Try walking in my shoes

•••
There is no denying it, the life of a travel blogger comes with many perks. We get to go on trips to amazing places, meet people we'd never normally have met and every once and so often we get to test drive cool stuff. Still my girly favorite product to review: shoes. The popular Spanish brand Camper has invited me to literally walk in their shoes for[...]

The Travelettes guide to packing for festivals

•••
Oh Glastonbury. The iconic English music festival. The place to be in June where you can frolic in fields, listen to great music, see great fashion, party with friends (and strangers) and just generally have a fantastic knees-up in the old British countryside. You've probably been inundated with festival highlights and updates over the media waves as it is t[...]

The UK's amazing, travelling vintage fair

•••
Roll up, roll up, the fair's in town! Ok, so if you're seeking a ride in the bumper cars and a face full of cotton candy, this might not be quite what you're looking for.

How to get the London look

•••
North, south, east and west… No Dorothy, we’re not in Kansas anymore, we’re in London, the city that currently holds the accolade Style Capital of the World; and that gingham smock just ain’t going to cut it. It’s often struck me how our nation’s capital seems to be split into four distinct districts, all with their own fabulous shopping, identity and style.[...]

A guide to Harajuku fashion

•••
Harajuku! Smack bang near the top of my ‘places I need to go’ list, the mere name of this district of Tokyo never fails to conjure up a glittering montage of tempting images. Delicious sushi, crazy theme bars, neon lights… but the major draw? The fashion. Harajuku style put Japan on the fashion map. Heads were turned when photographer Shoichi Aoki began t[...]

10 of the world's most fashionable museums

•••
Italians are known for their fabulous shoes, French women for their elegance, and who can forget about the fantastic royal wedding dress of English princess Kate earlier this year? Different countries as well as time periods are associated with different styles and fashions. I can spend way too much time looking at my favorite streetstyle blogs from around t[...]

Melbourne Cup Day - The Race That Stops A Nation

•••
‘Melbourne Cup’ is an age old institution and tradition of the state of Victoria, Australia. I admit, I had never heard about it in previous trips to Oz until I came to live permanently in Melbourne and heard about an event which allowed excited Melbournians to have a public holiday. I was now an excited Melbournian who got a day off... but what was this all[...]

Women spend more on clothes for a vacation than on the vacation itself

•••
And didn't I know it - a UK study has found out, after asking 1000 women via an online poll, that about 85% of women spend more on the pre-departure shopping than they do on the actual holiday. This may not come as a huge eye-opener to most, but it's still a pretty fun fact to be faced with. UK women spend an average of $1000 on their trip, but a whopping[...]
