Just as soon as BlissDom Canada wrapped up for 2013, my business partner, Jennifer, and I received an email with an invitation to Paradise! 

Allamanda Villa Women’s Retreat by Dynamic Retreats wants us to join them for a week of morning yoga practices, healthy organic meals, dance classes, and fun excursions which include everything from surfing to hiking waterfalls to zip-lining! On top of that, there’s an abundance of massages and mani & pedis…

In Montego Bay, Jamaica!!! 



Even though my husband may have burst a blood vessel laughing at the thought of me waking up early and exercising… who knows honey, I may like watching the sun rise overlooking the Caribbean Sea.



It’s all about the environment in which you exercise… right?!




This will be my first trip to Jamaica! I’m very excited. But there’s one catch…



We leave this Saturday!!
In typical Jenn and Shash style, we’re taking the bull by the horns and going October 19-26! 
As my kids say, “YOLO!”
I’m looking forward to sharing meals around this dining room table. Another fantastic thing about this particular retreat… there will only be 8 other people there! 
That’s fewer people than live in my house…
Stay tuned to posts and pictures while we’re there. Thanks to Nokia Canada, all photos will be taken with the brand new Nokia Lumia 1020 – which has 41 megapixels. Yes, you heard me right, 41!!
