My Weird Quirks

Day 27

Hey You,

I have weird habits/quirks that I wanted to share so I don’t feel so alone in my weird little world of… well… Tiffany. I cannot be the only person with these quirks, so I just want to make sure!

Here goes nothing!

  • I only write with black ink pens.
  • My surroundings are always clean (wherever I eat, study or work), except my bedroom.
    • This is because it is my sanctuary and it is the only place I get to be a slob and let loose so I enjoy it always. My room is always clean, don’t get me wrong but my bed always have books or clothes on it. This annoys my mother! 🙂
  • I have when my foods touch (except burgers).
    • I think I would annoy my company if I eat my burger layer by layers so I don’t.
    • I love Chipotle but this is one of the reasons why I also don’t like Chipotle. Everything. Touches.
    • I will take the time to pick apart my food and then eat everything separately.
  • My bedroom door must always be closed (day, night, cold, hot, I really don’t care, close my door when you leave my room).
  • My mouth and feet must always be in motion.
    • I always have gum or something to eat and I bounce my feet, which I find quite annoying when others do it. How hypocritical of me!
  • Whenever I give advice I always end by saying “but what do I know.” This way you take my advice at your own risk.
  • I like when everything is even except seven which is my lucky number.
  • Before I leave my house, I must always test the weather for the days. I do this by poking my naked right leg outside and it helps me when deciding how to dress.

Yes, I am a weird child. Believe me, I know. What are some of your weird habits?

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous,

#Beautiful… The few days I felt like this. 

Hey, You!

Day 26| 31 Days of January Blog Challenge

Welcome back (if you care of course, and if you are new welcome!). It has been a while, and I have been busy with school so I have not been posting as religiously as I’d like. However, school is out, and I gave myself a one week break which I deserved, but that is now over.

I did not complete the January blog challenge, but here I am with an update to do just that. This will be a series of pictures of my beautiful moments so far this year! BTW, the above pic was taken at a school event, and I made that flower crown of which I am so proud.

I look like a blackberry in these photos, but it was a beautiful day. I was at an induction ceremony. #melaninbaby

I took this picture in Subway. No filter, pure sunlight, and my melanin is popping! Peep my glow though. #YassTiffany #FabulousTiffany #whenthesunlighthityouright

I had nothing to do during my little break, so naturally, I bleached my hair, as I always do! This was me attending a retirement party. #FabulousAF

IMG_2849In this photo, I was over the moon because I returned home from school after a particularly droopy day at school and my niece simply looked and me and said “Aunty Tiffany, yuh know seh yuh pretty? [did you know you are pretty?], and my spirit rose to the heavens. She then proceeded to give me a mini photo shoot and the photos were great. I slept on a cloud that night too.

P.S. She is five years old so as you can see, she has great eyes and even more talent. #FabulousTiffany #HappyAunt

I worked at a school event and one of my fellow planners took this photo for me!

Went to a beautiful formal event and this picture makes me look like I have a butt.

I just want to shed some light on my growing afro! ‘Brows are on fleek too!

So, that’s about it. Not bad at all!

5 Year Anniversary

FullSizeRender 2.jpg

So I’ve been living in the US for five years now!

Hey You,

So… NBD, but this month makes it five (5) years since I have been living in the United States. It has been a somewhat fun and exciting experience life and learning about a new place. Jamaica is so different from the U.S., the people, the places and overall environment.

I missed my friends dearly, and I couldn’t talk to them because they were all in a boarding school where no technology devices are allowed. When I got here, I was also out of school for about two weeks, so it sucked a bit. But life has been good so far, so no complaints on my part.

Here’s to five more years! Cheers!

*** I would have cheered with a drink but my 21st birthday is yet to come!

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous,

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…

Career Tips from Roger Dow…

Tuesday (Feb.7.17), I went to an Event seminar at Temple University. It was a seminar with Mr. Roger Dow- President, and CEO of U.S. Travel Association (USTA)- as the speaker at the event. At first, I dreaded attending the event because I forgot it was required for my class, and I feared it would be long and tedious.

At first, I was uncomfortable at the start of the event because I stuck out like a sore thumb. Everyone in the crowd was all dressed in business attire and there I was in my ripped cap, rain boots, a pair of distressed jeans and a coat as big as Alaska. I am a communications student, so I have a more relaxed and casual dress code. Also, it was freezing and wet. Eventually, I acknowledged that I was already there- nowhere near home- and moved on because I could change nothing at that point.

Anyway, Dow gave an excellent speech and even better advice for working in the event industry. It may also be applied to life. So, here goes some of his tips that I have picked up along the way.

1. Take risks! Stretch yourself.
He spoke about being on the diving board, and you are halfway down, and the only option is to enter the water or… well, enter the water. Make choices to disrupt the normalcy and expand your creativity.
***p.s Avoid belly-flopping. You might as well dive head in and avoid injuries.

2. Work on relationships!
Network, network, network everywhere you go. You may never know beside whom you are sitting. Everyone you meet can make even the slightest of difference in your life. Also, familial relationships, friendships, and other relationships are also important. You must not lose sight of what is important to you.

3. Depth- Know a little bit about a lot of things.
It never hurts to expand your knowledge base and be more intelligent than you currently are.

4. Learn to write!
He said this is one of the first impressions you get to make on people. If you have typos and grammatical errors on resumés, cover letters or documents it is never a good look.

5. Learn to speak!
Speak properly and with confidence. Your words are your tools, and it also makes an impression upon making contact with others.

6. Focus on what is weird!
Make observations and write down all that seems strange or out of place. You get six months to fix it, and after six months it all fits into the decor of whatever room/design you observe. After six months it all becomes routine.

7. Tell people your dreams.
You never know who can make them come true! People can hear of opportunities and think of you in an instant because with them you shared your goals and dreams.

8. Evaluate your career choice.
If you are no better than you were a year ago at your job, if you have learned nothing new and your pay sucks, it is time to move on and challenge yourself to do better things.

9. Be curious!
Ask questions like an annoying six-year-old child. I know they can give you a massive headache, but ask why until you are happy with the answer you get. They say curiosity kills the cat, but satisfaction brought it back, so ask away until your curiosity is satiated.

1o. Do your research.
Know what you talk about so you don’t look a fool. Read and know what is out there. When you stop reading you stop learning.

11. Have a business mentality!
Think outside the box and see the world as your garden to plant and reap fruits of your labor.

12. Know how to sell yourself!
What is unique about you? Find out what makes you stand out from others and use it to your advantage.

All in all, the event was great, and Mr. Dow was hilarious- made some funny comments here and there- which made the seminar much easier and fun to get through.I shall be using some if not all of these along with my way, especially since I will enter the workforce in the next year or so.

What are your thoughts?

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous

Day 28- January 2017

This is a bit late… I have been tired and busy, but I am determined to complete the blog challenge for January that I have set for myself. Go check out the other posts.

#Blessed

I am genuinely happy and excited that I am blessed to be living a good and healthy life filled with fun, boredom and mild adventures and wonderful friends and family.  I am in college right now pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Communication with two concentrations. I also am doing a certificate and a minor, so no time to waste really. Sometimes I dislike school overall, but I guess we all have those days. 

I am also alive and well. Breathing, healthy, the works, you know. That is something to feel thankful for as it could be much worse. I could be dead, lost or in a ditch somewhere, so I’m good. Also, you beautiful people take the time out of your day to read my blog, so I am thankful and happy about that. My family is also doing well- in one way or another- and they are smiling so how can I complain. My friends are also still alive and kicking. Happy is what I am. I think I sound like an old person here so I’m going to go now.

All in all, I am blessed. I’m sure yo are too. You have a great and wonderful day now!

Share with me why you are blessed.

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous…
