We know that Spring is here when pairs of Longtails can be seen in aerial courtship, touching the tips of their feathers together in paired flight. It's breeding season in Bermuda and they will be nesting from April until August in holes and crevices of Bermuda's limestone coastal cliffs and islands. We're loving this Fierce Longtail Pendant from Davidrose, a perfect gift for someone special or don't be afraid to spoil yourself. This piece is available in 14k yellow gold, sterling silver and rose gold (featured above). Known for their unique collections inspired by Bermuda’s seas, skies and stories, David and Rose offer spectacular unique gift ideas, custom creations, enchanting engagement & wedding collections and more. We love their original studio in St. George’s with breathtaking harbour views that match their Ocean Collection. You can also find them on Front Street in Hamilton.

We are loving Wanneeka Saunders Glam Pop!!! It’s a perfect snack for Sping because its light and filling, low calorie and there are a few flavours to choose from. I mean come on – everyone loves a little popcorn. It’s great for the kids too. If you can imagine, she starts her day at 5:30am popping corn and finishes late afternoon, making 700+ bags a day. The demand is big especially at the grocery stores and gas stations across the island! What started as a casual way to make a few dollars has turned into a successfully demanding business! Glam pop is made with 100% real flavours and we’re loving the new packaging too!! The next time your out and feeling snacky, pull into a gas station or grocery store and NAB some Glam Pop! Follow Glam Pop on Instagram to stay on top of new flavours, pop up locations and other fun things happening with the brand.
