  • Destination Looks - April

    In April, there's only one destination to visit and that's California.
    Thanks to the wonderful extravaganza that is Coachella festival, every fashion and music fan will be jetting over to the States and heading to Palm Springs for two fun-filled weekends in the sunshine.

    However, it's a long flight to get to the West Coast of the US and so in our opinion, it's worth checking out some of the other locations California has to offer; particularly ones with beaches, as you won't find any oceans in Palm Springs desert!
    If you are flying in and out of LA, Venice Beach is perfect for those wanting to experience a real taste of the vibrant, local lifestyle, whilst enjoying a gorgeous sandy beach that stretches for over three miles. Alternatively, Malibu is a haven for any water-sports fan and comes with a reputation for some of the best waves on the Californian coast.
    To make packing for your trip that little bit easier, we've already hand-picked some outfits that suit the style of the destinations you may choose to visit.

  • What's In My Travel Tote ft. Louise Roe!



    1. Melissa has released a debut handbag collection for SS15, which will you be rocking on the beach this year?

    The Zig zag pouch - it’s the perfect accessory for that beachy vibe but I’ll be taking it to music festivals and bbq’s too!

    2. What Sun-seeking destinations can you look forward to?

    I’m off to a little island off of Singapore to film a t.v. show soon and I cannot wait to live on the beach!

    3. In case you lose your luggage at the airport, what emergency items do you make sure are packed in your travel holdall?

    I’ve learned the hard way to always pack the essentials in your hand luggage, so – a black bikini (this color looks great on your first day when you’re not tanned yet), this Summer I’m wearing the Martinique Bandeau and pairing it with the Jessica cover up in Navy. Big shades from Anine Bing, Lancome Imanance Tinted Moisturizer with SPF so my skin is still protected; and a good book - right now it’s The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.

    4. Post-flight beauty – how do you refresh your skin after a long flight?

    The failsafe trick - splash some cold water to awaken the skin and then use a gentle exfoliator (I love Kate Somerville’s) to scrub away all the "yuck" from travelling. If I have time, I’ll throw on Eve Lom’s Moisture Mask while I unpack – a good way to multi task! And then apply a thick cream to sleep in, like Sisley’s.

    5. What’s on your wish list from the Melissa Odabash SS15 Collection?

    The Melissa dress in yellow knit looks very sexy – I have known Meli for 10 years and she knows how to make a woman feel sexy! I also love the new sporty vibe of her designs like the Bali bikini.

    6. Hotspots for your upcoming trip to Singapore?

    I have no idea yet, all to be discovered! But I did visit Bali last year and can highly recommend morning coffee and book browsing at Drifter, learning to surf on Seminyak beach, Potato Head for dinner at sunset and Favela for late night cocktails and dancing!

    Louise released her debut style guide 'Front Roe: How to Be the Leading Lady in Your Own Life' earlier this month, which is now available to purchase from Amazon; From staple wardrobe pieces, perfume etiquette and swimwear TLC, the guide offers an answer to the most common fashion queries.
