To Drink or to Learn about the Drink, that is the question!

with Christopher Reckord | Thursday, January 19, 2017    

Learning just a bit more about wine can exponentially increase your enjoyment of this amazing and ever-evolving elixir of the gods. (Steven Rothfeld)

Wine is art; wine is a drink. Some try to make wine simple, but wine is really very complicated. Wine is ever-changing, wine is fun, wine is ever-expanding with hundreds of new products released weekly around the globe. Wine is history, wine is geography, wine is culture, wine is travel, wine is tradition, but there is a renewal of sorts annually with every new vintage. It is against this backdrop that understanding just a bit more about wine can exponentially increase your enjoyment of this el ... Read More

Through Our Eyes... Nasha-Monique Douglas, senior brand manager (The Great Jamaican Beer)

Sunday, January 15, 2017    

SO Contributing Editor Nasha-Monique Douglas shares her eight tips for maintaining your fabulousness for 2017 (BRYAN CUMMINGS)

If you are Pretty, Hot and Tempting (PHAT), you would have heard one or all of the following statements before: “You would be so pretty if you lost 20 pounds,” or “You cute for a fat girl,” and, my favourite, “You look so good in your clothes.” Let me put these to bed once and for all. “You would be just as pretty if you gain 20 pounds,” “I am fabulous, period,” and “I look good in my clothes because I have good taste.” I ...

Through Our Eyes... Carla Gail-Ann Hollingsworth - Pepsi Jamaica, Export Marketing Manager

Sunday, January 15, 2017    

While going through the crowd I couldn’t help but gaze on how beautifully dressed our people were; from gowns, risqué outfits to well-tailored suits, people were ‘dressed to puss foot’ — Carla Gail-Ann Hollingsworth, SO contributing editor. (BRYAN CUMMINGS)

Voted # 24 in The New York Times’ 52 places to visit, Kingston, Jamaica is seen as a cultural destination and the heartbeat of the Caribbean. The publication praised our new lodgings, local eateries and, of course, our music. Attending a local party is the best way to experience our music, whether dancehall or reggae, and our fashion. It is a unique type of social experience. Now don’t think of the Love Boat or a scenic cruise around the Kingston Harbour, but rather a boat that nev ... Read More

Through Our Eyes... Lyndsey McDonnough - Managing Director, Market Me Consulting

Sunday, January 15, 2017    

The start of a new year is often a time when we do some much-needed introspection and evaluate the current state of our lives against where we want to be and what we want to achieve — Lyndsey McDonnough, SO contributing editor (BRYAN CUMMINGS)

The start of a new year is often a time when we do some much-needed introspection and evaluate the current state of our lives against where we want to be and what we want to achieve. Though our lists of goals may differ, one similarity we tend to share is achieving a healthier mind, body and soul. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is something that, as different as we are, tends to bring us all together. For some individuals, exercising might seem like a tedious task, but over the years I have fo ... Read More

Through Our Eyes... Catherine Goodall - LASCO, Marketing Manager-Beverages

Sunday, January 15, 2017    

SO Contributing Editor Catherine Goodall — let me be clear, it’s not about wearing designer clothes. It is about choosing what you wear and wearing it well. Our clothing is often a reflection of who we are, how we value ourselves, what we are thinking, or how we are feeling. (BRYAN CUMMINGS)

Proverbs 31:22 “She is clothed in fine linen and purple.” From the days of the Bible, what you wore was a representation of who you are. The virtuous woman did not dress in a shabby manner. She was industrious and enterprising. She did not consider it a mark of spirituality to go around looking impoverished, dilapidated, and threadbare. Rather, she wanted to carry herself in a manner that depicted a sign of God’s blessing. She wore royal clothing, to match her regal and go ... Read More

Through Our Eyes.. Jaime Bicknell, Brand Manager Wines — Select Brands

Sunday, January 15, 2017    

Deadline met! SO Contributing Editor Jaime Bicknell (BRYAN CUMMINGS)

Wine is a drink best enjoyed with a meal. Pairing the right wine with the right foods can make all the difference, turning an ordinary meal into an experience. Whether it is enjoyed with something sweet or savoury, wine can really bring a meal to life! Pairing wine with food is as much an art as it is a science. Having a glass of wine with a meal is like travelling across the world. Whether it be visiting the Burgundy region of France or experiencing the Tuscan wineries of Italy, the wine and f ...

Through Our Eyes... Erin Mitchell - Marketing Manager Select Brands Limited

Sunday, January 15, 2017    

Contributing Editor Erin Mitchell is satisfied with her final edit. (BRYAN CUMMINGS)

As an expert (self-proclaimed, I might add) of in excess of nine years in the world of spirits, it is somewhat of a goal of mine to try cocktails wherever I go. Through my job in brand management of spirits and wines, I am often guided by a local team interested in impressing their visitors who’ve travelled in for a marketing seminar or brand summit. After years of this, hitting the road for both work and personal trips has become a scavenger hunt to find just the right place to imbibe, st ... Read More
