Today we have an artiste fresh on the scene, Yanah, from the REM Collective. She’s pushing her second song release, this time a little freestyle. I’m really feeling it, she has some amazing vocals, and the lyrics are just lovely. I hope this song lifts your spirit like it did mine.
Find more of Yanah, @Yanah_i on Twitter & Soundcloud.com/Yanah_Music.
Life will come at you,
Plain and simple, be prepared,
‘Cause it will come fast.

Hi Everyone 🙂
So unnu remember the little lady I told you about the other day? The one that stole all of the shine at New Wave one Monday? That’s Lila Iké, from the In.Digg.Nation Collective. She has released her first single, Biggest Fan. This song is to her mother, her biggest supporter. I don’t know if I love this song because it hit so close to home, or simply because her voice on the track is so hypnotic. I’ll go with both… and I must big up the producers The DrumKeys & Diggy because this rhythm is too sweet. Take a listen, Biggest Fan by Lila Ike.

This was my first ever Carnival Road March (scratched record? comment if you’ve seen this already) and I had decided to go with Bacchanal Jamaica, there were a bit of ups and downs but I’m glad I made that choice. The road march with Bacchanal Jamaica had me in euphoria. I loved being in costume surrounded by the different colours, it truly gave me life, getting on bad as a reveller. The Dj’s, the energy from the patrons (and the drinks) were great. Soca did give me my powers because the route was so long… but I made it mostly intact, here’s my journey.

Aching heart throbbing,
In search of the best for me,
Leap to a new space.

I woke with a groan, knowing damn well we should have went to bed long before 12am but I wanted to be the first to wish Autumne a happy birthday. I also knew my best friend very well and hit snooze, there was no way she’d be getting up just yet. I hit stop on the alarm this time, grateful for the 10 more minutes. The house spun with the two of us fighting for the shower, getting ready, listening out for the kettle, and checking the time. We had to be at the makeup artist’s place by 6am.
We got there on time by the what must have been magic, or I guess the thief of a taxi driver that over charged us. We hopped out the taxi and began to call the MUA. None of us had credit, and with amazing luck the light drizzle got heavier. I called her on Whatsapp twice and it rang without an answer. As I was about to try again, the gates to the apartment opened and we rushed in.Team member number one of three greeted us, and an hour long wait ensued because of the tardy client before us. When the rest of the team arrived, they got to work promptly and moved in sync with ease. Completing both our faces, leaving two giddy girls, snapping a lot of selfies. Finally feeling the buzz of anticipation about jumping in the Carnival Road March for the first time. Continue reading “On The Road”
The weekend starts from Thursday right? This week seems to be about the arts, and it warms my heart. To be honest, there’s always something to do here in Kingston but I hope you really come and check my list, and pick something. Myself will be going to quite a few of these, and I’ll try my best to do some recap posts 🙂 Continue reading “Upcoming Events!”
Hi Everyone 🙂
Today I have the song “Skin Toned” for you, it is by Royal Blu & Runkus. This one is deep and I love it. We all come from God…yet we’re judged by our skin tone. Not only the message of this song is important, the word play is on point. I’m also gonna big up the producer, JLL.
Take a listen! Current mood:

Hello loves, today I’m sharing a gem I found, it is Earthtones Designs. Dominique (owner) hand makes healing jewelry, which is jewelry with crystals or gem stones as some may call it. Her work is inspired by nature, and she sticks to the mantra of “Wear your intentions.” I don’t remember when I followed Earthtones on Instagram(IG) but one day I was scrolling down my timeline and I saw a photo of loc jewelry with an African Jade gem stone on it and I was like wow, this is so pretty. So I messaged Dominique enquiring about it, though I wasn’t ready to purchase it at the time.
Fast forward to last week I sent her another message about the loc jewelry but that specific piece had been sold. The pieces she had on hand were too big for my loc, so she said she could make one to fit, and that she would bring the crystals she had so I could chose what I wanted. At that time all I knew was that I wanted a stone from the earth element. So I did a bit of research based off of what I saw on her IG and decided I wanted a piece of peridot as my embellishment. That is the addition to my Coco basket, custom made loc jewelry with a peridot stone. It came with a piece of sage for cleansing, and an information card stating the metaphysical properties of the stone.
The bag the loc jewelry came in, along with a piece of sage and a paper stating the benefits of Peridot.
