Where Neon City rests its Bones

•••
When visitors think of Las Vegas, naturally everything glitz and glamour will spring to their mind: streets lined with posh hotels, world-famous show attractions, and 24-hour nightlife. Towering above the crowds, billboards and high-tech video screens in colorful hues vie for the stunned visitor's attention. And yet, one of the world's most famous old-fashio[...]

Attic Vintage: Las Vegas' best kept secret

•••
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 [...]

My perfect day in Brooklyn

•••
A few days in New York is never enough, in fact I don't think a lifetime is enough to appreciate this amazing city. On my bucket-list for my last trip to the big apple was spending time across the river in Dumbo & venturing into Brooklyn, an area I'd never explored before. As luck had it, or didn't have it in this case, my 4 day Brooklyn sejour was cut s[...]

Retro motel glamour

•••
I sometimes believe I was born & raised in the wrong decade. Although the 90's brought me great joy (thanks mainly to the Spice Girls) I often wish I could have been a Travelette from another time, specifically the 1960's or early 1970's. So yes it was before the days of the cheap flights, hair straighteners and travel blogging, but there was something s[...]

Travelette of the month: Solange Knowles

•••
We knew Solange Knowles was a true fashionista but what we didn't knew was: she's also a real travelette! We found that out after reading about her on Garance Dore where she mentions her pretty fabulous tumblr, appropriately called MyDamnBlog. On there she posts photos from her many travels around the world, more often than not stepping in front of the camer[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Surviving Khao San Road

•••
After returning from my recent trip to Thailand, people asked what my highlight was. It was definitely different from my first trip to the country of smiles and Pad Thai noodles, all three years ago (wow, time flies!). My new answer was Bangkok. The capital city it was this time! I know we've been going on about our love for Bangkok before, but Thailand gets[...]

•••

It's being held on Saturday 10th March. I have met so many lovely girls who are worrying slightly about how they’re going to get their hands on the cash that will make their trip enjoyable… S[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Perth

•••
Perth was nothing like what I expected. Located in Western Australia (WA) and being the most isolated city in the world, I expected it to be a very small condensed place with all the excitement residing in the city centre. In fact, the fun lies across the entire expanse of Perth throughout many suburbs which if not explored; means you haven’t fully seen Pert[...]
