Staying Chic on a 15 Hour Flight…

When flying to Sri Lanka we were in transit for 15 hours! That is a mix of flight time and waiting in airports because there was unfortunately no direct flights from Milan. We were in a similar situation last year with our flight to Costa Rica and when we finally arrived at our destination, it took me several days and a lot of strange sleeping patterns to feel normal again. So this year I decided to be prepared and make an emergency beauty plan to bring with me on the plane to feel more healthy when we arrive.

In case you have some long-haul flights scheduled this summer too I have shared it with you here – I hope it can help.

What living in Italy has taught me about style…

I have been living and working in Milan for just under two years now.  Before moving here I had done a lot of travelling (mainly around South America and Asia) and these experiences have taught me a lot about the world and who I am.  But I think by actually living in a country for a long period of time you can learn so much about the culture and way of life.

SS15 Trends and My Key Pieces to buy…

Here is Italy the weather has started to get hotter and there are sure signs that Spring is on its way. This makes me excited about the arrival of sunshine and longer days and also because it means it is time to welcome in the trends of SS15.  This year spring has seen a huge throwback to the 70’s with florals, flares, hippie dresses and retro looks and I am loving this.

As a Styling Assistant I need to make sure I am looking on trend but also need to consider my budget. I find the best way to do this is to buy key pieces from the season and use them to update my existing wardrobe.  If like me you are the same, then look below for Part 1 of my SS15 trends breakdown found on the high street for a steal! Enjoy!
