Hey Friends! I’m back with a more secure way to tie wire bra’s. Shout out to the homie @Geswanders for showing me this gem of a method during Miami Carnival. In the video you will see that I’m tying this bra without assistance; however, an extra set of hands is always
T’ingz Nice started in 2014 in the form of written expression before anything else. Here you will find “ancient” pieces from my neo years as a Caribbean carnival junkie. In addition to carnival coverage, you may also stumble upon recipes and random recaps of non-carnival experiences. Now that we are in the post-pandemic era, you will find more recent carnival articles.

Here’s my recap of the best Easter ever! If you haven’t visited Jamaica’s countryside I need you to add it to your travel list. Do something different before the Kingston turn up and take some time to relax. That’s exactly what we did. Let me know if you plan to do the same in 2019.
For clarity-sake, let’s start off with a definition: Fete Spouse (FS): A person with whom you have great chemistry on the dance floor.

How dare designers create something so revealing! My, my, my how times have changed. Regular padded bra’s are almost a thing of the past and women who said they’d
There comes a time in life when you just need to get away. As an educator, I can attest that the end of June couldn’t come soon enough. There was a super long stretch of work with zero days off after Memorial weekend and I needed something to take the edge off ASAP. Hookie Weekend
