St. Lucia, here we come!!!

After doing tons and tons of research (if you know me, you know I literally mean I did an insane amount) Logan and I have decided to go to Calabash Cove in St. Lucia for our honeymoon! This place is perfect and is exactly what we were looking for - somewhere with a gorgeous view, a great beach, and secluded enough that we can just relax in the peace and quiet. Calabash Cove just opened in February of this year, and isn't your typical mega-resort. There are only 22 rooms, so it's pretty private. If any of you are looking to take a vacation in the near future, you should seriously look into this place. Since they're still so new, they are offering amazing deals right now, and they've gotten nothing but glowing reviews on websites like TripAdvisor.com.

Anyway, we have a great honeymoon package that will include champagne upon arrival, all of our food and drinks, a couple's massage, private transportation in a limo to and from the airport (which is an hour and a half drive!), and private dinner for two either on our patio deck or on the dock over the water. I am so excited - I can't wait. Now for the pictures!
This is the main pool, Sweetwaters. It has a 40 foot infiniti edge that looks out over the Caribbean, and a swim up bar!Here's the dock where we'll have our private dinner. The first night, we'll be staying in one of the swim up suites. (The Waters Edge Cottages are booked until the following night.) We don't mind at all. It will be cool to get to try out two different types of rooms. These rooms are literally right in front of the pool. What a great view!We'll spend the remaining 6 nights in one of the Waters Edge Cottages - and they are amazing. Do you see the ripe bananas hanging from the tree right off the patio? Each one is 1000 square feet with a wrap around porch, private plunge pool, and outdoor shower. Oh, and a hammock!

I did it!!


I'm sooo excited! I finally bought... a Jewel Jet!! I've been wanting one since I got this fantastic bling on my left hand, but I thought I'd first try to keep the ring clean with regular jewelry cleaner. Don't get me wrong - the jewelry cleaner makes these diamonds sparkle like crazy. I just can't get in between the side stones and the setting in a couple of places, and while no one else probably notices, I want every angle sparkling like the very first day I got it! Enter: The Jewel Jet! It's an at home jewelry steamer, and it supposedly works so well that even jewelry stores have started using them instead of the big bulky steamers. It should get here next Tuesday, and I can't wait!!
