Hi there, my name is Vernette and welcome to my blog.

I am a Trinidadian passionate about writing, making money, Carnival, DIY projects, family & yoga (not necessarily in that order). I have a wicked sweet tooth and I assure you, I can eat Tiramisu every day for the rest of my life. Recently I had a wake-up call where my health is concerned (yes my sweet tooth has a lot to do with that) and I’ve embarked on a lifestyle change with a great emphasis on how I fuel my body for life, thus I’ve added healthy, tasty cooking to that list.

This blog is my journey of Love, walking in light and sharing this light with as many people as possible and doing so with passion. Perfection is boring not to mention unattainable. I will use this space as often as possible, to share my experiences with you as I evolve into the me, I was created to be. Here’s to growing, learning and making mistakes, embracing possibility and stepping out in faith.

I wish you light and love always. Life is happening right now. The past is gone and the future is not here yet. Be fully present in this moment because time is the only real currency we have and we exchange it for everything else in this life. My hope for you is that your motive for exchange, will always be Love because anything less is a waste of life.

This is it. You and I, we are here now, this is our time in history, we are blessed with this one body…this is as good as it gets. Make it count. Make it great.

If any of my posts caused you to stop and think or touched you in some way or you simply want to chat for a bit, please feel free to leave me a comment/suggestion/question.

Happy reading.

    So Vernette, you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers, sometimes known as The Spikey’s…. That makes me a happy blogger now – I really appreciate you making that special mouse click.

    Hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.

    If you have any likes, dislikes or suggestions about my blog, just let me know, either through ‘comments’ or via email. Always welcome reader input 🙂

    Have a great old day…

    Very nicely said! We keep trying to reshape and reframe our thinking about healthy eating and staying fit and looking after our bodies. We only get one go at the life we have – so let’s get it right! Look forward to your future posts!

    Thanks for visiting my blog today. I am glad to meet you. I’ve never met anyone from Trinidad and Tobago. I am an ex-yoghini. I wish I had more time to devote to it. I will check back. You have a great blog. Rosemarie

    Vernette, thanks for the like on my Street Life post! So glad you chose to like it because that led me to your wonderful blog! I’ve spent the most enjoyable ten minutes or so browsing through your pages, reading posts here and there, smiling, and being inspired. I particularly got a huge laugh out of your “Inside” photo of the Keurig – brilliant! In fact, I have to make sure to go back to that post and like it! You have a new fan and follower 😀

    Hi Vernette, thank you for visiting Beauty Along the Road. Nice to see the Trini flag show up in my stats 🙂 I, too, have a weakness for tiramisu (and chana roti)…glad you are taking care of your health; without our health, life really isn’t as enjoyable as it can be.

    Very nice blog. Oh I love tiramisu but then bad dreams about “calories” resist me most of the time.:(

    • November 19, 2014 / 2:47 pm

      Thank you for your kind comment Rupali 🙂 I have those bad dreams as well…but I eat the Tiramisu anyway lol.
