Lying in my bed on the eve of 2013, I’m scrolling through a years worth of blog posts. Nostalgia is setting in. Pass the tissues. Highlights definitely include fashion week and twirling in the teacups at EuroDisney with Shini. A trip to Jamaica also ranks high on the best moments from the year. My favourite post I did this past year has got to be ‘A letter to my fellow bloggers’, wherein I write a letter addressing the misconceptions and lies that surround being a blogger. I loved reading everyone’s comments and thoughts in response to the post. Thanks so much for sticking with me through 2012. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the year ahead.
Happy New Year. Here’s to it being a great one. *clinks glass*
I’m sitting in a cafe in Zurich watching the rain come pelting down. It’s cold and winter is clearly on its way. Despite the frosty weather I’ve been thinking back to the trip I took to Jamaica a couple of months ago. I couldn’t resist reliving it through this post. I had such an incredible time – lying on the beach all day reading books and drinking strawberry daiquiris. It was absolute perfection.
I’ve just returned home from a week spent in Jamaica at Sandals Royal Plantation. Looking back it feels like a dream. Was I really just in the Caribbean for a week? Everything was so perfect and idyllic that it doesn’t seem real.
I spent each day lying on the beach drinking piña coladas and strawberry daiquiris. In the afternoon, when I’d worked up a bit of energy, we’d go sailing or snorkeling. I’ve never been on a resort style holiday before this trip or had an all inclusive experience. Being able to eat and drink as much as I wanted meant I did exactly that… I’m definitely packing a slightly squishier middle section now. It was totally worth it though – the food was delicious. The real highlight of the trip has to be the fact that we had our very own butler for the week. When we arrived we were given a cell phone that we could reach him on. Now that I’m back home I’m totally craving that phone. Nothing equates to luxury quite like white sand beaches and your very own butler. Sandals, I miss you already.
Massive thank you to Sarah at Sandals for organizing the trip.
I’m here in Jamaica and it is so beautiful.
I’m waking up at the crack of dawn to a view of the sun rising over a big expanse of ocean. We’re staying at Sandals Royal Plantation resort. This is the first time I’ve gone on a resort style vacation and so far it has totally blown my expectations. Yesterday I accidentally broke a pair of the sandals I brought with me. I was trying to sew the leather back together and I left the shoes sitting on the desk in the room. When I came back in the evening they had been mended. I didn’t even ask, they just found them and fixed them. Seriously, that is crazy amazing service.
Summer is slowly coming to a close but I’m determined to suck out every last ounce of sunshine that comes my way. For this reason I’m ditching cold and rainy Europe for Jamaica. That’s right baby, as we speak I’m on a flight headed for the Caribbean. See you soon. xx
