, mango or lime wedge.
