Caribbean Creators Meet Up At Lavelle

August 11, 2017

Had a random idea to get together with some bloggers, youtubers etc of Caribbean descent. I feel like it’s always good to connect with like minded individuals from time to time and do a check in. It’s difficult for people who are not in this world to understand what creators like me deal with. I was craving convos with people who can relate. So I emailed a few dope peeps who are doing the damn thing  in the digital world and said “Let’s meet up!”

Thankfully the folks at Lavelle were open to making this happen and hosted us. We had some hors d’oeuvres prepared by Chef Romain Avril and champagne!

Then for the gift bags, Well Canada provided their refreshing new ink pressed lemonades with all natural ingredients. Tried these recently and loved them! I’m so grateful that Well Canada could provide some for my creator friends.


Spirulina, Charcoal and Cayenne Ink Lemonades

Also WOC Beauty gave each creator one of their deluxe beauty subscription boxes chock full of all sorts of melanin goodies. Including my favourite Mama’s Life all natural black soap. Sign up for your box today.
