Happy New Year! This is the last installation of My Favorite Travel Things Giveaway and so I’m putting together a few of my favorite things in this prize pack.
My # 1 favorite hotel amenity are the products are the St Regis Hotels. Remede is a great product line that is used not only in the St Regis hotels, but in many Luxury Collection Hotels and spas around the world. I love their shampoo and body wash and actually buy them for my home. I’m giving away a travel-sized prize pack that includes shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, a loofa and lavender satchel from the St Regis Hotel. Another amenity I love at the St. Regis Hotel are the slippers. They’re my favorite hotel slippers. So I’m giving away a pair of those too.
Another travel favorite is iTunes. I couldn’t survive all my long flights without some great music and a few videos. So I’m also giving away a $50 iTunes Gift Card. One of the best things I downloaded in 2012 was season 1 of Homeland.
Another thing I can’t travel without is a pashmina shawl. It’s a great way to avoid a chill when you suddenly get cold. I always pack mine when I fly – you just never know when a plane is going to be freezing. People are often surprised to hear that I use my pashmina in Thailand – one of the warmest places you can visit all year round. However, after spending time outside in 90 or 100+ degree heat, it can feel extra cold in air conditioned restaurants, hotels, etc… Thailand is also where I buy my pashminas and I have about 2 dozen or more of them now. If you visit Thailand, make sure you pick up a few – they’re an amazing bargin. (Don’t pay more than $12 USD for one and if you buy several you can get them for about $8-10 USD each. I bought 6 recently at MBK and paid 250 bhat each or $8 USD.) This prize pack also includes a pashmina shawl from Thailand. What is a pashmina? Pashmina is cashmere fabric made from the hair of certain long-haired breeds of goats. The word pashmina can also refer to a particular style of shawl, generally with knotted fringes, woven out of pure cashmere or a blend of cashmere and silk. Don’t worry guys – they can be worn by men!
The other thing I really love on the road is my favorite Starbucks drink – the Cool Lime Refresher. It’s so refreshing. Recently, when I checked into the brand new W Bangkok the hotel had a Cool Lime Refresher waiting for me in the room! That was a treat and such personalized service! So I’m also including a $25 Starbucks gift card so you can try a Cool Lime Refresher or your own favorite drink.
