  • 1. What’s your go-to carry on or piece of luggage?

    Tumi Tegra-Lite Expandable Carry-On

  • 2. What’s your go-to travel uniform?

    Lululemon yoga pants Super comfortable and goes with everything. They can also look less casual and more dressed up when paired with the right top and/or jacket if you want to look cute in case you meet a cute boy on the plane and don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed to catch your flight.

  • 3. Can’t travel without:

    Evian Mineral Water Facial Spray

  • 4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed:

    HAIR TOOLS I packed both a curling iron and a straightener in the one backpack I could bring to go on The Amazing Race. I was like, “I gotta look good this is going to be on National TV!” Then I realized once the race started that there is no way I will carry this extra weight on my back while running the race so had to leave both behind on a boat headed to Vietnam from Japan.

  • 5. Favorite thing to nick from the hotel room

    LOTION Love taking the little bottles of lotion because they fit perfectly into my purse and I hate having dry hands! I can’t remember the last time I had to buy hand lotion!
