What One Woman Spent Travelling in 2018

Hey there! Today's the penultimate day of my 2018 roundup series, and I'm back with a crowd favourite: sharing my travel expenses for the year. I consider myself Day Trip Queen, even if that won't last forever as the type of adventures I take will evolve over time. However, day trips are the ideal trade-off … Continue reading What One Woman Spent Travelling in 2018

2018 Year In Review

2018 has been quite the year! I must say, it was a better year than 2017 where both my personal life and my blog are concerned. As today is the 2nd anniversary of my blog, let's review her first. Adventures from Elle's Year As I'd explained yesterday, Adventures from Elle is still just a hobby … Continue reading 2018 Year In Review

Q&A | Adventures from Elle

On my personal Instagram page this month, I asked my followers what would they like to know about me or my blog and that I'd answer during my five-day 2nd anniversary celebratory blog-a-thon. I usually write from a more aloof position since I try to be very objective and matter-of-fact in sharing my adventures, but … Continue reading Q&A | Adventures from Elle

Jamaica’s Customer Service At Its Finest- A Satire

I had the pleasure of dining at Gloria's Seafood Restaurant for the umpteenth time on my birthday. Their food is a bit pricey but oh so delicious, my favourite place to have seafood in Jamaica before the second of September 2018. Their service is notoriously slow but the bright smiling waiters and waitresses usually remind … Continue reading Jamaica’s Customer Service At Its Finest- A Satire

2018: Mid-Year Mark

Hey there! So many drafts but no published posts since April 26. For the first time since this blog's inception in December 2016, I missed a month in writing on WordPress! It's not anything I'm proud of but if you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know I'm a medical student so life … Continue reading 2018: Mid-Year Mark

Wakanda Forever

I know I'm very late in watching Black Panther (don't rub it in) but Wakanda's forever anyway, so time is relative. Let's just say life happened. Nonetheless, I finally had the pleasure of watching this movie today. I'm not a huge movie fan but the hype about this film got me really psyched! A movie … Continue reading Wakanda Forever

Self-Care Manifesto | 100 Ways to Self Care

I promised Rochelle I'd be her biggest supporter for 2018. This started as 5 simple resolutions with my best friend; one goal: self-care as she accurately documents here. A lot were resolutions I've already had in the past and things I usually did well with, but of course, it's only human to fall from the … Continue reading Self-Care Manifesto | 100 Ways to Self Care

2017 Year In Review

2017 has been quite a year for me, laced with ups and equally as many downs. I felt as if the weeks kept passing and my mind was always playing catchup. A lot of what has happened to me or what I actually did and accomplished this year still hasn't fully sunk in yet. The … Continue reading 2017 Year In Review

Merry Chrismus!

Everyone is sending Merry Christmas multilingually these days so today I'll do mine in Jamaican patois. I know Christmas Day may be over in many countries but since Jamaica is in the UST-05:00 time zone, we have about 10 hours of this holy day left. With that, I wish you all the best this holiday … Continue reading Merry Chrismus!

What Davina Bennett’s 2nd Runner-Up in Miss Universe Means for Black Women Globally

I'm not a fan of pageants. I really don't keep up well with these things because no matter how much they scream the tagline beauty with a purpose (or is that Miss World's), I find the world of pageantry rather trivial. Nonetheless, I tend to be aware of the Miss Jamaica World and Miss Jamaica … Continue reading What Davina Bennett’s 2nd Runner-Up in Miss Universe Means for Black Women Globally

What It Means To Be Jamaican

I have much more free time these next few weeks so my blog neglect will subside, at least until January 2018. I chose my clerkships well even if I was entirely burnt out last stretch. Watching the sun set over the ocean yesterday and some healing solitude has got me reflecting. Part of that reflection … Continue reading What It Means To Be Jamaican

Overnight Oats Overtaking My Breakfasts

I've been neglecting to publish for a bit because I haven't done anything since July 6 which I felt was worth sharing. There are too many reasons to share; the most important one being school work pressure. I bundled all the hard clerkships for the start of my academic year and if by chance any … Continue reading Overnight Oats Overtaking My Breakfasts
