Issue 274: Ed’s Letter

Words By

We’ve made it through January! For the third issue of the year, we decided that we were going to dream a little. The days are still long, cold and dark, so it’s the perfect time to start planning for the year ahead and thinking about the locations you would like to visit in 2024.

I found myself sitting down with my husband this past weekend, drawing out all the school holidays and thinking about when would be possible to get myself away from the office. It’s the first year I’ve done that with such meticulous attention and it was so helpful to carve out time away, budget accordingly and decide upon the destinations we’re hoping to visit. So what better way to help you do just that than to partner with one of my absolute favourite websites that handpicks destinations better than anywhere else, and that is Mr & Mrs Smith.

I have used the website for over 15 years and come to rely on it for its impeccable selection. I can honestly say I have never been disappointed by a Mr & Mrs Smith-approved hotel. I’m really proud that we’re working in partnership with them to inform you about where to stay in 2024 and feel there’s a real synergy between them and us – they have made it their mission to curate the best holiday destinations in the world, while we have made ours to curate the ultimate everlasting wardrobe.

Throughout the issue, you’ll find reviews of the best spa breaks, family-friendly adventures and the top 10 destinations to visit this year. I also asked Petro if she would collate a Cape Town city guide, partly because it’s somewhere I will be travelling to this year. Petro is from South Africa and she knows the city better than anyone else, so you can really trust her advice. Alongside all of the recommendations in this issue, you’ll find the lifestyle elements to go with your holiday – from helpful styling tips for flying to outfits to match your destination. Finally, there’s a chance to win a weekend getaway in magical Cornwall.

I hope you’ll earmark this issue for when you come to booking your holiday this year – we really believe we’ve put together the ultimate curation for you.
