Matchstik is an artist with an interesting story and lots to talk about. He is an Aquarius based in Los Angeles. Aquarians born on February 4 are intelligent and quirky and can give the impression of being “airheads”; in reality they are more practical than they seem. They are inspired by what can be achieved through hard work. They have enormous self-discipline and can be extremely austere when it comes to cutting unnecessary encumbrances. Matchy is that and more.

Matchstik’s remarkable song writing abilities earn him 4 out of 5 stars on for his infectiously catchy single. “Surina’ Song ft Foreword” which he wrote and recorded him self in his studio apartment while living in Los Angeles, CA which caught the ear of London’s award winning and 2x MOBO award nominee Dj Masterstepz who was nominated best club and radio Dj in 2008 (Mobo Awards) broke the record in London during his famous radio show “Masterstepz” on Choice Fm London’s number one radio station.

Matchstik was also featured on which is the largest Hip Hop forum on the web, Myxer dot com, a leading ring-tone website with over 16 million users, His songs “It’s Ok” and “I’m So Fly ft Jaz” was featured on two episodes of the Fox Reality show “Amazing Adventures Of A Nobody” and ultimately, he was featured on Canada’s number one celebrity blog

Honey Dipp-ed!

Two of my ultimate fly girls Dionne and Mickella always keep me sunkissed and honey dipped! They are the beauty and the brains behind the ‘best kept secret’ products of the Honey Dipp Spa Boutique. Aside from the retail aspect, the girls started the Inner Beauty, Outer Glow campaign in support of women focused charities.

My favorites are:
#1 Honey Buns in Papaya

A unique two in one product, a natural sea-sponge to gently exfoliate is embedded in moisturizing glycerine soap. Both the natural sea sponge and the glycerine soap work together to give your skin a natural glow. Our honey buns are infused with the most enticing fragrances.

Dipped In
A natural humectant derived from palm kernel oil, excellent for smoothing and moisturising the skin, helps to prevent moisture loss and skin dehydration.

#2 Lotion in Coconut Lime

Sheer opulence, our body lotion has a light milky base formulated with silk amino acids and skin-reviving antioxidants for a light-weight silky feel. Hydrating, moisturizing and rejuvenating, our body lotion is a natural daily indulgence.

Dipped In
Avocado is extremely rich & high in vitamins A, D, E & K. A premium oil, rich in nutrients and packed with proteins and minerals. Avocado has intense softening, healing & anti wrinkle properties.

Jojoba is light-weight and odourless. It rejuvenates and promotes new cell growth while sorting out problem skin, without clogging and leaving a greasy feel.

Shea Butter:
Shea butter is known for its regenerative, emollient and protectant properties. It aids in the prevention of premature aging and offers a unique characteristic of providing extra sun protection.

These are some of the best ‘just cuz’ gifts you can give to your honeybunny, trust me 🙂
