Do you have a favorite product or item you love that makes you feel great?

Hell yes. The Hibiscus lotion bar from Papa Rozier Farms is my shit. This little shop in Bushwick is absolutely amazing. All of their products are directly from their organic farm in Haiti. They’re not only free of nasty chemicals, but their profits also go to their education program in Haiti so I absolutely love supporting them.
