After a brief reprieve of warmer temps on Saturday, we’re back to feeling the winter chill in New York.  Perfect time to revisit my trip to Morocco and luxurious stay at the Four Season Marrakech.  The hotel had only been open for a few short months when we arrived and we were the very first […]

One of the highlights from Marrakech, Morocco was visiting Jardin Majorelle. In 1923, the french painter Jacques Majorelle fell in love with the intense light of Morocco and built himself a Moorish villa around which he designed a luxurious garden and a separate bright blue studio.  The garden was opened to the public in 1947 […]

Day three of our “no carb left behind” tour of Morocco found us at the Hotel Atlas Kasha in Agadir.  I’m not gonna lie, I thought this eco-friendly hotel was going to be the most outside my comfort zone but I ended up loving it.  When we arrived, it was only 6:30pm but completely pitch […]

While in Essaouira, Morocco we stayed at the very chic L’Heure Bleue hotel which sits just inside the walls of the medina.  The minute we walked in, the group was in love.  We all agreed that it looked exactly like we thought Casablanca was going to look but didn’t and was terrible romantic.  It also […]

I originally intended to post about my trip to Morocco in chronological order. The first oasis resort at which we stayed, while gorgeous, didn’t seem like a true reflection of the country so I’m going to start with the medina in Essaouira. I will also be putting together a “chic travelers guide to Morocco” on […]

Back from Morocco!

11 . 09 . 11

I just returned from my whirlwind week in Morocco and can’t believe all that I experienced in seven days!  It was an amazing trip and can’t wait to share the highlights soon.  One of them was definitely riding camels, actually dromedaries since they only have one hump, on the beach in Essaouira with my new friends […]

Off to Morocco!

11 . 01 . 11

I’m off to the airport to leave for my trip to Morroco.  (For those of you who subscribe, I will probably have landed in Casablanca by the time you read this.) I’m extremely excited and only mildly nervous, mostly about the withdrawal symptoms that I am going to suffer from not being able to use […]

Marrakech Moment

10 . 02 . 11

I loved this spread entitled Marrakech Moment when it was first featured in Harper’s Bazaar. Now I can use it as outfit inspiration on my upcoming trip.  I’m excited to announce that I will be visiting not only Marrakech but also Casablanca, Morocco 1-8 November.  Not sure where I am staying yet but I’m already […]

Departures had a feature on the best small hotels in Paris today and one colorful option definitely caught my eye.  The Hotel La Belle Juliette is conveniently located in the Sixth and named after Juliette Recamier, the famous salon hostess and sofa namesake. What I really love about this hotel are gorgeous colors and boiseries.  They […]

If The Beverly Hills Hotel is like Doris Day, then the Chateau Marmont is more like The Doors. Instead of shiny and happy, it’s dark and brooding and beyond cool. It was modeled after a royal chateau in the Loire Valley of France and since it opened in 1929, it has been the hot spot […]

One of the highlights of my time in LA was brunch with Christian of Maison21 and Becca of Rebecca June Interior Design at The Polo Lounge in The Beverly Hills Hotel. As you can see from my photos, the weather was gorgeous and we were so happy to have a fabulous table outside. On our […]

As I’ve mentioned a million times, I had an amazing time in LA! I didn’t think anything could top my trip to Paris but LA came very close! Paris was all about the architecture and beauty of the city while LA was all about the people and design stores. I definitely could not have experienced […]

I Love LA!

03 . 21 . 10

Just a quick post to let you all know that I’m having a fabulous time in LA! The weather is wonderful, the people are so friendly and down to earth, and the shopping is to die for! I’ve been to so many amazing places and I still have two more days left! The photo above […]

Ready for Take Off!

03 . 18 . 10

I have so many things to take care of before I leave for LA in the morning that I’ve decided to sign off early. I want to thank everyone who left comments and emailed me with the great suggestions for places to go and things to do! I also really appreciate all the great advice […]

Planning for LA

03 . 15 . 10

I had a few readers ask if I was going to post my outfits for LA like I did for my trip to Paris and since I’m still not exactly sure what I should be wearing, I start planning them out! These outfits are my first run through of options that I think will work. […]

H in HOLLYWOOD

03 . 02 . 10

I am in need of some sunshine and warm weather so I’ve booked a trip to Los Angeles. I can’t wait to luxuriate by the pool, shop and hang out with my West Coast friend Maison21. (Just wish I was going to look as good as this girl but oh well.) I will be in […]

Yes Please!

The clock hasn’t even struck 2010 yet and I’m already thinking about where I want to go in the new year. I just ran across photos of the Uxua Casa Hotel in Brazil that are quickly pushing it to the top of the list. The property was developed by Wilbert Das, the creative director of […]
