‘RSS Natural Delites’ for your Coconut Drops!

20190109_020420
Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga with Ronetta Crooks-Allen of RSS Natural Delites.

Mrs. Ronetta Crooks-Allen of RSS Natural Delites doesn’t only make Coconut Drops, she makes flavoured Coconut Drops. Sunflower seeds, Sesame seeds and more are amongst the flavours, but the Coconut Drops with Cranberries are my favourite.

Ronetta was unfortunately unable to be a Suga artisan last year at Suga Lifestyle’s Christmas Connection, however she was still generous enough to offer a package of her sweet, natural delights as a giveaway for the show.

Everton Cummings was the happy recipient of the RSS Natural Delites variety pack at Suga Lifestyle’s Christmas Connection on Saturday, December 15, 2018.

Suga got some timely feedback that he hardly even got to taste much of the Coconut Drops, because they vanished so quickly at his household.

These flavoured Coconut Drops are truly special. They are not too sweet or overpowered by their added flavours. The essence of coconut is still highlighted and quite delightful to the palate as the name suggests.

Order Coconut Drops from Ronetta today, she delivers!

Buy Jamaican, Build Jamaica.

Clothing Drive this January in Kingston!

20190107_141945

The Jamaica Cosmetic Dental Society (JCDS) is conducting a clothing drive for charity this January!

They invite you to donate old, lightly worn or new clothing for a worthy cause. As we exit the holiday season most of us may have replaced items in our wardrobe and would like to give them away.

JCDS has designated their office as a collection point for any items of clothing you would like to donate. At the end of the month, they will deliver the items to a charitable organisation hand- picked by their team.

Kudos to JCDS for knowing the importance of giving back and serving their community outside of providing Dental Services.

Please Donate!

Drop off location: Suite #28 Ardenne Emirates, 7-9 Ardenne Road. Kingston 10.

Value for $: ★★★★☆

Suga’s Breakdown:

Tamarind Continental, Saffron and Tamarind Indian all fall under the same umbrella, however Tamarind Continental’s menu offers cuisines other than Indian as its name suggests.

If you are dining at Tamarind Indian,  you have the luxury of ordering from Tamarand Continental that is 2 doors away and vice versa. I wanted a healthy dish with a light sauce, so I ordered from the Tamarand Continental menu, while my husband ordered from the Tamarind Indian menu.

The Staff were courteous and attentive. Service was within reasonable time and we enjoyed our meals. I had the Cilantro lime Chicken, which was quite tasty.

I was pleased to see that Tamarind Cuisine continues to serve dinner with a high standard and I look forward to returning. Tamarind cuisine is suited for family outings, dinner dates and business meetings. #SugaEndorsed

Merry Christmas from Suga Lifestyle!

PhotoGrid_1545688731506

Suga would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for the season! 

It has been a great year for Suga Lifestyle and I have to tell you all a Big Thank You for staying tuned to all the categories that build the Suga Lifestyle brand; GW Art, Charities, Restaurant Reviews and Ratings, Brand Jamaica, Sports, Health and Fitness and more.

I am also very proud to report that the 1st staging of my Trade show, Suga Lifestyle’s Christmas Connection held at The Liguanea Club on Saturday, December 15th was a success. The event involved artisans hand-picked by me to offer their unique, handcrafted, handmade, Jamaican items to the public.

TCP’s Jamaican greeting cards were also in the building as a convenience for shoppers to get cards to go with their gifts.

With Suga Lifestyle’s Christmas Connection, there was no need to shop for gifts online. The event gave sponsors and guests the opportunity to support Brand Jamaica, specifically entrepreneurs who operate within the
Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) sector. Through their support, Jamaican made products and the
island’s creative industries, were highlighted. Vendor industries included; food, graphic art, woodcraft, ceramics, fashion, agro-processing and personal care. My Suga Artisans were hand-picked to inspire innovation, and to provide a platform for business growth.

For those who missed out on Suga’s Winter Wonderland or for Suga Bears and Suga Daddies who would like to relive the moment, here are some highlights from the day.

Guests entering the venue were greeted by some of the Sponsors, Gustazos, Sagicor Bank and Jablum. Gustazos along with Suga Lifestyle offered some Selfie photo fun, while Jablum treated guests to freshly brewed, hot Coffee and Sagicor Bank offered Scones from Cannonball Cafe to complement the Coffee.
