Why Barbados NEEDs to be the next place you visit...

Picture this…

We touch down in Barbados, the sun in shining, there’s a chap playing steel pans and we’re greeted by our driver with a rum punch. After nearly 10 hours of travelling and jet lag kicking in, it’s not hard to imagine that we’ve just landed in heaven. AKA Paradise. Or most commonly known as Barbados.

I’m already apologising (and internally cringing) for sounding like an absolute cliche but oh my god I genuinely left a piece of my heart in Barbados! (never a truer word spoken, PROMISE!). From the second we landed I was in love, irrevocably in love with an island - it’s fair to say that I’ve never felt that strongly about any place before. EVER. Barbados just seems to get a hold on you, a vice like grip that you can’t quite get out of. It’s not just a place, it’s a feeling. You need to visit (or if you previously have) then I know you KNOW what I’m talking about!

I'm going to go as far as saying it was the best week of my life, we partied hard for crop over, had the most incredible group of people who made the trip one in a lifetime and we stayed in some beautiful hotels (more on where we stayed and crop over soon!), but for now, let me help you understand just how Barbados is the best place in the world and why it needs to be the next place you visit...

We swam with turtles and it was one of the most surreal and beautiful experiences I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying!

The beaches will take your breath away, some of the most stunning sites - the place is seriously postcard perfect!

We had a dance class learning to 'wuk up' - the traditional Bajan dance (it was possibly the funniest thing I've ever done!) - then we had a week to party and put our moves into practice!

The best group of people who made my trip unforgettable, so much love for my Bajan fam! <3 We spent the day on a Jammin Cats boat cruise where we partied and drank rum from 10am… it was a good day!

    I don’t blame you for labelling this the best week of your life – it looks SO beautiful there; getting serious ‘happy’ vibes from this post! I love your printed off-the-shoulder maxi dress by the way.
