About a week ago (does shmoney) I got back from my Christmas trip from my home, Barbados. Short but sweet, it was a much needed getaway from the Miami city life and to reconnect with my family, friends, food and culture. (All pics from home are highlighted with the hashtag #246 on my Instagram)
Even though he had already met my immediate family in Miami, this also happened to be the first time my boyfriend, Allan visited Barbados, so with him being Jamaican I was ready to show him another side of island life.
Aside from going to the beach at least once a day, I took him to popular tourist attractions like Harrison’s Cave and East Coast, which isn’t as populated so in my eyes so much more beautiful.
Other than being his little tour guide, it was also extremely entertaining to introduce him to my (overly protective) extended family and witness the threats roll off their tongues… and I quote, “Doan mess ’round hear?” , “Watch yuh self” , my personal fave from my darling grandmother, ” Misbehave and get chop.” So precious.
All and all it was a great little visit back to Bim. Every time I come back home, as ephemeral as it may be, it’s a sweet reminder to appreciate the simple things in life. Barbados brings me back down from the fashion and beauty world and simply reminds me to just breathe.
Back to to recording vids, starting with the highly requested Holiday Make Up featured in my last video.
See you soon xx
