Hello lovelies and welcome back to a new post. Gosh it feels so weird having a little break from it all but it was much needed. After I came back from holiday I started job hunting and trying to get back on track, and with daily blogging straight for over 6 and a half months, I think I just needed a little time away. It’s helped me find my motivation and mojo again, so it was all worth it.

I’m back with a new travel/fashion post. Whilst I was away and during the past weeks off, I’ve thought a lot about switching up my content more and sharing more about me and what I love as well as beauty. Fashion and travel are becoming huge passions of mine to and I have so many ideas it’s quite motivating. Changing up my content is something I’ve been thinking about for a while and I hope you enjoy it. Now, let’s get into it.

A few weeks back I embarked on my first ever trip to the Caribbean. It’s a destination I always thought I was far off from being able to travel to, but when we found the perfect trip to the Dominican Republic it just had to be ours. We stayed at Excellence El Carmen in Punta Cana, a 5-star luxury resort that was far away from everything, which in my opinion is pure paradise. When I travel I like to get lost in myself and relax, explore and soak it all up. Since finishing University in May I’ve needed an escape from it all and this was my treat for surviving the past 3 years and coming out with a degree!

Our hotel was located right on a private beach, so to my liking much of the trip was spent relaxing by the ocean or the pool.

However, as I said I do love to explore. For a day trip we decided to head out and visit Samana, a mountainous buy cheap ventolin online terrain located on the northeastern Atlantic coast of the island. In this part of the island, we spent the morning travelling to Samana on a Catamaran, visiting a local plantation farm and trekking through the jungle on horseback to a beautiful waterfall – all of which I’ll be writing a separate post on as it was an experience I HAVE to share in great detail. It was just insane. I never thought i’d horseback in the Caribbean let alone through a jungle?!

From there on we headed to Bacardi Island, also known as Cayo Levantado, a teeny tiny remote island with stunning turquoise waters and white sand beaches. When we hopped off the Catamaran and stepped foot on the island I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. The island was so quiet and unpopulated it really was true paradise. After dipping into the blue waters and soaking up the sun we decided to fly the drone and take a look at the surroundings, which by the way totally blew my mind. Once the drone had flown up just a few seconds the entire island was in shot, putting into perspective how remote it really is.

I could honestly live on a remote island like Cayo Levantado as I was seriously in my element and didn’t want to leave. Fresh coconuts and constant sunshine? Yes please. Living in swimwear wouldn’t be too bad either, better than having to wear jumpers and sweats throughout our British summer ay?

This bikini I managed to get my hands on was a lifesaver for this trip. Not only was it a complete bargain, it felt so luxurious and complimenting. I’ve never felt so comfortable in swimwear as I have with this. You can find it (and similar pieces) below.

What is paradise to you?

The Mauritian Diaries continue with part 2, as one post just wasn’t enough to show and tell you how beautiful the island is. There’s so much so share that this travel diaries will be a 3 part series. Mauritius is an island nation in the Indian Ocean, just over 2,000km off of the Southeast coast of Africa. The tranquillity and richness of the blue waters and white sands is really something special and obvious to picture due to its location. Paradise is real, so let me share with you snippets of the best bits.

Never before have I been to such a place, somewhere tropical and relaxing, and this island made all of my dreams come true. Not only is their beauty, there is so much culture in the inner parts of the island, which was an amazing opportunity to see. Even at the hotels, the culture continued with incredible cuisines and décor. We stayed at Lux Le Morne, a 5* resort on the southwest coast in Le Morne, a very remote village. The hotel was outstanding and really exceeded my expectations of being an ‘insta-perfect’ setting. I can just picture that this is what heaven would really look like with its infinity pools, fresh coconuts, a beautiful spa and a white sandy private beach. There isn’t much more you could ask for.

In terms of location, if you’re looking for a peaceful, luxurious and relaxing getaway then this place on the island is the perfect spot. Whether you’re into water sports or just lounging by the pool or the blue waters, then they buy cheap accutane online have you covered. I’m usually one to want to relax in the sun all day, but the water sports and excursions in the hotel were incredible and too hard to resist. You can choose from long bike rides through the island to discover new remote beaches or go snorkelling, kite-surfing and canoeing in the vibrant blue ocean. There’s everything you want here, I’m telling you! Every corner you turn you just want to take a picture.

One of the best activities and experiences was visiting and climbing Le Morne Brabant, the islands highest mountain with a summit of 600 metres. I’ve never climbed a mountain before, so it was scary and tougher than I thought (as it was all rock climbing, not just a simple climb!) but it was an incredible experience to see the island, lagoons and views from the top. You are taken up by an experienced islander, who tells you all about the culture, history and secrets of Mauritius. It really is an opportunity you should never turn down, and since this holiday my mind has really become set on wanting to try new things out of my comfort zone.

This holiday has really inspired me to want more from travelling, to experience more things and be more adventurous. I will be writing up another post sharing more about this incredible island, there’s so much more to share and it may inspire you to try new things!

What places have come away from and been inspired?
