Great Huts, Port Antonio

April 10th, 2017 No comments

If you come to Port Antonio and you do not stay at The Great Huts, you are missing out!!! The hotel is located on top of a cliff, where the ocean and the jungle meet. The hotel is very exotic, rustic and lush. The grounds are green with beautiful animals roaming around and the hotel is eco friendly!

The hotel is wonderful for kids. Sage loved meeting Issac, the guard dog and Scarlett, the beautiful parrot. She especially enjoyed feeding the turtles every morning. We stayed in a room called Sea Grape and it was perfect for us! Sage enjoyed her small swimming pool and we loved the view from top of the cliff. We felt so safe at this hotel and the staff are extremely kind.

The hotel was founded by Dr. Paul. He also founded the PRM Homeless Shelter in Portland. We visited the homeless shelter and it was heartbreaking for me. A trip to the homeless shelter will change your life. I highly recommend that everyone visit the homeless shelters when you guys travel to Jamaica. Help in any way that you can because we are all one. Gently used clothing, under garments and shoes are much needed here!! You can make a donation and anything counts! xo Nini

Frenchman’s Cove

April 4th, 2017 1 comment

Frenchman’s Cove is one of the prettiest beaches in the world. It is a special place for many reasons but what I like the most about it is that Frenchman’s Cove is where fresh water and sea water meet.

It feels like a secret place surrounded by lush, green ivy hanging down on every side of you and even swings so you can dangle your feet in the water!

There are two life guards on the beach so it’s super safe. It doesn’t feel like a tourist attraction and no one is there trying to sell you anything! We spent a whole day here just eating and drinking coconut juice. The entrance fee to get in is $10 per person and it is free for kids.

My tips for enjoying Frenchman’s Cove: bring your own beach towels and beach mat. Also bring your own water and some snacks. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

Wearing: Desert Vintage poppy duster, H&M swimsuits, Hermes scarf as headband and vintage Dior sunnies

FENTYxPUMA IN PARIS

October 18th, 2016 No comments

It was such an honor to be in attendance as our friend Rihanna launched her second collection for Puma in Paris at hotel Salomon de Rothschild, where Valentino had shown their Spring 2017 collection just a few days later.

Every single piece from the collection was a dream and it perfectly reflected Rihanna’s style. The fabric quality was high, the cuts were sexy and the pieces were wearable. It was a mix of  the mid-century touch and the modern girl. Brocade lace up corsets and jumpsuits stand out as my absolute favorite pieces with pearls and oversized earrings draped over the models. Rihanna has the Midas touch; everything she touches turns to gold. This collection has her touch and I want it all!! PHOTOS BY LOC

PARIS WITH LOVE

October 7th, 2016 No comments

Paris has always held a special place in my heart. Paris is electric in too many ways to count. The architecture, the wonderful restaurants and bakeries, the innate fashion sense of the locals-everything here-is so lively and different from our life in the US. This is where Loc and I went for our honeymoon 6 years ago and I’m so happy to be back in Paris with our baby, Sage and Loc’s Mom, Nội.

We attended some shows but mostly spent our time sight seeing, wandering through the city, exploring, eating and drinking. We wanted to bring Sage to all of the places that we love here and she seemed to love them just as much. I’m so grateful to have this experience and share it with our growing family.

This is what I wore to the Esteban Cortazar show: a long maxi pencil skirt, a cropped crisp white blouse and netting on my hair. I feel like this is the city where you can push your boundaries, get out of your comfort zone and try something different with your make-up, hair, and clothes.

Wearing: Haider Ackermann skirt, Alaia top, Fendi booties, and Chanel vintage belt
