Apple News Picked Up My Beauty Article On How Beauty Is Enhanced By Plant Based Food

img_9331Earlier this summer I written a beauty article about food for a new online magazine called SPIRALIZED.

I worked with the Editor In Chief, Gina Keatley numerous times doing hair and makeup for her videos and photoshoots. So when she asked me if I would be interested in writing about the topic of food, makeup and clothing I thought it would make for fun content.

Little did I know that later this summer the article would get picked up by Apple News. I’m not a journalist I’m just a woman who love to write on her blog about beauty, skincare, hair, and my crazy life. So when Gina reached out to me that my article was picked up by Apple News, you can only imagine how taken away I was about this great news.

I’m going to continue to bring you all quality and fun content on my blog as well as a contributor. Below you will find the original article on SPIRALIZED page 11-13. I hope you enjoy it!

Being that I’m a Beauty Editor for Caribbean Posh magazine, I get to try out so many different beauty and skincare products. Companies send me a lot of products to try and I definitely use them all. Some I like and some not so much.

New Orleans Peeps Enjoying Surf Day In Oahu Hawaii

img_8172Yeah buddy, the day has finally come, where the Gomez-Duplessis guys are getting surf lessons in Hawaii. We decided to go to our favorite area, Haleiwa on The Northshore.

Haleiwa is about a 45 min ride, the same amount of time to get to Honolulu from the house but the view to Haleiwa is so much better. Plus, I like the energy better in Haleiwa then in Waikiki. I call Haleiwa more bohemian, chill and laid back. Being in Waikiki is like going to Rodeo Drive flirting with 5th Ave and Times Square.

Honolulu is basically  like going downtown in your town where all the tourists have overcrowded. When we visited The Northshore last month we noticed they offered surf lessons on the beach. No appointment is needed you just show up and wait until one of the instructors is available. The crowds are also substantially lighter and friendlier than in Waikiki. The North Shore is the SURFING CAPITOL of the WORLD, learning to surf out here is about as authentic as it gets.

So today we selected to do surf lessons on Chun’s Reef Beaches with North Shore Surf Girls. The instructor offers 2 lessons, one on the beach and the other in the water. The total lesson is 2 hours and the instructors were very knowledgeable and gave really good tips and advice when your out there in the water.

They will provide surf jerseys, rashguards and surfboard.  Please make sure you bring cash, enough to pay for your services, to tip your instructor and additional cash if you decide that you want to purchase professional pictures of yourself when you’re out on the water.

 

So while the guys were doing their thing out in the water, I was having my photo shoot by myself.

A freelance photographer is out there, capture great pics of you and when you’re done with your lessons you can review the pics and then purchase the link with pics of yourself. His hustle is like theme parks, not mad at it, I like a good hustle.
