 Girls Trip: Miami Edition 

Ever felt like you’ve been constantly going and life is passing you by? Well that’s how I’ve been feeling recently, unfortunately.  I haven’t had a break since 2017 started to put that into perspective for you, we’re ten months into 2017. It’s so common for us to say we need a break but often times end up not taking one(life always gets the best of us). Anyways let me stop blabbing about my oh so busy life and talk about the break I finally got to take….

Fall TV Is Back!

I know most of you guys are excited for the fall season because of the fashion and change of weather but for me I’m excited for fall because of the fall TV shows. I’m a self declared TV junkie, I watch almost EVERY show there is. I suck at time management and I have been trying to improve this skill, but for some reason when it comes to my TV shows I seem to manage that time really well (I know, I know I need to get it together lol). Watching TV is one of the ways I entertain myself, some shows are just really addicting. I know it can be very overwhelming when trying to find a show to watch but have no fear, the TV junkie is here to help. I’m going to list some of my favorite shows to watch and the new ones I’ll pick up this fall. For me it’s very important to find a show that’s going to catch my attention or as my friend Gigi and I like to say “pull me in.” I’m only going to list a few, if I were to list all the shows I watch, this will be a very longgggg post. In another life, my true calling would be to lay around all day in my PJ’s and watch all the shows in the world lolol.

Irma The Beast

The past week has been one of the longest and most stressful week of 2017. As most of you know by now, Hurricane Irma made her appearance and came with a vengeance. While we know it’s hurricane season many of us never thought that we’ll see another hurricane let alone the size of Irma. Week’s before, our attention was on Houston after the destruction hurricane Harvey caused.

As you know I’m from the beautiful twin Island state of Antigua and Barbuda. I grew up on the island of Antigua, Barbuda however is our sister island. Hurricane Irma first made landfall on September 4th over both of the Islands. However, the island of Barbuda was heavily impacted. Approximately 95% of our precious sister isle was devastated, leaving almost 70% of the population homeless. She continued her journey through the Leeward islands( the British and US virgin islands, Puerto Rico, St. Martin and Anguilla). Irma also destroyed these islands leaving many homeless.

This week caused many to have anxiety attacks for a lot of people, including myself. Heck I stressed myself into getting a cold. Being up here in the US and seeing your loved ones suffer and the fear of not knowing if some loved ones made it, is not something I’d wish on anybody. The wait to hear from loved ones felt like an eternity and still does for the many who have yet to hear from their family members and friends.

 Nothing Happens Before Its Time

Have you ever heard the phrase “Nothing happens before its time” or “the race is not for the swift?” These are phrases I would constantly recite to myself whenever things didn’t work out or go my way.

Sometime last year, around fall I made a promise to myself to be a better person. I do believe I am a good person, but there’s always room for growth and just like you I make mistakes and have made mistakes.

I told myself I’d go on a self cleanse which for me consisted of finding my true self and purpose, doing more of what makes me happy and saying no to things and people who weren’t adding value to my life, literally.

I was so serious about this cleanse that when one of my friends from China who’s into everything natural came to visit me, she motivated me to try something new. I went and got some natural deodorants, soaps and scrubs all of which I still use to this day. I started eating differently(surely I fell off the wagon with this). I was serious about my version of a self cleanse. As one of my friend Alyssa puts it I was on my “Erykah Badu” ish lol. Continue reading

The Beginning…

Hello and welcome to my blog ‘ALL ABOUT THE SCRUB LIFE.’ I am extremely excited to share my experiences with you all.

You may be wondering why did I decide to start blogging. To be honest, I have been sitting on this idea for way too long.  When wanting to try something new, one often let fear cripple them. My friends this is exactly what happened to me. I lost hope along the way but with the support of my family and friends, I decided to put things in motion. Wellll after about two years of procrastinating (something I tend to do very well), I am now overjoyed and extremely excited as I sit writing what will be my first official blog post.

I decided to start a blog not only to express my thoughts and opinions but also to share my experiences, and to be a source of help and inspiration to others. My goal is to create an environment where like minded individuals can come together and discuss various topics.
