Could this be the Number One Summer Accessory?

•••
It's the same problem each summer. I have nothing to wear, I need an entirely new wardrobe and an essential part of that is the perfect pair of sunglasses. With a whole 3 seasons in between I can't get myself to muster up the same level of excitement for the stuff I wore the previous year and so I often spend a considerable amount of time in the first part o[...]

From Tehran with Love

•••
There's this constantly growing fascination for Iran bubbling inside of me and it's so strong that I'm planning to visit Tehran in the next coming weeks or months. Part of that has been being introduced to Les Persiennes in a recent magazine article which I read on a plane. Nilufar Khalessi, the founder, is from Iran and lives in Paris.

The ultimate Travelettes Packing List for India

•••
Before my recent 10-day trip to India there were a lot of questions to be asked. Why would you go there? Is it safe? Why are you taking that risk? - those were the questions my mum was asking. Which vaccinations should I get? How to avoid biting monkeys? What will I eat that is not too spicy? - that would be my best friend, who was going to join me. And fina[...]

10 essentials for your summer beach holiday

•••
A holiday by the beach is always a good idea, but certainly summer time and those long hot days by my work place are the time of the year when I long for the cool blue of the ocean the most.
