Travel : Dreaming of St. Kitts & Nevis

I love traveling and I haven't left Barbados in almost a year - quite possibly the longest I have ever been home without a trip overseas. I have been very blessed over the years to explore exciting places and travel a couple of times each year. I have already planned a trip to NYC in summer and will be going to Antigua in a couple months but have been thinking of joining my grandparents on their trip to St. Kitts & Nevis. I visited the St. Kitts Tourism website to start doing some research on the island and of course being the social media nerd that I am also I followed St. Kitts Tourism on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. See below some of my finds from the official St. Kitts Tourism website. 

Accommodation : Belle Mont Farm at Kittian Hill. The farm is comprised of 84 Guesthouses, 12 three-four bedroom villas and 7 four-bedroom Farmhouses set within a tropical organic farm. See more here

Love for a Lifetime - Choosing the perfect ring!

Wedding season is fast approaching and perhaps one of the most important factors is the ring! I have been planning my wedding since I was a little girl and have endless pins on Pinterest of decor inspiration, dresses and of course rings. Simone from The Royal Shop talks to us about the process of choosing the perfect ring and gives her advice. 

Home Tour: Going Green

Interiors are my first love and while I am far more busy than when I started the blog I still like to make time to visit some of my favorite websites and blogs. While browsing on Lonny Mag I came across this home by designer Jennifer Jones of Niche Interiors. What initially caught my attention was the clean lines and simplicity of the space. I became even more interested when I read that the home is eco-friendly and encourages sustainable living. This is something that I have been trying to learn a little more about and Jeniffer is an expert! See more on this contemporary and eco friendly Silicon Valley home on Lonny.

Life as I know it

It's been a while since I have posted one of my "Life as I know it" features. Things have been incredibly busy and I will soon have some very exciting news to share! In between the meetings, emails and overall madness I made time over the weekend to stay at my families beach house. While I wanted to sit on the verandah all day and read I went for a nice walk with my Mum, sister and boyfriend to a beach a little farther away to swim in the "pools".

Wine and Cheese Pairings with Platinum Wines & Relish

Two Fridays ago I attended an event at Relish Dockside at the newly built Port Ferdinand Marina. The event was a collaboration between Platinum Wines, Relish and Hatchman’s Cheeses. The pairings were thoughtfully chosen with each wine complimenting the cheeses perfectly. Daniel Lambert of Daniel Lambert wines was the co host for the event and gave us some interesting history and facts behind the wines. The first Relish Craft Canape was the Amuse Bouche - St. James Smoke House Smoked Salmon Tartare with Champagne and orange infusion. All of the food was phenomenal but that was definitely one of my highlights. The Amuse Bouche was followed by four appetizing cheese courses as seen below.
