Yesterday was my sister's birthday and to celebrate we'll be keeping up with a longtime tradition enjoying a little "staycation" at one of our favorite hotels in the world, The Carlyle. Before I had my apartment in New York, The Carlyle was like a home away from home in the city, so it is always special to be back. Whether for afternoon tea, late night drinks, or a short weekend visit. Monica and I plan on fully committing ourselves to the staycation - lounging in robes, sipping Champagne, and munching croissants.
Plans for the weekend? Why not have a little staycation of your own?
No need to be at a hotel, you can go on vacation right in your own home. The key is disconnecting from your usual routine and creating that feeling of getting away. Try ordering breakfast in bed, an at-home spa day, fill the house with flowers, unplug your alarm, go media free, stay in a bathrobe well past noon, play music, read magazines, eat at a new restaurant, implement cocktail hour, dress up or dress down (if that feels more like vacation to you). Have fun, enjoy.
Happy weekend, happy staycation!
