Nassau Bahamas Vacation Getaway

So everyone is going on their summer vacations and I’m over here like, 3 more days of work until the weekend comes.  I love vacationing during non-peak seasons/months, it’s not as busy and I don’t have to deal with huge crowds, long wait times, or high hotel rates…what’s there not to love?  Oh yeah, the vacation FOMO you get when everyone is traveling and having fun on their summer vacations and you’re stuck at work.  If I can’t be on vacation, I can at least reminisce!  I have a bunch of vacation pictures that I haven’t posted from a few vacations so I’ve decided that I’m going to do a couple of posts on them 🙂

Here are some shots from my short trip to Nassau during my Bahamas birthday cruise several months ago.Nassau Bahamas

The blue waters and cute lighthouse reminds me of a postcard you’d get from your vacationing friend.  When I think of Nassau, this image always comes to mind.  If you’re ever in Nassau, you can find this spot by walking past Senior Frog’s towards the beach just beyond all the restaurants and buildings and before the brightly colored stands on the beach.

Black Romper in NassauI love wearing rompers as opposed to swim cover-ups when I’m out at the beach.  Swim cover-ups often have a undergarment-y feel to them; most of the time they aren’t a stand alone piece and are sheer!  Rompers are extremely versatile, you can slip it off and hit the beach, then slip it back on and grab lunch or hit up some stores without looking like a tourist in your wet sheer swim cover-up at the souvenir shop.Clubmaster Sunnies in Nassau1_0728a1_0930

 

If you’re feeling stressed out or overwhelmed at work, you should definitely take a vacation.  Even if you can’t take the vacation right away, just the act of planning it and having that getaway to look forward to will put you in a slightly more positive mood.  Let’s face it, how can be made if you’re going to be going on vacation soon?

Cute and Cheap Sunglasses

1_0851
I love wearing sunglasses! If you follow me on Instagram ( @cateyesandcandy ) then you’ll know that this is true because most of my pictures feature a pair of sunglasses in them. Living in Southern California where the sun is out nearly all year round, sunglasses are an absolute must! Sunglasses are great because they help protect your eyes and double as the perfect accessory to top off any look, heyyyyyyyyyyy. I went to Nordstrom over the weekend and was surprised at how ridiculously expensive some sunglasses are, like $500 ridiculous! You know what I’m talking about, those Celine sunglasses, those Tom Ford sunglasses, those Fendi sunglasses, the list of luxury sunglass brands goes on and on but the cash supply in our wallets don’t; do you feel me?!? Sunglass trends come and go so quickly, the thought of spending $400-$500 on a pair of sunglasses just makes me want to cringe!

That’s where the “throwaways” come in. “Throwaways” are my nickname for cheap or affordable sunglasses that I don’t mind losing. I don’t mind spending more on quality products especially on classic styles that will last for years to come but sometime’s a girl (or guy) just need a pair of cute and stylish and most importantly cheap sunglasses that they can bring with them to the next pool party or festival and not get too heart-broken when they get broken or misplaced. The key to being a fashionista on a budget is spending less on something that looks like it costs a lot more than it actually does. Cheap (in price) doesn’t necessarily have to mean “cheap looking”. Trendy and affordable stores like Forever21, H&M, or Zara always have affordable dupes of trendy sunglasses from luxury designer brands. And if you can’t find what you want there, then there’s always the Cat Eyes & Candy online store 😉
