What is your favourite travel des­ti­na­tion for food, for shop­ping and for pho­to­graphs?

I am for­tu­nate to travel be­cause of work and have lost count of the coun­tries I have vis­ited. When I was younger, I loved New York and its fast-paced life­style. Now my favourite would have to be Los Angeles where the vibe is more chill. For food and shop­ping, it's a toss-up be­tween Ja­pan and Hong Kong. I can't de­cide be­cause I love them equally. For the best In­sta­grammable pho­tos, it's def­i­nitely the beaches in the Philip­pines.

What tops your travel bucket list?

South Africa. I want to ex­pe­ri­ence its wildlife, feed the gi­raffes and see li­ons ca­su­ally chill­ing in front of me.

What’s your def­i­ni­tion of a per­fect va­ca­tion?

Lots of sun­shine with gin and tonic.

What are your trop­i­cal travel es­sen­tials?

Lip balm, sun­screen, mois­turiser, in­sect re­pel­lent, sun­glasses, sen­si­ble shoes, wide­brimmed hat, a cute straw bag, a day dress and a swim­suit.

What’s your most un­for­get­table trav­el­ling ex­pe­ri­ence?

The chal­lenge of trekking and to ex­pe­ri­ence the spir­i­tual en­ergy in Bhutan was memorable.

What is one pack­ing tip that al­ways works for you when you travel?

Learn to ef­fec­tively com­part­men­talise.

Do you have any mul­ti­task­ing fash­ion or beauty items that are per­fect to take on hol­i­day?

Vir­gin co­conut oil. I use it as a lo­tion, hair treat­ment and make-up re­mover. For fash­ion, denim jeans are per­fect to dress down or dress up an out­fit, or just wear ca­su­ally with a T-shirt.

What do you like to wear on trips to trop­i­cal coun­tries?

Wear­ing colours is the quick­est way to stay cool in the sum­mer. I love good state­ment mules paired with an in­ter­est­ing it­er­a­tion of the denim jean for sum­mer. I'll just throw in a sleek shoul­der bag and I'm sum­mer-ready.

What’s in your long-haul carry-on bag?

Sun­glasses, a cash­mere throw, mois­turiser and a small bag of toi­letries.

Who are your style icons? Where do you find styling in­spi­ra­tions?

Bianca Jag­ger and Loulou de la Falaise.

For styling in­spo, it's def­i­nitely when I travel that I feel most in­spired. In­spi­ra­tion is ev­ery­where, as clichéd as that may sound.
