Living Well in 2015

And, so it begins. A new year. A time for fresh starts. A perfect time to focus and to strategize with the goal of living our lives well in 2015. I was invited by Nissan via Mode Media to explore the concept of having it all. As part of this campaign, I watched Latham Thomas, a wellness expert at, share how she gets glowing at home. From bringing the outdoors indoors with fresh flowers to setting up spaces for pampering and rejuvenation, Latham’s home is her sanctuary in fast-paced New York City.

I was so inspired by Latham’s home tour that I thought about my own home and how crucial the setup of my home is to my journey to living well. Born and raised in the Caribbean country, St. Kitts, island culture shaped who I am. My taste in food. My love of vibrant colors. My obsession with roots music. Culture defines who I am and feeds my imagination. Now that I live in St. Louis, over 2200 miles away from St. Kitts (not that I’m counting or anything), I sometimes worry about my distance from important cultural traditions. It’s really important for me, then, that my decor breathes Kittitian culture into my home. The artwork. The artifacts. When I step into my home, I want to be transported to the place that most inspires me.

Making my home feel like a daily getaway to St. Kitts helps me to live well. What does living well and having it all mean to you?

With its stylish looks and premium interior, the Nissan Altima is just as much an individual as you are. Not fitting into one mold is what makes the Nissan Altima not only unique, but very exciting!

      Thanks, Pamzah! It's a spine bookcase. I think I bought the two in my bedroom for around $99 each on sale at Wayfair. Overstock and stores like that usually have them on sale. A DIY version sounds like a good idea though. I should look into that.

    Amazing to know you're from the islands! Me too, well I'm half Guyanese! : ) Your home decor is fabulous. I can't wait until I have my own abode to decorate. You're such an inspiration to me! I need to find the time to develop my style blog with work and graduate school. Any advice?
