I missed Odyssey by Yendi’s Launch late last year. However, I woke up and saw a promo for a Pop-Up first thing in my Social media feed one morning a few weeks ago. I was inspired and instantly decided I was going to support it. Reconnecting with my childhood friend, Yendi was a bonus.
At the Pop-Up shop, I was greeted warmly by Yendi and introduced to her products and of course, her young Odyssey model and daughter, Israel.
Strong, positive, uplifting, faith-based messages were illustrated on her products. Some of the most popular ones were, ‘I can do all things – Philippians 4:13’, ‘Power, Love, Sound Mind – 2 Timothy 1:7’, ‘Clothed in Strength and Dignity’ and ‘Pray More’.
Yendi hand pours her Candles, which are available in two sizes and various delightful scents. There was Coconut Lime, Cinnamon Vanilla, White Tea, Beach Linen, Clean Cotton, Black Raspberry Vanilla and more. I went home with the Green Tea Lemon Grass candle.
Tank tops, T-shirts and Baby Ts for the ladies are now in colours other than black and white. I picked up the olive, ‘I can do all things’ tank.
Mugs, Notebooks, Onesies for kids, T-shirts for Men and Women were also available.
I couldn’t leave with everything, but I have my eyes on so much more, especially the stationery.
Sweatshirts, Slippers, Leggings and many other items are now available as well.
The Odyssey line of products were inspired by Yendi’s spiritual journey and connection with God, fueling her to keep moving forward and providing her with hope after facing various uncertainties.
By supporting Yendi’s Odyssey, she states that she prays the items will serve as a reminder to never give up, trust the journey, and surrender all to God.
Odyssey by Yendi is now available online and you can follow it on Instagram or stay tuned to Suga Lifestyle to find out when the next Pop-up shop will be!
TGIF! We have 1 week to go until Restaurant Week Jamaica (RW) starts next Friday, November 11 and runs through to Saturday, November 19th.
The Epicurean Category ($4310JMD excluding Bar, GCT, Service Charge) has been a drag with the same Restaurants every year so Suga is excited to make the new addition, L’Escargot in Ocho Rios the top pick overall for Epicurean this year.
L’Escargot has been on my ‘Places to Go’ list for some time and their menu looks inviting. Their signature Escargots sautéed in garlic butter, herbs and white wine is highly anticipated for the Appetizer. I am wondering how it will compare to the famous, award winning Toscanini Italian Restaurant that is also in Ocho Rios. There are choices of Smoked Blue Marlin or Sautéed Sea Scallops as well.
Lamb Chops, Fillet Mignon and Grilled Giant Prawns are the salivating Entrée choices.
Créme brulee, Créme caramel and Chocolate mousse are the choices for Dessert.
Do you have your passport Suga Bears? Ochi here I come!
For those who are doubling up or can’t make it to Ocho Rios for RW, my top pick for Kingston is Rojo Restaurant at the Spanish Court Hotel, which strives to give consistently great service and serve consistently good quality food compared to Terra Nova. Terra Nova usually lives up to their polished reputation for Restaurant Week but Rojo’s menu is Suga’s preferred choice.
Fling Back Friday (#fbf) to RW 2013 at Rojo Restaurant
Marguerites Seafood by the Sea, which was my choice last year, is my top pick this year for Montego Bay. The menus from Sugar Mill and Restaurant at Round Hill haven’t grabbed me. I love that Marguerites revised their RW menu. The Pepper Steak Moderne accompanied by a Caribbean risotto topped with oxtail ragout should be a treat. I was thoroughly impressed by my visit last year, which was perfection.
#fbf RW 2015 at Marguerites!
