End of a Chapter: Good Bye M*RKologie
Two and a half years ago, I founded M*RKologie. My goal was to get my name out there and create content relevant to Jamaica with International appeal. But it became more than that, it gave me an outlet after a painful failed relationship. It became a place where my ideas came to life and a place where I found myself. My therapy and looking back it has also became a digital record of my transformation from girl to woman. This blog has given me so many opportunities that I previously thought were impossible and for that I am so grateful.
In past few months, I have found it hard to focus on my blog, not because of loss of passion but because it seemed to no longer fit with the woman I was becoming. M*RKologie seemed girlish and cute. However, I am ready to embrace sensual and womanly.
With this I say good bye to all my readers. The ones I’ve met and the ones I haven’t. It is such a hard decision to give up something you’ve put so much of yourself into. You have been such a huge support to me and for that I am eternally grateful. Your words of encouragement always came at the right time.
invite you to join me on my new journey. One that I hope as inspiring as it is vibrant. My new blog Orange Street Launches on May 22 2014. I’ll be co-blogging with the beautiful and talented Afayah Prendergast of Beauty Jamaica.

SHEro Inspired Challenge Day 21: Asses you relationship with money
Find ways you can improve your financial life-where is your most of your money spent? Is it on wants or needs?
Earlier this year I wrote a post F*** 2014, with my F-Bombs for 2014. On my list was being Financially Fit. Since last November I have been working on being more fiscally responsible.
SHEro Inspired Challenge Day 20: Goal Setting
Write down a major goal you want to achieve this year and decide what steps need to be taken today.
For the past two years I have wanted to become an Image Consultant well more specifically a Style Coach. Style Coaching is a course that combines Image Consulting and Life Coaching. This happens to be perfect for me because it’s my two loves, personal development and fashion rolled into one.
After the M*RKologie Camp for Girls this past Christmas, I knew that it was my calling to work with girls and teens.
This year, I want to stop talking about becoming a Style Coach and make some real steps to achieving my dream.
SHEro Inspired Challenge Day 17: Get Organized
Choose one area of your life you’d like to get organized.
At the beginning of 2014 I finally decided to give in to my inner neat freak. Those who saw my room during my teen years could attest to the fact that I had a penchant for not putting things away.
I wasn’t really a messy person because I hated mess. And it went deeper than just regular teenage laziness. The truth is, I knew that once I started giving into organization it would take over my life. I’m the type of person who wants to do the best and even better than the best. For that reason, I choose to ignore certain things to maintain my own sanity.
After living on my own for a year, I finally decided it was time to get my act together and organize my home life. After all, I’m almost 25 and I have to fulfill my dream of being a younger more vibrant Caribbean Martha Stewart somehow.
SHEro Inspired Challenge Day 11: How can you be a better
mother/ sister/friend/ spouse?
I don’t always feel like I’m the best friend I could be. I get moody and often feel like I want to disappear for days at a time. People don’t believe me, but I’m really a big mouthed introvert. So here are 3 things I think would make me a better friend/sister.
SHEro Inspired Challenge Day 16: My Best Me
Choose a Goddess Name
Your Goddess name is a name that makes you feel fierce, fabulous and most importantly like the best version of yourself.
My Goddess name is…(drum roll)
SHEro Inspired Challenge
Week 3 of the SHEro Inspired Challenge continues and this week we’re focusing on Dreams and Goal Setting.
In the celebration of International Women’s Month. Blogger Carey-Lee Dixon and I have designed a 31-day challenge centered around getting the life you deserve and becoming your own SHEro.
If you’re late to the party you can still join this great challenge. Follow along with your personal blogs or even with a journal.
SHEro Inspired Challenge Day 9: Establish Personal Boundaries
Personal boundaries are guidelines, rules or limits that a person creates to identify for themselves what are reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave around him or her and how they will respond when someone steps outside those limits.They are built out of a mix of beliefs, opinions, attitudes, past experiences and social learning.
I’m aware many of you following this challenge don’t have blogs and that’s ok. I am encouraging you to follow this challenge with a journal as well. I started journalling when I was about 11. I can even remember my very first journal, it was fat, yellow and decorated with smiley faces. Journalling is a great way to get your thoughts out in the open if you don’t necessarily want to share with someone. And today is probably one of those days for me.
SHEro Inspired Challenge Day 8: Letting Go
Choose one thing you need to let go. How will your life improve once you let this go? What steps are you willing to take?
Letting go. There are so many things I’ve let go in the past, and isn’t it funny how things just seem to pile up. You ignore your personal growth journey for a minute and BAM, you have a brand new set of baggage you don’t even recognize.
SHEro Inspired Challenge Day 7: Choose one thing that you can’t change about yourself that you’re going to choose to embrace.
At the wonderful age of 23 my worst nightmare came to life. I saw my very own first chin hair! It was black, scraggly and definitely unwelcome. I have been dreading this moment for 23 years. Lady beards sort of run in the family and I hoped it would skip me entirely, alas, I wasn’t so lucky.
