As soon as we stepped in we grabbed up these two leather totes —
this is where your life will reside while you’re out of town. Everything —
but the kitchen sink — you could possibly need can be stashed here...
go ahead, they can handle it. Bear in mind a large scarf can double as a
sarong or a blanket — pick one in a print or pattern.

Jen talks functional parenting

Monday, April 14, 2014    

'We are very divided down the mum-dad line!' The 41-year-old actress and
mother-of-three spoke about duties she takes on and which ones Ben
picks up.

Ben Affleck is about to play the ultimate superhero in the upcoming Superman vs Batman.

The 41-year-old Garner wore a boho-chic outfit last Thursday during her New York City stroll, the morning after she said her husband has already taught their son Samuel, aged two, "about his P" and his two "N's" during her stint on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Bar None: Inside J Wray & Nephew's new corporate office

Sunday, April 13, 2014    

The Bar — J Wray &
Nephew has introduced a
stylish new bar to the
Kingston scene, featuring
soaring ceilings, dramatic
lighting and a self-aware
use of scale throughout.
Here, J Wray & Nephew
executive Christine Wood
coordinates her team for the
official opening of the facility.

It makes perfect sense that the name behind one of the world's great rums would have a bar in its new corporate office. But this is no ordinary bar. And the bar is not where this story ends. In fact, the story began more than 180 years ago when John Wray opened the Shakespeare Tavern beside the Ward Theatre. That business evolved into one of the Caribbean's largest exporters-J Wray & Nephew Limited. Following several months of reorganization, propelled by the acquisition of its parent comp ... Read More

Knocking On Wood

SO spots an exquisite necklace, made of wood to boot, at Expo Jamaica 2014. It's created by the young, vivacious Lacey-Ann Bartley of Bartley's All In Wood. There's reason to learn more...lots more. My fascination with wood commenced... from as far back as I can remember. I grew up in my father's woodwork shop, where furniture 'off cuts', sawdust and tools were my toys. I spent all my free time with my dad and his staff learning the trade. Plus, I really love the smell of sawdust. I design w ... Read More

With a simple table-switch, the singer, former beauty queen and one of Bob Marley's great loves, pauses to gab over virgin cocktails. What are you sipping? Iced tea. What kind of day are you having?
