The UK Editors take a leaf from the Presents Heroine’s Playbook!

by Associate Editor Pippa Roscoe

One thing that we especially love about Presents is the amazing locations that the heroines find themselves in. And with summer holidays just around the corner, I’ve been looking into where our very own editorial heroines have been jetting off to. We might not have heroes with private jets, but we won’t let that stop us from leading a glamorous and global lifestyle!

Laura in Mexico for Holiday Blog

Last month you heard about Laurie Johnson’s fabulous honeymoon in Hawaii. Safe to say we were all a little green-eyed over that one! Presents’ very own Laura McCallen has been doing her best to out-glob-trot us all with trips to Mexico and Budapest. Not content with just the one trip, Charlotte Mursell has been to France THREE TIMES (and provided us with a beautiful photo as proof!)

While Linda Fildew stuck closer to home, heading to the heady heights of Scotland’s Edinburgh, Sheila Hodgson has visited the delights of Egypt and Sardinia (but not to be outdone, specifically reminded me of her trip to Malaysia last year).  Bryony Green made us all jealous when she set off for Cape Town and kept us updated on the wonders of South Africa via twitter.

Julia Williams is looking forward to a gorgeous holiday in Crete and Barcelona has proved to be a very popular destination for the editors in the UK with both Clio Cornish and Kathryn Cheshire enjoying lots of tapas and even more sangria!

AnneMarie Ryan will be visiting family in America, which does count because it’s a very glamorous setting to us Brits! Nic, also spending time with family, is heading to the sunny climes of Italy.

As for me, some of you may have seen my tweets from Toronto – from the amazing food in Montreal, to the fabulous shopping at Young and Bloor and the giddy excitement of meeting the Canadian editors. (Ladies, I did try to keep my eye out for an alpha hero, but sadly I was too busy having fun!)

And whilst we’re warmed by the happy memories of holidays past, we’re heated by the anticipation of holidays to come!

Australia and New Zealand – keep an eye out for our very own Flo Nicoll who’s packing the sun screen and can’t wait to see you all!

And batten down the hatches Texas, because the UK editors are on their way for the RWA!

But in the meantime, ladies, if you could be whisked away to an exotic location, where would it be and why?!

    All those places sound wonderful to visit (particularly the UK), but I’ll always be a Canadian girl at heart!

    Great post Pippa and what gorgeous photos! So nice to hear about the summer fun. I would have to go with Laurie’s choice 🙂 I’m dying to go to Hawaii – looks so wild and beautiful and it has beaches!! And of course, it’s all research right?!

    So jealous ladies, although I did manage to take in Windsor Castle and Hampton Court when I was at the office in April! I’m heading north to our cottage on Manitoulin Island, home of the great spirit Manitou, for some R&R prior to RWA.

    Fantastic photos and lovely to hear where you have all been. I went looking for inspiration in Italy earlier this year, but if I could go anywhere right now it would be somewhere like the Seychelles. Have fun in America and Australia ladies!
