Tropical Dreams

posted by in Lust List

I’m a sucker for tropicalia, I suppose it’s the island girl in me. When I saw this on Amina Aranaz-Alunan’s Instagram feed I immediately was awash with wanderlust all over again. I would love to take this ARANÁZ silk charmeuse eye mask and travel pillow with me on a long haul flight to an exotic destination. Right now I’m dreaming of the Caribbean with the metallic sounds of a steel drum band mingling with the sound of the waves and rustling palm trees.


The kitschy and graphic print reminds me of the glamour of the 1960’s – Barbados with it’s beautiful colonial buildings and retro appeal. I’d love to rent a luxury villa and throw a fabulous pool party to rival that of Peter Seller’s – The Party. One so spectacular that would have James Bond gate crashing and ending up shirtless in the pool.

Love and Light and Tropical Dreams, Stephanie

The stunning Rose of Sharon Villa for rent in Barbados. I can see my guests in linen and bright tunics starting with champagne on the veranda before sunset then dancing with a cocktail in hand till the wee hours of the morning. Why not have a few vintage drunken lawn games like limbo and the coconut dance to get things extra lively!

Then sleep till past noon and wake up with a glorious view of palm trees and the promise of luxuriously doing absolutely nothing for the rest of the day….

We are two friends who were former magazine editors. Having moved onto other things, we both realized that the creative flow the publishing world used to offer us was missing from our lives. Armed with a common love of travel to the exotic and familiar, a penchant for the bohemian, an obsession with food and a lust for writing, we decided to collaborate our unique and fashionable journeys through life together in one passion project.
