I'm back, slightly under the weather, and fresh from my long-awaited vacation. I road tripped with my friend and her family to our port in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for a Royal Caribbean Western Caribbean 7-day cruise. We cruised to Labadee, Haiti, Falmouth, Jamaica, and Cozumel, Mexico. With this being my first time traveling outside of the U.S. and first cruise, I'm excited to share my experience!
The vacation was an eye-opening experience in all aspects by adapting into different environments and traveling with new people. The ship had a lot of cool activities and amenities to keep travelers occupied; I rock climbed, ate pineapples every single day and a number of other things, danced, people watched, enjoyed myself and all the shows available, like the cinema movies, water and comedy shows.
Today starts my 7-day cruise vacation! This will be my first time traveling outside of the U.S. - and no, Canada doesn't count because it's around the corner from us here - and first cruise, so I'm excited to see what's in store.
Family and friends know I am a meticulous, early, and heavy packer, like crazy bag lady packer. I tend to start packing 2-4 weeks before to make sure I have everything I need and are in order. But this time around, it's been the complete opposite. I finished packing two days before leaving and still had errands like crazy the day before.
For this trip, I only shopped for essentials, like toiletries and flip flops. I surprisingly had enough clothes I liked to not buy new ones, which somewhat sucked lol. Below, I'm going to talk about how I pack my essentials to ensure everything is in place, so expect to see multiple bags and components - remember bag lady.
Bre(anna), Trenae, and I, or known as our group iMessage name, 3LiveCrew, visited Dallas, Texas this past week. And we had a BLAST! This was our first time traveling together since becoming best friends in 2014 and outside of trips to our alma mater. So I was excited when a Dallas based natural hair company, Bella Kinks, announced their third annual natural hair expo.
Below are details and pictures of our experience together!
