Cruise Shopping Needs:

Hello Darlings,

With a month and a half left until my exotic vacation, I have written down (in no particular order) a list of my must haves for a Caribbean cruise:
  • A floppy beach hat
  • A beach bag
  • Beach towels
  • Soft pink nail polish
  • Colorful necklaces, bracelets, rings
  • Toe rings
  • A monokini
  • Bold and colorful bikini tops
  • White board shorts (to go with any bikini top)
  • 2 Bathing suit cover ups
  • Metallic gladiator sandals
  • Basic black flip flops for pool
  • Wedges (Black or Brown)
  • White Jean Capris
  • Comfy basic t-shirts
  • Colorful sunglasses
  • Sundresses
  • Flower clips (for hair)

With all of this shopping and trying on different clothes, I have started to get serious about exercising and watching what I eat. I must admit that I look forward to the exercise part; I'm a very active and athletic person throughout the entire year but being home on summer break is not only a break from academics but from activities as well. To make up for my lack of running around on campus, I walk around my neighborhood (for approximately three miles) with Nicole and my cousins in order to get in an hour of cardio. The next step is trying to get leaner and more toned and watching what I eat. Boredom eating is such a curse! I'm just trying to keep the image of looking sleek in a bathing suit in the fore front of my mind :p

If you have any suggestions on what else might be needed for a Caribbean cruise as well as exercise and dieting tips, please let me know!

You've got it all covered. And you listed the most important item in caps... SUNSCREEN. Enjoy your Caribbean cruise. xoxo


Such great tings on your list! :) I know the feeling about food and eating. I just love food too much. :) I seriously have to work out that much harder just to be able to eat what I want. I must get better on that too. good luck, It will all work out for you. :)

happy holidays!

A cruise sounds exciting!! How about this...bring your camera!! You're going to want pictures to look back on when experience another snow storm this winter ;o) As for eating out of boredom, I'm guilty of the same thing to. But if I have healthy fresh fruit, washed, diced up and ready to go, when I open the fridge I go for the inviting fruit instead of the bad stuff :) Works like a charm!

Sounds like you've got everything covered; just don't forget a bit of chick lit for when you're lounging on the deck of the ship in your bikini!! :P

Does your cruise have formal nights? You may need some fancier dresses!

So jealous you get to go on a cruise! I think you've got everything covered.
Ah! And I know what you mean. I'm trying to get healthier. My exercise is perfectly fine; it's my eating habits that are disgusting (even if they're considerably better than others)!

How exciting! You'going to have a blast!

For diets, I just started eating only fresh food and on white carbs. Lost 3.8 lbs last week!
