SliderandSM #MartiniqueRomantique: The Island Paradise

It’s officially that time of year: the temperatures drop, Starbucks has cranberry-colored cups, and we’re even seeing snow in some parts of the country (except Los Angeles, you don’t count). So with the inception of “sweater weather,” it’s time to start day-dreaming about those seemingly far-off beach vacations.  Well, we dare you to dream big: it doesn’t get any better than the Caribbean– and this one happens to be très chic. It basically looks like a screen savor, amiright?

Martinique2 1024x679 #MartiniqueRomantique: The Island Paradise

This wanderlust-y destination is Martinique, an island in the Eastern Caribbean sea. It is an overseas region of France, and an integral part of the French Republic (so think of Paris on a beach).  We’ve partnered with Atout France to giveaway an incredible Martinique vacation, for two! The prize includes 2 roundtrip tickets courtesy of American Airlines, 4 nights in paradise at the Cap Est Lagoon Resort and Spa (which is a 5-Star resort) dinner for 2 at the  Cap Est’s gastronomic restaurant, Le Belem, and a cooking class with master chef Jean-Charles Bredas at Martinique Gastronomie. We will also have 4 bridal bloggers in Martinique from today (Nov 19) to Nov 22nd, posting their experiences live, which will be streamed on this site and through #MartiniqueRomantique on social media.

How to Pamper on your Honeymoon

pamper11 How to Pamper on your Honeymoon

Your honeymoon should be a time of pampering, for both parties. Here are some of our favorite ways to lavish love and attention on one another.

Turn up the romance all the way with special details in the hotel room. Have bouquets of flowers in the room when you arrive or leave petals on the floor and bed. A jacuzzi tub is always a nice upgrade to a hotel room and a nice way to relax. Line the the tub with candles and rose petals.

Get a limousine or private town-car service to take you around. Take cabs, rather than deal with public transportation.

Do something healthy and relaxing together. Get couples massages, facials, do partner yoga, or take a private yoga class on the beach. Add an extra twist to one of your outdoor adventures. If you’re going for a hike, pre-set a  picnic on the hiking trail.
