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.
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
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!
Psalms 34:8 Oh taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in him!
Dresses are so girly and I think I don’t wear them often enough.
So on this sunny day I chose this peach/nude/light pink dress to rock. This color works well with almost all skin tones.
I absolutely love the length! Midi it is called, and I think this length flatters my tall frame well.
So to add some personality to the outfit, I brought in my neon pink heeled shoe, and took it a bit further by adding my bright cobalt blue convertible clutch bag/purse.
My color tribe will enjoy this combination, but to those who stay neutral, be brave and add a bit of color.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son; that whosoever believes in should not perish, but have eternal life
This was a very warm day, and though the summer is winding down I was so happy for the opportunity to rock my summer wear!
So I picked out my gold bermuda shorts, and paired it with my mustard yellow satin blouse.
The highlight of this outfit though was the animal print shoe! I always enjoy rocking this shoe because I think it adds flavor to any outfit.
Finally, my burgundy crossbody purse completed the look!
Summer is my favorite season, so I am always sad to see this season end. However, this was a colorful summer for me, and I hope it was for you too!
Walk into the fall in color, boldly!
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
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!
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!
