So it's 2020 - a year that every one of us has certainly anticipated; hoping in 2019 that THIS was going to be our year. I think it's safe to say that we never saw this turn of events coming. Most of us are experiencing a pandemic for the first time and we're all experiencing this situation from different views. As a medical doctor and essential worker, I've had so many mixed emotions that ranged from anxiety to depression to just plain frustration about having to come face t
These are some of the things you must experience when visiting the Caribbean island of St Lucia - "Let her inspire you". My friends and I have been trying to keep up with an annual girls trip since our last adventure to Barbados in 2018. This year, we decided that St Lucia was the island to cross off our bucket list. This was my first trip to St Lucia and I was super excited to explore the island and take in as much of the history and culture as I possibly could. And of cours
Locally crafted, organic, vegan, cruelty and paraben free with environmentally friendly packaging. These are just some of the amazing qualities of the Cedros Bay Cosmetics line. So have you heard of them? Well they're a line of products created in the beautiful Caribbean island of Trinidad by the company CGA Caribbean.

Ever wonder how some people always look chic and well dressed? I mean everywhere I turn whether it be Instagram, Pinterest, magazines or blogs; these women always look so sleek. I used to think that meant spending loads of money on multiple clothing items to achieve a similar look. But what I've realized is that investing in staple wardrobe items is a must. Investment pieces do mean that you have to pay more for great quality, so each item on its own may be pricey. However, b
The simple steps I use to create a glowy, sunkissed look that's perfect for a day at the beach! I feel so fortunate to live on an island, especially one that's in the Caribbean. There's something about the beach and being near the sea that brings me so much inner peace #thalassophile. Hence it's one of my go-to places to relax and unwind from the mundane activities of daily life. There's a notion that once you're going to the beach you shouldn't wear makeup. I think it just c
It's Carnival 2019 in sweet T&T and I have some time off from work. Nothing is more exciting than planning for a vacation, whether it be an overseas vacation or a staycation. This time around, my Bajan friends flew in to Trinidad for our friend's baby shower and to enjoy some of the festivities of the Carnival season #thegreatestshowonearth. As we were attending all of the same events, and just wanted to catch up and enjoy some good girl chat, we stayed together at a convenie
An overview of the past year; what I've learnt and how I can use those experiences to my advantage for 2019! I think each time a year ends, we find ourselves saying "Wow, this year flew by" and sometimes it does seem that way. But when looking back at the events of the past 12 months, are you happy with all that's happened? Did you wish things went differently? What life lessons did you gain? While we can attempt to plan out our year, we need to be mindful that life happens.
Getting to know the woman behind the blog on a more personal note. How do I even begin to write this piece? What am I gonna share? Will anyone gain anything from this? These are all questions I asked myself before even contemplating writing this post. It's not always usual for bloggers to show this part of themselves because their blog usually just focuses on the material elements. And while that's all fine, because those are the main aspects, do we ever really get to know th
