Being on social media 24/7 for the last few years of my life, has been amazing. I’ve had so many amazing opportunities, gotten to work with brands I never thought I would be able to work it, travelled and of course, my fave & most worth it part- meeting & talking to amazing readers & viewers. Even if you’re not a blogger/YouTuber, you have to admit that social media has its perks. I am truly grateful. But as with everything else, there’s a dark side that most people never get to see.
For ages now, I wanted a series on my blog that was different from something that I ever did before. Then it hit me. I love hearing stories about inspiring, kick-ass, strong women and how they slay at life. That’s where the idea of a #BossBabes series came about. I’m gonna feature interviews with independent, amazing women so that you can hear their stories and be inspired- just like I am by them.
Now onto my first feature!
Play mas in Trinidad & Tobago’s Carnival: check.
This year, I got the opportunity to work with Passion Carnival to have a full on Carnival experience. I had no idea what to expect on the road for Carnival Monday & Tuesday but I was definitely up for experiencing what they call “the greatest show on earth”. P.S. if you’re not sure what Carnival is, you can read more about it here or here.
Organization and being organized is something that I always struggled with. I’m the kinda gal who’s really organized on paper but in real life (hello #planneraddict), my desk is mess and things are ALL over the place. I can tell you everything you need to know about planning 101 and how to use a planner and get everything done. But when it comes to keeping my vanity clean for ONE day- it’s a disaster. Like honestly when you’re beating your face, how tf are you supposed to put everything back as you use it. Am I right or am I right?
I finally came to the conclusion that I just need to put certain things into practice in order for me to actually be more organized in life – not just in my mind or my planner.
I love anything red and with a hint of spice- especially for Valentine’s Day. These sugar cookies are a perfect yummy treat because it’s so simple to make. I’m sure you have a sugar cookie recipe that you use already. So the secret is to just add a few drops of (drum roll please) red food colouring to give you a marbled effect or a sexy red colour throughout the cookie. My next big secret is to add a sprinkle of cinnamon & nutmeg to any recipe you have. It instantly kicks everything up a notch and trust me, everyone enjoys that unexpected surprise.
