FOTD Friday:The Bahamian Edition


Happy Friday!!

[Really quickly---I just wanted to send out my thoughts and prayers to the Jackson family. Michael Jackson's music was a staple in my household. He is a legend. And the beautiful thing about legends is that they live on forever. I believe in remembering the past and celebrating the present (Sankofa). He will join Luther Vandross, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Marian Anderson and others. This PYT will always love you, MJ!]

It just occurred to me that I never posted photos of my trip to the Bahamas. And since my skin is currently enduring burns in 3 places (brown skin DOES get sunburned….I’ll spare you the photos) I didn’t that that doing a FOTD would not be a good idea.

So let’s do a POTD–Place of the Day.

Welcome to Nassau, Bahamas.

I’ve been here once before but really got to explore the city THIS trip.

The first two days were nothing but this…..


I know. Uneventful, right? It rained. And rained. And rained. And rained. Somehow, it didn’t bother me. Being able to sleep beyond 6 a.m. was vacation enough for me! And then around the 2nd day we were there….the sun came out!

Hey there Carnival!

View from my hotel room.



Outside of Atlantis…



….and then inside. The designs are breathtaking.


Fishes!


The sisters posing…


Every single time I travel, I ALWAYS have a hard time taking pictures of everything. I am too busy “taking in” the sites to even think about snapping shots. *sigh* More of a reason to return!

Off to the streets!

Thank you, Courtney for being natural in this photo..


Here goes my Dad…

“Hey Brit, look….there’s a MAC.”

Funny.


But I didn’t buy anything. Wait….now that I think about it, I didn’t get any souvenirs from the Bahamas. Mannnn….

Senor Frogs!

This photo is currently the background on my laptop. Loves it! And I loved the conch fritters there. I will say the BEST conch fritters eeeever are at The Conch Shake in Provos, Turks. Amazing!


Look! It’s ClumpsTV. Or Clumpsivision. LOL! Yes, I spent $14 to check good ole’ Clumps and to tweet. It was hard being Blackberry-less for almost a week.


More random shots!

What to wear on Paradise Island? A color liner, mascara and a glittery Dazzleglass. That’s all! LOL @ what I was listening to.

Sister shots….


opps, forgot to “smile with my eyes”. Next time, next time.

These chicks are clearly loving their desserts. LOL!


Of course the nails STILL got polished everyday. I’m rockin‘ Diamond Cosmetics’ Hot Summer Pink!

….and then back to Miami. We stayed at the beautiful Eden Roc Hotel in Miami Beach. A terrible storm hit and what happens? Lights go off in the hotel. And they don’t come back on. For hours. And hours. We ended up being forced to leave.

The horror.


The commotion….

But what’s any family vacay without some random “something” happening?

Oh! I also swam with dolphins which was an amazing experience that everyone must do once in their life.

Another great trip!

Next?

Back to NYC and definitely Vegas.

Doing any summer traveling? Take me with you!

Have a wonderful weekend!

A Mother’s Day gift by Carol’s Daughter

Mother’s Day is right around the corner…..and while I know most of us don’t want to get all caught up in another commercialized holiday, if anyone deserves a special day, it is Mom!

Well, at least my Mom. She is greatest. Even when I pulled some crazy stunts.

-Like when I came home with tattoos and piercings after my first year of college.
-And when I changed my major….three times.
-Oh…and when I moved to the other side of the country.

Mom is my biggest fan and supports so many of my ventures. She deserves only the best. But what do you get a woman who seems to have everything? And what she doesn’t have….she makes?

Introducing…..

Carol’s Daughter’s Pearls Gift Set


What Sephora.com says this gift set:

Carol’s Daughter Pearls Gift Set allows you to experience Pearls in two forms—a fragrance and a crème. When layered together, the bergamot, lemon, and verbena tinged fragrance lasts longer and has a more vibrant scent. What it is formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Synthetic Dyes - Phthalates - GMOs - Triclosan

This is right up my Mom, the herbalist’s, alley. She loves fragrances sans the bad chemicals. And this is probably one of the BEST scents for Spring. And come on girl….you just HAVE to love the packaging.


For $49.50 you get the Pearls fragrance with body creme. My Mom will absolutely LOVE this. And since she is an active reader of Clumps…I know she is somewhere shrieking over ONE of her Mother’s Day gifts.

Love you, Mommy!!

Anyone own this or plan on getting this for that special Mom, Grandma, Aunt, Mother-in-law, friend or sister? You can find out more about this darling little gift set here.

Because Moms deserve it!
