I don’t like putting up outfit posts when I’m not really going anywhere cause I’m not one of those fashion bloggers with a big shopping budget. I need to wear my clothes again and again! So If you see me out in this cute little polka-dot top, forget you saw it online
It tickles me to write that headline because one of my friends was just ranting on twitter how we celebrate all these foreign holidays in Jamaica without even knowing the significance of them, and also without knowing the significance behind some of our very own holidays. Very valid point aside, we surely do have a weekend of parties happening in Negril for Memorial Weekend (we celebrate Labour Day that weekend actually and the two holidays are totally not related) and I chose to write about this event because I was recently introduced to the band Acmatic and I like them. I think being on a concert with Jillionaire is the perfect pairing for them because that is the vibe I got from their concert.
I shared this article on my social media pages and it got so much traction that I wanted to share it one more time for all the folks in the back. It’s an article called 8 Foods People Think Are Healthy (But Aren’t) and while all 8 points are definitely valid and worth committing to, one point stuck out more for me than the others because I’ve been tryna tell y’all to cook with coconut oil!
Well, it’s Monday afternoon now but since the post I had planned for today is nowhere near begun as yet, I thought I’d do this fun little post. I follow a blog simply called Makeup and Beauty Blog, by a delightful woman named Karen, more for her spirit than makeup cause I’m not much of a makeup girl and she has a poll she does every Monday on her blog. In the spirit of Ask.fm and all these inquisitive things that are currently on trend I though this was a cuter way to get to know each other so, here goes!
Random awesome pic from my awesome Mothers Day weekend
I don’t post much music here but I must admit I’m a huge Eve fan ever since her Ruff Riders days and I’ve been one of those awaiting her return. The She Bad Bad single that she released earlier was ok, but this right here? This is it
It’s even more fun with our own Miss Kitty doing her bit at the end there isn’t it? Rae gwaan Miss Kitty wid di tight and bright lalalalalalalalala (I hate it when she does this) lalalalalalala
The plan was to do a weekly review of this season of Misison Catwalk but catching it on a Saturday Night at 8:30pm is not always possible and Mission Catwalk adds the episodes online whenever they feel like it so you just gotta wait till…well…they feel like it. I guess it takes time to edit it with ads and stuff that we’re just gonna skip right through. Any how even though episode 3 has already aired, which I surely didn’t catch and will try to watch the repeat on Tuesday, here’s the recap of episode 2. They were to design menswear, something new for Mission Catwalk, and it would be a piece for Grammy winning artist Shaggy. Now, in my opinion, Shaggy isn’t hard to design for. Stick to layers, neutrals, not too polished, rugged, sexy and you’ll be fine. Some of these designers missed that memo and decided that Shaggy should switch up his look. So they chucked the look-book that was given to them to familiarize themselves with Shaggy’s comfort zone and came up with pieces like this:
Now I know why this particular designer was so interested in hearing my review of episode 2! Now, while it is a fabulous look in and of itself and I agree with the judges that it has star appeal, can you see our easy-going, roots-rocking, laugh-loving Mr. Boombastic in this? There’s a laugh! David, you completely ignored your subject and went for your own design. Good luck with that…
Yum yum! My dinner was so good that I had to share. I’ve been purchasing chicken mince in the supermarket for a couple of months now because sometimes it’s much more convenient to pan-fry quickly for a mid-week meal and sometimes it works even better than chicken breast cubes, like for my pasta dishes. I also started to buy farm fresh pesto from Food Basket recently and decided that since I was also buying some of the same herbs they’re putting in the pesto, maybe I should just make my own! So I made a basil pesto over the weekend. Really simple, it was just basil, olive oil, salt, pepper and walnuts in my food processor. But pesto is something new to me, I only ever knew it used as a pasta sauce so I started to wonder what else I could use it to do, especially since I’m trying to give pasta a rest to work on this tummy. Enter, tonight’s dinner.
