The inspiration for this week comes from a cute sign spotted in Barcelona on my birthday. Of course a picture had to be taken of this inspiring message. If this wasn’t meant to be for the blog.. Read it and believe it. Message of the week: Have a nice week full of smiles! Continue reading Monday Inspiration: Remember you are loved
Remember Keith Sweat ladies? This slow jam is a very catchy one and I felt it the moment I heard it. A love song that will brighten your day. Love a man who give all his love. This Saturday I give you an oldie from Keith Sweat ladies, the beautiful I’ll give all my love to you: Now after using the word love five times now, I hope … Continue reading Saturday Slow Jam: I’ll give all my love to you
While walking through the streets of Barcelona looking for nice stores to shop and unique items, I spotted some cool food themed bags at a shop called Kling. There was the Pop Corn bag, the Butter Flavor Cookies bag, The Danish Butter Cookies bag and my favourite the French Fries bag, Mc Donald’s style. Unfortunately the sales woman wouldn’t let me take pictures in the store after asking, so I took some from the outside so you could still see the bag because I wanted to share it with you. Continue reading “Spotted at Kling: The French Fries Bag”
This week I have a message that we all have heard of before. Not so sure who was the first one to say so, but I made my own version of it. Some people, including myself, can get caught up in the past and sometimes the future, while today is all we have for now. We need to be reminded to enjoy every moment of it. … Continue reading Monday Inspiration: Enjoy the present
Day 1 of Barcelona was a fun one since my two birthday guests arrived and I took them out to see the city a little bit. Of course I had to take them to La Rambla, the street to be when in Barcelona. When on La Rambla you have to visit La Boqueria as well, the market that always makes me so happy when I step … Continue reading Barcelona Trip Day 1
One thing you might not know about me is that I am a complete romantic at heart. For real I am a sucker for anything that has to do with romance, like watch chickflicks, read chicklits, watch love shows on television, listen to love shows on the radio and…slow jams. How I love me some slow jams. And you know that the black men are the Must Listen when it coms to slow jams. Those smooth voices and faces are so sexy, that I have to share some of the videos with my ladies. From this weekend on I want to start a new series called Saturday Slow Jam, where every Saturday I will share a selected R&B Slow Jam music video, new or old, depending on the mood I am in. Continue reading “Saturday Slow Jam: I need”
After a week in Barcelona, Spain, I am back home in the Netherlands and recharging from my vacation. Yesterday morning I arrived home and man I needed some rest. It was a fun week where I celebrated my 30th birthday, took part in the first fashion show of Caribbean Fashion Spot and even had a little get away to Lloret de Mar. What a week. Can’t believe it went by so fast. Like I said before, I wanted to take you on this trip with me, but sadly the wifi connection was so bad that every time I wanted to do a post it just didn’t happen, so sorry about that. Especially because I know that I said there would be a new post on the website everyday. Now I know that this is not always in my hands. And when I got home yesterday, I was too tired to post something. Continue reading “Back from Barcelona”
The inspiration for this week is a quote that even I can relate to. Remember that in life people will hurt you, rather it’s intentional or not. You have to know that you’ve got the strength within you to survive it all. Quote of the week: Have a wonderful week full of strength! Continue reading Monday Inspiration: The turning point
Today I’m celebrating my 30th birthday. With the strength of the Lord I am happy I made it to this day. We started this day celebrating my new years eve at a club in Barcelona and danced the night away. Right now I’m about to head to the beach and spend the rest of the afternoon there chilling and enjoying the cool ocean wind and … Continue reading It’s my 30th Birthday!
Hola from Barcelona. It is so good to be back here. Every time I’m in Barcelona I do feel like I’m on holiday for sure. The temperatures, the sun, the breeze, the palm trees, the whole enchilada. Barcelona, te quiero mucho. After a good night of sleep and a good lunch I was ready to take on Barcelona yesterday. Like I told you in my previous post I’m here to celebrate my birthday and, besides from my sister who lives in Barça and my mom who came with me, I invited two special guests with me to come join me for this long Birthday Weekend. City, Beach, Sun and Fun. That’s the theme of my party this year. Also I’m here for the first fashion show of Caribbean Fashion Spot that is going down on Sunday, October 12 in club Shoko.

This season chunky boots are making a comeback. Everywhere you look these shoes are present. Last week, while looking for a birthday dress in downtown Amsterdam, I came across some very cool ones at River Island. You can get them in different colours but mostly in black, with or without cutouts, or straps. The chunky boots are very trending right now and the perfect pair of shoes for fall/winter. For sure I’m going to get myself a pair. Continue reading “Spotted at River Island: The chunky boots”
