Jamaican Brand Review: Nature’s Virtue

Jamaican Brand Review: Nature’s Virtue

Greetings all! I have some new products to share with you, from the brand, Nature’s Virtue. Nature’s Virtue is a Jamaican brand that provides hair and skin care products, made in Jamaica with organic ingredients. They started producing the first product, the solid Hair Food, in 2014,…

One Coco: D'Havia Designs

I have a beach problem, to me it’s not really a problem, but here’s the real problem: for the beach you need swimsuits, I always want new ones. As a girl after my mom, I like getting new clothes, so I’d followed a lot of…

One Coco: Quaint By GSC

Today I have another addition to the Coco Basket, it is a white Royal Dawta Crossbody Bag from Quaint by GSC. I’m not going around this, I love this brand, you’re gonna keep seeing it on my site. Quaint by GSC is an Afrocentric brand; the goods include bags, clothes, swimsuits, and hats, with a touch of African print. Gabrielle Clarke keeps coming up with beautiful innovative designs, and they just take up a little space in my heart. When she had just released the crossbody bags, I knew I had to have one. For this Coco, I asked my mom for it as a birthday gift, and my wish was granted.

It wasn’t a surprise because I wanted to choose the design but when I got it on my birthday I was elated. I was getting ready to head out to my birthday dinner when mom came home and delivered it to me. I have moods, and when I picked my colour scheme I was feeling white, and what better to go with white than gold? I must admit, white is one of my favourite colours, especially for accent pieces. To me, it gives an air of fanciness; from time to time I’ll polish my fingernails and toenails white, it makes me feel “boujee”.

The bag was bigger than I thought it was gonna be, and for that I was happy; I’m a woman that carries her life in her handbag, so to have a big casual bag is great. The stitching and seams are very neat. I had one problem with the bag, the lining inside is green…I was very confused when I opened it, and when it’s closed you see a hint of the green at the sides. I assumed it was to be unique, for a pop of colour but personally I would have preferred it to be white, it would have a neater look to me. Plus, I don’t like green, that shade specifically. So, I’ll be rating this a 4.5/5, would buy again… in all the colours.

One Coco: Ngozi

Ngozi Sweet Blessings isn’t new to my blog but her products have grown dear to my heart. This purchase was a Christmas gift for my little sister, a scented candle was on her wish list, and I got her this one. I’m waving the buy…

One Coco: Bayspring

Today I have the third, and final, item I bought at A Jamaican Made Christmas; it is a Bayspring Coffee Scrub with peppermint. I hope y’all don’t get tired of me and the coffee scrubs… I doubt anyone could get tired of coffee scrubs though,…

One Coco: Sen Say

Today I’m telling you about Sen Say Soy Candles; this is the second addition to the basket from A Jamaican Made Christmas. I didn’t buy a candle though, I bought their Aroma Beads. You place them in your drawers (teehee) to keep your clothes smelling nice. The brand Sen Say promotes recycling and keeping the environment healthy; and as I said they previously, they make scented soy candles. The candles last longer, they burn cleaner- leaving no toxins or pollutants in the air- and they’re made of soybean, which is a renewable source.

I was waltzing through the crowd looking for things to buy, and I stumbled upon the Sen Say booth. I was intrigued by a vanilla and coffee scented candle but I had so many similar scents, I left it. I smelt the aroma beads though, and had to get it, it was cheap and smelt so good; I didn’t have anything like this scent in my arsenal. I had to ask the owner about the scent, it was one of her specialties, she said it was a scent she had designed for her soft rose soy candle. So, the newest addition to the (Jamaican Brand) Coco basket is Aroma Beads by Sen Say.

One Coco: Miss Dutchie

Hey! I know it’s been a while since I updated the basket but I went to an event called A Jamaican Made Christmas- this is an annual 2-day pop-up arcade with only Jamaican brands- and got a few things; I believe this is my third…

One Coco: Quaint by GSC

In all honesty I was hesitant to buy a bag from Quaint by GSC because I felt like I needed something more heavy duty. The more I saw the products of Gabrielle Clarke pop up on my Instagram feed, the more my worries faded. Her…

One Coco: Momo Penelli

Guys! Momo Penelli had a mini blow out sale, she had necklaces and two different sized earrings on sale. So you know yah girl had to run in on it. I love Monique’s goods but I’m on that tight budget so I will not be out there shopping every single day. I must admit I am a sucker for sales, so when I saw it I just supported. I bought a medium sized earring for myself, and a large one for my mom. Please people that know my mom, don’t go around announcing it, I’ll be giving it to her in about a week, on her birthday. Take a look at the pretty prints I selected though.
