"Travelling is fun, but it can also wreak havoc on my sensitive skin. So I’m making sure to strengthen and brighten my skin, especially through the change in weather and atmosphere, with the Mamonde Red Energy Recovery Serum that’s packed with Polyphenol from Pomegranate. Hint: it makes you glow, no matter where you are!"

A beauty roller to add in your travel bags



"Travelling sure is fun but there are two things I often have to deal with: (1) keeping my beauty routine to a minimum to save on luggage space and (2) worrying about muscle aches due to a lot of walking trips. So when I saw the ReFa RHYTHM beauty roller that can deal with both, I knew it's worth checking out. The intricate design promises to gently relieve facial tension, improve circulation deep within the skin and soothe muscle fatigue, making it an effective yet compact beauty tool any jet-setter would want to have in their arsenal."

A bag with pink and black design

Price unavailable


"Last week, I've finally found the time to do the KonMari Tidying Method and discarded some pieces from my wardrobe, including bags that I don't use anymore. Most of those that I got rid of are the bulky backpacks and worn-out satchels from my college days. Now that I'm slowly building a new wardrobe to suit my current situation as a working girl, I'm looking for exquisite purses that exude elegance and the Furla Diva M Shoulder Bag from the Pre-Fall 2019 collection instantly caught my eye. Plus, it's also a very sturdy and roomy bag so it's the perfect travel bag for my adventures. Hoping to add this one to my arsenal soon."

A black flowing dress

"A flowy dress is always a chic and comfortable piece to have during my travels. This black flowing dress from ZARA, for one, is an effortless piece of clothing that is good for layering during winter and a good stand-alone piece for summer. It is easy to pair with sneakers or sandals, too. I keep one in all my travel bags and it's definitely great for any holiday."

A cushion foundation to add in your travel bag



"I find cushions to be the most convenient choice while travelling and this Sulwhasoo Phoenix Perfecting Cushion is just beautiful. The design motif is inspired by the Korean folk painting, Seosunagwondo, and it really speaks to my love of Oriental art. I love the light, moisturising, and flawless finish of a good cushion and Sulwhasoo is a something I've yet to try."

A pair of leather strappy sandals

"When I travel, I especially love visiting historical and heritage sites, and when I do, I don’t like leaving a corner unexplored. That’s why I like to have another pair of sandals that are comfortable enough to walk in all day long. These leather sandals from the Loro Piana Spring/Summer 2019 collection looks especially great. Its design is classically versatile and can be paired with any of my holiday outfits. Because it’s thin and lightweight, I can easily fit it in any of my travel bags — talk about the perfect travel footwear."
