“The Island” Treasure and Beauty!

Hey friends!!!

In my last post I asked you to “stay tuned” so now I will continue sharing with you the fabulousness of my homeland Grenada.

On this excursion I visited a tiny island directly of Grenada named Hog Island, and boy was it beautiful!

You see, during my childhood days several families from our village used to take trips to “The Island”.

There was cooking, games, fishing, swimming, exploring and just plain old fun!!

So going back was sort of euphoric and nostalgic for me, and it did not disappoint! It is still a treasure to behold! Nature’s beauty at its best, and bright tropical colors everywhere!

I took pics of the absolutely breathtaking views and scenes.

Please, enjoy!!

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say rejoice!

Color Central! Join the color movement this season!

Hello old and new friends!

It’s been a while since we last visited with each other, please forgive my absence.

But today I come bearing lots of colors! As the season transitioned from cold to warm, our outfits should also change from sad darks to happy brights!

With this in mind, green was my color of choice.

I wore this outfit two ways; shirt out with simple sunglasses, then I switched it up a bit by tucking in my shirt and rocking red dramatic sunnies!

Wide red belt coupled with shocking pink heeled sandals completed the look! I feel ready for the sunshine, and you can too!

If you are not bold enough yet to go totally bright, color it up with your accessories, and just know that they don’t have to match.

Just do it your color way!

Proverbs 21:21 whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor

Long sleeve sweater and chic boots, welcome to Fall!

Hello my friends!

Well, the warm weather is leaving and the cooler temperature is coming in, and as reluctant as I am to say bye to Summer, I am actually looking forward to the new season and the cold weather fashions!

As a prelude to the new season, on this cool day I had to pull out the long sleeves and boots.

Of course I had to make it interesting so I wore my favorite monochromatic look! (I totally enjoy wearing my outfits this way).

Head to toe in the fall color, Burgundy, I chose a neon pink belt to add a pop of color and add some “happy” to the outfit.

I know the cold season outfits can be a bit dull and boring, but they absolutely do not have to be.

You can use accessories to color it up! Scarves, hats, belts, boots and bags can all add life and color to any dull winter wardrobe!

XOXO

Amazingly bright blues, with the wonderful white belt!

Hello Everyone,

Summer is winding down, but I am still in the happy brights mood.

This led me to this brilliant blue outfit! Blue pants, blue shirt and blue sandals. To the conservative woman this may seem as a lot of one color, but I enjoy taking these fashion risks!

I must admit, I was a bit hesitant about the white belt but I am so happy with my choice as it added a bit of contrast to the blue, and it worked!

I knotted my shirt and rocked white framed reflective sunglasses to complete my ensemble!

With that said, ladies take risks with your fashion! Be you and always, always add color! Color breathes life!

xoxo

Meet my latest fashion expression, the kimono! Hello!

Hello my friends!

Lately I’ve been seeing this new fashion trend everywhere, but I had yet to try it.

I must admit I have been crushing on the kimono, but I was not sure how to rock it.

But as things turned out, I was gifted a full length white kimono a few weeks ago! It is really cool with words all over it, in beautiful summer cotton material.

I had to rock it! So with my neon pink trousers and a white Old Navy tank top, I bravely stepped out!

I absolutely enjoyed this outfit! It was all that I hoped it would be, I felt elegant, cool and Asian at the same time.

Check out my pics, let me know what you think!

A dress yesterday, a skirt today, fabulous every way!

Hello my friends!

I miss you all! I must admit my mood is shifting a tiny bit as we are nearing the end of summer.

None the less, I wanted to share with you this wonderful piece of clothing just chilling  in my closet.

So I bought this piece at a really low sale price from “Joe fresh” over 5 years ago! I thought it was a fierce piece, but I never found the right occasion to unveil it.

Recently I pulled it out, and dusted it off and in my quest to find an appropriate way to style this rich looking item, I discovered I can wear it two ways!

I rocked it like a sundress with neon sneakers, and I also rocked it like a cool maxi skirt with pink chuck taylors!

Check out my pics below and you decide which way you like best, I get the pleasure of double dipping!

Just enjoying Brooklyn, on a sensational Summer Sunday!

Hello my friends!

So I spent the past week in Brooklyn, NY mainly visiting my family and friends, and it was fantastic!

New York is a fabulous city that has endless inspiration, places to see and things to do! Since I lived there for quite a number of years, I was in familiar territory.

I did a little socializing, a little shopping and a lot of eating carribean food while enjoying family and reconnecting with one of my favorite cousin/sister/friend.

While getting new shoes for my boys, I had the pleasure of encountering not just a typical New Yorker, but an exceptional one, he was rocking amazing neon yellow hair!

I was totally captivated by his hair, so I just had to take a pic to share with you!

As expected, I could not leave Brooklyn without capturing the vibe, so with bright red jogger pants, simple white tshirt and baby blue pumps I rocked out!

Remember to live your life in color!

enjoy xoxo!

Amazing Spring day, rocking an oldie but goodie, love it!

via Daily Prompt: Sleeve

So finally today felt like Spring!

I was beside myself because I could actually feel the sun on my skin. My mood was happy and I wanted my outfit to reflect that.

So I reached wayyyy into the back of my closet and pulled out this oldie but goodie polka dot piece, and to my surprise, it fit!!

(Sidebar: The dress is actually over 10 years old! I wore it to my baby shower for my oldest son who is turning 11 this summer)

And of course, I coupled it with my favorite color long sleeve sweater, and hot pink lace-up flats.

I really, really enjoyed this outfit, because it is warm enough to comfortably wear dresses.

Check out the pics, let me know what you think!

Pale pink, chiffon and warm sunshine, I’m Spring happy actually!

I’m sure many of you will agree with me that as the weather gets warmer our mood gets happier!

So, on this sixty something degrees Spring day, I was feeling warm and fuzzy inside.

I picked out my soft pink chiffon blouse and paired it with my wide leg light denim trousers. Hot pink flats rounded out the ensemble.

My head wrap I coordinated with my outfit, (sidebar: I’m stuck on my hair dilemma – to perm or continue on my natural hair journey) dusted off and rocked my pink sunglasses, an absolute fav of mine!

So to all my ladies getting ready to rock this Spring and Summer, remember to add color to your outfit, could be a little or a lot!

Tired of dull winter skin? Make it happy for Spring!

Hey all of my Spring happy friends!

I know winter was probably rough on your skin as it was on mine, I mean it just sucks out all of the moisture and leaves us looking a hot desert dry mess!!

But, I think I found the solution!

My friend Kena, a genius in all things natural and vegan offered me a sample of her natural skin moisturizer, and I immediately fell in love!

After my shower I applied it to my damp skin and was transformed. My dry skin became luxuriously soft and babylike!

The great thing is it comes in a variety of flavors;

shea, breezy coconut, rose petals, lavender and shea coconut blend.
