Dubai, U.A.E.

  • Dubai/Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
  • September 2018
  • Girls Trip

By far, the best vacation I have had in my life thus far. This says a lot because before, Disney World has always been my favorite place. Dubai was all that and then some. We had such a ball that I literally feel as though a week wasn’t enough. I could have certainly stayed for another 4 to 7 days. While it was the best trip, it was certainly the most expensive. It was worth every penny though. Surprisingly, I still came home with half of my spending money unspent.

We spent a day at a pool/day party, rented a yacht in the marina, visited the tallest building in the world: Burj Khalifa, The Atlantis, views of the only 7 star Burj Al Arab hotel, the beautiful Grand Mosque, Louvre Museum Abu Dhabi, The Gold Souk, Water show at The Dubai Mall, City Center, the amazing Desert Safari experience and made new friends in between.


Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

  • Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
  • June/July 2018
  • Family Vacation

I understand traveling could be viewed as a luxury, but I was amazed at how affordable Punta Cana was lol. This was my family vacation destination this year and we had an absolute blast. A place that everyone of all ages, from 2 to 60 thoroughly enjoyed. From dune buggies, beautiful beaches, parasailing, a party boat and some amazing rose wine, Dominican Republic was a great decision.


Liberia, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

  • Liberia, Costa Rica
  • April/May 2018
  • Birthday Vacation

Costa Rica was absolutely beautiful and humbling at the same time. Although we were right in the middle of the tropical rainforest, we were surrounded by a very under privileged area. We enjoyed horseback riding, zip lining, mud baths, hot spring, and massages on the beach to sum up this short getaway. I would highly recommend Costa Rica as a place to see. I also certainly plan to revisit in the near future.

Makeup Easy

As a traveler who already never wears a lot of makeup, I find this combo created by Nars single handedly, thee most convenient creation for a simple woman on the move. It’s an all-in-one palette that includes contour, blush & a lippy. Just toss your favorite mascara in your case and you’re ready to go. How awesome?!

I just got back from a week vacay and I wish I would have come across this before hand. I found myself stuffing my makeup bag with way more than needed just to be on the safe side. Not to mention, foundation and blush compartments are big individually. I definitely agree that it’s a necessary investment. When you’re already trying to stuff your suitcase with essentials to make life as comforting away from home, the last thing you want to do is take up way too much room with your entire makeup collection. Include Nars travel brush set and you’re all good to go. Easy packing next time! You’re welcome ladies. 😉
