Here on this little island in the sun , a host of activities took place during this Easter weekend, from church services , picnics ,family get together and all inclusive cooler events. To me this was not just another regular holiday but a time to reflect and be thankful for the sacrifice Christ made for us to be alive today . I had the chance to do such ,while attending church on Easter Sunday, caught up on some work and also took a nice relaxing drive around the island here in Barbados .

For those of you who are not familiar with where I’m from, Barbados is a Caribbean island surrounded by beautiful beaches.

Situated in the Western area of the North Altantic and 100 km east of the Windward Islands and the Caribbean sea , this island is filled with  different  cultures, great food and nightlife.
However ,to those who have been inquiring about this 166 square miles I intend to highlight different areas of interest in Barbados, the best hotels and events to go while here on vacation.
Our first stop on this tour is Cherry Tree Hill , Saint Andrew where I felt like the queen of the hills in my Chic and Curvy dresses .IMG_3733

What I loved about these dresses is how nice and soft the fabric felt against my skin.I can definitely see myself wearing this to any formal event that I may attend in the upcoming months.

In these dresses I’m wearing a 2x however I usually wear a 1x depending on the cut and length of the garment . I also have the tendency to go a size up when I want more length because of my height .So, to all my tall plus size readers I would suggest that you to do such when you are shopping for dresses.

Here is a brief history on Cherry Tree Hill

Cherry Tree Hill is a village in the parish of Saint Andrew in Barbados. It is approximately 850 ft. above sea level. It is believed that cherry trees lined the hill at some point, which has since been replaced by mahogany trees.

Cherry Tree is also a part of the St Nichloas Abbey plantation , built in 1658 this is one of only three genuine Jacobean mansions in the Western Hemisphere.
