Oh la la LUXURY … Let’s dabble in luxury for a moment. Typically, shopping in luxury stores makes my heart beat an out-of-control rhythm. I have a naggy little jerk-face in my head saying ‘Erhhhmergerd, do I deserve this treat? ‘ Then the jerk-face turns into a cool dude and says ‘ Oh hells yeah!! ‘ TruthBomb : My pal Norma bought these little treasures for my 50th birthday. I should have probably French kissed her. I may have made a scene. Expensive. Duly Noted. Me avoid. I took this next picture in front of a bunch of fancy peeps. It was a crowded sidewalk. I didn’t feel stupid at all. I took one for the team. Travel is the real deal. Do what you can afford and then splurge it out a little every now and again. It’s all out there for you. Grab it. Love it. It’s legit. It’s dirty. It’s fun. It’s gritty. It’s living on the edge. It’s stepping outside your comfort zone. It’s living large. It’s where the rubber meets the road. It’s something that you can sink your teeth into. You just may learn something new about yourself. Like how not to be bored. Travel is powerful. It is a no bullshit, no holds barred way of living out loud. Get out into the big world. It makes your big problems seem small. Don’t let your dreams be dreams. Embrace the moment.
Top 10 travel tips that won’t make you want to punch people in the face…1. Carry a night light We all need a good nights rest. Hallelujah. A good nights rest means you shouldn’t have to face plant a wall in the middle of the night. Pop a night light in your bathroom! You’ll be the Obi-Wan Kenobi of sleep mastery. 2. Smarty pants Luggage labelling Outsmart the duffasses that lose your luggage. Put your name and address on a big sheet of paper on the inside of your luggage. Make it blatantly obvious INSIDE. If your outside tags are lost and your luggage ends up in Tokyo instead of Orlando, the airline will see a big ‘ol sheet of paper when they open your luggage. Yes, they will open your luggage. Bam. Luggage mystery solved. Be sure to hide your unmentionables *blush* 3. True Lemon Packs <– Lemon for your water Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate. Yet, water is boring. *Yawn* For some reason, when someone tells me to drink more water, I want to throat punch them. It’s kind of like when someone tells you to smile. They are entering the kill zone with them there fighting words. There is one exception to the water rule. Okay, maybe two. This water cleanse and lemon. Putting a real lemon in your purse will make you look like a dork. These lemon packs are a lemon explosion in your mouth. You’ll want to lick the lid of your water bottle. Just sayin’. You may actually legit like your water. I know. I know. Imagine that? Wahhheird. You’re a weird-o. I think I like you. I’ve bought my lemon packs in the health food store over the last zillion years. Then I discovered that you can buy True Lemon on Amazon for less moola. I’m smart (and a little slow) like that. Gimme that water. Right. Now. It’s waterlicious. 4. Use wifi : Do not, I repeat (with passive aggressive screaming) do not for the love of all things Holy, do not do not do not turn on your data roaming. Like ever. In the history of ever. If you
Say no more …Le Meurice for an event called #EmbraceParis. I embraced everything and anything that had to do with Paris. I embraced my Le Meurice pillow. I embraced my Le Meurice slippers. I embraced the door man. I embraced the housekeeping gal (Anyone who delivers chocolate, deserves a hug.) I embraced the woman in the spa who massaged my face for an hour. I don’t know what she put on my face, but when she was done I drooled and mumbled the words …
I’ll take that and that and that. Thank.You.Very.Much.For breakfast, I embraced anything that seemed even remotely French. AKA everything. I have the muffin top to prove it. 8. Pack your luggage like the boss Technically, I have no business doling out pointers on packing luggage. I’m the gal who sits on her luggage while blurting out a prayer to the luggage Gawds. Guess what? I tried a new folding technique and it freaking worked. It toats worked. 9. A scented candle or incense Shush your head. Cue the music. Chill it. A scented candle or incense will rock your travelling world. Your hotel will feel like home when it smells like home. My faves are this candle and this Super Hit incense <– oh ehmmm geeeeh I’ve been using the Volcano candle for f.o.r.e.v.e.r. It smells soooooo divine. Truth is, I pretty much hate most scented candles and incense. They cause me to make this face that resembles this –>> ?*&^%$#@!! But.But.But… Super Hit Incense changed all that.
