Long time no post 🙂 I know I am a bit late but I wanted to share with you guys a couple photos from my trip to Jamaica. I had the blessing of going on a family vacation for Christmas. We stayed in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The water was so beautiful and warm!

The first night I tried Ackee and Codfish (sorry for the blurry photo). This is a traditional Jamaican dish. Ackee is actually a type of fruit but has the consistency of scrambled eggs. It was very interesting!

We went to Seven Mile Beach which is located in Negril, Jamaica! We fell in love with this place. If you are looking to visit Jamaica I suggest going to Negril. The beach there was absolutely beautiful.

We spent the day at Seven Mile beach and when this man arrived people were swarming around him. He was selling Jamaican patties.

Let me tell youuu. They were delicious. We tried four different patties beef, chicken, shrimp and vegetarian. The shrimp patty was my favorite.

Later that day we visited a beautiful underwater cave that used to be a club.

One of my favorite parts was having breakfast with my family with this wonderful view.

Spending all day by the water with family.

We had the privilege of visiting the Bob Marley Museum (there are two in Jamaica, One in Kingston and one in Nine Mile). We went to the one in Nine Mile which is where Bob Marley was born and where his tomb lays today.

The museum was a bit far from everything but it was worth going to.

I don’t want to include too many photos from the museum because I don’t want to give too much of it away (even though I did share a few photos on my Instagram). It was such an inspiring place to go to! This was the view from his house.

Later that day we went to Dunn’s River Falls and it was very interesting! We climbed through the falls which seemed like a very dangerous experience haha. My brother definitely enjoyed it!

 

Jamaica was such a wonderful place! The people there were so kind and friendly. It is a bit expensive to go around. We did hire a private driver, his name was Jarrett and he gave us great deals. If you would like his information please let me know 🙂

I had such a blast listening to reggae music everyday and hearing such kind people saying “no problem” every five seconds. It was my kind of place. I loved it so much.

Thankful that I got to spend some quality time with family in such a beautiful place like Jamaica. Can’t wait to go again sometime soon ♡

Garment District ♡

11180287_949736945082504_909293903_n

Over the weekend I was able to go visit the ever so cool infamous thrift shop called the Garment District. I had heard sooo many great things about this store and so I wanted to go check it out myself.

As I first walked into the store  I fell in love with how characteristic this place was. You could tell that this place carried so much history with each piece of clothing.  Clothing can tell stories and express certain things that words can’t  and I find that so beautiful!!

11160381_949736951749170_1360254113_n

The first floor had a costume section and on the other side was a pile  (mountains) of  clothes on the floor which was the 2 dollars per pound section which was awesome!! Even though the piles of clothes gave me a little anxiety i loosened up and decided to go explore. Which was a great Idea because  I fell in love with this coat that I ended up buying for $2.64… what a great deal right?!?

11160404_949736921749173_1748880457_n

I am wearing the coat in this photo, you can’t really see the details of my coat but I will try and do an OOTD post with this coat.

I had a great time playing “dress up” as well. There were many things that were so much fun to try on but I would never wear on a regular day.

They had sections that were labeled 70’s & 80’s sweaters and womens vintage clothing which was so much fun to see!

Thanks for a great time Garment District, I will definitely be going back again soon…

Do you guys enjoy going thrifting if so what are some of your favorite thrift shops finds?!

with so much love,

Magic Kingdom ♡

11063393_931383790251153_936293734_n

GUYSSSSS!! I went to Disney World (Magic Kingdom to be exact) with my girlies yesterday.

11079693_931380276918171_1282008114_n 11075864_931380253584840_1343320059_n

Can you tell how HAPPY I was?

11040068_931385796917619_9222129_n

I love Disney so much it was so breath taking to see Cinderella’s Castle while listening to all the classic Disney songs. I’ll be honest, I did tear up a little.. the music and atmosphere of Disney was very memorable and beautiful to me.

 (dream goal: I want to stay in Cinderella’s Castle one day)

Don’t worry I let the castle know that I would stay over for a couple nights one day!

11076097_931388506917348_895570936_n

We went on so many rides but the Space Mountain was by far my favorite ride.

We had to get the turkey leg!!!!

11073534_931389216917277_1124064231_n

I literally ate the whole turkey leg straight to the bone

11072082_931391346917064_1365430090_n

We also got cotton candy which is my all time favorite! Getting cotton candy at any amusement park is definitely a ritual for me.

11079692_931393076916891_296359719_n

At the end of the day Disney had a firework show which was very touching and moving (I did cry a little). The firework show was all about “Wishing Upon a Star” and how  you should believe in your dreams. I would definitely recommend if you ever go to Disney to stay and watch the firework show. It was soooo inspiring.

My sweetest  friend Kristen introduced my friends & I to the cutest restaurant in Tampa called The Oxford Exchange.

10893498_930721446984054_786591301_n (1)

The store is also a bookstore, coffee (Buddy Brew Coffee Co.), & tea  (Tebella Tea Company) shop

11073741_930721453650720_1380696998_n

I fell in love with how adorable all the decor was set up

11073544_930721443650721_150953790_n

I ordered the Super Green salad.  I loved that they added fresh feta cheese and avocado but my favorite part of the salad was the dressing which was a “chia-lime vinaigrette”  omg it was delicioussss

11075994_930798466976352_94087278_n

I also tried a few of their beverages , I fell in LOVE with the mint julep so I would definitely recommend that which contained lavender, jasmine, rose, and peppermint.

Thank you Kristen for showing us around I really did love this place ❤
