In just two short weeks, Wedding Spectacular will go down inside the Wyndham Kingston Hotel and I am tickled pink! You’d think I was a bride-to-be but after my last experience at Kingston Bridal Week, I’m very excited to be asked back. I had loads of fun and I met so many different suppliers in the fashion/beauty/skin care/catering fields that I am ready to go back and see what’s new! It was there that I first met Toppin Designz and spoke with the designers. You have no idea how valuable it is to connect with and see the quality of a designer’s work until you have a need and you remember that thing from that place and go looking them up! It was there that I got these adorable tags for my homemade Christmas gifts!
I was also introduced to a spa that offers natural remedies for acne and hyperpigmentation. Kind of like a peel but with…natural stuff….they said. No chemicals. My interest is definitely piqued and if my own home remedies do not work out, I have them at the top of my list to visit.
So while I am not in the wedding market myself, I will definitely be going and invite you to come along, whether you’re engaged or just a beauty and fashion buff like me, because there’s a world of Jamaican made or sourced suppliers and small businesses who cater to our needs. High on my priority list for attending this year is finding a powder match for my face. I. Need. A. Proper. Facepowder!!! One that won’t make me look like Kartel in the camera flash at night. Tons of makeup experts will be there, I’m sure, and this time, instead of wandering aimlessly around sipping wine and eating wedding cake, I’m going with a plan!
Speaking of wine, there were a couple of suppliers of this fancy beverage there last year. Also high on my list, finding out what kind of wine I like! I am by no means a wine connoisseur and have no opinion at the wine table when asked what my preference is. I’d like to have a voice. I once found a sweet malbec I quite liked but of course, have no idea who it was by and the others I’ve tried since pale in comparison. What’s your favourite? What should I look out for?
