TRAVEL | SHE GETS AROUND

When I'm not flying around the globe opening new Flywheel studios, I love to travel for leisure. If I could go anywhere, these are the places I'd choose.

It’s a toss-up between Florence and Paris as my favorite cities outside of New York.  Paris is simply enchanting. Its elegance and sophistication is always inspiring and Florence is a jewel box; It’s art on every corner and the food is to die for. Enough said.

In Paris I to eat at  Frenchie. Gregory Marchand's food is incredibly inventive but so simple and delicious. Don't be afraid of the five-course tasting menu - what might seem advanced is always perfect. My favorite shops in Paris are Robert Clergerie (I'm obsessed with his shoes) and Isabel Marant

It's really hard to play favorites in Florence when it comes to eating, but I love Trattoria Cammillo and La Giostra.  I also love everything Fendi, and the store in Florence is spectacular.

I actually think that one of my favorite hotel rooms is in the SoHo House in Chicago. It is grand and undeniably English. It’s built in an old warehouse with 30-foot ceilings and  furnished and appointed impeccably. An hour after I’ve checked in there is a knock on my door. I open up to a bartender and bar cart waiting to make me a complimentary cocktail. I mean…

When it comes to chilling, my go-to is always Anguilla.  Despite how much it has been built up over the years, nothing detracts from its pristine beaches, quality restaurants (Blanchard's and Picante) and friendly people.  It has still maintained its low-key vibe and I always make sure to avoid Christmas and Spring Break weeks to make sure of that.
