    My Raw Food Day Experience

    So July 11th is International Raw Food Day. The concept of a raw food diet gave me pause; like how good can food taste if it hasn’t been seasoned and cooked down? I was curious and fully expected to be greeted by a bunch of fancy arrange salads, boy was I surprised. Bena Nakawuki of The Lotus Line organized a raw food potluck where students of her workshops could showcase all that they have learned. I wasn’t ready!!! I had RAW ACKEE which I’ve been taught can poison you so a thug was scared, sea vegetable salad, vegan raw sushi (peep the video below for directions) and my fave Raw…

With beautiful, pristine waters and a small town charm you quickly understand why Old Hollywood stars would prefer to vacation here. With James Bond currently filming here we decided to head down to Portland (I promise I wasn’t stalking Daniel Craig) and stopped at a few places along the way. The beautiful Frenchmen’s Cove and a stop at a fruit stall for some holistic information and a serenade are just a few things that Portland has to offer. We could come back every weekend and find something new, such is the charm of Portland, Jamaica. It’s…

    Surviving Mother’s Day Without a Mother

    It’s that time of year again. When everyone is changing their blackberry display pics, facebook and twitter avatars to a picture of their mother. Work is sending out emails, everywhere is advertising Mother’s Day is this weekend. Sunday, tomorrow to be exact.

    Should women propose to men? That was the question I asked my God mother’s dinner group and got an earful. I’ve been asking this question on IG Live and in person and the dynamics are always the same.
