Companies like American Apparel & Urban Outfitters are reviving the fashion of the 1990′s. Is this the greatest thing to happen to fashion or should we put down our scrunchies? I personally love the 90′s because, along with the 80′s, this is when I really grew into my own. The music was fresh, the fashion was anywhere from grunge plaid to metallic platforms. It was organic and dirty and futuristic at the same time. The movie Clueless can sum all of these up into a 90 minute documentary of the era. Although I am nostalgic for this time period, I fear the unflattering fashions that come with it. I have to say I prefer my low rise bikini bottoms over the 90′s high waisted one pieces. Here we take a look at the high’s and low’s of the fashion revival. If you’re thinking about digging through your closet, please go ahead, we’ll wait… Read More »
Let’s face it, sometimes life gets the best of us. It happens to us all. We feel we have too much on our plate and feel like things simply aren’t going our way.

Even saying the words, “Tropical Getaway,” seem too expensive for my taste (and my wallet). The crystal clear waters, pure white sand and cabana boys fanning you with palm leaves…well, that doesn’t come cheap. There’s certainly no fun in taking a vacation where once you’ve arranged the hotel you can’t afford to ever leave it, which is why you should start packing the sunscreen today, because we’re here to help! We’re here to put the fear of dollar signs out of your mind (and ours) and share some great suggestions on making your tropical daydreams a reality!
Tropical Getaway Ideas: Aruba
Including a pretty lateral currency exchange rate (huge perks to that to keep in mind) and cool trade winds, this destination is one that we feel sometimes gets overlooked initially when thinking about where to head this summer. Aruba offers amazing rates, things to do for those who like to stay active and amazing amenities to those who would rather take the time to catch up on some rest. Boasting perfect 83 degree weather year-round, low humidity and a location below the hurricane belt, I’d say they have it made! They even have one of the Top Ten Beaches in the world… Eagle Beach!
Tropical Getaways: Cancun
Sure, you first think “Spring Break, Baby!”, but in all seriousness Cancun has really matured over the years! They still accommodate college students celebrating the end of a semester, but also welcome families and honeymooners! Again, the weather can’t be beat, but it is a bit humid which can sometimes make the temperatures feel much warmer. They do have very inexpensive transportation around the area and the US Dollar currency exchange is pretty good (Please check current listings before planning your trip as this can fluctuate and should not be taken as a standard from this blog!)
Tropical Getaways: Dominican Republic
Tropical Getaways: Puerto Rico
Tropical Getaways: Jamaica
