The act of travelling from one place to another; a trip

A distance to be travelled or time required to do a trip

My first destination piece on Six Senses Samui, was so well received, I thought why not take it a step further? Rather than just cover one hotel or resort… why not get really big for my boots and cover a whole area?

Something has been on my mind of late and I just can’t stop thinking about it, Europe; Italy to be precise.

Where I got married. Where my Mum is. Where I spent my honeymoon. And where, I feel, I’ve left a tiny little piece of my heart.

I cannot wait to go back.  Despite the untimely and extremely welcome early Spring in NYC, I still yearn for a bit of Europe. So this evening, in my mind, and with my words, I’m off to Italy and I’m taking you with me.

I’m so thrilled to be back. I’m sorry for my leave of absence. I’ve joined the NYC workforce, and it’s not for the faint hearted I can tell you. I don’t think the eight hour work day exists here, nor the ten. Twelve, thirteen, fourteen, now that’s a normal workday.

Not only am I utterly thrilled to be re – united with Appleketchup, I’m uber thrilled to have found out recently that one of the collections of Florence Broadhurst’s Signature Prints  is now available in NYC, with thanks to Kate Spade.

The line now available; is the aptly named, Brooklyn Brownstone Collection, (why thank you very much, I do live in a Brooklyn Brownstone). And one of the most iconic of the Signature Prints designs, the Japanese Floral is popping up everywhere. It has made me feel utterly at home and I really feel like I’m beginning to belong here now that a little bit of Sydney is here too!!

Welcome Florence. I do hope I’ll be pasting you across walls in many a Brooklyn Brownstone over the coming months!
