“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!!

Home again!! Color life!!

Hello Friends!

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!

Black and White, and The yellow turban!!

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.

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!

Delightful day to love on the summer white, with a dash of blue!

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!

It’s Father’s Day! Let’s celebrate a few good men!

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!!!!!

Cool in my Culotte! happiness, joy!

Hey friends!

So today was a gorgeous, bright , sunny day!

I decided to rock an old school style that is on the comeback, the Culotte! Actually, I purchased it over a year ago but have not found the right event to unveil it.

So I wore it with a light shirt, a few shades lighter than the pants and teal skinny belt. I completed the look with a splash of color, bright orange shoes!

I love this look! it looks polished without being too stiff, a bit sophisticated with a retro vibe if you ask me.

I hope you enjoy these pics as much as I enjoyed rocking this outfit!

An excitingly bold, Yellow day!

Hello my friends!

I have not posted in a couple weeks, it was raining, and raining, and raining!

So today the sun was shining in all of its glory and I was inspired to don my favorite color, from top to bottom!

I know right! to some folks it may be a lot of brightness, but I always take chances with my outfits.

You see, I’m quite comfortable with color. In fact, I cannot imagine living life in black and white.

So today, while in a place of gratitude to GOD and all he is doing in my life, I wanted to reflect outside what I was feeling inside, and I picked my happiness color, Yellow!

My delight is in the Lord!

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!

xoxo
