Friday Favourites

Barbados hotels

I'd give anything to be at that pool right now: taken at the Radisson Hotel in Barbados. Soon guys. Soon.

It's Friday! It was a short week here, with last Monday being a public holiday for me. Guess what though, I made the week shorter by taking today off (for good reason and much needed). Y'all, I'm pretty excited for the weekend. For once, I brought no work home and my plans are to clean the apartment, maybe have a drink or two, shop a tiny bit and generally just ... relax. Enough rambling, on to my favourite things for the week...

8 things I wish I knew before getting a cat

what you should know about cats

So, like I said in my last post, I got a kitten. That's Chanel up there at about 8 weeks old - isn't she the cutest?

When I got her, she was just 6 weeks old and now, she's just over three months. Anyone who has been around me for more than 5 minutes since I've had her, has heard me obsess about my kitten. Y'all, I went from a self professed "I'm a dog person" to crazy cat lady in 2.5 seconds.

That said, I had absolutely no idea how to raise a cat before I got her. I grew up with dogs - not cats. Call me crazy but I like to be prepared and while I really wanted a cat, I knew I was not prepared to own one, so naturally, I did tons of research before actually picking Chanel up (I literally read 500 articles and watched 2 million YouTube videos - nothing too crazy). Nothing I read or watched could prepare me for the crazy that was and is cat town. It's a good crazy,  but there are just things I wish I knew about life with a cat.

Well hello there ...

Tobago beaches

Your eyes are not deceiving you. Yes, I have posted a blog post. A kinda long one.

They say time flies when you're having fun - and it certainly does. While I've kept up with my blog reading (and with a few sporadic comments here and there), the fact is that I had, for a period, given up on this space on the internet. I blogged 22 times in 2016 and only once for this year...
