ANTIGUA - Galley Bay Resort

30.11.12

 

Ahhhhhhh....... Galley Bay Resort is one of my happy places.  Located on the north-west end of the island, just a few minutes drive to St Johns, this hotel is very secluded and shares a long sandy beach with Giorgio Armani's villa at the north end (yup, that's it there in the first pic).  It's not unusual to see him jogging along the beach, body guards in tow.

$750 / night +














THANKS, PEOPLE!

People Magazine features Jamie Chung in a BROSE open back sequin dress from Fall 11. 
It's the dress that keeps on giving.











TWINKLE TOES


 
Beryl studded oxfords | ZARA ankle zip jeans

I have finally worn in my studded oxfords that I bought in Paris at Beryl for only €109.  They're a little dirty because I wore them on my morning dog walk.  I  can't stop wearing them.  Everywhere.













PARIS - St Germain Apartment

23.11.12


This is the studio apartment where I lived when I was a fashion design student in Paris.  What don't I love about it?   Nostalgia aside, the location couldn't be better - it is in the heart of the 6th district of St-Germain-des-Prés, around the corner from my favourite cafe Le Bar du Marché, and it is a 5 minute walk to the Seine on the opposite side of the Louvre.  The apartment is small but efficient with vaulted ceilings that are typical of the area.  And the price isn't too hard on the wallet, either.  I might just have to go back there soon.

PORTUGAL - Dianamar Hotel, Albufeira

 

A last-minute trip to Albufeira, Portugal wound up knocking our socks off.  The coast and town are so charming, and because it's in the south facing the Medterranean sea, the water was not only beautiful but also swimable.  We found this cute little hotel, the Dianamar, perched up on the hillside overlooking Fisherman's Beach with only a dozen or so rooms and a roof top terrace that is so close to the sea, you feel like you can dive right into it.

50 - 75 / night (high season)

ST LUCIA - Rendez Vous Hotel

22.11.12

 

We spontaneously decided to take a trip to the Carribbean and found this boutique hotel that is tucked away on the island's longest beach (which isn't saying much, they're all kinda short).  The timing was perfect - we were lucky to have been guests just after a major renovation, and to secure a cottage right on the beach.  Non-married couples beware - this is a honeymoon hot spot, which we learned the hard way....

$300+ / night

MYKONOS - The Vencia Hotel

Definitely the most amazing yet affordable hotel in Mykonos is the Vencia. Perched up high on the hill overlooking the Old Port, this hotel has some of the most stunning views of Mykonos Town. By fluke we ended up staying in the honeymoon suite (this is waaaayyy pre engagement), here are some shots of those wicked views.... plus of this most magical island.

€250+/ night
 

 
 

 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

PARIS - Pompidou Village Apartment


When I go to Paris, I only stay in apartments. Here is one of my favourites. It's in the Marais, which is where you neeeeeed to stay. Unless you're staying in the 6th (St Germain) which is also a must.  But this one is also around the corner from the Centre Pompidou - I always visit it every time I am in Paris.

€85 - €125 / night
