I'm Back!


Well, it's certainly been a while...

I have finally returned from my three-month stint in the Caribbean - it goes without saying that I had the most fantastic couple of months of my life... but having said that, it's so good to be home.

I spent 2 months working in a hospital in St Vincent and the Grenadines, a set of islands making up a small country within the Caribbean. Chances are, you haven't heard of it... but part of the charm of Vincy was the fact it was unspoiled - next to no tourists and no huge resorts... just authentic culture, food and, above all, people. The Grenadines Islands (which surround the main island of St Vincent) were stunning - having taken a 3 hour boat journey to get to some islands called Tobago Cays, I remember emerging from the hull of the boat quite literally thinking the sight before my eyes just wasn't real (Google it if you don't believe me!).

The final month of my trip was spent in Panama - another amazing place which hasn't quite been discovered by tourists (at least not as much as other parts of Central America). During my time there, I was quite the daredevil - zip-lining, horseback riding and white water rafting were just a handful of the things I got up to... one of my travelling buddies thought it would be hilarious to film us doing these activities and I can confirm I pretty much screamed the whole way through them.

I wasn't planning on posting much more about my trip on here, as I'm itching to get back into writing about blush and bronzer, so if you'd like to have a little peek at what I got up to, head to my Instagram.

During my time in the tropics, I learned that I'd passed my last set of medical school exams... so come graduation in July, I'm officially Dr Ambi. It's been slightly surreal coming to post labelled 'Dr' rather than 'Miss,' but hey, after six years, I think I deserve a shiny new title.

Anyway, enough about me... let's get back to liner and lashes, shall we?

    1. Thank you so much!

      Drop me an email on bombayroseblog@gmail.com with any questions about Vincy - I certainly have some gems of wisdom to pass on to you about accommodation, the placement etc... and I'm working in the West Midlands, it was time to go somewhere new! :-) x
