Birds in Saint Lucia

It feels like it was yesterday that I watched the curving roads twist and bend through St Lucia. I peered out the car’s window as we went past brightly coloured houses and brick layered sides of unfinished constructions built on the edges of hills, with the rain heavy on the window, blurring my vision slightly. I sat back and caught my friend’s eye in the rear-view window. She smiled as her uncle raced through the road, rushed against the heavy rain.

“You brought the rain season with you, man,” He said to me laughing and making a joke that I took England’s weather with me on my flight. “It was sunny all week.”

End of June Playlist : Black Girl Magic

The June playlist was going to be extremely different, but as we haven’t had a lot of sun the past week or two, I thought I should write post a slightly different one.

All girls are magic, but there is a special kind of magic to black girls.

Day 2 in Bali – Red and white monkeys dancing

Looking back, the freedom to travel and do what I wanted was great. Just as I stated in my previous post, I wasn’t restrained to another person’s opinion.

Not all who wonder are lost –  J.R.R. Tolkien

Like the previous day, I arranged my day at the start of the day. After a day of exploring little ol’ Seminyak, I thought it was about time to explore another town on the island of Bali. After spending some time researching, I decided it was time to head further south of island, farther than Kuta.

Excited about Marvel’s Black Pather

Oh my gosh, Oh my days. Have any of you seen this? Is this real? I think I had a full fanboy moment when I saw this. Like for real. If your read my previous post, you’ll probably know that I’m a big fan of the superhero sci-fi/fantasy genre. However, Black Panther is on a whole other level, for many reasons.

It’s nearly been a week since I returned from Bali, and boy do I miss it. I miss the people, the friends I made, and most importantly, the food. Following this post, I’ll add a few more to a the series of A Day in Bali, where I’ll point out my daily itinerary, and end the series with a guide to Bali for future visitors.

Early Summer 2017 playlist

So spring is coming to an end, if it’s not already finished, and summer is being welcomed. For us Brits, it means we have 5% more chance of not having rain. And occasionally there’ll be some of sun, here and there. To be honest, this week’s weather has been great, and the focus says that this bank holiday weekend is going to great as well.

9 reason why I wanted a solo trip

This time next week, I’ll be waking up in a land far, far away. I would have endured a 14-hour flight to start a short adventure on my first solo trip. And you know what, I am excited, no, ecstatic. I’m buzzing and counting down the days. Although to be honest, my to do list is looking extremely loose. I’ve prepared the most important things.

Crazy about Marvel’s Defenders

Is anyone else as excited for Marvel’s Defenders as I am? No? Then maybe that needs to change. Seriously, the editors did a great job. I’m hooked. I’m hooked like a fish out of sea. To prove my dedication, I’ve added the release date to my calendar. That is exactly how hooked I am. I just hope I have enough time.

Did I mention I was excited?

Netflix’s Dear white people: A review

Over the weekend, Netflix released ‘Dear white people’. The series is a remake of the Justin Simien’s 2014 film of the same name. As provocative as the name implies, I think you should watch it. After binge-watching through the show, I can assure everyone that white people are not painted as the big, bad wolves hated by all. The show is also not strictly from the black perspective.
