This is an exciting time getting the nursery ready for the arrival of the baby. When deciding on the design and furniture for the room, always think of functionality. After the serious part of the exercise is complete, allow yourself to have fun creating the space. There is no perfect or imperfect design, the only rule other than functionality, is(...)

Imagine that you are going about your daily business, strolling through the city, chatting with a friend, when you are suddenly asked to stop what you are doing and ask yourself the question, “Am I beautiful?” As unlikely as this scenario may sound, this is exactly what happened to hundreds of women, spread out across five of the world’s most bustl(...)

Mahalia Currie-Medina, with whom we sit chatting at the Little Carib Theatre ahead of technical rehearsals on a Wednesday evening and Mahalia Jackson, the namesake of the acclaimed theatrical production making its way on the local circuit, are two women separated by an ocean of water and a sea of change. Yet, Newsday WMN found striking similarities(...)

Sex is not a dirty word says Dr Raj Ramnanan, and women in Trinidad and Tobago are increasingly embracing this truth. In fact, more women are openly having conversations about their sexuality and what pleasures them but there’s one particular conversation which is not happening enough.

There’s something about learning beauty secrets from other cultures that attracts us to it – secrets that are passed down through generations, lovingly shared by mothers to their daughters – especially from countries like India, Pakistan, and even areas of the Middle East. There, beauty rituals are more about understanding the importance of ancient(...)

When it comes to knowledge about supplements, local women tend to be at a disadvantage when the conversation goes beyond vitamins. I say so because I sense there is an underlying notion that regular supplement use is just for women who want to build huge muscles or extreme weight loss candidates.

Wedding season is here and brides, grooms and wedding planners are busy getting things ready for the day on which everything is supposed to be absolutely perfect – from beginning to end.

The very first wedding that I ever planned was my cousin’s wedding. She, a Trini bride was marrying an African American here in Trinidad. Because my cousin is passionate and proud of our African ancestors, the wedding ceremony included several African rituals like jumping the broom and Libations.

East Indian weddings whether Hindu or Muslim, can be as small as 100 guests or as large as thousands of guests. Regardless of faith or size, these weddings, like so many around the world, are steeped in religious, cultural and traditional rites and rituals. So what happens during an authentic arranged East Indian wedding? Historically the Fathers w(...)

Feng Shui is an ancient Japanese custom that has always fascinated and intrigued me. Typically, when you think of adopting Feng Shui practices, you usually think in terms of your home and office space. However, I was delighted to discover that you can adopt Feng Shui practices for your wedding, to ensure a blissful, harmonious wedding day and longe(...)

Michelle Sohan is the “Trini Cake Diva”, in her own words. And while such a title may seem aloof, Sohan is anything but. The young entrepreneur and Managing Director of Bakery Treatz in Lange Park is warm and loquacious. Our initial interview time of an hour and a half stretched into three, with many anecdotes, life lessons and poignant memories re(...)

There’s been no shortage of cloud free blue skies, brilliant sunshine, and hot breezes as we countdown the last few weeks of the 2015 dry season. I can’t think of a better place to celebrate this weather and the joys of island life than at an unexpected seaside venue with pristine white sand. There were cosy cabanas framed by white panels of fabric(...)
