The Jet-Set Life is nothing new to Nicole Richie, our July Guest Editor and House of Harlow designer. As a global name in fashion, daughter of a music icon and wife of a rockstar, it’s safe to say Nicole has learned a thing or to about life on the road. Case in point? Richie keeps a travel-sized beauty “go bag” tucked away at all times – ready for anything in a flash. We’re taking note and dreaming of a few of her favorite destinations ourselves.
Last week we chatted with Nicole about living a healthy life in L.A. (check out her answers here!); now we’re picking her brain for ways to stay our well-est when we’re on the go this summer. Read on for Nicole’s in-flight musts, tips for hotel coziness (and what to wear en route), and why vacations are more like pizza than we’d previously assumed…
My summer 2016 uniform:
At home, it’s House of Harlow slip dresses and vintage peasant dresses. While traveling, it’s a pair of cashmere sweatpants and a beanie.
I never travel without...
Bobby pins, a hair brush, lavender oil, socks, my iPad, Wet Ones and a good nasal emollient.
Top travel destinations:
Majorca, Spain; Jamaica; Harbour Island.
3 things always in my carry on:
Rubber gloves, good headphones and Emergen-C.
Best packing tip:
I always have a separate travel-size toiletry bag I can take with when I travel.
Tip for staying healthy while traveling:
Drink water constantly. Stay hydrated on the flight. Exercise is key for getting over jet lag.
Fave hotel of all time:
Four Seasons Florence.
Beach bag staples:
Sunscreen, music and a vintage scarf to wrap around my head.
Favorite LA staycation:
Best vacay ever:
I spent two weeks in Europe with my family. We got to explore together everyday!
Worst vacay ever:
Vacations are like pizza… they’re never bad!
Best travel tip of all time:
Treat your hotel room like a spa. Traveling can be hard on your body, so do what you can to make your stay as comfortable as possible
