It’s 92 degrees today in Germany (33 in Celsius) which believe it or not is hotter than when I was in Bali! I’m sharing my scuba diving adventures today on the blog and more than once this afternoon I wished I was back underwater with this adorable turtle! 🌊🐢🇲🇨 #padangbai #scubadiving #bali
An absolutely wonderful afternoon at my first Royal Ascot! 👒🐎👛 Wonderful weather, countless bottles of rosé, a few horse races, and too many laughs to count - can’t wait to do it again next year! #royalascot #horseracing
Off to the races, literally! 👒🐎👛 We are on our way to Royal Ascot and I’m so excited to see the horses, the royals, and tons of friends plus I’m wearing my very first formal hat! Check out Instastories for more!
Easily the highlight of my week. 👯♀️ Haven’t seen my best friend in over a year and she planned a stop over between Beijing and Paris just so we could catch up - and neither delayed flights nor lost luggage could deter our reunion. The only sad thing? It was too short! Thanks for the great time @kittylicht!
I may have cooked this evening but I’m still thinking of last night’s terrific dinner 👏🏻💞 So glad @bumble_uk invited me to their wonderful Beauty Bizz Dinner as part of @bumblebizz. Three delicious courses, refreshing cocktails, delightful conversation, an excellent keynote speaker (@wendyrowe), and an intimate round table made for a terrific evening! (And this Butterfly Flutterby of iced passion fruit parfait and pistachio meringue was even better than it looked!)
Back in a very dreary London and really wishing I was some place warm ... Kelingking Beach in Bali would fill that requirement quite well. #throwback Check out my review of all of the Nusa Penida beaches now live on Sparkles and Shoes!
Berlin, it wasn’t a long trip but it was certainly a good one ✈️🇩🇪 My business meetings went very well and I was even able to check out a new neighborhood - plus I’m a sucker for a rooftop sunset with a cocktail in hand, thanks for being a great tour guide @maxlberlin! #klunkerkranich #neukolln #berlin #worktrip
A bit too dark and a bit blurry but a sign of a great night! 🎼 🇬🇧 Head to Sparkles and Shoes to read all about my weekend seeing @spicegirls and @lionking on the West End! #spicegirls #weekendrecap #wembleystadium #spiceworld
Such a fun Sunday exploring London including my first trip to the British Museum, checking out the Rosetta Stone, Egyptian sarcophagus, and this grand hall with its stunning ceiling! 🎨🇬🇧 #britishmusuem #igarchitecture #sundayfunday
Never one to miss a good photo opp 🌸 Even if this London Summer weather leaves a bit to be desired at least Soho is covered in flowers! #bringonsummer #ootd
It’s been raining and dreary all week but the sun came out just in time for the weekend to start! 👏🏻🇬🇧 #stpancras #kingscross #londonblogger #tgif
It’s a rainy, dreary day in London but this little one is making it better. 🐶 @roccothegiant
Insider Tip: I will prioritize invites that include “rooftop cocktails” in the discription 🥂 #bollinger #rooftopcocktails #hamyardhotel #mylondonlife
Oh hello Monday! 🙋🏻♀️ I will be in London all week and that means back to normalcy including five new blog posts this week! Today? An update on my favorite @shopcupcakesandcashmere leather jacket - still a favorite more than three years after I bought it! Head to the blog, link in profile, to read more about it! #trafalgarsquare #ootd #londonblogger
I’ve lived in London for more than year now but still take photos of famous sites when I pass by? Why, just because. 👑 This weekend was the celebration of the Queen’s birthday even though it’s actually in April. Why? In 1748 King George wanted to have a birthday celebration but because he was born in November and the UK weather is bad then he declared it to be the second Saturday in June. And every monarch since has also celebrated on this day - can I have two birthdays? #buckinghampalace #queensbirthday #troopingthecolour
I’m actually in London for the next two weeks and so pleased about it! 👏🏻🇬🇧 Excited to get back into a routine with consistent gym classes, date nights, and get to togethers with friends! But today’s mission? Find a hat for #RoyalAscot in a few weeks! 🐎 Stay tuned to my stories for more but until then check out this look on the blog or shop it with @liketoknow.it #liketkit http://liketk.it/2Cp0m
And on my 27th trip to Stuttgart, I finally made it to this gorgeous library. 📚 I needed to get some work done in between meetings and it sounded a lot more appealing than a hotel room, I don’t know why I didn’t come sooner! #stadtbibliothek #stuttgart #germany
I’m all packed and in 12 hours I’ll be on a plane and off on my next adventure but until then head to the blog to read about my visit to the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud during my trip to Bali 🐒 #monkeyforest #ubud #bali #travelblogger
London, the fact it’s still light at 9pm makes me really happy as do walks around my neighborhood. Almost makes up for your 3:45pm Winter sunsets... almost. 🇬🇧 #townhouses #islington #mylondonlife
Twirling with a big grin on my face because the weekend has arrived! 💙 With Monday being a bank holiday in England and Thursday a holiday in Germany that meant no work travel for me this week. It was nice to get back into a routine and there are a handful of new posts on Sparkles and Shoes including one featuring this beautiful @rydaleclothing jacket. Head to the blog, link in profile, to see more! #rydale #ootd #ad
It’s my first week of the year not on an airplane but that doesn’t mean I’m not thinking about travel! ✈️ I’m off to Germany again on Tuesday but until then head to the blog, link in profile, to read about my day trip to the White Cliffs of Dover! 🏴🏔 #cliffsofdover #kent #england
What a weird Wednesday! Today was full of ups and downs - good news, bad news, okay news, and I capped it off with a workout that felt like absolutely rubbish. Though at the end of class a girl asked if I used to be a professional rower - so hey, you win some, you loose some, and tomorrow is a new day! 💪🏼
It was such a gorgeous weekend in London and I’m so glad Spring finally arrived! 🇬🇧
The best Bank holiday weekend with one of my favorite humans. 🇺🇸✈️🇬🇧 Kev, thanks for coming to visit me in London and I’m glad you enjoyed seeing my new home turf. I’m lucky to have such a great little brother even though it’s been over a decade since I was the tall one.
Kicking off this bank holiday weekend the best way I know how - exploring London by bike, boat, and by foot! 👏🏻🏴 It’s been gorgeous weather and I’m so glad Kevin has been enjoying the tour of my new city! See more on Stories!
Kicking up my heels because there are so many reasons to be happy: it’s a long weekend, my brother is visiting me in London, the forecast says beautiful weather for the next few days, and we had a delicious dinner at the Sky Garden tonight! 🌴👏🏻🇬🇧#lifeisgood #bankholiday #skygarden
Fancy a glass? 🍷By popular request my post about the @copenhagenrosefestival is now live on Sparkles and Shoes! Take a look at my favorite parts of the evening and the tastiest wines - hint, this @garancewinecellars was a favorite! #linkinprofile #roseallday
A little bit sassy, a little bit sweet 💋 It’s going to be a long week but there is a bright and shiny bank holiday weekend at the end of this tunnel! 👏🏻 In other news, I’ve been living in this @bbdakota dress since I picked it up in the latest @shopbop sale and I can already tell you it’s going to be a Summer staple! #ootd #whatiwore
After five flights in five days I’m very thankful to be home ✈️🇬🇧 And with my triumphant return I’m sharing a bit more about one of my favorite places in the UK, @devere_hotels’ Tortworth Court, and my stay there last month! Head to Sparkles and Shoes, link in profile, to read all about it!
On my way back to Germany as we speak for another work trip but really wishing I could rewind 24 hours and go back to visiting castles in Copenhagen ☀️🏰🇩🇰 #exploremore
The weather this weekend was supposed to be two days of rain and instead we got two days of gorgeous susnshine. 👏🏻 Copenhagen, thanks for showing off, you were everything I remembered and more. See you again next time! 🇩🇰✈️🏰 #rosenborgcastle #copenhagen #denmark
Raising a glass to a splendid evening in a beautiful city with wonderful weather and even better company 🍷 My first rosé festival was everything I hoped it would be and then more! @copenhagenrosefestival, I’ll definitely be back next year!
Copenhagen for the weekend 🇩🇰 Fun fact about Nyhavn - the colors of the houses actually served a purpose! They were used before addresses were a thing and the color of the building indicated what it was, for example orange for bars and red for brothels! #funfact #kobenhavn
Looking at the weekend like, hi, you’re so close! 👋🏼 Check out the full look today on the blog!
Early mornings, late nights, and lots of frequent flyer miles... ✈️ Very excited Friday has finally arrived but first a full day client workshop and two more flights before Copenhagen this weekend! #frequentflyer #tgif
Serving you sass on this beautiful Tuesday. This is my last day in London for the week so just getting everything ready for an insane seven days of travel ✈️💞 Check out this full look on Sparkles and Shoes, link in profile!
Today was a MONDAY but it’s always good to find the silver linings - I hit 10,000 steps before I even got to the gym this evening and the weather is equally as gorgeous as it was yesterday! 🤗 A trip out to Kew is something everyone must do in London, especially while these gorgeous Chihuly sculptures are scattered through the grounds! #chihuly #kewgardens
I may have just signed another year lease on my flat but that doesn’t mean I still can’t look at new places ... Kew Palace would certainly do! 🏰🇬🇧 #kewgardens #richmond #london #sundayfunday
London, that was my kind of rainy day. ☀️☔️🇬🇧 So nice to be home for a weekend and to catch up with some friends - let’s do it again tomorrow, shall we?
Bringing just a tote bag on an international flight gets quite a few looks but when it’s only a day trip you don’t need much more 🤷🏻♀️ #worktrip #agencylife #stuttgart #germany
