Closet Inspiration

I have a rhyme and it goes a little something like this:
I’m gonna have one of this closets
just so I could stack my s**t and sit in it.
I’m gonna have one of these closets
For my nick nacks and gifts packs.
I’m gonna have one of these closets
’cause it’s just the wickedest.
LOL….sorry I had a corny moment. But, I love these closets.

All The Way In Essex UK

DSC_9426

This picture was taken all the way in Essex, UK. We took a ride to the sea side. My girlfriend/sista, Yolande (putting her on blast) is a huge fan of The Only Ways Essex reality show in the UK. So, her ravings got me keen on the Essex trip idea. Loved it and had a blast.

All set for the Boldher 2014 Conference, hosted by Susan Vernicek, founder of Identity Magazine and author, life coach & founder of Inspired Girl, Jennifer Tuma Young.

It was all about Bold women stepping forward and living their truth in business and their personal lives. Their stories were riveting and resourceful. It was a fabulous, informative, inspirational event, which I especially needed to rev up my rusting engines.

Canterbury Tales

DSC_9337

While in the UK, I visited the historical cathedral city of Canterbury. This was big for me, since one of my favorite books is the Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer. The book chronicles the journey of a group of men and women on pilgrimage to Canterbury to visit the shrine of Saint Thomas a’ Becket.

The city was lovely, and I had great time with my Zoe, Jenna and Michelle. All good in the UK.

Kool Kimono

Kimono

I’ve always loved clothing that are bigger than me. It must be something about the way they flow over my body. And kimonos are definitely bigger than me. So, of course I loved this kool kimono.

This particular kimono reminded me of a time, when I was a teenager, and I sewed myself a floral, print coat (it’s what I called it then) to wear out to the carnival festivities. Mind you I grew up in the tropics of Trinidad & Tobago. So, I did take the hot climate into consideration and used light cotton fabric.

I remember quite clearly, pairing up the floral pink & green print with bubble gum leggings, (80′s term for ribbed leggings) which I had purchased in Venezuela.

Folks stared at me like I was from Mars. I could see the “who is the weirdo?” questioning look in their eyes. And, if you know anything about carnival, you’d know that the less you wear the better. Especially with the blazing hot sun and sweating from all the whining ( dance that requires the 360 degree movement of your hip). All I cared about was showcasing my sick sense of style, and that did not include a two piece masquerade costume or daisy dukes (pum, pum shorts).

Who would think I get to do it all over again. No carnival this time, but the sun was just as hot. Pairing with shorts and a tee were the perfect way to stay cool and look kimono kool.

Repurposed Jumper

DSC_9885

So i’ve had this here jumper for 10 years. I love the style, the color and the fit. I’ve worn it – at most – 4 times. Today seemed like the perfect day to jump into the gorgeous green number. And it did not fail. I felt just at awesome wearing it as I did when I was 32 years old. Man I tell you, forty two feels freakin’ fantastic. Maybe I’ll hold on to it for another 10 years. We’ll see what 52 brings.
