Jamaica Vacation with a Dash of Carnival

This post is long overdue.  A little over a month ago I visited one of my favourite places on earth, Jamaica, to spend some much needed chill out time and to slip in a few carnival events.  Jamaica is an absolutely gorgeous country, the food is addictive and the vibe is just, well, a vibe.  There’s…

Game of Thrones Season 8, Series Finale Review

It’s over…….waaaaahhhh, sniff!  Lol.  It’s the end of an era, our watch has ended, the lord of light has come for his people, blah, blah, yakkity schmakitty.   On a serious note, I will miss looking forward to Sunday nights for this show.  I already gave my thoughts on how I feel about this season and generally…

*SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* Whoo chile!  I don’t know how else to sum up Episode 5.  Definitely, um, polarising, with what seems like more fans than not blasting it for a number of reasons such as Daenerys’ seemingly sudden turn to full-on wacko, the Lannister twins’ deaths in the rubble as opposed…

Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 2 Review

*SPOLIERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* This episode had me all in my feelings, Big Sigh.  So many “aww” moments.  This episode before the battle for Winterfell (Excited much!) was all about more reunions, possible goodbyes and finding the best ways to spend your last night on earth.  As much as I love watching…

Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 1 Review

*SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* *SPOILERS* Last night’s first episode of the much anticipated Season 8 episode 1 was the Sandra Lee tablescape, so between next week Sunday and episode 3 I expect to be at the Guy Fieri chomping on the giant hamburger stage (for all my Food Network fans out there).  Needless…
