Christmas in the city: Nordstrom

Hey fam! I’ve been thinking of you! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve written. I’ve been putting my focus on some other things–like launching my Etsy store–support a sister if you can!–and organizing my house. If you want to keep up with me on a more regular basis, follow me on Instagram. Anyhow, if…

Big tings gwan — Sweet Lime is open

I’ve been MIA for a bit, but it’s been for a purpose. I launched my Etsy store: Sweet Lime Culture. Lemme give you some background on the store. I am Canadian, born and raised, on the ice rink is where I spent most of my days. Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool, and all freezing at…

Friday fun: Food

I have become the type of person who is happy to make plans, then suffers regret when I have to show up to these plans. It’s not that I don’t want to spend time with my friends–it’s just that the energy that needs to be expended to go out is sometimes too much. That is,…

Five scary movies you need to watch

Happy Halloween! Once you get back from trick or treating and the outside lights are off, you may feel like getting your spooky on. So, what should you watch? My ratings: Lights off – creepy, but you can handle it. You’re grown. Lights on – you will cry from fear. Leave those lights on and…

Black lace + loc knots + sequins

On Friday, the Hubby, my sister-in-law, KT, and I attended a birthday party for the father of a close friend. I’ll be honest, I don’t get to dress up often. I push to wear makeup once a week: Sundays for church. I may dash something on my face during the week if I’m doing more…

Friday fun: Happy Halloween!

My parents were never into Halloween. The labelled it “some kind of North American nonsense.” In Barbados, there was no Halloween. No one in the district was showing up at your house, dressed up like a duppy, asking for candy. Nope, that’s some straight-up North American stuff. When I was small my parents took me…

When you’re trying to clean up…

…and your two-year-old is home and awake. You get nothing done. Try as I might, when Daughter #2 is around and I’m trying to do something, forget it. It’s not happening. Put on a movie, she’s entertained for all of five minutes, then she runs into the room and says, “what you doing, Mommy?” Child,…

From old to new again

When my father passed away last year, my mom decided to move in with me–and that meant combining households. Mom had a lot of stuff. Some I loved and some I was like, “nah, I don’t think that would go with the house.” Mom was good about it, but there were some pieces that she…

The fall decor massacre

I woke up Saturday morning expecting to take Daughter #2 to her weekly swimming lesson and then to go for lunch with some friends. Daughter #1 was still sick, but her fever had broken. We rescheduled our family plans until she was 100% better. A regular Saturday and quiet weekend…until I opened my front door. What…

Fun Fridays!

Anyone who knows me, knows I can be silly–and a bit random. So, Fridays will be that day of the week when I can freely speak nonsense about all the random stuff that I encounter throughout the week.   The kids are sick. Lawd, give me strength. It seems like every three weeks or so,…

The evolution of my hair

Editor’s note: Imma tell you now, this post is FULL of gratuitous shots of me in variations of hair. Even though I wasn’t posting anything, I was taking lots of pictures. Just so you know 🙂  Years and years and years ago when I started my little blog, The Accidental Natural, it was a hair…
