Amanyara | Turks & Caicos




I’m back from our little getaway to Turks & Caicos feeling relaxed and rejuvenated!  Thank you to Brynn, Elizabeth, Jessie, and Irene for hanging out in Studio Swoon and allowing me to unplug on vacation.  We stayed at the Amanyara, which is one of the most swoon worthy places I’ve ever stayed.  The individual pavilions/villas are scattered throughout the property and completely secluded amongst the wildlife, as it is located on a Marine National Park.  The design is consistent throughout the entire property, and I would describe it to be a mix of Caribbean and Balinese style.  The sun salas by the pool were heavenly, especially when shared with their amazing mojitos.  It is the beaches of Turks that I love.  Their soft, buttery, white sand and crystal clear waters are unmatched.

M loves this shirt I gave him.  +10 cool pts if you can name who is on his shirt!


The hubs and I.  I’m wearing the outfit he gave me a few weeks ago as a surprise.  I love this ensemble so much that I took some awkward outfit shots.

Chelsea Flower Blouse White AJ Jeans

Seriously, these AJ jeans are the softest pair of jeans EVER.  I could live in them.  If you want to live in them too, click here.

Chelsea Flower Halter Blouse and white AJ Jeans

My Chelsea Flower top is equally as soft and I love the halter cross over cut.  It is also available in white.

Main lobby area.  I got a pair of red Calvin Klein sunglasses at an event hosted by The Accessories Council a while back, and they were my go-to in Turks.

Amanyara Pool Turks and Caicos

The insane pool.

If you are looking for a honeymoon spot or just a private relaxing beach getaway, I highly recommend Amanyara.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

What is your favorite spot in the Caribbean?

    Such a beautiful place to vacation. Your husband did an amazing job picking out your outfit. He has a nice sense of style.

    Holy Mother of Pearl. Why’d you come back? I would’ve begged the hubs to move us in.

    Kenny Powers! I’m now ten points cooler than I thought I was. I used to watch that show with TH. And although I sleep during baseball, that show was hilarious.

    Can’t believe he buys you outfits. If TH bought me my outfits, I’d be on the worst dressed list.

    Holy moly! It would be hard for me to leave the pavilion, it’s so stunning! You look great, as usual.

    And his name is Danny something…my friend knows him actually! She used to do his PR.

    So happy you got to get away! You deserve it.

    OMG it’s to die for!!! Totally going on my list. I’m showing J this first thing tonite. I could be accused of being greedy though since we’re headed to the Bahamas next week but I’ll take my chances. Oh and seriously, I love how M buys you outfits. We need a double date soon so he can teach J some things ;) xoxo
