  • 1. What’s your perfect carry on or piece of luggage?

    I only carry-on when possible, and 4 wheelers are a must. My favorite so far has been my HERSCHEL ROLLER BAG.

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

    I always layer for traveling...you never know if you will be in an ice box or a sauna. My go to uniform is denim joggers, sneakers, shirt, sweater, and a cashmere scarf. I just designed MY NEW FAVORITE TRAVEL SCARF with 360 cashmere! It's the ultimate travel scarf/blanket.

  • 3. Can’t travel without:

    When you travel all the time, and are always in different places, I find comfort in the small things. I have a set travel bag full of my necessities...MASTER & DYNAMIC HEADPHONES, PAW PAW OINTMENT, ROSE WATER SPRAY, TALL COZY SOCKS, and I always bring an extra COTTON SCARF with me... I use it to tie my head to the seat. I can sleep this way for 9 hours straight. It's especially helpful if you get stuck in a middle seat!

  • 4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed:

    I bought 3 carved cow skulls last time I was in Bali... Hand carrying those back to the states definitely got me some questionable looks...

  • 5. Favorite thing to nick from the hotel room:

    The only time I snag toiletries are when I'm staying at the THE PARKER IN PALM SPRINGS (I love the Hermes soap holders) or THE EDITION (the le labo scented toiletries smell amazing!).
