Bring on fall!

My favourite season is summer. But, this summer was questionable. Don’t get me wrong–I had fun, but it rained all the dang time. All. The. Time. The rain fell and during the most inconvenient times–like my first time playing mas at Toronto Caribbean Festival (or whatever they call it now), but that’s another story.  I…

Let’s do this again!

So I’ve started and restarted and restarted this blog. And here we go again. My challenge with writing was finding the time to do it. Between work, family and the kids–and their schedules–it was really hard to find the time to sit down and write. And what to write about. And would anyone care? My…

Priorities, priorities – #OACFuel4Fire

If you’ve read the blog over the last few weeks, you’ll see that I’ve decided to put out my writing. To get your thoughts about it, but also to challenge myself a lot. Why? My life has changed completely since I first started writing years ago. I got married and had two girls. Those are…

We were going to some new  restaurant in downtown Toronto, Lavender, supposedly a rapper owns it. hopefully, the food is better than his rhymes. Seeing I hadn’t been out in…

I’m back…:)

Yo fam! It’s been a while! One marriage, two kids,  Pops’ death, new house,locs and plenty of things have happened over the last five years. I’ve started and sputtered to a stop with writing and blogging. It’s been hard, I can’t lie. Some days sliding into bed is the most creative thing I can conjure…

Sigh

Ok. I owe pictures of my hair. I owe product reviews of products I bought donkey years ago. But, folks, my mind is clouded. Should I go ahead with my locs or just should I cut it all off? My reasoning: my hair just isn’t feeling right. Not “oh, I need a protein treatment” wrong,…

Bad salon practices…

There is a reason why I hate salons. Not all salons, just the badly managed ones. I had made an appointment with the salon that had straightened my hair for March 7 back in December. I decided to loc my hair, so that appointment is no longer needed. So I called the salon to cancel….

Loc’ing it up!

First of all, happy Valentines Day to those of you who celebrate it. As I always say: “if it’s a real holiday, give me the day off.” Since I’ve had the entire year off, I guess I should hush my mouth and eat a chocolate. Anyhoo, here’s the post 🙂 Over the past year, I…
