#LifeinLeggings | Part 1



It's shocking and embarrassing to know that in 2017, women and children are still not given the same level of respect and rights as men.
It's also shocking to think that for many of us in the Caribbean, sexual harassment, disrespect because of our gender and the threat of violence is a daily occurrence.

Magical Mexico


Our first trip for 2017 was nothing short of magical: Mexico is incredible!

From the delicious food, to the beautiful weather, historical sights and natural beauty to the friendly people, we were unexpectedly blown away in a short space of time.

Lucky Number Seven


Seven is one of my lucky numbers, so I'm working on creating as much as possible this year. 2017 has started off on a great note for me personally, so I want to transfer some of that positive energy to various projects and passions throughout the year.

Opening Gala at the Barbados Independent Film Festival


The inaugural Barbados Independent Film Festival kicked off at the new Walled Garden Theatre at the Barbados Museum & Historical Society last night with the screening of Stephen Lang's film "Beyond Glory." If the Opening Gala was any indication of what's to come at the BIFF, we're in for quite the treat this week.

Barbados Local Gift Guide 2016


Since moving back to Barbados a few years ago and starting my own businesses, I've become more aware of local products and supporting local businesses.


Supporting Local is not only very practical in a small island where Amazon Prime seems like a distant dream but it has quite a profound ripple effect. In Barbados we tend to have this perception that something from 'overseas' is better than something local, but these brands below are proving that that is definitely not the case.

Donating Blood in Barbados


I'm embarrassed to say that I donated blood for the first two weeks ago. 

I've had blood work done before and though I felt pretty nauseous when I watched the blood being extracted, but I can't really use a fear of needles or the sight of blood as an excuse for not donating.

Donating blood is always something I've felt that I 'should' do, but never really got around to it.

It was only recently when someone near and dear to me needed blood that I finally looked into donating blood. This seems to be a trend in Barbados, and it's just not good enough. I'm writing this blog post in a bid to encourage more people to donate blood on a consistent basis.

WINC Acceleration Programme

At the beginning of this year, I entered into WINC Acceleration Program - new peer mentorship-based initiative to support high-potential women entrepreneurs in the Caribbean.

The goal of the eight-month intensive Acceleration Program was to provide participants with a wide range of support services aimed at improving competitiveness and boosting our growth. This included peer-learning, personal development, one-to-one mentoring/coaching, technical workshops, and motivational sessions by entrepreneur role models.



The new initiative was part of the Entrepreneurship Program for Innovation in the Program in the Caribbean (EPIC), funded by the Government of Canada and implemented by the World Bank Group and its infoDev program for entrepreneurship. It was delivered by certified facilitators in 12 Caribbean countries: Antigua & Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts & Nevis, Suriname, and Trinidad & Tobago.

Dive with my Dad

A few weeks ago my Dad and I went diving together off of the South coast of Barbados.
My Dad recently moved back to Barbados from Brazil and he was itching to get in the water as often as possible to make up for lost time. We checked out a bar between 60 - 80ft.
We were both there to shoot - my Dad was hunting lionfish with his speargun, while I was having fun shooting with my GoPro...

10 Best Coffee & WiFi Spots in Barbados


Barbados is relatively new to the coffee/cafe scene, and has only been serving specialty coffees for a few very short years. Fortunately though, thanks to a constant flow of expats and visitors from around the world and the perseverance of some avid coffee enthusiasts, Barbados is now well on it’s way to providing stellar coffee to the island masses. This list will give you an insight into the islands’ expanding coffee scene and provide with some of the best spots to get your caffeine & WiFi fix (because the two tend to go hand in hand...) in Barbados. This list is also quite useful for groups and individuals who need free meeting locations.
