    Alright, it’s honesty hour. We’re not sure if it’s the wacky seasonal weather or just the post-March slump, but we’re in desperate need of getting out of town for a few days. Only problem is, with all that spare cash flow saved up for summertime road-trips and festival-ready rompers, there’s no wiggle room to hop across the pond — no matter how badly we crave it.

    All hail the bearer of day-brightening news, then, because have we got a doozy of a surprise for you. We’ve teamed up with Travel + Leisure and Vente-Privee to give one massively lucky reader a coast-crossing trip of a lifetime to London. We’re talking round-trip airfare for you and a pal, a four-night stay at the luxe-beyond-belief Metropolitan Hotel just outside Kensington Gardens, and best of all: $500 of cold, hard cash. Spend it on a mani of artistic proportions at Wah! Nails, grab a black cab and take a tour of London’s best market stalls, or even treat the whole pub to late-night kebabs — it’s your choice!

    Don’t drag your feet on trekking overseas on our dime while planning your perfect suitcase, though. Enter straight away, and check out our problem-solving packing itinerary after the jump.

So, our hooves require shoes that won’t make us read
