3 Little Birds is a lipstick that reminds me of my core;  my core values, my heritage and who I have become.  My family is a cod fish and dumpling, Bob Marley loving, Jamaican family.  Growing up, food, good home cooked food,  was always abundant and present at all family gatherings .  My mom would cook and listen to reggae music all the time.  Bob Marley was one of the main ingredients to the perfect morning of frying dumplings and plantations.  I remember watching my mom one morning, all smiles, totally happy, cooking and dancing at the same time, occasionally closing her eyes as she felt the music.  She was listening to Bob Marley’s “Don’t Worry” song.  As she sang the song  I remember clearly joining in and singing the chorus ” Three Little Birds, pitch by my doorstep, singin sweet songs of melodies pure and true, saying this is a message to you” .  The 3 Little Birds was a symbol of hope bringing the message that “every little thing gonna be alright”.  That stuck with me and I thought how blessed I was to be apart of a trio, my mom had three daughters ( 3 Little birds), and hopefully my sisters and I could represent a symbol of hope.  I now have my very own 3 Little Birds. The pictures below are of 2 sets of 3 Little Birds, my sisters and I and my 3 children.

The color of this lipstick is a reminder of the perfect sunset,  at Rick’s Café in Negril, Jamaica.
