In my opinion there are very few artists to date that create music that’s fitting across all cultures, unite people and that you can listen to with your children around. One of Little Model A‘s favorite books is actually “One Love,” I’ve been reading the book to him since he was 3 months old and he can read it by himself now at 2. Today we wish Nesta Robert Marley a very Happy Birthday! Here are some beautiful art pieces from my fellow Etsians
Coming from a 100% Jamaican household, we grew up hearing the songs of Bob Marley. A man that touched so many people across cultures through his music, now that’s “SWAG” as the “youngsters” call it now! Here are some awesome Etsy Bob Marley artwork and a clip of one of my favorite songs by Bob.
Who said Valentine’s Day isn’t for guys too. Check out my Etsy Treasury on ideas for HIM. Give him a gift he’ll remember…
The Edge for Success
This is definitely a great video with a plethora of information from Billionaires. It has always been said that wealthy people share common traits. Whether or not you want to be a billionaire, some of this advice is invaluable to those who want to succeed at what they do and still love it.
Determination-Be determined to learn more, hone your craft. Learn to create opportunity for yourself even when everyone else tells you ‘No.’
Decisions-All the decisions we make in life (good and bad) shape our outcomes. Make wise decisions and when you make mistakes, learn from them.
Giving-Give, give, give. This was a strong point for both Buffet and Jigga. Don’t say you don’t have it, you can give back in many ways. Give monetarily, but also give your time and service.
Love What You Do- You have to absolutely love what you do. Here’s the test, do you love it enough that you would do it for free?
One of my favorite designers the “Slovak Jamaican” Lubica Slovak has teamed up with one of my favorite singers, Tami Chynn and created the most edgy and girly apparel collection ever. Bubbling with excitement, I personally cannot wait until the collection is released. Unveiling the collection on April 7th, Lubica’s designs are definitely must “haves” for the summer.

It’s hard to say exactly where my inspiration comes from since it varies from day to day. Sometimes it may be how I’m feeling at that particular point or it can be something that I saw or a certain song that I listened to. Things that I find very inspiring and that have helped me to create certain jewelry pieces have been the ocean, beach and tropics. It may be that I haven’t had a vacation in a long while, so many pieces that I’ve created are either tropic inspired or relates to a sandy beach somehow. What helps drive different inspiration for me is constantly seeking new things and never settling for just what’s in front of me. Exposure to different people, music, culture and art forms can always help inspire one. It’s a way of constantly reinventing yourself and going beyond your limits.
