Before joining Mr & Mrs Smith more than three years ago, my work involved interviewing musicians, but I have always been interested in travel. I think it’s intriguing how where you holiday can shape a particular mindset, build character and influence your attitude to others; this is all part of why I love working at Mr & Mrs Smith. A complete romantic, I love crafting sexy getaways, from minimoons in the Cotswolds to blow-out Maldives honeymoons, and hopefully helping Smith members discover even more reasons to fall in love.
Maxine'stop Mr & Mrs Smith stays
This Bangkok stay is wonderfully museum-like, thanks to the collection of art and antiques. I stayed in the spacious Siam Suite, which has beautiful dark woods and high ceilings, and I completely fangirled over the original Josephine Baker poster hanging in the Saim’s Deco Bar & Bistro.View Hotel
Residenza Napoleone III
It’s right in the heart of Rome’s fashionable shopping district, and absolutely drenched in history. I loved the grand marble staircase, which was lined with antique busts of Roman Emperors, and the surprise of the hidden rooms concealed behind picture frames.View Hotel
Staying hydrated is essential for that post-plane ‘I can't believe you've been on a 10-hour flight’ look; I spritz my face with Jurlique rosewater balancing-mist throughout the flight and moisturise with MAC's Studio Cream.
I wish I was...
Lounging by the black-quartz infinity pool at Boucan by Hotel Chocolat in St Lucia and sipping on chocolate-infused cocktails while taking in the views of the Piton Mountains and the rainforest.
