As I'm getting ready to embark on another musical travel adventure, I thought I'd share a few things that help make my trips easy and enjoyable.
Samantha Pleet: Rompers
New York's Samantha Pleet is one of the raddest designers out there. I love her eco-friendly vintage-inspired pieces which were showcased by the lovely ladies from Dirty Projectors on their recent tour and Coachella appearance. Last summer, I visited Samantha at her studio in Brooklyn and was able to pick-up a bunch of her beautiful trademark rompers. It takes seconds to throw one on and score a one-of-a-kind look.
HopStop.com: Subway, Bus, and Walking Directions
If you have an iPhone, you can download the HopStop app, or if you're a blackberry user like myself you can access it on your browser or email yourself the directions from HopStop.com. When I only have a few days to spend in a city, I need to know how to get to where I want to go quickly and without large annoying maps getting in the way. With HopStop, you type in your start and end points and it searches the best subway, bus, and/or walking routes for you. Believe me, this will change your life.
Dermalogica: Daylight Defense
I try not to pack full-sized products with me to save space, so the Dermalogica travel kits are just absolute perfection. My personal favs are the multi-active toner, daily microfoliant, and the entire daylight defense kit (SPF is very important when shooting outdoors all day). The bags that the kits come with are great to put make-up and other toiletries in as well.
