Hi Everyone! 
Hope you guys are having a great week so far, balancing everything and then some. I can't wait for my kids to be off school - I need a break from these early mornings
 (anyone else with me?) 
I've made some new changes to the blog, let me know what you guys think - every day I learn something new from my friend at Quaint of Heart, she's truly my blog angel.

This post is for my cousins, Peta-Gaye and Marrion, who are constantly asking me for outfits with flat shoes- since I have very little flat shoes, I'm hoping they can get some inspiration from these inspiration boards. Good luck ladies!

Thanks for reading my blog, and if so inclined please share this post on facebook.

Green Sheer Maxi




 
 Hi Everyone! 
My friend Dani at Quaint of Heart said I should post even when I don't think the outfits are great, just post them anyway. Just a quick post of what I wore yesterday while working on a new project. Yes, friends  sometimes I do work in high heels and my feet hate me for it. 


 Skirt & Necklace: Shimmer Kingston // Bag: Mango Special Edition // Shoes: Steve Madden



 Had an early lunch at Grogge Shoppe at Devon House after shooting these photos because I was so hungry, and they were the only ones opened at 11:30. I was thrilled to find this place and surprised that I've never been to this oasis tucked so neatly away. 

The waterfall transported us and I suppose would drown out background noise on busy evenings. Spoke briefly with the owner and she told us she was hosting a Bar-b-Que last night (Wednesday). She mentioned also, that there are live performances on Friday nights weather permitting. Will definitely check it out soon, and you should too ;)

Have a great day! Smile, it's almost Friday!

She's Got Style! : Tamara Chloe

Hi Everyone! 

Hope everyone is having a great week so far :) Today I'm introducing you to a beautiful and fashionable blogger Tamara Chloe - who is another entry in my 'She's Got Style' series. 

Tamara hails from the Netherlands and embraces vibrant colours with whimsical sophistication. I've been following her for a while on Instagram and I am always amazed at how beautiful she looks in her perfectly styled photographs; it was no surprise to learn that she is such a respected blogger because she takes every detail into thought.

Read more and learn in my interview what inspires this fashionista...

NOW TRENDING: White Shoes

Hi Everyone! 

Have you heard? White shoes are huge for Spring! Phew, do you remember when it was once a fashion faux pas to wear white shoes? Gotta love fashion huh? I can't wait for crocs to become high fashion! :p 

Yesterday I read that Sarah Jessica Parker, famous for her love of Manolo Blahnik's and Jimmy Choo's is now reporting damage to her feet because of her love for high heels.  I wonder if I should learn from her mistake? who am I kidding? I can't give up my heels, my height forbids it. Like in everything else in life, moderation is key, wear in moderation or like me, only during photo shoots ;) 

Below are some white shoes that have caught my eye, and are making it easier for me to embrace this trend.

She was fierce strong and brave.

 Thanks for reading everyone, I really appreciate the support and  positive feedback I've been getting through emails, texts and your kind comments here. 

For a quick smile watch this video to see a hip grandma dancing her heart away, while sporting a cool mint green ensemble I might add ;) 

Have a great Monday and God bless.

Floral Edge




Hi Everyone! 
I was on Smile Jamaica Weekend this past Saturday showing my DIY ring box and some other jewelry storage tips using household items. After the show I shot some photos of what I wore so I could share it with you here in case you missed it live.

I got this lovely floral sheer blouse from Flirt Boutique as I wanted something cheerful and bright which would pop on camera (and more importantly hide my arms) :p It has my favourite Spring colours mint green and coral and I can't wait to wear this with some white shorts and wedges on my upcoming vaction; gotta go get one of  those lovely Panama hats I saw at Flirt the other day too.

For accessories I went with a gold chain link necklace
รก la Versace to offer some edge to the look and also to keep it more casual for a weekend show.

Here's hoping everyone is having a great Sunday so far and looking forward to a productive week ahead. If you're in Jamaica make sure to get a copy of tomorrow's Gleaner for the Flair Magazine to see a photo-shoot that I was the stylist on. 

I'm leaving you with one of my favourite quotes that I read occasionally to get me pumped for a full work week:



There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure. Colin Powell

For Olivia Pope

Hey Everyone! 

So I spent the last two weekends watching every episode of Scandal and I decided to do an outfit post in honour of Ms.Olivia Pope. I love a strong and powerful woman with a hint of vulnerability. She has a very successful career but such a dysfunctional personal life, it's quite endearing. Oliva Pope is well traveled, wealthy and sophisticated so it's no surprise she only wears the best. Her closet is seamless, clean and polished. A light colour palette with emphasis on texture and fit. - Most importantly- Olivia Pope has nothing to prove. 




 Blazer: DOLCE & GABANNA // Top : GUCCI // Pants: Balmain (sold out) 
 Bag: Hermes  Shoes: YSL 
Watch: Movado //Necklace: Van Cleef & Arpels // Earrings: Bony Levy 
Lipstick : Napoleon Perdis Polish: Dior // Eye Palette: NARS
