Harts on Fire!

I should start calling Squeezle "Eye on Harts",her keen eye and swift fingers have pointed out yet another section gone in Harts, Zeal (the one that replaced yellow El Dorado) is sold out!In addition Aaru large headpiece,Benin female,Herland wine,Oceana Blue and Blue/Green are all sold out. I have been sleeping on Harts while sections were queitly being sold out! The remaining sections which are still completely open are Arcadia, which is the cheapest section, Nirvana and Xen all of which are cute costumes at a reasonable price.

What is with this renewed vigour in Harts? It's the fourth day of the new year and they are selling out sections daily! Well I have to say Harts used to the band completely sold out come December back in the day and the few remaining sections are all pretty decent,I would gladly play in any of them, so for anyone who had an eye on Harts , look sharp they are selling out faster than you think.

Bands are selling out people, can you feel the Carnival excitment?!

Body Art!

This advertisement in a local News Paper recently caught my eye and I filed it away as something to look into that might be useful to all those looking for Body Art for Carnival.



The kisok is located at MovieTowne and yesterday I had a nice little chat with the guy who runs the Bodyart by airtoo business in Trinidad; his name is Robert Reid and he also has a myspace which you can link to here.

In addition to doing both temporary and glitter (sounds fabulous doesn't it) tattoos, they also sell all the equipment for those wanting to invest in doing this as a business as well as they do functions and events; I am thinking TRIBE can hire them do do tattoos for us masqueraders since they only take minutes to apply.The flames in the photo below look hot for Fireman; I can see the guys rocking something like that minus the skull.

Finished air brush tattoo



These tattoos are waterproof, lasts from three to five days , are done using stencils (Robert assured me they have a wide range of over 300 stencils) and the cost ranges from $30.00 to $65.00TT. In addition if you need a link to an airbrush artist he can also supply you with someone who can do airbrushing which is different to these tattoos.

Some of the of stencil designs




And one especially for HOTTIE!


I am liking the glitter tattoos, sounds like something that can replace the body jewelry that I normally buy to decorate my navel. If this tattoo lasts for five days it is a better deal than the stick on navel jewels that always fall off by the end of the day.

If you want more information of how the Body Art is done, and need to see more photos visit the official airtoo website:

The Third Day is the HARDEST!!

Yesterday was the first working day of the year for me and the third day of the six week plan. After getting home somewhat late with a quick grocery stop for fruits and vegetables, I really was not feeling like going walking. I started hatching a plan to do my aerobic work out at home by using a video or running up and down the front stairs or even skipping. I needed to pass this by my hubby, the drill sergeant, so I asked him if five days of aerobic workout needed to be five consecutive days. He did not answer.

As soon as I got home I put down my things and immediately started getting dressed, at least I would try the skipping I was telling myself, knowing deep down I was not up to walking at all. My muscles were sore, I was tired from a long day at work and I did not feel like going out again after driving home. So, I broke out the jump rope and started skipping in the yard. Soon enough the hubby came to join me and while I was doing nice, clean jumps like a boxer, he was lifting his legs way up high and cracking me up, to his credit he did last longer than me though.

I must say the skipping invigorated me, I kept trying to beat my husband in how many jumps we could do and after that session believe it or not I was ready to walk. We did one turn around campus, power walking along the way and stopping in front of the library to skip; I kid you not! The students passing and seeing us doing a skipping contest were probably baffled as to who we were and what we were doing.

In the end it turned out to be a great work out and no pics of me today, but here is one of the “drill sergeant” skipping in our yard:



and on campus:
