I make it a point to visit a spa in each city I travel to, which is a goal rarely achieved on New York Fashion Week trips. When my flight home was postponed due to a snow day, I knew I would finally have a chance to indulge. My girlfriend and I made lemonade out of lemons by scheduling services at NYC’s best and most luxurious hideaway – the Spa at the Mandarin Oriental New York.
I’ve always loved the London NYC. It was the only place my family would stay at when the boy was younger. With a West 54th Street address, the hotel is centrally located and walking distance from Central Park – not to mention comprised only of suites! Now I stay there by myself during Fashion Week.
With all the traveling I do there is one thing I cannot live without – the comfort and feel of home offered by my Kashwére blanket. The compact design has a zip-around pouch that turns into a pillowcase capable of making even the most awful airline pillows into little slices of heaven.
Planning a trip to the City of Lights? I have my favorite spots to visit, but I love to get suggestions from friends and colleagues about their must-sees and dos. As a celeb stylist (and Katy Perry bestie) traveling all around the world to create looks for Jessica Stam, Leighton Meester, and Nicky Hilton, Logan Horne knows all the newest spots you can’t miss.
If you don’t play your cards right, that feeling of relaxation you bring back from vacation will dissipate as soon as you enter your front door. Suddenly the fun is over, and you’re left with a suitcase of unpacked luggage to deal with and a case of serious sleep deprivation preventing you from even mustering the strength to open it.
Are you on the list? These days travel is more hectic than ever. From the bag fees to the security lines, you’re bound to be stressed while heading somewhere to relax. Check out these new airport clubs that could help ease the stress (and minimize the time) of your airport experience.
Have a beach getaway coming up? If not, you need to get on it, stat! Play your credit cards right, and it really isn’t that expensive. A mileage earning credit card is essential for a Travel Snob. I put everything from groceries to household bills on ours, and the miles add up shockingly quickly. This year alone we’ve flown to Paris, Puerto Rico, and Punta Mita all with our points.
