The Island of Jamaica embraces movement. Movement as one people, one heart, one community, and one song. The Jamaican People have an amazing zest for life, and it shines through in everything they do. Jamaica is such a vibrant, colorful place with incredible food, beautiful beaches, and energetic, intoxicating music. After 4 incredible trips, these are a few of my favorite places and things to do on the Rock.
Know for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the water in Jamaica is so clear you don't know where the water stops and the sky starts. My favorite beach in Jamaica hands down is Port Antonio, famously where the Blue Lagoon and the first James Bond film, Dr. No were filmed. I highly recommend that you enjoy the breathtaking views lazily from the comfort of a hammock.
Jamaica is infamous for it's Rum, so it's a must that you try one of the many delicious Rum based Cocktails. My favorite here, The Jamaican Rum Punch- shot pool side at the Spanish Court Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica.
The food in JA is some of the freshest, most flavorful food I have ever eaten, and to this day I crave Scotchies for their authentic Jerk Chicken, Festival and Bammy. Scotchies is my FIRST and LAST stop when I visit JA. The vibe is definitely no-frills. You eat on tin foil with your hands and the atmosphere is extremely rustic. The distinct flavor comes from the secret Jamaican seasoning and grilling the meat over pimento tree wood. And a meal at Scotchies is not complete until you wash it all down with the Official Beer of JA- a Red Stripe.
My clothing style really resonates with the women in JA- as they embrace color and the laid-back beachy lifestyle. I have had the opportunity to showcase my collection in multiple Jamaican Fashion Shows, Trunk Show Events and Red Carpet Premieres, and had the opportunity to meet some really amazing and inspiring people that I am proud to call Friends.
