  • A young force in the local traditional art form

    A career in teaching might pay the bills for Amrika Mutroo, however, singing ignites that fire in her. “Singing is a passion, not a job. I have to rely on teaching to pay my bills.” Earlier talks with one of her idols, Denyse Plummer, further impacted on her desire though. Read More »

  • What up J Dawg?

    “What up J Dawg?” That was the response I got when my four-year-old appeared in front of me after hearing her name being called. Of course I was rendered speechless and could not stop blinking. When I enquired as to what that meant I was informed “that’s how rappers talk mummy!” and of course she has decided to become a rapper when she grows up. Read More »

  • RAVI B

    The title, ‘The King of the Mohawk’ may seem like a comical one with which to align the former chutney soca monarch, Ravi B. In 2010, the evenly accomplished music director/producer/arranger, Read More »

  • Dr Ayesha Prout

    FORENSIC Psychology or at least Hollywood’s version of it is one of those key, must-have ingredients added to television crime series like Criminal Minds, CSI and Law and Order: SVU to amp up the drama for the benefit of their viewers. And to a large extent, it has worked. Week after week, fans of these shows tune in and put themselves in the place of the forensic psychologist as they try to figure out how the mind of a criminal works while trying to solve the crime.

  • I’m leaving

    It’s one of the saddest e-mails I’ve received. She was not looking for advice, she just wanted to share what has tormented her for 21 years of marriage—she has a great husband but she’s leaving him because she does not love him. She doubts whether she ever did love him. She believes she was a victim of her own expectations—be married and start a family. She wonders if she was also a victim of circumstance. At the time of his proposal, she was not seeing anyone and she had become used to him. Her wedding day was just a routine but she tried to be happy and tried to enjoy the moment and the years that would subsequently follow. Read More »

  • 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.
