Marrakech is truly a shopper’s paradise! Not only is it filled with the most fabulous finds everywhere you look, shopping in the souks pumps up your adrenaline and gives you the best "shopper’s high" ever — even more so than finding that pair of Marni shoes at a deep discount! Part of the thrill of the hunt is definitely in the art of bargaining, which is certainly an acquired skill-set that improves throughout the trip. However, it’s also indescribably inspiring to be in such an exotic atmosphere surrounded with such beautiful objects. And, just for the record,I arrived with one suitcase and left with two — thanks Fabrizio for the loaner. Now that’s what I call a successful shopping trip!

LA MAMOUNIA
A hotel that makes you feel like you are a member of the Royal family. Perhaps it’s because of it’s Royal owner — the King of Morocco. Every little detail throughout La Mamounia is a work of art, including the large platter of figs in the entrance. It’s a feast for the senses!
