Right up there with Capri, St. Tropez, and Biarritz is Mykonos. It’s one of the world’s most awe-inspiring vacation destinations and now, with the euro at a low and Greece in financial turmoil, there couldn’t be a more perfect time to visit the beautiful Greek island.
After attending shows at New York Fashion Week for more than 16 seasons and making regular bi-weekly commutes from Dallas, I’ve stayed in more NYC hotels than I can remember, and this past NYFW, I added another to the list – the newly renovated Paramount Hotel.
I just got back from an amazing week in Europe that took me from Milan to Parma to Dublin to the Irish countryside to the British countryside and finally to London…
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.
