UWI, St. Augustine organised a series of  TEDx talks on campus. This is the first I’m hearing of this, but Wendy had a chat with the audience. Quite nice.

Fiery Redux

Last year I wrote about the kaiso “Fiery” orginially by Maestro, remade by Bunji. Well my friend RemBunction posted this Mash-up on YouTube, oh Lord I love it.

So for your musical enjoyment.

PS: This is my motto for 2010, “Fiery, that is how I coming…”

Happy Christmas!

I’m spending my first Christmas in foreign. I don’t have anything special planned, just lunch with a friend, but I am grateful for all of my blessings. As I type this I’m playing the Daisy Voisin video I embedded in my first Christmas post on my blog.

Not much of a video, but the song…

Here in the UK, they say Happy Christmas.

Merry Christmas

So in a moment of idleness I decided to put up my picks for who should win. In other words here’s the list of my favourites in each category:

Beauty Blogging

I have been  so converted by the Twitter that I’ve been neglecting my blog. That and it’s been hella stressful at work. At any rate come September/October I should be in school in the UK, and that should provide much fodder for my blog or distract me from it completely. We’ll see.

I’ve been following some amazing beauty bloggers on Twitter, some others I discovered using WordPress’ search function. As you know I’ve become obsessed with hair blogs, well it has morphed into an all round beauty binge. For that I blame the following:
