Soho Farmhouse: Is it worth the hype?

Soho Farmhouse is without a shadow of a doubt the "place to be" at the moment.  If you check out the geotag on Instagram you'll see it's permanently booked out with celebrities, mega bloggers and very glamorous ladies who lunch.  When my gorgeous friends suggested an overnight stay as an (early) birthday celebration I could barely contain my excitement.

An Evening on the [Mykonos] Town

We've reached the third and final post about my recent Mykonos getaway. I thought I'd share a bit about Mykonos town itself which is the hub of the island. Read more

Mykonos Style, Sorted!

When you're on holiday it's absolutely essential to feel comfortable, especially if you're like me and want to sample as much of the local cuisine as possible.  I have to make sure whatever I'm wearing has room for a full on food baby! This look was my favourite and allowed for plenty of eating! Read more

San Giorgio, Mykonos

I'm currently on my first holiday of the year. Yes, I do realise it's October and I've left it a bit late! I'm so excited to be in Mykonos for a few days to catch some sun and had to share a full review of the hotel I'm currently staying in called San Giorgio. Read more

My EasyJet Travel Look

I'm so excited because today I'm headed off to Mykonos for four glorious days! It's my first holiday this year with no work involved, so I'm really looking forward to relaxing and catching up on some sleep.  Sadly, like all good things, you have to get through a little bit of hassle to get to the good part.  This trip involves a 4:30am wake-up call and an easyJet flight. We all know flying easyjet is a pain so I thought I'd share what I wear and how I prepare for it. Read more

Brands to Buy in the US: Beauty

I already posted the first part of my brands to buy in the US which predominantly focused on fashion (with Apple thrown in there too) but I figured as I spent as much on beauty products as I did anything else, I'd dedicate a whole post on which beauty brands to splash out on when you are Stateside. There are quite a few. Read more

Brands to Buy in the US: Fashion

I think it is fair to say I have spent a substantial time in the US recently and while there I got to know the shops pretty well!  Although I shopped hard I also shopped smart.  This meant buying brands which cost far less than at home. So, I thought it only fair to share some of the best places and brands to buy in the US. Read more

That New Dress Travels: Halloween (American Style)

Its been ages since I've done a proper lifestyle blog post, so I thought it was about time to update you on my current shenanigans and when better then Halloween in LA?! Being my first American Halloween I wanted to soak up every ghoulish, outlandish and ridiculous ounce of the spooky spirit engulfing the city. Read more

That New Dress Travels: Timeless Boutique Melrose Avenue

Melrose is quite possibly my favourite shopping street in LA.  If you haven't strutted down the famous Melrose Avenue then the first thing you should know is it can be distinctly divided into two parts. Once you head past Fairfax, Melrose changes.  It becomes hipper and younger and full of independent boutiques of which my favourite is called Timeless. Read more

Saks off 5th: The Place to Pick up a Designer Bargain

Saks off 5th is one of my favourite shopping haunts in LA for picking up a designer bargain.  They recently opened their doors at the Beverly Connection on Las Cienega (opposite the Beverly Centre).  It is definitely the best of the discount department store outlets I've visited.  It is wonderfully laid out, easy to navigate and far tidier than a lot of their competitor's outlets.  Also, the designer brand selection is second to none.
