An Asian Adventure…

beijing

A family holiday of endless days sunbathing in the Mediterranean Sea is my idea of hell (who wants to sunbathe and get pigmentation anyway?). So our family holiday is about exploring a different country every year, and this year we went to China.

We started our trip with a few nights in the buzzy city of Hong Kong – staying at the fabulous Shangri-La Hotel , which is based at the Pacific Place shopping mall, and as you know Hong Kong and shopping go together! I also did a few store visits as we work with the luxury stores Joyce, I always want to check out on my Rodial babies wherever I am!

Next stop was Bejing. I was shocked to discover that when in China you are not allowed access to most western social media sites, including Instagram, Snapchat and even Google! This was really frustrating as I really wanted to keep up with all my social media accounts and share my trip with you guys but I managed to get on the sites via 3G and at least posted a few videos and pictures from my trip. I always stay in Hotels with a gym and ended up working out most days which was really needed as I am obsessed with Chinese food and love to try everything!

I’m excited to return to London, fully refreshed and ready for the hectic fall season.

Fashion month is only a couple of weeks away now – cannot wait to return to New York for fashion week, plus some super exciting projects whilst I’m there.

After a long few weeks of travelling and preparing for the busy fall season, I jetted back to Greece to spend time on the beautiful island of Mytilene. My entire family were there so it was great to spend time with them all.

I loved catching up with my sister and enjoying the amazing Greek freddos !

My top summer items; my favourite Karen Walker sunglasses, Goyard bag, Topshop (always great for cute jeans) and Ivy Park bodysuit.
