Ginger…

IMG_20190308_085103_879

Me and both of my kids were getting severely beat up by the flu and some serious cold symptoms for about 2 weeks. I did try a little bit of secular medicine, but what really did the trick was ginger. Lots and lots of strong ginger tea. The kids were not the biggest fans, because I made the tea really strong, but even they had to admit how much better it made them feel within minutes of drinking it.

Revisiting Mutamba… (Colourful Memories)

P

A few years ago, I had the privilege of meeting fashion designer Jackie Cohen Hope, wife to legendary Mutabaruka, the Jamaican Rastafari dub poet, musician, actor, educator, and talk-show host. I was fortunate to receive an invite to their beautiful home in Jamaica through a mutual friend and picked up a few fabulous pieces, through one of the best shopping experiences I’ve ever had. I bought this beautiful printed dress, which is nothing short of timeless. I love it more now, than I did then during its initial purchase, close to eight years ago..

This is me at their home, when I first tried on the dress. I got this piece along with these 2 other pieces below…

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Jackie & Muta again, at my own fashion show experience during Caribbean Fashion Week in Jamaica, when I participated in 2013… see link below

A Vintage Touch…Polaroids..

polaroid 4

I’d wanted to get a Polaroid camera for a few years but for some reason or another, never could. At the end of last year, my timing and finances were miraculously in sync, considering how broke Christmas can make us. I bit the bullet and decided to officially buy one for myself as a Christmas gift. When I was searching online, I had no idea that there were quite a few choices for these types of cameras, so I watched a couple of  Youtube video reviews and decided on the Polaroid One Step 2 I-Type. I’m just getting familiar with it, but I’m loving the fact that I can have a physical copy of a moment in my hands. I’m actually going to buy an album. I haven’t bought one of those things in years.
