Top: Bugis market in Singapore
Shorts: River Island
Bag: Forever 21
Mask: Kyrece’s mum
Inspiration: I chose the top because it had so much colour and tassels that gave it a jamboree look.
My friends thought I was crazy and that my stuff would get stolen while rocking a transparent bag during carnival so I wanted to prove them wrong.
Pretty much stayed at home after mass today. Lent begins. #AshWednesday.
Skirt: Forever 21
Inspiration: The top because of its ‘seriousness’. This skirt was the longest I came along with so had to wear it to church.
Maracas beach day. This should be the most beautiful beach in Trinidad.
Rucksack: Forever 21
Inspiration – White.. Love to wear white to the beach for some funny reason. I also love the colour white because I think it suits my skin tone.
Went off to spend a day with our friend Nicole and her husband south of Trinidad.
Shorts: Miss Selfridges
Rucksack: Forever 21
Neck thing: Aldo
Inspiration: The park. I wanted to look a tad serious today at the same chilled enough for the park and its animals. Lol
There was a small zoo there..
I had to change as were were going on water rides but I couldn’t wear my bikini out here.
Inspiration: My friends. Their outfits.
Went on the Bird Sanctuary boat ride. A remarkable experience too.
Various rare specie of animals protected by the Trinidadian government.
Tobago day. 🙂
We couldn’t get flight tickets to Tobago as at the time we checked the previous day because they were all fully booked. Luckily we got tickets for the ferry. It was a 2 hour 30 min ride.
The worst 2 hours 30 minutes ever. 1 hour into the journey I felt so dizzy and horribly SICK! No need to go into details but damn..
The ferry was this big with that much cars but its vibration still affected me so adversely. 🙁
Got into Tobago in one piece and my head slowly got back normal. Had to get medication in order to survive the return trip.
Tobago was gorgeous and even more relaxed than Trinidad.
Since I couldn’t take pictures on the vessel I plunged right into the act as we arrived Pigeon Point.
Rucksack: (same as above)
Inspiration – I felt like a school girl going on an excursion to the neighbouring city…so that inspired this look.
Got to the beach proper and changed into this..
Beach wear: George
Coconut shaped bikini top: Random store in London
After chilling for a while here, had lunch then had to get to Nylon Pool.
Nylon Pool is a pool in the middle on the ocean. Its a shallow and clear mass of water.
Had to get there with a boat. the ride was bliss this time.
Unfortunately there are no pictures of me in the pool for obvious reasons.
The sand in the pool was so good if applied on your skin, it gives this really soft feel.
Instant exfoliation. I took some home with me. Lol, #deep.
It was almost time for the ferry ride back to Trinidad so I had to get changed and out.
Flipflops: Marks and Spencer
Rucksack: Forever 21
Inspiration – I wanted to rock denim on demin on denim just incase my ferry ride bag was a hassle I’d be comfy and in one piece.
Got to the Ferry station just in time. Had to practically run into the vessel becuase everyone had already boarded.
Took my medication, sat down in preparation for the worst.
The fans be bugging me…*sigh*
Haha, so I arrived Trinidad in a good state, the ride wasn’t as bad but wasn’t smooth either.
Tobago was totally totally totally worth the stress.
The highlight of my whole trip was right in Tobago as well. (would share below).
All in all my trip was fabulous.
Thanks to the beautiful country that is Trinidad and Tobago..
Thanks to the beautiful hosts I had and the beautiful people I met..
Got to the airport in good time to purchase the rest of them goodies for my colleagues and friends..
About 3 people asked me to get them rum, but I was advised not to go through with this because its alcohol content was 75% thereby considered highly inflammable.
Bought the right items and landed in Barbados safely..
Flight was delayed from Trinidad so I did not have as much time to play in BArbados, in fact I had to quickly change to denim pants and a shirt with no time for snaps.
Landed in the very chilly London at 5:50am and had to report to work.. Who does that? *sigh*
Got home, quickly updated my blog (I had written the post on my iphone in bits and bobs earlier).
Rested for about 30 minutes then dressed up and found myself at the office.
Shirt: Beloved shirt.. lol (same as above)
Inspiration: My pure love for this shirt. Plus I really couldn’t be bothered to find something from my wardrobe. Dressed up from my box. Yeah also I had 4 outfits I didn’t get to wear over there (i always over-pack), thought I would choose one of those but I still settled for this shirt.
Don’t I look so fagged out? 🙁
Here’s thanking my buddy and very close friend, Olga, for just being you..
My favourite items on this trip..
Couldn’t get enough of my rucksack, this top and – although I wore them shoes just once –
I loved loved them.
YES!!!!! MEETING DWIGHT YORKE.
He’s such a legend. He was so humble.. It was just a picture yet it totally made my trip.
There it goes from Miss Gypsie. Thanks babe for letting us have you here. 🙂
