Holy heatwave! Summer is in full effect and I don’t know about you but it is hot as hell here in Jamaica. When I step outside my car, office or out of my humble abode, I start sweating like a hooker in church. Yes, it’s that serious. As a result, I’ve been wearing alot less clothing than norm these days.
I’ve always been a fan of the infamous two piece set trend. It’s a easy and fast look that not only leaves you looking and seeming stylish (even if you don’t consider yourself a fashionista), you will look put together and feel great rocking your outfit. The set that I wore,I bought about three months ago. I was contacted by The Helpful Vegan boutique on Instagram about doing a collaboration with them and I accepted. I ended up choosing the Coastal Set as I thought the style was super cute. The material has a blue vertical stripe print, is really lightweight and extremely comfortable. I’m pretty tall ( 6’1″ to be exact) and the shorts were high waisted and gave me enough booty coverage as well. It was perfect for the Sunday sightseeing I went on, in addition to taking pictures for this post. Comment below what your favorite summer style has been. Until next time. Xoxo.
While I was going through some pictures on my laptop, I stumbled upon a photo album that was dated Summer 2017. This time last year was bittersweet for me so I cautiously opened it up. As I scrolled the items, I smiled a bit as it brought me back to a place of contentment. If my memory serves me right it was the first outfit post I ever did for my old blog website. I thought I’d share it here in the form of a post. A little throwback don’t hurt anyone right? 🙂 By the way, yes that’s me in the pictures. Yes I had short hair with shaved sides. I’m in the process of growing out my hair now, and I currently wear faux locs (naturalistas will know the struggle). Just thought I’d add that info so when you see a recent post of me, you don’t become entirely confused. Until next time. Xoxo.
Hey All! Since my roadtrip, I’ve been working on some fashion ideas as I am super inspired. So I’ve been noticing that there has been a serious love for all things retro for the spring into summer seasons. And I can’t say that I hate it. After filling my soul with all the Coachella videos and blog posts via Youtube and fashion and travel blogs, I gave in to the fashion pressures and decided to indulge a bit and get some items for myself. I love all accessories but what really stood out were all the retro cateye sunglasses I kept seeing while scrolling my Instagram feed. This trend is definitely re-emerging and I don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon. Heck, it probably never left to begin with. Alot of the trendy glasses companies have jumped on the bandwagon all the way to the bank and are allowing for the regular Joe or Jane to look great on a budget. These were my picks and I am loving them. I will be styling these items in up coming outfit posts as I am seriously in loveeeee. Until next time.
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.
It pains me to bid farewell to winter. I already live in a warm country and believe me, it is for this exact reason that I cherish the cooler days that come in abundance at this time of year. Typically, I only get to enjoy my sweaters, jumpers, jackets and boots between the months of November and February. This year we were blessed to see the season linger a bit longer as if it were as sad as I was to see it go. In reality, those pieces I own are parked to the back of my closet once I’m in my home country of Jamaica, unless I make a trip to cold New York City, where I’m forced to dig them up so I don’t freeze to death.
Call me crazy, but I love winter. There’s something about warm baths and showers, cool breeze, the occasional downpour of rain, hot cocoa and Netflix while under the covers that always puts me in a good mood. I find that I achieve better sleeping patterns and more sleep overall as well. Winter wear also has a level of snuggly sophistication that I absolutely love. I am able to dress them up or down. I’m more a comfy casual kind of gal. I decided for one last time before I have to bit adieu to my cozy pieces, I wanted to share my favorite pieces I wore more times than I can count on one hand. Comment below your favorites and if you have pieces that are similiar my style! Until next time.
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
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.
