Philly

August 16th, 2017

Hello Again, 

I do not have much to say here! I spent a few hours at the Spruce Street Harbor Park in Philadelphia, and I took a few photos that I thought were beautiful, so I uploaded them because I figured they were worth sharing.

They will be uploaded to my Instagram page centered on Philadelphia’s picturesque. You may check it out sometime. (Most of them are yet to be uploaded, so this is an exclusive – I felt really boujee writing that!)

I perused around the Waterfront and took pictures of cool things, people, and places.I hope you like them!

Spring Break- Philadelphia Flower Show🌺…

Hello You,

Spring Break, as I mentioned in my previous blog Follow my blog with Bloglovin“>post, did not go as planned and so I decided to some activities around Philadelphia, so I decided to attend the annual Philadelphia Flower Show. This was my first time, but I had a blast. 

The theme this year was Holland, and the presentation and layout were absolutely beautiful. I am not the hearts and flowers type of girl, but if somebody can make some beautiful creations with flowers, I’m all yours. The entrance was absolutely beautiful, as were the decorations and layout of the entire event.

The photos shown below are a display of how I made my way through the event.

FullSizeRender 27I saw this little diamond in the rough, and I just had to capture the moment we shared with each other.

This experience made me feel like I want to be an artist. I suck at almost anything artsy, and I am not particularly a fan of flower or plants, but a girl can change her mind. The artistry was just fabulous experience, and it was so worth my time and money.

Stay Fabulous,

Spring Break – Chinatown

Hey, You!

My plan for Spring Break 2017 was to travel somewhere warm and tropical (preferably Miami) and be a beach bum for a week.

Of course, I’d then return to the confused weather that swings from one extreme to another within hours or a day. It is 60° F here then the next day its 18° F. Why? I don’t know? Global warming is real people but that’s another topic for another day.

Instead, I decided to make the most of my time here in Philadelphia and explore some of the places that I have never been before, despite me living here for approximately five years. So I explored Chinatown a bit with a mate. I had a good day.

We went and I had Chicken Fried Rice but I didn’t enjoy it so I decided to make the most of the scenery.  But since it was snowing, I decided to take some photos outside before I left my house. Fun fact: My five(5) year old niece took these Instagram photos and I could not be happier with her and them. #FakeModelBehaviour

All in all, it was a good day! #FatCheeksTiffanyIMG_1424.JPG

Next thing to do on my agenda this week is to attend the Philadelphia Flower Show on Saturday, March 18, 2o17. So, I have another update sometime this weekend or early next week. 

Until next time…

Dear Diary, Tiffany's Tales, Travel

Places I’d Like to Visit…

Where would Tiffany like to go?! The better question is where wouldn’t Tiffany like the to go? Traveling and seeing the world is a big deal to me. I shall, I will, I must.

Traveling will give me a chance to have new experiences and explore diverse cultures. I want to stay woke. I want to know how and why people are motivated by their cultures.I also am interested in languages so I’ll learn while doing so.

I wish to backpack through Europe (cliché I know). This is by far a long shot and most likely wouldn’t last very long because sleeping outdoors is so not my idea of a fun time. I want to try out the excellent French cuisine and excite my taste buds with the best wine they offer. I want to see The Louvre, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Eiffel Tower, The London Eye, Buckingham Palace, the Colosseum, and definitely the Palace of Versailles among other places. 

After I wish to explore Africa. I have been recommended Sierra Leone by a friend because she is from there, but I also want to see Nigeria, Ghana, Morocco, Kenya, South Africa, Madagascar and everywhere else I manage travel to. 

Visit extremely cold countries. Iceland, Antarctica, Russia, Finland, and Greenland are some predominantly cold countries I would visit for no more than two weeks at a time.  I sincerely do not like cold weather. And the dearly beloved Canada.

Asia and Australia are the other continents I wish to visit. I want to do cliché stuff like climbing the Great Wall, going to the more beautiful and congested Asian cities like Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai, Osaka, Kyoto and also the less popular ones. India seems like a good destination too. I would then travel to the smaller islands and try some new foods and live among the people and do some touristy stuff too.

Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand more exotic countries.

Roadtrip throughout the 48 mainland States. Because what better way to learn about the place where I live than to travel if that is the only traveling I ever get to do. Hopefull not.

The Caribbean. I want to start in Miami and travel throughout the Greater Antilles and Mexico and then further down into the other Caribbean Islands. I especially want to go to Trinidad & Tobago and Barbados during Carnival/ Crop Over season.  Next summer I have high hopes of traveling around the Caribbean. I especially am looking forward to going to Cuba.

I just want to travel especially to exotic places and do exotic things and photography. Where do you want to go? Leave a comment and let me know. 

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous

Top of my Bucket List…

There are a lot of adventures on which I would like to embark. There is so much for me to do, so hopefully I don’t die young #fingerscrossed. My goal is to take as much as I can get out of this life and die a happy gal. I shall be like a bird in the sky someday…free; so I need to start working on this list.

#1

The adventure that tops my bucket list is me traveling all around the world to meet new people, see new things and eat foods I dare try not to pronounce and those that I do. I want to live new experiences and see the world, broaden my horizon and live among the citizens and not some fancy hotel. Ultimately, the goal is to be happy. I also hope to take beautiful photographs and do a travel blog.

travel_around_the_world

Here is a list of other activities that I’d like to do:

Learn to swim. For the life of me, I cannot swim, and I was born and raised on an island. I also lived near a lot of rivers, and I am probably the only one in my family who knows not how to swim.

Work with non-profit organizations... in support of human rights (gender equality, LGBTQ rights, racial rights, etc.) I someday hope to work with the United Nations (UN) and the Human  Rights Council (HRC).

Learn at least 4 new languages. I am working on two (Spanish, French) at the moment so at least two to go.

Achieve my goal weight of somewhere between 120-140 lbs. I try every day to gain weight, but I shall see what the future holds.

I must go to Alaska…during the periods when it’s 24 hours of complete darkness and 24 hours of full sunlight. I just imagine how much of a beautiful of a time I will have. It must be nice to stargaze when Alaska experiences total darkness.

Photograph someone or something for an entire year. Photography is a hobby of mine and capturing certain moments to relive is always great. It’s like being stuck in time.

Play a musical instrument. I really really love the drums. A guitar or a piano would also suffice.

Learn to dance…Native Spanish dances tickle my fancy, so I am leaning towards those (flamenco, salsa, merengue). I also want to be superb at dancing to Dancehall music.

Write and publish a book of some kind. I am leaning towards romance novel because I’m a sucker for love; oddly enough I’m not touchy-feely, but it shall work out. Mix up my career choices a bit.digital-self-publishing

Live with no regrets. Know that everything happens for a reason somehow no matter how bad or inconvenient a situation may seem. Besides, life is too short to be worrying and having regrets. Do the things that I love and those things that make me happy.

I shall also try to make it my life duty to work hard and establish a scholarship or grant program in Jamaica so that the young people can afford to go to school without racking up millions of dollars in debt when trying to get a higher education. It’s hard out here I tell you.

What do you want to do? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time…

Philly Favourites… Penn’s Landing

PENN’S LANDING

IMG_1759

One of my favourite places in Philadelphia is Penn’s Landing. It is a waterfront near Old City, Philadelphia, which hosts events, activities and is a home for a fleet of boats. I love it especially during the summer as it is the host of numerous events. Yearly, there is a Caribbean Festival, and I have been a patron since 2014.

Sailboats on the water. Camden, NJ is behind the sailboats.

The bridge to my left is the Ben Franklin Bridge. It connects Philly to New Jersey (NJ).

Here I am standing close to the edge of the wall (fearing that I may fall in), trying get a beautiful photo of me wistfully gazing at the calming yet treacherous waters.

Sidebar – As I stood there, I feared for my life. Surprisingly, I cannot swim. It is a bit ironic considering that I am from an island surrounded by water. To make matters even worse, in the countryside where I was raised, I was also surrounded by water. But the blame is on Mommy. She never allowed me to learn, and I am probably the only person in my family who can’t swim (fun fact).

THE BLUE CROSS RIVERRINK

The Blue Cross RiverRink is also in the same vicinity. This photo was taken last year  (05.2015) when I went skating with a few people.  Mind you; I know not how to skate, so I was clenching my butt hard not to fall.

I am wearing the grey cardigan (obviously!). I am casually posing for the photo while trying not to fall. ( photo via Blue Cross RiverRink.)

SPRUCE STREET HARBOR PARK

Penn’s Landing is in proximity to the Spruce Street Harbor Park.  There are hammocks, food trucks and a list of activities that are available to visitors of the site. The boats are used mostly for dining and entertainment purposes.

A few years ago, I went on the Spirit of Philadelphia- a favorite cruise in Philly that gives one a skyline view of the city while feeding you. The experience was scary but fun. The cruise lasted for about two hours, and the food and company were great.

Back in 2013 at the Spirit of Philadelphia cruise. I went on this cruise with my HS.

Given that I fear water, I only went on the boat because it would not leave Philly, and I was surrounded by people who could swim (I asked). I probably would never go on a proper cruise.

If and when you visit, we shall hang out!

Until next time….
