Bad On Paper

Bad On Paper

by Grace Atwood & Becca Freeman

October 16, 2019 3:01 pm

Your new internet besties give you a weekly dose of books, banter, and folks you should be following. Join 30-something reading enthusiasts and real-life best friends Grace Atwood and Becca Freeman every month for a book club featuring a read they promise you won’t be able to put down. In between, they’re joined by guests for conversations on careers, dating, fashion, and more. We have been traveling quite a bit for our live shows and more, so we thought it was time to share some of our vastly differing opinions when it comes to travel. We talk about hotels, airplanes, beauty routines, packing, planning, and everything in between. Needless to say, we have some differing views on a lot of things! Today, in addition to hopefully amusing you with our strong opinions, we help you navigate some of the more stressful parts of traveling through our own experiences. (And did you know customs has an app?) We share all the things we do to keep organized (and sane!) when it comes to traveling. Things Mentioned: Aaptiv App New York Times: 36 hours series TSA Pre-Check The Points Guy Hotels Mentioned: The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles The Ritz Carlton Brown’s Hotel in London The Breakers in Palm Beach La Sultana in Morocco Hotel du-cap-eden-roc in France The Statler Dallas Products Mentioned: Pregnancy Pillow from Amazon Silk Pajamas from Karen Mabon Cookware Set from Simply Calphalon Tumi Suitcase Away Suitcases Instagram Obsessions: @chloeiscrazy @blonde_atlas @bowenyang Books Mentioned: How Could She by Lauren Mechling (October book club pick) The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary  Sponsors:  Borghese:  Special offer 25% sitewide enter code BOP25 at checkout.
