One Of The Kookiest Hotels (If You Can Even Call It That) We’ve Seen

Speaking of kooky hotel things, there’s a new London establishment that’s one of the more bizarre lodging concepts we’ve seen. The Jacques Townhouse isn’t quite a hotel—it only has two guest rooms—but is more of an “Alice in Wonderland” experience. The place is done up in quirky white plaster molds with fairy tale-like trees sprouting from the floor, balls of tulle as decoration, and tea sets galore. Bonus: There’s a room filled with wedding cakes (random). The owner himself looks like he walked out of a Victorian novel with his top hat and long coat. Weirdly, we’ve had this dream before. Check out some more pics after the jump. [Style Bubble] Keep reading »

Flying Pasties Protect Your Privates From Airport Security

Flying somewhere this weekend? Don’t forget your pasties! Many airports are now using full-body scanners which give bored airport security officers a lot to look at, including hidden weapons and drugs — and your naughty bits. That’s why a company called Flying Pasties is selling specially designed orange stickers for your nipples and pubic area, so that security can still do their job without being able to deduce the size of your areola or your preferred pubic hair shape. I’ve yet to fly through one of the airports with these fancy full-body scanners, but I’m not modest and would never bother to put on special pasties so that a pervy security officer couldn’t get a glimpse of my strawberry kisses. Besides, maybe showing a little nip will decrease the chance of having my lotion confiscated. [Flying Pasties via Jaunted] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Will Our Marriage Survive Our First Road Trip Together?

I can hardly believe it, but Drew, my husband, and I will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary in just five days. Has a whole year really gone by since the day we said “I do”? Actually, no, because neither of us said “I do.” I think what we really said to the Rabbi when he married us was: “We will say “yes” to whatever you ask us as long as we never, ever, ever have to plan another wedding again! Also, let’s wrap this thing up so we can go drink champagne and eat cannoli cake!” Anyway, according to the calendar, almost a whole year has gone by since that day, and, I’m happy to say: so far so good. But all that could change next week when Drew and I go on our first ever road trip together to celebrate our anniversary. Keep reading »

Sleepover In Diane Von Furstenberg’s Room!

The lady who gets to stay in the Diane Von Furstenberg-designed suite at Claridge’s hotel in London is one lucky girl. DVF just unveiled her creation and it’s pure Furstenberg class, filled with deco-inspired furniture, a regal marble fireplace, and the designer’s iconic prints in a myriad of splashy colors. In the bathroom: DVF bathrobes, so you’ll definitely want to be stealing those. Or, you could just buy yourself one of her wrap dresses for the same price as a night in her hotel room.

Money 101: 5 Tips For Traveling On The Cheap

The temperatures in much of the country are higher than tween hormones at a Justin Bieber concert, and at this point in the summer, my mind is at the beach whether the rest of me is or not.

So, when it comes to planning a getaway, how can you order your guilt-free margarita and drink it, too? Not to worry, with the following tips from Debi Hayes, Master Cruise Counselor with Vacation Planning of Atlanta, you can blow town without blowing the budget faster than you can say “on the rocks!” Keep reading »

Check This Out: Colette Ville CD Compilation And Mini Guide

For its latest music release, Parisian cool-kids boutique Colette presents you with Colette Ville, a compilation of too cool for school beats from around the world. If you’re the type who knows what Naag is, subscribes to The Gentlewoman, or has Rodarte on Google Alerts, this is one to check out. In tandem with the CD (this is like a donut-shaped MP3; don’t worry, it’s also on iTunes), Colette has set up a special micro site. Today, we’re devoting our procrastination efforts here, listening to sample tracks from indie groups from hot cities like Seoul, Stockholm, Sao Paulo, and Paris. (Check out the electro track by Diamond Dog in the Berlin section!) Best of all, a bunch of the artists have given Colette a concise list of their local favorites. So now you know what to check out the next time you’re in Tokyo (we wish!) or you might even find an uncovered hipster gem in your own area. [Colette] Keep reading »

WTF! Dirty Underwear Is For Hiding Your Valuables?

The folks over at Sears sure do have a sense of humor. You see, carrying your cash and valuables when traveling adds another level to an already stressful situation. Will the hotel maid go snooping in your luggage? Can someone on the plane slip their hand into your carry-on bag while you’re asleep? Will TSA somehow grab something out of your tote while scanning for explosives? (I still think airport security in Vegas lifted a pair of Cavalli sunglasses when I wasn’t looking.) Well, Sears is selling the perfect solution for hiding your money and valuables while traveling. Dirty underwear! These specially designed drawers have a secret compartment in the fly for stashing whatever you like. But the real kicker is the strategically placed skid marks. Here’s what Sears says about the Brief Safe: “Even the most hardened burglar or most curious snoop will ‘skid’ to a screeching halt as soon as they see them. (Wouldn’t you?)” Um, yes, but I don’t go snooping through people’s stuff anyway. [$12.99, Sears] Keep reading »

The Lying Down Game: An Unconventional Way To Document Your Travels

You’re backpacking through Europe, snapping photo after photo of historical landmarks and luscious scenery, when suddenly you realize: all of your pictures look the same. You’re sick of standing awkwardly in front of museums. Why don’t you just lie down? Click. The latest travel trend is the Lying Down Game (LDG). Started by Gary Clarkson and Christian Langdon, the game has taken off with travelers all over the world and you can now see tourists having someone take a picture of them lying on the ground almost everywhere. There are even rules to the game: The palms of your hands must be flat against your sides, and the tips of your toes must point toward the ground. You can’t even lie on your back: your face must be down. Weird, right? The point is to add a little humor to your traveling adventures and to confuse onlookers. Imagine someone’s shock when you ask politely, “Excuse me. Can you take a picture for me?” and proceed to lie face down in front of them at a scenic mountain overlook. Just keep your mouth closed — the ground is dirty. [Lying Down Game] Keep reading »

Here’s One Way To Sleep With Models

For guys who want to get with supermodels, they may have a new way to up their league: Book a room at Fashion 26, the new “model hotel” located in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. Geared towards working fashionistas, Fashion 26 offers special deals to modeling agencies and has no limit or fees on how many beauties can share a room.

Non-models can stay there, too. The hotel has packages for “normal” people who, according to Guest of a Guest, “are promised at least a shoulder rub with models.” Sounds kind of like the premise for a bad porno movie if you ask us. Then again, if you’re looking to live out your Cindy Crawford fantasies, be our guest. (Although, we can promise you that she and just about any other top model won’t be booked there.)
