After trying out this magic water, as i like to call it! I’ve been uber impressed with how well it removes my makeup and all impurities from my face, also how little of it i need. It leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed throughout the day. I also find it cool that it’s fuss-free and doesn’t need rinsing off, especially in a hurry. Cant forget to mention, how small and convenient the bottle is to travel with!
These days, it seems like coconut oil has hired a new publicist! Everyone is talking about it, and everyone is using it… but, what is it actually good for? Turns out, besides being wonderful for cooking, coconut oil is an incredible superfood that has tons of different benefits! Before we dive into the many different uses for this magical food, let’s first be sure that we are using an ORGANIC, UNREFINED coconut oil. It is important to work with unrefined coconut oil, as it is far less processed than refined coconut oil. Refined coconut oil is usually bleached, deodorized (to get rid of that delicious coconutty scent and flavor), and processed to increase its smoke point (which is the point at which an oil begins to burn). So, while unrefined coconut oil has a lower smoke point, it has far more benefits and advantages, without the addition of processing and unhealthy additives! Now, let’s dive into some of the wonderful uses of coconut oil, other than simply using it for cooking! Continue reading “Coco for Coconut oil !!!!!”
Another road trip, another adventure, another food coma, another perfect day! Last week miss t and i along with some friends pilled up in the countryman, and headed up to the BEAUTIFUL Clifton Mount coffee estate.
The Clifton Mount Blue Mountain coffee comes from one of the oldest and most revered JBM coffee plantations which dates from the mid-eighteenth century. The location is certainly the most beautiful with its 112 hectares reaching 1300 metres above sea level. This exquisite and exclusive coffee is produced to the highest standards from cherries picked entirely from the plantation and yields a wonderfully mild and graceful coffee with a rich apple bouquet and a perfect union of acidity and body. The incredible richness of the soil, adequate rainfall, and the cool and foggy climate are optimal conditions for its slow growth and cultivation.
Let me just say from start to finish i was in total awe and shock at how beautiful and enchanting the property was. Absolute perfection in every way possible. As you walk onto the immaculate lawns flooded with flowers,George the peacock – you then look up and there it is – the Clifton estate.
Miss T being the Amazing culinary goddess she is, decided she was going to put on a spread for us! I then decided put my hands to use and styled our table. We sure do make a good team and i sure am falling in love with these amazing weekly foodie trips!
Hearing you partner say “I love you” is undeniably great, especially when you feel that way in return. It’s validating, comforting, and often inspires you to say it right back. But if your partner doesn’t say “I love you” as frequently as you’d like, it may feel like you’re missing that confirmation of their affection. And, in some cases, it may even cause you to question the state of your relationship.
That’s why it’s important to keep in mind not everyone finds it important to say the L word 24/7, and plenty more don’t even feel comfortable doing so. “Some people weren’t raised in families where the words ‘I love you’ were used frequently or even at all. Saying the words can feel foreign or uncomfortable. If your partner doesn’t express their love verbally, this may be one reason why. But it doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t care.
It’s possible you and your partner simply have different love languages, or different ways of showing affection. According to Dr. Gary Chapman, there are five love languages: using words of affirmation, showing appreciation through acts of service, giving/receiving gifts, spending quality time together, and showing love through touch.
If you’re someone who likes to hear words of affirmation, while your partner is someone who shows love in other ways, it might feel like you’re not on the same page. So be sure to share your concerns with your partner. Love needs to be communicated one way or another. Here, a few ways experts say people can show their love, without actually saying it.

I am recently back from the best girls weekend ever!! For months now we have been asking our friend Connie what she wants to do for her bachelorette .. Since her wedding isn’t too traditional, her immediate response was, “I don’t really want one!” The idea of wearing a feather boa and going up to strangers to do weird dares isn’t really her thing LOL. Howevvvver not doing anything just wasn’t an option in my opinion. I mean helloooo you only get married once – I HOPE. She then suggested that instead we plan a girls weekend away. Something super low-key. Simply a good excuse to get away for a weekend with some awesome girlfriends, where we would do nothing but walk around and shop during the day and then consume awesome food and party in the evenings. We immediately decided on heading to South Beach! I did all my research before, figured it was a good time to finally go to a bunch of places I’ve been wanting to experience. I mapped it out and Connie and Jess floated along, and it was one of the best weekends ever. There is something pretty awesome about spending a solid weekend with your special ladies.
We stayed at Riviera south beach which thankfully was the cutest little spot, rite smack in the middle of all the good Miami vibes – good food, good shopping and most of all great culture!! The rooms are set up suite style with an old mixed with modern feel … the outdoors made me feel like i could be in Bali or somewhere very boho – cute cute cute!!!!
Monkey island is on my list of favorite things!. There’s not much to it except a really, small beach with crystal clear water, a canopy of trees hanging over and a swing dangling from a tree branch. With that said – It’s PERFECT!!!!!!
Monkey Island is offshore from the folly ruins in Port Antonio. The stretch of water separating the Island from the mainland is very shallow (about ankle deep at low tide) so it is easy to walk across. However, watch your step if you are walking barefoot as the sea bed is dotted with sea urchins .
The island gets its name from the colony of monkeys which Alfred Mitchell’s explorer son-in-law Hiram Bingham bought in to Jamaica. Rather than keeping the monkeys in his mansion (the now ruined folly mansion), Mitchell let them live on the island.
