Cobblestone streets Mykonos Town

24 Jun Comprehensive Mykonos Travel Guide

Mykonos is one of the most iconic islands in Greece and one that most people have on their itinerary, after Santorini. Celebrated just as much for its nightlife as its quaint cobblestone streets, Mykonos is an island that caters to a range of travel tastes. Since posting about my trip to Greece last year I've received a few comments and questions about whether or not it's worth setting some time aside to visit Mykonos. My answer varied depending on how much time each traveler had so I thought the best way to shed some light on this topic was to run through my favourite experiences there. I've also included a heap of practical tips which will determine just how much of Mykonos you have time to see and what you will get out of it that you won't find anywhere else...

16 Jun Inside The Loft Amsterdam

Contextual stores are something that I've gushed over previously on the blog. Their carefully curated items, styled in the context of real life (or my dream life), are the ultimate source of interior design inspiration. The fact that each space looks 'lived in' also appeals to my love of authentic travel experiences and immersing yourself in the city like a local. Moving on from the quintessential Soho style we saw from The Line, today we take a look inside The Loft Amsterdam; a pop-up store that embraces eclectic style and a love of natural materials. Come and take a look at the mix of designer and vintage pieces that will ignite your interest in the other canaled city...

14 Jun A New Take on Winter Getaway Outfits

Winter time is great motivation for a quick weekend getaway. You don't have to travel far from the major cities to find comfort in the cold. Crackling log fires, hearty food and a robust red await those seeking an escape from the working week. Or if you're like me you'll just get completely shown up in a game of scrabble (thank god for spell check). Evenings by the fire and mornings in the fog have traditionally called for heavy winter getaway outfits. In the daytime however, there's room to be more playful in your dressing as the sun comes out to warm up the air. This year, winter dresses take on a romantic feel with sheer, billowing fabric and long, tailored sleeves. Perfect for weekends with your partner (or the girls), these pieces are a refreshing take on winter wear and can be layered up according to the chill factor. I took some of my favourite new-season pieces down to the Southern Highlands recently to show you a more feminine take on winter getaway outfits...

Phi Phi Islands Travel Guide

06 Jun A Day Trip Guide to Phi Phi Islands

Visiting Phi Phi Islands is at the top of most travelers' to-do list when visiting Thailand. It's not just the stunning limestone landscape and alluring blue water that is bringing the crowds in. Anyone who's watched The Beach will know that Maya Bay in Koh Phi Phi Leh is a huge drawcard for film buffs and nature lovers alike. So with all of this attention have the Phi Phi Islands become overrun with tourists? And if you're pushed for time in Thailand is it worth making the day trip out to see them? Drawing on my own (quite disastrous) experience I have put together a guide to exploring the islands as well as getting to the bottom of crowd control...

Frank Body Scrub travel pack

23 May Traveling with Frank Body Scrub

Frank Body scrubs have been a go-to product of mine to prepping summer skin for a while now. They buff away dead skin cells to create a smooth base for fake tan. After traveling in winter though I found myself wishing that I had packed my body scrub for that trip as well. Four weeks in the midst of a European winter made my skin horribly dry and flaky. I have traveled with Frank Body scrubs ever since, being super careful not to spill the coffee-rich goodness through my bag. Their recent launch of the Grind High Club has made this much easier, with four individual scrubs in a space-saving mini size. Come and take a look at the new packaging, reusable satchel and your ticket to Babe Town...
