TRAVEL | SECURITY BLANKET

I only fly Delta because points can really pay off. My elderly Chinese Crested dog, Blanket, is an emotional support animal and Delta is ultra-accommodating. If I’m lucky, Blanket scores her own seat. I love to write on a plane so this works out nicely.

I adore traveling but frequent-flying dries out skin. My friend Rumi once told me, “You can’t waste your time caring what other people think.” This is especially useful advice when you get the urge to do a facemask on a plane.

I always try to pack:

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery

Comfy socks

Hydrating lip gloss like Aquaphor

Aesop Rose Water Spritz

Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Eye Cream

And a huge water. I prefer Alkaline but it’s tough to find in the airport.

I’ve been fortunate to spend a lot of time in Paris. I love it there and try to go back at least twice a year. Right now I’m really into exploring Le Marais with all the little shops but I think my heart will forever be in St. Germain de Pres.
