Odyssey by Yendi!

Yendi Phillips with her daughter, Israel at her Odyssey Pop-Up Shop at The Spanish Court Hotel on Sunday, July 22, 2018.

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!

West Indies Women Beat Australia in the World Cup T20 Final!

The West Indies Women dancing and singing, ‘Champion, Champion….’

The West Indies Women have done it! They have won their first ICC World T20 final, beating the Defending Champs for 3 years, the Australians by 8 wickets.


The opening women stuck it out for the majority of their innings. 18 year old, Hayley Matthews won Woman of the Match with 66 runs and Captain Stafanie Taylor won Player of the Tournament with 246 runs at an average of 41. Today she made 59 runs.


It was a spectacular final. The Australian bowlers failed to find much dot balls (deliveries bowled without any runs scored off it, so called because they are recorded in the score book with a single dot) and most importantly, in the last over, they missed a crucial opportunity for a run out right by the wicket, giving the West Indies women the 2 runs they needed to win.


The West Indies men were there to show their support and the Captain for the men, Darren Sammy also sent messages of encouragement before the match and with various tweets.

Well done ladies, now it’s time for the men versus England!
