              We’re always on the hunt for some new products, because we as women always wonder if we can find that one product that might just do a better job than the previous product that we were using, there’s always that hope….. sadly most of the time we just find ourselves going back to what we were using.

The best places to shop at in Curaçao


If you live in the Caribbean than you might relate to our struggle. Sometimes you want to dress or style yourself one way or the other, but that simply isn’t possible because our local shops don’t sell what it is we think is fashionable and on trend.

I’ve been using this product for a while now, and before I actually got my hands on this baby I did a few researches here and there… Why?

This opportunity was more than perfect because we are currently on our healthy relaxed hair journey’s and its always nice to get information from international professionals on how to care for your hair.
  The host’s for this event where the marvelous Mr. Ron Williams who is an internationally known celebrity stylist along with Ms. Vivana Garrido at the Yellowhouse /Zylo Curacao . He explained the line and their main focus and we also got  opportunity to get our hair scoped.

For The hair scope they used little cameras that magnify your hair so close that you can see the condition of your hair really clear on screen. Based on what they see which is parted into scalp condition,dryness,split ends  and the hairs overall condition they will recommend the best Phyto products and treatments for your hair type.
 We where truly amazing by the Phyto  hair line, never in our mind we would have thought that there was a hair product line out there that has every hair type in mind.
What we love the most is the fact that its made of 95% botanical ingredients, this makes it perfect for the hair lovers who still want to keep their hair flawless but without using harsh chemicals.
With Phyto products your hair is treated naturally. Phyto hair care also  has a  Phyto specific line which concentrates on  naturally curly hair so the natural hair sisters will be pleased as well.

The Hotseat with Houseoffstyle | Joamie Tweed from myprsnlxperience


Hi dolls,

welcome back to another episode of The Hotseat if you haven’t checked out our last hot seat post go ahead and check it out here.  The Hotseat series is going to be a series dedicated to interviewing people and business that inspire us on the daily. Today we have a great article where you will get to know Miss Joamie Tweed from myprsnlxperience.

So without further a do lets move on to the hot seat shall we.

yhst-81896639215747_2272_359028366

Joamie Tweed also called jo is a 26 year old Fashion Blogger. Her blog MyPrsnlxperience (My personal Experience) was founded on the 12th of June 2012. she posted her first article after finishing her exams at school.

it felt so liberating when she finally got the courage to do it. It is the place where she posts her day to day casual outfits.  she also does look books on special themes.  her photos are always accompanied with an anecdote, or the source of her inspiration for the outfit. The goal of her blog is to show her readers that with a little creativity, everyone can own an exclusive and unique sense of style, which compliments their personality.

Look2

she has been blogging for a year and 5 months now.and is in love with fashion, arts and music. At first she can be very quiet and conservative.  But when she catches the climate she will start showing her funny, vivacious and bubbly side.  she describes herself as spontaneous and adventurous.  and a lover of good conversation and out of the blue activities always searching and exploring for new things. she  loves to keep it fit by either running or going to the gym and her travel bucket list is getting longer and longer.

her personal style is to be considered a little quirky and out of the box, especially when dressing casually. If having to attend to any formal event she’ll probably dress very femininely and glamorous, but with a funky twist. It’s a way of stamping her personality.

Blogging is her way of expressing her personal style and taste in fashion.  she also express her interests in art, music and lifestyle. For Jo it means showing her creativity to the world.  she experiences it as her voice in the fashion world and she hope to reach out to people that have the same thoughts as hers or to inspire people who need a little help in finding their own style.

Throughout the years Jo read so much about fashion, but needed a way of letting it all out. she remembers when she was in college people would approach her asking her where does she shop or how does she come up with the ideas for dressing up. All this pushed her to the final step of starting up her blog. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Jo’s  been reading glossies for as long as she can remember, and ever since she has been inspired to create a number of outfits based on all of the fashion tips she have acquired, from years and years of reading. she remembers her first glossy was the “Seventeen” magazine.

she then  switched to In Style magazine as she began to get older and evolve into a woman. Up and till today she still gets inspiration from all of the fashion tips they offer. This glossy has had a great influence on the way Jo dresses today. The reason is because it offers insight on how to create your own style. They give tips on how to embrace your own figure, and to dress  in a way that enhances your personality as a whole. It has truly helped her understand why certain pieces will fit her style better than others.

Jo remembers by the time she was nine she used to watch this sitcom named Clarissa she immediately fell in love with her style. Clarissa would wear the weirdest ensembles ever but still she was terribly attracted to the way they styled her. but being from a small island where fashion statements are not yet as development and open minded as other countries she could only dream of wearing those clothes,

( for the Curacao peeps) If you do remember that song “esei a keda hippy..hippy hippy hippy” she didn’t want to be portrayed like that in any way. But as she grew up she felt a need to be free within her style. and so she did when she moved to Europe.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So she started to  started to follow some interesting street-style bloggers from which she got a number of creative ideas for her looks.

Among her favorites are Caroline Blomst (carolinesmode.com), her all time favorite Andrea Torres

( stylescrapbook.com), vogue and grazia editor Tamu McPherson (alltheprettybirds.blogspot.com), Tommy Ton

( Style.com), Gaby (gabyfresh.com), and Scot Schuman (thesartorialist.com)

we asked Jo to Name four of her best blogging experiences and these where:

1)    Meeting and interacting with Fred van Leer. A well-known Dutch TV host and stylist. I met him at this year’s vogue fashion’s night out.

2)    Getting my first award as a fashion blogger: The Liebster award. For me it was an extra push to continue in doing what I love.

3)    My first professional photo-shoot collaboration, I truly want to thank Jo-dor Photography for his ideas, professionalism and input in blog. The work chemistry was amazing. I still fall in love with the Photo’s whenever I see them.

4)    All of the comments, requests, interactions and encouragement I get from my readers. You guys truly make my day, and inspire me to continue to deliver even more of my ideas and thoughts. It is such a great feeling to know that your work can inspire others to create their own style.

Look1

Jo seeks  to share her voice, inspire others to be themselves and to not be afraid of exploring their style horizons. five years from now she sees herself still running her blog and interacting even more with readers.

she also  sees herself collaborating with more bloggers and fashion lovers to inspire her readers even more.

lastly she gave us one last tip for every aspiring blogger out there

Be yourself, and find that single core talent that will differentiate you from others. And please whatever it is that you want to achieve, go for it: don’t ever give up and most importantly of all: don’t worry what anybody says/thinks about your dreams.
