Costa Rica!

It is with great jubilation and a lot of excited shrieking that I inform you I will be vacationing in Costa Rica during Christmas break. (My chronic fatigue seems to be slowly improving, and I think I'll be up to a little beach-going.)

You know what this means, don't you? Shopping is in order! I need a new swimsuit, sunglasses, and possibly a new beach-y tote. The search is on!

I know that my swimsuit selection will be limited due to the fact that a) It's the dead of winter and b) My chest refuses to stay covered in itty bitty bikini tops (TMI?), but I think it would be fun to go for a sort of glam swim look.


Of course, the platform heels and belt are totally impractical for the beach. But the cute retro swimsuit, ponytail, and headband? I might be able to do that.

Well, we'll see. Any suggestions as to where to shop for swimwear at this time of year?

It should be easy to find a swimsuit online. Probably on clearance too!

You're going to love Costa Rica!!!

You'd think so, but when I looked, the selection was reaaally limited. Boo.

I bet I will! Excitement!

I've got no suggestions, but you better give us a rundown of your trip when you get back! I'm thinking of going to Panama. Close enough to CR. I'm reading up on everything I can in that part of the world.

I don't know what your budget's like, but I think this suit is adorable: http://www.amazon.com/Polka-dot-maillot-plus-size-BLACK-DOT/dp/B000N9X8RA/ref=sr_1_31?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qid=1196898357&sr=1-31

I saw an ADORABLE bikini by Betsy Johnson at Bloomingdales (ca-ching). J.crew online has just restocked with a new selection. I don't think you'll have two much trouble in department stores as they should have some of the resort collections in.

Funny thing: I always had a fantasy about wearing some super high and super sexy heels at the pool. I know that people would look at me with hateful eyes....but at least I would look good!! ha ha!

While looking for bikinis online, you might have come across various bikini stores that promise attractive bikinis at cheap prices but as you buy bikini from the online shop you may come to known that the product that is delivered to you is not a genuine one. All the bikini stores operating online are not authentic bikini sellers and hence before you purchase bikini over the internet, you should verify and obtain accurate information on whether it is a genuine bikini store.

It’s great whenever someone asks me about Costa Rica, best vacation hotels, the real estate investment outlook, or the wellness aspects. I enjoy sharing my experiences in making choices when visiting Costa Rica’s southern Pacific Coast.
