Island Gal

I celebrated my birthday in Puerto Rico, which is one of my favorite places in the world.  We had perfect weather, delicious food and so much fun. There is nothing more relaxing or amazing than dining ocean side. We had brunch with the ocean just feet away from us.   I spent my actual birthday drinking plenty of rum on Icaco Beach, which is off the mainland of PR and accessible only by boat. I went snorkeling for the first time too! Oh how I miss la playa (the beach)… Now its back to the daily grind. Le Sigh. Have you ever celebrated your birthday in a different country? xx Nicole

Vacation: a period of travel and relaxation when you take twice the clothes and half the money you need. ~Author Unknown

Be (B)eautiful:  One of my favorite pieces of clothing to wear on vacation (as well as anywhere for that matter) is an off the shoulder top.  I think these tops/dresses are SO sexy! It makes a casual outfit that much cuter and for some reason I just cant help but associate these tops with being on vacay on a beautiful island or somewhere tropical! Be (A)uthentic: If you’re visiting a foreign country make it your business to eat at authentic restaurants that serve that country’s cuisine. Eating at a McDonalds, Subway or Chillis while your on vacay is so LAME. Enjoy the culture and try new things. Even if you’re visiting in the states try eating at places that are different and not found in your home town.  Going on vacation is also an opportunity to SHOP! It’s the perfect chance to buy original items you wouldn’t find in your home town. So explore the local shops (don’t waste your time in stores you frequent while home) and look for unique pieces. There is nothing …

Back from my beautiful trip…

Hi BG’s!! I have been gone the past week on a vacation to Puerto Rico! It was the most amazing trip I have taken so far. Great weather, amazing beaches and ocean views, delicious food, great people, and lots of fun! Sigh…. wish I was still there now… I had planned to bring my lap top with me and update new posts as much as I could, however, I wound up packing way too many outfits that a lap top just wouldn’t fit in my carry on. 😦 But I am back in the states finally and I am tanner, happier,  a  few pounds heavier lol,  but still BADDER than ever!! So I hope you all didn’t miss me too much…;-) Here are a few pics from my trip to the Isla del Encanto!
