There’s one thing Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t: A sucker when it comes to travel tips. That’s why you’ll never find her sitting through a time-share pitch to get discount Disney tickets or stuck at a sketchy steakhouse in Niagara Falls.
Because she has the laser-beam truth vision required to see through disingenuous travel tipsters whose pockets have been lined by scheming tourist traps. And Gwyneth is such a magnanimous person that she’s sharing her hard-won tips with the world via the new GOOP City iPhone app.
“After years of being steered in the wrong direction by bribed concierges, biased opinions and just plain bad suggestions, I decided to create what I had been missing: The goop City Guide!” writes Gwynnie in her latest GOOP newsletter.
That’s right. A mere $3.99 will buy you access to her repurposed GOOP “Go” newsletters about the greater New York area.
From the description:
“Goop finds you the ultimate nail salon, the most fantastic food cart for a quick snack, the best boutique to find a unique piece for your wardrobe, a beautiful salon where you can get your makeup done, the coolest playground to take your kids to, and the person to call for an at-home blow dry.”
So, instead of relying on paid-off concierges, we can all patronize Gwyneth-approved restaurants and retailers. Which, based on past experience, are usually owned by her friends, family and closest advisers.
Oh Gwyneth, thank you for being you.
