We recently had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful island of Curaçao, a true gem tucked away in the south-western Caribbean.
One of my best friend's turned 30 on our trip and we were looking for a unique, fun experience on the island. The waters surrounding Curaçao beg for you to partake and partake we did! Smallfield Adventures took us for a day of exploring, snorkeling, drinking local beer, snacking on fresh caught Ahi and what an experience it was!
Captain Derek is a skilled fisherman who loves the open water and will make sure that you and your guests do too! With a warm welcome he guided us throughout the Spanish Waters, telling us historical and humorous stories about the island and it’s sea life.
We enjoyed fishing right off of the boat, snorkeling together, sharing stories, laughing and more! What an amazing, memorable experience!
Captain Derek is also a brilliant chef, preparing fresh Ahi two ways for us to enjoy with an ice cold brew; delish!
We had an amazing time with Captain Derek and Smallfield Adventures, learning much about the sea life and history of the island. We didn't feel like we were on a guided tour, we felt like we were with friends!
Spending the day together in the sun without a care in the world was truly rhe best gift! We absolutely love Curaçao!
Have you ever wanted to get a group of girls together to go on a fun trip but it seems you can never get everyone to commit?! Two weeks ago i was able to gather a group of 12 HITC women to head to VEGAS for a social media and influencer conference (ConnectHer17)! How awesome!! 12 of us Housewives in the City chapters representing the sisterhood under one roof!
We received VIP treatment courtesy of Giordano's, Johnny Rockets, Got Milk? and Deutsch Family Wines, met awesome, strong boss babes from around the united states and were inspired to keep doing what we are doing and make it great!
Of course, whatever the reason that brings you to Vegas one must PLAY and there was LOTS of it!
Until next time Vegas!
Of course it is always a bonus when your husband comes with you and you get to see old friends!
