Summer ’16 – Celeb Hotspots!

There are certain places we feel we know. The best restaurants, the most beautiful beaches – certainly the most luxurious hotels. We haven’t necessarily been; our only experience with these places is the portrayal of them in the media, where they are referred to time and time again because of their popularity with celebrities.

And, look – we don’t blame you for wanting to live like them. We really don’t. So much so, we’ve decided to help you do it. In fact, Instagram fomo is now a thing of the past… Want to know where this Summers’ most infamous spots were and who you can expect to see there? Keep reading…

The Hamptons


The popularity of this New York retreat is endless. Just as Sex and the City and Gossip Girl showed us, it’s packed with the most glamorous of parties (does anyone not remember Serena in that dress at the White Party, or Nate cavorting with a very youthful Liz Hurley?).
We can dream. But let us tell you, it’s exactly like you see in the pictures. We had the most amazing time in The Hamptons last month as guests at the Revolve House and, as per instructed, partied the night away in style.

Side note: If you want to see more of our time in The Hamptons with Revolve,

Where to stay:

There are a few Inns and B&B’s in The Hamptons, but as a warning, you’re bank account might feel this one. Chances are, if you have friends in NYC, the likelihood of them having connections in The Hamptons is fairly high. It’s worth a shot – besides, when it comes to a hotspot like The Hamptons, the more the merrier.

However, if all else fails, we recommend the Capri Inn, Southampton.

Ibiza has always been in vogue. It’s basically everything you could wish for in a vacation: sun, sea, sand and the most epic parties. The north of the island is slightly more picturesque with dramatic coastlines and stunning scenery, and is way ‘calmer’ in the way of nightlife.
But, if you’re willing to take it a step further, take a boat out to Formentera, the Island’s stunning, Caribbean-esque sister. When we say Caribbean, we mean it. The seas could be mistaken for Bora-Bora, and the sand could have been sourced off the coast of Jamaica. We must warn you; other than a few banging beach clubs (restaurants), there isn’t much to do. This is a place to relax, to detox and prepare/recover from endless partying back on Ibiza. Obviously.

Or, for the ease of it, your yacht.

This Greek Island is also a party fave. Funny how all these celebs like a bit of music to go alongside their sandy feet and margaritas… We don’t know if you checked out our guide to the island , but this place is insane. The bluest of skies and the whitest of buildings – every turn you take brings with it a new Instagrammable/ publishable photo op. The food is amazing – head to Spilia for the freshest fish you can imagine, and some top-notch celeb spotting. The restaurant is ‘rustic’, but only enough to make you feel as if you could be at the most unknown place in the world. Until you bump in to Olivia Palermo, that is…

Where to stay:

Taxis are impossible, so for ease and convenience we recommend a villa or hotel in, or near the town. Everything you’ll want to do is there. But there are some awesome hotels, such as the Santa Marina, which are slightly further out but well, well worth it.

St Barths


This island is one hell of a stunner. Seriously – it’s one of our favorite places in the world. Close enough to the States to get a good deal of celeb-enhanced memories, it has everything you would want for a summer holiday. A hell of a lot of sun. A stupid amount of sand (in a good way). And the best quality of sea. There is a distinctly French atmosphere here too, which means lots of class and elegance – just another thing to make you want to go and soak up those pristine rays.

Where to stay:

The Eden Roc, obviously. We hear it’s a great place to be over New Year too, wink wink.

Hawaii has been on everyones bucket list forever and ever, so it’s no surprise it made it to our Celeb Hotspot List. Hawaii is known for its volcanic landscape, crystal clear waters, and lush palm greenery – traits all of our favorite tropical destinations have in common. But, Hawaii is a special one, for sure – and as it turns out, we’re not the only ones that think so…

Turks and Caicos

Turks and Caicos is probably breaking news to a lot of people at the moment. Obviously this lagoon paradise hasn’t just sprung up over night, but with the likes of Kylie Jenner and Rihanna island hopping and yachting around for birthday celebrations, it’s sure to catch some attention and news spreads pretty quickly with squads like these…

Lake Como

Lake Como has been graced by some of the more ‘up market’ celebrities Hollywood has to offer. This is a destination meant more for relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family than the fist-pumping party vibes you’ll find in Ibiza. This doesn’t mean to say partying is few and far between… However, Lake Como definitely brings out the cultural side to any holiday and allows for more of a getaway than many of the other Hotspots on this list.

Ahhh, Mehico. You are so misunderstood. Yes, you can be a terrifyingly dangerous place corrupted by drug cartels and violence, but you also have a soft side. And this, my friends, is the side you want to meet. The language, culture, music, food, landscape and architecture are what captures people most about Mexico, and Tulum is just one of the coastal towns encompassing all of the above – not to mention the most outrageously beautiful coastline you ever set those pretty little eyes on.

South of France

If we haven’t already given you enough of a reason to book your next trip to Europe, here’s one more to really push you across the line; The South of France. I mean, would you just look at this place? Every reason you’re experiencing a severe case of #fomo right now is clearly depicted in the above photo. Don’t think it’s real? Well, either did we, so we did some investigating and according to our findings, it totally exist. You can even ask Chrissy Teigen if you don’t believe us…

5 Last Minute Labor Day Weekend Ideas

Do us a favor right now and pat yourself on the back for all your hard work and dedication! You’re a champion and you deserve to take some time for yourself – and luckily the perfect occasion is fast approaching. Labor Day is such a glorious holiday because it honors the hard working individuals that help make America such an amazing country to live in. Labor day is all about relaxation, celebration, and fun. Now there’s probably a lot of you that have already planned a fabulous and elaborate weekend getaway to zen out. But for those of us who don’t have plans yet, we’re giving you some easy and inexpensive suggestions to make the most out of your Labor Day weekend!

  1. Take a road trip!
    There’s something about hitting the open road and exploring unknown territories that isn’t only relaxing, but adventurerous and exciting. Once the holidays roll around and the cold weather starts to set in, the appeal of a road trip lessens. Driving up the coast to a visit a beautiful beach or heading out into the desert to watch the stars is the perfect easy escape from your busy life. Take your bestie or lover, create the road trip perfect playlist and just go!
  2. Have a BBQ and invite your closest friends.
    Nothing says Labor Day weekend fun like a big BBQ! Do it at a local beach park, in your back yard or preferably at a friends house with a pool. Themed parties are always fun so make it interesting and tell everyone they must come dressed in all white! Make sure to get a couple pool floats and lots of rosé. You’ll have the cutest party pics ever.
  3. Go on a nature hike.
    This may sound boring to some, but hiking in nature can be one of the greatest stress relievers ever. Breathing in the fresh air and being surrounded by trees and beauty is honestly just good for the soul.
  4. Plan a beach day.
    This is a must during your Labor Day weekend. I’m not just talking about an average beach day, I’m talking real preparation. Invite all your friends, bring music (major key), beach blankets, towels, a picnic basket, activities like footballs and frisbees, and a Polaroid camera!
  5. Explore your city.
    As our work-weeks tend to keep us busy bees it’s easy to just stay home during down time and veg out on the couch. This is totally understandable, but Labor Day weekend is an opportunity to step outside the box and check out some things you wouldn’t usually have time for. I love going to art galleries. What’s the art scene like in your city? Have you ever explored it? What about an interesting museum or landmark you’ve never visited. You will not only feel culturally enriched afterward, but you’ll feel more in touch with your city too.Shop Labor Day Essentials
