Describe your ideal weekend

I love a change of environment. So an ideal weekend for me is a relaxing weekend getaway with hubby (Evon) and daughter (Naima-Kourtnae). We like to visit different local places so the destination can be anywhere really , the North or South coast....Once there’s a beach, a villa/hotel, food and my family - I am GREAT! I think I almost enjoy the drive through the country side as much as I love the destination.

How do you normally spend your weekends?

I am such a homebody. You will rarely find me out partying or lyming for that matter. Because I work a 9-5 at the Gleaner during the week, it’s important for me to get in my mommy time with my daughter. So, I am usually at home loafing with Nai or visiting my grandma, attending church or Devon House.

What is your “must have” drink on weekends? I MUST HAVE A COLD PEPSI!

Have you ever travelled? If yes, in which country did you have the best experience and what did you do?

Which local restaurant have you labelled as your favourite and why?

My friends and family would all shout KFC!!! But if I had to label a restaurant as my favourite it would probably be Cuddyz. It’s central, it’s affordable, Mama Walsh’s Stew Peas is “da bomb” and most importantly it’s a SPORTS BAR. The way to my heart is through SPORTS on BIG SCREEN TVs.

I am a jetsetter for sure! I absolutely LOVE LOVE travelling and it’s probably the one thing that I do consistently. That’s a hard one. It’s hard to pick between Hawaii and South Africa. Hawaii was just the perfect location, romantic getaway for my first year anniversary. What stands out is that my husband and I visited a gun shop and we were able to do target practice with some VERY powerful guns. Shhh… I was a better shot too and I saved my target as proof LOL. South Africa was GORGEOUS. What stands out is that we went on a Safari, drove along side lions and although one of the rules was “Don’t wind down your windows”, I did to get a great pic!

Are you more of a cook, or a takeout junkie? I can cook but hate to. Cooking is too much of a production, only if hubby insists. I am a takeout junkie whether it’s KFC or Chinese.

BIN26 Wine Bar is quickly becoming the most ideal goto spot to kick back and enjoy a tall glass of wine, paired excellently with cheeses and fruits. Located within the courtyard of Devon House, BIN26 offers approximately 300 international wines, as well as comfortable indoor and outdoor seating basked in the mellow ambiance of the Devon courtyard.



The chic, upscale wine bar gets its name from a creative metaphor stemming from the theoretical labeling of cellar locations - ‘BIN’ followed by a number - which denotes the physical location of a wine bottle stored in a wine cellar. This is combined with it’s location at 26 Hope Road. Currently, BIN26 hosts Happy Hour every Friday from 5pm to 7pm, and a post-dinner Happy Hour on Sundays at 4pm until 10pm. Enjoy a tranquil night of friends, relaxation and wine.
