Saturday, I had some time during the day to roam the city! I set off on foot from our hotel making my way down 9th Ave. I stopped to a Starbucks to pick up my favorite pumpkin spice latte with soy over ice. Mm! I couldn’t easily make plans…

Link Love:Destination Pretty: Elysian Hotel Yoga Retreat With Mandy Ingber

Elysian Hotel in Chicago is hosting Mandy Ingber, celebrity yoga instructor for a weekend yoga retreat.  I will be at Fashion Week, but I'm keeping my eyes out to attend the next one.  I love Chicago and it's the perfect time of year before the brutal cold hits the Windy City. 

The new ultra-luxe hotel
is hosting a restorative
three-day/two-night Yoga Retreat Weekend, September 10 – 12, 2010.
Ingber will teach the same wellness principles and yoga poses that have made
her Hollywood classes a sought-after source of inspiration for legions of fans,
including well-toned stars such as Jennifer Aniston, Brooke Shields and Helen
Hunt.

Ingber will share her motivational approach with aspiring
and accomplished yoga practitioners over a relaxing weekend highlighted by
three yoga sessions, smoothie breaks and an afternoon spa treatment.

Who:     Celebrity Yoga Instructor Mandy
Ingber

What:   Yoga Retreat Weekend at the Elysian hotel

The incredibly talented fashion designer, Betsey Johnson, has recently added a new title to her resume: interior designer. Betsey was handpicked by the Plaza Hotel (likely the most famous hotel in NYC) to design an Eloise-themed suite. For those who don’t know, Eloise is the imaginative and whimsical children’s book character who frequently adventures through her atypical home, a suite in The Plaza. After finding this information out, I thought “Who better to design the suite than Betsey herself?”. Personally, I believe that she has the biggest “inner child” in the fashion industry. Betsey said it best herself when she told Styleist : “I do kind of seem that am the perfect kid to do this. My reputation is of being pink and fun – I think they got my brand.”

After all, both Eloise and Betsey like to stir up some trouble and break all social norms and rules. While Eloise is pressing every floor button and letting her turtle loose in The Plaza’s luxurious halls, Betsey Johnson is still using pink zebra print (despite it being one of the worst prints in history, yet she still gets away with using it) and does cartwheels down rectangular runways, despite being 67 years old.

The 18th floor suite features candy striped walls, gilded gold mirrors and seating, zebra flooring, a King sized bed with oodles of pillows, various quotes from the book painted on the walls and lots of pink florals. The suite costs a hefty $995 per night, however includes a roster of swag to take home with you. A monogrammed bathrobe, a framed photo of you and your guests in the suite, the Eloise book, an Eloise camera and a $100 gift certificate to the Eloise store inside the hotel are included with the fees.

I don’t think I could name a better place to release your inner child while maintaining your fabulousity when you are staying in the Big Apple!
