Tips on Traveling Well (+ A Giveaway)



As someone who values travel in her life, I also love the art of traveling well. I always travel relatively light – I can use a carry on for a two-week trip. That being said, I love to have everything organized and I spend a great deal of time figuring out how to best do this.


Here are some tips for traveling well

  • I always bring a wrap/throw to have on the airplane. I steer away from those airline blankets (too many potential germs). I have several of the throws from St Frank (that I use as a shawl) in black, gray, and recently I got one in cream. They’re great on the plane but are also a perfect way to spruce up an outfit for evening. I don’t leave home without one.

  • I also like to have several cosmetic bags to put medication, cosmetics, and even snacks in. You never know when you might need them. I love how the mud cloth travel clutch goes so perfectly with the larger clutch size (again, my “bag within a bag” belief).

  • Be sure to have a good book. Have you read A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles? If not, this is a book you may want to pick up. It was such a heart-warming story. I also just started Commonwealth by Ann Patchett and I can’t put it down.

  • Finally, always buy water for the airplane. Staying hydrated is one of the essential things for warding off jet lag.


The good news is that we are having a giveaway. You can enter to win the St Frank throw and Mud Cloth Travel Clutch that I have pictured. All you need to do is:

The core to St. Frank’s mission is their two-fold social mission:

Supporting economic empowerment for artisans Preserving traditional artisanal craft


They accomplish this through partnering with entrepreneurial artisan organizations that transform the communities in which they work by providing quality jobs, training, and other holistic support to artisans. They collaborate with partners to tell the story of the historical and cultural context of each unique piece. Textiles are the most universal and yet diverse art form – and their pieces are celebrated as such. I personally love the variety they have and each piece is so versatile! Be sure to check out their website or visit them soon at their San Francisco store or the pop-up store in the Hamptons.
