Social Media Faux Pas

I love this meme.  Why?  I am so tired of people mindlessly sharing random quotes from a supposed source that didn’t really say it.  So annoying because everyone just assumes that Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Nelson Mandela said every wise thing there is to be said.  Really? Note: Vladimir Putin DID NOT say this….

Review: 25

I’ve been waiting for Adele to release this album since 2012, not too long after I had made “21”  my go to driving and personal karaoke companion for an entire year. I played the hell out of “Turning Tables”, “Rumor Has It” and the heartbreaking “Someone Like You”, including watching the live version on YouTube over…

Unapologetically Me

How many of us can say this and mean it? My birthday is coming up and because of a number of things that have happened over the past year, I’ve thought more and more about whether I am happy with who I am. I am one of the biggest believers in self improvement and seeking…

When You Can’t Get that Appointment

Ladies, y’all ever had to go to a different hairdresser, waxer, nail tech etc. when you were in a bind? Somebody you never went to but a friend says to you, “Trust me, she.is.good…trust…” and you go, “You sure? ‘Cause I although my eyebrows look like Crunchy from Jumpstart, I don’t want to be eyebrow-less.”…

Change or be Left Behind

I recently observed ten years of practice at the Barbados Bar and simultaneously celebrated the calling to the same Bar of my younger sister.  As was asked of me in 2005 and even when I announced my intention to study law while trying to decide whether I would go to Barbados Community College or sixth…

Review: Paint & Groove

I heard about Paint & Groove from a colleague who had attended one of the painting parties for a friend’s birthday.  I was immediately intrigued as a former art student (good at drawing terrible at painting, lol) and generally someone who likes to try something different. What is Paint & Groove?  It’s a painting party…

7 Things You Should Learn About Living on a Caribbean Island

I read an article last year published in the Huffington Post entitled, “7 Life Changing Lessons I’ve Learned Living on a Caribbean Island”.  My first question was, where in the “Ker-ih-be-un” the writer lived and what the hell kind of island she lived on. To be clear, the Caribbean is made up of a number…

Narcos: The Addiction is Real

So I don’t get the opportunity to watch as much TV as I used to but a few weeks ago I took the time over 3 days to watch the awesomeness that is Narcos. Apart from learning what “Hijo de Puta” means, I was hooked partially because it’s just a well put together show and…

Rih-Spect!

Lahve, Lurve, Love off this girl! Yeah yeah, I’m Bajan so we rep Rihanna wherever we go (I did it as far away as France in 2010, when a man asked me where I was from and who was famous from Barbados). From the minute I heard that some girl from Barbados had been signed…

Vacation Puh-leeeaase!!!!

Don’t have a lot to say tonight except that Rih Rih’s article in Vanity Fair gives me all the feels but more on that later when I’m not yawning myself into oblivion. Have you ever been so tired that it feels like work to even breathe? *Slowly raises hand* I CANNOT RIGHT NOW. JUST CANNOT….

My First 5K – Barbados Cares – Hot Sun

So anyone who is in Barbados right now knows that our beloved hurricane season is treating us with unparalleled disdain by sucking up every cubic inch of moisture and keeping it in the thick black clouds that sit there and say, “Wuh you gine do ’bout it?”, when we ask why is it so freaking…

Navigating the Waters of Female Friendships

Now look here, in case you may not realise, Basketball Wives, Love and Hip Hop and Real Housewives of Anything are TV Shows.  The participants are paid to get on TV and act cray.  If your friendships are this duh-rama filled, have a seat and re-examine your life because that isn’t normal.  Also very bad…
