    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. It’s a beautiful day where you get to celebrate a mother’s love and how it has shaped you in your life. And although you show her love throughout the year, this one day you put ALL differences aside and tell her “ I appreciate and love you”. It’s a great day and one to be celebrated. Unfortunately, I like many others have lost my mother and so Mother’s…

    When Money Matters (and when it doesn’t)

    I am not ashamed to say that in my adult life I have lived in situations where I have had more than enough money to meet my needs and had situations where I am mentally adding up (down to the tax) all the items I am putting into the shopping cart. At times like this it would be nice to know how to make easy money. I am also blessed with a loving support group who are there when I have it and, even more so, when I do not. So, I am here to share two very important life lessons that I have picked up in my complicated, chaotic…

    Jamaicans Moving Towards Self-Care

    Last week, my company was involved in the Medical Association of Jamaica’s (MAJ) annual symposium, which allowed businesses in the field of health care to display their latest product offerings. I was pleased to see a few involved in health technology like myself. It tells me that the market is really changing as we are beginning to embrace technology more and more and understanding its importance to the health-care business. I was also impressed with the receptiveness of the audience which primarily consisted of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, medical technicians and even some outside of the medical field.

    DIY Restoration Projects

    Hi!, So one thing that I find most relaxing is DIY projects. It’s an excuse to get my hands dirty and also spruce up some items at home that might be falling off. One of my projects was my grandfather shaving stool. I used to watch him shave with an old school razor every morning. It was or little thing, he’d mix the powder, I’d put it on and then he’d shave. Sometimes if he was rushing, grandfather would do everything himself and i’d just sit on the stool and watch. So when he gave me the stool it was a lot more than a piece of furniture. For a…

    5 Girl Codes You Should Never Break

    A Girl Tribe, your group of confidantes where you can discuss everything from the latest makeup looks, business deals even sexual positions (or lack of) whatever it is, your tribe is run by a certain set of rules called Girl Codes and they usually keep the peace. Girl code is not usually discussed, you just know (it’s often based around common decency & love for your fellow lady). So, with recent stories in the press of friends sleeping with best friends sister’s baby daddies (cough cough Jordyn) we thought we’d remind our readers with what’s cool and what’s absolutely not: DO NOT leave your friends by themselves at ANY function:…
