I have never talked about my transition on the blog simply because I am not a natural hair blogger & I guess I fear natural hair blogging the same way I fear being a fashion… More
There is a beautiful side to Social Media amidst the grime & I don’t mean it’s earning potential. It allows for like minded individuals to connect regardless of their geographic location. One of my favourite Social Media platforms for such a task is What’s App & it is thanks to this messaging service that I discovered the Caribbean Women Honors & Empowerment (CWHE) St. Catherine, Kingston South & Kingston East Chapters EmpowerHER Chat Series. An associate of mine who is a member of CWHE always shared their flyers in a What’s App Group & I never got the opportunity to attend but for some reason this staging was not going to miss me.
I recently gained a lovely mentee who I am absolutely excited to guide through her formative years. Meeting her gave me the desire to want to be a better person & I thought that the speakers would help me to unearth my own potential which hopefully can help me be a better mentor.
It has been awhile since my last post. I have been feeling a bit uninspired lately & it is extremely hard for me to write when I get in that rut. Awhile back though something small occurred which inspired me to write today’s post. So I grabbed my Iphone & started to write.

I guess I am nosey but I love What’s In My Bags & Room Tours so I decided to share my What’s in my bag?: Work Edition.
Check out the essentials I need to get through my work day.
In celebration of 55 years of Independence I decided to share the Jamaican Tag!
When I first transitioned, I had not clue what I was doing so I relied heavily on blogs & YouTube videos for advice. I tried EVERY & ANY tutorial advice much to my disappointment. Once such experiment was an Aloe Vera & Water mixture which left my hair drier than chips.
Last Sunday, I felt idle so I decided to Google Aloe Vera and found that it can be used as a conditioner thanks to a Wikihow page.
So I got a knife, headed to my garden & got harvesting :)!
The blog title is my own play on a Jamaican proverb I grew up hearing.
Learn fi dance a yaad before yuh dance abraad.
TRANSLATION:Learn to dance at home before you dance abroad.
MEANINGS AND EXPLANATIONS: Try perfecting a skill in private before displaying it in public.
Well being my unruly self (like my hair) I had to dance abroad before I danced at home & I have to thank GT Network based in Trinidad & Tobago for that one dance.
“Is whole year that we waiting & we anticipating…”
I think Machel Montano summed up my Carnival weekend in his 2016 hit Waiting for the Stage. I waited a whole year for carnival & boy did it come with some hiccups but it was well worth the wait.
I never knew I would ever step foot in another I Love Soca especially after my last experience at a Waterfront edition. It took Skinny Fabulous & Kerwin Dubois being billed for the event to convince me to purchase my ticket.
