Style Camp's Travel Highlights 2016
I was lucky to have visited lots of destinations over the course of 2016, both for pleasure and for Style Camp. Here are some of my favourite spots and recommendations if you're heading to any of these places in 2017!
1. FEB 2016 - JARDIN DE CACTUS, LANZAROTE
Lanzarote is a real gem of a place full of the most amazing sights to visit, but this cactus garden was truly unique. Conceived by local modernist artist César Manrique, the garden features over 1100 varieties of cactus sunken into the eerily beautiful volcanic landscape.
Stylecamp's Grace two piece set at the Jardín de Cactus in Lanzarote
I love how Stylecamp's vibrant pink Grace two piece is set off perfectly by the shades of green, almost like a cactus flower itself.
The island of Lanzarote has so much to offer and even in February, the temperatures were just warm enough to break out the Stylecamp sets!
2. MAY 2016 - CAFE SAVOY, PRAGUE
We ate SO well during our brief stay in Prague and I can't wait to go back for more. We were recommended the Café Savoy restaurant and coffee bar.
The ceiling at Cafe Savoy, Prague May 2016
Hearty, yet elegant, cuisine set in beautiful surroundings under an original Neo-Renaissance painted ceiling. All at more than reasonable prices and without the feeling of being in a tourist trap.

If you find yourself in Prague make a beeline for this place, the locals recommended it for its great coffee alone!
3. OCTOBER 2016 - JARDIM BOTANICO TROPICAL, LISBON
We were blown away by the beauty of these seemingly abandoned tropical gardens found in the outskirts of Lisbon, Belém. It holds one of the largest collections of subtropical plants and trees collected from Portuguese colonial times.
Despite it being overgrown and falling into disrepair , it was eerie and beautiful all in one measure, the silence only adding to the mystery of the place.
Style Camp's red Nanette Dress at the Jardim Botânico
The deserted mansion that overlooked the gardens provided the perfect backdrop for a Stylecamp photoshoot, grabbing us some great shots of Stylecamp's Nanette skater dress.
With only a clan of ducks for company, we really felt like we'd discovered something secret and special.
4. APRIL 2016 - VINTAGE SHOPPING IN COPENHAGEN
Copenhagen was great for grabbing some vintage inspiration, it has a wealth of quirky indie boutiques, vintage and second-hand shops that I just can't resist nosing in.
