Peaceful Day On The Secluded Island…Block Island

This month has been a tough month for me just busy working long hours and suffering with migraines that I knew my body was overdue for some me time. For a quick trip of relaxation my bestie and I like to go up to Block Island, RI. Usually we go to do makeup at weddings on Block Island but today it was all about being one with the ocean. We found this beautiful secluded spot on the island where we discovered so many hidden gems. I personally need this time to get ready for an upcoming wedding next week in Vermont then Fashion Night Out, Project Runway Finale and of course Mercedes Benz & New York Fashion Week. Tonight it’s all about my fresh seaweed bath…see ya bye & luv you mean it!!!
So happy and peaceful here on this secluded island
I feel like Diana Ross in Mahogany in my color block cover up
Enjoying my time on the ocean of Block Island, RI collecting black clay, black rocks, and seaweed
Beautiful views of Block Island, RI
My bestie and I covered our bodies in black clay from head to toe. We looked like a character from AVATAR.
Always a great time with my bestie on Block Island, RI
