“And then I realised, adventures are the best way to learn.”

NYE and Skinny Champagne?

Dear Citizen Femme-ers,

Can you feel it, the change in season? Heading back to London after months in Los Angeles, I was dreading the cold weather. I was used to the outdoor lifestyle of early morning Runyon Canyon hikes and rooftop pools, but the beauty of changing seasons is something I truly enjoy. The sunshine (if the weather Gods appease us) balanced with the crisp air and hustle of Christmas shoppers stopping for sips of mulled wine is what December is about for me. Londoners, however, look forward to an escape from the cold.

And reading the stories of Seville to South America, San Sebastian to Singapore simply excites me to book my next trip.

Holly Kyte’s insider guide to Seville and tips on 2 must-stay Hotels are worth a read. If you’re looking for a January yoga escape, Nancy Rahman gives us the lowdown on the best destinations foryoga lovers, based on your personality.

Planning a last minute New Year’s Eve getaway? New writer Alison Harvey Barretto gives us a look into NYE in Cartagena, “a fairy-tale city of romance, legends and superbly preserved beauty.”

And finally, if you are indulging this Christmas (as you should be), I’d suggest some Skinny Champagne! Oh yes, you did read that. Read interview with the founder of what The Guardian calls the ‘basic bitch drink’. It’s what we should all be drinking and clinking our glasses to.

We have some exciting news coming up in our next newsletter, so watch this space, we can’t wait to share it with you! Let’s call it an early Christmas present from Citizen Femme 🙂
