Beauty Travel Tips from Hyatt Place

How can you look your best while on the road? From the initial packing and planning stages to the moment you arrive at your hotel room, here are beauty travel tips from lifestyle vlogger, Jessica Harlow, of the Hyatt Place's new Seamless Travel Series.

  1. Be realistic. Only bring what you're actually planning on using.

  2. Separate your products into makeup categories, with individual plastic bags.

  3. Stay powder shatter-proof. If you're planning on checking your makeup inside your luggage, use cotton balls for a little added cushioning.

  4. Invest in a travel bag to store toiletries.

  5. Look your best, feel your best. Make sure to visit your hotel gym and boost your endorphins.

  6. Make this list and check it twice!

London Celebrities Sing City’s Praises in New Travel Videos

Some P.R. gigs are pretty cushy—like getting publicity for London. I mean, all you have to do is write a sentence using the words pub, West End, Tate Modern, mews, and—well, you had me at pub. But the boffins of ballyhoo at Visit London, the city’s official tourism website, and its parent, London & Partners, have done themselves proud with a series of video odes to the capital from some of London’s best-known celebs.

Chef Gordon Ramsay (above) waxes poetic about curry shops in Brick Lane and tells viewers the name of his favorite café for a “fry-up” (local slang for a full English breakfast). Actress, model, and Sixties icon Twiggy (below) goes gaga over London’s shopping scene. Mayor Boris Johnson recounts cycling to the London Borough of Hackney to enjoy bangers and mash at a local pub. Actress Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous, The Wolf of Wall Street) rhapsodizes over the duck ponds, statues, and tree-lined paths of Holland Park, “one of the best-kept secrets in London.” More videos from other Londoners can be found at visitlondon.com/story.

Three Words on How To Travel Better

updated5-travel-better-updatedgif

We asked a team of experts in a recent Twitter Chat for their travel rules of the road, which we’ve been revealing in a series of blog posts. We asked our panel to reveal how they travel better in only three words.

Designer, Chris Benz (@cmbenz) must be a T+L-type traveler because he lives by the words: “Carry, On, Only.”

T+L’s Travel News Editor, Jennifer Flowers (@JennFlowers), is traveling the world and trying food that she encounters in new cultures, so naturally, Imodium, Pepto-Bismol, and Tums are necessities in her suitcase.

T+L’s Director of Editorial Product Development, Peter Frank (@pfrank1), makes sure Ambien is available for long-flights (assuming there wasn’t a flight delay and he met the T+L team at the bar first!).

How do you travel better? We asked a team of experts in a recent Twitter Chat for their rules of the road, which we're revealing in a series of blog posts. We started off the chat by asking our panel for the apps and websites that help them travel more efficiently. Our T+L Lifestyle Editor, Shane Mitchell (@shanegoesforth), loves Google Translate to help her ask for necessities—like WiFi, of course. 

Our Editorial Assistant, Nikki Ekstein (@nikkiekstein) includes Spotify Premium among her must-have travel essentials. A-List Agent, Joel Zack of Heritage Tours Private Travel (@HeritageTours), has clearly learned a lesson from high roaming charges and uses WhatsApp for texting. Smart agent!

Kobe vs. Messi Make a Hilarious Comeback in Turkish Airlines' Latest Video

Turkish Airlines loves taking the stage for viral videos. Last year, its commercial featuring Kobe Bryant trying to outdo Barcelona soccer player Lionel Messi scored big on YouTube (over 106 million page views and counting). The hilarious campaign also earned them a T+L SMITTY award for Best Overall Use of Social Media in the global airline category.

Now, Turkish Airlines is attempting to recreate the magic with their latest video, once again featuring Bryant and Messi in a face-off, quite literally. In “The Selfie Shootout” the two athletes send pictures of themselves while traveling the globe (walking the Great Wall of China; scuba diving in the Maldives) to one another—the takeaway being that Turkish Airlines can help “widen your world.” With a video this funny, we can’t disagree.
