Healthy Swellness: Win a trip for 2 to Jamaica from Nasacort Allergy 24HR!

Jamaica Sandals 1

As much as we all can’t wait for spring to arrive each year, with it, for some of us, comes nasal allergy symptoms. And I speak from personal experience. In fact, I’m sniffling right now. While my symptoms are pretty minor this season, in the past I’ve wanted to lock myself in a bubble boy-like chamber straight through to the middle of summer. The sneezing, runny nose and congestion becomes all consuming and the only thing you want is relief. 

And chances are you feel my pain: nearly one-quarter of Canucks suffer from allergy rhinitis. It all goes beyond an itchy or runny nose and congestion, though. Consider how your allergies impact your life. Research shows that it could zap you of energy, and even contribute to memory loss (both of which will affect your work and social life), to name just a few ways it can rule your quality of life.

Travel Swellness: Where to recharge in Jamaica

Round Hill

The April issue of VITA magazine is out, where you’ll find my article on where to recharge in Jamaica. You can read the issue online here (and if you live in the lower mainlain of Vancouver, you can subscribe for free).

Fern Tree

Besides the amazing meal I had atop a hill with a great view of Jamaica, some superb spa services (That’s Fern Tree Spa above), and a lovely cottage with a private pool, one of my fondest memories is the walk to the spa at Round Hill Resort with views of the Caribbean Sea (I’d love to be parked on one of those chaise longues right now!). Positively heavenly.

Travel Swellness: Chic beach getaways

Beach essentials

Sun and sand in your schedule? Just some of my essentials for a beach getaway:

  • Cute cheap-and-chic bikini. So many inexpensive options if you can get away with a string bikini style from shops including Asos (like the one pictured here), Walmart (I have a few from this big box store — you can get one for $12!) and Topshop.
  • Sunscreen. My routine: use an SPF moisturizer (Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration has a lovely coconutty scent and provides great hydration) post-morning shower, and then I throw a continuous spray sunscreen into my beach tote for quick reapplications throughout the day.
  • Flip flops. Just picked up new Havaianas (they truly do feel better on your feet than the cheaper flip flops on the market), but I’m coveting these ones, too.
  • iPad. Yes, I’ve been scolded to get offline when on vacay…but I think I’d just be more anxious. (OK, perhaps it’s time for another digital detox to relearn a few things!)

Still in the planning stages for your vacay? I know I’m always planning my next trip! Be sure to check out the four incredible  Caribbean boutique properties featured over on ElleCanada.com. (If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Twitter over the last few months and were wondering what lovely locales I was at, you’ll find your answer in the article.) I still dream of being back at any one of these destinations on a daily basis! Can you blame me? Check out this breathtaking view…
