Fashion & Jewelry

Over the past three months I have been learning more about jewelry from The Royal Shop. They carry an impressive range of fine jewelry and timepieces and every time I visit their Broad Street location I find another item to add to my wish list. I am currently crushing on their "My World" bracelets by Rebecca. They first came across my radar while I was doing my Christmas Gift Picks and have been on my mind since. In my opinion these stackable bracelets are a modern take on charm bracelets and are very on trend. There are a variety of options available and I love that you can customise them to fit your taste. Valentines Day is approaching and I think they are the perfect gift - thoughtful and fashionable at the same time. 

The first step is to choose your leather bracelet. They are available in a variety of colours and in single, double and triple strands. The fun part starts after when you can choose from an assortment of charms. The charms are all made in Italy  and plated over bronze - white, black, rose and gold. The charms range from initials to crosses to semi precious stones and there is truly something for everyone to love.

The Crane Barbados - One of the best beaches in the world!

I love my island and I was incredibly proud to see The Crane Beach nominated by USA Today as one of the top beaches in the world. I visited The Crane hotel a few weeks ago and as I sat at L'Azure Restaurant overlooking the beach I was mesmerised by it's beauty. I often take my beautiful island for granted and I was glad that I took the time to reflect and truly appreciate my surroundings. The Crane Beach is located on the southeastern side of Barbados and features dramatic natural scenery and a stunning sea of blues.

One Kings Lane Living Room Update

Interiors are my first love and I am always on the lookout for beautiful spaces. My aesthetic varies but as mentioned in a previous post I have recently been drawn to simplicity. This space has lots of interesting elements but the choice of furniture, fabric and accessories make it very laid back and simple. This space is a collaboration with One Kings Lane and Erica Chan Coffman of Honestlly WTF. Erica had a common problem: She couldn’t decide how to set up this all-important room, so One Kings Lane style team got to work. See the before and after and shop the look on One Kings Lane.

Fashion and Denim

Denim jeans are one of my wardrobe staples. They are incredibly versatile and depending on the styling can be dressed up or down. I tend to mix mine with simple black or white t and leather sandals for everyday or throw on a pair of heels and a blazer if I have a meeting to attend.( See my post on how to dress up your jeans for work here). While browsing the internet for denim inspiration I came across four different looks from some fab fashion blogs. While I am partial to the simplicity of the first two they are all looks I would wear and have sparked a Shopstyle shopping spree!

New Year - Time to DAZZLE!

I am beyond excited to share with you my first ever magazine cover! When Dazzle editor, Ryan Wills called me I thought he was calling to ask me to write for his magazine. I was beyond shocked when he explained that they were interested in doing a piece on me. I was sure they had made a mistake but at the same time I was very excited and incredibly flattered that they thought I was worthy of their pages. DAZZLE is a bi monthly publication which features young professionals, entrepreneurs, and established businesses. See more of DAZZLE on their Facebook page, view the issue online and stay tuned for the print copy coming soon !

I was so humbled to be featured on the cover. Previous covers have included the incredibly inspiring and successful Matthew "Fewwture" of Dream Real Projects along with equally impressive Amanda Reifer of "Fantasy" the band.
