Working in a holiday resortwear shop makes me want to travel… every day! Certain colours and styles remind me of adventures abroad pre Husband, pre child, pre Biondi… And some of the new designs for Biondi’s S/S 15 will always remind me of my latest trip to Turks and Caicos last May. The run up to the holiday was frenetic. Various UK swimwear buyers were coming into to see the new 2015 collection from Vix and my own brand Biondi was everywhere I looked - in swatches, paper cuts out and mood boards galore. I was craving the total switch off and downtime with my family.

Beach time with my husband and daughter

Normally I find the initial switch off tricky but Grace Bay was paradise and perhaps my favourite beach EVER (big words from a Brazilian).

Relaxing with a cocktail

Every day we swam in the sea, ate great food (with a particular favourite being Coco Bistro), drank cocktails with our toes in the sand and appreciated the pure luxury of this family (yet not too family) destination.

The perfect way to end our trip

We stayed at the gorgeous Seven Stars but I hear most of the resorts in Grace Bay are great.
