Imagine a place not quite off the beaten path but one where time languidly passes by. You are the place and the place is you. Fort Kochi was just one of those towns that invited me to come experience it and get lost in its nooks and crannies. An hour from Kochi airport by car, this town that once belonged to the Portuguese and Dutch, is unlike anything I have experienced in my travels in India (which granted have been limited). While the biggest attraction to visit Kochi was the Biennale,
I’m always surprised by the fact that despite numerous houses showing collections for Haute Couture, there are roughly 1000 true Couture customers in the world who buy on a regular basis. And about 70% of that number comes from customers in the United States. When I think of Couture, I imagine exquisite clothes that someone has toiled over for hundreds of hours, to make. And Pret is a product of the industrial revolution and machines becoming a part of our daily life. So it was amazing to visit the new exhibit at
I’ve been trying to see a lot of America this year. And Miami had always been one of those cities high on the list to check out. So when a friend decided to celebrate his birthday there, a weekend away was the perfect excuse to check out Miami. For starters, it is unfair as to how beautiful the weather is there all the time and the water is the most perfect shade of blue/green I have ever seen. Not too crowded or rocky, it really is a great city to
It’s not making mistakes that counts but instead what you do to avoid repeating them. I don’t think those words could be truer of any country than Germany at the moment, where they are taking great measures to help alleviate the migration crisis in Europe. One of my closest friends in the city is German. For the past five years, we have both talked about taking the other to visit our homelands and to see it through the eyes of a local.
Located 30 minutes outside of Berlin, the town of Potsdam is home to Palace Sanssouci, a summer getaway created for the King of Prussia. Dowsed in Rococo architecture, this may not be talked about enough, but the World Heritage Site is a must see for anyone visiting Berlin. When one of my friends mentioned this as a the German Palace of Versailles, it quickly became the top must-see on my trip to Berlin. While Versailles is one big palace, the grounds of
London was one of the first big cities I visited abroad, when I was younger. It has everything you can want from a city – culture, food and every great store in the world. Since travel is one of the things I am happiest doing, I thought I’d create a guide to some of my favorite spots in the city for you.
It's been a hell of a summer packed with the one thing I love more than fashion - lots of traveling! I just got back from Turkey last week but wanted to start with photos and experiences from the last trip. So first up we have one of my favorite memories from London - Pret-a-portea at The Berkeley. No color speaks London better than red so I chose to go with just that. The concept behind the "pret" tea is pretty simple.
Nothing quite beats the excitement of an impromptu getaway. For a weekend that is a given every year, you’d think I’d be better prepared with a getaway plan. But for some reason, 4th of July is always something I forget to plan around. Though sometimes, getting into a car and driving into the wind is just what you need to get a break from city life.
For the last bit of my goan life tour for you, I wanted to take you through some of the more romantic elements of this hotel. Pepto Bismol pink seemed like the best place to start, to pop the blue of my skirt (mom and I ran around the property discovering one prettier spot to shoot from another).
I often ask myself what it is about travel that I love so much and have found that it has become a very cathartic process for me. I'm one of those people who is always in a frenzied New York state of mind - going a million miles a minute, often leaving very little time for reflection. Travelling has become the breather I crave for, when city life becomes too chaotic. Goan life is that perfect blend of activity and solitude that I love in a holiday. This part of the hotel featured above takes you through the area surrounding the
