Time – 2:34 PM

Feeling – Nonchalant? Not sure how to describe my feeling at the current moment

Eating/Drinking – Water

Listening To – People in the office

Missing – The peace and quiet of being at home; how easy school life was (Enjoy the moment if you’re still there; those problems are nothing compared to the “real world”).

Wishing – I was on a yacht or at a hotel relaxing, somewhere I can see and hear the ocean/sea.

Should be Doing –  So much work, planning for meetings/fundraisers/blog posts/social time with friends and probably so many other stuff.

Seasons are for a Reason

We all go through things in life, and I think if it’s one thing we always notice is nothing lasts forever. The lows we may feel, or a spontaneous high from something exciting; it’s all temporary.

A Season does not last a lifetime

Not trying to be the bearer of bad news here, but it’s the truth. Let’s talk about the bad first. Try and remember a time where you were scared at the outcome of something; or felt like “this is it” life has no meaning and the worst thing was currently happening to you. Now fast forward to present moment, was it really?

Were all of the things you thought of previously the worst things that could happen in you life? Were there no silver linings? Did they last forever? NO!

It’s all temporary. Continue reading “Seasons are for a Reason”

So we’re two weeks into January and this is the state I’m currently in:

THE STATS

Time – 11:15 A.M.

Feeling – Anxious and Content

Eating/Drinking – A PB&J Sandwich with a glass of lemonade

Listening To – The sound of the fan and the trees blowing outside. It’s actually a pretty gorgeous day and I’m spending it inside #womp.

Missing – My newest friend Nella and also this boy I’ve grown a liking to

Wishing – Things were simple and all my “problems” would just go away. I know they’re probably minuscule to what others may be dealing with, but stilllll

Should be Doing – My work reports, but who does work on a Sunday? Continue reading “Currently I am ~ 14.01.18”

Find Happiness in Yourself NOT “STUFF”

Happy Sunday! How have you guys been?

Happiness is something which we all try to achieve for our little own sanity. To be content, carefree, cheerful, merry, joyful all of that; It would be awesome if we could be happy 24/7 and not worry about anything but that’s just life.

However, many people feel that once they purchase something tangible or get into a relationship with someone, that they will be fulfilled. WRONG! That’s not how it works, or of course you’d be happy for sometime then you’d want something else again and the process repeats.

Instead of relying on “STUFF” for happiness; whether it be a new car, phone, clothes, jewelry etc etc try looking within. True fulfillment can come in so many other ways, here are a few: Continue reading “Find Happiness in Yourself NOT “STUFF””

Natural Hair Tag

Happy New Year once again. Towards the end of last year I added a new tab on the blog for Natural Hair. I decided to share with you my trials and errors that I go through with my hair in order to inspire others and gain feedback from you guys which may assist me. As it’s a new year I’m starting out with a natural hair tag which would give you a little introduction on my natural hair journey. I’m also not going to tag anyone so feel free to participate if you have natural hair!

Let’s get into it.

Tell us about your hair texture ~

My hair is thick and kinky, or at least it was before I decided to straighten it and end up getting heat damage (post coming soon). If I had to use the hair chart I’d say 4C because my curls are extra tight. Continue reading “Natural Hair Tag”

2018: Unapologetic + Unstoppable

Hey everyone! Happy Monday and an oh so Happy New Year! We made it! It’s 2018 and I have a mighty good feeling about this one. 2017 wasn’t all that terrible nor was it great; just like any other year it had its ups and downs or more downs than ups. Nonetheless, I remain hopeful to the new year and all the good energy it brings forth.

here's to 2018_

As I read many of my other bloggers last posts of 2017 I gained so much inspiration and words of wisdom which I plan to take into the new year. The word which got to me the most however was, “Resolutions aren’t the problem. Your discipline is.”Mattie James. That in itself struck a nerve, because I’d make all these lists of goals, plan a gazillion things in my head but do I act on them? No…. I’m lazy point-blank period and that has got to change for 2018. Continue reading “2018: Unapologetic + Unstoppable”

Blogmas Day 6 // A Caribbean Christmas pt 3

Hey Guys! Guess what??? It’s the last installment of the “Caribbean Christmas” series! Woohoo. First off, I’d like to thank each and every one of you who replied to my messages and deciding to participate. This would not have been possible without you and I really appreciate it. Hopefully we can all do a Caribbean blog collaboration some time.

Next up are views of a Bahamian and Jamaican living in USA.

1 // What does Christmas mean to you?

Christmas to me, means family time, celebrating with loved ones, reconnecting with old friends, giving as well lots and lots of food haha. I love that there’s a festive feeling in the air and it also signals to me time for reflection and keeping things close that keep me grounded.

It’s nice hearing the different views on how others celebrate the season, don’t you agree? We got started hearing from two of my blogging buddies in Grenada and Guyana (here); now we’re going to hear from three more within the Caribbean region.

1 // What does Christmas mean to you?

Christmas to me, isn’t necessarily a religious thing – it’s a season of giving, celebrating all the experiences I had during the year & celebrating that with friends & family by showing appreciating through gifts, good food & good vibes.  Continue reading “Blogmas Day 5 // A Caribbean Christmas pt 2”

Blogmas Day 4 // A Caribbean Christmas Pt 1

Remember when I promised you guys something new this blogmas? Well, here it is! Instead of sharing with you my story, I decided to question some of my other Caribbean bloggers and share their stories with you. It will be a three-part series in order as to not have a lengthy post.

In the tradition of keeping it short and sweet, I simply asked each blogger two questions ~

1 // What does Christmas mean to you?

2 // How do you celebrate the season in your country?

Blogmas Day 1 // Welcome

Ahhhh it’s finally Christmas season! Well, to be honest I’ve been in the mood for quite sometime (aka after thanksgiving). I don’t know what it is about Christmas that makes me feel so happy and excited; it’s not even about getting gifts (I don’t anymore) but the all around good mood is amazing.

Anyway, this is my “fourth” year blogging and I’m deciding to give Blogmas a second try! Yes, I tried it for my first last year but didn’t complete all the days. Plus I was and still am only doing 12 Days of Blogmas. For those of you who are unsure about what “Blogmas” is, it’s practically blogging for Christmas where bloggers will upload a variety of Christmas related posts. It can be from the beginning of December until Christmas or from 13th until. Youtubers also participate by calling it vlogmas.

Here’s a little recap of last year’s blogmas:
