LA (AND BEYOND): ALAS! MOURNING THE LOSS OF A DRYER [T3]

By Nora Zelevansky / October 29th, 2010

Don't even bother calling the paramedics.  Just call the morgue.  My beloved T3 travel dryer has officially died.  Capoot.

Bye bye. Adios. Peace out.

I never had the slick newer design like the one above, but I'm sure it's even more incredible than my old one, since it uses all this new technology.  Doesn't it even look amazing?  Sigh.  That thing traveled with me from Bora Bora to India and back again!

Anyway, now I need some dryer feedback.  What are your favorite hair dryers, especially for travel?

Cause there's nothing to heal old wounds like moving on.

PALM SPRINGS/VA/MT/VT: THE BEST ARTISANAL RESORT PRODUCTS AND THE BEST WAY TO SAY ADIEU TO A YEAR WELL DONE

By Nora Zelevansky / December 18th, 2009

I know.  I know.  I keep apologizing and then being bad again, but I'm off on yet another jaunt and will not be LINTing Christmas week.  Actually, that's sort of not true.  I'll be LINTing in the sense that I'll be scouting new finds to share (though I still owe some Pittsburgh and NYC stuff), but I won't be posting regularly until January 2, 2010.

Anyway, I thought I'd leave you with a link to my latest little story in Travel & Leisure (see above) about resorts that farm or crush and create their own beauty and food products.  Short and sweet, just like me and my attention span.  And my patience.  And my fuse.  And my family.  And the time it takes me to devour french fries.  And the time it takes me to read a trashy detective novel.  And the time that will pass between now and my next post in 2010.

So, happy holidays of all kinds, folks.  Good tidings to all and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!  (I know I already have my sequined number picked out).  Well, I mean one only has so many sequin dresses from which to choose, right?

Love ya.  Mean it.

LA (AND BEYOND): CRUMPLED TWENTY

The Best Link Today:

Must toot my own today, as today's Daily Candy Travel by moi (edited by P.) is a round-up of resorts around the world where you can pick, pluck, catch, choose and ogle your own ingredients for high-end meals and spa treatments.

Above is an image from a porch of one such hotel, The Inn at Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina, which I think is just heavenly.  The below image of one of their bathrooms makes me even happier.  I mean, seriously, I LOVE a good hotel bathroom and this one looks all white and bleached out and clean and springy and lovely.

Sign me up for it all!
