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 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!
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.
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,
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.
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!

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!

I must share with you my incredible Easter weekend!
I was part of one of the most thrilling experiences of 2018 so far; an interactive indoor / outdoor play re-enacting the last days of Jesus walk on earth, put on by my church.
The authenticity of the experience made it at times extremely sad and overwhelming with intense inner feelings of gratitude and humility.
Yours truly was an angel who danced in adoration to Jesus at his resurrection. I also danced in the Jerusalem marketplace.
At first I was hesitant to be a part of the dance group but I felt it would be something interesting to explore, a way to push out of my comfort zone.
It was one of my best decisions this year thus far!
So, enjoy the collage, let me know what you think.
