The Bahamas

Picture perfect beaches is what makes the Bahamas such a popular travel and insta-worthy destination. Every year for my birthday, we try to take a trip somewhere in warmer temps, especially since my birthday is in December and it’s usually cold.

What to do and what to see

DOWNTOWN, BAHAMAS: We stayed at the Riu hotel, a short taxi ride to downtown. Downtown was filled with lots of shopping and places to eat. Definitely a place to find great food.

EXUMA, BAHAMAS: The Bahamas is also known for swimming with pigs and sharks. That’s exactly what George and I did: the Exuma excursion, which I highly recommend anyone traveling to the Bahamas to do. We took a 30 minute plan ride to Exuma, where we then took a short boat ride to our first stop: the swimming pigs. The pigs were not shy at all, which is why our tour guide recommended we be careful when feeding them. They were super comfortable with people, especially if you had food (obvi).

We then took another short boat ride to our second location: swimming with nurse sharks (insert nervous emoji here). I was super nervous and anxious just because… well SHARKS, duh!don’t freak out, don’t freak out. Again, our tour guide made sure we understood the rules when swimming with these sharks because they could bite. Luckily, I made it back with all limbs, phew. It was honestly not as bad as it seemed. Now I can say I swam with sharks.

Third location was the sand beach – one of my favorites. It’s one of those places where it just looks better in person. Photos just didn’t do it justice. It was beautiful. I could’ve stayed there all day.¬†Lunch was next, and it was ah-mazing! I had the chicken sandwich and George had the fish burger. It was so fresh and delicious.

Our last stop for the day was the iguana beach, where we got to feed them. They were also very friendly and not shy at all. So glad I could check this off my bucket list!

ROSE ISLAND: We also visited the Rose Island, a secluded island where we got to swim in the ocean, snorkel, have delicious Bahamian food, and see more pigs.

This trip was definitely one for the books, and a birthday trip to remember. It was so much fun and I had a blast. Spending it with George and close friends. What more can a gal want? Amirite? ūüėȬ†Best birthday EVER!

What it’s Really Like on Blogger Trips

What it’s Really Like on Blogger Trips

Before I get into this topic, I wanted to start off by saying how very thankful and blessed I am to be a part of this blogging community that once didn’t exist nor was considered to be a real job. I meaaaan, is this real life?! I am very fortunate and grateful that I have turned a hobby into my career. And all of this would not be possible at all whatsoever if it weren’t for the continuous support of my blog and social media friends – YOU! Thank you.

Now where were we…? Oh yes!

Social media is really funny. While no one most do not like to share anything negative on social media (speaking for myself as an influencer), it’s really easy to judge someone based off what they choose to share on social media. This goes without saying, don’t believe everything you see on social media – DON’T! Especially when you see all these amazing trips bloggers go on. Wait – let me rephrase that. Blogger trips ARE indeed fun and am forever grateful for every opportunity I have had as a blogger, however; it isn’t always what it seems to be.

what it's really like on blogger trips, blogger trips, blogger vacations, bloggers, tips, travel, melrodstyle,

photos: Ryan Chua

Allow me to break it down for you.

Here’s what really happens behind the scenes on these blogger trips that we don’t talk about…

Before blogger trips:

  • Work on media kit and proposal letters. Outreach to brands to partner with me during my trips. Whether this is for complimentary stays in hotels, accommodations, or sponsored post collaborations. I love a free trip just as much as the next person, however, free doesn’t pay my bills. At the end of the day, I gotta eat.
  • Style my outfits beforehand. Taking photos of each look will help and make your life easier when shooting back-to-back photos.
  • Have inspiration photos to make sure I capture the content I and/or the brand is asking for.
  • Pack the essentials: camera (very important), chargers (very very important), the product I am shooting, etc…
  • Scout the location and area I am traveling to: hotel, outside of hotel, restaurants, shopping centers, etc. for outfit photos. Backgrounds are key.

During blogger trips:

  • Start documenting EVERYTHING on SnapChat, Insta-stories (because if you didn’t snap it, didn’t even really happen?!), Instagram, Vlog, and Blog.
  • Start creating content: outfit photos, product, etc.. depending on the collaborations.
  • Make time to eat in between shoots.
  • Then begin editing content, and start posting on Instagram.

¬†By this time, I have yet to enjoy the hotel, location, beach. To be completely honest with you, I have yet to really enjoy the hotel pool when I travel. Every Most photos I have shared on social media laying out on the beach or lounging by the pool have only been for a quick second or for the gram. I’ve never actually done any of the above in “real life” during my trips – lol. Sounds silly when you think about it. Sounds even more silly as I’m typing this post. But that’s blog life. That is my life when traveling for work.

After blogger trips:

  • Unpack.
  • Catch up on real life for a little bit. Then get back to work.
  • Begin uploading all of your content, and start editing.
  • On top of that – catch up on other work: respond to emails, follow up, prep for upcoming shoots and other collaborations, etc.

Although I have yet to master this whateveryouwanttocallit, I have learned that setting aside a few hours in the morning to shoot everything, has definitely helped me enjoy the rest of my stay.¬†And as much as I try to set a plan and shoot all content first thing to get it out of the way, things always come up and not everything goes as planned. Life, right?! There’s a lot of work that is put into all of these trips and vacations. A lot of people don’t understand or realize that these trips are a lot of work and a huge part of our jobs. Creating content isn’t just taking a photo. It’s not as easy as point, shoot and upload. It’s so much more than that. It’s a lot of work but a lot of fun, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

¬†I love posting in real time on social media as much as possible because it feels more authentic and right for me, but that’s not how it always works out when traveling. So one thing I have learned and would advice any other influencer is to post all your travel content after your trip to fully enjoy your stay. This will make it feel more like a vacation and less stressful. As a creative, you always have to make sure you are in a happy place and stress-free in order to produce and create amazing content.

PLEASE NOTE: this post is in no way of me complaining. I am simply sharing with you all what happens prior from posting vacation photos on Instagram, and during these trips, and the amount of work behind it that you don’t hear about.¬†I love what I do, and my goal was to turn what I love doing into a career. Beyond blessed.

I’m pretty sure I left out a few other things, but this is just to give you an idea of what goes down behind these blogger trips and vacations. If you have any questions or feedback on this topic, feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to hear your thoughts, tips and what works for you when traveling.

Last Days of Summer with Wet

Last Days of Summer with Wet

I can’t think of a better way to spend the last couple of days of Summer than with Wet in Malibu. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of summer is the beach. Summer is one of my favorite season for obvious reasons – the weather. I can seriously live in bikini tops underneath my clothes all days of summer.

I decided to hit the beach with one of my favorite blogger babes Enocha.

I partnered with Wet Swimwear to share with you all some of my top favorites pieces. This was a tough one to narrow down because they have the best swimwear collection with so many different styles and prints to choose from.

From endless bikini and one-piece options to a nice variety of cover-up pieces, Wet swimwear never fails to bring you the best of the best for warmer temps. And as you all know, I love when items double for more than one purpose, and can take you from day to all your night time festivities, so I was pretty pumped to find out that Wet carries not only a wide assortment of swimwear, but cover-ups that can be worn as outfits (insert clapping hands emojis here and here).

For instance, this beautiful black romper is not only perfect as a bathing suit cover-up, but also serves as a romper for a night out. Just add a strappy sandal or mule heel, and you are good to go and ready for a girls night.

You better believe that I will be wearing these pantalones when I’m not lounging by a pool or beach. They are so cute and would look great with a crop top, hat, sandals… I’m picturing my next off-duty OOTD right now.

Rest assured I’ll be taking this kimono cover-up dress out on the town. White cami underneath with a pair of cropped skinnys and a low-heel sandal. Done and done.

The Oaks at Ojai

Before we get into today’s post, happy Tuesday! I hope everyone enjoyed the long holiday weekend, because I know I sure did! Is it just me or did it felt like it was the shortest weekend ever though? If you follow my Insta Stories, you know that I had the most Sundayest Sunday of all Sundays.

Ok, let’s do this….

For those who have been following MelRodStyle for awhile, you know that I’m always on-the-go, and am always up for quick getaways. If there’s any talk of a girls trip or plans for one, you bet you can count on this lil gal to be there.¬†Enocha and I decided to take a very last-minute girls trip to The Oaks at Ojai, which was approximately a two-hour drive. Though it was a very spare-of-the-moment getaway, it worked out perfectly, especially since it would be my last trip with Enocha until she returns from her trip to London (insert crying emoji).

We stayed in a Double Courtyard Suite located in a private corner behind the pool area, which included a private patio entry. I loved that it was secluded because I was really looking forward to nothing but a peace and quiet trip.

The Oaks at Ojai offers an extent list of activities and services, such as Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, Qigong, along with facial and body treatments. Their mission is to provide their guest with an environment that encourages your healthy goals of all kinds, including your eating and exercise habits. The Oaks provides healthy meals and snacks throughout the day, along with yummy smoothies and desserts, as well as offer fitness and calorie conscious meal programs customize to fit your needs.

During our stay, we made sure to make time for a facial. We got the Vita D Brightening Facial Treatment, which included a marine based mask that helps firm and lift the skin, along with Vitamins B5, C, D, E and K to protect and hydrate the skin.  It was heavenly. 

The rest of our stay was very relaxing and spent most of our time by the pool lounging. This quick trip was exactly what I needed to unwind and recharge. Thank you to the team at The Oaks for a wonderful experience. I had an amazing time.

BRUNCH SO HARD, MIMOSAS WANNA FIND ME

As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, I am invited to many events throughout the week, and while they are all so much fun, my favorite events are the ones that involve food… don’t judge me. If there’s an event with food, I’m totally there. You can find me chasing the waiter around with the platter of hors d’oeuvres. To be honest, my favorite influencer events are the brunch ones (hashtag sorry not sorry). So naturally, when I was invited for a tasting at the Sapphire Pantry in Laguna Beach, there was no hesitation. I was definitely attending!

If you follow me on Instagram @melrodstyle, ¬†then you might’ve seen on my stories all the food we were able to taste. Sadly, I didn’t get to take photos of every dish (hence why I am not a food blogger), because my belly could not wait #STORYOFMYLIFE, but we had the following from their breakfast menu: OATMEAL, TRADITIONAL SANDWICH (hickory smoked turkey, scrambled egg whites, tomato, whole wheat bread), BREAKFAST TACO, BREAKFAST BURRITO, BUTTERMILK PANCAKES, PB & J FRENCH TOAST (ahhh insert drooling emoji here), SMOKED SALMON SANDWICH, and so much more. Just thinking about all the food we I devoured is putting me back into a serious food coma.

 

If you are ever in the area or are planning to visit Laguna beach, I highly recommend giving them a visit because their food is incredible, and their staff and manager were the friendliest.

Puerto Vallarta Diary – part 2

It’s clearly no surprise that Mexico has won my heart the past month or two. I’ve traveled to Mexico in the last couples of weeks more times than I have EVER. Don’t believe me? Click here, here,¬†here… oh and here.

So when I had the opportunity to visit Puerto Vallarta (for the 2nd time in a month by the way), I instantly jumped at the thought. I practically already had my bags packed, totally kidding… kinda.

We stayed in the most charming, romantic, breathtaking, jaw-dropping… you name it. I can literally keep going… boutique hotel – Casa Kimberly. And when I mean charming and romantic, you would think Enocha and I were on our honeymoon. No, but in all seriousness, Casa Kimberly is the perfect place to stay for a quick romantic getaway, but also great for a girl’s trip. I wish I knew about this hotel before because George and I would’ve stayed here for our honeymoon in a heart beat. Not to mention, the food, the service and every detail of this place was just so spot on and amazing. Just talking about it makes me miss this place so much (insert crying emoji here).

Besides the GORGEOUS hotel, everything around the hotel was walking distance to the main spots in town. We were just a few blocks away from El Malecon and the beach… can it get any better than that?!

Puerto Vallarta with Primark

As you know, I was recently in Puerto Vallarta for the second time this month… I know what you’re thinking.¬†

I’m so happy I was able to partner with Primark during my trip because whenever I’m traveling somewhere warmer, I like to pack light and find ways to wear same items more than once. Having Primark in Puerto Vallarta made my trip/life a whole lot easier than usual, because I was able to wear some of these items more than once.

I love when you can use a one-piece bathing suit as a bodysuit under a pair of denim shorts.

If you’re not familiar with Primark, then get to know them because they have the cutest stuff: from babe-worthy beach buys to street style wear. The best part is that their items are not only trendy, but they’re super affordable, too! Major WINNING!
