Do you think it’s delusional to believe that your thoughts encapsulate or are responsible for your entire wellbeing?
Growing up with divorced parents and being close friends with the children of other divorced couples, I witnessed first-hand both the negative and positive effects divorce can have on people. I’ve seen people move on beautifully and blossom into better versions of themselves and also on the flip side, others lose themselves in the sadness of the situation. This is really a topic that I hold dear to my heart because of the way divorce affects families and truly holds the power to make or break anyone in its path. The good news is, there are steps that can help with the transition and make it a little easier to drift in a more enlightened and positive mindset.
It is quite incontestable, my philosophy on Caribbean fashion. I am exhilarated by the boundaries being pushed by our imagers and stylists. No longer are we simply copying what we see in international magazines. We are creating our style templates, indeed, influenced by global trends, but not limited to replicating what is deemed the in-thing by metropolitan cognoscenti.
Tattooing is an indigenous art form that has been practiced across the globe since the very early days of mankind. One day in 2017, despite not really knowing each other, Gesiye Souza-Okpofabri and Maya Cross-Lovelace went to talk to Obasi Springer about their (personal) tattoo ideas and left as tattoo apprentices. Before that day, the two had never spent time together. Although they attended Bishop Anstey High School at the same time for five years, they somehow never even met. However, as fate would have it, they met when they did, to go on this creative journey together.
We’ve talked before about how style affects your mood, but did you know it can actually have a positive (or negative) impact on your self-esteem and levels of confidence? Self-esteem is defined as “your overall sense of self-worth”, or in general how you feel about yourself. Lots of things contribute (to self-esteem), but did you know that your personal style has a part to play?
Often described as free spirited, loving and eclectic, Renata Shenice Marie Richards is a 24-year-old makeup artist from Arima. Rentata told the WE Mag that her love for makeup started when she was a child after seeing her aunt applying makeup for work, events and even her part-time job as a princess character. Renata explained that she has always been enthralled by the transformation that makeup would allow. She has also been fortunate to have the constant support from her parents who facilitated her passion for makeup. Actually, it was her dear mother who bought her first makeup kit. She is proud to admit that even to this day she still has her first ever silver makeup brush, one that she considers an heirloom.
Caring for a parent is indeed an honour and a very rare opportunity for many. However, trying to balance the household, build my company, keep the husband happy and care for an ageing mother are easier said than done. It often becomes quite a challenge to perform all the tasks simultaneously. Something always has to give or be sacrificed and most times it is my wants and needs. Everything else comes first, especially the needs of my mother. Finding the right balance in my life is indeed a great challenge.

It isn’t unusual to occasionally want to skip a workout but if you are the kind who generally lives, breathes and sleeps the gym life, then all of a sudden become disinterested, you may be very guilty of overexerting yourself. So instead of going to the gym and possibly risking injury by performing incorrect range of motion/form, my advice is to take a week off from the gym. You have absolutely nothing to lose and many benefits.
