The 100-page glossy mag features interviews from reality TV golden girls Vicky Pattison and Montana Brown, as well as a chat with cover star Caroline Flack. She shares her wisdom on all things holiday, from the ultimate capsule wardrobe to take in your carry-on, what beauty bits you definitely do and don’t need, the lowdown on LDRs (aka long-distance relationships) and holiday romances, plus updates from her recent jaunt to Santorini. Need we say more?
