My Quick Picks for Valentine's Day

1.Style them – The gift of style has come to be appreciated by men and women. Your significant other does not have to be a fashionista or a fashionisto to embrace fashion. I am sure they have their own sense of style whether they fancy fitness wear, artisan jewellery, handbags, spa essentials or accessories. Perhaps they are huge fans of sustainable living and they prefer ethical wear. If this is the case then I strongly suggest you make a fashion stop at Blue Basin Stores at the Cruise Complex in Port of Spain. Another bonus here is their sale of up to 50 % on local designer menswear, women apparel and accessories. Their sale ends on February 13th 2016 so visit them to find out more.



2. Wine them – It’s the season of love and romance is spilled from the glass of wine that runneth over; well at least for the “winos” out there. Now you can enjoy local wines aged to perfection in just five flavours: sorrel, spice, five finger, pommerac and jamun. These wines were aged for 5 years. All the wines are light to medium bodied, crisp and refreshing. They are available at Unwined Wine Bar, Trade Winds Hotel mini mart, On Deck Pub at Trade Winds Hotel, TnT Wine Cellar and of course directly from 11 Degrees North.

3. Chocolate Coat them – At #37 Fitt Street, Woodbrook on Thursday 11th February 2016 Medulla Art Gallery brings you Destination Chocolate’s Pop Up Shop. There you can purchase local artisan chocolate on sale and relish in tasting the “true trini sweet hand”. Some featured products include chocolate gift bags, cocoa products, truffles, cocoa nib brittle and dark chocolates from various local sommeliers in the local chocolate industry. You can also get your tickets for my next suggestion at this Pop Up event.


4. Dine them – Locals love to adventure together into the realms of food. Mariposa Cafe in Lopinot Trinidad is nothing short of being an epic culinary journey. They are hosting their “Cocoa Inno Foosion” tasting event at Mariposa Gardens in Arouca on February 13th 2016. The highlights of the event include savoury and sweet cocoa creations, bean to bar demonstration and  sampling and selling of various cocoa treats. The tickets for this event are $300.00 and are on sale at Medulla Art Gallery tomorrow. So if you or your loved one may be interested in the excitement feel free to check it out.
