African Heritage... All Year Round
This month is celebrated as Black History Month in some quarters and African Heritage Month in others. As we sit contemplating the significance of these celebrations, it is our belief that as a people this celebration though official for a month should be reinforced year round.

Who Else Wants A Nicer Butt?
There is nothing I hate more than putting on a pair of skinny jeans and they fit perfectly in the leg but got space in the back; except when swimsuit bottoms sag. That is a sign that your butt is not a round as it could be.
Many people are on the search for the perfect bum, which is not necessarily defined by size but also the shape and perkiness that adds a certain swagger to the walk whether in jeans, slacks or a bikini.
Like me, your butt may be 70-80 percent on the way to great but could do with that extra lift to fill out your pants just right.

Happy Valentine's Day! It's the most romantic weekend of the year and you may want to look your best. Whether you have a hot dinner date with your man or are club hopping with your single ladies, one of these make up options can work for you!

Coolest Caribbean People Of 2013 - Pt 2
Previously, I started my list of the Coolest Caribbean People of last year with Rihanna, Kerry Washington, Tessanne Chin, Joan Smalls and Melodie Monrose. Now we see who else made the cut, in no particular order:
Life With Livvi Franc
Singer/songwriter Livvi Franc is that chick. She has jet setted to the UK and been a top shot in LA - but strip her of the spotlight and you’ll see a Bajan fuh real. Here the Queen’s College alum shares the story behind 'What Now', insights into the best parts of being a Bajan, her favourite Bajanism and the real way to tell which corncurls are the cheesiest.
Coolest Caribbean People Of 2013 - Pt 1
2013 has been a pretty good year for a Caribbean presence in the pop culture scene. As I’ve done in the past, I thought it would be a great way to start the new year by recognizing the coolest Caribbean people of 2013. Whether they were raised in the Caribbean or are a part of the diaspora, these artistes, celebrities and sports stars have done their countries proud or have been truly intriguing on a global scale.
Here's the first half of the list in no particular order:
Lose Those Pesky Holiday Pounds
Christmas time is often the time of indulgence. We eat every and anything that we get our hands on, whether it is ham, pork, lasagne, black cake, pudding. Combine that with excessive alcohol and no exercise and the holidays often end with us between 5-10 pounds heavier.
Many people never lose those additional pounds but go on to add even more weight with each holiday season. Before they know it they are 30-40 pounds overweight. We don’t want to let the 5-10 pounds we have put on this season balloon into uncontrollable weight gain. We will:
Dealing With A Breakup Over The Holidays
A few years ago the pain of the most serious heartbreak I ever experienced occurred just about nine days before Christmas. I spent a whole day, if not more, ranting and raving in tears because I thought my holiday experience as well as my 30th birthday celebrations would be ruined.
It turned out my tears were in vain because this writer, who can be somewhat of a Scrooge on any given Christmas, had one of the best Christmases ever and a pretty great 30th birthday.
How To Rock Denim On Denim
This fashion season seemed to have been paying homage to many 80s and 90s trends. Denim on denim is one of those fashion crazes that resurfaced onto the scene. Stars like Rihanna, Rita Ora and Nicole Richie have been seen rocking this retro inspired must-have.
