We are already two days into 2018! It feels like just a few days ago I wrote my first post for 2017. However, I am thankful to have made it to see another year. God has certainly been keeping us all.
I have been waiting quite a while to do this post. It is all about the products I have either interacted with and in some cases found to be unique with great packaging and definitely worthy to share. All opinions are my own and products are not in any sort of order by importance, but listed as they came to mind. See my list of favourite Grenadian-made products for 2017:
1.Whipped Cocoa Butter by Grenada Soul Adventurer
This product is everything your skin needs. It just melts in your fingers and soaks right into your skin – very moisturizing and the ingredients are all natural. This should be found in every household.

You don’t often see locally/Caribbean made products for men and these bows go beyond just a bow. They are made from exotic wood found on the island and burlap bag. These bows can definitely give any brother a new swag.

3. Leatherette African Print Purse by Lisa Baptiste
I was so stoked when I came across these beautiful leatherette purses with these African print piping. These are definitely one of a kind and a must have. I found these on a hunt for local products one day and couldn’t resist sharing them.
4. Scented Oil by Renee Scentsationz
This product is a staple and believe me when I say, it works. It’s very fragrant and will add a soothing aroma to any room.
5. Face Moisturizer by Rose Marie Cosmetics
A little goes a long way with this moisturizer. It keeps your face hydrated and even with my acne prone skin, it does not leave my face oily. Find these products at Real Value Supermarket.
6. White Clutch Purse by Sapphires
I first learned about Sapphires at an annual natural hair event, The Mane Game, and got this white clutch purse. I totally love it! The size is perfect to hold what you need when you go out and just right to accessorize a simple outfit.
7. Donkey Eye Necklace by Tambran by Tamara.
Almost every time I wear my Tambran by Tamara Donkey Eye necklace, I get asked where I got it from, even when I travel. I call it my conversation starter piece. I wear it with almost anything and use it to gift friends for birthdays.
8. Mosquito Repellent by Arawak Islands.
This comes in handy when I need to fight off those pesky mosquitoes and since it is all natural, the environment smiles every time I use it.

9. Tropical Clutch by Mell Nelson.
Ok, so let’s just take a moment to behold the beauty of this clutch purse. Hand painted and hand made for a classy, bold and tropical look. This is on my ‘Things to get for 2018 list’.

10. The Tegana Memoir by Ronald Antoine.
One thing I want to do more of is support local authors. Grenada has some great writers and Ronald Antoine is certainly one of them. He launched three of his novels earlier this year and I took this one. Really great read.
11. Shift dress by Always Leid.
In case you don’t know by now, besides being a lover of things Grenadian/Caribbean, I love colour, bold prints and tropical looking dresses, so this one definitely had to make my list.

12. Calabash Lamp Shade
I added this to the list because I love almost anything made from Calabash and these little lamp shades work great as a shade for tea candles. Use them as center pieces or just to decorate any table. You can get them from either Ms. Keisha or Ms. La Crette in the market.
