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.

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!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
Christmas and Summer are my two favorite times of the year! I hope that all had a wonderful holiday season, and for this new year my wish for you is Peace, and my suggestion for absolute peace is Prayer.
O.K with that being said, I want to share my Christmas vacation with you! As you may have guessed, I visited my old stomping ground, Brooklyn NY, and as always Brooklyn did not disappoint, we had a great holiday!
It’s amazing the way being surrounded by family, good Caribbean food and friends can quickly alter your plans (sometimes for better, sometimes for worse). My boys who were reluctant to make the trip, were asking to say an extra day, so we stayed an extra day.
We visited our old church and stepped right into the beat just as if we had not left. I loaded up on my Caribbean foods (oxtails, callaloo, rice and peas, fried fish, curry goat, sweet potatoes, black cake and sorrel, yes lots of sorrel!)
Because I had to pack for my family, I had to limit the amount of outfits I could carry for myself, so I accessorized with scarves and headbands and kept it basic with long sleeve t-shirts and jeans.
All in all Christmas in Brooklyn was all I hoped it would be and more, and we can’t wait to go back this Spring break and Summer (God’s willing).
In my next post you will experience my New York City adventure!
