Her an her husband are Exclusive Resorts members and while I am often dragging my children on my travels, Whitney has perfected the girls’ getaway. She is covering the LA “beat” for Luxury Travel Mom. Look for her stories here and keep up with her on her own snarky and hilarious blog The Carpool Confessions. Follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

Fashion Week in New York just defines “in the know” and “uber chic”. I was thrilled to get an invite from Mercedes Benz and She Buys Cars to attend the Red Dress Collection show this week. This wasn’t your typical show, as in, Anna Wintour was not in the front row and it wasn’t just one designer. A collection of celebrities, former celebrities and pseudo celebrities (Dr. Oz’s daughter?) strutted the runway in red dresses by different designers all […] Continue reading →

Sundance Film Festival

This is a guest post by the fabulous Mrs. DJ Duckworth, the newest Luxury Travel Mom. The way she travels makes me look like a hobo, and her background in TV Journalism makes her a natural fit for this site. She recently took in The Sundance Film Festival, for the sixth time. She gives the scoop on how to get Sundance Film Festival Tickets, what to wear and where to spa. You can make it happen whether you’re a newbie or if you have “people”. After six years at the Sundance […] Continue reading →

Gansevoort Turks

Looking to get away from the snow, ice and your darling offspring? The Gansevoort in Turks and Caicos is just what the doctor ordered. Why Turks and Caicos? Everything is done in dollars, English is the official language, it’s just 3 hours from New York AND it’s the third largest coral reef. We had breakfast in snowy New York and lunch on the beach last week. Need any more reasons? Exactly. Why The Gansevoort? This sleek white resort just oozes urban chic and sophistication. The […] Continue reading →

DJ shot

DJ brings you stories that celebrate the joy of life. As a small town girl, she spent years wanting to get out of Arkansas and explore the world. She did it. DJ has been reporting and writing about life since she could form letters and speak to anyone who would listen.

Note: You have to wear them A LOT to get your return on […] Continue reading →

Glossybox review

You would think I’d have nailed this packing thing by now. I do it several times a month and still I struggle every time. Thanks to Delta’s habit of canceling or delaying flights on a whim I now pack carry on only. This means all of my toiletries have to conform to TSA regulations. Really, it depends on the airport. International airports are surprisingly way more serious about the whole clear bag thing – I’m looking at you London. So here’s the problem, […] Continue reading →

Four Seasons Resort Nevis

As I write this, I am sitting at the base of the mountain in Vermont in eight degree weather. Trust me, I don’t expect you to feel sorry for me. But working on today’s Luxury Travel Blog Network round up is giving me a serious case of travel lust. Mrs. O spent a weekend with VIP Ski in the French Alps, Katie had a romantic trip to the Four Seasons Nevis where Mr. LTM and I had our honeymoon 16 years ago and the effervescent Nadine trotted off to Hamilton Island and stayed in […] Continue reading →

Ocean House Rhode Island

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.”  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson I’m not sure that Emerson was referring to cocktails, but that would only be because he had never bellied up to the bar in the private club room at the Ocean House in Rhode Island. While on assignment for Greenwich Magazine, part of my job was to take Dean’s Mean Martini Class. I’m pretty sure I got an A. I mean, I put back like four different […] Continue reading →

Curtain Bluff Tennis Week

Tennis anyone? Being a tennis addict I have always wanted to go to tennis camp. I tried one once in New York, there were no TVs, no champagne and lousy pros. The property name is being withheld to protect the innocent. Curtain Bluff in Antigua is in another league. Ignore for the moment that the courts overlook the tranquil waters of the Caribbean Sea and that the champagne is free, really, free. A few times each year they host a Tennis Week and when they asked me to review it, I had to […] Continue reading →

Safe Winter Driving

This article is sponsored by State Farm. Most of the money I made has already been spent on flares and jumper cables. Road trips don’t just happen in the summer, but all of you traveling moms already know that. With temperatures dipping in to “clearly we’ve pissed off Mother Nature and now we are all going to die” zones it’s time to think about the junk in your trunk. I’m a safety nut. I have a fire extinguisher in every bedroom, when I was a kid I had an […] Continue reading →
