I appreciated that long holiday weekend but it flew by really quickly. Every week there’s something new, this week is ‘Carnival Week’ I.E. the week before the carnival road march; so there are a lot of fetes going on. Take a look at my list of events for this week 🙂 Continue reading “Upcoming Events!”
A lot of persons wait patiently for this week in April, this week has Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and is followed by Easter Sunday & Monday. So for those who work a 9-5 like myself, we count days on the calendar to public holidays, and they are Good Friday and Easter Monday. In Jamaica we’re nearing the end of Carnival/Bacchanal Season, so there are a lot of fetes going on, but there are also some fun family activities as this time has public holidays; here is a list of events for Easter Weekend.
Hey! Give thanks cause it’s the weekend!! If you’re looking for things to do, I have some options. Take a look at what’s in the streets this week. Continue reading “Upcoming Events!”
The Anime, Manga, and lovers all things Japanese, Ja Cosplayaz, created a Halloween costume party for the open minded Jamaicans, those who like cosplay, those who like dressing up in costumes, or even those who like themed parties; mixed that love with the true Jamaican nature, partying (mixed drinks inclusive) and this was the outcome.

I used this as an excuse to wear my hair in an Afro for the first time since being natural, and I must say, it was thrilling. My hair isn’t that long but I loved my ‘fro, it made me feel empowered, especially since I could never wear my hair like this to work. Plus nobody couldn’t tell me, mi neva hot 😛 S&H is a weekly drink & hookah inclusive party at the Top Floor of the Quad, one of the clubs in New Kingston.
People were decked out in their best ensembles, Continue reading “S&H for Jamaica 53”
My first paint party just happened to be Bacchanal J’ouvert, every time a paint party came up something had to come up in my life and block it, so this was my first. I have to say, it was amazing, unlike regular bacchanal that started at 8pm, J’ouvert started at 10pm ’til daylight.
