“The higher the mountain, the closer to God…” This pretty much sums up my experience at Brimstone Hill National Park and Timothy Hill in St Kitts.. After spending an amazing day at St. Kitts Marriott Resort and The Royal Beach Casino and in St Kitts’ sister island, Nevis, I could not leave without visiting this UNESCO World Heritage Site. I knew it had to be impressive, but I did not know it would be so impactful.

To be at the top of the fortress in Brimstone, surrounded by the history of the British and French colonization and the immensity of the ocean, is a once in a lifetime wanderlust experience. It can only be topped by seeing the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean at the same time on top of Timothy Hill.

Traveling is one of the things that really fuels my soul. It gives me the opportunity to learn about the history of the place, indulge in yummy local food, admire a different landscape and become acquainted with the culture. My journey to St. Kitts was that and more. This beautiful, and hidden spot, has got to be one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. Kissed by the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, and surrounded by the rainforest, St Kitts is a dream come true for any wander luster.

I stayed at the beautiful St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino in Basseterre. My 1st stop was to hike on the Rainforest. Yeah, you read that right! Me and nothing but nature. Kinda weird but totally uplifting. It was truly an amazing experience and it changed the way I see myself. I tuned my soul into a more adventurous one and for that I’ll be forever grateful. I know that it opened my heart and soul to an infinite amount of opportunities that I will treasure and share for years to come. Continue reading

I have to admit: I’m a step away from becoming a vampire! I do not like the sun, I keep the shades down inside my house, and I always use sunscreen. I refuse to get wrinkles, spots, and most of all, skin cancer! I mean, my kids need their mom around to take care of them!

However, I gotta say there are a few advantages to looking tanned. Starting with the fact that it gives your skin a beautiful glow, and ending with the even more important fact, that it makes the body look toned!

Everyone knows I’m a mom, and a very proud one! I love my kids. They are my everything. The ymake me laugh, they’ve made me grow, and they teach me something new every day; but, overall, they just fill my life with pure and inexplicable joy. Even when I’m upset or tired, I still feel that happiness inside. However, kids can take a toll on a mom’s life, specially on their body. So, after seeing the growing #Mombod trend, I got inspired to come out of my shell and finally wear a bikini after 3yrs in hiding. I mean, how could I say no to swimming with fishes and turtles during my trip to St Kitts Marriott Resort and Royal Beach Casino and Nevis Island?

I gotta say: It was life changing! Read the full story on Mom.Me. I have written beauty, parenting and mom life articles for the site, and I have to say that they have given me an outlet where to express myself in a different way. Continue reading
