Carlene – 5mins 2 Shine Feature ILLAMAN March


Hey y’all!

Yesterday this chica was chillaxin all day! The weather was gorgeous. Had an unplanned visit from the in-laws in the morn….you’ve never seen me clean my apartment faster! Husby’s cousin is over from JA….big ups Shenique!!

After half a day of playing phone tag with my homegirl Bev, we finally connected…was so good speaking to her after SO many years! No point arranging to ‘do lunch though’…if our Magaluf days were anything to go by, we’ll be doing shots at some random bar until daylight the following day…those were the days…until I tried Absinthe…NEVER again!

Your support

Thank you for your HUGE response yesterday…I have been smiling like a fool for the last 10 days!! We have passed the 1600 hit mark! Sheesh!

Yesterday’s 5mins 2 Shine feature Pat Brown has been creating a storm with her sexy designs…make sure y’all show her some love puuurlease…& fellas NO the models do not come inclusive with the designs…y’all have been buggin’!!

Just for the record, I have interviews lined up until 9th April already…if you would like a spot holla @ me @

Just wait til you see who’s been sending me their answers πŸ˜‰

5mins 2 Shine

Today’s feature is:



2) Where do you foresee yourself 12months from today?

I see myself in 12 months where I saw my months 12months ago from today.. Climbing the ladder of success, finding new ways to test myself and making parties go bananas!!

3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

Has to be my first show, a competition at a battle of the bands when I was in a metal/hip hop/drum & bass group.. We won! Never forget it..



4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

Racism and ignorance to other cultures is still something that bothers me on a daily… So I guess I would bring people together and teach them how beautiful and amazing other culture and ways of life can be! Being that I come from a very mixed family I feel lucky and privileged that I was raised around that.

5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)

Being that I know Carlene from when she was here in LDN I would say its a great representation of her character.. Bubbly, happy, full of wise words and true to her!!!
