L’ERBOLARIO Osmanthus – What i’m wearing

osmanthus-perfume-limited-edition-50-mlAn incredible fragrance enclosed in a tiny flower. The Osmanthus flower has been known for centuries for its exceptional perfume, which is so rich that “it spreads for miles,”
as the Chinese writer, Yang Wanli, wrote.
With just a few sprays, its soft touch will gracefully embrace you and stay with you throughout the day, announcing you like a heart-warming breeze wherever you go

We have often heard that happiness lies in small things. To realise this, you just need, for once, to move your eyes away from your smartphone and take a look around. Lying, for example, on a green meadow, just turn your gaze and pause to admire an ant patiently carrying a crumb; or a blade of grass moving in the afternoon breeze; or a butterfly flying and then resting on a branch. But not only when you are surrounded by nature – the greatness of small things can be found everywhere around us, even in the city!

Celabration of LOVE & A new year in One

What’s better than a wedding? A wedding that’s celebrated on one of the most festive days of the year — that’s what. This NYE was my second time back to back celebrating at a wedding. NYE honestly isn’t my favorite time but i happen to love New Years Eve weddings as they combine the excitement and celebration of a new love with a new year; i guess you could say the best of both worlds – specially if your besties are there ! Two very special people tied the knot this NYE and i couldn’t be happier for them. Such an honor to celebrate with the Stunning Mel and Mic Xx

Shaggy & Friends 2018

IMG_4770Shaggy and his team outdid themselves yet again! What an amazing production you gave us, and  for such an amazing cause – Big up to everybody that played their part in donating to the event. Was good to rock out with good friends and family ..

The Bustamante Hospital for Children represents a tremendous opportunity to help preserve and better the lives of children. The hospital is not just the only paediatric hospital in the English speaking Caribbean, but here in Jamaica, it’s the only paediatric hospital which offers specialized health services for children. Although Shaggy has made significant contributions to the hospital; The donation of 2 specialized ventilators, an electroencephalogram (EEG) machine
(used to monitor brain activity in epileptics and seizure sufferers as well as those young patients with brain tumours) a tabletop sterilizing machine, funds to upgrade of the medical oxygen system and other numerous donations over the years; the Bustamante Hospital for Children is still in desperate need of assistance. This highly anticipated concert is always nothing short of amazing – this year was no different!

Jamaica through her eyes – The Gap Cafe

IMG_3956.jpgWhat better way to spend boxing day ? Just outside the entrance to Holywell Recreation Park, the Gap Café is the perfect little spot  for awesome  food and coffee before (or after) hiking around the park. Many people  make the 21 mile trip from Kingston just to eat and take in the views at the café.

The rustic café serves mainly traditional Jamaican food such as curried goat and, oxtail and escoveitched fish. The café also serves home made pastries. However, no trip to the Gap Café would be complete without enjoying a cup of Blue Mountain Coffee. The Gap IMG_3948Café is said to serve the best cup of coffee in the world, with fresh beans taken from the surrounding plantations and brewed to order.

The Gap Café is also famous for its stunning views and wildlife. The area is home to many hummingbirds. The birds fly around the many feeding stations hanging outside the café’s windows so we can view these flying beauties through the large open windows. The café also has panoramic views of the misty Blue Mountains, on a rare clear day it is also possible to see as far as Kingston and Port Royal.

The Gap Café was built in the 1930s and it is said that Ian Flemming wrote Dr. No here. In December 2000 a cottage next to the café was open for bed and breakfast, offering a tranquil get-away-from-it-all experience in the mountains.

Setting GOALS Vs. Resolutions

IMG_4890New Year, New You. I’m not a big fan of setting New Years’ Resolutions. Resolutions tend to fade real quickly. I am a big fan of setting real, actionable, trackable goals. So, tweak your practice of over-promising what you’ll accomplish in the New Year to developing an actual plan to accomplish a couple of big goals. This isn’t a list – this is a plan. Spend some time on it. The more time and energy you put into this, the more specific you are, the more you’ll accomplish.

 Goal Setting – Here’s How:

Step 1: Out with the Old, In with the New.
Clear your head of 2017. Reflect on what you accomplished, give yourself a pat on the back, and move on. Don’t dwell on what you didn’t do. It’s a good practice to do a year-end clean-up. Clean-up the house, files, de-clutter, de-tox. Continue reading “Setting GOALS Vs. Resolutions”

HAPPY 2018 From yours TRULY !!

This Year –

Hang on to your truth and respect the truth of others. Choose to be happy. Forgive those that you can forgive, and seek forgiveness of those who deserve it. Do something outside your comfort zone. Be the voice for someone who has no voice. Be quiet strength. Be the type of kindness that is strength. Remember that love is a verb. Choose healthy foods, activities and people. Fall six times, get up again seven, persevere. Wish people a lovely day. Live honestly, truly and with integrity Xx
