W Scottsdale: Perfect Girls Getaway

Hello Darlings, At the first sight of snow the suitcases were packed and we were on our merry way seeking sunshine. After a direct 5 hour flight with WestJet we landed in Phoenix airport where the sun was shinning and the car was awaiting for us. After a 15 minute drive, we were at the beautiful W Scottsdale — our home for the next 4 days. With a vibrant art scene, fabulous golf courses and magnificent resorts Scottsdale was described by New York Times as a “desert version of Miami’s South Beach.” And rightfully so! It is no wonder that within the…

Hello Darlings, With December fast approaching and holiday vacations are hopefully weeks away, it’s time to start planning your resort wear.

That is exactly how I learned to not only be comfortable when travelling alone but actually enjoying it! I did…

W South Beach: Mind, Body & Spirit

Hello Darlings, Like traveling to any metropolitan city the anticipation of fabulous dinners and swanky soirees calls for an advance packing of the suitcases. Unlike packing for a laid back Caribbean getaway, a big city calls for big plans and therefore takes a girl some serious thought in the wardrobe department. South Beach is famously known as the sunshine playground for adults. In the same manner as any fashion capital, Miami in its own right has an entirely unique fashion scene. Nothing is too much or off limits and the brighter and louder, the better! In some ways, Miami is a lot like Vegas…
