Meet the Hamdan sisters

Sara Hamdan

Welcome to a magazine editor’s guide to luxury hotels and what to wear when you’re there! My work has appeared in: The International New York Times, Rolling Stone, Variety and CNN Travel. I’ve held editorial roles at VIVA Magazine, Dubai Magazine and Stylist Arabia.  Now, I freelance for the likes of Google, CNN and Savoir Flair!

Editing travel pages was always my favourite part of working for lifestyle magazines. I started this blog out of a love of beautiful hotels that provide the fairytale escape of a day as a princess where breakfast is a buffet and chocolates appear on my pillow.

I worked for nearly a decade in the trendy world of PR, advertising, and marketing in Europe and Dubai. I’ve managed a range of luxury clients, like Singapore Airlines and Infiniti, but focused on healthcare as my major passion when I found my calling.

I work in healthcare marketing and am a zumba instructor in the evening. I studied in Switzerland and London, where I traveled both Europe and the United States extensively – so I’m excited to share tips on where to travel and what to do! I hope you’ll share the journey with us through Holidays in Heels where you get fashion, travel, health and book recommendations all in one.
