My last blog post was literally made on March 5th and if my math is correct that is (-counts in head-) over 7 MONTHS ago! To be honest, in these 7 month,s from my perspective my blog was shut down! I refused to post anything, I refused to even visit the page because I gave up on myself as a blogger and piled up all my doubts and insecurities with the convenience of being busy into one ball and said f*** this!
Sunday Best (n): A person's best clothes worn on special occasions. This Sunday, in an effort to add a little "extraness" to my simple style, I've decided to try my "Sunday Best" for church. It's my favourite tie from AllTiedUpJamaica and a vest from my Granddad's closet.
So you have a Valentine and you think, what am I gonna get her? or what am I gonna get him?Gone are the days when people buy chocolates and roses for Valentine's Day and that's it. In the new methods of relationship-ing, gifts are more thoughtful, more unique and more personal! So ofcourse, I did some research and put together a gift guide for him and her!
Okay I hear you over there "What on God's Earth is Athleisure?" It's basically wearing athletic wear...as your everyday style. It moved from people being lazy and wearing trainers and joggers to go pick up coffee in LA to becoming one of the 'biggest trends of 2017'. This trend didn't get me hyped up for this simple reason: I generally don't do athletic wear muchless athleisure!
It's February which means, not only Black History Month but the month of Valentine's Day, the LOVE month. First comes love, then comes . . .marriage! As a young person with young adult friends I've been invited to a fair share of weddings in the last few months and oh how excited I've been to attend. However something dawned on me as I tried to find an outfit for one of these weddings. . .I realised......I was not the one .....getting married.
Checks Calendar-....yes, Christmas is knocking on our doors and with the Holiday comes family, fun, food, friendship and most certainly GIFTS. It's VERY difficult to find the perfect gift for someone and many people wait on the final hour to make a decision and end up buying gifts which lack thought and don't match the person's style or personality. Wouldn't it be great if there were someone or something to help you with gift buying?
This is the final post in the SKINsecurity Series and I can't stress enough how grateful I am for the support from all angles! By reading my most recent post on my journey with skin care and my friend Jeneque's post and by responding to my request for your stories, you're becoming a part of a movement! ALSO! I have partnered with Earth Elements to do the PERFECT giveaway! This giveaway is a full skin-care routine! Find out how you can WIN!
We continue on this SKINSecurity Series and I thought I'd expose you guys to someone really close to home! So those who know me well, know that one of my closest closest friends is Jeneque Pinnock! I was introduced to the SKINsecurity series from inception, having weighed in on the name during Rushane’s brainstorming phase. Soon after followed his request for me to take part and share my story… I immediately froze (I never shared this feeling with him, until now). I honestly felt a bit anxious, nervous and well, insecure about talking about my own battles with my skin and my journey to accepting it. But, here goes!
This SKINSecurity series is all about you but I would be a legitimate fraud if I didn't share my OWN story! (with photos of my acne and all). A few years ago I volunteered at a primary school and helped the children to prepare for their exams. One of the children (God Bless His CHATTERBOX SOUL) turned to one of my friends and said "WHY IS THE SIDE OF HIS FACE SO DARK?!" ding ding ding ding! -queues insecurity and self-conscious thoughts-
