A GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY

A GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY

I’d dreamt of New York since the day my sister forced me to watch Sex And The City. Yes forced! She had been going on about Gossip Girl and SATC for so many years I thought I would give it a go. I rarely watch TV so it’s not as crazy as it sounds. A decade later and I’ve watched every episode about ten times through. I firstly fell in love with the clothes – God bless Pat Field and Eric Daman – and then I fell in love with New York City. So in January I made five New…

SORRENTO ESCAPE

SORRENTO ESCAPE

– THE TRAVELLER GUIDE – I’d never been to Sorrento before but having recently visited Venice and Rome I had high expectations on what this Italian coast line had to offer. Italy is always beautiful, even borderline make believe with each street and scenic route somewhat magical. A flight to Naples then a coach ride past the iconic volcano Mount Vesuvius followed by cliff tops all the way to Sorrento – not one for vertigo. The hotel was right in the centre and a short walk to the harbour, where you can swim, eat and of course board a yacht…

GUIDE TO VENICE

GUIDE TO VENICE

– MY FAVOURITE PLACES – I recently went to Venice and fell in love with it straight away. It is by far the most magical city I have ever been to, I can definitely see now why the Clooney’s got wed there. I find it hard sometimes to know what to do and where to go when I visit new places so I put together a little guide to help you out if you ever head to Venice! WHERE TO STAY I have to hold my hands up and say I’m a bit of a hotel snob. By that I…

CONCRETE JUNGLE

CONCRETE JUNGLE

São Paulo was a destination I never dreamed I’d get the chance to go to – not in million years! Somehow I was on a plane flying business class to said destination not quite believing my luck. If anyone mentioned Brazil to me prior to my trip I would have imagined a mass of jungle, naively not really knowing much else about the country. Flying with KLM was an absolute dream and there’s never been a trip yet where I’ve looked forward to flying before. I peered out the window, shocked to see a concrete jungle beneath me, wildly differing from the…

RIO ADVENTURES

RIO ADVENTURES

A trip to Rio De Janeiro, aka a once in a lifetime opportunity and the most memorable trip of my life. Arriving at midnight, glimpsing out the window I could just make out the outline of the Favela district, with glimmers of light peering out from the huts. As we approached Copacabana beach Christ The Redeemer shone like a beacon illuminating the darkness from the mountain tops. The waves were metres high crashing along the coast line, the entire beach lit up by flood lights with people playing volley ball and relaxing at the dead of night. Stepping out the…

ROOFTOP PARADISE

ROOFTOP PARADISE

NEXT STOP RIO… In a whirlwind we boarded the plane from São Paulo to Rio and landed in the beautiful Copacabana beach. Our stay was spent at the JW Marriott hotel overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, it was beyond paradise. I had to take a few quick snaps on the Marriott rooftop before we headed to Sugar Loaf Mountain – if anyone is heading to Brazil this is definitely a must see! This babydoll dress from Topshop was the perfect breezy ensemble to tackle the thirty degree heat. The hat was from Copacabana beach itself from a man who spent his days walking miles up and down…
