Hello lovelies, happy Tuesday!

This is a quick pop in to share a special announcement. *Drumroll*

If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or my Facebook page you probably already know this, but if not, my very first mental health, wellness and lifestyle newsletter drops this afternoon and it’s fricken loaded with gems!

After blogging for 10 years (I know, long time) I want to engage readers in a different way that’s still awesome. In case you missed it, this year I’m taking blogging much more seriously and going full speed ahead with it, so the newsletter is basically an extension of that move, it also comprises other aspects of what I do (for work) and brings it all together. It will go out every two weeks, and, inside it, you can expect to find resources for mental health, general health and wellness, make-up/beauty and skincare tips and advice, plus more fun lifestyle stuff (similar to what I post here) that I’ve curated for your ‘edutainment’.

My hope is that you’ll not only love it, but also find it useful, whether you struggle with mental illnesses or not, I guarantee there’s something in it that you’ll find interesting. Plus the best news, ladies and gents, is that it’s not just ‘woman friendly’ content either. (Come through, male readers!)

I also want to take this opportunity to say a giant thank you to everyone who reads, shares, interacts with and learns from my posts… it’s so SO appreciated!

Please keep the feedback coming as always. You can either comment here under the post as you’d usually do or just reply directly to the newsletter (it works both ways) to e-mail me your thoughts. This is really exciting… now I have to go put on the finishing touches and we’ll be in touch again in a few hours.

By the way, if you’re interested in reading it and you haven’t signed up for it yet, you can go ahead and subscribe here.

Love, light & blessings to all of you and I look forward to your replies! *cue nervous jitter*

Hello lightbeams!

It’s been a while. A lot has been happening for me personally and professionally and I’ve been doing quite a bit in both respects… mostly big changes, hence the quietness around these parts. However, I’m now ready to re-emerge (kind of) because there’s a lot of work to be done.

Remember I mentioned the FaceDepression public awareness campaign and the official launch of its Jamaican arm? Well, it went GREAT!!! See the album here on our Facebook page for proof. (You can also read fellow bloggers Petchary and Bianca Weld’s views on the event if you’d rather not take my word for it)🙂

As a follow-up, I was invited to speak on the initiative on CVM at Sunrise (a Jamaican morning TV show) on behalf of our team. Anxiety and self-doubt wanted me to say no, but I got a sign from the universe (yes, I’m all about that) that it was supposed to be my job, so I went. I was VERY nervous and flustered, especially when the conversation took an unexpectedly personal turn, but I managed to eke it out and it went really well. In case you missed it (don’t worry, nuff people did), I’ve linked it below, so just go ahead and press play.

Thanks for reading/watching, love and light until next time!

Check In- REM Guest House-Kingston- JamaicaHola lovelies! I haven’t done a review/travel piece in a little bit and it’s an absolute pleasure to share the details on the charming REM Guest House in Kingston with you today. I must admit that prior to being approached for the feature I had never heard of it, but as you should all know by now, mystery gets me every time and I’m always up for an adventure. Plus, as part of Touch The Road (it’s a travel and entertainment curation network if you’re new here) I was eager to find out how such a seemingly sweet #StayLocal spot flew below my radar. Anyway, a few e-mails and telephone conversations later, the date was set and I had the opportunity to go check it out for myself with up to five other people — three adults, two children.

I wanted the full experience since it was dubbed a family friendly space and we all know how honest children are – they’d be the first to let me know if the place sucks. Alas, the arrangement didn’t quite work out that way but… *drumroll* it was still awesome! More anon…
