One of my favorite splurges and items in the world are great candles. I burn candles everyday, take them with me when I travel. Fragrant and comforting – they are a plus to ant home or environment. The theme for my new album “PARADISE” really lends itself to this extension of me that I’m excited to share with you. The scents are my favorites and I’m sure you’ll love and enjoy as much as I do.

This limited edition candle set ‘PARADISE’ and ‘SANCTUARY’ comes elegantly packaged in classic white box with black logo lettering and image on opposite side of box (autographed upon special request). The ‘PARADISE’ candle is in the citrus family of scents; a delicate lemon verbena with subtle vanilla notes taking you away from the stress of everyday life, very spa like. The ‘SANCTUARY’ candle is a sexy calming blend of mesquite wood, neroli and oak moss. You will truly leave the world behind with the ‘SANCTUARY’ candle. The fragrant soy wax candles are made with the highest quality of soy blend wax with cotton wicks formulated to fill up a room, burn clean and last a long time. Burn time approx. 50 hours for each.

Jody Watley Talks Music and Business on New Venture Who’s That Lady

 

JodyWatleyInstagramParadise

I appreciate the fact that this new website is focused on positivity and interviews; not gossip on women in music, television and film. They’ve been incredibly supportive of “PARADISE” on Twitter and other social media; I wanted to show my support to Belinda James and the Who’s That Lady Entertainment team.  If you’re tired of gossip based media and trust me, I understand the commerce and need for a bit of entertainment and gossip here and there; however there should also be room for other mediums such as this – support these alternatives.

Jody Watley. My Week. Life and Paradise

Scenes from the hospital with my Mom. The beautiful ladies posing with me lower right and left were huge fans of mine and nearly in tears to meet me and let me know who much I meant to them.

Scenes from the hospital with my Mom. The beautiful ladies posing with me lower right and left were huge fans of mine and nearly in tears to meet me and let me know who much I meant to them.

“Life is what happens, while you’re busy making other plans.”

I’ve spent this week more focused on being present and available for my Mom who had surgery (as I shared on Facebook/JodyWatleyOfficial).

Throughout this experience it’s a reminder of course of the things that matter in life such as good health and family to be there in time of need. I’ve met some really nice people, staff and those in support of their loved ones who were having surgery. One lady had a son having brain surgery due to cancer. She has 44 grandchildren and most of them were there to support, which was a beautiful thing to see. I choked up looking at the parents comforting their little ones, who were scheduled or had had surgery. It made me reflect of being so grateful that neither my daughter or son had ever experienced any major medical issues. I can’t imagine how difficult that must be. Tears came to my eyes as one Mom caressed her son’s hair who appeared to be no older than 3, as he waited for his surgery. Being who I am, and being really low key – it was also very humbling to be greeted with so love and be reminded what my music means to people in their lives and how it’s inspired and motivated young ladies to be themselves and rock their own style with confidence.

In recovery now, my Mom’s progress will be slower than we thought. She made it out of the surgery which was huge – telling me with over 3,000 people praying for me, I had to make it. She was overwhelmed at the outpouring of love and support.

We’d talked about the legendary Joan Rivers before and were sad to hear that she’d passed. We’d both met her when I was a guest on The Joan Rivers Show and also the original Fashion Police – she was so nice and gracious to us and so funny through the years – what a trailblazer.

 

 

I took my mother  to a convalescent home yesterday for physical therapy and to help get her strong enough to walk. The first person we saw when arriving was another older woman whose legs had been amputated due to diabetes. Sobering.

Take care of yourselves – and never take your health for granted. Work out, stretch, eat well.

 

On a happier note, I enjoyed seeing a few more ‘PARADISE’ shares, the music always keeps me in a good mood.
