“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!!

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

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!

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!!!!!

Shoes indeed!

via Daily Prompt: Suddenly

So it suddenly dawned on me while contemplating what my next post would be that an outfit is only as strong as the shoes worn with it!

Of course we each have different taste and individual style, so our shoes will be a reflection of that. Our mood, the season and our destination will also determine our shoe pick; formal or casual, winter or summer, trendy or classic, daytime or night time.

The beautiful thing is the variety of choices we have when it comes to footwear; boots vs. shoes, heels vs. flats, sandals vs. pumps, bright color vs. basic, and the list goes on and on………..

Check out four of my outfits and the footwear I chose to rock with them, enjoy!

ps. always, always have pedicured toes whenever you are wearing open toe shoes!

Shoes indeed!

So NOT your Typical winter color

via Daily Prompt: Typical

Blacks, browns, and dark grays are some of the typical dark colors worn during the winter months and usually as the weather lightens, so does the colors of our wardrobe.

I am bored sick of these blah colors, so guess what, I stepped out of the norm, and rocked a red-orange pants on a chilly winter afternoon in March. This bright rorange (red + orange) color as my 7 year old son coined it, was so not your typical winter color!

It commanded attention wherever I went, because in reality I was brave enough to step into my own lane.

The best thing is that it is corduroy so my legs were warm!

Fashionable and functional.

Black anyone???

When I was younger I was not a fan of wearing black because I thought it was such a boring color that made me look way too thin.

However, as I matured and my fashion taste expanded, I dibbled and dabbled in wearing black, and now I am confident enough to wear an entire black outfit.

So, I wore this outfit to a semi-formal day event, but you can tweek it any which way you like!

Of course I had to incorporate some color so I wore dark red shoes, and to take it up a few notches, I matched my lip color to my shoes!

Check out my pics below, let me know if you like them! xoxo
