Pig Beach – Big Major Cay, Exuma, Bahamas

Where does your passion for traveling come from?
I grew up in a family that loves adventure and to travel. My passion for travelling definitely stems from my childhood.

Miami, Florida

What inspired you to start your blog?
I wanted to have a little creative outlet where I could write and share with the world my take on fashion, travel and lifestyle. It always gave me great joy helping friends put together outfits or offering vacation suggestions for destinations that I had been to. That’s when I decided that starting a blog would hopefully help more people in a similar manner.

Hollywood Beach, Florida

When you’re in the picture who’s taking the shot?
It’s always my dear husband Anush! This blog wouldn’t be possible without his incredible support.
What are your top tips for taking stunning vacation photos?
I always try and do some research on the vacation spots we will be hitting, so that we can plan for the best time to take photos, which can depend from place to place. I also love planning my outfits in advance for the most part, like for instance when I knew we were going to Aruba, I wanted to wear a pink bikini on Flamingo Beach so that the photo would look more appealing. Aside from pre-planning, it helps that I am super comfortable in front of my husband as a photographer, so we just have fun in the moment and capture our fave travel moments.

Flamingo Beach on Renaissance Island, Aruba

What are your suitcase essentials?
I’m always traveling to a warm destination for the most part, so my essentials are a bikini, denim shorts, a floppy hat and of course all our camera gear!
What are the top 3 destinations you would like to visit this year?
I would love to visit Greece, Colombia and maybe a new island in the Caribbean that I haven’t been to – like Jamaica or Turks and Caicos.

Compass Cay, the Bahamas

What beauty essentials do you never leave home without?
Chapstick, body mist and hand cream.
What’s your favorite Instagram picture?
I have many to choose from, but I think this one of me riding the horse in Anguilla is definitely one of my favorites, it was such an incredible experience.
