Travel Sites to Explore

’Tis the season to travel. Whether you’re headed home for the holidays or have visions of an exotic getaway, planning the itinerary for your trip can be overwhelming. So, we’ve scoured the Internet to bring you a roundup of our favorite travel resources. From simple money saving tips, to flight search engines and luxury reviews, click through to see our list of go-to resources for your next excursion.


Let’s start with flights. There are tons of flight search engines out there, but this one does a “meta-meta” search. What does that mean? Well, it pulls the best of the best from all of those flight comparison sites (Expedia, Kayak, etc.) so you can see the very cheapest flights in just a few clicks of the mouse. Bonus: Their “Secret Travel Tips” section has some great advice for making your trip easier.


2. Mr. and Mrs. Smith

If you’re looking for a romantic getaway, we’ve found your luxury hotel booking specialist. Their tactic is to offer the kind of nitty gritty advice you’d give your best friends. We’re talking packing tips and dress codes from real live couples. So channel your inner Brad and Angelina and take a peek around.


3. Jetsetter

To be a true jetsetter, you have to join the members-only club (it’s free!). Once you’re an exclusive insider, instead of secret handshakes you’ll find incredible deals on destinations worldwide. Bonus: We love their blog – check it out to take a mini vacay from your to-do-lists.



4. Galavante


This is a site for the working jet set. If your motto is “work hard play hard,” we’ve found your compass. Become a member and learn how to maximize your rewards points, make the most out of 48-hours in a city, and even plan around a growing family.



5. What’s Worth It


Just because a hotel labels itself as luxurious, doesn’t mean it’s always worth the luxurious price tag. The premise behind this site is simple: “Quest to find the best and leave the rest.” Let their experts do the work for you so you can rest assured that your trip will be well worth it. Bonus: The “Experiences” section is perfect for packing your itinerary with thrilling activities or simply adding to your bucket list.

7 Sites That Need to be on Your Web Radar

We are living in a world of information overload these days so how do you know which websites and newsletters are worth your time? After scouring the e-world, I put together a list of my favorite online destinations that are perfect for fashion and lifestyle junkies.

1. Edition01:
Edition01 is the first online luxury experience designed to spotlight and sell limited edition fashion pieces from leading designers in one of a kind capsule collections. Collaborating with Vera Wang, Zac Posen, Narciso Rodriguez and Thakoon (to name a few), founders Estefania Lacayo and Jessica Wilpon Kamel offer you a unique shopping and lifestyle experience which has already been touted by Vogue, WWD and Marie Claire to name a few. Their minimalistic and inviting web site is blog style making it very easy to shop their collections which are grouped by designers and lifestyle categories (“Travel Boutique”). You can also have a personalized shopping experience by using their “My Edition” feature to track what you want, need and bought and get recommendations for building your perfect wardrobe. I love that Edition01 goes beyond just shopping and gives you behind the scenes fashion intel in their Journal, stocked with insider interviews, celebrity essentials and designer inspirations.
