Best hotel to stay in?

Wow, this is a hard one, so many. I would say Mukul Resort in Nicaragua, we had our own villa and pool - but the service was just another level!

Ideal travel companion?

My boyfriend! But if he’s not around… my travel buddy has to love exploring and visiting historical places. I don’t need someone who’s all about the sunbathing. They need to enjoy food and be pretty good with a camera!

Ideal city break destination?

Two hard to say one… I love visiting Barcelona, Paris and New York - they’re the perfect City breaks!

Best restaurant:

I am obsessed with Japanese and the best restaurant that served this, was Hakkasan (NEW YORK).

Favourite bar:

I really LOVE the speakeasy bars…

Next year I will visit….

Haven’t got to next year yet, but I am sure it’ll be busy! But this year is looking pretty good... Mauritius, Seychelles, Maldives, Berlin, Mexico, Greece, Norway

Best beach?

I lived in Bermuda for 2 years… and If I am being honest, the best beaches are there! There is one called Long Beach, and it will forever be etched in my memory as my fav! 

Go to sunglasses?

Obsessed with Sun buddies, a scandinavian brand! 

Beauty essentials?

I am very simple when it comes to cosmetics! I use a liz earle face wash and moisturiser. I can’t live without my mac under eye cover up and hoola bronzer from Benefit! 

Soundtrack of your holiday?

INTRO - by The XX

Light packer or over packer? 

I like to think I am a light packer, but I am definitely not. I take far too much and I always buy when I am aboard - so I end up being overweight! My Juliet Dunn dresses I adore, obsessed with my manebi and aloha shoes.

Sea or pool?

Sea / beach for me, although I do love a silky pool swim after a beach day! 

Most repeated holiday phrase?

“I don’t want to go home…shall we change our flight?”

Best holiday read?

I am a total bookworm when on holiday. I get through one every other day! The most recent one I LOVED was the tattooist of auschwitz. Cried my eyes out!  

What's in your hand luggage?

Ear plugs, eye mask, hand gel, socks, herbal nytol tablets, change of outfit, (for arrival), berocca tablets, camera equipment.. 

Holiday nightmare?

Rain and getting sick! 

Favourite view?

Amalfi coast! Those are my favourite views of all time.
