Luxury Holidays Around The World

With hundreds of airlines offering tempting deals and apps like Skyscanner helping customers choose from the most affordable plane tickets, travelling the world has never been easier. From Mauritius to the Gold Coast, there are thousands of paradisiac destinations in which to holiday and this mini guide will help you get a better insight into some of the best places to travel to in style. 

Whether you like your mojitos on a hammock or lobster on a gold plate, we present you with the most extravagant ways of spending your time off.


Mauritius is an island in the Indian Ocean, around 2,000 kilometres off the African coast. Formerly a Dutch and French colony, Mauritius became property of the British at the beginning of the 19th century and it only attained independence in 1968. Mauritius has an incredibly varied fauna and flora and its tropical climate and deserted beaches with clear waters have made the island the 56th most visited destination in the world.

Visit Creole mansion Eureka for a glimpse into Mauritius’ rich colonial history. Built in the 1830s, this perfectly preserved house is a museum surrounded by gardens with mango and palm trees as well as waterfalls. The mansion has 109 doors and windows and is one of the largest houses on the island.

The Gold Coast

Located south of Brisbane in Australia’s East Coast, The Gold Coast is full of sandy beaches and hiking trails. The sixth largest city in Australia, it is a major tourist destination due to its subtropical climate. So popular, that the city will host the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Ten million tourists visit the area every year, which is not surprising when learning that the coastal region has 60 kilometres of beach and dozens of golf courses.

Elite Holiday Homes is one of the largest luxury holiday home providers in the area with multi-million dollar residencies available for rental. If you would like to add a touch of opulence to your holiday, look no further.


This Northern African country is known for its street markets and food rich in spices. Rabat is the capital and Casablanca its largest city and tourism is of high importance to the region. Exotic and affordable, Morocco ranks high in safety, and these are some of the reasons millions of Europeans visit the country every year. Its ancient cities and people’s friendliness make Morocco an electrifying experience.

Take a trip to Fez, the second largest city in the country, for a stroll around the world’s most extensive car-free city area. Even if this is not open to the public, The Royal Palace’s brass doors and surrounding carved wood alone are worth a visit.


One hundred and fifteen islands make up the Seychelles, in the Indian Ocean. Beaches and nature reserves are abundant in the area and it has become an important tourist destination since the 1970s. This honeymoon haven is relaxed and offers an exotic experience to its visitors.

Anse Lazio is one its most treasured and beautiful beaches and with clear waters and thick palm trees, it is a dream place for everyone who sets foot in it.

Faux Fur Coats For The Evening

I've always thought that there's something about faux fur which exudes effortless glamour. And as we are now officially in December (yay!), there has NEVER been a better time to invest in an evening faux fur coat. Whether it's an office Christmas party, a winter wedding or a festive night out - I find that a faux fur coat is just the thing to set your outfit off perfectly, no matter what you're wearing.

This year has been the year where I've really gone a bit overboard on faux fur. My day-to-day coat is now a black faux fur number from Boohoo, which has been a life saver, livening up my boring jeans and Uggs outfit and giving me a bit of a spring in my step for the week days. And then, if you ever visit my instagram, you'll see various other faux fur coats which have wormed their way into my wardrobe...not my fault, I promise!

Most of the faux fur coats around can easily work from day to night and back again, but some are just too pretty to wear when your grubbing about day-to-day. This polar bear-esque faux fur jacket from Topshop is a classic example. I don't really want to wear it whilst I'm running errands...it's way too nice and its FAR TOO PALE to wear on anything other than special occasions. I don't want to get anything on it, I really don't!

So below I've popped some of my favourite evening faux fur choices, for those events that you need just something a bit special for.
