“There are two speeds in Aruba, slow and stop.Dushi!”


Why Aruba?

The hustle and bustle of my life has been a little stressful. Your girl needed a break. I knew I wanted to be in a place where I could just chill and relax. Someplace exotic and away from the noise. Then I said to myself, “Aruba.”

Curls In The Sun

Protect your curls at all times! The sun in Aruba is no joke. The wind is your constant friend and will help to keep you refreshed, but honey the rays from the sun will kiss your curls. Like mmm mwah.

I got back to my hotel the first night only to discover my curls were brittle. I can honestly say I learned my lesson. While out and about, I would wear a hat or lightly mist my hair with some rose water. If you go to Aruba with your natural hair, make sure you show it some love by keeping your hair moisturized.

What to do?

Have fun and eat well. BIBA DUSHI is a local saying which means “living a sweet life.” And believe me, life is sweet in Aruba. From the creamy gelato at Gelatissimo to the fine dining experience at Madam Janette’s. Enjoying the carefree lifestyle as a local is quite easy to do.

Le Filet Mignon “Gianni Versace”

While soaking up the sun my inner child decided that she wanted to come out and play. I allowed my imagination to run wild and built a sandcastle on the shore.

I also laid around to see one of the most breathtaking things in the world, the sunset. As the day began to settle into the night the sun slowly faded into the sky above the clear blue waters. It was a sight to behold.

Aruba is a great place to reset. It was exactly what I needed.

Where do you go to get away and relax? Share the deets below in the comment section.

Peace, Love, and Curls
