It’s official: Friend In Fashion’s Jasmin Howell is our new spirit guide. We chatted all things travel, style and summer plans with this gorgeous girl. Read on for some serious #lifegoals.
You’ve recently been to New York. What are the top three must-do’s there?
Every time I return to New York, a visit to Top Of The Rock is a must. It has the most incredible views over the city – it really can’t be beaten
Visit some of New York’s incredible roof-top lounges. I love Mr Purple in the Lower East Side, or Le Bain at The Standard Hotel in the MeatPacking District.
Shop up a storm in Soho! One of my favourite places to shop, not only will you find all your design favourites, you will also stumble across some amazing boutiques and thrift shops.
Where is your fave place in the world and why?
I get asked this question a lot and it’s always so difficult to narrow down to just one place – I have SO MANY favourites. If I had to pick one, it would likely be the Maldives – absolute heaven on Earth! The most incredible sea, sand and aquatic life. On my last visit, I had the chance to swim with some beautiful sea turtles in the most crystal clear turquoise water – absolutely divine.
Where’s next on your bucket list?
Patagonia has been on my bucket list for a while. The natural landscape there looks like it’s out of a movie, especially the gigantic icebergs!
What are the top three things you can’t leave home without?
My phone, wallet and a pair of chic shades – trust me, these always come in handy!
What are your must have accessories for travelling?
An oversized scarf/wrap is a must – perfect when the plane gets chilly, and also as a styling accessory once you’ve landed. I’ve even used a wrap as a makeshift skirt, when on the go! It’s an essential travel item.
Sunglasses – perfect to disguise jet-lagged eyes.
A great carry-all, that you can use on the plane to quickly access essentials, but also doubles as a bag you can take out all day/night. Stick to neutrals like black or nude for more versatility.
A comfy pair of flats – trust me, I’m a heels girl, but running between airports, trains and taxis, flats are your friend.
How do you live the Sportsgirl Way Of Life?
I’m constantly seeking new adventures, I love to travel, and am always on the go, whether trying out a new restaurant or catching up with my best babes over drinks or at the gym. The more action the better from my point of view. I love to live by the motto, life is short. break the rules. forgive quickly. kiss slowly. love truly. laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile.
Bags or shoes – what is your number one love and why?
This is impossible to answer – I love (and collect) both!
Summer beauty must haves and why?
Sunscreen is a must, I also love a great illuminator, to accentuate sun-kissed summer skin, and of course a great lip colour. Hues of pink and coral are my summer favourites.
