To say last week was the best week of my life would be a total understatement. Last week was my Yacht Week sailing the south route of Croatia and it was nothing short of unbelievable. Croatia is so beautiful; the weather was amazing; the people were so much fun & the Yacht Week parties were out of this world! It’s finally taken me 4 days to pull myself together & get back to the real world…
Our skipper was a bit of a legend – along with most of the Yacht Week crew
Sailing alongside 60 yachts was so cool – on our last day there was a regatta where we all dressed up & got some good sailing in
The parties were wild – in a ruined building; an ancient fort; a beach bar in a secluded bay; overlooking an olympic-sized swimming pool – every night was epic
4th July just so happened to fall on the Wednesday & everyone went mental. It was definitely my favorite day – they held the sickest party on the crew boat…
Continuing with a crazy party in Hvar…
& finishing in a club on its own private island
The music throughout the week was supplied by FDVM who’ve shared the decks with the likes of Steve Aoki & Axwell and I’m pretty sure I speak for everyone when I say they killed it
After meeting some amazing people from all over the globe – I am so excited to do Yacht Week all over again!!!
Check out what I’m thinking for New Years in the BVIs…
It will seriously be the best week of your life

Housed in an old factory on the Brooklyn waterfront, the Wythe Hotel has been restored to include its original industrial features whilst incorporating luxe hospitality elements. The hotel epitomises the boom of its local neighbourhood in becoming one of the ‘hippest’ boroughs in NYC. Heated concrete floors & two-way bathroom mirrors capturing the Manhattan skyline all add to the cool/historic vibe of this hotel.
The adjacent building has been decorated with vintage Brooklyn logos by Steve Powers to give non-view rooms a piece of art to look onto.
The hotel features ‘Band Rooms’, located on the 6th floor (conveniently next to the bar) containing sets of twin bunk beds & floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing views of the Manhattan skyline & Brooklyn rooftops. These rooms were designed on the recommendation of the creators behind the Brooklyn Bowl music venue & are meat for traveling bands needing a place to stay.
