Self-Indulgence? Check!


I know it’s been a while since my last post but don’t be mad. Once you find out what I’ve been up to you’ll wish you were there with me. Before I get to the business of making you green with envy, let me start by asking how have you been? I like hearing from you so definitely let a sista know what’s good with you. Ready to go green?

Ok, I did something I never thought I’d do. Actually, that’s not entirely true; I’ve always wanted to do it but conditions just never seemed right. I’ve traveled and lived alone but never done this. I took my first solo vacation ever and it was a blast! Yay!!!!!

Picture it: South Coast Mombasa, gorgeous beaches, lovely views, great food and lots of it, freedom to do what I wanted when I wanted, approved laziness, 4am movie nights with coconut for snacks, eating alone, skimpy little outfits, the ocean for a lullaby, reading trashy magazines by the beach wearing BIG vacation sunglasses, drinking the milk of fresh young coconut with flowers in it, spoiled rotten, head-to-toe spa treatment (by a guy 😉 ), interesting people and peace of mind that was out of this world and that’s not even all of it. Leopard Beach Resort & Spa has perfected the art of hospitality (and I swear they’re not even paying me to say that).

If you’ve never taken a solo vacation, please do. This was honestly one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. Ever! The memory of it is enough to bring a smile to my face.

I’m looking to travel again so most definitely gimme your suggestions. Now you know what I’ve been up to. What have you been up to? Lemme know. Smooches!
