Travel MORE!

Let me tell you about Wyoming. Jackson Hole in particular. It is quite the charmer! The Grand Tetons follow you wherever you look and the views are spectacular. Although I have been there and nearby Montana to guest speak… I discovered it has gotten even more delicious and fun!

As you may know if you visit my blog I love ❤️ to travel and mix business trips with pleasure. The days of going home right away are over. I learned over time it’s the perfect thing to do. Even if I’ve been to that state or city before I reconnect with it even if it’s for a day.

Welcomed and greeted at the car door by the hotel the second I arrived. Just as it shows on the website. I couldn’t believe it.

Here are a few photos to highlight from my trip. Let’s start with the hotel. Hotel Jackson was absolutely the best place to stay.

I’ve stayed at other hotels but this is by far a 10 Star ⭐️ stay.

To my surprise I did not just see a couple of satin hangers but THIS! Lavender sachets on a hanger in the closet to keep things fresh!

Amenities galore!

Boxed in a beautiful western style white leather box. Filled with fragrant soap,shower cap, 2sets of ear plugs for sleep, refreshing wipe, cotton balls, Q-tips, nail file and did I mention the shampoo,conditioner and body lotions were by the luxe French brand L’Occitane?

I fell in love with the body oil! I had never tried it before. but I do love when I have a Gate departure at the Atlanta airport near the L’Occitane store. I know exactly what I’m going to do is buy more oil my next trip. It us heavenly! My skin felt so wonderful!

The fireplace 🔥 that you flicked with a switch was so relaxing, cozy and the right amount of warmth. Sleeping 😴 at night by it was simply the best!

Coffee & or tea? Both are for me! The hotel served all kinds of Numi organic tea. My favorites were… They also had a Nespresso coffee maker in the rooms. Gourmet frothy fabulous coffee at its best. I own an at home deluxe version of it so this was a welcome surprise and I felt so at home. They also had complimentary bottled water and sparkling water in the fridge.

Nespresso Decadent coffee! ☕️

The hotel also gave us a signature lip 👄balm and an eco friendly tote to enjoy and use to go out and about the city. They frown on plastic bags. I’m glad they do.

Our first night we enjoyed a pretty sweet vision fresh French macrons and a bottle of Panna still water 💦 served on a leather white tray.

Leaving the hotel and venturing the old west streets was so fun. The hotel staff and people all around greet you with the cutest greeting ever…. “HOWDY” I kinda got used to it. Especially when they greeted me with “Howdy Miss!” 😉

Stay tuned for Part 2 of my delicious adventures in the city and more.

Have you ever visited this neck of the woods for vacay, work or play?

Hotel Room Beauty!

I LOVE to travel. Travel changes our lives!

So recently I stayed at one of my fave hotels that you can always count on…Hampton Inn. While I love staying at a luxury hotel, I also love a good basic hotel. I look forward to staying there, know what to expect and know where everything is at the hotel.

The best part when time allows or I get to check in early or have a morning or night turn my room into a spa. Here is what I like to do and perhaps turn you on to some of these ideas too.

I always pack epsom salts, a luxe bath bomb and a mini bottle of bubble bath. You never know when you might just have time for a relaxing foot soak or bubble bath.

I also pack a hair conditioning treatment and turn the hotels shower cap and a blow dryer into a salon like treatment to my hair.

Next, I go to the hotel’s coffee pot and hot water carafe refreshment stand and get some hot water, lemon or lemon packet and pour myself a up of hot water. Drinking hot OR warm) lemon water is wonderful for hydration as well as for digestion especially at the beginning or end of the day.

I also get a kick out of the adorable paper cups and cup holders they have for guys and gals. Too cute!

Next, I love to wash my face before bed and treat myself to a face mask! Feels so good.

Sometimes I have forgotten to pack my makeup remover so I LOVE that the hotel as they usually have Makeup Wipes for us in the bathroom. So awesome and of course to the rescue!!!

I hate and HATE going to sleep with makeup on and have not done it since I was around 20 years old after a late date. Ya gotta clean your face girls!

They also have a variety of newspapers I can get caught up with on the national and international news in print.

When time allows I like to use their special soaps that look like this. The soap bar works wonders for deep cleaning makeup brushes in a pinch. Especially if they get really dirty while you’re making up on the road or you traveled with them dirty and have some sprare time to refresh and clean them.

It also makes a nice bath bar. I love to rub those soapy bumps on my butt and thighs! Revs up circulation too!

I also like to use the honey packets from the breakfast area for tea as a hydrating skin softening treat in my room and add rest in a cup of hot chamomile tea before bed.

As you CAN create a spa in your room and pamper yourself when you travel for work or play too. Take care of your body and it will take care of you!

Happy Travels!

PS

My husband benefits from the above too. HE too has gotten in on the action!
