Club Med Bahamas – Day 2 -Photoshoot crazy

Chef Stephanie Izard

Stephanie Izard, Top Chef winner Season 4

Oh wait, what day is it today? When you’re on Bahamaian time, there’s no possible way to remember the time nor date. But I think today is Tuesday….OMG, is it really? You mean I’ve only been here two day and I’ve already consumed 10 pounds pork, fish, more protein and loads of wine?

It’s so hard to get into detail what has happened so far, all the amazing shots that I’ve taken and the amazing food that been consumed in just TWO days. I’ll have to write up a series of posts when I get back.

But I wanted to share some fun shots I’ve been getting in this gorgeous Bahamian setting, it’s just spectacular. The bloggers that are here with me are equally stunning, funny, talented and brilliant in their own unique way. No wonder they’re on this VIP list. I’m honored to be here.

So, yesterday we all played on the beach and had one of our many beach parties. With towels, suntan lotion, drinks and camera’s in tow, the picture taking was crazy.

I was able to take a few minutes to capture Jaden frolicking on the beach. Isn’t she just beautiful? Can you see why I had couldn’t let Todd be the lucky one to go with her? Heck no!

We also had a personal cooking demo with Stephanie Izard, last seaons Top Chef winner. OMG, I just love her. She is talented, warm and funny. For some who has worked so hard to be where she is, she is deserving of every bit of fame. Stephanie is the nicest person on earth and I’m thrilled that so much success that come upon someone so deserving, both in terms of talent and personal character.

    Beautiful pictures and even more, what a great photography lesson! I wish I was there with you, but am thoroughly enjoying witnessing the blogger madness via your blog! Have a great time, honey! Can’t wait to see you when you get back!

  14. Luna Pier Cook

    Jaden has always been better looking than she’ll ever admit. Your photos are proof of this, and you’re welcome to tell her I said so.

  15. The Daily Colander

    What gorgeous photos of Jaden! Now I want to see some of David and Matt! heehee

  16. Carol, Simply...Gluten-free

    Diane – I am SO JEALOUS!!!! I am seriously green with envy. I know you are and will continue to have an amazing time. Next time can I come with you? I will carry your bags, I will iron your bikini, I will concoct hangover cures – what ever!

    Todd – I feel your pain at having to stay and keep the home fires burning. You are a true gentleman!

    Thanks Carol. I can fake it really well. Ha ha ha ha! Todd.

  17. Rebecca (Foodie With Family)

    So nice, Diane! Jaden is gorgeous. But anyone who cooks like her HAS to be gorgeous.

    I’d love to see more photos (minus the thong ones. I’ve spent my life trying to keep my undies out of my crack and feel a sympathy urge to remove a wedgie whenever I see them. It’s bad for my OCD 🙂
    Enjoy the beach and the sun and the fabulous company!

  18. Leah

    Wow! It looks like you’re all having a blast and eating and drinking well. These pics are envy-inducing, but overall I’m just so excited for, and proud of, all of you!

  19. White on Rice Couple

    Thanks Jules! I corrected Jaden’s link where needed.

  20. Jules @ Lovely Las Vegas

    Oh! The steamy kitchen link above her photos does link to her site…. but later when you list your fellow Bahamian compadres, that is where Jaden’s link actually goes to David’s site.

  21. Jules @ Lovely Las Vegas

    Great post. Just an FYI: your Jaden, Steamy Kitchen link comes up as David Lebovitz’s site. I checked David’s link and it comes up as him, too. Hehe.

    Enjoy being a Bahama Mama!
