Recently I've got tons of emails regarding my wish lists, what to get me, how to send things to me now that I live in the Caribbean, and other such inquiries.
Well, let me straighten this out, My most important wish lists are Desires and Barrel To Dominica, Desires are what I want the most ... Barrel to Dominica is a list of items we need on an immediate or recurring basis, items that will come to me in a large package probably monthly. This package costs $150 to ship from the US and is shipped in a 55 gallon barrel, of course I still pay duties / customs and port fees on each package that comes in so these barrels are mostly household goods, cat food and stuff we can't get on the island. It's hard to believe but protein powder and quality cat food are nearly impossible to find, and canned tomatoes are sold out the day they are restocked in stores. If you follow my Caribbean blogs you can better understand what it's like to live in a developing nation, no matter how much it seems and embodies paradise!
Desires is a list of things I want less for need more as a lustful desire, things I crave and things that will come with a larger price tag at customs. This is why I greatly appreciate when pets / fans etc send tributes with their gifts in an effort to offset the customs/port fees I pay when I receive packages here! You can the most wanted items from each list - things for me to wear, equipment for me to film, kitchen and underwater toys!
I always need more Bikinis & Beach Wear, since I teach scuba diving, and spend most of my time outdoors, in the water and on the beach bikinis and stuff to wear when drying or wet are always appreciated. As for clothing; activewear like shorts & tank tops as well as floaty sun dresses are what I wear almost every day ...so more of that is always welcome. Sneakers, and sandals are highest priority on my shoe lists, I know it's hard to believe but I haven't worn high heels in the 3 months since I moved here!
For those of you that want to buy me sexy lingerie, please abstain, for now. I promise as soon as there is some lingerie I really want I will make it very clear, and if you know my taste a gift card to agent provocateur is always nice! The reality is I have so much lingerie and don't get to enjoy it as much as I did while living in the climate control of the city! It's much harder to take care of it here in the tropics but I do love it dearly, so select undergarments are certainly acceptable and appreciated! In the meantime stick to itsy bitsy biknis!
Please don't forget to send a tribute (google wallet to firstname.lastname@example.org or HERE) to do your share to pay for the duties / customs/ port fees that will come with your gift as it travels over seas!
Of course amazon gift cards (email@example.com) , google wallet tributes (firstname.lastname@example.org) and cash tributes are always appreciated and recommended when you just can't figure out what to get! You can get find out how to send all kinds of tributes at SpoilKayla.com
