Bermuda Cruise ~ The Island

A few weeks ago, I recapped the ship for our cruise to Bermuda. Today, I'm going to talk about the two days we spent docked at the beautiful island.

After a fun day at sea, we arrived at the gorgeous island of Bermuda. We disembarked, and my patient hubby did a quick blog shoot (for this post), and we walked around the port area checking out shops and the naval dockyard before our afternoon transfer to Horseshoe Bay Beach.

I was so excited to go check out the world famous beach with the pink sand, and it did not disappoint! I was in awe of how gorgeous the water was, and it was surreal to see the beautiful pink sand. Pictures just don't do this place justice!

After the beach, we got back on the ship for some lunch and pool time before disembarking again to do some more exploring. We stumbled upon Fun Golf which is the most gorgeous mini-golf course ever, you can't beat putt-putt with a view!

We then went to go get ready for dinner at the steakhouse that evening to celebrate H's birthday. The food was amazing, and the service was phenomenal. If you're ever on a Royal Caribbean ship, definitely book a dinner at Chops Grille!

The next morning, we enjoyed breakfast on the balcony before disembarking back onto the island. My ever so patient hubby did a second blog shoot for me (for this post), and we did some shopping before boarding a catamaran for our Devil's Isle Snorkel and Kayak excursion.

The catamaran ride over was picturesque, and we even got to see some training for the America's Cup which was neat. We went by a shipwreck, saw a lot of fish and sea turtles, and then dropped anchor so we could snorkel, kayak, paddle-board, and lounge at leisure.

I was so sad to head back to the ship because I knew our time in Bermuda was over, and we'd be sailing back towards the U.S. I had always been told that Bermuda was beautiful, but I was not expecting it to be more beautiful than the Caribbean islands I've visited or even Fiji. If you ever have a chance to fly or cruise to Bermuda, go as fast as you can!

Red, White, and Stripes

I couldn't be more excited for the upcoming holiday weekend. Summer is hands down my favorite season, and 4th of July weekend is the ultimate summer celebration. Other than fun in the sun with friends and family, fireworks, and great food and drinks, is festive fashion. When I saw this hat in the one spot at Target, I knew it'd be perfect for the 4th of July paired with my new J.O.A. blue and white striped dress

Happy almost 4th of July Weekend!

Gender Reveal Weekending

This weekend was a total whirlwind, it was our 6th wedding anniversary (seriously where has the time gone?!) and our gender reveal to find out if this bump of mine is team blue or team pink.

We went out for our anniversary dinner the night before since the gender reveal party was on our actual anniversary. We went out for Italian *of course*, and our waiter brought out a giant slice of tiramisu with our check to congratulate us which I thought was super sweet.

Then it was time for the gender reveal baby-q at the house. I went back and forth on wearing a pink or blue dress, and ended up in a pink and blue bathing suit and a cover-up the whole time which was perfectly comfortable. I'll leave you with a few snaps from the party as well as what color that beautiful cake was when we cut inside...

It's Officially Summer

Happy Friday loves! Looking forward to kicking off the first official weekend of summer!

I'm still loving my new Play! by Sephora subscription, and received my 2nd monthly box this past week. This box blows last month's box completely away, so many great goodies! Especially loving Bumble and Bumble's Don't Blow It, Becca Backlight Primer, and Benefit's They're Real! mascara which is my all time favorite mascara.

I've been obsessing over so many fun summer pieces. Hands down my favorite season on all fronts, but the fashion is endless - dresses, skirts, shorts, cropped pants, bathing suits and coverups, and of course give me all the pineapples!
