Whistler Film Festival 2017

Posted by & filed under Music & Film.

Have you ever wanted to be one of those people who go ‘up the mountains’ for a holiday? Or perhaps you wouldn’t think twice about travelling all the way to Canada for a film festival? As a non-skier, but a lover of movies, I fall into the second category, and although the flight was long,... Read more »

Icelandair

Posted by & filed under Wheels, Wings and Water.

It’s always exciting heading out to The Big Apple. The buzz starts in the departure hall, and the airline staff make sure you’re psyched up throughout the flight. If you’re lucky, you can ignore the early/late take off and just sit back and drink/eat your way through the 9 and a bit hour flight. But... Read more »

BFC London Fashion Week SS18

Posted by & filed under Ladies.

London Fashion Week was five days of fabulousness. With all the usual heavyweights showcasing their collections, whether it be by catwalk, film or presentation - we even poached Tommy Hilfiger from New York!

Having just returned from a long weekend in Turkey, I feel refreshed, relaxed and just tanned-enough, to receive some raised eyebrow envy from my non-journo friends. With the temperatures just starting to rise in May, it is a great time to go to get some bargain sun and avoid the hardcore sun worshiping crowds. With... Read more »

Nevis

Posted by & filed under Americas.

Everyone who has ever visited the Caribbean will guarantee they will go back, and every patron has a favourite island, bar and story to share. As it was my first visit to Nevis and its colonial capital- Charlestown, I was excited to soak up all the traditions, food and sun as I could muster in... Read more »

St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel

Posted by & filed under Europe.

If you want to feel like a Princess when you arrive at a hotel, the grand entrance to the Renaissance will certainly tick any unfulfilled childhood Disney fantasies. A mere sashay, away from Kings Cross Station (parts of the hotel are even above it), the location of this historical building could not be more central.... Read more »
