Polka Dot Bikini Girl

Greetings from Barbados! It is surreal I am here. This is my first time visiting the Caribbean islands. Barbados is definitely not what I had expected, to be honest I wanted to visit the island because Rihanna is originally from here lol. Upon arrival the first thing I noticed was there was little to no tourists, I am guessing when people visit they must stay at all inclusive hotels because tourism is almost non-existent. I personally like it better this way because it's more of an authentic experience but it makes it difficult in terms of finding restaurants near some of the beaches. The locals are super friendly, probably some of the nicest and most helpful people I have met in my travels. It is also somewhat affordable as our US dollar is worth twice the Barbadian dollar. My sister did a little bit of research and found out that Barbados is a pretty safe country to travel in and getting around the island on the bus is very easy. The bus costs $2 Barbadian and goes everywhere. They also blast island music on the buses which I have a deep appreciation for, it is like a little party bus :)
I am sad we leave literally a few weeks before the Crop Over Festival. I will have to return for the festival one of these years. Have you guys visited any of the Caribbean islands?

Como la Flor

As you know, when you go on vacation and stay at an all inclusive resort you spend majority of your time poolside or at the beach. Wearing a swimsuit that is versatile for both and easy to tan in is a must. I fell in love with this vintage inspired floral swimsuit almost immediately. I adore the flounce detailing it has around the bosom and the hips, it adds a fun and flirty feel. I will miss the clear sea green water, our gorgeous resort, the memories we made during our stay... oh Cozumel, I will miss you...

the seaweed is always greener

I recently took a mini vacation to Cozumel, Mexico and was blown away with how beautiful the island was. The water was so calm that the resort had hammocks alongside the ocean water. It was so clear you could see different kind of fishes swimming, we even fed them bread one night. The tropical weather was perfect and the resort we stayed at was wonderful, full of fun activities (my favorite being water aerobics and zumba) and continuous food and drinks haha. It rained a few of the days we were there which I think was what brought out the mosquitos because I was literally eaten alive. The 5 days we were there went by so fast! I wore this sea green colored one piece for one of the days that a girlfriend gifted me. It is quite simple yet the high leg cut and the low neckline make it quite sexy. Hope you are enjoying your summer.

Toffee








I recently came back from vacation and the first thing I wanted to do was get brunch with my little sister and tell her all about my trip. I was in Costa Rica for a little over 2 weeks and had such an amazing and relaxing vacation. The whole time I was there I was pretty much in a bikini enjoying the humid summer weather so upon my return I was eager to be able to dress up. My legs are still recovering from being eaten alive by mosquitos so these thigh highs were a must. It has slowly been warming up back home so I opted for this lace embroidered top with these cream chiffon shorts. I threw on this poncho style sweater to keep me warm. It's funny because I actually found this poncho in the plus size section and I couldn't find it anywhere else in the store. Nevertheless, I fell in love with how oversized and baggy it is. Hope all is well <3

Cenicienta












Aloha! It still seems surreal that my sister and I were finally able to visit Hawaii for the first time. It was everything we imagined and so much more. The island was absolutely gorgeous. It was a very short stay but we definitely made the most of every hour we were there. We flew to Honolulu and as soon as we landed we took the bus and explored Waikiki Beach. The beach was full of surfers and tourists and we were even able to watch traditional Hawaiian dancers. Something about the music and the way the hula dancers moved made me feel at peace. The following days we went hiking to Maunawili  Falls in Kailua, which was quite a hike since the bus left us literally on the side of the highway. The trail itself was super muddy and consisted of crossing several rocky streams but once we finally reached the waterfall it was spectacular! Something you imagine for a honeymoon :) I had also looked up Halona Beach Cove which was a more "private" beach, it actually was the beach filmed in the movie 50 1st Dates. It was stunning, it looked surreal! There was a little cave and barely any people. Call me anti-social but I prefer a more secluded beach were you can just be in your own world. Who's with me? What islands have you visited and what kind of activities do you prefer to do?
I wore this baby blue high waisted bikini with laced detailing. The laced up sides accentuated my hips and I loved the off-the-shoulder little sleeves attached to the top, it added a romantic touch. I felt like Cinderella. 
A hui hou...until we meet again.

Veinticinco



Yesterday I celebrated my 25th birthday. Time to go scavenging for some wrinkle creams ha. It still seems unreal to me, I am such a kid at heart so it is strange to think of myself as a twenty-five year old woman. How time flies! I am truly grateful for all that I have accomplished and all the wonderful people in my life and I am eager to see what life has in store for me. 
For my birthday I went to brunch with my girlfriends to one of my favorite spots in Napa. Everyone who knows me knows brunch is my favorite meal of the day. You don't have to wake up too early and you can eat either breakfast food or lunch or both lol. Afterwards, we went to Artesa Winery for some vino. The winery has an incredible view of the valley and it is nice because you can buy a bottle and sit outside and just enjoy the view and the company.
I had the hardest time deciding what to wear, literally clothes all over the floor kind of situation. I finally stopped overthinking and chose something simple but chic. I am in love with everything about this blouse. The color, the fabric, the ruching, the sleeves...need I go on? I tied it at the waist to accentuate my waist and I paired it with my go-to black distressed jeans and studded heels.
