A Heartwarming Engagement Story
Baby, it's cold outside, that is unless you're basking in the sun at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Editor, photographer and model, Sky Naite shared her surprise trip to Seychelles with us, and her now fiancé wins extra bonus points for coming up with the idea on his own (Gents, feel free to take notes).

I said YES… A few months back, my boyfriend at the time - now fiancé (oh it just seems so nice and right saying it) told me he had planned a getaway but I will know nothing until we are actually there. Over that period of time I kept trying to get details out of him as I needed to know what to pack etc., however he did not give in and said nothing, not even to my family who were very curious to know where we were going.

Usually when planning vacation we both plan it together and this time was very different. All along I thought this was our anniversary getaway since we were approaching almost 3 years together. Packing for the trip was definitely very tough, I had him sit down in front of the closet as I was taking clothes out and showing him, asking whether I should take it or not. Going away for 9 days and not knowing the weather made packing very difficult.

Anyhow, I only packed a tiny carry on as I was so confused with what to take. We got to the airport early in the morning, and he immediately told me that I would know the first place we were going to by seeing the first flight's ticket, here it was Abu Dhabi! You can only imagine my reaction…Here I am thinking of a romantic getaway..but we are going to Emirates?! I could've not been more confused, I did try to keep it all together and go with the flow as I realized it was just another vacation and not a romantic getaway.

We stayed in Abu Dhabi for 2 days, which I will be sharing photos of soon on the blog! On the third day we went back to the airport…this time the ticket said Seychelles and oh my was I excited! Last year we went to Maldives and I absolutely loved it, so I was overly excited for a similar tropical vacation. Layover was just a little over 4 hours and I could not keep the excitement together. Finally, my dream was coming true - beach, white sand, tropical island.
A Heartwarming Engagement Story
We hung around the island the first day, on the second day he planned a boat trip to La Digue island where the most beautiful beach of the world is located. He kept it together all morning without giving away any nerves or excitement, he acted like nothing was happening and we were just going there to take pictures. As soon as we approached the beach he told me that there was this idea of a picture he wanted to do and I had to do what he said.

So, he asked this random couple standing by us to take a picture doing some pose he is talking about but not telling me what it is (another confusing moment for me haha). So here I am making my way through the sand to him trying to figure out how to pose and that moment he got down on his knee and proposed!

 Honestly, everything about that moment was perfect, white sand beach, beautiful turquoise waters and the man of my dreams.  I will be sharing quite a few posts from Seychelles in December on my blog, make sure to check back, xo.
