Annie Vazquez, the beautiful and talented Miami fashion blogger took some time out from working on her blog The Fashion Poet to answer our questions and give us some insights into her personal life! We love her <3
Who is your style icon? My mother. She's so elegant and adventurous with fashion.
What is the one thing you can't leave home without? My cell phone.
What is your favorite tropical/resort vacation destination? I loved my recent trip to Jamaica and now I'm heading out to explore St. Maarten, San Juan and more of the Bahamas so I'm excited!
What do you look for when selecting swimwear? I have a curvy Latin figure so I like pieces that make my backside and thick strong legs look elegant and leaner.
What are your beach bag essentials? Big floppy hot, sunnies, SPF, lip moisturizer, a good book, my iPod and an umbrella.
What's your favorite Red Carter suit this season? Love the Sun Goddess flounce bikini!
Thank you so much Annie! Make sure to check out Annie's blog The Fashion Poet and follow her @TheFashionPoet!

Pumpkin Festival in Keene, New Hampshire
Ever heard of the Keene Pumpkin Festival? It's a Halloween celebration and a pumpkin carving contest that's held every year. Residents carve creative designs into their pumpkins, which are then displayed on scaffoldings of several stories high in the city. On Halloween night, everyone comes together to light their pumpkins and create a magical display of lights. Last year, there were 30,581 lit pumpkins! The main objective is to get the largest number of lit pumpkins in one place and try to beat the Guinness World Record. The city holds the record 8 times in the festival's 20-year history. Will they hold onto this title this year?

Here is our first pick…Guardalavaca, Cuba. This place boasts the finest beaches in the country. Funny fact: when Christopher Columbus first discovered it, he said that it was the most beautiful place he had ever seen in his life!
5 lovely Things to do there:
1. Get a tan on one of the nicest beaches in Cuba. There are three main beaches there: Guardalavaca Beach, Esmerelda Beach and Playa Pesquero. All three are just worth visiting with their white sands and turquoise waters.
2. Want some adventure?! Guardalavaca is one of Cuba's top diving destinations thanks to its huge coral reef full of exotic fishes and plants just a few miles off shore. There are also some amazing underwater sites to explore such as caves and shipwrecks.
3. Need a ride? Take a Cuban cab and enjoy the trip in an old American car.
4. Walk through the Guardalavaca flea market and get yourself some souvenirs handmade by local artisans.
5. Finally, visit any local bars and sip the famous Cuba Libres cocktail -- A Cuba libres cocktail is a mix of local rum and cola-- delicious!
OUR BIKINI TIP : SUN GODDESS styles would be perfect for that Caribbean destination!
