London Calling…

London Trip

Hi Dahhlings!! It’s been over a week since I’ve posted.  Some of you may know, I travelled to my home town of London, England, to celebrate my birthday which was on Monday.  It was my intention to give you a blow-by-blow account of my time here, but boy was I wrong.  Once I landed, there was no time; my sister and I hit the ground running and we’re still going!

In the coming weeks I will be featuring gorgeous photos of my time back home, including posts of beautiful little stores I’ve discovered; there will also be an update with lovely photos of the Sika boutique, those who know me, know I love Sika dresses!  Also watch out for the beautiful photos that were taken at the Ritz, which is where my birthday luncheon was held.  My birthday lunch was an event I will remember for the rest of my life.  There was laughter, tears of joy and all around first class service from one of the premier landmark hotels in London. You’ve never dined until you’ve dined at the Ritz!

I’ll be back in the States soon!



Oh Don’t Stop The Carnival…

Good morning dahhlings! Another Monday, this one being the one before Labor Day weekend here in the states and today being a big bank holiday back home in England, with the Notting Hill Carnival, Europe’s largest street festival in full swing in London as I type.  The Notting Hill Carnival has been in existence in London since 1966.

Every year the streets of West London come alive with the sounds of Reggae and Calypso music, with elaborate costumes and foods from the various West Indian Islands {you may already know I am of Jamaican extraction}.  I haven’t been to the carnival in years, but I’ll be playing some cheerful sounds around my home today to keep me in the carnival mood.

The downside to this, is it means summer really is nearly over.  Don’t you think it went by too fast?

A Brit Gal’s Friday…

I’m proud to be British!!

Well we’ve survived the short week, and it was a hectic and productive one for me; I hope it was a good week for you too.  My family in England will be having their own 4 day weekend due to celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, Monday and Tuesday. 

Queen Elizabeth has been on the throne for 60 years!!! Poor Prince Charles might not be sitting on the throne anytime soon.  Ms. Queen does not seem to be going anywhere. I remember the celebrations for the Silver Jubilee 25 years ago; I hadn’t yet moved to the U.S.  I know there’ll be lots of partying and waving the good old Union Jack.  Have a drink for me fam… Cheers!
