Eat. Pray. Love.
With just a few days before heading back to NYC, I took a day trip to Portland, Jamaica. This to me is one of the most beautiful, lush and scenic parts of the island. If you haven't visited Jamaica, and specifically here, I suggest you add it to your bucket list - I promise you won't be disappointed.
In San-San, Portland, you'll find Frenchmen's Cove - a very unique beach often referred to as "paradise" and rated one of the best in the world. What makes this beach so magical is the amazing way the river meets the ocean in the cove.
The day was a bit overcast but I wouldn't make that spoil the adventure and the elated feeling of actually fitting in a visit. I had planned to take a dip, but instead decided to just enjoyed the scenery, read some magazines and have some "dry" fun. I wore one of my favorite dresses, a crochet, midi, pencil fit dress from Joe Fresh. It's one of those pieces I've dressed up and worn to dinner resulting in heads turning and lots of compliments; and dressed and worn casually with flats, like today. It is super comfortable and very chic. I like to belt it, like I did here with a Delia's belt, to give more definition to the waist. Usually, I wear little to no accessories with it. Today, I paired it with my Bulova watch, a delicate pearl ring and my American Eagle aviators.
My visit was too short but oh so sweet. I can't wait to go back to Portland for an extended stay. I've yet to try the renovated and transformed luxury hotel, Trident Castle. I've heard nothing but rave reviews so it's definitely on my list. I had an amazing vacation in Jamaica - there is just no place like home!
Let me know if you guys have visited as well and how your experience was. Also, if you need any recommended spots as a first-timer or return visitor, I'm happy to share my "must-do" and "must-see" lists.
