Project 52 - NOVEMBER

// A sky full of one of my favourite clouds on an early morning.

// The national museum old glass collection, so beautiful! Yes?

// My attempt at an ornament bowl. I think it came out aright actually not great but good.

// Pizza Hut has opened on my island and its walls are filled with beautiful murals. This one is so beautiful, appreciating a good moment is truly an art I keep having to relearn.

Okay, so my blogging schedule has suffered I wont lie but what school is doing to me now I cannot put into words....soon I will be free...I hope.

Peace. Love. Keep the faith.

Day In The Life 2015

I've been wanting to do another day in the life post for some time now. The last time I did it was back in September of the 2014 for the blogtember challenge. There happened to be a similar challenge going on via insta so I figured why not give it a whirl?

7:36 - I'm already in the city and on my way to work. Most businesses are closed and we have a cruise ship in today.

9:56 - The rain hasn't stopped much since yesterday. I forgot my umbrella. Luckily there was one in the car and even more lucky is the fact that it matches my work bag!

12:20 - It's lunch time and I'm working through it today but I took a break to set up the picture for a blog post so that when I get home it only means I have to upload it. This way I have part of my blogging process out of the way.

3:40 - I left work, most of the day was spent doing paper work so not much to show on camera. I do have an exhibit to go see today so that should be a fun detour. Everything is so green and lush, the rain has been good for our lands. Yes this is the front yard of the office.  Hashtag blessed?

4:03 - I stopped into say hi to my artist friend at his studio. Always weird things to be seen there haha

4:30 - I went on over to the National Museum where the exhibition is being held, met some friends who were also going and chat for a bit before the doors opened in the little 'court yard' of sorts. One can see the street from there.

5:30 - It was a long wait but the rain and distance mean it's stick around or abandon thoughts of seeing this exhibit on opening day. The artist is a friend so I decided to stay.

6:00 - Opening! Sign the guest book!

6:03 The artist doing her thing!

6:05 - Author of Force Ripe!

6:24 - Picture with the artist and friend. Isn't she a lovely lass?! Now off I dash!

6:26 - I have a class so I'm dashing. Not before one of these tiny burgers though!

6:26 - Just noticed the Museum's vintage bottle collection!

6:33 - My ride has not arrived and I really wanted to hear her speech...I'm going back in!

6:37 - Oh hey there friend and photographer Haron!

6:40 - Ride arrived and home we sped.

7:18 - Arrived home, changed, dashed to computer. Class is cancelled. I was exhausted and frustrated by then so I just caught up on an episode of something, read for fifteen minutes and went to bed as I was feeling pretty bleh.


Hope you enjoyed this swift glimpse into one of my days. Rained out but still touched by an artists brush. I am grateful for thus. Thanks to my friends for suffering through my selfies!

Peace. Love. Kept Appointments.

Project 52 | OCTOBER

01. | A Christmas tree went up at the supermarket ladies and gentlemen and I was filled with glee!

02. | I keep finding myself in libraries surrounded by literature books. No, seriously. I think it's a sign..

03. | Painted my nails pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month as always because yay boobies, keep em safe and keep em healthy!

04. | A Halloween jack-o-lantern made out of a Caribbean pumpkin? Yes please you brave, strong soul!

These past few months are slipping past me in a blur guys, truly. I don't know what I've been doing with myself besides school and reading. Story of my life I suppose...

Hope November is treating you even better than October did!

Peace. Love. Relevance.

3 Ways to Piss Off a Blogger | My Terms of Service.

Don't forget to give credit for our hard work

Let me clear things up if there is any confusion now, I am a writer.  I am a writer who engages in the form of writing known as blogging. For a blogger, work is different. Creating content, conceptualising a photo before you take it, choosing good lighting and then if you're a blogger who watermarks, taking the time to do so. Lets not forget editing and putting all of these parts together. This takes time, effort and passion. It doesn't matter how small the following or how big the reach. We take pride in what we do just like anyone would. Respect that by crediting our work always.

Do not assume we will work for free.

I use the word free loosely, anyone in any equation they enter deserves to be compensated whether that be monetarily or through credit or mention. If you are a sponsor, an affiliate or someone who stands to gain from working with me, do not expect me to give of myself whole heartedly with nothing to gain from it. Whether that is a mention, a credit or monitory payment for my time effort and hard work. Consider the accumulative value of what you are asking and then treat me, the writer, with the respect I deserve. Treat me as someone willing to work with you to make your dream happen as part of my own dream.

Don't ask or expect us to not be honest.

Anyone who takes us seriously, also known as the people you are trying to reach from working with us, trusts us for our honesty and accountability. I for one will never promote a product or service I do not believe in. Therefore, do not approach me asking that I review a product or service you do not allow me to try for myself. I will not write about something as if I have experienced it when I have not That is to say that I will a lie or, more accurately, I will not great for you a work of fiction without saying that it is. As writer I make a pronounced habit of stating the difference between the two when I engage in either. Expect that I will continue to do so. Honesty between my audience and I is priceless and worth protecting.

That said I would LOVE to work with you as it has to do with  writing reviews and trying samples as long as you are okay with acknowledging my work and my claim to honesty. You can find an example of advertorial work I have done in the past here.

What do you do when others taking your work as nothing but play?

Peace. Love. Transparency.
