SFB: Faith+ Positivity+ The Little Things in Life

Posted on: September 10, 2018

 

 

Life can throw us a lot of curve balls and we all continue to fight battles each and every single day. For some of us, this can deter us from moving forward, where we feel less  motivated in doing just about everything. My advice to you all and I’ve always continued to say this—–NEVER GIVE UP. Trust me I know it is easier said than done, trust me I know this all too well and I get it. Sometimes we think simple fixes can make things better, but we mustn’t look for material things or other things to make things better. It’s the little things in life that should help us keep moving forward. It’s starts with this and for some of us we underestimate how powerful this can help us. We all experience various life challenges and through these battles and difficulties we must keep our faith, and believe in the power of prayer.  I know all too well, that with all of life challenges that we go through, it’s so easy to lose our faith and hope. Sometimes our faith comes in waves because we go through all these ups and downs in life which makes us wonder and question our faith and even God. We all want the answers, we all want immediate results. But unfortunately, life doesn’t work out that way. But that doesn’t mean that things can’t happen, but not as immediate as we would like or hope.

 

What we must always remember, it’s all about timing and in God’s time. God hasn’t forgotten us, he is with us and he hears our prayers and thoughts, we must never forget that.  I also hold God and my faith as the number one driving force in my life that has kept me going in all aspects of my life.  In addition to the support of my love, family and friends. They have been the people in my life, the reason why I’m motivated to keep going. Like all of us, I am human, and I can be the first to admit that I have lost my faith at times. But without fail God has shown me in more ways than one that he is with me. I have lived by this scripture from 2 Corinthians 5:7 —-  I will walk by faith even when I cannot see…. I truly believe there are signs everywhere and he is with us, guiding us and showing us even when we can’t see it he is. We must remember that. What I will leave you with is,  remain strong even when it’s tough. Stay positive, even when there are things leading you to think or act otherwise. Pray for peace, pray for hope, protection to keep that positivity and good energy and vibes flowing in your life. Be kind always. Spread love in everything you do. Lastly, keep pushing, keep going. Never lose hope, never give up and never stop believing.

 

Here are some of my words, psalms and bible scriptures that have continued to stay with me and help me throughout my life:

I will walk by faith, even when I cannot see… 2 Corinthians 5:7

Psalms 23

Psalms 91 for Protection

Psalms 37:4

Corinthians 13-4

Psalms 46:5

Proverbs 3:1-12

Luke 11:1-54

Whatever you believe in, keep that and hold onto to that. It will help you during all of life challenges. Stay inspired, empowered, motivated and always keep the faith. Stay positive!

 

 

 

 

Outfit Details 

Shirt Dress: Zara (So versatile, can be worn as a dress or even a top).  |

Booties: Dolce Vita | Lipstick: Nars| Earrings: Aurate NYC |

Remember to always have faith, stay strong, keep the positive vibes flowing, never give, never lose hope and never ever stop believing.

As always, thanks for reading, following along and supporting my journey!

It’s more Fun in the Bahamas

Posted on: June 9, 2016

It’s definitely more fun in the Bahamas, with great weather and fun in the sun, how could you go wrong! I mean, am I right?!

Last May, the hubby and I enjoyed took a little getaway to the Bahamas.  A little fun in the some and some good ol’ R&R. I’ve enjoyed visiting the Bahamas ever since my first visit back in High School. And now its even more enjoyable because I can appreciate it all with my travel buddy and life partner. It was a nice way to free our mind and getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city . Whenever you get a chance it’s always nice to get away now and then, and I feel it’s important too. Great way to get refreshed, relaxed and feel restored and ready to get back to reality.

When we visited the Bahamas we stayed at none other than the Atlantis Resort & Casino on Paradise Island. We stayed at the newest, most modern and fashionably chic part of the resort: The Cove Atlantis.

Atlantis Paradise Island Resorts & Casino: Located at: One Casino Drive Paradise Island, Bahamas. It’s the Caribbean’s top vacation resort to visit. Discover all the fun and all it has to offer. The Resort has water parks the whole family can enjoy, fine dining, casino gaming and so much more. The resort has so much to offer you almost don’t need to go anywhere else. The Atlantis is such a gorgeous hotel and resort with so much to do for the whole family. I would highly recommend staying here when you visit the Bahamas. There are also many other hotels on Paradise Island and in downtown Nassau that are also notable. But this is one hotel that offers so much and has just about everything you’re looking for when your looking for relaxation, fun in the sun, and much more. Plus, it’s one of our favorites.

  • Royal Tower: is the most iconic tower and the heartbeat of the resort and the central location for the hotels premiere attractions.
  • Beach Tower: relaxed and care-free atmosphere, your room is steps away from all the fun, the beach and pools. The most affordable accommodations.
  • Coral Tower: contemporary and relaxed Bahamian ambiance, moderately priced accommodations.
  • The Reef Atlantis:Your home away from home, Luxury beachfront suites and residential apartments
  • The Cove Atlantis: Most stylish and fashionably chic escape, upscale guest experience. Exclusive access to the Adult only pool and beach club Cain at the Cove as well as Cascades Family pools. (This is where were stayed)
  • Harbourside Atlantis: Enjoy both simple and spacious charm of comfortable villas here at the Harbourside resorts. Ideally suited for families or groups of 9 or more.

What Atlantis has to offer–What To See + What To Do: 

  • Enjoy the Dolphin Experience at Dolphin Cay extraordinary environment and intimate interaction programs at this 14-acre marine habitat
  • Go and experience Atlantis’s Water Park 141-acre water park includes a mile-long river tubing adventure, nine water slides, and 11 pools

  • Aura Nightclub
  • Atlantis LIVE
  • Atlantis Theatre

Guest don’t just have to go to Rodeo drive or 5th Avenue for luxury shopping. Atlantis Resorts offers world-class shopping thats just steps away from your room. Visit the Crystal shops located in the The Royal Tower, more boutique shops in their Cove Tower, Marina Village and the Pro shop. Whatever you fancy Atlantis offers that and much more. If you want to venture off Paradise Island, head down to Bay Street located in downtown Nassau. There you’ll find many shops, outlets, boutiques and the local straw market. The Straw Market is one of my favorite place to visit. The straw market is a traditional open-air market, where local vendors sell handwoven straw crafts, Bahamian souvenirs & tourist trinkets. Definitely a great place to buy gifts for family and friends. Great for bargains as well.

Where To Eat: 

The Atlantis has a variety of foods to offer, so you won’t go hungry thats for sure. If your looking for fine dining, dining al fresco or some quick eats Atlantis has it. Island life is the best life and its great for any setting for eating. enjoy eating at one of my favorite restaurants Nobu (Celebrity Chef Restaurant), if your looking for something more Island cuisine then you’ll enjoy 77 West. Here are some other restaurants at Atlantis that may tickle your fancy.

Fine Dining Options (Our Faves):                                                          

Casual Dining Al Fresco (Our Favorites): 

Quick Eats: 

And if your super hungry and looking for something with more variety check out Poseidon’s Table. This is Atlantis’s newest buffet dining restaurant that has so much to offer. With an eclectic cuisines for dinner and an array of your breakfast favorites.

There is so much to see and do at The Atlantis but the same goes for the entire island of the Bahamas. If you want to experience the island, here are some suggestion on what to see in the Bahamas.

Bahamas Facts

  • Officially known as the Commonwealth of The Bahamas
  • It lies just northwest of Turks and Caicos and Southeast of Florida and East of the Florida Keys
  • Nassau is the Capital located in New Providence
  • New Providence is the most populated Island in the Bahamas containing more than 70% of the total population
  • The Bahamas was the first site where Christopher Columbus set foot on in the New World in 1492
  • The Bahamas become a British Colony in 1718, but became independent realm in 1973 retaining Queen Elizabeth II as its monarch.
  • Bahamas in one of the richest countries in the Americas following the USA and Canadas
  • The economy is based on tourism and finance
  • The colours embodied in the design of the Bahamian flag symbolize the image and aspirations of the people of the Bahamas; the design reflects aspects of the natural environment (sun, sand and sea) and the economic and social development. The flag is a black equilateral triangle against the mast, superimposed on a horizontal background made up of two colours on three equal stripes of aquamarine, gold and aquamarine. (Wikipedia)
  • The symbolism of the flag is as follows: Black, a strong colour, represents the vigour and force of a united people, the triangle pointing towards the body of the flag represents the enterprise and determination of the Bahamian people to develop and possess the rich resources of sun and sea symbolised by gold and aquamarine respectively. In reference to the representation of the people with the colour black, some white Bahamians have joked that they are represented in the thread which “holds it all together.”(Wikipedia)
  • The Yellow Elder is the national flower, it blooms throughout the years

What To See

  • Blue Lagoon: Blue Lagoon Island is a private island located 5 km from Nassau, Bahamas and serves as a local tourist attraction
  • Ardastra Gardens: Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre in Nassau, The Bahamas opened in 1937 though the work of the Jamaican horticulturist, Hedley Vivian Edwards. From the Latin Ardua astrum, Ardastra means “Striving for the stars”
  • Junkanoo: Junkanoo is a street parade with music, dance, and costumes of Igbo origin in many towns across the Bahamas every Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. The largest Junkanoo parade happens in the capital New Providence.
  • Fort Fincastle: Fort Fincastle is a fort located in the city of Nassau on the island of New Providence in The Bahamas
  • Fort Charlotte: Fort Charlotte is a British-colonial era fort built on a hill over-looking the harbor of Nassau, The Bahamas. The fort sits a short walk west of downtown Nassau and the cruise ship terminal
  • Take a tour of Nassau, Paradise Island and more. For more information click here

If you’re anything like us, wherever we travel we like to check out where the locals hangout and eat. We love seeing and exploring the hot spots for the locals, especially for eating. So if your looking for something more local and authentic, take a little drive or walk down downtown Nassau to the Fish Fry. The Fish Fry, is where you’ll find real, authentic Bahamian dishes that will satisfy your tastebuds. The Fish Fry is a place I would highly recommend if your looking for local and real Bahamian cuisine.

During our trip, we enjoyed each day by the pool or beach, basically relaxed in paradise. Some days were spent, curled up reading a book or work in the Library lounge located in the Royal Tower. And of course we love taking photos. Honestly, every inch of this hotel and island was so Instagram friendly. It’s impossible to not find a more perfect place to take photos. If your favorite photo spot is occupied? Don’t fret, walk in any direction of the resort or even away from the hotel and you’ll find another perfect spot. This may seem like #bloggerproblems, but no fear the island is so beautiful, every inch is photo worthy. You’re in island paradise, so don’t worry you’ll be able to capture that perfect island photo shot, GUARANTEED! We enjoyed cocktails by the pool even tried our luck at the casino. Danced the night away at the Aura Nightclub and returned to the lobby bar for a nightcap.

The Island of the Bahamas and the Atlantis is so absolutely gorgeous with fun, relaxing and positive vibes. During you’re stay you’ll feel at ease and with so much to do you won’t ever have to worry about being bored. When you visit the Bahamas and stay at the Atlantis, you will surely have an amazing time as we did. Although the majority of our visit was spent at the resort, we also took time to explore the rest of the island. All in all, we enjoyed our stay in the Bahamas and at the Atlantis Resorts and Casino Paradise Island. We want to thank the entire staff at the Atlantis for making our stay such a fantastic experience. We also want to thank the Bahamas tourism board for the incredible tour of the beautiful island.
