Get Your Daily Dose of Fruit in 1 Bowl with Dream Bowls Ja!

My Acai & Lychee Dream Bowl ($1200JMD) from Dream Bowls Ja at Kingston Night Market on Tuesday, July 2, 2019.

You can get your daily source of fruits in 1 bowl, your very own Dream bowl! Dream bowls are not only tasty, but healthy. Although you have to be aware of the toppings you choose.

Dream Bowls consist of a frozen base filled with the Acai (a-sigh-ee) berry. Although not sourced locally, they are good for just about everything in terms of its heath properties. Check it out here:


You then have the option to choose 5 toppings that they will layer the base with, resulting in quite an attractive, yet tasty and fulfilling Dream Bowl.

Visit Kingston Night Market today from 6 to 11pm at 8 Hillcrest Avenue to get your Dream Bowl!


***I advise you go early though, the Dream bowls are a hit.***

If not, Deliveries in Kingston are available too!

Kingston Night Market is an event where small businesses showcase their authentic Jamaican products. It is quite fit for a family outing during the week, this and every Tuesday. Check it out!

GW Art is in the Vitamin M December box in the USA!


Kerryanne Croft of the Vitamin M box says trying to fit in is boring, create the change you want to see.

What’s the Vitamin M box?

Based in New Jersey, Kerryanne saw a lack of support and love for Black owned businesses. She wanted to change that, so The Vitamin M Subscription Box was born. M is for Melanin, the dark brown to black pigment occurring in our skin.

Vitamin M isn’t just a subscription box. It is a movement to not only support these substantial businesses, but to help build their communities and share their stories. The Vitamin M box delivers brands in the form of beauty, fashion, books, home and lifestyle produced by people of colour to your doorstep.

Every 3rd month, Kerryanne donates 10% of the proceeds to a charity/non-profit in the Black and Brown community.

Kerry believes we need to continue to highlight these entrepreneurs over businesses that don’t see or respect their shine.

GW Art is a part of the Vitamin M box for December and the boxes are sold out!

The Vitamin M Box for December includes great stocking stuffers for skincare and more.
Kerryanne Croft of the Vitamin M box celebrates for the December box being sold out.

What’s in it from GW Art?

It’s Always Wine o’clock Post-its! Just in time for your New Year’s affirmations.

The Best and Worst Looks from the Oscars Red Carpet!

The stars rocked it on the Red Carpet for the Oscars last night. Both the Ladies and the Men did quite well, but of course there were a few fashion disasters.

White and Nudes were popular for the night.

Gina Rodriguez’s dress and how she wore it is what the Oscars are all about! Plunged neckline, sleek ponytail and a dress that dazzled in the right way for her to present under the lights on the Oscars stage.

Nude gone Wrong – Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Nobody should ever go on the Red Carpet with what looks like Chicken pox!

A few stars wore black, but hardly any of them got it right. Who let St. Vincent out of her bat cave?

Black gone Wrong

Black gone Wrong or Right?

I am on the fence for Taraji P. Henson in Vera Wang. This is a woman I love to see on the Red carpet. This dress on anyone else would make the Black gone wrong list, but Taraji wears the dress, the dress doesn’t wear her.

Colourful Surprises!

I love Viola Davis, but I don’t think she was Pretty in Pink yesterday. I don’t think the Yellow worked out for Greta Gerwig either. But Betty Gabriel, the help from ‘Get out’ rocked her colourful dress. She looked beautiful.

Stars who usually get it right!

Sandra Bullock who was in Louis Vuitton, Lupita Nyong’o who actually looked like an Oscar in Versace and Octavia Spencer are usually a pleasure to see. Well done ladies!

Other Well Dressed Ladies

Let’s not forget the Men! It seems like Common can do no wrong on the Red Carpet. No surprises either for Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman. Martin McDonagh looked sleek in All Black Burberry. Young, Timothée Chalamet was a Best Dressed Nominee for me in All White. Jordan Peele, writer and Director of ‘Get Out’ had a big night. He was the first Black male to win Best Original Screenplay.

Worst Dressed Men 

Of course there were a few fashion disappointments for the men. Adam Rippon was dressed for the wrong kind of party and Darrel Britt-Gibson looked like a Pink Panther.

Worst Dressed Ladies

For the ladies, Whoopi we love you but you looked like a peacock about to take flight. Others looked like they were draped, literally like curtains. Salma Hayak added chandelier. Emma Stone looked as if she was going to a Pajama party and Bianca Blanco looked nice but I don’t think the dress was appropriate for the Oscars as it left little for the imagination.

THE Worst Dressed Lady

Where was Haley Bennett going?! The Oscars are not in Hawaii.

Best Dressed Male

For Suga, Best Dressed Male hands-down went to Armie Hammer in Armani. He rocked his red velvet from head to toe. Bravo!

Best Dressed Ladies

Other than Gina Rodriguez mentioned earlier, these ladies were Best Dressed Nominees! Hard to choose a winner. Jane Fonda was stunning in 44 Francois Premier. Mary J. Blige who acted in Mudbound looked absolutely chic in  Versace. Allison Janney who played the Mother in ‘Get Out’ was the best Lady in Red. Nicole Kidman was fabulous in Armani Privé and definitely the Best in Blue.

See you next year!

Who Stole the Red Carpet at the Oscars 2017?!

Suga found it easy to narrow down the winners for the Men – Andrew Garfield and Mahershala Ali who looked sharp on the Red Carpet! What are these dapper men featured in?

Check out Andrew in Hacksaw Ridge. It’s a good one. I saw Andrew play a War hero without using a gun in the war. Interesting angle. Good movie directed by Mel Gibson.

Mahershali Ali is featured in the controversial, Moonlight.


Quite a few ladies took it to the Red Carpet but the winners for Suga were Karlie Kloss (model) and Viola Davis who won her first Oscar for Fences that also features Denzel Washington.


Special mention goes to the following ladies:


Lastly, we cannot forget two of our favourite couples with the ladies looking lovely post pregnancy – Justin Timberlake with Jessica Biel (L) and John Legend with Chriss Tiegan (R).
