Review: Strut 2 by Traits Model Management

Traits Model Management is described as Guyana’s premiere modeling agency. They have put Guyanese models on the map having had a few models walk on international runways and featured in fashion magazines. For this, the agency must surely be applauded. I support any platform that highlights and showcases Guyanese and Caribbean talent and culture.

Ten days ago, on November 1st, Traits had their second volume of Strut – a fashion show that literally showcased Guyanese and Caribbean fashion. From the moment I heard of the show it Read More

Cutting my hair off…

Having cut and grown my hair out multiple times, I’ve experienced quite a few things in relation to hair and a woman’s looks that have left me feeling some type of way.

Let’s rewind almost ten years… The first time I cut my hair off I was still in high school. I went from hair that stretched down to the middle of my back to hair that I could not fit into a ponytail.

Book Review: Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan


As you may know, I have enjoyed both prequels to this book. Kevin Kwan did not disappoint in the third installment of his series.

The matriarch of the family is on her way out. The entire family is headed to Tyersall Park to bid their adieus, some in the hopes of having a nice inheritance and others to mend rifts in their relationships. We run into characters from previous books that have remarried and taken over other’s estates. There are characters marrying into European royalty whose stepmothers are insanely and irrationally jealous of them. There are couples who were previously trying to have babies to no avail finally welcome bundles of joy. And, divorces from hell including ex-wives that have to be hospitalized for mental breakdowns.
