Marley Twists by @Virgochyktessie

During the height of my Installation season (a.k.a “Pretty Season“) I noticed I was having difficulty managing my hair. Usually when it gets this way, I give it a break and opt for protective styling. My first choice is usually a sew-in but this time I decided to research some other options for protective hairstyles. One “new” discovery was Marley Twists.
I didn’t know anyone who tried this style and my regular hairdresser has no clue what they are, so I ruled it out and settled for “Patra” braids.
Last week though my friend Wade (who knows my obsession with Hair & Beauty) reintroduced me to the Marley Twist concept when he introduced me to hairstylist Teresa Simpson(@VirgoChykTessie). My interest was sparked and I pondered getting them!
Marley Twists/ Havana Twists can be done to any type of hair but mainly people who are making the transition or who have made the transition to being natural. According to Teresa, the main benefit of doing Marley Twists/Havana Twists is that it (Marley hair) doesn’t pull on your natural hair. Therefore you don’t experience breakage.
Marley hair also has as similar texture to natural hair and looks realistic when installed. Marley Twists/Havana Twists are perfect for busy women and college students. Teresa currently works from home and she also does house calls.
Here are some pictures of a very satisfied customer.
If you are looking for a new look to rock consider Marley Twists/Havana Twists. To make an appointment with Teresa, contact her via email

What's In My Bag

One of my favourite Youtube tags is the "What's In My Bag" tag, so I decided to give it a go...recently my Rotaract Club did a joint project at the Alpha Boy's Home. It was awesome! We spent time and lymed with the boys.

Usually when I go out on a Saturday I walk with a few essentials, so I finally decided to do the "What's In My Bag" tag...

I love the ease of a messenger bag. This one was a birthday gift from my Mom.

I walk with ALOT of stuff!

Note Book ($95)- recently I have been forgetting things alot so I decided to purchase a notepad to help me remember important tasks. When I saw this Chevron patterned notepad, I know I had to get it!
Kleenex tissues  (Megamart) because sometimes you just need a tissue
Earrings (Old)
Rotaract Club of Kingston Agenda from the meeting I attended after the project
The Layperson's version of the 1962 Constitution of Jamaica (Simply because knowledge is power)

Cellphones are a must- Left - Sony Xperia Play (My current phone) & Right -Blackberry (Loaned to me from a dear friend when my Blackberry 9700 stopped working)
Yes!  I lived like it was 1989 (without a cellphone) for almost a month!

Purse - Fiorelli- a gift from a customer

Bath & Body Works Travel Bag (Gift from my Boss' wife)
Japanese Cherry Blossom Lotion (Gift from my Boss' wife)
Liplicious Gloss in Bing Cherry (Gift from my Boss' wife)

What do you usually carry in your bag on a Saturday?

OOTN: Eastern Night......London Lights

On Wednesday August 21, 2013, I visited the Rotaract Club of St. Thomas' Installation Ceremony. This was my final Installation for the season and I really enjoyed the experience. I wasn't sure what to wear and I did put an outfit together the night before but changed my mind the morning of the Installation.

Dress: Maya Deluxe (Gift from Mom)/Bag: Bought it at Big Buy Portmore for JMD$1500/Shoes: Chinese Laundry 

I had a fabulous night with new and old friends and I look forward to another trip to St. Thomas.

Thanks for Stopping By
