Las Vegas with WWD MAGIC – Part 1

Las Vegas with WWD MAGIC – Part 1

A couple of weeks ago, I was flown to Las Vegas to be part of WWD MAGIC‘s official blogging team. WWD MAGIC is the biggest fashion trade show in the world, which brings together brands from all around the planet. Myself and a 14 other U.S. and international bloggers were invited to attend, host panels, blog and generally enjoy the incredible atmosphere, whilst also discovering Las Vegas a little bit more. I flew out with 2 other UK bloggers, the […]

24 Hours in Antwerp

24 Hours in Antwerp

I’ve been a bit of a bad blogger lately. There’s not been much blogging at all (well, at least not on here, but some here). As you can imagine, the backlog of posts I’ve been meaning to write is reaching epic proportions, so I’m going to buckle up and blog like there’s no tomorrow to slowly start getting through it! Just over a month ago, I was invited to go to Antwerp to attend the Royal Academy graduate show and […]

Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

I don’t know why, but there’s something about drinking on a rooftop that is simply far more exciting than drinking on a ground floor. It could be the incredible views, or the fact that you can unashamedly stare at the world and people below or simply feeling like you’re part of this secret club up in the sky. Whatever it is, I love rooftop terraces, and luckily for me, London has plenty of amazing ones. Here’s my top 10 of […]

April Instagrammed

April Instagrammed

Is it really May? Really? Someone pinch me! There’s still NYE confetti in my garden, so I’m not quite sure where the past few months have gone. April was a crazy one, packed with travel, exercise, food, friends and press day shenanigans… here’s a *little* overview of what I got up to. And if you aren’t already, make sure you follow me on instagram!  (p.s. I know there’s something wrong with the layout, working on fixing it. Sorry!) EASTER IN […]

#MoroccoInStyle: Casablanca

#MoroccoInStyle: Casablanca

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all of the world? She walks into mine. There couldn’t have been a more fitting welcome to the city of Casablanca than the famous quote from the classic movie lit up in neon in the lobby bar of the Sofitel Tour Blanche when we arrived on the second leg of our #MoroccoInStyle trip (see part 1 here). The journey brought us from Mazagan Beach Resort to the city, where we were […]

#MoroccoInStyle: Mazagan Beach Resort

#MoroccoInStyle: Mazagan Beach Resort

Just days after returning from my trip to Marakkech, I was on my way back to Morocco on a work trip, as the Moroccan tourism board had invited me and 6 other bloggers to discover Casablanca and Rabat with them. Royal Air Maroc whisked us away to Casablanca on a Sunday eve (we even had our own welcome sign at the airport – a first!) and we arrived late at night at our first stop of our busy schedule. Mazagan is […]

Postcards from Marrakech, part 2.

Postcards from Marrakech, part 2.

Sick of the never-ending winter, me and a friend decided to take a little break on a whim. We simply looked at the weather and chose the sunniest, warmest spot, which is how I ended up in Marakkech for the second time in just a few months. I spent most of it reading by the pool of our hotel (Kenzi Menara Palace), recharging my batteries – pure bliss. Here’s some snaps from my trip last week, as well as some […]

Greetings from Marakkech.

Greetings from Marakkech.

Apologies for the complete lack of updates for a while now. Sometimes – although not that often – even bloggers need to close their laptops, put their SLR’s and mobile phones down, stop Tweeting and Instagramming (well, almost) and take a little break from it all. The past couple of months have been manic and wonderful and so much fun, but in the past few weeks I felt like my batteries were running on empty. So, last week I decided […]

24 Hours In Amsterdam With SuperTrash

24 Hours In Amsterdam With SuperTrash

During Amsterdam Fashion Week (yes, it’s a real thing, look it up), Dutch label SuperTrash held a spectacular show to celebrate its new AW13 collection and I was invited to come along for the ride. SuperTrash may not be a familiar name to you (yet), but it’s a household name in the Netherlands and even Belgium. Now they have set their sights on conquering the UK, having opened their first boutique on South Molton Street just a couple of months ago. So that […]

Hotel Review: Taj Palace, Marrakech

Hotel Review: Taj Palace, Marrakech

I spent a couple of days with my family in sunny Marrakech over the Christmas break (see my other Marrakech post here) and got to stay in the most beautiful hotel I’ve ever set foot in, the brand new Taj Palace Marrakech. The hotel is set over a grand 55 acres in the Palmeraie area of Marrakech with the snowy Atlas mountains in the background, and perfectly fuses Moroccan and Indian styles together in the ultimate luxurious setting. It’s taken […]

Postcards from Marrakech

Postcards from Marrakech

Over Christmas I spent 3 short but lovely days in sunny Marrakech. It was my first – and definitely not last – time in the city, and although I barely scratched the surface of what there is to see and do, it definitely is one of the most colourful, photogenic cities I’ve ever visited… Here’s a few of my impressions!

The Hoxton Hotel, London

The Hoxton Hotel, London

Over the past couple of years, I think I’ve come to know the Hoxton Hotel quite well: I’ve gone to a number of events and dinners in its meeting rooms. I’ve spent many late nights having drinks in the lobby bar. I’ve had brunch/lunch/dinner in the Grill. I’ve sent dozens of Belgian friends looking for a fun, trendy and affordable hotel in the Hoxton’s direction – my point being, although I knew the Hoxton pretty well, I never had the […]
