One Piece, One Life – Grand Anse Beach, Grenada

Lately I’ve been loving fun, printed one pieces that cover up more skin yet still look flirty! There are so many more swim options to choose from nowadays that I rarely wear bikinis. Let’s face it – it takes some serious dedication to always be bikini ready.


MelissaMay 23, 2016 - 2:20 pm

This is a fantastic post for this time of the year! I love the variety of all of these suits. I think one pieces have came sucha long way from seeing the unique designs we have now versus in the past. I will definitely have to go shopping for some of these great options. Love this post!

I love that swimsuit! You look beautiful! xo, Sophia from

Love this roundup! I really need some new suits for the summer and will be trying to find the perfect one piece!

Diving in the Shipwreck Capital of the Caribbean with Eco Dive Grenada

Ever since I got PADI certified on Ko Tao, I’ve wanted to dive again. Unfortunately, work and life got in the way and it was only now, almost two years later, that I had the chance to dive again. They say good things come to those who wait and luckily this time we had the […]

This looks and sounds amazing! I’m so jealous, such lovely photos too.

SherApril 15, 2016 - 1:21 pm

I had a fantastic time! Really recommend it and hope you get a chance to dive there Tenz 🙂

SherApril 15, 2016 - 1:21 pm

Thanks Trang!

MarcApril 16, 2016 - 9:26 am

Such a cool experience and glad that you had fun. I would love to do the same kind of diving one day. It was a fun read. Thanks

DaniApril 16, 2016 - 10:38 am

I wanted to do my paddi at the Gili islands as I heard it is the cheapest place to do it. It was still 300€ though.

Resourceful article, thanks for sharing!
– Dani

SherApril 16, 2016 - 10:42 am

Hey Dani – you should look into doing it on Ko Tao in Thailand. It is definitely the cheapest place in the world to do and to boot, super safe with a really high quality level of instruction. The island has a lot of dive shops so high competition really keeps prices low. I recall that my open water certification cost just over $300 when I did it there and included accommodation.

DianaApril 16, 2016 - 3:11 pm

I love diving! I just got certified last year!

Ajaya Kumar RoutApril 16, 2016 - 3:29 pm

Beautiful photographs and a great post on diving.Its always great adventure to explore the ship wrecks to go back to history.

ClaireApril 16, 2016 - 4:35 pm

This looks beautiful and a great opportunity! I’ve only been diving once – around shipwrecks in Cyprus which was really cool but I can’t wait to get PADI qualified and go again. Also really great to see you used an eco friendly company 🙂

MaggieApril 16, 2016 - 6:15 pm

Wow, what an amazing experience! I have never been diving but it’s definitely on my list!

SherApril 16, 2016 - 6:25 pm

That’s amazing Diana! I hope you have lots of upcoming dive trips planned 🙂

SherApril 16, 2016 - 6:26 pm

Thanks Ajaya! Didn’t get to go to any wrecks on this trip but am hoping to get advanced and wreck certifications in the future.

SherApril 16, 2016 - 6:26 pm

ooh shipwrecks in Cyprus! that sounds awesome – will have to add it to my dive bucket list Claire.

NancyApril 17, 2016 - 12:32 am

My son was just certified a few months ago. I’m forwarding your page to him, this is great information!

Bernard TanApril 17, 2016 - 9:09 am

Such an awesome experience. I have never done any diving trips before!

Carol ColbornApril 17, 2016 - 10:05 am

My husband would love to dive here! Great place!

AngelaApril 17, 2016 - 12:21 pm

Sounds like you had an amazing experience. My husband dives and I snorkel so a trip like that would definitely work for us.

SherApril 17, 2016 - 1:07 pm

Hey Angela – yes Grenada is a great place for both because for example, you can dive and snorkel the marine sculpture park 🙂

Connie ReedApril 17, 2016 - 9:24 pm

Great review and photos of your diving excursion. Since I’m not a diver, I’m glad you included the information on snorkeling in the area, as well.

TheresaApril 17, 2016 - 10:13 pm

If I wasn’t so paranoid of sharks and other scary sea creatures, I’d love to swim in the ocean and dive. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. How exciting!

MelisaApril 20, 2016 - 2:41 am

Staying on Grand Anse Beach at the Radisson Grenada

The Radisson Grenada The Radisson Grenada was one of the most beautifully landscaped hotels I’ve ever stayed at. Grenada is a small island in the Caribbean and I naturally expected it to look like all the other islands I’ve been to – sandy, pristine beaches with palm trees and tropical fruits galore. Grenada certainly has that… […]

Wow! That little hammock is one relaxing piece to cozy up!
I wish I could visit that place soon! Beautiful photos, Sher!

I know, I love hammocks! They just add so much to the decor I would love to put a hammock in my backyard someday haha!

Dana IvyApril 11, 2016 - 12:11 pm

Stop it now! I can’t with these photos. What a gorgeous place… can you pack me in your bags next time??!

Dana Ivy //

JoyceApril 11, 2016 - 1:06 pm

Does it really start only at $150 a night? It looks amazing! Especially that pool and the wicker pod hanging from that tree. The rooms look like great quality too 😀 And drinking yummy iced cocktails by the pool seems like paradise. Even if it’s so close to all the other locations, I’d have a hard time leaving!

SherApril 16, 2016 - 9:07 am

Hi Heidi – ooh i’m so jealous. the chocolate was so good in Grenada, we bought 10 different bars home to try. I’m sure you’ve already been but the chocolate museum had a beautiful display on how chocolate is processed.

Jen MorrowMay 18, 2016 - 11:49 am

The Caribbean has so many wonderful little islands to explore! Scuba diving is always on the itinerary for me. Beautiful property.

EpepaMay 18, 2016 - 3:24 pm

LianaMay 19, 2016 - 5:31 pm

Wow! This is a paradise! I never though Grenada would look so beautiful. I’ve already stayed at a Radisson, and this kind of hotel is amazing. They have such a great service, and the people are so damn nice! Beautiful photos! And thanks for sharing the advice! x

Hey Hung! haha the chess boards were all over the square! the old men were very serious about it to, there were crowds watching the games very intently.
