My mind is constantly spinning with ideas of content to produce; whether it be through the use of graphics, photographs or written posts. As such, my tiny space here began to develop.

It began almost 4 years ago as an outlet during my time in undergrad. However, over the years my interests have grown. If you’re interested in lifestyle tips and tricks from a millennial (not sure how I feel about that word), travel stories, natural hair inspiration and the 411 on Antigua & Barbuda, you’re in the right place.

Along the way I picked up a life mantra: living, loving, learning. With it, I hope I inspire at least one of you to do something out of the ordinary.

I’m an island girl at heart. Born, raised and now residing in Antigua, land of 365 beaches. Despite not visiting the beach as often as you’d imagine, I absolutely love relaxing shoreside and soaking in the atmosphere. A part from the beach, I love utilizing social media and eating junk food (I know the limit, don’t worry). P.S. My first love in the creative world was graphic design; I don’t practice as much as I’d like, but it’s something I enjoy doing when the time arises.

Given that I’m multi-passionate, I don’t only blog for a living. I’m currently employed as a Technical Data Officer where I get the opportunity to work on various climate change projects, as well as gather/collect environmental related data. I earned my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Geosciences, concentrating in Environmental Science from the Midwestern State University. Low key, I’m itching to get back into school for a Master’s program.

Another part of life involves ‘service above self‘ where I’m a proud member of the Rotaract Club of Antigua. It’s a community service organization for young individuals under the arm of Rotary International. Presently, I hold the title of Public Relations Officer and Community Service Director. Being a member of this organization and executing these roles assist in pushing me out of my comfort zone.
