Finding Self-love

We all know that Valentine’s day is a couple days away, which is usually associated with showing your love.  It’s a competition to show how much you love someone and show your friends/family you’re in a relationship, no matter how toxic it may be.

Menu for romance

February, the month of love and for us parents can sometimes just be another day at the office. Finding time for yourself is hard enough, let alone finding time to spend with your partner. (These babies can really steal our groove). Nevertheless, we have to put in the work. Relationships require constant effort,but also some spice and all things nice- if you know what I mean?! Everyone has their own views on Valentine’sContinue reading “Menu for romance”

WORKING TOWARD FINANCIAL FREEDOM

From a young age, when it came to finances, my dad taught me the importance of being good with money. His two favourite lines were and still are “save up yuh money” and “yuh carn spen wah yuh nuh have” (don’t try and Google translate, its Jamaica Patois). He was adamant on saving and notContinue reading “WORKING TOWARD FINANCIAL FREEDOM”
