A Trip to Isabela, Puerto Rico

 This past weekend I got invited by some friends to a discovery trip of beach town Isabela, on the northwest side of the island known for impressive beaches. The purpose of this trip was mainly to search for beach properties that could be a good fit to turn into an Airbnb. Isabela has a chill vibe, and you can sense a soft calmness through a delightful sound from the nearby ocean. Easy to fall in love with this beautiful beach town feeling the warmth of its people. A fun fact is that as we drove through the town, people would would wave to us. Several fun stops at local restaurant and bars followed, easily connecting with friendly and kind people from Isabela. We saw lots of properties for sale, this town is hurting by the recession, but I feel that with investors catching on and a great marketing campaign, Isabela can be on its way to become the new IT PLACE! There are some truly spectacular beaches and beautiful properties. A remarkable property that requires a post within itself, and an overnight stay plus interview with the owners is a magical place called Royal Isabela. I think this could be the most stunning and beautiful experience while visiting Puerto Rico and I feel it is a secret to the world.  Need to come back and capture original content for my LIVE Show in the FALL: “WebCityGirls LIVE from Puerto Rico”. Stay tuned Check out the Royal Isabela video story and some pics:...

Dresses: The Most Versatile Piece Of Clothing A Girl Can Wear

 If you open up any girl’s wardrobe, you’ll find a mixed selection of things. But, no matter what their style is, all girls seem to have a collection of dresses. Why is this? What’s so special about dresses that make them a staple in every girl’s wardrobe? I did some thinking, and the answer became so obvious; dresses are the most versatile piece of clothing a girl can wear. No matter the situation, there’s probably a dress for it. The same can’t be said for a lot of other items of clothing. There are certain things that will only look good in certain situations. For example, you can wear your gym leggings to Starbucks, but you can’t find a pair that will look good on a night out! Like I said, it doesn’t matter where you’re going or what you’re doing, there’s a dress for every situation. There are dresses for winter, spring, summer, and even fall too. To illustrate this point, I’ve listed a few different types of dress to show you just how different and versatile they are: Party Dresses It’s fair to say that most of us will wear dresses when we’re getting ready to party. Whether it’s a night on the town or the office Christmas party, a dress will always serve us well. You can get some lovely tight fitted bodycon dresses that show off your figure and make you feel really good about yourself. These are the dresses you usually wear to the club as they’re great for dancing in. Then, you have smaller mini dresses that are a bit looser which would be great for parties or get-togethers. The world is truly your oyster when it comes to choosing a dress for a party. It all depends on the dress code, the place you’re going, and how you’re feeling at the moment. Business Dresses/Smart Dresses Is there a better way of illustrating the versatility of dresses than by having the first two types as ‘party dresses’ and ‘business dresses.’ Here, we have two types of dress for two completely different occasions. Business dresses, or smart dresses, are designed for professional settings. They’re the type of thing you can wear to work and still follow the smart dress code. In fact, I will go on the record and say that business dresses are probably my favorite type of dress. You can look like a boss while strutting around the office in a dress, it’s an amazing feeling. Dresses give you that sense of freedom, but the style of these dresses makes you look very professional and smart. Personally, I find a dress way...

Empires, Pizza, Castles And Heart-Wrenching Opera – Naples Has It All

 Pronounced ‘Na-po-li’ by the locals, it’s the city that blends the old with the new. It’s where kings and paupers have lived side by side for centuries. A great getaway, It’s also where the dawn of the Italian Renaissance began. All through the city, there are stone sculptures that look down upon the passersby; some with glee and some with glare. The city still has the ruins of the Roman Empire laden all over the city. Naples is the little-known birthplace of the pizza that we love and enjoy. It was originally peasants who made an open pie because they needed it to cool quickly so that they could eat on the move. The city is adorned with skyscrapers, yet the buildings from the Middle Ages still stand strong and have been opened to the public as viewing galleries and museums. There’s only so much you can do if you’re staying for a short while, so here are the best activities you can enjoy. Cooking Class Contrary to popular belief, some of the best Italian cooks in the world were born in Naples, Italy. They may have traveled to Rome to make good of their talent in gastronomy, but their families taught them first and taught them well. A Florence cooking class will teach you the Neapolitan technique of making pizza. Simplicity is the key, after all, it is a food that comes from the poor peasant farmers who still to this day live in the hills surrounding the city. The classic, passata, mozzarella, and basil leaves pizza by far the best in the country. The quality of ingredients are unsurpassed even by the capital. You’ll also learn the humble version of ice cream, known as gelato. Silky smooth, but thick and rich, this is the treat every wants at the end of a meal. You’ll learn just how carefully the milk needs to be treated, and how fine the flavors needs to be ground and purified. It’s an art in itself, but you’ll have great teachers to help you. Pompeii’s Ruins The world will never forget the might of the Roman Empire. Despite all it went through, it lasted over 1500 years, which has no doubt left its mark on the city of Pompeii. It’s thoroughly Roman; the people are hardy, the rocks that were laid all those years ago, are still tough as they ever were. The UNESCO World Heritage site that is situated just outside of Naples takes customers from the outskirts of the city by bus and train. From this site, you’ll be able to witness the Mount Vesuvius volcano. You’ll then travel down to...

Lucky me just two weeks into my new life in Puerto Rico, got invited to this fabulous getaway by wonderful couple Rene and Zulma, who have invested in the island and own the beautiful Martineau Belle Playa Villa within the property of the 5-star W Martineau Retreat and Spa.
