One Coco: Sen Say

Today I’m telling you about Sen Say Soy Candles; this is the second addition to the basket from A Jamaican Made Christmas. I didn’t buy a candle though, I bought their Aroma Beads. You place them in your drawers (teehee) to keep your clothes smelling nice. The brand Sen Say promotes recycling and keeping the environment healthy; and as I said they previously, they make scented soy candles. The candles last longer, they burn cleaner- leaving no toxins or pollutants in the air- and they’re made of soybean, which is a renewable source.

I was waltzing through the crowd looking for things to buy, and I stumbled upon the Sen Say booth. I was intrigued by a vanilla and coffee scented candle but I had so many similar scents, I left it. I smelt the aroma beads though, and had to get it, it was cheap and smelt so good; I didn’t have anything like this scent in my arsenal. I had to ask the owner about the scent, it was one of her specialties, she said it was a scent she had designed for her soft rose soy candle. So, the newest addition to the (Jamaican Brand) Coco basket is Aroma Beads by Sen Say.

Bae Vibes!

Stones Throw Bar, Kingston The music was LOUD or turned all the way up, Stones Throw Bar had quickly become one of my favourite event spaces because of the intimacy of the space. The stage was small and perfect for an acoustic performance. The main seating […]

Hi Everyone!

I have brand new reggae music for you! Today I’m sharing “Lightning Storm” by 5 Star! The first thing that grabbed me was that bassline, the groove is so nice; the rhythm has an original rockas reggae feel to it. On this smooth riddim 5 Star raps animatedly, warning Babylon to be stable before they run into trouble or the lightning storm. His lyrics have a strong militancy, as he pushes to defend himself with protection from Haile Selassie I. Take a listen to Lightning Storm by 5 Star, produced by Kabaka Pyramid and Genius.

Tell me in the comments below what you think!
