My new Obsession with Turkish Towels

My new Obsession with Turkish Towels

Turkish Towels were one of those things I always wanted, but had never been entirely convinced on how effective they really are. Sure they look fabulous and effortlessly stylish in bathrooms (and on beaches), but do they actually work in terms of drying you after a shower or a swim?

The answer is YES, and today and I’m going to tell you all about my obsession with Turkish Towels, what they are and why you need these gorgeous towels in your life!

Mauritius SO Sofitel

Mauritius SO Sofitel

Having been to Mauritius twice before, I thought I knew the island pretty well. Turns out, I got to experience a whole new kind of Mauritius in the South. On previous trips with my hubby, we stayed on the North Coast – and I pretty much know Grand Baie like the back of my hand. But this time the Mauritius I experienced was wilder, more idyllic, peaceful, serene and very different from the “buzzing touristy” island I’ve always know.

The South Coast of Mauritius is wild. It’s even referred to as the “Wild South” and you can tell. It’s much greener, where palm trees don’t dominate, but rather blend in with the lush vegetation. I even saw pine trees growing on the beach.

Mauritius Wild South

Mauritius Wild South

One of my favourite experiences on our Mauritius trip, and one that felt – truly Mauritian – was our little rum tasting tour and touring the Mauritius Wild South.

Since we did the Catamaran excursion ten years ago when we visited, we opted for an inland tour of Mauritius instead.

Experience Mauritius: A Visual Story

Experience Mauritius: A Visual Story

It’s been over a month since our magical holiday to the island of Mauritius, and judging by my Instagram feed, you can tell I’m still not over this paradise island. We had such an incredible stay and today, I wanted to share some of my Mauritius Travel tips and a visual story that may help you if you’re planning a visit to this East African gem.

Mauritius truly is a slice of paradise! From the beautiful beaches to the crystal clear waters with incredible sea life. Then there’s the five-star service (throughout the island), the flowing cocktails and of course, the fantastic weather.

But the one true thing that makes Mauritius so incredibly special, is it’s warm and friendly people who welcome you into their little corner of paradise – if only for a few days!

24 Hours in Prague; What To Do, See, Eat and My Travel Tips

24 Hours in Prague; What To Do, See, Eat and My Travel Tips

I love reading 24 hour city guides. I like to see what others would get up to if they had only 24 hours, because I think it highlights their best parts of a city.

Although my recent visit to Prague was for 3 days, bear in mind that this was a business trip, so a lot of the time our schedule was packed with interviews, launches and store visits. But, I did manage to experience a full day of exploring before jetting back to SA – as well a few sights sneaked in between the agenda.

If you’re planning a trip to the kingdom of Bohemia, then here’s a few of my travel tips…

Come Walk With Me Through Old Town Prague

I’ve just returned from T-H-E most amazing, 3 day trip in beautiful Prague and can’t get over the beauty and charm of this magical, fairy tale like city of contrasts.

In the coming weeks, I’ll have more content on the fashion show; with an insight into what you can expect to see from Bata (exciting things to come), as well more travel content,  but for today, I wanted to take you along, on a walk through Old Town Prague with me…

Whenever I travel, the journey is half the fun! Whether it’s an overseas getaway to Europe, a quick flight to Durbs or a weekend roadtrip closer to home, I just love the whole experience of travel. The other thing I love is luggage! Smart, stylish luggage that not only gets your trip off to a good start, but makes the whole process of travel more seamless.

Do It In Winter: Take a Trip Up Sani Pass

Do It In Winter: Take a Trip Up Sani Pass

I’m Throwing back this Thursday to our 2013 trip up Sani Pass in Lesotho. I’ve been thinking about this trip so much lately, and I really want to do it again! This time in winter! When we went, we went around March and it was lovely, but I remember thinking that it would be even more amazing in winter! All snuggled up in the cold with nothing but a blazing fire to keep you warm and beautiful surroundings. Oh, and not forgetting the decadently wicked Hot Chocolate with a shot of Kahlua to keep warm from the inside – at The Highest Pub In Africa!

How amazing a little trip to the Med would be! I miss those blue waters so much and would give anything to go back this summer! Well, by “this summer” I mean in July, when it’s summer there and winter here. And what better way to travel around the Mediterranean, or anywhere really, than with my favourite travel companion TUMI luggage?
