30 Years Around The Sun

As soon as February 18, 2019 ended, I was faced with the reality that 2019 was going to be my last year being 20+. I knew then I had to make the best of being Twenty Nine and that I did and that I did *winks* (more on this later).  Last year I wanted to…

Seven Months to Twenty Nine

7 months ago I had an idea of making my 29th birthday one for the books. I wanted something unlike my usual dinner and or trip. I wanted a tea party. Sounds a bit lame when you think about it. But, I didn’t want just any tea party, I wanted it to be very posh,…

Liam Neeson Is Guilty And Piers Morgan Is Still No Ally

Another day, another ‘shocking‘ reveal. Why is it February, Black History Month, and we are trying to decide whether a white man, admitting he wanted to kill any Black man he came across, was a racist thought to have? Then again, would it even be a true Black History Month without some type of controversy, involving a white person?…

Pops for Christmas

It’s that time of year again, Christmas. I’m always excited for Christmas because there’s always something new to look forward to. As usual I did my Christmas card photoshoot a month ago with the help of a very good friend, Dani (Check out her instagram if you are a cat lover). I had a theme in mind…

Guiltless: It’s Not Selfish To Choose You

How I Learnt How To Live With Distance In March of this year, I took a trip to see my family in America. What I didn’t expect were the type discussions I’d be having with some relatives while on this trip. I usually have a detailed itinerary of what I plan to do, even when I’d take…

The Other Side Of The #MeToo Movement

For months, I’ve been wrestling with whether or not I should write this blog, from fear of massive public annihilation. However, in light of the lastest controversy surrounding Henry Cavill’s statement in a recent interview with GQ Australia, I feel the timing couldn’t be more perfect or worse depending on how you take this. In short, Henry…

In Love With Warupan

A few months ago I did an interview with Jiri Mills, the creative force behind the character, Warupan. (See interview here) While talking with Jiri, I could see the passion and enthusiasm he has for Warupan. As a lover of pandas, I was happy with what I heard. The question of when he’d have merchandise available for sale arose. As promised, Warupan sweatshirts and caps…

Thought I’d Make A Christmas Ad

Christmas has always been my favourite holiday of the year. I get to see family members I wouldn’t normally see throughout the year, catch up with friends of old and new and most importantly (for me at least) I take the time to appreciate the joys of life. This Christmas will be the second time…

Asians Are Unsexy Nerds, Blacks Are Brutes

Haha! I paused. Laughing before writing this piece. I didn’t think I needed to but in light of recent events, I decided to go for it.  A few days ago a Facebook user shared a video which spoke to how Asian men are represented in Hollywood. The video showed clippings from an interview where women shared their…

Of BREXIT and Of War and all these things

It is indeed a sad day. It is with no happy announcement that anyone can talk about this whole BREXIT mess. War is coming, if not already on our doorsteps. The Pound is already sliding, which may eventually lead to unrest within Britain, its former colonies that still depend on it (Jamaica included) and the…
