And now, from the YUMA Vibe Facebook:



Hey YUMA's! As we roll around to 2k12, we again want to thank you for your tremendous support in our first year. Prep for 2012 has begun. We've dropped a hint to our theme (see profile pic) and we are looking for new faces to hit the YUMA runway and for our shoot. Interested parties can email their shots and/or modeling resume to www.info@yumavibe.com. Much love!

Can't wait to see what beats Scorpio, Aquarius, Pisces etc. from 2011 as the 2012 sections everybody is willing to die for!

Will soon be able to add them to list of launch dates for 2k12!

Carnival Updates: Jamaica Carnival 2011, Atlanta Carnival 2011, Trinidad Carnival 2012!

Took a blog break to sort out some other things...and because I wanted the Jamaica blogs to stay near the top a while longer since they are quite a read and take a little time to check all the links (although the men so far seem to just head straight to the pictures...smh).

But the news has been piling up...I already missed the first reports of Shurwayne at Mas Camp for Jamaica Carnival (see that oh so hot picture below from Bachannal Jamaica) so it's time to get back in the game.  Let's do it:

Trinidad Carnival 2012 Band Launch: D'Krewe Carnival Theme PANACHE Saturday June 19!

WHAT?!  What's that? Somebody launching ALREADY?  Yep!  They launched too late last year and I know I for one complained...now, they are ON IT!

RSVP to the band launch event on Facebook!

I've made several other posts on D'Krewe before and their customer service...the costume distribution was chaotic this year but the customer service through it all was friendly and helpful, just like they had been with me since 2009 before even meeting me!  Definitely recommend this band if it's your first time in Trinidad and you don't want a HUGE band overwhelming you (about 700 strong in 2011) or you just want a band where by the end of Carnival Monday it's like that show Cheers "sometimes you wanna go, where everybody knows your name!" :)

I suggest for faster service with your costume on collection day, pay in FULL (or pay the remaining balance off completely) BEFORE the week of carnival.

MANNNNN we've barely recovered from TNT 2011 and 2k12 band launches are already on the way!  I'm trying NOT to say I'm there for sure 2012 cause my homeland (JAMAICA) calling my name later this year and next year BUT! lol I'll definitely be keeping my eye on the offerings for 2012 and seeing what costume (if any) says, like Iwer George, "COME TO MEH"!

Now wondering what the 2012 theme PANACHE is all about!  Cause I sure remember what the 2011 theme RHYTHMS was all about!
