Travel Essentials For The World Traveler (2024)

  • Liz Lyons

    Michele, I appreciate these suggestions. I typically have some sort of lounge membership and a bunch of credit cards, but have balked at the $700 annual fee too. If I traveled these days the way I used to, I am sure it would be well worth it. Still, I do like to travel comfortably — I was never one of those youth hostel types. My standard hotels were the Ritz, George v, Excelsior, Hassler, Claridge, etc., so I truly like the way you do things. I hate to suffer and would rather stay home than travel too frugally. I am taking notes all the time from your blogs and vlogs as I think our esthetic is similar. Thanks again for all of it. 😊💖

    I gushed in the youtube comments but will continue here – the foundation is a dream and pushed all my others aside. I’m 72, dry skin and very (very) fair yet I was able to find a shade that gives my skin life snd is flawless no matter how ling my day is. I also love the cleanser -it makes my skin look and feel so good which I’ve never said about a cleanser. I can’t wait for your reviews of the rest of the skincare.

    I ordered the foundation this week! I’m 45, normal skin with a shiny t-zone. Fingers crossed! I don’t shop foundation frequently but couldn’t resist a new Prada product!!

    Such lovely words and very well said. I can hear your love for the collection and Pharrell through your words. I also like the “damoflage”. As the daughter of a former military member, it brings back some good memories.

    Love what you chose!
    Did you see that LV & Pharrell have invited an indigenous person to collaborate with them for a collection? I’m sorry, their name has slipped my mind. I’m so excited to see what they come up with.

    I love that you made a goal on ONE pull up. Those are the goals I like. I never spend on myself really for “nicer” things. I can’t go and buy luxury purses or clothes which I would love. Just can’t happen. Sadly. But , I will be spending on skincare. La mer (my wish list) and a nice pair of shoes or boots. Those will be my luxury items. As for goals. Mine is plainly “MOVE” my body. Just walk ! Thank you for a wonderful 2023 (and past ) can’t wait for 2024. Also that vlog of your trip. So fun Xo

    Hi Michele! Lovely blog post. I really enjoyed it because I adore this time of year! I love the tradition of you drinking a hot cup of coffee (with your Xmas bear!) & opening advent calendars. I look forward to it & like you said, just adds a little special cheer to my day :)One other calendar if you’re into K-beauty/J-beauty is from Stylevana!! That would be something different & fun.
    I shopped the Sephora sale, probably buying too much, but oh well. I got Natasha Denona’s Xenon palette, Huda’s Grunge palette, some nice highlighters by Charlotte Tilbury, Tom Ford & Bare Minerals & a few other goodies I won’t bore you with, lol. Have a great wknd & can’t wait for mishmas♥️

    This bag went to the top of my wish list as soon as I got the email from Loewe. It’s definitely a new classic. I am of the quiet luxury type. My row bags get the most use and my summer Loewe bag. Squeeze is just what I’ve been looking for.

    Catching a whiff of a perfume can send me deep into my memory banks. I love perfume and my collection has grown exponentially over the past 3 or 4 years. At last count I was pushing 80. My latest is Tutu by Gritti which is much more floral than what I normally gravitate towards. It reminds me of Amazing Grace which I wore many many years ago except Tutu is much more sophisticated. I’m a sucker for a gourmand fragrance. Amber and vanilla anything will call my name. Some of my favorite perfumes to wear of late are Coffee Addict by Theodoros Kalotinis, Vicious Cacao by Maison Tahite, Bake by Akro, Nuit et Confidences by Goutal, Apple Brandy and Love Don’t be Shy Eau Fraiche by Killian and L’Interdit Rouge by Givenchy. As I look at this list, I’m sitting here thinking about so many more that I love. Hard to choose favorites! This is a wonderful topic. Thank you.

  • Liz Lyons

    What a lovely and welcome topic. I too have a perfume “wardrobe”, but not 75! Mine is closer to 40. For years I wore Houbigant’s Chantilly. My dad was a perfumer, so we had blotters with all kinds of scents all over our house. My mother wore Joy and left me a few bottles that I now treasure. I love Bal a Versailles and Charles Blair of Paris, but I am a Guerlain girl and own a dozen of those that I rotate now. I still wear Chantilly from time to time. I am intrigued by that Sicilian Leather and would like to try it. I am also going to try Izia la Nuit, just love the name. Thanks for this, Michele. I think you are closer to genius than madness, LOL.

      Thanks Liz! Wow, that’s amazing that your dad was a perfumer. You must have a very sophisticated scent palette! I definitely have to dabble more into Guerlain.

  • Gaynor Witts

    I absolutely enjoy different fragrances in different seasons. Each winter i look forward to Grand Soir by MFK, it’s so spicy and tobacco, just perfect for cold weather, my knitwear smells of it! It’s too much in summer when i’m living in white flower fragrances or my beautiful Another 13 from Le Labo. I love having many different ones to choose from and always feel like it’s finishing my outfit and matching a mood for my day ❤️

      Oh I just got a sample of Grand Soir and I LOVE IT!! It’s so warm and made me think of winter too!And I’ll have to try Another 13. Thank you for the recommendations!

  • Louise Sharpy

    It’s funny, from someone that can never buy anything ..this is more , to me, do I buy it because I want everyone to think I have money ? Or would I buy this if I could ..I don’t see this fitting in really to either. If I were to buy, it would only be for the LOVE of the product. Now since I don’t own a lot of designer brands , would I be in any of these categories? Interesting tho for sure. I do love the way they categorize the two tho. If I were to be able to afford luxury , it’s not to say “hey i bought this so I’m fancy” or “ i can afford it “ it’s for the love of how it’s made, how it feels on, or if it’s something I love to see Quiet luxury isn’t like a label for me. Interesting read tho. Would these be for cars we drive as well? ? I see the difference tho for sure Great read for sure. Thank you

    I do definitely tend toward quiet luxury — although I will still occasionally make the “concert t-shirt” type of purchase, something that blatantly yells, “I was there!” I would say that I take quiet luxury one step further, though. I tend to prefer luxury that will last. I’ll spend money on a pair of shoes that will last for years, rather than fresh flowers. When I buy luxury makeup, it’s almost always in classic colors (mostly neutrals) and applications.

    My style is gravitating more towards quiet luxury. Not necessarily luxury bags or shoes (although I do own a couple) but enjoying the expensive hand soap and candles, those little luxuries that only I know. I want to enjoy them for me, not just for others to see. xoxo

    My skin is so much more textured (read: large pores) than yours appears in the closeup top of page, I’ve forever been leery of all highlighters, as they exaggerate the pores without fail. But this looks lovely on your already-beautiful skin, Michele!

  • Liz Lyons

    I ordered the Peau de Rose and am looking forward to it. Your trip to Italy was lovely and I am now considering adding at least Milan and Venice to my trip to France next year. I like the variety in your YT vlogs, Michele. And the fact that you cover luxury items that most people do not. While I can’t buy every luxury item I want, I do purchase some strategically on a regular basis and appreciate seeing them on a real person.

    I don’t know what to journal. I literally live such a boring life due to my chronic illness and chronic pain that I don’t know what to journal about. I don’t want to journal about my chronic conditions because that’s depressing to me. I literally just stopped writing here and looked up How To Journal lol. It actually was helpful, there are journal prompts. I do have goals, it’s just hard because of how I feel changes day to day and I can’t count on myself to feel physically well enough to do something each day that I get frustrated and depressed. It’s a lot for me to just do the dishes, take a shower, etc much less do something extra like start a YouTube channel or post more on ig. I’m lucky though, my husband is very supportive and he said just try to post once a week. And that’s what I’m going to try to do.

    Wow Michele! I feel inspired now to start exercising. I used to always take exercise in school. When I moved to the US I took Physical Ed and realized most girls didn’t. I was kind of shocked. I don’t smoke anymore either! But I don’t like running on Rt.66. This Covid made me gain way too much. Moreover, I love to read. Thus the weight gain. Am not sure where to begin. If I had my way I’d have a private instructor. Hah! Any suggestions are always welcome. Thanks Michele.
