Hi, I'm Krystal, but around here I'm known as Kay.

I’m an attorney, a tutor, a wanna-be runner (who has only entered 3 races), a writer (one day I plan to finish the book I’ve been writing for years – and I will), a traveller, a wearer of black and a comedian (at least in my head).

I post about travel, food, books, beauty, nights out, days in and my crazy Caribbean Life (oh ... I forgot to mention, I’m from the Caribbean – Trinidad and Tobago in fact). I also post about my interracial, intercultural, beautiful relationship with my Romanian husband Danny. Check out our trips to Romania here.

We live with our calico tabby rescue cat Chanel.  We adopted her at 6 weeks old and she is the cutest, most diva cat that ever did live. So diva that she has her own Instagram page. We'd love you to follow her. If you do, say hi!

I started this blog in 2014, which has to date been the worst full year of my life. It was terrible from the word “go” in January until the very end of December. There were no “get out of jail free” cards and certainly no “chance” cards handed to me in 2014. 

The story? I started the blog when my beautiful sister Kerry was ill. Sadly, she passed away in March 2014 – and took with her a piece of my heart. Though I don’t speak about her a lot on my blog – I get too emotional – she is the reason it exists. At the time, I needed a place to exhale and so I turned to the one thing that I have always used as an escape – writing. And this blog was born. The truth is I lost a lot of things and more than one person in 2014but gained a whole new perspective on life. I learned a lot about people, I learned a lot about myself and I learned a lot about life.

Thankfully, these days life is a bit brighter, my laugh is a bit heartier and my heart is much fuller. If I've learned nothing else, I sure have learned that life is too short not to be enjoyed. 

I do hope you stick around for a bit - grab a glass of bubbly, wine, Scotch or Hennessy (my drinks of choice), read, laugh, and enjoy The Kay Times.

  1. We have a lot more in common than what I thought! I graduated law school 2 years ago and I'm currently finishing up my MBA. What are you in grad school for? I'm going to go out on a limb and guess you're a slight overachiever?haha I also love to read, and still somehow try to fit in 1 or 2 books a week. So nice to meet you!
