Topiary Gardens are my secret passion.

Throughout my travels, I look for local topiary gardens to visit. A topiary is a living art piece, and their fantastical shapes, in an open landscape, can feel magical and other-worldly.

Today, I thought that we would highlight a few of these one-of-a-kind gardens.

Real Moroccan Decor – A House Party in Marrakesh

May 30, 2017 • By

I love Moroccan decor – the colors, textures and patterns. So Morocco has been a dream destination for a long time. This year I finally decided to plan a trip with friends to immerse myself in Moroccan design and shop the souks of Marrakesh.

If you read regularly, you’ll know my favorite kind of getaway is a house party – a modern riff on the traditional country house holiday – where friends gather to eat, drink, talk, relax and explore.

This trip would be a Moroccan house party in a 16th-century riad with seven amazing, creative friends.READ MORE

5 Things You Must Do in Kyoto, Japan

April 12, 2017 • By

So you’re traveling in Asia and wondering what to do in Kyoto, Japan…

My advice? Settle into this beautiful and historic Japanese city for a few days.  Mr. H and I just returned from Japan, and Kyoto was the highlight of our entire Asian trip.

The people are warm and friendly. The food is diverse and delicious. Kyoto retains much of its pre-World War II architecture and character and makes a great home base for meaningful side trips.
