Life as I know it : Bits of Barbados PT 2

About two weeks ago I took a Sunday drive with my Mum starting on the South Coast of Barbados and then through Bridgetown, along the West Coast and ended in Speightstown. I shared some photos already of Speightstown but here are a few starting in town and on the West. Again I can't say it enough that I am so incredibly blessed to life on such a beautiful island! See more photos from my Island Tour here

Cafe Luna

Cafe Luna has been one of my favorite restaurants for many years but I haven't gone in quite some time so I was very excited when they invited me for dinner. Cafe Luna has a unique allure and feels like a secret spot. I went for dinner this past Friday with my boyfriend and it was nothing short of perfection. Cafe Luna combines quality service with delectable food and a stunning ambiance. 

We were very spoilt and sat at the best seat overlooking the beautiful Miami beach. Photo by Steven Cumberbatch of Magical Moments photography.

Subella London

Over the weekend I had the pleasure  of meeting with the lovely Susen of Subella London as well as Creative Director Anna Nicholas and Chris Browne of Fashionable Photography UK. I fell in love with Anna's work when she visited Barbados last year to shoot some fantastic Polo inspired Fashion Shoots. While we chatted about many things over drinks at Lime Bar the main focus was Susen and her amazing Subella London handbags.

One Enchanted Evening with KMLM Charity and The Royal Shop

I have posted about the KMLM ( Know Me Love Me ) Charity here before and was thrilled to be on the committee again this year. We changed locations and moved from Fisherpond to Lancaster Great House. The theme of our event was "One Enchanted Evening" and the location was perfect for this! The event was a success with delicious food from Anna Went, fabulous servers and waiters from Lancaster, fantastic auction items and generous attendees. The Royal Shop participated in a big way and not only donated a stunning bracelet and earrings from Marco Bicego for the live auction but also loaned Roberta, Lady Simpson some Bellari pieces from the Mademoiselle Collection. Rafi wore a smart Rolex also on loan from The Royal Shop.

Life as I know it : Bits of Barbados

Over the weekend I took a drive with my Mum from the South Coast through Bridgetown, along the West Coast and ended in Speightstown. Along the way I stopped to take photos of some of the sights and beaches. I drive to Speightstown about twice a month but have my eyes on the road more than anything else. Mum drove and I was able to look out the window and truly appreciate the beauty. Every so often when I really think about it I see how blessed I am to live on my beautiful island - Barbados. See some of my photos below and stay tuned for part 2 of my island tour. 

I passed some older gentleman at a small fishing area playing dominoes to take some photos of the beach and when I looked to my left I saw these two beauties playing in the surf. It was so nice to see them as they ran excitedly from the waves.
