Thomson Cruises to Set Sail from Montego Bay, Jamaica

Posted by on in Jamaica, Travel | 4 comments

Are you a cruise vacation type of person? Ever wanted to sail the seas visiting different countries in a week on a luxury ship tricked out with the flyest amenities? It’s my kind of vacation and has been on my t0-do list forever. A big drawback for me not yet accomplishing this goal is the fact that us Jamaicans must factor in airfare to get to a port. If I have to fly to Miami first, I may as well stay and vacation in Miami. Thomson Cruises has now changed this for us. There will finally be a cruise line setting sail from Jamaica, cutting out the need to fly to another port first. Isn’t that awesome? The first cruise sets sail in December so we all have ample time to plan. Let’s see what our options are.

It’s been a while since I did a post of this nature but so many of the dresses made me want to comment that I just had to fire up the computer and jot down a few words. I have to start off with Lupita Nyong’o, she’s at the tip of everyone’s tongue now and was absolutely stunning, the belle of the ball indeed. It makes me hope that she continues to rise in her field as all this buzz is surely a grand entrance!

OOTD: Comfortably Corporate

Posted by on in Fashion | 2 comments

Hooray for cotton workwear that ain’t gotta be ironed! I stumbled upon some cheapie dresses on Amazon allaway from China that are slowly filling the gap Target left me with since I can’t order from them online and send to my freight forwarder. These China dresses all have bad reviews because people don’t like to read. They’re from China, which means they’re made for tiny people. They’re also averaging $15 a pop which means it ain’t got be Versace quality. Come on now. Order a size or two up and you have the perfect dress to take you through the season, maybe even more. This is my second dress and second blazer from the line and my cart is currently full of em

The delicious art of Food Photography

Posted by on in Random | Comments Off

Once in a while I get myself into staring for hours at food photographs on Tumblr, Facebook or other networks. There is something powerful about the food photography that makes us think that we are hungry when we are not. It may be a photo taken by the fanciest New York advertising photographer for an Italian restaurant in Manhattan, or it may be just a picture of gummy bears, some girl posted on Instagram. It is always the beauty of food that makes the menus in restaurants more colorful and the client craving for the taste of what he sees.

Mario Evon LIVE at Wedding Spectacular (Win tickets inside)

Posted by on in Jamaica | 2 comments

His website says he’s Babyface meets Bob Marley and when you take a closer look at the love singer’s adorably handsome face, you can definitely agree. Doctor by day, Reggae-Soul singer by night, Mario Evon is full of layers but you won’t shed any tears as you attempt to peel them all away. Come out and see Mario Evon perform at Wedding Spectacular, February 22-23 at the Jamaica Pegasus. His latest single Soul Tek describes the meeting of two spirits that happily intertwine with each other as the minutes go by. That’s exactly what happened with Mario as I sat to have a chat with him in Emancipation Park, getting to know a little bit more about the spirit behind the soothing voice.

Mario Evon and IrieDiva

Who is Mario Evon and what does it take to get closer to him? He’s been singing “from him eye deh a him knee” in choirs and boy bands but always kept it a hobby while he remained focus on school. He went all the way through medical school before doing a 180 and going all the way through music school. Talk about a back up plan. When asked which one is the love of his life, music slips out before I even finish my question. Mario has a long list of music accomplishments, having graced the Jamaica Jazz main stage and done Amateur Night at the Apollo and is pleased with the prospects of his music career. His catalogue currently reads like a long love story, admitting that love comes easy for him to write about. But is it easy to find?
