Travel Essentials!

The past two weeks have been quite the whirlwind in terms of travel - and there are a few things I just cannot live without when I'm on the road! A mixture of beauty and fashion...here are my "must haves" for all of you jet setters out there!
One // Fresh pair of Nike's
There's nothing cute about running  through the airport in heels, so instead rock some black leggings with some fresh Nike's; you'll be comfortable AND have everyone envious of your casual style! (Thanks to my awesome hubby and NU being sponsored by Nike, I get to be the receiver of some pretty sweet shoes!)

Two // Batiste dry shampoo...travel size
I swear by this dry shampoo and the best part is that it's super affordable (I can get a 3-pack for under $10)!

Three // Burt's Bees Facial Towelettes
I keep these in my purse when I'm traveling...especially for long flights! When you can't wash your face, these are the next best thing. They leave your skin feeling fresh and smelling like grapefruit (which I love!) I also use them to remove my eye makeup - works fab!

Four // Leather Jacket
I always bring a staple leather jacket on trips with me. It pairs with lots of different outfits - good for a night out or a casual airport look with those cute black Nike's! The one below is from Forever 21...I LOVE their jackets because you don't have to sell your soul to own one!

Five // EOS Lip Balm
I don't know about you, but when I fly the dry air really does a number on my skin and LIPS! The EOS lip balm is my absolute favorite and I never leave home without it!

New England "Wish List!"

I've been making my "wish list" for places I hope to visit in New England one day. Of course, they're out-of-this-world amazing (with the price to match) and right in my back yard! I'll be featuring my top 3 so you can dream right along with me! In no particular order:

1. Winvian - Luxury Resort Cottages in Connecticut

This resort sits on 113-acres in the Litchfield Hills of CT and is complete with 5-star dining and a luxurious spa! There are 18 designed cottages; experience a night in a treehouse or log cabin complete with a fireplace, jacuzzi, and steam shower! There is an organic garden on the grounds and the dining menu is farm to table. There is a fabulous wine cellar as well! The feel I get from this place is very "rustic chic" and uber romantic...

2. Twin Farms - Vermont

This all inclusive resort and spa is located in charming Barnard, VT on 300 acres of lush hills. I'm obsessed with this place, and I think this might secretly be the dreamiest spot on my list (but shhh!) Some of the amenities include: customized breakfasts and lunches, cocktails and canapes in the afternoon, fine wines anytime, farm to table dinner, biking, hiking, sledding, snowshoeing, spa services, same day laundry service, and MUCH more. There are 10 separate cottages complete with fireplaces, screened porches, and jacuzzi tubs. The design is impeccable. (Did I mention this place is all inclusive?) Yea...totally a favorite.

3. White Elephant - Nantucket Island, MA 

This historic hotel, considered an island landmark, is located directly on the waterfront and in close proximity to unique boutiques and galleries. There are many different types of accommodations ranging from one bedroom suites and garden cottages to regular king bedrooms. All possess that lovely New England charm and decor. Dine at Brant Point Grill for a 5-star one-0f-a-kind experience!
