Burger & Lobster and lovely Milsom Street, Bath, England - If you aren't familiar with the concept of Burger & Lobster, it is quite clever. You can have a burger or a lobster (either a whole one or a lobster roll) and a glass o something lovely. In London, queues go around the block. In Bath, we arrived early for lunch and were seated immediately.

We adored the drinks at Nizuc. We loved the main bar, not only in terms of design, but also the wonderful setting. The hotel is seriously one of the best design i have ever seen and we really felt at home. The gin selection was very very limited and basic - so instead we tried quite a few of the different margaritas, from the classic to something spicier. It was fun.

The Maldives is, without a doubt, my favorite place in the world. This time I spent time at the W Maldives. The sunsets are beautiful, everything is effortless, and very personal. The beach villas are quite different from other resorts I had visited in the past, and they had 2 floors, which was indeed special. The 188 sqm villa was made up of the bedroom area with separate seating area, outdoor bathroom, private pool, and a great sitting area on the first floor, above our room.

On a trip to Mallorca, I discovered one of the most special hotels I have had the pleasure of staying at: the stunning Belmond La Residencia. The hotel is really gorgeous, offering amazing views, and the service was great too. One of Mallorca's best kept secrets is its food - and I loved how the hotel really embraced the local delights, and I really mean it. El Olivio is one of the restaurant options, and is considered one of the best restaurants in Mallorca, and it did not disappoint. It's…

Alentejo is one of Portugal's leading wine making regions - and is one of Europe's best kept secrets. The lovely Herdade do Esporao produces some of the best wines in the country. For lunch, we had a pre-set menu, which began with some local bread to try with various olive oils that Esporao pro dues, which were really elegant. The challenge is to balance the bread eaten while perusing the menu, which for us, were 3 courses with wine pairings and dessert.

As you may know, Lisbon is my hometown and I go back a few times a year, but never as a tourist. But, with the help of Exclusive TLC, I decided that I deserved some touristy time. One place I loved was Embaixada, which is an old building that has been restored and each retailer took a room (or more). It resulted in an interesting mismatch. Up and coming brands can all be present in a special location.

The great Christmas Market in Bath - which is so nice (especially at night!).

Nizuc Resort & Spa, Mexico, is located very close to Cancun, but a world away from its crowds. It's about 15 minutes from the edge of Cancun and is wonderful. The hotel is beautifully designed, with various activities organised for guests, a very busy spa (book in advance!), and some beautiful hotel scenery. We set up a lovely shoot with Flytographer, and it was the best thing we did. It really captured our moods and the stunning hotel scenery.

My love for Lisbon is no secret. It is my hometown and I try to go back as often as I can. While there, Mr O and I decided to go for the longest walk ever, which took us over 4 hours - and loved every minute of it. Check out the path we took and what we discovered along the way. Paris em Lisboa is one of Lisbon's oldest shops (Paris in Lisbon, as you could probably guess). When I was a little girl, I went there with my mother to buy housewares. It is still going strong - it is absolutely…

While at the W Maldives, I tried the spa twice. I meant to go every day, but I fell ill and couldn't. I really enjoyed my massage (priced at $150++ for 50 mins) and the post treatment views.
