Trends come and they go–whether they change by the month or season –everyone has a little something “trending” that they’re usually obsessed with for a while and then quickly drop like a bad habit. With social media and technology; my attention span is literally on 1% so for me each day, week or month can bring new exciting, shiny things and sometimes, I just can’t deal from being so overwhelmed.
So to keep it sweet and simple, here’s a few basics that have been keeping me sane in the month of November:
Its evident Miami Carnival had it’s ups and downs especially with Hurricane Matthew not only affecting South Florida but DETRIMENTALLY affecting parts of the Caribbean. It’s definitely something that can not
or should not be overlooked. Prayers are extended to the islands of Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas and southern United States who are STILL recovering from Matthew’s havoc. The news may be old; but the wounds are still fresh.
