Let Me Tell You About Myself
10 Things About Me
I was born on an Island (Jamaica) and raised in the South (Florida/Georgia), so I call myself a “Caribbean Southerner.”
I am a wife to an amazing and supportive man, and mother of two very smart and silly kids.
I am a self-taught seamstress. I learned from a young age from the older women in my community growing up. Also, I learned from instructional videos (craftsy.com) and YouTube.
I am not a big fashion trend follower. Some trends I like and some I don’t. I wear what I want, even if it’s not on trend nor in season. Because I am Jamaican and Southern, my style mixes both together. Fun prints and colors with a southern flare.
My favorite period in fashion is the 20s, 60s, 80s, and today.
I love sewing children’s clothes. I feel like with kids, I can step out the box a little more.
I love to cook. I would say that I cook for my family at least 5 days a week. I am also a pescatarian (no land animals), so it’s been challenging cooking in a way that incorporates my diet with my family’s.
I love music, no matter what I am doing, there is always music playing. My music choice is hard to pinpoint. I like anything from 90s rock to country and contemporary Christian music. My only dislike musically, is a lot of profanity, and horrible lyrics (I need to understand what is being said).
I started a blog because blogging gave me somewhere to share my projects and thoughts.
My dream is to sell my own designs one day, kids and adults. Nothing avant garde, just everyday ready to wear fashion.
