Wednesday was my Mom's Birthday and being the wonderful daughter that I am, I decided it was best to take her to town and grab a bite to eat. She donned her best outfit, put on some make-up and we headed into town to do some exploring and have a bit of good ole birthday fun. We went to C&C wine house to get some delicious Chicken Alfredo Pasta, then restaurant hopped to Big Banana for some coconut crushes and butter rum cake. We ate till we were fat, but of course i always have time to snap a few pictures of the food before scarfing it down.

We did also do a little eye shopping in town too! We walked into this store called Island Gourmet Boutique and look at the wonderful goodies they had there. We looked at the Locally made Jams and cooking supplies and took in the tasteful decor that adorned the cozy little shop.

I was so happy to pose with their potted Aloe, which i thought was beautiful, and spazzed over the Cotton and Cane decorative elements that they used in the store. I really loved the vintage feel that the store had and wished i had photographed their calabash lights for this short post.

We made our way to another store on Heritage Quay which had lovely local soaps on display. They had the most amazing fragrance and only cost $8.00XCD which was a pretty good deal to me. The packaging was also quite lovely and was what attracted me to the soaps in the first place.

All in all i can say that we had a good day and i'm sure my mom enjoyed her birthday outing.

Big Chop

Well, It's obvious that i'm weeks late with this post.... but ... i finally big chopped! I did it on Sunday May 4th at approx 10 something in the morning with blue handled tailor scissors. I had a whole lot of hair under there. I really love my TWA which as i have noted before is one big puff of 4C hair. For some reason, people seem to hate 4c hair, but i actually like it and my hair is pretty darn soft. Shrinkage plagues my daily life but it's for the best. I do a lot of flat twists and have come across some pretty great products namely As I am coconut co-wash and Hawaiian Silky. Those are my favorites along with Indian Hemp a grease i use on my scalp. I love my new hair and my new look :) and i hope you like it too. I'm gonna have fun on this journey and i hope i attain the happy healthy hair i want. 

 

 

 

Flash Back: orla kiely fall 2014

 

looking back at the London Fashion Week, I couldn't help but wonder how I missed the Orla Kiely Fall 2014 collection. I'm a lover of vintage clothing and the line was the embodiment of retro chic. The clothing was unique and one of a kind. I would characterize my style as a mixture of many things, but i do enjoy vintage clothing. So, throwing it back to a 90's mixed with 60's vibe, here are some shots of the collection.
