Opalite

Even though Southern California has hit 110ºF+ this week, I am still missing the Dominican Republic- even with all its humidity!

So be on the lookout on HARRISON’s Facebook page!

Like I mentioned in my last vlog, my auntie wanted to get one last shoot in before I left so we literally carried our little baggy of HARRISON’s goods and took photos all around the Riu Resort. Little can you tell in these photos, I was already peeling from my sunbathing session the day before (yikes!).

One of my favorite collections from HARRISON’s is their opalite collection, which is what I’m wearing in these photos. They are SO pretty; they glisten on their own! Plus, when they are in the form of a little sandal they are even cuter (note the earrings!). Check out HARRISON’s opalite collection here.

Many of which I still stay in contact with today. I never expected to meet such wonderful people; I just thought I would be in-and-out of a country my relatives had a connection with. But as you can see in the above photo, my face wasn’t red because I got burnt from the sun! No, those were tears on my last night with my newfound friends.

Dominican Republic Dreamin’: My Favorite Pastime

There are so many wonderful things to do in the Dominican Republic, from hitting the beach to eating at the coolest, authentic food spots. There’s so much culture to be engrossed in, that’s why I don’t have a specific location that I could pinpoint as my favorite place. Truthfully? Just roaming around the cities and absorbing new sights, sounds, and smells while learning more about the country’s history is what I enjoy most!
