I launched my blog from Barbados in 2013 – to an audience of 1. It took time but now has readers from more than 24 countries.

There’s nothing standing in the way of your blog and creative career blossoming…



When I pressed pause on a lifelong travel journey and hustle habit to start working (mostly) from home, it was a big challenge that brought a new set of lessons along with time to start and maintain this blog, learn to grow food and get better acquainted with the kitchen, overcome some life hurdles, write more songs, and document the beauty of creation in Barbados to share with you.

I love to travel but have also learned the value of creating breathing room in your lifeand being refreshed. Outdoor adventures around the island are still on the menu and shared on the blog in posts and videos.

Being busy can sometimes be a distraction or a sign of restlessness, and time isn’t promised; it’s precious.
