It’s style over stress when it comes to holidaying with the help of Holiday Extras

by LOUISE HOOTON I recently decided to book a cheeky, last minute holiday to take advantage of Dubai’s winter sun (more on Dubai coming in a later post) and in doing so, came across a rather nifty service which I thought you, my fellow London Luxers, might quite like. And that service is Holiday Extras. […]

A taste of paradise on Kuramathi Island, The Maldives

by LOUISE HOOTON I had always wanted to visit the Maldives. With its rather mind-blowing collection of 1,000 plus small, secluded islands; temperatures that rarely dip below 27 degrees Celsius; seafood in abundance; and its crystal blue waters, it’s hard to imagine why any beach-loving tourist wouldn’t want to visit.

And I was of course, beyond excited at the prospect of a very spur of the […]

TLL hits the beach!

by ALI BLACKMAN So, TheLondonLuxe goes on tour this week, leaving our glorious capital in search of sun (ahem), sand and relaxation.  Cornwall bound, myself and Mr B jumped in the car, rammed to the brim with clothing and footwear for every possible weather condition (this is still the UK after all) to enjoy a […]
