Our Favorite Travel and Lifestyle Details in 2013

They say it’s the little things that count. Luxury is in the details which don’t necessarily have to be expensive. They can save time, make one feel pampered, and/or lend an air of exclusivity. Starting the new year, we thought we’d look at the best details we’ve experienced or read about in travel and lifestyle over the last year (most have been featured in past posts):

ü Station to refill water bottles in La Guardia, courtesy of Delta Airlines

ü Get a loaner designer handbag for a special evening out,  part of the all inclusive rate developed by KWE for client Casa Velas Boutique Hotel in Puerto Vallarta

ü Return of tableside food preparation (guacamole, flambes, duck press, etc.)

ü Warby Parker sunglasses given to passengers on Andre Balazs air charter STND and also sold at his hotels

ü Closet stocked with clothing for a guest’s arrival by a personal shopper based on a questionnaire at the St.Regis Bal Harbour

ü Blackboard at a restaurant naming a “client of the week” with the name, hometown, occupation, and favorite eats

ü Farmers market at Jet Blue terminal at JFK

ü (An easy one), a glass of complimentary champagne to every guest at lunch and dinner

ü Gold leaf on pasta – even brownies! – at Gold and Pepper, Miami (it feels so extravagant)

ü A bottle of nail polish with a manicure or pedicure included in the price so you can do touchups at home from Marilyn Monroe Spas
