24 HOURS IN PARIS

March 27, 2017
paris (6 of 16)

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being whisked away to Paris by French skincare brand, Darphin. Albeit a quick visit, the agenda was still nothing short than heavenly – including lots of eating, drinking, spa time and some afternoon free-time to explore the city (which just happened to have the dreamiest Spring feeling on the day we went) – not to mention a late night motorbike tour of the city! Paris is still one of my all-time favourite cities in the world; to me, it has it all. Class, sophistication, edge, vibrancy, beauty and tradition. What´s not to love?

A CORNISH ESCAPE

March 18, 2017
cornwall (85 of 91)

Believe it or not, Cornwall has been on my travel-list for donkey´s years. I mean, sometimes – real beauty and experience, can just be on your doorstep, within your very own country. It´s the same for me when it comes to Norway; there are so many things I have yet to have seen and discovered, which people are often surprised by. But I guess that´s how it often is; one tends to travel and explore foreign and new cultures first – without realising, or taking time to just appreciate what beauty your own country beholds. And my oh my, did Cornwall live up to every single expectation I ever had (and more). Which I am sure everyone else who has visited themselves, can completely vouch for…

A FESTIVE GETAWAY WITH PANDORA

December 8, 2016

Last Monday I had the pleasure of escaping to the country with PANDORA, on what was the ultimate festive and magical get-away. Being such a fan of anything Christmassy; this was the epitome of all things joyous. I mean, wreath making and gift wrapping in front of the fire with ´Love Actually` on in the background, sipping on mulled wine and feasting on mince pies in a secluded cottage set on the stunning country grounds of Berkshire… It just doesn’t get much better than this.

6 THINGS I LOVE TO DO NEW YORK

November 16, 2016
newyork-36-of-171

New York holds a special place in my heart; not only because it´s one of the most wonderful, dynamic and exciting cities in the world – its also where Sam got down on one knee and popped the question – so naturally, it´s always going to be my favourite. The city has something so raw about it – in the sense that its busy and ever-changing; yet it´s filled to the brim with deep rooted heritage and history. Every time I come back, there are so many new things to discover, from the latest restaurants and bars, hot new neighbourhood and villages, exhibitions, shops… Yet the core landmarks that set this city apart, the distinguished New Yorker´s, and that constant reminder of truly feeling alive amidst all the hustle and bustle – makes it one of a kind. Here are the things I always do every time we visit.

MY GO-TO GUIDE TO HEALTH & FITNESS IN L.A

November 11, 2016
annelibush-la-1-of-26

One of my favourite things to do when I go to L.A, and which has somewhat become the perfect ritual and remedy to beat the jet lag every time we go – is embracing the workout scene here. Wanting to be healthy in L.A is not difficult; with a juice bar on every corner, new healthy brunch shacks opening on a weekly basis, the hills to hike in, the beaches to run on, the great weather… Not to mention the majority rocking a killer bod with that effortless Cali glow. Anyways, here is my top round up of where I love to hike, which fitness classes are absolute must´s to try out, my go-to healthy eateries and juice bars. Enjoy!  Continue Reading

I love L.A, and have had some incredible times there – so I thought it was about time that I´d round up all my favourite things about the city! I only just came back from L.A the other week, and prior to going, I always do an up to date research (yes, I´m one of those with an itinerary with pages of stuff to do!); be it from reading other blogs, stalking favourite Instagram accounts, or asking local friends and acquaintances for all the insider knowledge (in other words, I never rely on Tripadvisor). Here are all my top favourites, from where I like to eat, hotels I like to stay at, best bars, what I like to see, where I like to shop… Continue Reading

COMO COCOA ISLAND | PART TWO

Nearing the end of our holiday, we were trying our best to soak up the last few days at COMO (a.k.a paradise). The thought of returning back to the hustle and bustle of London town, seemed so remote and far fetched at this stage, and I for one, was not entirely ready to leave…

COMO COCOA ISLAND | PART ONE

After 5 wonderful days staying at Conrad Rangali Island (read part one + part two here) – we were off to our next and final stop, COMO Cocoa Island. Firstly, there´s no point in even attempting to compare the two resorts, as they are both so incredibly different (and if I had to pick, I would really struggle!). But the main difference overall was the size; where Conrad is a much bigger operation and resort, with over 150 villas and 10 restaurants – COMO is a really small, boutique resort, with just under 30 villas and only one restaurant – with a real focus on a wellness oriented and holistic experience. Needless to say, I could not wait to visit, and spend our last 5 days at this beautiful resort.  Continue Reading

I´ve just come back from Greece with Olympus, who hosted the most incredible press trip to Nikki Beach in Porto Heli, located on the Greek Riviera. Over 50 international influencers and bloggers were gathered together over the weekend to celebrate the pre-launch of the new Olympus PEN E-PL8 camera (which I exclusively happen to have a small handful of for my readers to buy here, before it´s even officially launched!).

CONRAD MALDIVES | PART TWO

Turquoise ocean as clear as crystal, magical burning sunsets, evening cocktails and hourly snorkelling trips, seems very far away at the moment (particularly now that we´ve entered a cool and crisp autumn in London). However remote and distant it might seem, the memories we made over the course of 5 days staying at the beautiful resort, Conrad, will stay with us forever. Dive on into the second half of our stay (check out the first part here) – when we checked into one of their iconic water villas…

CONRAD MALDIVES | PART ONE

September 28, 2016
maldives-51

We definitely discussed the Maldives as a potential option when we started planning our honeymoon 2-3 years ago, but in the end we decided on something more adventurous; beach as well as city (we did Sydney – Fiji – Hong Kong). At the time, it was exactly what we wanted, the type of holiday we craved. But fast forward to September 2016, and we were literally desperate to get somewhere quiet, tranquil, relaxing, with limited things to do such as lie on the beach and snorkel (perfect). Now both living much more busy lives with lots of travelling and a hectic work schedule, constantly glued to our smartphones and laptop – we both could not wait to get away to the Maldives, disconnect and explore pure paradise… Continue Reading

A few weeks ago, I was invited to join footwear brand EMU Australia on a mini adventure to the beautiful Paphos in Cyprus, in celebration of their new leather sandals and resort collection. Having explored so many different parts of Greece, I was excited to finally visit what is the ancient birth place of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty… (I mean, who wouldn’t!?).

New York holds a very special place in my heart. Other than it being one of the greatest cities in the world (FACT), it’s also where Sam proposed to me nearly four years ago – so needless to say, NYC will forever be one of my all-time favourites… In celebration of our two-year wedding anniversary (I still can’t believe how fast time flies by!) – we jetted off to NYC last weekend to celebrate…  Continue Reading
