The Everglades

This trip was ma first visit to Florida. The only place in the US I had been before was New York. We only had 14 days, I had packed this trip with so much hotel changes and places. In fact, we needed a holiday after this one because I was so stressed to make the most possible out of Florida. Does this happen to you guys too?

After leaving Key Largo, we had one night at a random hotel, got up in the morning and drove to the Everglades. Friends who had visited a few weeks ahead o us told us to skip the big commercial tours and do one with Buffalo Tiger.

The tip was great, Hubs and I were the only one on the airboat. We saw a lot of alligators and learned a bit about the Everglades.

After leaving with the airboat in sunshine, a thunderstorm came up and we ended up soaked wet. However it was a great experience i don´t want to miss.

Key West

It was hard to convince the hubs to spend some days with me in Key West. After all, he agreed to one night. One night and one day at Key West, can you imagine?

But I can tell you, he did regret it.

The drive over Highway 1 is breathtaking. We really did enjoy the view the whole time.

We arrived late afternoon and had a drink near our hotel and listend to live bands. As we were really hungry and had no idea where to eat, we ended up at the Hard Rock Cafe. The food was ok, our tummies were full and the place was nice.

The next morning we explored a bit of the Keys, walked to the most southern point and enjoy a bit of our day.

As we drove back to Miami, we had lunch at the Island Grill at Key Largo which was fabulous. The setting was great and so was the food. It was the first time I had Mahi Mahi and it was so delicious. If you ask B., you have to try the fried Cheesecake.

Sun care

I´m so pale. Like a ghost. B. gets the most beautiful tan and I look like a didn´t join him in the holidays or stayed the whole time in our room.

That said I have to take extra care of my skin. I burn easily and as much as I love the sun, I don't want wrinkles or sunspots and not to think of the worst, skin cancer.

Here are the products I use to get a light tan and keep it as long as possible.

Please keep in mind that this works for me, I only can talk for myself.

As I said, I burn really easily so spf 50 is a must for me. I´m a big fan of these Clarins one. I tried other brands but none convinced me like this one. What I love is that the bottle is a spray milk. This face creme gives the right amount of moisture without making you look greasy.

After the sunbath and a shower I like to coat my skin in the Tan Maximizer by Lancome. It hydrates the skin and is supposed to extend the tan. I use the creme for my face and the spray for the body. For me it works fine.

This s the first year were i´m going to prep my skin for the upcoming holidays. This water by Lancaster is applied two weeks prior to sun exposure on a daily basis to your skin and is supposed to help get an even tan. We´ll see.

Enjoy your holidays,
XO, Tamy
