Natural Body Essentials Entrepreneur Feature

Hi there Lovelies and welcome to my first entrepreneur feature for 201 9! I admire anyone who has a passion for what they do and I am also a serious product junkie so I knew that this company would be a perfect fit for this feature. I am all about that natural life and I think we should all be conscious of what we put on our bodies. I think we all can agree natural is the way to go. Check out Natural Body Essentials on Instagram and Facebook .

Meet The Boss Crafter Behind It All

My name is Rea Mclean, I am from Trinidad & Tobago. I’ve always loved creating things with my hands. I’ve always been interested in making candles actually, I would look at videos on Youtube about how it’s done. I could get lost for in it for hours. I then started watching videos on soapmaking and thought it was really cool. I had always wanted to try it but was always nervous somehow. After a few years of just watching videos and making all kinds of excuses, I saw an ad for classes teaching how to make candles and soap and I signed up. I learned so much more than I thought I would, not realizing that it would change my life.

When and why did you decide to start your business?

I started selling soaps and candles last year. It first started as a side hustle. Something to do on the side to make some extra money. Living on my own after going through some tough times I had to figure out how to keep afloat. I started to read more and educate myself more about what I was creating. I wanted to do something different not just make soaps but I wanted to make soaps that can really benefit my customers. So reading and testing out the soaps really allowed me to understand how it works.

So here I was making soaps and candles. Now my friends and family always encouraged me but I was always doubtful. So I had to put my doubts aside because I had to believe that God didn’t put me in this world to suffer. Something I started saying is,  I refuse to be a victim of poverty. So I started to make more soaps more candles posting pictures online and on WhatsApp. It was slow for a while and probably because I wasn’t pushing myself hard enough. After losing my job I started to push harder. I added lip balms and deodorants to my line as well, and with the help and encouragement of my loved ones I created Natural Body Essentials. Now I must say that I have gotten it wrong at times as well and failure helps you to learn. Always remember to pick yourself up and keep moving forward.

What products do you offer and where can we find them?

At Natural Body Essential we create soaps, lotions, body butter, lip balms, deodorant, and candles as well.
One of our soap lines is the Unscented Series- these soaps are designed for persons with any skin problems from, psoriasis, eczema, blemishes or sensitive skin. I’m really proud of this because a lot of people have skin problems and are looking for a solution to it; especially here in the West Indies. The products are made from natural ingredients and cured to ensure maximum results. That also goes for the luxury soaps as well. We have a page on Facebook and Instagram which gives an opportunity to interact with customers and people from all over the world.
One of my dreams is to create a product line for hotels worldwide .

Natural Body Essentials to me embodies the perfect balance of passion and creativity. Being an entrepreneur is definitely challenging but with a positive attitude and a drive to succeed all things are possible. I think that is something we all can apply to our lives. Check them out if you are in need of some pampering, me time, looking for a gift or you need a natural product to add that extra breath of fresh air to your life.

Wrist Culture : Handmade Jewelry For Everyone and Every Occasion

wristculture barbados

Hi there lovelies. Welcome to my third entrepreneur feature. Today is all about handmade jewellery. Beads and stones and charms oh my 🙂 If you have not heard of this company already let me introduce you to Wrist Culture. Wrist Culture offers exquisite handmade designs for any and every occasion. I am kind of addicted at the moment. I am currently about to buy my fourth piece. Something about this brand just screams luxury and classic elegance. I recently had a short interview with the owner as you know I love to promote small business and I also love to shop. I joke with him all the time that he can take all of my money.

Check out these alluring designs on Facebook @   

On Instagram or Place your orders via 

wrist culture bajezen .blog


When was Wrist Culture founded and what inspired you to start the business?


Wrist Culture’s debuted in May 2016 with the Royal Court Collection. The two-year anniversary is a little over a month away, May 12th.

The concept of Wrist Culture was to create beautifully beaded bracelet collections with pieces which are both limited in their number but also accessible in terms of price.


Share with us your main sources of creative inspiration.

As cliché as it sounds, music would have to be one of my main sources of inspiration. Listening to artists like Lana Del Rey, Rihanna, The Killers  even Rick Ross provides me with such wonder as to “What would the person singing or being sung about wear on their wrist?” Additionally, I have a background in retail fashion marketing where I always tried to tap into the minds of my clients’ customers to anticipate what they’d want from season to season.

Tell us what makes your brand unique?

For me, each bracelet is a work of art designed to be timeless so as to never be too classic or too outlandish. No disrespect to my contemporaries and predecessors, but Wrist Culture has a heavy focus on originality of design, quality of craftsmanship and the after-sales service to ensure customers can enjoy their pieces for years, not just weeks or months. To that end the components are tested, coated to prevent premature tarnishing, updated when better options come along and of course, the First Repair Free service and affordable Bracelet Refresh service to fix, update or upgrade a piece.




What was your favourite collection and why? 

That’s pretty tough to answer because each collection will, of course, be special to me for their own reasons but I’ll tell you my 3 favourite collections.

1. The Royal Court Collection which was my very first collection. It introduced the world to Wrist Culture and showed my contenders that this brand was seriously revolutionizing how bracelet designs in Barbados and by extension the Caribbean were done.

2. The Higher Power Collection which came immediately after the Royal Court Collection was one of Wrist Culture’s most successful collections and it appealed to both the religious and free-spirited. Using bone and wood really gave the pieces a feeling of connectivity to both the earth and to the heavens & the spirit.

3. The 2018 Dragon Collection which is a rebirth of the 2017 Dragon Collection. This time around it featured three tiers of designs to reflect tastes and price points. I love this fledgeling collection because it shows the evolution from the 2017 version to the 2018 version and features some of the most beautiful and admittedly polarizing designs of Wrist Culture’s history. Very symbolic as we approach the second year!

 Do you have a signature piece? 

While each collection does feature an ultra limited edition design, my signature piece is one I wear almost every day. It features Onyx, Blue Goldstone, Swarovski crystals and an Arc du Triomphe charm I picked up in Paris on a sterling silver jump ring. Only one of its kind.

Do you create custom orders and how can someone contact you to have their design made?

Custom orders do comprise a large share of the work coming out of Wrist Culture, and we encourage our customers to be creative and we will work together to create their dream pieces. Simply email us at to get started!

What are the goals of the business? 


Ultimately, the main goals of Wrist Culture are to inspire other designers to challenge their creations and evolve. Also to get to a point where Wrist Culture can branch out into fine jewellery including real gold and silver links and have charms forged specifically for the brand.

Entreprenuer Feature : The Pal Project

pal project bajezen

Hi there, beautiful people welcome to my second entrepreneur feature. I am really excited to share this product with you guys. This week I am featuring a young Barbadian entrepreneur. Roland F. A Harewood. He honestly is one of the most versatile individuals I know. I recently had a short interview with him about Pal, A product which is designed to aid children with sleep.As a mother, this is one I can truly appreciate. 


Tell me about yourself.

Wow, where to start. Currently, I’m the Director of PR and Business Development at Logical. I’m relatively young (for now), smart, passionate about my work & friendships and I guess some people would say I’m a bit ruthless when it comes to making snap decisions in both business and in life.


What is Pal?

Pal is a rest-assist device, perfect for children. It provides night-time comfort using non-disruptive lighting patterns. Children often need some light in order to feel a sense of safety and security in the absence of their parent(s) being physically present. Pal® does this in a way that supports children’s mental development and provides a comforting reassurance to parents. However, anyone can use Pal to help calm their minds before bed.

What inspired you to create Pal? 

My partner Steve Dash is who actually conceptualized the device back in 2013 and I’m the one who gave Pal its name. Originally he wanted to design a night-light that didn’t look childish and gimmicky, then he refined it after discussing it with Dr Cheryl Rock who is a specialist in children’s mental health and development. We worked together at an offshore company, that’s where we met. It wasn’t the most pleasant experience but that was our first time working on a startup and using the crowdfunding platform. So ultimately from that experience came this opportunity to think and do things differently than how they’re done here. Food for thought I’d say.

Where and when will the product be available?

Speaking of crowdfunding, Pal will be available for pre-order on Indiegogo in late November, and our campaign will last for 60 days. However, we are currently live and running on and you can also follow @palbylogical on Twitter and Instagram and Like u on Facebook –
