Jamaican Sun


Hello lovelies,

Boyfriend and I were in Jamaica last week soaking up some sun! Not that we don't have enough sun and beaches in CA, but it's always nice to take a break to nourish the soul. This was probably our most relaxing vacation yet...


From top left going clockwise:

1. Iberostar Grand all-inclusive resort in Montego Bay
2. one of the nicest/biggest rooms we've stayed at
3. fully stocked fridge but we don't really drink boohoo :'(
4. from the reading chaise looking out to our private patio (omg there's a swing!!!)



I feel like the little Mermaid in this dress hehehe....


Overlooking all of Montego Bay...


1. we took a safari jeep tour to explore Jamaican rainforest
2. haunted tree. it was used to hang slaves back in the days so there are supposedly lots of haunted spirits around there *shudders*
3. waterfall & lush rainforest
4. what used to be a slave hospital but now it's an Anglican church


Nooooo don't jumpppppp!!! :P



Some stuff we ate...
1. starter course with potatoes/tomatoes and some other goodies that i forgot
2. lobster salad with tomato sherbet
3. our midnight room service snack complete with mimosas and ice cream lol...
4. candied salmon


1. lobster thermidor
2. surf and turf
3. phyllo dough filled with vanilla cream
4. saint honore. gosh these desserts were to die for!!!


Boyfriend's choice of morning exercise: karate chops!!!


My choice of morning exercise: playing in the water??? LOL...



Life's a beach... ;) Hope you enjoy travelling along with us to Jamaica! <3 Yeah mon!!!!

  4. kiki: thank you for stopping by. you should try it; you might even jump higher than bf can hehe ;)

    Steph: thank you <3

    Elle: couple shots were done with the tripod. if it's a close up then we use remote, far away then self time + fast running haha. credit to bf ;)

    QFFS: bf will love reading your comment :P he corrected me and said it's a dragon flying kick or something, not karate chops haha. oh and the dress with sneakers...i was debating whether i should wear my flats/flip flops but i'm so glad i didn't! when we got to the waterfall, it was rocky and slippery, i would have died if i didn't have on my chucks hehe :)

  5. I love how flow-y and light the first dress was! It was perfect for the occasion! The close-up of your foot made me chuckle, I dunno why! It wasn't a bad chuckling though! =P Also, is that a six pack I see on your man?? DANG!!! ^_~ Loved your pink swim suit as well! So girly! :D Looks like you two had fun! I wouldn't mind going there one day since I'm more of a tropical gal myself. Can never have too much sunshine!

  14. Ahhh absolutely gorgeous pictures! We were in Jamaica in November - how did you manage to get such great pictures of the TWO of you? Everytime we go on vacation there's either pictures of just me or just my husband - unless we find a place to prop the camera up and use the self timer :P
