At the very start of their friendship, one of the many things that Alex and Rebekah found they had in common was their mutual love of the print that is leopard. It is the one pattern that we can think of that strikes the perfect balance between classy and trashy- and, it's timeless. We've loved it for longer than we can remember, and it seems like every season it is declared "the new black". There is something seductive about leopard print; it's overtly sexy and undeniably powerful, and that's why we love it.

A few weeks ago my parents and I spent a weekend in Budva, Montenegro for a little r&r. Budva is known mostly as a popular beach resort destination with a busy nightlife, but it's also has a rich history, as it is also one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast. Nearby our hotel was Sveti Stefan (the triangular-shaped island jetting out from the mainland in the second from last photo, above). Sveti Stefan is an exclusive resort island that was once popular among celebrities such as Princess Margaret, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Carlo Ponti, Monica Vitti, and Kirk Douglas. Montenegro is one of my all-time favourite places to visit. It's a beautiful country, and the drive along the coast (which includes highlights such as the Bay of Kotor, one of the most beautiful bays in the world) with the expanse of the Adriatic Sea on one side, and the majestic black mountains on the other, is unforgettable.
