Favourite hotel in the world?

Ah this is so difficult! Probably Il San Pietro in Positano. I stayed in a room with the biggest bathroom I’ve ever seen, that was completely pink marble!

Best restaurant you've been to?

The Tides in Vero Beach, Florida… their oatmeal cake is out of this WORLD. Sounds strange but trust me! !

Best beach you've ever visited?

Trunk Bay on St. John, USVI

Best city for a weekend break?

I’d have to say NYC! Even in Covid times it’s still been my favorite place to spend the weekends.

Your favourite view in the world?

Looking out at the stunning pitons on St. Lucia

Holiday beauty essentials?

A shimmery bronzer (Chanel), waterproof mascara (Too Faced), and strong SPF (Supergoop)!

Best travel hack you've discovered?

I fold my clothes the Marie Kondo way when I pack them in my suitcase and it literally DOUBLES the amount that I can fit.

Light packer or over packer? 

Guilty of being the over-packer, but I will always have just the thing you’re looking for while we’re on a trip…

What are your Hand Luggage Must Haves? 

My Hartmann carry-on suitcase + a sturdy tote (which is frequently my Goyard GM tote).

Window seat or aisle seat? 

Window!

Would you rather see lots of places or get to know one location?

See lots of places for sure


The best travel advice you have been given? 

My mom always says that the very best places are the hardest to get to, and she’s never been wrong about that! She’s taught me how to be a patient traveler from the time I was little.

How would you describe your travel style?

Comfortable with personality—I’ll wear joggers but also have on all of the jewelry I don’t want to get tangled while traveling, ha! But once I’ve arrived to the destination, I’m putting on a gorgeous dress immediately!

What is your ideal plane outfit?

Sneakers, joggers, and either sherpa or cashmere on top!

Strict schedule or go with the flow? 

I am big on having an itinerary… that’s easily adaptable

Are you early, late or bang on time?

Usually juuust on time.

Has 2020 made you think differently about travel? 

Yes—I appreciate my past (and hopefully soon-to-be) future travels much more than ever before. Traveling has given me the most beautiful experiences I’ve had in my life, and I will never, ever take that for granted and cannot wait to cherish my future adventures.
