The Glassesshop.com Grand Prairie Wayfarer and 50 % Off for You

Leave a Comment
I got very excited when GlassesShop.Com reached out to me to review one of their eyeglasses.
Finding glasses online is not an easy task. There are so many styles and sizes to choose from so you need to know not only your prescription but PD (pupillary distance) as well. All this info you can acquire from your eye doctor. Thankfully, I have my prescription info so it makes shopping for eyewear easier but the decision making can still be challenging. After looking through their website, I picked out a frame that matched my new hair color. These glasses are so pretty in pink and purple and they are called the Grand Prairie Wayfarer. Yes, they are bigger than my normal ones but that's ok because they still fit me well and I'm absolutely pleased with them. They are fashionable and comfortable to wear because they have no nose grips.

My new specs came in a sleek plastic case with the company's  logo on it and a cloth to clean them. 
This site has an array of styles and also carry prescription sunglasses as well. 
I have good news for you! GlassesShop.com is offering my readers a 50% discount on their frames with free lenses including sunglasses. (Sale frames excluded) just type this code GSHOT50 at checkout.
Here are some more pictures of my cool new glasses :)

Dust Free Brushes and Blenders

Press SampleProduct given for testing and review purposes at a discounted price.



Good day my friends,
I'm all about finding new ways to store my beauty brushes and makeup sponges. This new acrylic makeup brush organizer is not only spacious and beautiful, it organizes and keeps your beauty items dust free. I like that it comes with pink pearls for decor and for holding the brushes in place. It also has 3 small side deep drawers to hold your beauty sponges or blenders or small items like blushes or lippies. You can really get creative with this organizer and add other items besides brushes, the option is yours. I'm using it to store my Sonia Kashuk brush set among others and the 2 beauty sponges I own and in one of the other drawers, a mini Tarte blush and Bare Minerals mini powder.

The HABIBEE Acrylic Makeup Cosmetics Organizer 

can be found on Amazon for $32.99 with Prime.

Carnival Conquest: ARUBA

Leave a Comment
Welcome back my beautiful friends!
Thank you for taking the time to read about my Carnival Conquest travels.
Here's the last post from my wonderful Spring Break vacay.
Our last port on the cruise was Aruba. Unfortunately, I did not have a good experience there because of a mishap that happened at the beach with one of the employees that worked there and left me shaken but the beach was very beautiful. The trip to the beach was very unique in itself. We took a crew member's advice and decided on Baby Beach on the southern part of the island. This beach is supposed be less touristic and very beautiful for snorkeling at 8ft level.
So we took 45 minutes on two public buses. The first bus was very hot, no AC so the driver left his doors open. We stopped everywhere where there was a bus stop pickup. There were so many students on the bus too from different schools. I loved that I saw many different nationalities and that they too spoke Spanish. Then after that long hot ride seeing the neighborhoods and cacti, we arrived at another bus terminal to catch another bus but this time it was a mini van with AC. 
The family and I spent less than an hour on the beach because of the incident and plus to use the bathroom that I had to wait 40 minutes to open was a cover charge of 2 bucks on top of that. It was ridiculous! After all was over, the employee apologized for what had happened including his coworkers for the drama that occurred. Unfortunately, I can't explain what happened because it's traumatic, embarrassing and upsetting. Anyway, we did not enjoy Aruba as planned and waited 40 more minutes to catch transportation. I didn't even want a souvenir from there that's how upset I was. Next time and if there is a next time, I will go to the busy beaches or places and not the secluded ones. 
Here are some pictures...

 






Nope this was not the bus we trekked on for 40 minutes. Whew! 

The mini bus was the second ride to get to the beach. 
Way better.
 

Baby Beach has a Flintstone theme and it has one bar and an expensive bathroom lol oh yes one worker was dressed as Fred. 
 










 
I captured what the town looked like from the boat. The downtown area was really colorful and pretty with lots of shops. I should have skipped the beach and stayed in town. 😊
 

Stay tuned for more upcoming posts! 😘

Carnival Conquest Cruise To Curaçao

Leave a Comment
Let's visit Curaçao shall we?
I really enjoyed walking around in this beautiful Dutch island. The people were so beautiful and friendly. They spoke various languages and Spanish was one of them.
During the day the hubby and decided to go alone while the kids were at camp on the ship. We shopped a bit, walked around and took photos. Then in the evening we picked up our kids and strolled into the town again. The kids weren't too thrilled at what they saw because they had entered the Curaçao night life which I didn't  blame them because it was for adults. Although, it looked pretty  lit, it wasn't for me as well. I definitely preferred it during the day.
Here are some fun pictures and yes I loved how the ship looked as a back drop.😂









The hubby💕









We laughed at the sign. You know 7 eleven 😁





We saw 2 of the crew members. Barbara our kid's camp Ocean coach who is dating the ship's music director, they are great people and make a beautiful couple.

Ahh, the interesting bridge that separates to let the boats pass by. When that happens you are left behind on the other side with no way out until the gate reopens and the bridge comes back into place.


See they are trapped from reaching the other side LOL



I would definitely like to return and tour more of the island and it's many attractions.
So much beauty and history there! 


Next up Aruba! Stay tuned🤗

Spring Break 2017 on The Carnival Conquest

2 comments
Hello Friends😁
I know, I have been MIA so I wanted to share with you some Spring Break Vacay pics from my Carnival Conquest cruise. My hubby surprised the kids and I to an 8 day experience at sea visiting beautiful islands such as Grand Turk, The Dominican Republic, Curaçao and Aruba.
Unfortunately, it was rainy in Grand Turk so we decided not to get off the ship because we had already visited the beach there two years ago which was gorgeous. So, we stayed on board and I got to take some pics from the deck.

     Grand Turk



Then we headed to La Romana in the beautiful Dominican Republic. Everyone we encountered was friendly. We didn't do excursions but we did get a taxi who charged us a great price and took us and stayed with us while being our tour guide. His name was Alex and he drove us through a luxurious resort called Casa de Campo, a breaktaking river view of Altos de Chavon and a 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village and into town where we shared a meal together at Pica Pollo.

                      La Romana

                 
                 The movies Anaconda and Rambo were filmed here at this pool as well some other films.






















                      The three important instruments used in playing the genre of Merengue Tipico.
                      The accordion, the tambora and the güira:)
                   
                      My daughter trying to play the güira:)

                      My little guy played the güira well:)

Many famous singers such as Frank Sinatra and latin artists have sung and played here at this 5,000 seat amphitheater. Jlo will be singing here next in April. I actually got recorded doing a sound check of one of my songs here. LOL all in fun and experience.


                   
                      Heres an old but beautiful and peaceful Catholic church in La Romana.

                   
                     I just loved the artwork in one of the shops it reads " Jesus is the bread of life"
                     
                      Here's Alex:) Lord bless him. He is a great tour guide.

    My sweet wire artisan bracelet with my name on it, so precious and unique.
    A man named Miguel after my father, crafted it right before my eyes.








La Romana was so beautiful! I'm so happy my kids got to experience a little bit of the Dominican Culture. I'm Puerto Rican so they are our neighbors and they definitely expressed that with a warm welcome when we arrived. 💖


Stay tuned for more pictures of our Carnival Conquest Cruise. Next Curaçao!
