Swimming in the Caribbean

The Caribbean is home to some of the prettiest blue waters you will ever lay your eyes on. That being said,  if you need appropriate attire to enjoy these gorgeous waters then there’s a plethora of designers to meet your swim attire needs.

I have to say that I have been a little disenchanted by swimwear lately. The reason for this may be two fold and one of them may have to do with the fact that I am an architect by day. Have you ever heard of form follows function? A lot of swimwear these days just don’t look like they’ll stand up to getting wet or doing any sort of strenuous activities. They look like they’re just made for boat cruise parties and posing on the sand. Others just seem to be the least amount of covering without being deemed as indecent exposure.

But all of that aside, today, I am sharing with you a few Caribbean swimwear designers. I do hope that if you decide to go to the beach in the Caribbean that you will do so donned in an ensemble by one of these designers.

Cutting my hair off…

Having cut and grown my hair out multiple times, I’ve experienced quite a few things in relation to hair and a woman’s looks that have left me feeling some type of way.

Let’s rewind almost ten years… The first time I cut my hair off I was still in high school. I went from hair that stretched down to the middle of my back to hair that I could not fit into a ponytail. I decided to grow my hair a lot longer than I usually kept it so that I could donate it to Locks of Love. It was a pretty nerve racking experience. I can remember gasping with the first scissor snip but by this time, there was no turning back. A few months later I moved to a new school and got the reassurance I needed when one of the teacher’s had peach fuzz because she was fighting cancer. All of my regret, that was mostly brought along by other people’s comments, was erased on the very first day of school.
