Fall is here…..Life Update….Random Thoughts

Hello my faithful readers and newbies as well! With the change in season, I’ve had a few changes myself.

I would have had a post up long ago but I decided against posting a piece I wrote in a moment when my thoughts were truly scattered. After a re-read a few days later, I knew it wasn’t post-worthy.

Apart from that hiccup, I’ve been in good spirits ( for the most part).

The darker, warmer months always make me feel more cozy and secure.

I’m celebrating my 30+ tax birthday in a week and I’m usually pretty down but I’m actually looking forward to it. #scorpioseason

I will be going on a mini vacay and I will be taking you all with me 🙂

I made banana pancakes this morning and I’m pretty proud of myself #icantcookatall

Everytime I’m about to give up on the human race, I meet a decent human being.

I’ve been thinking about Europe and traveling alot lately.

Brown liquor is my drink of choice in most social settings.

Always remember…..

Fake it ’til you make it.

Not everyone is going to like you and that’s OKAY.

Do at least one great, memorable thing every year of your life.

Never do anything you don’t love for very long. You will start feeling like a prisoner. Physically and mentally.

Remember the Three P’s : Prayer, Patience & Positivity.

Until next time. Xoxo.

 

 

 

The Infamous White Button Down

Hey loves! Fall is approaching and believe me when I say I’m welcoming it with open arms. I’ve been super busy these days, hence the lack of activity here on the blog, but it was partly due to life obligations i.e work ( I’m hoping one day blogging can fully pay my bills and cover my expenses), and also a lack of motivation. I’ve actually read a few blogs in the last few weeks where bloggers have been stating that in recent times they have not been motivated to write and /or create content and even some Youtube influencers as well. Most of what I post here comes from things I can really relate to and can really feel good about. So for me, it’s not about what’s popular or trending, it’s about what I like.

Living in the Caribbean can be a bit tricky when it comes to seasons and styling. Where as in other regions by the end of summer, a person would be able to fully line up their fall wardrobe and be ready to embrace the cooler weather, here we may experience cooler nights but the days are usually still hot as hell until around end of year. This particular shoot day was both sunny and breezy.

That being said, I did a little prep myself with items I already own and a piece that I received through a collaboration. I partnered with Oh Desire to feature one of its item on the blog. I went through all their pieces and eventually stumble upon this white button down shirt dress with puffy sleeves. I found it in the dress section but being as tall as I am, I styled it as a shirt instead. I paired it with simple Old Navy Jeans and a pair of boots I found on Ebay some months back. I quite liked the crisp lines of the shirt dress and found that my jeans gave it a more edgy look. Not to mention my love for neutrals.

I already have my next blog post lined up, outfit and all, and I do hope I’ll get to shoot some pictures for it as I continue my fall fashion lineup. Comment below your favorite fall finds and outfits. Until next time. Xoxo.

Fun in the Sun

So about a week ago, it dawned on me that we were three plus months into the new year. If you ask anyone close to me, I’m always talking about how the time is flying by and all that jazz. Based on my realization, I decided that enough was enough and that  I wanted to make an impromptu trip to the North Coast of my island home. And I did. I relished in my getaway like you would never believe.  My trip however, was just what I needed and I had a wonderful time. What can really beat much needed change of scenery and rest and relaxation? Below I’ve added my pictures from my trip and also outfit information where I shopped my pieces. Until next time.

Xoxo.

Japanese Eats At Sora

Hey loves! I’ve been under the weather these last few days, but I couldn’t have the week end without putting out some well needed content. I had the pleasure of feasting with friends to indulge in one of my favorite foods: Sushi! The rooftop location was very private ( just the way I like it) and had an awesome view of the hills and surrounding city buildings. If you aren’t an outdoor kinda person, they also have the option of indoor dining. I can honestly say I’ve been a fan of sushi since trying it a few years ago. The food at this restaurant was divine. I know alot of people aren’t fans of the raw foods movement but that why I say it’s always a good idea to try it before you knock it and always educate yourself on things. You just never know. Knowledge is power. Sushi is primarily lots of raw options but there’s also delicious cooked options too. I’ve included some highlights from my night below and you can share your favorites in the comments below. You can also click the following link to see the different types of sushi options there are out there if you are considering visiting your local spot: https://delishably.com/meat-dishes/The-Different-Kinds-of-Sushi

Until next time.

Xoxo.

My First Massage

 

Hello loves! So I decided that I wanted this year to be one of many firsts, and that includes wellness and health. My sister gifted me a full body massage as a Christmas present last December and I finally decided to make use of it (I think she remembered me saying I’d never gotten one and would love to experience it.) Cassandra’s Day Spa was where I was pampered and needlesstosay, it was awesome. Super relaxing and tranquil. My massage therapist, Maureen, did a fantastic job amidst the fact that I was indeed ticklish to certain parts of my body (I made it through like a champ), and the flowing conversation we had during the session definitely help to calm my nerves. I left way less achy than when I got there and even took a short nap when it was all over.

The location was relatively easy to find, situated in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle and was located approximately 20-25 minutes from where I call home. The actual building was really cute and modernly decorated and had a contemporary interior design. All the pictures can be viewed below. The overall customer service was excellent and I can say I will definitely be booking another session soon. Let me know about your spa experiences by commenting below! Until next time.

xoxo.
