Blue Skies

Hello Everyone,

I thought I might just do another reflection today, since I love it so much, and really want everyone to experience the world through my eyes, a beautiful world. It's been hard to just sit and pen my feelings, which is making my writing suffer. I haven't written a story since August,and while many might say"That's not a long time", it's really long for someone who loves writing stories like myself. I decided to title this Blog post "Blue Skies", simply because I was looking through my window and saw how majestic the mountains looked,how the clouds sit comfortably between the hills, and the soft, beautiful sound of the Birds. What really caught my attention was the clean, light Blue blanket above us. The white pillows  sit gently, and I could only breathe deeply and enjoy the scene.

It's so funny how simple things in life can make us feel so happy and rested. This week my Facebook and Twitter feed was flooded with news of Ebola, and some disturbing jokes about the highly infectious and deadly disease. Although this is as real as the hand I'm typing with, I wanted an escape from all that bad news, and so I turned off my computer and rolled on my side to gaze at the sky. Many may not have the Mountains to look at, but if you look up, then you will see the Blue, even if it's just a glimpse. Maybe you can take a walk to the nearest park, and just observe, you might see things that you might have passed while you were speedily walking to work, driving or seeing the skies through Instagram. Next time, remind yourself that it is real, and is right above you.

It never gets old for me to snap a few pictures while I gaze, because it's comforting to look at them while the Rain angrily beats the Earth, and the skies are Grey, which makes me a bit sad :)

I hope you enjoyed this and until next time:

Autumn Bundling :)

Hello :)

I hope you are having a wonderful time in whichever part of the world you are. Today I decided to share some of my personal favourites for the Autumn season. It is cold in the hills and we have to start taking out our blankets and pulling on our socks and sweaters. I am not complaining.

 I personally like the colder season, as I have mentioned a few times on this Blog. Enjoy these, and I hope they will inspire you, especially if you don't like when it gets a bit chilly.

  • Skincare:

My skin gets a bit dry during the colder seasons, so I have to use thicker creams. I use my soap right throughout the year because It just works better for me, and I still manage to keep my face moisturised, probably because it has Shea Butter.

Moisturizers: Aloe Vera Gel ( Any brand works) And Dermisa Skin Renewal and Protective Treatment


**A very simple daily skincare routine and just as effective :)

Body Lotion: Vaseline Cocoa Butter Lotion (This works wonders!). It is extremely moisturizing and penetrates the layers of the skin, like it promises!

  • Food:

Apart from my regular vegetarian meals (which you can find on this site). I enjoy cocoa with soy milk on cold mornings and nights

2 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa powder
Soy milk (Any milk of your choice)
Fill the mug with milk and add Cocoa, stir well

  • Clothes:

Leggings, sweaters, Jeans and long sleeved shirts all work well for me during the cold times. Visit my Pinterest Profile to view some Ideas.

  • Hair:

When it gets cold, my hair tends to limp and look lifeless. To avoid wearing a boring bun everyday, I try not to use too much hair products that will make it easy for my hair to look like a hot mess. For me, less is definitely more!

  • Comfort:

During Autumn, it rains frequently, so on those days when I am not at school, I like to curl up in bed with my big blanket and basically listen to the soothing sound of the rain and watch the drops hit in the Earth.

I hope these were helpful for you, this is my routine for Autumn, enjoy :)

Until next time:

A Recap of my week :)


My week was quite uneventful, I had assignments to plan and edit everyday and barely had time for myself. I was so exhausted that I found myself sleeping at 7 pm every night, and I would wake up at 10 and feel so tired as though I didn't get any rest a few hours ago. I am so happy though for the few gaps I have in between classes to chill and have a lil chat with my friends. It can really help to just talk with someone after staring at your computer screen for hours trying to find answers and understand those bloody essay questions. I am also happy for my sister who is only 2 years older than me, and the fact that we share the same interests. I look forward to our nightly conversations and her jokes :D. 

What I ate:

I basically ate crackers, fish nuggets and sweet peppers everyday because it was that good, now I cant even look at the crackers :/

What I read:

The prescribed texts for my courses which was quite boring, but a few chapters made me laugh and actually felt interested in pushing harder.

What did I listen to? (on repeat):

Don't: Ed Sheeran

Cool Kids: Echosmith

All about that Bass: Meghan Trainor

Where did I go:

School of course, but I got a bit of excitement on Thursday night which was the Annual Observer( A Jamaican newspaper) Take style out event. Every year, the stores offer great bargains for 5 hours between 5 and 10 pm. This year there were street dancers which made it even more exciting. I was a bit disappointed at some of the sales as we were basically paying the original price.


My friend celebrated his 25th birthday. The crew gave him a cake and sang him Happy Birthday which almost brought him to tears! :)

My week wasnt so eventful, but I enjoyed some days, especially the ones where I got to put my feet up and just laugh. I hope you all had an amazing week, and until next time:
