A Chic Bahama Mama

  |   By Alison McGill

Last week I was barely at my desk because I had so many events, meet and greets with some seriously cool people like the gorgeous and glam India Hicks.


A Chic Bahama Mama

India was in town for the opening of the fabulous new Teatro Verde store in Toronto (which is the chicest place in town for flowers, interiors and amazing gifts), and I managed to score a some face time with her. In case you’re not familiar, India is the granddaughter of Lord Mountbatten, goddaughter of Prince Charles and was a bridesmaid to Charles and Diana. These days she is renown for her career as a model, interior designer and product creator with Crabtree & Evelyn. She’s called the Bahamas home for 13 years with her partner David Flint Wood and their four children, so I figured if there was anyone who could offer expert advice on the islands, specifically honeymooning there, it would be her. “There are so many islands to explore in the Bahamas, offering different experiences for everyone,” India shared. “There are lots of wonderful romantic places.” What are some of her picks? You’ll have to check back in a few weeks time when we’ll give you the scoop! In the meantime, I suggest you get yourself in a Bahamas frame of mind by picking up India’s Island Nights fragrance—she just won an award for this one at the Canadian Fragrance Awards. Congrats India!
