WEEKLY CHECKLIST OF WHAT’S TRENDING IN TRAVEL, FOOD, FASHION & MORE
You ever have that annoying feeling that you’re missing something? Well, no matter how bad that feels, it feels even worse to actually miss something, like a hot new collaboration or overnight health food craze. The really important things. That’s why every week we’re bringing you a checklist of all the buzziest pieces, products and places popping up in everyone’s feeds, photos and conversations.
In this week’s hot list, we’re excited to offer you a nice selection of luggage for every trip you take. No more freaking out about which carry-on to board your next flight with—have your pick! A sizzling new eatery across the pond madem the cut as well, and city hopping through Brazil just got cheaper. We’re all smiles over here and once you’re done reading, you will be too. Happy Friday!
FLY ALL OVER BRAZIL FOR LESS THAN $300
Globetrotting through Brazil just got super cheap, and easy! Who wouldn’t want to move through sunny cities like Brasilia and Rio De Janiero? We have found a way to make that happen for you. See how much we love you? Azul Airlines offers an all-inclusive pass that lets you travel around this glorious country and see all the beauty and culture it has to offer. The airline is letting you wing around Brazil on as many flights as you can cram into 10 or 21 days, for as little as $299 (book by November 30 for travel through December 15). Check it out HERE
FEATURED RESTAURANT: THE LOCKHART
Maryelbone, London-based eatery, The Lockhart, serves up a nice selection of comfort food you’ll want to try the next time you’re in town. Items like smoked ribs, shrimp & grits, crawfish, and southern fried chicken, pay homage to the Mississippi-born chef/owner, Brad McDonald’s, southern roots, and will more than satisfy your taste buds. Grub is not the only thing The Lockhart does well, the restaurant’s interior has a clean very classic aesthetic, vintage furniture scored at local antique shops create a relaxed atmosphere that you just might want to kick it in, all day long. Do it!
We have all done this before, tearing apart our closets looking for that perfect bag to take on our next getaway. Some were too small, others too big, or simply just not cute enough. Everything from planning your airport outfit to strategically choosing the location of your hotel is uber important for Globetrotting Stilettos—selecting the right luggage is too! Here are a few of our favorite picks.
THREE DAY TRIP

Who would have thought that there was bag out there named the Globe-Trotter? Ladies, this suitcase was made for you. Tote it to places like Italy and Barcelona, our European style sisters will appreciate your luxury pick.
THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN NOVEMBER
Napa Valley features Calistoga Ranch, a winery-inspired property surrounded by 157 wooded acres. Enjoy views of a babbling creek and mossy oaks from treatment rooms equipped with open-air garden showers and private mineral water tubs.
The cold winds of Breckenridge, Colorado are where you want to be this November. Last season, 447 inches of snow fell here. Inspired? Visit this ski resort to surf some slopes!
Head to Hawaii. Specifically Oahu, advertised as the heart of Hawaii and sometimes called “The Gathering Place,” Oahu certainly lives up to its name. The third largest Hawaiian island is home to the majority of Hawaii’s diverse population. Try out the clear blue waters of Kailua Beach and send some sun back home while you’re at it.
HOTEL MUSE OUTFIT INSPIRATION
Hotel Palacio Belmonte was used an inspiration for this outfit, where original frescoes and nearly 4,000 hand- painted blue-and-white tiles live alongside bold contemporary paintings. Palacio Belmonte was built in 1449 on the fortress walls of São Jorge Castle, featuring ten suites—five of them with sprawling terraces overlooking the red-tiled roofs of the Alfama and the Tagus River in Portugal. Between the Palacio Belmonte and this outfit inspiration, it is the perfect blend of old and new. The modern, lady-like pieces featured in this lay are available and ready to wear next season. You in?
