Jody Watley – “Sanctuary” and “Paradise” 2014 Glass

The first Jody Watley luxury soy candles (Sanctuary and Paradise”) arrived in 2014 to coincide with release of “Paradise” EP with singles of the same name along with “Candlelight” to reflect Watley’s love of candles, calming spaces be it home, or business travel, concert venue backstage dressing and green rooms.

“My love of candles isn’t a trend or bandwagon thing for me – it’s a longstanding part of my lifestyle that I’m passionate in bringing to others.” – Jody Watley

The online boutique was established in 2000 – I’d wanted my own store going back as far as my childhood dreams of things I wanted to accomplish. The internet and online e-commerce made it possible.

Thank you to customers new and long-standing, more exciting products to come – always shipped with love, care and good vibes – it’s not just a transaction!

Things You Love. Daily Life Hack.

I love candles which inspired me to create a signature line. Currently available exclusively in my online shop ‘Sanctuary’ and ‘Comfort’ with a third scent in the works!

There are so many things in life that we can’t control. I tend to try to focus on the things within my control or reach especially when it comes to home..as I always like to remind you – surround yourself with things you love. Your house may not be that mansion on the beach, or the penthouse apartment with a view of Central Park or any abode of your ultimate dreams, however you can still give your spot the love and bring to it a sense of joy and peace-always in gratitude.

Happy Sunday. Gratitude.

Sunday Sanctuary.

Happy Sunday – saw these beautiful green hydrangeas couldn’t resist, they compliment my ‘Sanctuary’ luxury soy candle (a best seller on my online shop) perfectly today! Two of my indulgences are definitely flowers and candles.. ok three – add a good quality cup hot coffee or tea.

I learned the hydrangea represents gratitude, grace and beauty. It also radiates abundance because of the lavish number of flowers and the generous round shape. Its colours symbolise love, harmony and peace…sounds good to me! Sunday blessings to all.

Jody Watley Named First Ambassador of The Museum of African American Music – BET

The Grammy Award winner is one of the architects of 21st century pop culture. She was a part of one of the earliest collaborations between Hip Hop and R&B when she worked with Eric B. & Rakim on the 1987’s “Friends.” Watley was also big into fashion, marrying a number of luxury brands with street fashion and music in the 1980s – long before it became normal.

“We are excited to name Jody Watley as our membership ambassador,” Kara Duke, Development and Membership Manager at NMAAM said in a statement on March 1. “Black Music finally has a home and with your support, we can make sure it will be here to inspire visitors for years to come.” Read Full Feature on BET.com

Jody Watley Serves As Inspiration for Contemporary Designer A. Potts for Spring 2021 New York Fashion Week.

A. Potts Spring 2021

“..Potts showcased his Fall 2021 collection digitally which was inspired by Jody Watley’s 1987 music video for her song “Still A Thrill.” With it, Potts’ resulting meditation on light, shadow, darkness and the associated interpretations of these phenomena, led him to think about dance and movement. – Paper Magazine
