Aside from knowing a lot about hair and beauty, Patrice Grell Yursik, the creator of the popular blog,, knows a great deal about Trinidad. Why? Well, because the blogger was born and raised there of course! In an interview with, Yursik spoke about the things she misses most about Trinidad (especially now that she lives in Chicago–known for bitter cold winters):

“I miss the food, the music, and the diversity of Trini culture. I miss the melting pot. I miss standing with a bake and shark in my hand at that big table of condiments, while hearing the crash of the waves off Maracas Bay. I miss Trini Christmas and my family’s Old Year’s Night party. I miss Sunday lunch and the rituals of home.”
