#BeTheOriginal Brand Influencer Dinner with Tropic Isle Living!

Hey Fly Friends! I told you all this weekend was eventful and I wasn’t joking. This Friday I was invited to attend Tropic Isle Living’s private THE LIVING ORIGINAL Influencer Dinner hosted by @NatashaLeeds and @CK_Frias at The Treehouse at The David Burke Kitchen in New York City! I was so humbled to have been invited and just as excited to attend! We were asked to wear “White with a Pop of Color” — Oooh, I love a good theme!

There was no way to know my usual 20 minute drive was going to take 45 due to Friday night traffic, missing out on the entire cocktail hour full of mixing and mingling with the other bloggers, being forced to creep on everyone’s Instastories from the Uber ride over, lol. Finally, I arrived at the restaurant and made my way upstairs to Treehouse (rooftop, guys) where the private dinner was being held. Tres chic! I arrived right after everyone was seated for Mrs. Hines, the CEO, to address the Influencers and drop gems like you wouldn’t believe. I was so happy to be a part of the experience! We ate an amazing dinner – my first time having eggplant parm and it was delicious! We drank delicious wine (or rose, if you preferred) and vibed out with some of the most genuine people I have met in this blogging world. I’m humbled to have been among of the Tropic Isle Living fam and excited for the future! (Sorry for such bad quality, I stole them from my Instastories from the night…tehehe)

You know they weren’t going to let us walk away empty handed — peep the raffia tote & #TilJBCO pin. I’m a sucker for details!

I’m beyond excited to try the new Hibiscus Island Body Scrub! It’s 100% Natural, made with hibiscus, grape seed, jojoba and of course, Jamaican Black Castor oils! Read your ingredients, people. Tropic Isle Living is a brand that makes products with integrity – you gotta respect that! If you have tried this body scrub, please let me know what you think! I’m so obsessed with the way it smells, I feel like a true island gyal!

Yes — old faithful Jamaican Black Castor Oil was in it too! Always excited to get my hands on that!

What are some of your favorite products from Tropic Isle Living … besides the Jamaican Black Castor Oil! That’s cheating … it’s everyone’s fav! 🙂

Thanks again Tropic Isle Living Fam and Natural Partners In Crime for putting together an amazing dinner!

  1. Oouuu I used to work at Mandee’s (in another life lol) . Super cute ensemble! Love Tropical Isle, however I’ll have to get familiar with their other products beside the Castor oil. I’m intrigued by that body scrub!
