Hey homies! If you follow me on Insta and SnapChat (SazanBarzani) then you probably know where I got my hella dark tan. Last week, I joined The Yacht Week with my sister and a few other gals as we set sail around the British Virgin Islands. It was unforgettable – to say the least.  This was my first trip in the new year and first trip in a long time without Stevie! I told him, “Babe, I got this. Everything will be peachy. I can travel without you..”

Before I talk about the breathtaking views, the pretty blue water, and the yacht week experience – there’s an important part of this story that I can’t forget to mention. As an influencer who documents all her travels with pretty pictures to help tell a story, I sometimes fail to mention the behind-the-scenes Sazan moments.  The truth is, mother nature decided not to be friends the day I was traveling out to St. Thomas. My sister and I were stranded at the Miami airport following another nightmare after nightmare. When we finally arrived to St. Thomas (it was 12 am – we had been traveling since 3am), our bags decided not to show up. My jaw dropped. I was afraid we were going to miss the yacht cruise! I looked down at my outfit and thought, “If these sweatpants and Steve’s sweatshirt is what I’m going to be wearing for the next week…kill me now.” We checked into a hotel that night and thankfully the next morning our bags arrived. Now it was time to catch the ferry and meet all of our yacht week friends!

When we arrived on the yacht, I was excited to meet my family for the next 6 days. I think that’s one of the things I enjoy most about my travels is all the amazing people you get to know during your journey. Looking back now, I miss it so much! From the delicious food to the morning routines of laying out on the net of the yacht to the fun late nights partying and singing “Nancy Ajram” on the yacht – these are memories I never want to forget. I get to check off my bucket list seeing: Norman Island, Virgin Gorda, Necker Island, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke and more.

If you aren’t familiar with The Yacht Week, basically it allows people to come together from all over the world to experience the yacht life. I was cool seeing how at the end of each day all the yachts meet up for dinner, dancing, hanging out all night etc.  I met  tons of cool people from different countries and discovered so many new things about myself in the process. The girls and I kept joking that The Yacht Week totally needs to have a reality show centered around the Skippers. Our skipper Jake was so hilarious. We decided to do a girls take over photo with Jake. LOL!

Special thanks to The Yacht Week crew and my sweet girls Solmaz, Annabelle, Ninel and Stran for making this trip unforgettable.

  1. Hi ! I enjoy your post and wanted more information on this yacht trip where did you sleep at night? And are you on the yacht all day?

  2. Wow the color of the water is just breathtaking! I would love to see a collage/post of your outfits; or a post on your makeup and skincare routine during this week. Thank you!!! 🙂

    1. Thanks for reading! I kept it pretty simple – no makeup most days. Regarding skincare, theres an updated skincare routine post coming soon. Working on it!! 🙂

  3. Why do you always start your YouTube videos “hi guys”. …..Very annoying. I think you are stuck on yourself and should get a real job where u have to work especially since you couldn’t cut it in Texas. You must spend your whole day shopping for cheap cloths and CVS makeup. And I think your eyebrows are too thick. They look manly.

  4. Hey Saz! That place looks like a dream! It’s look like you really had a great time, although it’s so weird to see you without Stevie since you two are always together haha, but hey girls need girl time too right?

  5. Ooo wonderful journey. It looks awesome. You’re my favorite, and the best blogger! I like your Instagram and videos, you’re my great inspiration. I hope you do other cool videos with makeup and hair styling.
    Have a nice day 🙂

  6. It was so funny watching you lip sync in Arabic!Sending you all the love and support from Lebanon <3

    Beautiful pictures, Beautiful soul, Keep it up!

  7. You are gorgeous! I’m trying to find a particular pic you posted on Instagram of this trip to show my Mom… (I had loved your red cover up) And now I can’t find it! It was the one with you and your girls on a boat.. Where can I find this pic??! Thanks!

  8. I don’t normally comment, but felt inclined to because of how much hate you’ve been getting lately. You’re seriously one of the nicest, most genuine bloggers out there and I really don’t understand why some people feel the need to be so disrespectful and mean. Just wanted to say that I really enjoy reading your blog and I hope you continue to blog for a long time!

  9. Seriously making me miss Hawaii! I lived there for almost 3 years and now I’m living through these pictures! I have always wanted to go on Yacht Week and this just inspired me even more! Hope you enjoyed!

    P.S. Love your spirit and faith. You have a voice in this world that people listen and look up to and you use it beautifully.

  10. Sazan! I have been following your Instagram for a while now but just haven’t made it to your blog.. Until now! Tonight I followed your link to read your thoughts on the new Instagram and got caught up in all your posts. SO good. My favorite is the one about the 5 Love Languages – so thoughtful and such a great reminder! You are definitely a blogger I look up to for being yourself, being candid, and having faith even in an industry that doesn’t always make too much room for God. I look up to you in many ways as a hopeful blogger starting out. Bless you!! <3
