A blurb about me.

I am so glad that you are starting this journey with me. I was born and raised in the Caribbean but have a style that is all my own. I now live in the Washington DC metro area with my family of four (which includes a 3 and 7 year old) and we are a homeschoooling bunch. Dad is often the one behind the camera.

mom and kiddies going for ice creamI’ve always found my bliss in food, travel, fashion but my childhood crush on science led me to pursue a doctorate degree in pharmacy. Fast forward a few years and I still enjoy talking about health, but my passion is wrapped around where I’ve always found my bliss.

I did a few small pageants back in the day, so I don’t mind striking a pose.

Talk to my mom, and she will tell about the time that I ordered a lobster tail on my 12th birthday or how I used to throw together gourmet salads in grade school.

Most days I try not to take myself too seriously and my “fish face” is second to none.

And then there’s travel (aahhh)…well I have always traveled in some capacity almost all of my life. But, mainly on this blog you can read tips and ideas on how to “Live Life with Finesse and Style”.

I share those tips through my original recipes, lifestyle posts, fashion round ups, videos and more!

I enjoy my role in our Washington DC area home and do so with a savvy chic and modern twist because life is more fun with elegance and flair.
