While on vacation in Saba I took so many pictures! I thought it would be a great idea to share some of them with. Below you will get to enjoy them, showing the scenery and floral on Saba 🙂
At the ending I have added a few pictures that I took on St.Maarten right before leaving to return back to the Netherlands. I miss being on the island with my family and friends. This summer was so much fun and I enjoyed everyday of it.
I hope my pictures give you a feeling of wanting to visit the islands as well! Let me know what you think about them!!
My Tropical Summer Vacation is coming to an end soon…
Since I have been on Saba I haven’t been blogging as frequently as I would have liked. This is because I was having a great time with family and friends. I know this is no excuse but I am finally here! For this week I plan on uploading a new blog post every day. The blog post will be about different activities/the daily life on Saba. Seeing that Saba is not so widely known I thought I would share a few fun facts about the island.
Saba Fun Facts
Location: Latitude – 17.38 North ~ Longitude – 63.13 West in the northeastern Caribbean Sea.
Population: About 1,400.
The island surface = 13 square kilometres (5 square miles).
Also known as “The Unspoiled Queen”.
Great for Hiking & Diving.
Only one airline lands on the island. (Windward Island Airways)
Saba is so unique, to the point that it does not always show up on the map. (Amazing right?!) This is a great point but is also a bit of a down fall. Saba has so much to offer to its inhabitants as well as visitors. It is a very small island that is surrounded by endless ocean.
A few weeks ago I went on a day trip with the Dawn II (The Saba Ferry) to St.Maarten. In St.Maarten is where most people from Saba shops for different wholesale/retail daily needs. While on the island for the day I decided to shop for some cosmetics because during my stay on Saba I am doing different people’s makes-up. I got so much new goodies and was extremely contented with them.
It was my first time in a long time being on a boat. But I am so thankful that I took some sea sick tablets before going on board they helped me feel so much better. Two tips I have for anyone that are going on board the boat/ferry is to take sea sick pills before and to keep your head up and do not look down.;) (you will thank me later!) The boat ride to St.Maarten is about an hour and forty five minutes.
Well this is the end of my first blog post. Until the next one, tomorrow 🙂
Enjoy the pictures!
& leave a comment if you wan to know more about the island or a picture. 🙂
Since I am on vacation now I thought it would be a good idea to share with you my Summer go to make-up look. One of the most important things to use in the summer before applying makeup is primer. However, sometimes that great primer itself doesn’t always help with the heat on the islands.
In this new video I share with you my Simple Summer Make-Up Look. This look is simple but the combination of the bright lipstick, Heroine (Matte) from Mac Cosmetics it makes it extremely summer appropriate.
Maybelline Fit Me (Matte + Poreless) – 355 Coconut
Jordana Forever Flawless – 108 Warm Amber
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer *(can’t see the shade number)
Tomorrow is the day that I leave the Netherlands and go to Curaçao on my first stop in my ‘Tropical Summer Vacation’. Excited?Yes I am! It has been a year since seeing my family. A year since the last time I enjoyed some of the delicious foods as well as feeling the hot sun on my skin.
After spending some time on Curaçao I will be flying to St.Maarten and get a connecting flight to Saba. A direct flight is currently not yet possible from Curaçao to Saba, that being the reason for a short stop in St.Maarten. There I will also be spending quality time with family and friends.
Excited, yes I am! But first today I must do some last rounds of shopping, cleaning up and getting my suitcases packed. Off I go, into the city to get some last stuff.
Ohhh, I also plan on sharing my journey with you by creating blog posts and vlogs showing how beautiful the islands are.
Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram (@SJs_Obsessions) for tropical pictures & on SnapChat (@SJObsessions) for instant video & picture updates.
Soon I will be going on my summer vacation! I can not wait *YAYY* But before going on vacation it is important to do some shopping and add those things to your suitcase. I did a bit of shopping and thought I would share with you what I have so far.
I will be going to Curaçao, St.Maarten and Saba, while there I plan on vlogging my daily island life. If you want to get to know more about these islands & see what it has to offer do subscribe to my YT Channel.
