The World’s Most Incredible Honeymoon Destinations

Getting married is a fantastic feeling and choosing a honeymoon destination is the icing on the cake. Don’t let the dilemma of where to go stress you out- take a leaf out of team Fiorelli’s book as we share our fave honeymoon destinations.

Best for All Out Luxury: Four Seasons, Bora Bora

Famed for its azure turquoise ocean, remarkable scenery and tropical climate, Bora Bora is arguably the most beautiful island in the world. Situated in the French Polynesia, the breathtaking Four Seasons resort is surrounded by a barrier reef and the remains of an extinct volcano.

If you’re an ocean lover, escape to the resorts incredible over-water bungalows which are perched in the sea on stilts. Scared of swimming? Landlubbers can opt for plush on-shore villas stretched along a pristine private beach.

Unwind in your own private villa pool, treat yourself to a holistic treatment, challenge your partner to a game of tennis or simply eat, drink and be merry at 4 themed restaurants. Feeling adventurous? The resorts delivery dining experience allows guests to eat lavish lunches on a canoe in the middle of the pacific.

Now, if only we could just find someone to pop the question…

Best for Elegance: Hotel Ciprianai, Venice

Despite its cult status and celebrity clientele, Hotel Cipriani still manages to feel intimate. Hidden away on an island in the Venetian region, the Cipriani experience starts from the second your plane touches down on the runway.

You’ll be collected in a custom-built boat which will sail into the heart of Venice before arriving at the stylish hotel. From opulent marble bathrooms to full length windows offering unrivalled vista views, the hotel exudes elegance.

Full of 18th century charm, the dining room is a particularly grand affair. From the iconic Cip’s Club to the regal Oro restaurant, each area has been designed by architect Adam Tihany to reflect the romantic mood of Venice.

Indulge in Michelin-starred Italian cuisine, dine under a luxurious golden ceiling or gaze at the picturesque lagoon from the poolside bar. It really doesn’t get any better than this.

Best for Something Different: Loisaba, Kenya

Staring up at the African night sky from an open-air four poster bed sounds unusual, but at Loisaba Wilderness resort in Kenya, it’s just part of the experience.  Dive into a world filled with wild animals, majestic scenery and soul revitalising fun at this East African retreat.

Raft down the rivers of Ewaso Ngiro, witness tigers and lions up close on a safari drive and enjoy the freedom of this unspoilt land.

Whether you’re looking for an exhilarating horse ride on the same turf as a herd of zebra or serene candlelit dinners away from it all, the Wilderness resort is a truly unique honeymoon experience.

Fiorelli’s A/W 14 Trend Predictions

Put your best foot forward this A/W by taking style inspiration from Fiorelli. From block coloured brights to sixties retro chic, nail your new season wardrobe ahead of everyone else.

Don’t let the September chill stop you from braving brights, this season is all about abstract colour blocking. Dynamic shades of emerald green and post box red mixed with classic colours give autumn a dynamic new direction. Blue will be this season’s showstopper with cobalt and powder shades taking precedence over other hues.

Heat up your bright ensemble with flat footwear and a new season handbag such as the luxurious Kayla hobo in black. Decadent and fluffy, it’ll glam up even the most casual outfit.

Flat footwear is having a moment. Reigning supreme on catwalks and urban concrete, it’s the most comfortable trend to hit the racks yet. Pulling off the look is all about getting the proportions right. Style those patent loafers with tailored crop trousers or an A-line skirt. Avoid teaming your ballerinas with pleated skirt silhouettes or wide-legged trousers unless you’re tall enough to work it.

When it comes to wearing your flats stylishly, there’s something about showing your ankles off that looks so much better than hiding them under full length skinnies. Pair those slip ons with slim fit jeans which come up above the ankle bone for easy elegance.

The sixties are in reboot mode this season. Shift dresses refashioned with a modern twist, vintage look oval shaped handbags, peep toe sandals and winged eyeliner are all set to shine. Give your sixties threads an update by pairing classic pieces with contemporary. Team a 60’s tunic dress with a bomber jacket to give it an edge or freshen up a staple roll neck with a denim jacket.

Work the trend with our Imogen shoulder in emerald. A guaranteed head tuner, the bowling bag shape is reminiscent of the sixties and will make any outfit pop.

Will it be the swinging sixties or flat footwear frenzy which takes your fancy this A/W? Let us know your favourite A/W trends by tweeting us @Fiorelli_Bags or leaving us a comment below.

Get the Look: Millie Mackintosh

If there’s one fashionista we can’t get enough of its MIC star Millie Mackintosh. When she isn’t channelling beach babe on hols with Professor Green she’s rocking a fedora and skinnies on the streets of London. And Mackintosh isn’t just stylish when out and about; her love of looking good extends to covetable gym wear too! What a woman.

Join us as we admire some of Mackintosh’s best outfits and give our own two pennies worth on how we’d work the look.

Summer in the City

Perhaps we’re a bit optimistic with this one, but we’re still holding out hope that Mr Sunshine will return us to bare legged bliss. In the event of an Indian summer we’ll be following in Millie’s footsteps with a two tone dress and heeled sandals. We love the simplicity of this outfit and the lace trim hemline is ultra-feminine.

Garnish the outfit with the Fiorelli Nova Tote in tan and tortoiseshell sun specs. Ta-da!

Monochrome Glam

Monochrome is one of the easiest trends to pull off and executed right can look flawless. Here Mackintosh brings a touch of elegance to the humble jumpsuit with a blazer and heels adding height and structure to the outfit. A statement fedora and croc effect clutch complete the ensemble well- it’s both a chic and androgynous look.

Want to follow in Mills footsteps? We suggest updating the look with our red Layla satchel for an eye-catching pop of colour. If you’re not sold on the idea of wearing a jumpsuit you could just as well champion the look with a white maxi and black accessories. Sophisticated and easy to achieve, it’s the perfect summer to autumn transition.

Jaw Dropping Gym Wear

Most of us wouldn’t be caught dead posing for photos post gym sweat sesh, but even when she’s working out Mackintosh is on top of her style game. Looking effortlessly glam in a black unitard, aviator sunglasses and matching black trainers with pink laces, we’re vowing to take a leaf out of her book and get co-ordinated for A/W.

Farewell neon trainers and baggy t-shirts, it’s time to up the ante with matchy-matchy trainers and gym wear. Eat your heart out, Mackers.

Carnival Style | Dress To Survive

Each year Notting Hill carnival gives us an opportunity to celebrate the culture, food and music of the Caribbean right here in London. Not to mention the exciting mix of people and style. If you’re heading down to Notting Hill this year then here are some tips for surviving the chaos, staying comfortable and looking good.  

The key to having a great time is comfort, fabulously comfortable! Look good but feel better; hours of walking and dancing require meticulously planned outfits. Stay on trend with a pair of high waisted denim shorts, trainers and a brightly coloured kimono. Opt for this seasons must have in our gorgeous Lexi packpack available in two colours. Keep your valuables safe and hands free with a top zip closure, front and back pockets  and adjustable shoulder straps.  Alternatively, complete your look with our classic Tessa crossbody bag and have easy access to your money with its front purse like pocket. 
Now that you’re dressed for the occasion, remember to stay in groups or at least in a pair, and stay hydrated. Keep a bottle of water with you at all time and finally, let your hair down and have fun!

If hours of walking isn’t your thing, then swap your trainers for a pair of high heels and turn your daytime look into a night time carnival after-party ready outfit and complete your look with our Rose Frame Clutch.

Heading down to the carnival this year ? Tweet us your carnival style pictures  @Fiorelli_Bags

#FiorelliTravels: The Mia Heads to Lulworth

This week upon our #FiorelliTravels our graphic designer and bride to be Heather is on the hunt for her perfect wedding location. Last weekend she visited Lulworth along the Dorset coast to visit a potential venue, and found the area so beautiful that she couldn't wait to share it with you upon the blog!

Her first stop was the magnificent Lulworth castle which has been around since the 17th Century. Although it’s now largely a tourist attraction, it also plays host to numerous wedding receptions each year, with churches just a stone’s throw away.   

It’s also possible to climb to the very top of its tower too, which boasts great views. For Heather’s visit, she took along her Mia intan and teamed it with a summery orange dress and blazer. 

After exploring the castle and its grounds, it was time to venture a little further into its surroundings, and just to make those wedding snaps a little more picturesque, the beautiful Lulworth cove with its Durdle Door and Man O war beaches. 

Some of its beaches are only accessible via a steep path too but they’re definitely worth the effort. And you’ve guessed it, Heather couldn’t resist but take the Mia along for a bit of a climb around the rocks, and there could never be a better time than this to add on its detachable crossbody strap. It’s not for the faint hearted, and sturdy shoes are a definite must too! It was time to switch to the trainers.

So, what do you think of Lulworth as a wedding location? Why not drop us a comment below? And don’t forget to tag us in your own #FiorelliTravels too @ Fiorelli_Bags on Twitter or @fiorelli_bags on Instagram.
