March 2012, Vanity Fair - Hollywood Issue. James, Jake, Ryan and Anne Hathaway were on that cover. It was so sophisticated and well written. I read the whole thing twice, I never read anything twice unless its ‘self-help’. I sooner fell for Porter and W, but Vanity Fair was the bible of the literary world for publications of this class. And Boom!, KB’s voice began to develop.

In 2014 we steered the digital brand that is KB offline with the specialty event; “Kingston Belle Boozy Brunch”. Heralded for its swanky downtown location and international vibe, the Kingston Belle Boozy Brunch was formerly held on last Sunday’s bi-monthly and hosted Jamaica’s elite social influencers and artists. Over the past four years Kingston Belle Boozy Brunch has partnered with Musicians, Artists, Designers, Chefs, and brands like KERRY manwomanhome, Swiss Stores and Toyota. The last local staging inside the historic Devon House, home to the World's 3rd best ice-cream, remains highly revered. See here Jamaica Gleaner | Jamaica Observer
