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.
As I stood at the end of my road waiting for a route taxi (not sure if that is unique to Jamaica) to work a few of my curls fell in my face & blocked my vision for a few minutes; I proceeded to exclaim “Curls you look too good to be a vision blocker.”
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.
Am I the only female who takes two bags to work?
Thanks for stopping by… Walk Good

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 :)!
Look at that Aloe Vera
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.
This land that I love
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.
It’s officially soca season in Jamaica & I am super excited!!!!
The main reason why I love Carnival is definitely the music!…I LOVE SOCA MUSIC!
So by January I usually know all the songs. This year it was easier to get access to all my music thanks to a few apps & some trusted YouTube Accounts.
People always ask me how I keep up to date with my soca & these are my not so secret weapons.
