Things to do in NYC this fall include the New York Marathon.

The ING New York City Marathon is one of the world's great road races, drawing more than 100,000 applicants annually. The race attracts many world-class professional athletes for the more than $600,000 in prize money. *Despite the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Mayor Bloomberg has announced that New York Marathon will happen on Sunday, November 4 as many small businesses are relying on the income generated from travelers and competitors entering the city for the race.  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #1)

Luxury Watch Collection Guide

I was wondering how you go about starting a luxury watch collection? I have a few pretty vintage pieces, but I have no idea if they're collection-worthy or not. A quick google search on luxury watch collections turned up guides from askmen.com, Rolex's website, a couple watch stores and the luxury lifestyle and travel guide Travel with Carnet. While all were informative, they did skew towards men's watches. I can only assume that it's the same for women's watches, but I feel like there are more costume jewelry pieces available for women--what are some key things I should be keeping an eye out when purchasing vintage luxury watches?  (Oct 3, 2012 | post #1)

new york fashion week insider restaurant recommendations

Fashion Week (or rather, Fashion Month) is one of my favorite events of the year. Traipsing through all the major trend-setting cities of the world, gawking at the amazing designs of top fashion houses, rubbing shoulders with celebrities and fashion elite while sipping bubbly–what’s not to like? Obviously, I’m in town for the clothing and accessories–but a girl’s gotta eat (sometimes). A handy guide to local hot spots, especially the ones popular for fashion types, ensures I’m in the right place at the right time. The fact that many of these places also offer lighter fare doesn’t hurt. Instead of relying on some crowd-sourced review sites, I prefer getting my information from people who have similar tastes. The newsletter I received from Travel with Carnet provides travel insider lists of places to eat and clubs to visit for each of the major Fashion Week cities–just in time for my trip. Similarly, other luxury travel sites are likely to provide excellent suggestions, but nothing beats the convenience of having the information delivered straight to my inbox.  (Sep 13, 2012 | post #1)

With summer rapidly coming to an end, we're gearing up for the last quick (or not-so-quick) vacation. Trips of any length can be very stressful, so it's good to have well-versed and well-traveled persons provide guides and reviews (Trip Advisor is great to some pre-trip research) to streamline the process. From tips on booking hotels to how to keep clothing wrinkle-free while packing to what to order while dining out in Paris and how to make sure the Murano you're eyeing is authentic, travel insider tips (such as the ones from Travel with Carnet) go a long way to minimize stress. Do your research before you leave, and you'll save money, time, and energy, and ensure you have a trip to remember (for all the right reasons).  (Aug 23, 2012 | post #1)
