Aruba was an amazing trip for all the reasons one might already assume but my favorite thing about it was shooting my jewelry line, DeziBijou.  This island is all around gorgeous.  Aruba’s tropical turquoise waters and lushly landscaped terrain was the perfect backdrop for this collection.  Before I had visited, Aruba was on the top of my travel bucket list and inspired me to create the “Aruba Collection”.  While I was there I had the opportunity to take my design skills one step further at Terrafuse to learn how to make glass beads, an art form that I admittedly underappreciated until I tried my hand at it.  The techniques of consistent distance and rotation using both hands, one being halfway immersed in the flame of a torch was something like rubbing your stomach and patting your head simultaneously but, my artistic side prevailed and behold…I am now the proud owner of three strung necklaces.

The island itself is a myriad of things – windy being the first word that comes to mind but unless you’re shooting, it’s the perfect natural fan for those hot beach days all year round and, if you happen to own a sailboat, you’re set!  I didn’t do any sailing in my downtime but I did get a chance to charter a boat and scuba dive down to a shipwreck.  I think the thing I love most about Aruba is its widely accepted bikini attire and fresh seafood.  I ended up at a discretely placed locals joint situated right on the water with picnic style seating stretching out onto the docks- a must-do if you visit the island.  Aruba is romantic, relaxing and has just the right amount of excitement with nightlife and dining.  I can see why the Beach Boys included this little gem of an isle in ‘Kokomo’.

“Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya…”

    First of all I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally lost just tryying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Many thanks!

      Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a sweet comment. I absolutely love hearing from my readers.

      When I create a blog, there’s a bit of a checklist I go through in order to put everything together. When it comes to writing, I usually start by putting on some chill background music, making some tea and getting comfortable. Most times I prefer to write at night, probably because of the solitude it offers. As you put pen to paper, try writing like you were telling the story to a friend. Oftentimes it will come off more natural and you can always go back and clean it up or change things later. The most important thing is to get all of your ideas down first. Getting started is the hardest part but usually once you get it going, it tends to flow easily. If it doesn’t, maybe you need more inspiration. Try googling your topic and reading up on it. Chances are you’ll get some fresh ideas the more research you do.

      I hope this helps. Thank you for reaching out. Happy writing!! 🙂 xx
