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!

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!

As cliche as it may sound, I honestly would rather be on a blinding white sand beach in the Caribbean, Grand Anse beach Grenada to be exact.
You see I am an island girl, Grenadian born, so nostalgia is real right now.
My toes in the warm sand, a chilled virgin pina colada while laying aimlessly under a shady coconut tree, alternating ever so often with the perfectly calm, clean, turquoise water.
So yes, I’d rather be home right now if I had it my way.

Hey all!!! Summer is Here!!!!!
I absolutely and completely LOVE Summer!
Pretty sundresses, bright colors everywhere, sunshine daily, flip flops and ice cream are some of the things that make this season my fav!
So on this bright summer Wednesday I mustered up enough courage to rock my TuTu. Not just any TuTu, a bright cobalt blue one!
The biggest decision was what shirt to wear with it, so I eventually narrowed my options down to a tee shirt and a neon cotton shirt, and took pics of both looks for you to check out. To jazz it up a tad, I knotted the front of both shirts, yes maam.
Honestly, I love both looks!
And can we talk about the colors… I know coupling bright blue with neon pink may seem a bit risky, but its a fashion risk I am willing to take. As you may have figured out by now, I live my life in color, with zero apologies!
So, my brave fashionistas, let’s rock our colors any which way we please this summer!
PS: You can turn this look all the way up with heels, or turn it all the way down with sneakers. Cute flats settles it right in the middle.
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!
