Travelling The World And Other Dreams!

One of the side effects of travel is that you end up wanting — no, yearning — to travel even more. I only just got back from London, Berlin, and Amsterdam… And yet, somehow, it’s not enough. It’s like contracting a fever that never goes away.

Brazil, Sweden, Japan, Morocco, Greece, Capri, the Amalfi Coast, Bali, Tulum, Jamaica, the Bahamas, India… The list just goes on and on, with no end in sight.

There’s just something so miraculous about travelling, with its proliferation of brand new sights, smells, and sounds, that blows me away. That’s why travelling the world — and going to new places, instead of simply visiting my old favourites — is so high on my list of goals.

We went to Santorini and Mykonos to celebrate my 30th birthday last year, and it was pure magic. Next time I go back, in addition to Santorini, I’d love to do more island-hopping. Paros and Antiparos, Ios and Naxos… There is so much to see, all of it beautiful in its own unique way.


I’ve wanted to visit Rio De Janeiro, in Brazil, for ages, and somehow it keeps popping up into my frame of reference. From the enormous statue of Jesus The Redeemer to its beaches packed with bodies and teeny-tiny swimsuits, there is so much I want to see and do!


The Amalfi Coast is the place dreams are made of. Built along the side of a hill, and famed for its production of limoncello, this stretch of coastline in Southern Italy is known for its azure sea and absolute beauty. Things to do? Rent a speedboat and hoon around in a striped bikini. Perfection.

Of course, while rocking your retro-inspired two-piece, staying hairfree and lovely is a priority. All summer long, I’ve been using Skintimate® Signature Scents® Moisturizing Shave Gels in Mandarin Burst for a zesty kickstart to my day!
