MADRASA MOMENTS

Ben Youssef Madrasa Morocco Marrakesh Style Fashion Form 42

  Hello and welcome to Ben Youssef Madrasa, one of the most stunning buildings in all of Marrakesh. This famous Islamic college is now open to the public as a historical and cultural sight. And on my fleeting Marrakesh adventure I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit this gem. Honestly though, the place was so amazing, that I am forgoing copy entirely in this post, and leaving you with just these images. Enjoy. With love and sunburn, from your truly.…

ROYAL MANSOUR SPA ESCAPE

Marrakesh Royal Mansour Spa Morocco Style Fashion Form 42

I am not sure that relaxing is something I really do. Every holiday, trip, day out for me is go, go, go. I love discovering new things too much when I travel. I come back from every holiday feeling sleep deprived, hungry, on the verge of a getting cold; just generally a bit broken. But when I was wrapping up my Marrakesh trip, Royal Mansour made sure I got all the relaxation and good vibes in, and got shipped to London…

ROYAL MANSOUR

Marrakesh Royal Mansour Morocco Style Fashion Form 42

Ever felt like Alice in Wonderland and Indiana Jones at the same time? No? Here’s how. Or more specifically where: the Royal Mansour in Marrakesh. Every time someone asks what my name is and I tell them it’s Alice, the same three words inevitably follow: “Like in Wonderland?”. Yes, like in Wonderland. It helps people remember me, so I’m all for it, but I’ve never really felt in Wonderland anywhere, much less like Indiana Jones… till I set foot in…

THE PALMERAIE

Palmeraie Marrakesh Morocco Style Fashion Form 42

Good evening form Marrakesh and this beautiful palm paradise. We were fortunate enough that our hotel (Dar Ayniwen) was was located in Marrakesh’ famed  Palmeraie district – a sea of a palms that stretches all the way to the horizon. Inside the hotel walls we enjoyed the comfort and beauty of a Mediterranean garden, filled with lemons, palms and a whole perfume-bottle worth of otherness which I don’t have the horticultural knowledge to name. But right outside the walls, we found…

MARRAKESH POOLSIDE

Dar Ayniwen Hotel Morocco Marrakesh Style Fashion Form 42

Good morning from Dar Ayniwen hotel, where I seem to be spending a considerable length of time perfecting the art of relaxing. For me, a lot of the time, life starts where my comfort zone ends. I try to see, do and eat my way though every Lonely Planet guide book on my shelf. I start my days at 6 am, climb mountains, pilot planes and take pictures of everything along the way. It’s amazing and exciting but it does leave you feeling…

A ROOM WITH A VIEW

In today’s post I am taking another walk though the Dar Ayniwen’s large and fragrant grounds and I can’t get enough of them. During our stay at the hotel we got to discover a different suite every night to truly experience as much of Dar Ayniwen as possible. And I think this room was my favourite by far (first picture). Like the other rooms it had plenty of amazing character, intricate detailing and traditional craftsmanship, but it came with a bonus…

DAR AYNIWEN GARDEN

Dar Ayniwen Hotel Morocco Marrakesh Style Fashion Form 42

This beautiful setting is located on the grounds of Dar Ayniwen hotel. Mariko form Silk and Suits and I have been working so hard on a bunch of posts and relaxing on the hotel grounds in the afternoon afterwards were some of my favourite Marrakesh moments. We found this beautiful spot hidden behind the palm trees, surrounded by parrots and other exotic birds. It was so peaceful and quiet and the perfect hang-out after a long day’s work and exploring…

MEDINA SOUQS

Marrakesh Medina Souqs Morocco Fashion Style Form 42

People often ask me what my favourite place in the world is. I can’t and I won’t pick. Every place is unique and you have to love it for its own special brand of magic. Which is why I am so in love with Marrakesh. In pictures, everything is terracotta. The ground, sand, walls, roofs, and even the camels… It might look dry and dusty but you have to live it to really see it. When I first stepped out of…

MOROCCAN ROSES

Dar Ayniwen Hotel Morocco Marrakesh Style Fashion Form 42

Marrakesh has been on my wish list for well over a year. Or maybe even two. But this year, it all kind of came together, unexpectedly and completely last minute. And it has been an amazing, busy, sandy and fragrant adventure. Wish I could bottle the unique smell of rose petals, orange blossom and camel for you guys… but these pictures are gonna have to do. Sorry. I stayed at the Dar Ayniwen hotel, nested in the Palmeraie district – a huge field…
