#DryLandTouristChronicles: #TBT…Lost Cayman Islands Vlog

Thinking about the Cayman Islands brings back fond memories because my trip there changed my life. Prior to the trip, travelling was always a distant dream for me; the trip made it a reality & not just a wish or a newspaper clipping in a vision box.

#DryLandTouristChronicles: Reach Falls, Portland

Portland is known for its natural & tranquil beauty. I’ve been going to Portland ever since I was a child to visit my family & all those years I hated it! It wasn’t until I became an adult that I began to appreciate how lucky I was to have roots in this tranquil haven.

Now that I am older & my great grandmother has passed unfortunately the trips are less. When my bestie decided that she wanted to go to Reach Falls for her birthday celebration at the end of July, I was more than elated!

#DryLandTouristChronicles: Konoko Falls

Atonement

Atonement
əˈtəʊnm(ə)nt/Submit
noun
the action of making amends for a wrong or injury.

The act of making amends is often times the hardest thing to accomplish. It took me 7 years to realize that a head strong stance I made when I was young & foolish needed to be withdrawn.

#DryLandTouristChronicles : The vibes can’t Dunn!

When my friend Francine told me that she wanted to climb Dunn’s River Falls for her birthday I could not resist this unique way of celebrating her birthday. The week leading up to it we were a bit worried because our friend who was driving wouldn’t be able  to make the trip but we decided to hop a bus & turn the trip into a full on adventure.

I think adventure should be my legal middle name lol.

We headed downtown to the bus park on a bustling Saturday morning to catch a bus to Ocho Rios. We were unpleasantly surprised to find only one bus with only smaller “middle” seats available & we were not about to endure that drama. One of the vendors in the bus park told us our best bet was to take a bus to Spanish Town because the next bus to Ocho Rios wouldn’t arrive until 1 PM…this was at 10:30 AM.

#DryLandTouristChronicles: Paradise Found…My Week In The Bahamas (Part 1)

This is one trip I am more than grateful I had the opportunity to go on. It literally happened in less than a month and a half.

I remember a few months ago I was watching some of my favourite Beauty YouTubers vlog  their experience at The Atlantis & thinking how cool it would be to go there. Who knew that a few months later I would be sitting here blogging about my week on Paradise Island.


Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

The morning of my trip I had to wake up at 5AM because my ride to the airport had school at 8AM. Luckily for me my mom sat with me in the airport until I was ready to go to the departure lounge.

It felt like my flight took forever to board! Once I got on the plane, however, I was more than ready to start my adventure.

The journey to Nassau was smooth & I have to give thanks to Caribbean Airlines for their exceptional service. The only issue I had with my flight was that one particular stewardess was not very friendly especially to the lady sitting beside me. I don’t know if she was having a bad morning or what

The Lynden Pindling Airport was massive! I felt like I was walking FOREVER to the Immigration desk.

Shanny’s Airport Survival Guide

It has been a week since I returned from my latest trip and while I was at the airport in Nassau I decided that it would be cool to share a few tips on how I survive the airport whenever I am taking a quick trip overseas, especially for shorter flights (under 2 hours).

Camo Chic

It’s been awhile since I did an outfit post. I wore this look in January but I am still so in love with it that I decided to share it.

I dubbed it Camo Chic because the military jacket was definitely the star of the show. I know that there are a few countries that ban the wearing of camouflage; the beauty of this look is that it is laid back so the military jacket can easily be substituted with another statement jacket.

Attempting to dye my hair purple taught me a valuable lesson about failure

I was hell bent on entering 2016 with a new look. It would be a physical manifestation of the year of change I anticipated the new year to be. I decided that purple, a symbol of royalty, would be appropriate for my mane.

I went to the beauty supermarket near my office & bought the dye. So on December 31, when some persons were getting ready to go to church or party, I was in front of my bathroom mirror tools in hand.
