    in Books

    This week, on Gumbo Ya Ya,  join host Debbie Workman as she interviews upcoming romance author, Natalie Alder. Ms Adler is the author of Constructing Love (found in the Windswept Valentine Anthology) and Trouble Looming (part of the Tapestry Series) , named March book of the month by Platypire Reviews. Come over, relax and enjoy listening to Debbie talk to Natalie about her fabulous books!

    Natalie's Bio
    I write stories about romance. They center on learning about the characters backgrounds, personalities and life circumstances that mold them into who they are and how they love.

    I am a sassy 40-something year old. I live in a quiet farming town in New England with my husband of fifteen years and our three rescued cats. After college I facilitated improvement in the physical abilities of children and the elderly then took the opportunity to enjoy my creative side. I love to sew, knit, write...sing and drink martinis (not necessarily at the same time).

    Enchanted Silence; How to Trust Yourself after a Painful Experience

    in Spirituality

    Enchanted Silence; How to Trust Yourself after a Painful Experience with Priyanka Yadvendu


    Priyanka Yadvendu makes her home in the San Francisco Bay Area and enjoys running, volunteering, and drinking chocolate martinis. For the first time at 24, she picked up her pen (well, actually laptop!) and began writing her debut novel Enchanted Silence. In the years that have since passed, her life has gone through several changes, but the breaking point came when dealing with the aftermath of her father’s stroke.


    It finally dawned on her:


    She wanted to laugh with the people she loved, not discuss agendas and errands. She wanted to tell her father she loved him, not be angry at him. She wanted to seize moments that made her feel alive, not feel overwhelmed with hectic schedules. She wanted to move forward in her career and relationships with flow and beauty, not cling tightly onto them. And, most of all, she wanted to feel deeply fulfilled, not chase happiness and say: “I’ll be happy when…”


    Until she finally realized her outer world is a reflection of her inner state. Just like the protagonist Shivani Rai in Enchanted Silence, she then learned to let go of perfection and instead be kind and gentle to herself and the people she loved.

    The Event Jeannie has Bombay Sapphire's Gary Hayward LIVE in C&G's office 10/10!

    in Lifestyle

    This week we will not only be infused with imagination, but also with alcohol! We will be continuing our Fall “Wet Your Whistle” series on Wednesday, December 10th at noon LIVE from our offices with Colin Asare-Appiah.  The Bacardi Portfolio Master Mixologist will be whipping us up some innovative new cocktails, perhaps even some of the final contenders of Bombay’s “The World’s Most Imaginative Bartender” competition.


    It should come as no surprise that the company whose namesake is a 182 carat sapphire entitled the Star of Bombay enjoys crowning the best bartenders in the world.  The real gem of the company, however, is their brand new distillery, Laverstoke.  Designed by multiple award winning designer, Thomas Heatherwick, the distillery boasts a BREEAM award for sustainability and two stunning, intertwining botanical glasshouses.  These glasshouses are meant to maintain two separate climates, one tropical and one temperate to foster the ten botanicals from around the world infused into every bottle of Bombay.  If we are lucky, maybe Gary will reveal if the rumor about these gin botanicals making people angry is true, or a complete hoax.


    So get your shakers ready.  If we can have martinis on a Wednesday afternoon then so can you!
