Seeking Sun and Sizzle in the Dominican Republic!



In my mind there are no perfect words to describe this kind of beauty.

 I can barely wait to run along the powdery sands and splash around in the

shimmering turquoise sea.



We are putting the finishing touches on our packing today then Scott and I are headed out to the

stunningly beautiful island of  Dominican Republic. We've traveled to the Caribbean before

 (Saint Martin, Barbados, St. Barths, St. Lucia, Puerto Rico,  Riviera Maya, Cozumel) but

this island is a new adventure for us.



We will be staying at Secrets Royal Beach here and then move to Zoetry Agua here, both in Punta Cana.

Both resorts are part of the Unlimited Vacation Club which we joined last summer.

We appreciate the superb service, attention to detail and the luxurious settings

(did I just write that? Okay-we like a little luxury on occasion).

I know, I proclaimed that I packed twice as much as I needed for my previous beachy vacation but I

absolutely couldn't resist these little gold numbers from Calvin Klein

(and they came in every color under the sun) from Zappos.

On a completely inconsequential note, I'm trying out the blue green polish trend (finally!). I think it was a trend 3 years ago, but sometimes I'm slow.

I don't know why bright orange or red toenails seem natural to me but not the blue green shades which are my favorite colors in other parts of my life.

This one is Essie 'Turquoise & Caicos'.


Husband's verdict is yes. I'm still deciding......#not rocket science


Though we definitely plan to unplug and unwind I won't be able to resist posting some tropical shots of paradise on Instagram.

Whether you are traveling like us or enjoying some 'staycation' at home this weekend

enjoy every moment!

Thanks for stopping by today. You make my day!
