Awwwwww

Hey Peeps.
I know its been like a super long time since I've said anything  about anything here. I still really don't have time for this, but there is just this pull that I've been resisting thus far. But I probably really need this. Its cheaper than therapy at least. Have you ever had a time in your life when you just wanna scream, just let go and scream???? I'm having on e of those times now. I feel so strained, pressured, tired, and its like everything, everything in my life just decided to go wrong. Called it quits on me, all at the same time.... help????
Share with me???
Whoever believes in prayer please pray for me.
Thank you....

James Bond Beach...

So the hubby took me to the beach (at my insistent prodding and poking). 


The newest addition to my bathing suit wardrobe that I just had to wear come rain or shine, it rained! LOL.
Swimsuit: St. Tropez, Necklace: Gifted, Jelly gladiator sandals: Apple Bottoms

My hubby getting ready for a swim.
Sexy-fied!
                                               And ..........VOGUE!
 A better view of a swimming area........ James Bond Beach, Oraccabessa, St. Mary, Jamaica.

Green Grotto Caves Attractions...

I'm feeling a lil' better today, since the pics loaded. These  are the pics that I took, or some of them, @ the Green Grotto Caves Attractions in St. Ann, Jamaica. I haven't been there since I was a lil' kid! Good being back! Ched, our Guide, was hilarious! He made a potentially boring tour, though punctuated with historical facts, fun. I didn't know that caves are alive! But yes they are...they continue to grow... Thanks Ched! Inside the caves can be a little creepy if you're scared of things like bats, snakes etc. But they're pretty harmless....(yeah, whatever!) Inside being dank and eerily cool and quites, except for the bats and a few other weird sounds. In a weird lil' way, I enjoyed myself! Thanks to my boo, who persuaded me to try something different! Totally worth it!

-This is the entrance of the Green Grotto Caves

 
The guide thought that this looked like a pilllar of salt! Lot's wife????


The Tour-Guide and I, he's super funny!
Point of interest in the caves.....



 
BATSSS!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY SCARY!
****Its not the first place you'd think of visiting on the island, but it was totally worth the visit. Being that the Green Grotto Caves Attractions is located in St. Ann, it's pretty close to just about everything. Accomadations, the Dunn's River Falls, beaches galore, casual eateries,everything! This cave is a hidden gem of the Caribbean.


Point to note:The filming of the 1973 James Bond film Live and Let Die, used the caves for villain Doctor Kananga's underground base beneath a cemetery on the fictional island of San Monique. It is most memorable for being the location where Bond (played for the first time by Roger Moore) kills Kananga (played by Yaphet Kotto) by forcing him to swallow a bullet of compressed air, causing him to float up to the ceiling like a balloon and explode.[1]
Ian Fleming's original novel had the villain using the real-life Jamaican caves as part of his SMERSH-funding smuggling operation. (Point to note excerpt courtesy of Wikipedia.com)

More updates

So, my hubby is back! Yippee! I now have my old Photographer back too. I missed him in both capacities! He took back for me a bag-full of goodies! 2 Cameras,( I can now take much better pics! Yea!), Perfume, Bath and body products, Ipod, A newer blackberry (not the one I wanted but....he did get me a professional type cam! Hey!), novels, Utilitarian stuff for work and yes himself, new and improved it seems. Can you see me grinning??? Its from ear to ear! LOL.
    The day after he came home, which is Sunday, we decided to run down to the north coast and do a little touristy thing. WE visited the Green Grotto Caves, so full of  history and just a tad bit scary! But fun!
So below are a few of the pics from the caves............ENJOY!
I'm sorry.... maybe later. For some reason this stupid thing wont upload. Maybe later

Blah Blah Blah

Hey!! Its been a little while since I've posted and when I did get the chance to, it was always in a hurry. Long and short of it all, this is just mainly a photo post showing a few outfits that I wore over the past few days, weeks....


A friend of mine decided to launch an opening of second store that retails mainly fashion jewelry and other accessories. Of course I attended! It was a fab evening! Lovely affair.

My hubby is back in the island, thank god! I was getting really bored of that much me time! So I wore a maxi-dress to go pick him up at the airport but didn't get the chance to take a pic. Was running late.... same goes for the outfit I decided to wear when he took me out for dinner that same night! Awww-shucks! I was just too excited and stuff. Being so happy that he's back! I wore an orange over-sized blouse with jeggings and my new favorite Apple Bottoms Jelly gladiator sandals to dinner..... I will try to get pics of them too some other time. Just keep posted.

It is but a few minutes to midnight here and I've decided that, just as it is with the night to day transition, and from summer to autumn...I have yet another transition to make. My wardrobe needs some attention. Trust me when I say that there are pieces that I've purchased years ago that I have yet to wear! I'm gonna change that!
What better time for change than the very time you may need an intervention? No unnecessary spending! The stores are calling. So tempted to go shopping... Over the weeks to come, I will be more focused on wearing those forgotten pieces. Anyone who suffers from the same ailment??? You're welcomed to try. At the end of it all, of course Im going be exchanging or giving stuff away or just donate them to charity. Now thats a good idea.
I'm challenging myself... and it starts right now! Wish me luck.

Playing Catch up

Playing Catch-up....

Over the weekend, I was back in the rural parts of the country, the parish I'm from originally,Portland (in Jamaica). So I was back in my old home, in my old bed, staring at my old ceiling and doing all the glorious old stuff. There is a tropical nut I love (some ppl will call this nut a fruit, because the skin can be eaten), almond and the grapes by the sea that I haven't had in over 10 years! I totally over indulged! Hahahaha! But I don't regret a minute of it.
  1. -This is the way the nut appears on the tree.
  2. -The nut is then placed in the sun to dry.
  3. -The almonds are cracked open using an hammer or stone.
  4. The nut is removed and ready to eat.
  5. Below is the stone I used at home and yep, that's me without the make-up and cute outfits. Haha.

Below are the beloved grapes. Purple ones are ripe and ready to be devoured!
My son refused to have any, he says they are not grapes! My fault! He doesn't know the local grapes.

The day of the funeral....

On the day of the funeral I wore the basic black skirt (Isaac Mizrahi), a black sleeveless blouse (Mossimo), my animal print belt (Rampage), gladiator platforms (Jessica Simpson), Vintage Chanel sunglasses and my checkered Louis Vuitton bag (I know its ancient but I love it!).

I was told only after being on my way to the funeral that I should've worn cheerful colours…I borrowed a pink pin! LOL.

Funeral no.2

And the day of the funeral....

On the day of the funeral I wore the basic black skirt (Isaac Mizrahi), a black sleeveless blouse (Mossimo), my animal print belt (Rampage), gladiator platforms (Jessica Simpson) and my checkered Louis Vuitton bag (I know its ancient but I love it!).

More of the same

It was Wednesday, the day before my friend's funeral, that I decided to journey to my "village" to pay my last respects to my dear friend Marie. And of course, in true "Fabulista" fashion, I had already chosen my outfit when the weather changed. It began to rain cats and dogs. Hmmm...slight problem if I was traveling alone and if I wasn't taking the bus. Haaa!!! Damn! You know I had to change what I had planned to wear. I settled for my fave jeggings, (yes you've seen it before!) an oversized tee (which you've also seen before), a white belt and a fab pair of white jelly wedges. How delish!

Over-sized tee: H&M, Hobo: Louis Vuitton, Jeggings: Express, Jelly Wedges: 2Go USA( IDK what this is, just loved the wedges for a wet day, paid just $6 for them.)
Get a better look of this wedge....

Latest happenings

A lot has been happening since I posted my last blog. I'm on my vacation, as I've stated several times before, but its no picnic. I have lost three people . My dear cousin and two girlfriends in a matter of weeks. It has, as to be expected, taken a toll on me and what I may or may not do now. Subsequently, I mostly stayed home and turned into a couch potato and yes, have gained a few extra extra pounds as a result. Alas, I'm slowing getting out of this slump.

Most of my day's were spent fixing jigsaw puzzles with my son, reading magazines, (what's happening to my girl Tori Spelling!) and watching television. Right now, I can barely keep my eyes open long enough to finish typing. Ugh! Thank God for spell-check!

I have yet to walk the beaches, which isn't 5 minutes walk from my house. How pathetic!

Everything, however, will be okay in a few more days. My cousin was laid to rest on Sunday. One friend will be buried on Thursday and the other? The date has not yet been set.
Annmarie was that cousin that was so cute, cool and quite. I miss her already. R.I.P. Ann-marie.

You're gone girl, but definitely not forgotten.

My life for the past 2 weeks are as follows:
  • Games with my son
  • Talks with my mom
  • Pray for longer days
The Games- Car games and Bike Games with my son online.
As far as jigsaw puzzles go, we do Spongebob, Pluto (@ disney), and Mickey Mouse.




Outfits Later......
