Trini Vibes

Trinidad is absolutely beautiful. The past two days on the island have made me feel like I’m right at home. Within my first hour in Port of Spain, I went to get a haircut at a random barber shop I found just a few minutes from the apartment I rented for the week. The cut was […]


The Bermuda Way

I was in Puerto Rico when I received the message. Bermuda Fashion Festival was happening, and I was invited to participate as a model and explore the beautiful island and all it had to offer. I’d never been, and it wasn’t on current travel bucket list, but I jumped at the opportunity. I’ve always heard […]


Travel Files: A stroll through Old San Juan

Kali picked me up from my hotel Friday afternoon. I climbed in her car, and we formally introduced ourselves to each other. It was our very first time meeting. I immediately noticed her striking bone structure and kind eyes. She wore minimal makeup, a headwrap styled into a mohawk and red lips. She told me […]


Travel Files: Puerto Rico in May

I stayed in a small boutique hotel just steps away from a beautiful, quiet beach. Acacia Hotel was perfect for my budget during that time, and is conveniently located near plenty of small, trendy boutiques and cute restaurants. My king sized room with a private balcony, over looking the pristine beach, glistened in the sunlight. […]


One Day at Indigo Beach

Haiti has many beautiful beaches. Over the past few years, the country as a whole has been working really hard on making sure the rest of the world is caught up on that fact. Montrouis, a little town located in the Ouest Department, is well known for its beach destinations, which includes Moulin Sur Mer, Club […]


From Jacmel, with love

We got on the road and headed to Jacmel as soon as I landed in Port-au-Prince. I’ve never been, and Gessica wanted to take me. I was so excited! But I tried to remain neutral so I wouldn’t get disappointed. I’ve learned that things are not always what they seem, and by remaining neutral, I […]


A weekend in Philly

Tyler and I left NYC in the worst weather imaginable Friday night. Ok, maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but it really was terrible. We were caught in the storm without umbrellas carrying champagne, a suitcase and giant backpack.  That didn’t keep us from jumping on the bus to meet our friends in Philly. Congratulatory […]


Travel files: Austin, TX

Well done, Austin. Well done. I agreed to visit my fiancé in Austin during his two-month work trip, but I wasn’t at all very excited. Well, I was excited to see him of course, but not very excited about the trip. I kept wishing his work sent him somewhere cool and romantic like Paris, or […]


Once upon a time in Haiti

Once upon a time in Haiti, perfect water droplets danced on our van’s windshield as we zoomed past colorful taptaps on the wet, open road. Green mountains greeted us. We were chasing the sun under deep, grey clouds on our way to the beach. We ended up at Club Indigo where eventually, the clouds went […]
