Today celebrates a year since our life changing two week trip to Cuba in 2009. I have had a lot of people ask me about the trip and my experience traveling to Cuba LEGALLY and what my reactions were to the people, places and things we saw there. So, each day for the next two weeks, I wanted to relive and share our itinerary with all of you.
So much happened during the trip that did not make the final cut of the documentary. We filmed over 60 hours worth of footage, and the final documentary was 54 minutes. So, needless to say there is a lot more to our exciting adventure to share.
The months prior planning the trip could have been a documentary all it self. It took about 7 months to finalize all the details, Visas, contact family, CPI, Washington DC, contact La Maison before we could leave. My sister Michelle designed this amazing trip itinerary for our family and the crew to use each day. It had all the details of what we were going to do each day to make sure we made the most of our visit.
This is a map of the cities we visited during our 14 day trip. The Red Dots are each of the cities. We started out in Havana, then drove to Cienfuegos (about a 2 hour drive), then to Holguin (12 hour drive), then to Varadero (12 hours), and back to Havana (2 hours). It was a lot of driving to do within two weeks, but a great way to experience Cuba.

The Parrot Black One Piece swimsuit is one swimsuit you cannot live without.
Hola! I'm Nicolita owner & designer Nicole Di Rocco. In this video I'll show you why and how we created our signature Nicolita Bottom fit.
Nicolita has one-of-kind swimwear styles that are carefully designed to flatter your figure. Say goodbye to those ill-fitting bikini bottoms and say hello to comfort and fit!
Below are a few of our most popular styles that were designed with YOUR hips in mind.
I want to help you find the Perfect Fit Nicolita Style. Below I have created a Nicolita Swimwear Fit guide to match your curves with our swimwear options and styles. If you still have questions of which bikini or one piece style would look best with your body shape just Call 866-NICOLITA (866-642-6548) Email hola@mynicolita, or Skype me @mynicolita.
Over the last 13 years since I started Nicolita in 2003, I have worked with a lot of Nicolita clients on selecting the perfect swimsuit for them. I'm the first to admit that wearing a bikini or one piece swimsuit can be challenging for the majority of us. Even if you have a rockin' body, there are certain styles that work better on certain body shapes.
But I am a strong believer that there is the perfect swimsuit out there for you. And we have gone ahead and picked out some styles that are flattering for you!
Women with larger cup sizes are primarily looking for 2 things when trying on swimwear: coverage and support. While going up a size in the top can provide more coverage, some styles just won’t provide the coverage and support you may be looking for. Look for styles with side boning and molded cups to give you the support and coverage you desire, without the pinching of an underwire!For support and coverage, check out:
Have a smaller bust and want to create the illusion of a bigger chest? Styles with details like ruffles and molded cups will add volume and create cleavage!
For adding volume to a smaller chest, check out:
If you’re looking to tone down the appearance of broad shoulders, look for one-shoulder and detailed tops which will draw attention away from wide set shoulders. Deep V necklines will keep the attention focused on your chest and the low cut back will make your shoulders appear more narrow.
To elongate the torso, check out:
Looking to add more curve to that backside? Look for bottoms with backside details like ruffles, shirring, or our signature knotty bottom. These details add more curve to your bottom and create a more shapely bum.
To add curves to a not so curvy bottom, check out:
We all have those days we would rather cover our midsection. To conceal your midriff while flattering your other assets, look for styles that have shirring throughout the midsection to camouflage any insecurities.
For tummy control, check out:
Trying to keep your skin out of the sun, or just desire to be more covered? Look for styles that provide more coverage without sacrificing style, like high-neck tops, high-waist bottoms, and one pieces!
