The end of an era | Goodbye Stealstylist


It comes with great pleasure and a tiny bit of sadness to announce the end of
I started this blog 4 years ago with zero clue how to write a blog post. I knew how to design a blog and I knew that I wanted to get my feelings and thoughts out ; so blogging became my platform to do that. Over time I've gravitated towards many different markets, but never found my niche. The blog went from fashion, to beauty to lifestyle, to travel, to an all around hot mess of everything. There were times when I gave up and took a 6 month break, then I'd jump back in full force.
Needless to say it had been hard to stay motivated with this blog. I've made hundreds of new friends, been awarded an insane amount of opportunities, networked my pants off but remain unsatisfied.

Thanks to my blog I've been able to do things I never thought I would ever get to do. Which is why i'm more motivated than ever to take the leap and start a new venture. I enjoy blogging about products and fashion, but I've always enjoyed writing about my experiences and travel too. I spend roughly 6 months of the year traveling to various places and it never occurred to me to just blog about it!

As a single mom traveling the globe with a little one isn't easy. That being said, having traveled so many times i've found a million and one tricks to the trade to make my life easier. All while enjoying that luxe experience.

Which in-case you haven't guessed, I'm starting fresh in the blogging world with a new blog called

I'll be sharing with you my travel adventures, as well as giving you all the awesome tips I uncover while on the go.  I'm embarking on my final year of university and prepping for my big move back to USA from the UK  in 2018. I hope this new blog can provide me with bigger and better opportunities in my future home .

Want to know what my new blog is all about? 

If you love to travel, get organised, make money, and live a luxe life, then you have landed in the right place!

Hi I’m Abbi,

I've been traveling every year since I could remember, so exploring the world is imprinted into my bones. I've spent 8+ years living on the east coast of USA where I’ve barely scratched the surface of exploring.

Globetrotting is awesome and I’ll be sharing my family trips with you here on Her Luxe Travels! & When I’m not not busy enjoying my own Luxe vacations, I’m going to show you:
How to start and have a kick ass blog

How to De-Stress For a Perfect Nights Sleep

How to De-Stress for a perfect night's sleep -


There isn’t enough time in the day is there? We want to get everything done all at once before we get our vital sleep. Sometimes sleeping isn’t even a priority. I know I can completely relate, as a busy day for me will leave me with less than 5 hours sleep some nights. Obviously, this is terrible and I nearly ALWAYS end up crashing one day out of the week. All the missed sleep that week comes right back to bite me in the middle of the day, my skin will break out and I’ll feel even more stressed.
This is why I came up with a night-time routine to de-stress, relax and help me catch some major ZzZzzZZzzz.

Pukka Detox Tea - How to De-Stress for a perfect night's sleep -


After drinking detox tea, I always feel refreshed. That same feeling after coming out of a shower, is the same sensation I feel after drinking this tea. My favourite is the organic detox by Pukka. A detox tea contains Aniseed, fennel, cardamom and licorice root, to help flush away those toxins while lightly catering to your  sweet tooth. Infuse for 15 mins and drink up!

Clinique 3 step - How to De-Stress for a perfect night's sleep -


I use the Clinique 3 Step system tailored for my own skin type, but what really makes the difference to my skin is my Magnitone LondonFacial Cleansing brush. I can clean my face, apply a facemask and more, but for some reason it still isn’t clean. When I use the Magnitone, I find that makeup and dirt slides right off my skin. You don’t realize how filthy your skin is until you see the dirt drip off onto the brush. It scrubs layers much deeper than your hands can get to making sure there is no left-over makeup or dirt left on your skin.

 I also use the Bubble-gum flavour lip scrub by LUSH. Before using this I would constantly have dry or chapped lips in the morning, I didn’t realise that a simple daily exfoliate could drastically improve the moisture and the colour of my lips. Following this I apply The Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum to my hair.

LUSH Bubblegum lip scrub - How to De-Stress for a perfect night's sleep -

multi mask- How to De-Stress for a perfect night's sleep -


I always multi mask as my skin type VARIES throughout my face. I tend to break out around my jaw, chin and forehead, which is why I like to use the Retexturizing Rose Clay Mask by Origins. Due to my breakouts constantly causing acne scars, this mask is perfect for a deep clean and refining my skins texture. In all the other areas, I love to apply the Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask by The Body Shop. This mask is perfect for providing a deep clean and a soft finish.

No routine is complete without the relaxing music to put me in the chill mood. I Made a perfect throwback R&B Jamz playlist to tailor to my night mood.  Making a playlist on Spotify is free and easy! You should try it, plus it's the perfect prep for your shower karaoke session.


Do you remember always falling asleep after a hot bath as a child? Nothing has changed as an adult. The hot water is soothing all over and will leave you begging for your bed. Personally, I prefer a steamy shower. Baths are time consuming and as I mentioned before, there really isn’t enough time in the day.

I Love to use the two-day moisture shower oil by Sanctuary SpaCovet Garden. It has a slightly warming effect (if your showers aren’t hot enough already). When you rub it into your skin it feels like you’re having a massage. It’s heavenly for sure, and my skin feels silky smooth after using it. It doesn’t quite last two days for me, as my skin is naturally dry and dehydrated. I found that the softness will last roughly 5-8 hours.

MICHEAL PHELPS - LEESA MATTRESS How to De-Stress for a perfect night's sleep -


This is probably the most important part. You can’t get a good night’s rest in an uncomfortable bed! If your mattress is super uncomfortable (like mine) try laying on some fluffy pillows, or consider getting a new mattress. Leesa Mattress are five-star quality, fit for celebrities like Michael Phelps and of course the Kings and Queens you are! You should check them out!

How to make the perfect summer Pimms- Tips from Bohemias head chef Steve Smith

Tips for the perfect Summer Pimms-

How To Make The Perfect Summer Pimms

Summer in England has approached faster than we thought!  It’s time for the perfect BBQs , fun in the sun, family time and of course Drinks! In true English style you should celebrate with a refreshing jug of Pimms!
The quintessentially English beverage boasts a recognizable tawny colour and a delicious blend of citrus fruits, offering a familiar taste of summer.
But how can we make the perfect jug with an effortless taste?

Bohemia’s Head Chef Steve Smith has provided a round-up of top tips to ensure you’re serving the perfect party Pimms this sunny season.

  • 1.    Fruit Fusion

Don’t overload your Pimms with fruit. Instead, pick a few strong flavours that complement each other. An unusual flavour combination that works well is Pomegranate and Basil. Alternatively, take your Pimms to super food heights with the quirky addition of trendy Acai berries.

  • 2.    Herbal Remedy

If you’re using herbs such as basil and mint, crush the leaves before adding them to your drink. This will maximise the aroma and leave your Pimms perfectly seasoned.

  • 3.     Cue the Cranberry

Those with a sweet tooth might like to add a splash of cranberry juice, or opt for flavoured lemonade for an extra boost.

  • 4.    Ice, Ice, Baby

Get creative with your ice by freezing flowers into your ice cube tray. However, try to limit the ice to a few cubes to ensure the Pimms isn’t too diluted by the time it comes to drinking it!

  • 5.     Sugar-coat it

Sprinkle a little lemon juice and sugar over the fruit before you add them to your drink. Let the fruit pieces stand for ten minutes so they macerate and then add them to the liquid at the last minute, to save them from going soggy.



Bohemia Bar & Restaurant provides unrivalled Michelin Star dining in the heart of Jersey. Head Chef Steve Smith, who has held a Michelin Star for over 15 years from the age of just 24, has created a truly outstanding dining experience with his ingredient and flavour driven tasting menus.

Exclusive menu tasting event at Café Rouge Mailbox


Hey everyone! 

This week I was kindly invited to a Summer menu tasting event at the prestigious French restaurant Café Rouge. It's located in the heart of The Birmingham Mailbox , with stunning views of the city center. 
mailbox birmingham Cafe Rouge , by abbigayle warner 

We started off our night with a taste of their Gins , I tried out the Elderflower , then followed with a much greener alternative the Cucumber and Watermelon 👌🏾 
They then provided us with some mini starters which looked too good to eat ! 
Following this we grabbed a sampler plate of various meats and cheese, the perfect compliment to our gin . 
For my main I ordered the Sirloin Steak Frites , which was made to perfection . I like my steak well done and sometimes chefs can over cook the meat , then it becomes bards to eat . However this steak was fantastic . I paired this with red wine , honestly not my cup of tea , nevertheless it was nice to try . 
I then opted for a French Garden Fizz Mocktail , which was hands down the best drink of the night ! 
Following this we enjoyed a dessert sampler which featured a mini taster of their best desserts! 

Overall my experience at this restaurant was great and I could not recommend it more . 

I posted on my Instagram story throughout the night which you can watch here

Made in Birmingham launched their first “LIVE in Birmingham” episode  last week. Guess what? It was live from our very own Birmingham Jewelry Quarter. The show was hosted by George Hancorn and Tafadzwa Mushipe .

Their personalities lit up the room and allowed us all to feel welcome right away!

The show itself featured :
  • A live audience
  • Special guests
  • Sporting stars
  • Gadgets and gimicks

Live in Birmingham was filmed in the gorgeously vintage decor filled, Ana Rocha Bar in the Jewelry Quarter. Businesses and professionals gathered to watch the live launch of Made in Birmingham on Sky guide 117. During the show guests were tweeting using the hashtag #livefromthebhm and sharing the great time they were having.

Having attended the event myself I was able to see what goes on behind the scenes of a live taping, which I found incredibly exciting. The crew were very friendly and organised and broke the ice with the audience, which made our overall experience much better than expected. We all had a great time, networked with each other and got involved with fun presenter challenges.

Of course we were offered wine and hot snacks, which were incredibly tasty. I couldn’t resist whipping out my phone and snapchatting the entire night!  
I think it’s fantastic that we now have a tv channel for our city that we can depend on  to give us local entertainment. I also feel that this could bring many more opportunities to Birmingham and could turn out to be something very big for our city!

If you guys missed the episode you can watch it right here !

Overall the experience as a blogger was fantastic and I look forward to the upcoming shows on the station!

Hopefully we can meet again for another live taping!
Check out the Made In Birmingham website for catch up episodes and their twitter account @madeinbirmingham for info of what’s to come soon!
