Shopping landscape of the Caribbean

 Fashion landscape of the Caribbean, and how different shopping is on a whole.

I live in the Caribbean, and understandably, everything here is quite different to other more metropolitan countries such as the U.S.A and England, which have huge cities such as New York City and London. That is not to say that my region is not developed. It is, very much so. I hasten to make this point as I have been told stories of well- meaning tourists who were surprised to find we have wi-fi, multi-lane highways, and a very highly-rated educational system. However, in some aspects, the Caribbean is a wee bit behind. I mean, of course, in terms of fashion shopping. (You didn’t think I would tackle a serious topic, did you? I am the fashion-obsessed Misnomer after all. J

Five things you didn't know about the Misnomer


First things first, I know that I've been a bad, bad blogger. I haven't posted in ages, due to a mixture of unforeseeable circumstances, a heavy workload and bad time management. Anyway, excuses aside, I'm really sorry. And knowing I really couldn't put off posting very much longer, as my last post is soon facing its one month anniversary, I decided I really needed to post something, in hopes that my thirteen followers can find it in their hearts to forgive me.
So here we are. I've decided to do one of those 'Five things you don't know about me' that everybody gets annoyed by, but can't help reading. 

Five Things You Didn't know About the Misnomer
5. I wear thick, red-framed glasses that you may never see me wear as not only am I trying to be enigmatically anonymous here, but they are also kind of unattractive. I only wear them to uni and at home.

4. I have an unhealthy interest in pictures of people smoking cigarettes, although I don’t smoke myself.
