Make mine a midi!

Not only is the midi-skirt back; it is satin and dials up the danger with leopard or cheetah print. Apparently, if  you don’t have one of these in your closet, you can kiss your social life ‘goodbye’. What was all the rage in the summer has definitely made its way into fall and let’s face it – a midi-skirt works in Cayman when the mercury dives to 78F. Head to the bars and you’ll feel like you’re on safari. Note: no animals were hurt for this trend.

Partybooth proof

If you want to keep track of everyone who showed up to your party (and have a photographic accounting of how they all enjoyed themselves as the night wended merrily on), just hire Partybooth Cayman.

With full booth and open-air setups, not to mention lots of wigs, hats and other accessories to spice up the pics, this company will provide the backdrops and a photo butler to run things. You get printed and digital photos at the end. Let the blackmail begin!


Selfies, belfies and slofies, oh my!

Selfies are here to stay, thanks to a whole section of the human race that is desperate to share itself with the  world.

We hadn’t heard about belfies until recently – a witty word combo of butt and selfies – where posteriors get their moments in the limelight.

Now Apple has released its latest word, ‘slofies’, as a term for the slo-mo selfie video feature that will be available in all its new iPhones. Sweet Jiminy Cricket. Word is it’s trending, but not in a good way.

Bamboo is best

Believe the buzz – bamboo sheets are all they claim to be. Soft, silky and cool; the perfect choice for anyone living in the Caribbean.

We bought ourselves a set from Cariloha after gasping a smidge at the price. That gasping was put to bed (mirth), however, after sleeping a night with them. Wondering what to get that friend who has everything? This is the gift that keeps on giving. Just make sure you’re getting the real thing. We bought an imitation set by mistake and it was like sleeping in ground bamboo.
