underwater wonder

The winners of the 2019 Original Dive Photo of the Year highlight both underwater photographic excellence and the incredible beauty of the sub-aquatic world.

girl power!

How did you first get into DJ-ing? I started aged 15 with a group of school friends. We started to DJ for small birthday parties and limes, and I realised I had a great liking for it. How do you create your mixes? Before I conceive any mix, I first think about what kind of music I would like to listen to, and marry that with what people want to hear. There’s no limit to the type of music or artist I put in my mixes. Every mix is special and has a different theme and vibe. Who are some of your favourite DJs? DJ Vashtie, DJ Private Ryan, Lord Hype, Nuphoric, Custodian International, Kienon Die Hard, Shot Master J, DJ Puffy, Jus Jay, Kevin Crown, DJ Young Chow – just to name a few. What’s…

naturally radiant

Sheba Augustine is a mother, nature lover, holistic wellness enthusiast and inspiring entrepreneur. “I started OMI on a whim after making little self-care boxes as Christmas gifts for some mom friends. They contained teas, eye pillows, candles and little skincare products I whipped up in my kitchen using natural ingredients found in Grenada.” OMI launched in May 2018.

And the name? “OMI is an acronym for Only Mother Earth’s Ingredients. It’s also a homage to my maternal grandmother – I called her Omi, which means granny in German. We would often go on nature walks – that’s where my love of nature started.” * AVAILABLE AT HOUSE OF CHOCOLATE (YOUNG STREET, ST…
