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*

10 Activities To Do This Summer

Woohoo It’s finally Summer.

Well, it officially started last week Wednesday with the longest day of the year.

By now, school should be out and I know most of you have been looking forward to this season for a time to relax.  Usually on summer vacations however, after the first two weeks when you’re all caught up on rest it starts to get boring.

That’s why I’m here to help you out!
If you know you’ll have a lot of free time and unsure of what to do with it, check out my list of activities you can do this summer.

P.S. – Even if you’re not free from school (summer semester) and have extra time on weekends/after work feel free to try an activity.

GET CRAFTY

Check out Pinterest for Summer DIYs that you can do in your spare time. Maybe there was a project you saw somewhere that you always wanted to do? You can make a few things to redecorate your room/apartment/office and even gift them to friends/family.

BE ACTIVE

Okay, maybe you didn’t work on that Summer body during the spring or had enough time during school. Well now you have all the time to get your body ready for the next season. Generally though you should always try to remain active for good health. Try a recreational sport, join a gym or simply walk/run in your neighborhood.

Read good books, eat well or at least well enough, be active, sleep. Start caring for oneself. Spring.  Rebirth.  Metaphor. Words.

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 // 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.

Stay-cation // Birthday Weekend

Hey Guys!!

So my birthday came and went and all the celebrations are now over. Left up to me I wouldn’t have made any plans because I’m not into the big birthday celebrations anymore. My circle definitely got smaller for one, so there’s hardly anyone to celebrate with plus nothing ever goes as planned.

However, my parents decided to treat me to a weekend at a hotel; they’ve all done this before, but this was my first time. Our hotel of choice was The Verandah Resort & Spa.

The hotel is located on the eastern side of the island and I live on the western side, so it was about a 30-40 minute drive. We got out there at about 12:30 p.m. checked in then went to lunch until our room was ready. After lunch we basically hung around the bar to kill time and just relax.

Our room was ready around 2:00 p.m. and while collecting my keys I received a complimentary bottle of champagne for my birthday gift. Yay!

The room was gorgeous and spacious. The colors, the art work on the walls and all the amenities provided were A1. I could stay in the room forever, and don’t talk about the view! My only regret was not capturing a picture of the sunrise/sunset.

There are three pools located around the resort, as well as access to two different beaches. Unfortunately, I never visited the pool but I did go to the beach as seen above (first image). The landscape around the resort is also very beautiful and relaxing.

Overall I had a great time and enjoyed the weekend; It was a good getaway. My only disappointment was with the food which is enough to make me question a repeat visit. I also got cake and was serenaded by the workers at a dinner, after party with live band and breakfast. They sure know how to make you feel special!

 

That just about wraps up my weekend! Hope your weekend was just as good.

 

Stay Tuned
