Sandy Lane

We meet again little gremlin. I need a monkey. Someone help I am having a Justin Bieber moment.

Wrap skirt: Jordan Taylor Kimono: Goddess of Babylon Bag: Miss Mochila Shades: Tom Ford

I love this kimono by Goddess of Babylon. One of my favorite beach pieces because it goes with anything and has such versatility. Plus the quality is great which is extra important with beach wear. It’s one of those pieces that just makes you feel chic on the beach-which can be hard, I know girls.

The world is your oyster. Go make pearls.

If you get lucky, you get a Mercedes taxi. The range of taxis here is drastic. Range Rovers to vans.

Lunch at Sandy Lane. Love the marble floors. And flowers. And ornate mirrors. And view. And staff. And drinks. And food. And the displays of food. And the perfectly circular melons on our drinks.  And the Europeans surrounding us everywhere. And everything really. Gorgeous resort.

Duty free. Duh.

Dinner at The Cliff….Best dinner of the year. The food, staff and obviously the view were spectacular. We tried going here for lunch but they were fully booked so definitely make reservations ahead of time and go here.

The ambiance was perfect. I felt disconnected from the world, or technology anyways, and enjoyed every second here noticing each detail of the restaurant and my surroundings. The burning torches gave it that exotic Caribbean feel (or Survivor) and the sounds of the crashing waves made it that much more of a serene and intimate setting. I loved being the last people in the restaurant drinking white wine by candlelight and giggling about different experiences from the trip and the different friends we made. It was pure bliss.

Inspiration of the day:

“There is a kind of magicness about going far away and then coming back all changed.”

— Kate Douglas Wiggin

“The wish to travel seems to me characteristically human: the desire to move, to satisfy your curiosity or ease your fears, to change the circumstances of your life, to be a stranger, to make a friend, to experience an exotic landscape, to risk the unknown.”

— Paul Theroux

“Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.”
— Ernest Hemingway
“There ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” — Mark Twain
“A traveler without observation is a bird without wings.” — Moslih Eddin Saadi
I took a lot of inspiration away from this trip. I love to travel and experience new cultures and I loved the Bajan culture and people. They live in a paradise, how could they not be happy? The sincerity of the culture is what really caught my attention and I really appreciate the little things like that. After all it is always the little things.


Song of the day: “Drunk in Love” by Beyonce
