We teamed up with influencer extraordinaire, clothing designer and mega-babe, Sincerely Jules, to see exactly what she could do on The Venue Report. Edging ever closer to a staggering 5 million followers, she is an influencer in the truest sense of the word. Her eponymous (and enviable) clothing line is distributed throughout stores nationwide, she’s an ambassador for several big brands and inspires her followers daily with her authenticity.
We’ve known Julie for a few years now (remember when she visited some our favorite Italian hotels?) and it was long overdue to collaborate with her again. She booked her trip right here and jetted off a couple weeks later. How can you book your trip like her?

What did you pack? Tell us your tips, tell us your tips!
For tropical beachy vacations, packing light is key. I always stick to pieces that are versatile and are easy to slip into. The effortless look is definitely the look you want to achieve when traveling to a beautiful destination like Bora Bora. Light robes, Levi's cut-offs, slip dresses, two-piece bathing suits, about two good straw hats, straw bags and cute off the shoulder tops should get you to make worthy beach looks that are Instagrammable! Also, I focus on jewelry too! Packing 2-3 good pair of statement earrings and tons of dainty jewelry to layer up, is the perfect touch to complete any of your looks!
What were your favorite drinks & bites at the hotel?
Hands down the pina coladas! They were the photogenic looking and tasted so yummy!
So, you went on a stingray & shark experience. How was that?
Omg! I was freaking out! I'm already scared of big masses of water, so when I found out we were swimming with stingrays and sharks, I screamed! I gave myself a few minutes to calm down and take it all in and later realized that it was going to be okay and would be such a wonderful experience to take with me. Once we got to the area where the sharks were, it felt surreal. It took me a bit to finally jump in the water but once I did, I didn't want to come back up. It was absolutely breathtaking and so beautiful. The sharks and hundreds of fishes around us were so gentle and friendly that my initial emotions went out the door. Hands down, a must see when visiting FS Bora Bora!
How were those overwater bungalows?
It's like a postcard! It's incredibly stunning... it almost feels unreal. The bungalows are just as beautiful and so photogenic, as you can imagine. They're so private and it's the best space to wake up to and see the clear blue water. I could have spent all week just in my bungalow not doing anything, I mean they're overwater bungalows!! It can't get any more beautiful than that.

Word is that the water is otherworldly blue (are the rumors true?)
The rumors couldn't be any more true. The water is crazy! So clear, so pure, so blue! It's pretty insane. The perfect backdrop against the brown, cute bungalows for the dreamiest photos! You definitely can't take any bad photos here!
Favorite moment during your stay. Ready, set, go!
I have two. It was taking the jet skis for a long hour ride along the whole island. It was such an adrenaline rush riding through the blue waters! Definitely something I highly recommend to do. My second favorite moment was the spa massages we got as a couple. It was one of the most serene and relaxing treatments I've had in a while. It was nestled into a tucked away edge of a lagoon, so it was peaceful and the perfect treat to either start or end your day.

Are sunsets better in Bora Bora?
Sunsets are better in Bora Bora, for sure. The view from our Bungalow was spectacular. The palm trees against the sunsets were my favorite kind of photo!
How was your overall experience?
Overall, visiting Bora Bora and staying at the FS hotel was everything and beyond. You really do get to unplug and enjoy pure relaxation while having a beautiful bungalow to go back to. The food was yummy and so fresh, and the wonderful staff really made this whole experience there a lot more memorable. They were so sweet and hearing about their life on the island was fascinating. The sunsets, the clear blue waters, the endless palm trees, the white sand, the pretty bungalows, the food and drinks and the warm staff truly made this Bora Bora experience in my top 3 destinations to go to!
