Celebrating 2 Years of Blogging! xo

  I am pleased to announce that Eco Chic Cayman has officially just past the 2 year mark of blogging.  Let the confetti fall, and the champagne corks fly! I would like to take this moment to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of you wonderful people across the globe who read and support my blog.  I am thrilled that you enjoy reading my posts.  Your support means the world to me. Joining the world of blogging has been an incredible journey.  I have enjoyed meeting new people, discovering new blogs, networking with likeminded individuals, supporting local farmers, supporting local environmentally responsible companies and at the heart of this experience, writing articles which aim to raise awareness for the environment and wildlife. Many new blog posts and content to come! Enjoy!   Thanks again!   Have a beautiful day! with love, xo        

The 100th

    The day has finally arrived, the 100th!  Cheers to writing my 100th post.  This is a huge milestone.  I have to admit, I never really thought that one day I would join the blogging world.  I am thankful to those who suggested that I should and encouraged me to do so.  I am very grateful to everyone of you, who follow my blog and read my posts, your support means the world to me!   It has been an incredible journey diving into the world of blogging.  I am still learning about blogging everyday.  I aim to write the best that I can.  To run with my creativity and keep the content engaging and interesting.  My hope is that my posts will inspire.  When I first started this blog, just over a year ago, I never dreamed that it would reach the people that is has.  It was scary, the thought of putting myself out there, sharing my writing, photos, ideas, and creativity with the world.  I chose to write about something I …

Starving for a helping hand

Sometimes it seems like we get caught up in a world that is moving at such a fast pace, and everything around you begins to blend together, and we lose focus of what is actually surrounding us.  Walking through the streets in the city it is so easy to get swept away in the crowds and not notice those who are in desperate need.  With the economic crisis we are are currently facing so many are losing their jobs, homes and it begins to feel like what once was solid ground is collapsing beneath you.  Poverty is everywhere. Astonishing Facts About Poverty “Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names.” “Almost half the world — over three billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day.”  Source: For more information and statistics about poverty Below is a poem which I wrote about the inequality of this world. -Inequality- Hunger Deprivation Empty …

PS- When the clock strikes 12…

As the echoes of memories of this year begin to fade out, the possibilities of change, hope and the excitement of new memories to be made draw in closer. Well, it’s New Year’s Eve… When the clock strikes 12 at midnight, the ball will drop, the confetti will fall, the Champagne corks will pop, toasts will be made, the fireworks will soar fast, light up the sky, burn out and fade away into the night, and resolutions will be made. I think we owe it to ourselves when making resolutions to ask ourselves, did we make good resolutions?  Will we actually work hard at honoring them, and fulfill them.  With every beginning there is an end, and every end there is a beginning, so I wonder, do people really change with the bringing in of a new year? Will we ourselves change for the better? Will we give more to those in need and do more acts of kindness? Will we thank God more for the blessings in our lives?  As for the blessings that we find ourselves …

Fracking: A Mad Rush For Colourless Gold…

Lately, I have been on a bit of a documentary kick, re-watching documentaries and discovering new ones.  In particular, I find environmental documentaries inspiring and thought provoking.  For example, Josh Fox filmed and produced two powerful and informative documentaries, such as Gasland and Gasland 2.  Both documentaries create awareness about the devastating effects fracking is causing on the environment.  Fracking continues to pose many harmful repercussions which impose lasting effects such as contaminating water supplies so much that it is toxic to the point in can catch on fire, air pollution, earthquakes, and illness in animals and human beings.  Thank you Josh Fox for filming and producing two very powerful and informative documentaries about fracking and the toll it is placing on the environment and mankind. Watching a documentary like Gasland, reminds me that art is a powerful tool which can help create positive change in a world that is heavily weighed down by so many issues and problems.  Art has the ability to encourage people to look more critically at the world around us …

Natasha Kozaily: Serenading Renegades… Singer, Artist and Environmentalist

  Photo Credit: Courtney Platt and Natasha Kozaily Today I am pleased to announce that the highly anticipated sophomore album Serenading Renegades by Natasha Kozaily will be released on 25th September, 2013! This summer I was able to catch up with Natasha and talk about her upcoming album and passion for the environment.  The inspiration for this album as Natasha puts it is, “a love story beginning to end, with other imagined narratives.  A lot of it is personal.” For as long as I have known Natasha, she has always been a talented artist, inspiring to those around her, free spirited and concerned about the environment.  I love that Natasha has incorporated her passion for the environment into her love for music.  All of her songs are beautifully written, rich in layers, and straight from the heart.  Some songs featured on the album are “The Tiniest Elephant In The World” which was based on a short story of hers.  “A Song About A Tree” written one day while Natasha sat down at her piano and …
