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.
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say rejoice!
I absolutely have to share this experience with you all!
So, I went back to the Caribbean island where I was born for my summer vacation, and Grenada is completely and utterly beautiful!!
I must say I indulged!
From the mouth watering foods I grew up on, hanging out with friends I knew all my life, and visiting the breath taking natural sites I once took for granted, each time trying to hold on to each moment as they all too quickly transition into memories.
I must say, I was inspired all over again, and this trip solidified why the love of color is innately ingrained in my dna!
There is color EVERYWHERE! Even the houses are painted in almost every shade on the color spectrum, from green to yellow to purple to even hot pink!
As I continue to explore and reignite the love I have for my homeland, I will pause this post and assure you that there will be more to come.
Below is a snapshot of natural island beauty at its best!
Stay tuned……to be continued!
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth
Hello my friends!!
So summer is absolutely fantastic so far! And, as you all know by now I live in color.
So on this bright summer day I decided to put together an outfit that had many layers.
First I mixed colors; shocking yellow skirt and black and white gingham shirt!
Second, I mixed patterns; black and white checked shirt and zebra patterned belt!
Third, I rocked a bright yellow turban! This is a daring fashion accessory that can hype any outfit to the next level.
To round it all off, I casually showcased my light blue nylon backpack that encourages us to “THRIVE” and not just survive!
I know that this might be a bit overwhelming for some, but take a fashion risk and try something new, add color, mix patterns and always, always thrive!
A little color can go a long way!
Philippians 4:13 says, I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.
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!
Psalms 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
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!
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
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!
Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and he shall give you the desires of your heart.
Hello my friends,
Let’s talk about the denim overalls!
This piece takes me all the way back to my childhood, and I’m pretty sure some of you can relate, we each had a pair!
The fun thing is that as a grown up I can own a pair and still rock it well ! Overalls for the most part can be worn casual or you can dress it up if you wish, the choice is yours!
So I totally dressed down my overall. I wore it with white t shirt and bright pink converse. I felt so young and oh so summer cool.
By the way, when I was a child we called this a “farmer brown”.
Check out my pics and enjoy! xoxo
Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
I want to share with you other beautiful women that I have the joy and pleasure of knowing.
So I introduce to you, Miss Sekema! She is a Godly woman, wife, mother and diva who always brings it with her outfits!
It is obvious that we are island women, because she loves and rocks color almost as much as I do!
So, last Sabbath when she rocked this fabulous purple outfit (her favorite color), from shoes, to watch, to sunglasses, I just had to capture it and share it with you all.
Enjoy, my treat!!!
Hey all! Missed chatting with you!
So today was an absolute summer day! I was hot and at times sweaty, but since I am an island born chick (Grenadian born) I was loving every moment of it!
I decided that it was time to start rocking my summer white, and I went all the way with it.
My floor sweeping white jersey skirt with my blue cotton shirt (I love shirts) was my outfit of choice.
To add an edge to my outfit, I tied my blue scarf around my head and let the ends flow freely down my shoulders!
You can always expect colors from my outfits, don’t be afraid to try it, be bold!
Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heaven (NIV)
Good fathers are a blessing from God!
For those dads who have been there from conception and still answers present with their children, they should be celebrated!
Of course every child should experience life with a good father, but as we all know, life does not always leave every child with their father present daily.
So, with that said, I took a little time to focus on four outstanding fathers I know and admire greatly!
They are God fearing, christian men who find joy in embracing their roles as husbands and dads, all while looking cool!
I present to you my husband Devon with our boys Jagan and Maximus, Evans Chambers with his son Owen, Terrance Jakes with his baby boy August, and Ryan Evans with his son Gavin.
Let’s celebrate them!!!!!
