Editor's Note

She hits the runway and simply stuns you. All eyes are riveted on her. But then that’s Jamaican model Jeneil Williams she is in all respects quite the stunner. Read more »

  • The phenomenal Jeneil Williams

    THERE comes a time in a model’s life when her career plateaus, when the Ad campaigns and the jobs don’t come as fast and furious as they once did, when her look which was considered ‘in’ is now ‘out’, when she’s not as in demand as the new ‘it’ girl on the scene. And yet, if you have been charting the career of international model Jeneil Williams and the major success she’s enjoyed over the years as much as we at Woman have, you’d realise that this long-legged Jamaican stunner has not only remained relevant in the fast-paced and ever changing fashion industry but in the eight years she’s been modelling, Williams has achieved milestone after milestone and keeps rising.

  • Journey From King To Queen

    A few months ago Jevon Lola King won the title of Miss Trinidad & Tobago/ Universe 2014, an accolade many young women have aspired to achieve. King definitely wasn’t the cookie-cutter pageant queen type. However pageants were something that always interested her despite her very playful and boyish days. No one expected her to go on to become our representative at the Miss Universe pageant, but that she did. Read More »

  • ‘But I have to go to football’

    Dear Readers: What did you say? Your 19-year-old son wants to become a father? When you approached me at a certain mall over Christmas, I was dumbfounded at such an unusual and also rather ridiculous desire by such a young man. After talking to you for a while — and seeing that you were so (rightly) troubled because you also did not approve of the 18-year-old girl he was “mad” about — I readily agreed to try to find the column I wrote a few years ago when I interviewed a very young man about parenthood. Well, here it is including some of his words that I had left out before. I do hope this may scare your son just a little! Read More »

  • Sex is not always the best driver

    When you are making decisions, sex is not always the best reason for doing so. Unfortunately, many decisions are sex-based. And it turns out that many of these sex-based decisions are foolish. Those who have slept their way to the top of the corporate ladder would disagree with me as would many in the entertainment industry who did likewise. Read More »

  • CONFESSIONS OF A CARNIVAL DIVA

    It was finally here…My favourite time of the year — Carnival. After all it was the only time of the year when I “came out”. I don’t hit the nightclubs during the year; actually I am usually under low, in hibernation, until January! And so habitually, annually, I would plan strategically for the event I looked forward to. I did my exercise; in fact I lived in the gym from November to February careful not to over-consume Christmas treats, drinking lots of water and dropping soft drink and excessive carbs. This year was no different. Read More »

  • ‘A Principal of Fitness’:

    This week as we continue to explore fitness-for-life, I am pleased to introduce to you Mrs Anna Pounder. She is the Principal of St Joseph’s Convent in Port of Spain, a wife and mother of three children and just months shy of 50. This month she celebrates ten years being healed of cervical cancer. She thanks God every day for the fact that she became aware of the disease in its early stage — stage 1B — and therefore was able to pursue the necessary treatment. She also strongly believes that her fitness lifestyle played a major role in her journey of healing and she marvelled at the way in which her body was able to bounce back from the trauma of surgery and chemotherapy along the way.

  • 12 Mascara TRICKS for flirty lashes

    Putting on mascara isn’t exactly rocket science: remove wand from tube, swipe, swipe again, look appraisingly in mirror, nod at self, and put wand back in tube. Seems simple—is simple.

We’ve watched pros do this oh-so-basic beauty move a hundred times, and where we get a slightly chopped-up fringe, they create mile-long lashes that would make Kim Kardashian cry. Read More »

  • ‘Are Abs Made in the Kitchen?’

    This week, in the words of Fay-Ann Lyons, I am seeking to “raze” the tempo a bit and to turn the spotlight on nutrition for the benefit especially of all those thousands of ‘training masqueraders’ at home, in the parks or in the gyms. To be frank, I may be an article late with this popular topic as I believe that, not only at Carnival time, but as a general fitness for life guide, you should most definitely include nutrition during any of the stages of behaviour change that you are embarking upon, whether contemplating, preparing or in the action stages of making fitness a lifestyle.

  • Bashing men as an excuse

    It’s easier to point fingers at men than to point to yourself for relationship failures. However, in so doing, make sure you aren’t conveniently taking the easy way out.
