This past weekend, I hopped a long jump, skip and a hop from Las Vegas where I was at buying at Magic tradeshow, over to the Caribbean for International Swim Week Curacao, hosted by Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort and presented by Fashion Show VIP. It was absolutely incredible!! I arrived minutes before the first night of shows, was warmly welcomed by a Blue Curacao cocktail, pulled my hair up in a pony, and rushed over to the beach to see the first night of the fashion shows. The designers came from all over the world to showcase their Spring 2015 collections, which were nothing short of amazing and left me wanting some new swim wear!
The first night, after the shows we headed to the after party and had a couple more island cocktails before heading to bed. I couldn't wait until morning to check out the resort. Next morning I woke up early, went to the gym (didn't mind at all with these beach views from a treadmill!) and enjoyed a delicious breakfast, again, with these views. During the day activities, we paddle boarded, lounged by the beach, took a tour of beautiful Curacao, visited local spots, namely Sea Side Terrace, where I had the best fried snapper ever and highly recommend if you're headed to Curacao!
The trip was four days long, and three nights of fashion shows where we saw multiple designer's resort collections. My favorite part of the whole trip (aside from everything ;)) was feeling like the luckiest girl getting to stay in this beautiful resort that was everything you'd want on vacation. Service was excellent, drinks (recommend passionfruit daiquiris) were on point, the rooms and views were beyond stunning, and it was relaxation galore. I would love to go back to Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in the near future, and recommend it while planning your next island getaway! It's only a 2.5 hour flight from Miami, so a weekend getaway is just what the doctor ordered...if you're currently snowed in, just take a look at these pics ;)
