Home & Tingz Tuesdays!

candlesBeing at total sucker for  both yummy candles and things Jamaican – I am totally impressed with these UN-WINED Candles!! They add such beauty and warmth to my home.

With that said surely  by now you’ve heard about ARTify Paint Parties or “Paint & Sips” –But ARTIfy, the brainchild of Jamaican artist Stephanie Lue Yen, offers even more. Last year ARTify joined the Jamaican-made craft industry with the successful launch of their first product, UN-WINED Candles.

Playing on the word “unwind”, to relax, UN-WINED Candles are made using repurposed wine bottles, giving them a second life instead of just being dumped. The process involves stripping the labels, cutting the bottles, polishing the edges and then hand-pouring the fragranced wax into the glasses.

The candles are available in 3 perfect scents, inspired by Jamaica, pimento, ortanique andcandles1 coffee. Once lit the candles fill the room with their gorgeous aromas (they smell so good you want to eat them) and the tinted glass from the wine bottles creates such a warm, calming glow!

You can contact ARTify at artifyja.com to order your UN-Wined Candles or stop by one of their retail outlets, Island Art and Framing in Orchid Village Plaza, Cellar8 in Manor Park Plaza and Polka Dots in Marvins Park, Ocho Rios. Follow ARTIfy on Instagram @artify_ja and on Facebook at ARTIFY JA to see what they’re up to.

Did you know ?!

rosemary2Rosemary water is one drink that you’ll want to consider the next time you’re feeling thirsty. It not only helps genuinely hydrate the body, it can help you feel better overall, and even look better. 

1. Helps Hydrate You

When you meet your specific water needs you’ll enjoy the benefits of staying hydrated, like maintaining the right body temperature, helping your cardiovascular system, and assisting in the cleansing of toxins. You’ll have more energy and help each of your organs do its job better when they’re getting enough water. Rosemary water adds that little something extra to regular water that makes you more likely to drink it more often, helping you stay hydrated each day. For the best results make sure you are using purified or spring water to avoid the intake of contaminants.

Pillow Talk!

Accent pillows are a very popular, smart and stylish way to add color, texture and fullsizerender-33personality to a room. White walls are a very common way and by far my favorite way to make a room bright and airy, so adding accent throw pillows is a must for keeping a room fabulous!!! These pillows actually have quotes and beautiful words of encouragement on them – which make them even more special. #getit #getitatkerry #kerrymwh #pillows #family #style #accent #fun #homeandstlye

Perks of dating a younger guy – Well so I’ve been told! :)

younger1. He has more energy — and his influence might make you healthier and more productive. Maybe you want to sleep in until 2 p.m. on a lazy Sunday, but he wants to get up, make eggs, run some errands at Home Depot, and have sex with you for 1,000 hours and/or until your vagina Can’t Even.

2. He’s less cynical. Unless he’s had an especially soul-crushing unpaid internship, he’s probably got some beautiful illusions about his promising place in the workforce. And we both know you can use some positivity in your life.

 3. He’s eager to please sexually. Not only has he got the energy thing on his side, but it’s unlikely that he’ll be a selfish lover. You’re like the Mrs. Robinson he has to sexually prove himself to! He will listen and possibly take notes! Whatever tips you suggest to him will be imprinted on his unformed brain and carried over to all future relationships. With great power comes great responsibility, bra.

4. He is at least partly into you because you impress him. Being the older woman means, among other things, that you are independent, smart, and have your shit together. And rather than this being intimidating, it turns him on. Continue reading “Perks of dating a younger guy – Well so I’ve been told! :)”

But First – Coffee Facts

stone1Most of us look forward to that first cup of coffee at the start of our day. But, for some of us – our first dose of caffeine comes before we’ve even stumbled downstairs to the kitchen, or out the door to our regular coffee shop. If you have a Pinterest account, you’re probably not surprised that you can use coffee in your everyday beauty routine by creating your own DIY beauty products. I wanted to run down a list of my favorite ways to use my favorite grounds on our skin and hair – so, if you’re into DIY projects, put these on your to do list.

Jewish Treasures of the Caribbean – My hot Pick of the week ….

You know I’m a real sucker for a beautiful coffee table book!! This one in particular is extra special and even more gorgeous to me because it highlights our sweet sweet Jamaica!!!

jewish-treasures-book_001This photographic essay highlights the little-known history of the first Jewish communities established in the New World dating to the 1600s. Award-winning photographer Wyatt Gallery documents the oldest synagogues and cemeteries on Barbados, Curacao, Jamaica, St. Thomas, St. Eustatius, and Suriname through his singular style of photos with histories written by Stanley Mirvis. The enclaves, formed by Sephardic Jews who fled the Catholic Inquisition, became so influential that they helped fuel the success of the American Revolution and partially finance the first synagogues in New York City and Newport, Rhode Island. Once home to thousands, today these historic communities are rapidly dwindling and could soon disappear. Only five historic synagogues remain in use, and many of the cemeteries have been damaged or lost to natural disasters, vandalism, and pollution. These photographs bear witness to the legacy of New World Judaism and provide a record for future generations.
