Eat Outs // Rum Bus Beach

As the name suggests it’s a Rum Bus; they redesigned an old double-decker bus into a bar then added several cabanas and hammocks, turning this place into an amazing beach bar and restaurant. It’s located on the south-western end of the island along a stretch of countless other beach bars; however the red bus definitely stands out. Next to it is OJ’s beach bar which we visited sometime ago.

We were back and forth trying to decide which place to check out on Sunday and finally went with Rum Bus since there were so many great reviews. Another plus was that the menu was available online so we were aware of the prices beforehand. I don’t know if that’s just a weird thing with me, but I prefer viewing menus online to see whether or not there’s anything I’d like or if I could even afford the place without breaking the bank. Therefore the menu availability was definitely a plus and helped with making our decision to check it out. Continue reading “Eat Outs // Rum Bus Beach”

Summer Essentials // 6 Must-Haves

Hey Guys!!

If you can’t tell by now I LOVE summer! Since I also live on an island where it’s practically summer 365 days a year, why not? If you’re unsure what to do this summer check out my list of 10 Activities to do. However, today I’m here to share 6 of my “must have” items for the season!

BIKINIS/SWIMSUITS

It doesn’t matter where you are *well once it’s summer* you NEED a bikini. Even if you don’t have remote access to a beach, check out a pool or water park. These are two styles I’ve been eyeing for this summer; I found these from instagram: neishonline & hibootyswim *haven’t purchased, pretty sure they’re on other sites*

Sunday Funday // A Beach Photo Diary

Hey Guys!!

Look what made a comeback, yep #SundayFunday. I’ve been inside quite a lot these past few weeks, but I made it outside yesterday! Just like most of my other Sunday adventure posts, I made it to the beach; well more specifically, Maiden Island.

Maiden Island is a small offshore island about 10 minutes by boat from Antigua (depending on where you’re departing from). You can walk around the island and see different views, some of Antigua, Jumby Bay ( a popular Rosewood Resort) and another offshore island in the distance. One side of the island has a dock for access onto the island; this side is also preferred for swimming activities. The other side is usually windier and surrounded by seaweed.

Braid-outs & Saltwater

Hola!

What should have been my weekend in review is now a round-up of my Saturday shenanigans.

*sidenote*

Wednesday was my two month post big chop-aversary (anniversary). I didn’t do a length check, but instead CORNROWS! *at least my sister’s version of them*. Don’t get me wrong I’m pretty appreciative of them, because I could do no better.

Single twists or Bantu knots would have taken forever so I decided to try a “Braid Out” and hopefully it came out how I desired. We all know this is probably not gonna happen right? Continue reading “Braid-outs & Saltwater”

Sunday Funday // Raft Up

Hey guys!!

I’ve been pretty MIA lately and forgot to post about one of my Sunday adventures. Well actually I didn’t really plan to post about it, but hey why not?

Almost two weeks ago I attended an event by the name of “Raft Up: Christmas Edition.”

Sunday Funday //Boat Party

It’s now a given that my Sundays are meant for being on the water. Last Sunday I got invited to a boat cruise as a celebration for a friend of a friend’s birthday. I agreed to go as it was a long weekend and I had nothing else planned.

The boat was set to leave at 10:30 a.m. SHARP but as typical Antiguan (Caribbean) people we left sometime after 11:00 a.m. On our departure out of the harbor the water was a bit choppy so the ride wasn’t as enjoyable.

My favorite part about this boat was the fact that their was a top deck.  It was practically the worst area to be with all the rocking, but it had the best views. We ventured west of the island passing various popular beaches as well as the hidden gems. We continued heading around the island until we got to the southern part seeing areas such as Jolly Harbor and Hermitage Bay.

After making a U-turn we ventured back to a hidden beach which we passed on the way. This beach seems only accessible by boat unless you do some extreme hiking through the bush. I believe its name is Pinching Bay.

The water was nice and shallow, as well as pretty clear. There was food, drinks, music and some pretty cool people, what more can you ask for?

In all the day was pretty awesome and I couldn’t catch myself Monday morning for work *oops*. But as they say, “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.” So let’s see how that goes!

Sunday Funday // Waterpark Fun

So it’s Monday again, start of another week and one day closer to Christmas;
However, before we get into that guess what I did yesterday?
The title is a give away, but yes I went to a water-park.
More specifically, D-Boat.

As you can see this is unlike any other water park; firstly it’s literally on water and its main frame is a refurbished oil tanker. Pretty cool, huh? It’s currently located off the coast of Antigua near to Maiden Island and also serves as a party boat in the evenings.

We decided to spend the day on D-Boat after much planning and anticipation. It’s been opened since 2014 but this was our first time checking it out in the day. There’s a ferry service to and from the ship which lasts less than 5 mins.

Water activities aboard include a water slide, trampoline, rope swing, jump off plank, and a new addition the Fat Boy blob which launches you into the water. If you’re a chicken like me, you can simply lounge around in the water on a noodle or relax on deck and soak up some sun.



The day pass starts from 11 a.m until 5 p.m. with lunch and unlimited drinks included.

All in all it was a good day, maybe next time I’ll tackle the rides *lol*.

Have you ever been to a water park?
What sort of activities do/would you try?

Sunday Funday – Boatin’

Last Sunday was one of my most adventurous days since I’ve been back home. Not only was it last-minute and totally unplanned, but it was worth every second.

First and foremost it was my best friends birthday (Woohoo); so we had lunch then another one of her friends asked if she wanted to come boating *and I totally invited myself*. We left from one end of the island to the complete opposite, about 45 mins the most.

The views were amazing and unfortunately I lost my photos *thanks snapchat*, however I’ll share these.
