Hello hello my lovelies! How’s it going?
A bright one from me today! Cuba is a place I’ve always wanted to visit and if you follow me on Instagram (@sachietv) you’ll know that I was there last week! I got on a plane and flew down to C-C-Cuba for a week at the Sol Rio Luna y Mares Resort!! I’m all about warm sun and clear skies, and literally did a backflip when I found out I was going with Matt and his family.
I had never been to a resort before – the closest experience for me would have probably been when I was 12 and went on a cruise. I couldn’t wait to park myself in front of those crystal blue waters and try to get some colour into my super pale skin. I have a little photo diary ready for you, as well as a rundown of the resort we stayed at!
Sol Rio Luna y Mares is a medium sized resort but there are quite a lot of things to see there, so I’ll be breaking this into a few parts!┬áLet’s talk about the venue itself and the beautiful beaches today!
A Week Away…
…In the middle of nowhere aka Canadian cottage countryside aka Muskoka aka Gravenhurst, Ontario. Well, a bit more out of the way, in a tiny little town called Washago. Matt’s family invited me to stay with them for a week at a little cottage they rented from a close friend. This was my second year staying with them, and I was looking forward to a week of relaxing and ~becoming one with nature.~ Unfortunately, things didn’t quite go our way. Keep reading to hear what happened, as well as taking a peek at my favourite summer look with my current go-to makeup products!
Round 1 Arcade
Round 1 is a large arcade, offering everything from rhythm games, dance games, bowling, karaoke, driving simulators, crane games…and more! It’s always a highlight during my trips to California because it’s so bright and exciting. It’s especially interesting because it offers a selection of Japanese and Korean arcade machines, including…purikura!!
I had one mission in mind…to do some more┬ápurikura! Purikura are japanese photobooth machines, with extra eye-enlarging, leg-stretching, and skin-smoothing filters. The photos are taken against a green screen, which is substituted with various cute backgrounds! Once the photos have been taken, you head to the side of the machine and decorate/doodle on the photos! I did two sets of group photos with my friends – keep reading to see how they turned out…
