I never thought I would have made it past day 2 much less make it to day 31. This challenge was amazing! It forced me to connect with the side of blogging that got me started. I had good days & not so good ones but I have no regrets. It was a well needed … Continue reading Mission Accomplished
It’s probably the Melanin
I did nothing exceptional when I was getting ready this morning, however, I seem to be attracting a little more attention than I am used to. I don't know if it is the fact that my mini twist resembles dreads. I don't know if it is the fact that I have adorned them with "gold" … Continue reading It’s probably the Melanin
No Sir…I love me WAY more than I love you.
I was sitting innocently at my desk listening to a song I have listened to many times but for some reason today I actually listened to it. The song is very melodic & captivating so I attribute that to me not really noticing what the hell she was singing about. In the song, her man is … Continue reading No Sir…I love me WAY more than I love you.
The Day Before…
Sunday is my least favourite day of the week. It's the day before my mundane routine begins for another five days. I know I know... *insert all versions of positivity* I have the power to make my day or week spectacular. Sometimes though, the change we need is bigger than our current situation & can't … Continue reading The Day Before…
#RudeGyalSwag #Throwback: Midi Skirt
Rotary Installation seasons lately have required me to become rather creative. Ever since I became a member, I found that myself accumulating semi formal dresses that I only wore once or twice before having to give them away. Last season, I decided not to buy any new dresses but instead to mix & match pieces I already … Continue reading #RudeGyalSwag #Throwback: Midi Skirt

Happy 129th Birthday Marcus! A great man, a great leader, a champion of the black race. I could not spend today sharing anything else but information about this visionary. Jamaica’s first National Hero was born in St. Ann’s Bay, St. Ann, on August 17, 1887. He was conferred with the Order of the National … Continue reading Happy Birthday Marcus!
As I watch the Jamaican Athletes in Rio strive for gold, I can't help but be inspired. Nothing worth having ever comes easy. It usually takes lots of hard work & major sacrifices to achieve our goals. The other day I came cross a video which served as a reminder that hard work can make a … Continue reading Golden Moments
Hold on to the light…
It's been a long day for me. What started as a fairly easy day turned into a faith testing mess but I am glad I survived! My birthday is 2 days away & I legitimately have no idea what I really want to do. My 2016 has been awesome so far & I have done … Continue reading Hold on to the light…
Mental Health needs to be a serious issue in Jamaica
Today is one of my sad days. It is a day when I feel like curling up in a ball & just shutting out the world. My shoulders feel burdened, my head is a mess & I feel like I don't want to go on. Today, I am just a girl having a bad day … Continue reading Mental Health needs to be a serious issue in Jamaica

It has been a week since I started my #31for31BlogChallenge & it has been amazing! The challenge of actually posting a blog each day has pushed me mentally because I have to balance blogging with my job & other responsibilities. The challenge has so far forced me from blogging from my heart & to go … Continue reading About a week ago
