It’s been roughly a month since returning from NYC and to subdue the insatiable travel bug that’s consuming me. Wondering what to do during a long weekend in New York City? I’ve pulled together my favourite pieces of our whistle stop tour.
I hadn’t been to the city for pleasure before (only work) so this was the perfect opportunity to go wild – with food and shopping of course.
Things that stood out to me most about the big apple:
- It is REALLY expensive. I was expecting to spend a lot but my was it pricey. Clothes were generally speaking, a steal (we visited the sale section at Bloomingdales a few times) but the drinks and food is where it will hit you – especially with the tipping culture they have over there.
- Best to explore by foot. Take come comfy shoes as it is a concrete jungle and it’s worth exploring as much as possible by walking around – you’ll find the cutest parks and streets this way.
- Sephora is life.
- The food, although expensive is fantastic. Equally as good as the phenomenal restaurants you’ll find in London.

Between 7am gym classes and hitting the road every other weekend, I’ve started to develop a need for downsizing my make up bag. All that with the intention of still maintaining ample choice in beauty looks. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve built up a routine that doesn’t sacrifice quality but still pulls together perfectly for a weekend away. Currently sunning it up in my home town of Tangier Morocco, check out the products that have made the cut for my travel bag!
This month I’ve developed a few new firm favourites in foundation and fragrance. After a couple of months of testing all these recent purchases (and Christmas gifts) I wanted to shout out about a few just in case you were considering a little splurge…

I first stumbled across Desenio on Little Big Bell and was just in awe of the bright, colour prints she’d styled together. A good two hours later I’d found the posters online and was lost in the endless combinations that I’d put together for my mum’s living room…
And hallway, and stairway…
Stuart and I like to eat. It’s no secret, we’re not ashamed to order enough food for four between the two of us. YEP. We’ve done that before. Anyway while we pile on the pounds we can at least spare you the suffering and just send you off straight to the good stuff, right?
