MY 5 BEST TIPS TO KEEP MIND AND BODY HEALTHY WHEN WORKING OVERSEAS.
Hi there. This job takes me so many fantastic places, like right now I’m in Cape Town, South Africa to shoot a campaign with a German client and next month I’m heading to New York for fashion week.
When I travel a lot, it’s important for me to feel comfortable in what ever new place I find myself. Call time (meeting time in ‘fashion language’) for the makeup artist is usually very early when on trips (5am is very common) so it’s important that I get my sleep in order to be my best at work.
To do this I bring some ‘homey’ stuff, like my incense from Morning Star, my favorite is Cedar Wood. It’s really good Japanese incense which makes my room smell like home. Get it here.
My light weight, sustainable yoga mat made for traveling from Yogo, so I can do a little yoga or stretch before or after traveling, plus get a little exercise when away from home. Get it here.
Something comfortable to slip into when I’m in my hotel room, my Montmatre slip from Ganni is pretty and takes up little space in my trolley compared to my (beloved) P.J. Get it here.Healthy snacks like almonds and bananas to keep the hunger at bay when I get up before the hotel restaurant opens, plus these are great on plains where I don’t like to eat the food, – it’s not really good plus it messes up my metabolism. I also remember to download a couple of good books from my StoryTel app. It’s perfect on the airplane, plus when you’ve been working for 12 hours straight then have team dinner after, that makes you tired, and listening is just easier than reading. I’m LOVING this audio book app and usually fall a sleep listening to a book like Murakami’s Norwegian Woods or something like that. My daughter is also a big fan.
Sooo now you got an insight of what makes me feel good when away, perhaps it will inspire you to bring something with you on your trips that helps making your time away, feel as good as your time home.
