Carnivalista Wishlist for Christmas

Hey, it’s your girl Esha here!  Thanks for stopping by our blog, Carnivalista Lifestyle, where we help busy, professional women discover new cultures, attract what they want, love themselves and be comfortable in their own skin.  And today’s blog is all about ANY Carnivalista’s wishlist for Christmas!

As a Carnivalista for over 20 years, I can assure you that I would love ANY of the gifts on this list under my tree on Christmas morning.  I’ve organized the list into three parts based on the 3 things I love as a Carnivalista: Travel, Food and Carnival!

The businesses on this list are proudly Caribbean owned and operated.  And don’t forget you can lend your support in an extra way: follow their Instagram links to boost their visibility on this platform!
