This year I am taking a break from shopping (and blogging about shopping) to spend time with family. Although many people are divided about whether or not it is wrong to shop on Thanksgiving I personally feel that Thanksgiving should be spent at home giving thanks for what you have and not on the hunt to buy more. So this Thanksgiving instead of shopping sleep in, eat a lot, hang out with friends and family and save your money. BTW I personally think after Christmas Sales are waaayy better than black Friday and will be holding out until then.
Every summer about half of New York City heads out to the Hamptons on Friday night for a weekend of fun in the sun. Not only is it expensive ($500 bucks a night for a motel room) but the traffic is horrendous (upwards of 5 hours depending on the time of day). You can take the train out there and avoid the traffic but I personally like the convenience of having my own car. You are probably wondering why I am talking about the Hamptons when it is snowing out. Don't worry. I am getting to my point.
A few weekends ago DH and I decided to spend our anniversary weekend in the Hamptons. It was a last minute trip but just to sum it up not only did we make it out to Southampton in under 90 minutes but we were able to find a hotel room for the night for around $100 bucks that put us about 5 minutes away from the wineries we were hoping to visit.

When I first started blogging I thought that I was going to write about fashion all the time. I mean it is my obsession. I love to shop and I love to play dress up. Over the years my blogging started to evolve into fashion posts about traveling and fashion posts about what I was packing for a weekend getaway. The more I posted about the places I was going or was getting ready to go the more people started to ask questions about how I could afford the time and the money to travel so much. As I started to share tips and tricks about how I keep up my lifestyle on a budget I wanted to write about it and here we are with Poor in a Private Plane.
Living Poor in a Private Plane is not just about travel. It is about a lifestyle. Anyone who knows me knows that deep down inside I am not a money motivated person. I like to have nice things and nice experiences but I don't necessarily think you need all the money in the world to do that. Yeah I wear Louboutins (that I got on sale) and travel to All Inclusive Resorts (using airline points), but it is not because I am rich. It is because I am creative. With the launch of this new blog I hope to share a little bit about my lifestyle and how I manage it. This is not a fashion blog or a travel blog. This is a lifestyle blog. There will be posts about travel and fashion and shopping among other things. Look at this as my online diary that I am choosing to share with all my readers.
I am looking forward to to sharing my experiences with everyone.
