Blogmas Day 7 // A Holiday Drink

I don’t know about you guys, but one of my favorite holiday drinks is Sorrel. I look forward to it every year and get so excited when I see my grandmother has finally made it.

Sorrel drink comes from the plant Roselle (Hibiscus Sabdariffa), which is a species of Hibiscus native to West Africa. It is made from the petals which are boiled then strained with added flavors and sweeteners.

1 // What does Christmas mean to you?

Christmas to me, means family time, celebrating with loved ones, reconnecting with old friends, giving as well lots and lots of food haha. I love that there’s a festive feeling in the air and it also signals to me time for reflection and keeping things close that keep me grounded.

Blogmas Day 4 // A Caribbean Christmas Pt 1

Remember when I promised you guys something new this blogmas? Well, here it is! Instead of sharing with you my story, I decided to question some of my other Caribbean bloggers and share their stories with you. It will be a three-part series in order as to not have a lengthy post.

In the tradition of keeping it short and sweet, I simply asked each blogger two questions ~

1 // What does Christmas mean to you?

2 // How do you celebrate the season in your country?

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”

Eat Outs // Garden Grill

Hey Guys!!!

Happy Tuesday & I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend. Since I returned home last summer I made a list of restaurants I’d love to visit.
Well, one year later I finally made it to one of my top places.

Garden Grill

Located at Dutchman’s Bay near the airport, Garden Grill serves as a rather open, friendly, picturesque restaurant. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on select days. We opted for lunch on Saturday afternoon.

Before you enter, you’re greeted with chalkboard signs welcoming you as well as views of the garden and a pool that you’re welcomed to use. It’s an outdoorsy setting; seating arrangements are under a canopy. Unfortunately, Saturday was incredibly hot so there wasn’t any breeze really. Thus it was slightly uncomfortable.
