A Luxury Girl's Weekend in Rome, Italy.

Rome is such a magical city, and with it being five years since we had last been there in 2014, Jasiminne and I figured it was time to return! It had also been over a year since Jasiminne and I last had a girl's trip, so we were determined to explore Rome's bars, trendy neighbourhoods, shops, and of course a good dose of the history and sights! We stayed at the most beautiful apartment right opposite the Spanish Steps which is part of The Hideaways Club, and spent a long weekend exploring everything the city had to offer.

Experiencing The Hideaways Club Luxury Spanish Steps Apartment.

As part of my partnership with The Hideaways Club, I recently had the opportunity to check out one of their dreamy holiday properties for myself, and oh my gosh it was so incredible I've been so excited to tell you all about it! Whether you're already a member of The Hideaways Club or thinking of joining, this is a comprehensive review of their Spanish Steps apartment in Rome, Italy, and how we found staying in a serviced apartment that was essentially a home-from-home, compared to staying in a hotel. TL;DR: It was amazing.

Hotel Review: 5 Days at Hillside Beach Club, Turkey.

Recently I spent five days at the luxury five-star Hillside Beach Club in Fethiye, Turkey, as part of their Global Influencer Meet-up. Every year they hold the meet-up with influencers from key markets all over the world, and this year I was incredibly lucky to be one of them. I had THE BEST time ever over my five days there, and have so much to tell you all about and so many photos to share of the beautiful resort! So, grab a cuppa (or cocktail!) and settle down, this is a big one...

A Wild Three-Days in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I actually can't believe this is my last USA Roadtrip post! I got back from my trip nearly two months ago now, but what with it being a 2.5 week trip I had SO MUCH to share with you all and it's taken me forever to go through my thousands of photos. We finished our huge Chicago to New Orleans roadtrip (we drove from Chicago, to St Louis, Nashville, Memphis, Mississippi) guessed it...New Orleans! NOLA was a total dream. It was exactly how I remembered it, and it was exactly how I had imagined it in my head. You know when you've been somewhere as a child and you think "was it really like that?!" well it was, and this time going as an adult was so much better!

In case you didn't already know, we actually built our entire trip around going to the Tennessee Williams Literary Festival. My friend Clare and I are both literature buffs, and being fans of Tennessee Williams' plays, we had been planning to sign up for the festival and use it as a great excuse to create an epic trip! The trip took over a year to plan and although we spent a fair amount of our time in NOLA at various talks and workshops with the festival, we still saw and did loads outside of the festival as well! Now, in case you haven't realised...this post is going to be HUGE. It's going to be long. With a lot of photos. So grab a cuppa and settle down...

10 Tips for Packing Hand-Luggage Only for a Weekend Trip.

I'm a notorious over-packer when I have a large luggage allowance...but when I'm restricted to carry on only, I'm pretty great at planning outfits to make the most of the small weight and space. Recently American Tourister got in touch and asked me to test out their very stylish new Wavebreaker cabin case (gifted), which has the most gorgeous velvet detailing, so I thought it was time to put it to the test with my recent trip to Turkey, and tell you all how I travel with just hand-luggage!
