FAVOURITE HOLIDAY

“Long days, balmy nights, breathtaking scenes and shopping sprees made my summer in Europe a fabulous one.”

JET SET STYLE

“I pack a healthy dose of glamour that—while a little too dressy—make for great photos. I’m loving maillots, strappy sandals, flair pants and cat-eye sunglasses.

BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

“Clarins or Kiehl’s sunscreen, a versatile eyeshadow palette and an old favourite: Bulgari’s Omnia.”

TRAVEL PERSONALITY

“I like to plan half of the trip then wing it for the rest. And I’ll never travel alone as I love to share memorable experiences
with loved ones.”

BEST PLACE TO STAY

“Siena House is a refurbished farm house situated on the Tuscan Hills amid vineyards, sunflower fields and fresh fruit and vegetable gardens in the backyard; it’s what Italian holiday dreams are made of.”

FIRST THING I DO

“I check out the view from my window. I once faced a brick wall but even that was funny and kind of indicative of the urban city we were in.”

GUILTY PLEASURES

“Carbohydrates in Italy, house pour wine in France, dancing on table tops in Mykonos, and taking photos non-stop, no matter where I go!”
