Finding the perfect piece of luggage is a bit of a trial and error affair. We’ve all been seduced by fancy looks over functionality. We’ve all thought we’ve invested in a bag that would ‘last a lifetime’, only to find that two weeks of hauling around on buses/trains/planes has caused it to split right at the wrong time. We’ve all wanted to have the perfect bag that would apply to …

When it comes to large, established department stores, Harrods seems to always be the tourist fixation when visiting London… but think of Liberty when you want to get less mainstream and more eclectic. Sure, both of these places are incredulously expensive but sometimes, when a girl has to window shop, she might as well do it at the most exclusive and worldly superstore of Britain’s most fabulous city!

Nestled comfortably somewhere between …

I love to travel, so please don’t let the title of this post make you think otherwise! But if you’re a traveller who tends to take fatty chunks of time off to live the life of a backpacking nomad, you’ll understand that sometimes it can get to the point where you can feel, in your gut, that it is just time to go home. And hey, that’s ok! I remember …

Day by day we share our impressions and insights from adventures around the world with you. So why not offer a glimpse into our bags and tell what we take along to all those places? While we gathered online to discuss our pack lists, we discovered all-team favorites and uncovered secret habits. Obviously all of us never travel without their camera, so that one goes without saying. The rest of …

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 the place to be if you’re after a summer festival in …

Road trip check-list: you have the vehicle, the maps, an enthusiastic travel companion and the perfect soundtrack. But what clothes should you pack?
Sure, you could solve this by settling for comfy tracksuits, but you don’t want to be caught wearing them on every photo from your trip (unless of course you are going for the full-on gangsta look: in this case add mad sneakers, heavy beats and a set of …

I’m a lot more likely to be found on a beach in the north of England or the Belgian coast than in the Mediterranean – and it’s usually a bit chilly there without a thermal windproof rain jacket never mind without a bikini top, yet regardless of the weather topless sunbathing has always been a bit of a minefield to me.
My initial reaction is not one of complete horror yet …

Travel has been one of my most valuable teachers. Rather than sit in a classroom and learn about the world through a someone else’s eyes, I did it through adventures and misadventures, tears and laughter. I know I still have so much to discover, but here are some lessons that sometimes I had to learn the hard way. Some of them I already kinda knew, some I are silly, some …

Attention! Diamond jubilee fever is officially over after reaching its ultimate peak with the Queen’s birthday yesterday. Stores have spent the last two weeks frantically stocking up on emergency supplies. 364 miles of bunting has been snapped up at Sainsbury’s and Asda has ordered in a massive 2.8 million Victoria sponge cakes to supply the demand of the masses. Symptoms include irresistible urges to spend money on useless memorabilia (3100 jubilee garden gnomes …

I came to Vegas with only one thing to do on my list: i needed to find a vintage shop. When I thought of Nevada’s sin city, what came to my mind were tall women in glamorous gowns with high heels and feather boas, standing by the gambling tables watching their husbands and sugar daddies lose a fortune or win big. Surely there would have to be a vintage shop …
