Beachcomber Cocktail

Our bags are packed and we are jet setting out to the docks in Charleston to meet up with the Carnival Sunshine. It will be a week of fun in the sun aboard this action-packed ship. Our week-long cruise will take us to three private Carnival destinations in Eastern Caribbean including Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic, Grand Turk and Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas. I’ve packed all kinds of cruise fashions that I can’t wait to share with you!


We will spend a few days at sea enjoying everything the ship has to offer. We will also enjoy the islands off shore site-seeing excursions along the way.

I will make sure there’s plenty of time gazing at the crystal blue water with a cocktail in hand. I created this Beachcomber Cocktail to celebrate everything sand & sea! It’s been a favorite drink of mine for sometime now. Not too sweet and just the the right amount of fruity.


I’m proud to be a #CarnivalPartner for the third year in a row. I have my routine down & it will include plenty of lounging by the pool time! With all the busyness of back to school this mom needs a little R&R.


Stay tuned for all of our sunny cruising adventures ahead. Be sure to follow along on my Instagram, Facebook & Snapchat for daily Caribbean musings.
