Four eyes…


If you need visual assistance like me then maybe you can remember back to the days when you first found out you had to get glasses. I was so afraid of being teased that I would avoid wearing them until it was absolutely necessary.

My first pair were these cute little pink spectacles which I only needed in order to see far away. Following those were numerous pairs that I would wear occasionally through my awkward high school stage. It wasn’t until college that I really bought a pair that I liked (yes, they were pretty randy indeed); which was a good thing because that’s about the time when my glasses became more of a necessity than an option.

I got tired of glasses though, and finally upgraded to contacts which I primarily wear. But every once in a while my eyes need a rest from the contacts. That leads me to the main point of this post. Two words: Zenni Optical.

Trying to mix it up a bit…


This past week I took advantage of the tax-free weekend here in Atlanta. Boy, did I take advantage. It was a great opportunity to do what I set out to do which is update my wardrobe so that it truly represents who I am. Too deep? What can I say, I’m a very introspective person that thrives off of self-reflection.

Anyway, back to what I was saying. I found a lot of great deals including the four pairs of shoes that are pictured here. My bill was $41 and some change, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

I can’t wait to wear these.

These are a nice neutral color to compliment my outfits.

Everyone loved my floral flats.

Sacrificing for “it”


Sacrifice: a loss or something you give up, usually for the sake of a better cause.

Consistent: the same throughout in structure or composition.


One thing I’ve come to realize is that in order to make “it,” you’ve got to be consistent and you’ve got to make some sacrifices.

A couple of days ago I was having a conversation with one of my best friends. We were discussing an Olympics commercial that we saw in which various athletes mentioned something they’ve had to sacrifice and how long they’ve had to sacrifice to make it to the Olympics.

I remember two statements in particular where a guy said he did not order dessert for two years. Another person said they hadn’t watched tv in six months. I don’t know about you, but both would be pretty hard for me.

Happy Birthday JAMAICA!!!!


Everything is Irie (that means all good) with me as I sit here thinking about how I will celebrate the 50th anniversary celebration of Independence for my home land. Although I left when I was a wee little tike, I still feel a close connection to my roots and I am very proud of my heritage. My family has made a temporary exodus to Jamrock, and as I type they are most likely visiting other family members and enjoying all the festivities that my little island has to offer. But, what can I say? Duty calls and I had to stay here in the states for work. So what shall I do today? Maybe I will pay homage by listening to a couple of Bob Marley or Peter Tosh albums from my dad’s collection. I just love the feeling of nostalgia that is brought on when static sounds emanate from the vinyl record as it spins underneath the delicate needle that sings its songs. I do know this much, I will definitely be showing my patriotism through my love of fashion. While searching to find unique items out there that could display my love for my country, I came across these cute items on Etsy.com. This site is always my go-to when I want to find something unique or original.
