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.

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
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!

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.
- -This is the way the nut appears on the tree.
- -The nut is then placed in the sun to dry.
- -The almonds are cracked open using an hammer or stone.
- The nut is removed and ready to eat.
- 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.
Mom and I, oh so serious....
-Joaquin and this cute lil baby girl....
-Maxi skirt worn as dress, belted with a faux leather white belt and black shrug with white sandals. I took the black and white thing to a whole new level, matching handbag and jewelry- my Juicy Couture set,pendant and charm on the bracelet, black and white! (Juicy necklace, bracelet).
BTW... the photographer is my son!!! LOL. He's obsessed with gadgets!
Shrug: Eileen West-Gifted

Joaquin's wearing- Pants -Kenneth Cole, Shoes-Kenneth Cole, Shirt-Hangten.
For Ann-Marie's funeral I wore.... Poncho- Carmin LA, Pants- Bitten, Purse-XOXO and my retro Chanel sunglasses.
Then after a few days, I went with mom to get her a dress for a beach wedding......
...and we walked, and walked , and then we were really tired. Joaquin and I took a break.
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.
