Fresh off the streets of Rio, the Nissan Kicks makes its debut in the US and lives up to the hype!

How to conquer Q2 and the rest of 2018 like a boss!

Can someone tell me how the first quarter of 2018 is already done? (Cue the slow eye roll emoji).

Trinidad Carnival truly is sweet for days!

As far back as I can remember, my family has celebrated carnival. Regardless of where we’ve lived, Trinidad & Tobago, our homeland, has always been apart of our lives and carnival culture is at the essence of that existence.

JetBlue just made sun, fun and rum in Barbados easier to enjoy!

I’ve heard a lot of people say that when you visit one Caribbean island you’ve seen them all. Well I’ll be the first to tell you that that theory is way off and couldn’t be further from the truth! After exploring the Caribbean for years, I still find each location to be fascinating, unspoiled and largely undiscovered (Like my recent visit to Kingston, Jamaica). As a girl...

Cuba is calling- you should answer! Here’s everything you need to know before you visit Havana

The last time I visited Cuba it was in 2014 and although that doesn’t seem like that long ago, so much has changed on the island since then. From President Obama’s visit, the opening of new luxury hotels in downtown Havana (The Ritz Carlton and the St. Regis in 2019) to the the renovation of Cuba’s capitol building, progress is happening in many places on...
