“Whey de lime” Fridays: Christmas is upon us!

wdlime_fridays_graphic Christmas

Can you believe it?  The holidays are here! It’s Christmas! C’est Noël!

This is my favourite time of year.  I simply love it.  The memories, the sights, the sounds, the food of Christmases past continue to stay with me.  For me it is not even about the getting of gifts, it’s the whole atmosphere, the feelings, the parang and the pastelles!

So that is what I am looking forward to this weekend.  Christmas.  I am home with my family in Trinidad and I am excited.  

So best wishes from me to you.  Let me know what is your favourite dish for Christmas?

Mine is paimie.

This is a traditional dish similar to a pastel made with ground corn, coconut,raisins, cinnamon and other aromatic spices.  It is quite sweet. Here is the paimie recipe from The Naparima Cookbook

And by the way, if you are still looking for an idea for your Christmas day get-together makeup look, I created this easy, festive red lip here.

Festive, holiday look

Laters!

Wishing you all the best for Christmas! I hope you are spending it with friends and family and enjoying their company.

This continues to be my favourite time of year!  I can’t wait to eat some paimie and black cake and drink some sorrel! Some Caribbean classics…  What are your must eat Christmas foods?

Also kinda anxious to see what is under the tree! lol!

Anyway, Merry Christmas to all!

Tribe Called Curl & Karen's Body Beautiful Holiday meetup!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Just before jetting off for the Christmas holidays, I attended the holiday meetup/conversation/get-together hosted by Tribe Called Curl and Karen’s Body Beautiful.  Tribe Called Curl is an up-and-coming online community dedicated to natural hair.  Imani (the founder) and Karen (from KBB) started the discussion, provided advice and shared experiences on living with natural hair.  There was lots of information, camaraderie and bonding with other naturals!  Of course the product junkie in me had to do a little holiday shopping and picked up some Sweet Ambrosia!! Have you guys tried this?? I had a wonderful time at the event and even had dinner at a really good Egyptian restaurant, Black Iris.

Shout out to Dasheeda!!

So here are a few pics!  Did anyone attend??
