Travel chic: Bestie From Africa

Having met the fabulous Ms. Kass here I thought I’d introduce you to another little gypsett jetsetter, Bestie From Africa. Β I shall be with this gal very soon and will be living it up in L’afrique {c’est chic!} and thought I’d share with you her travelling tips from Zimbabwe to Mexico, from Austria to Burma. Β This girl has travelled the world for work and play and is a mean packer.

What’s your feel good staple?

Probably a couple of beach dresses (at least 2 to co-ordinate with various bikinis) so I can spend the day in my bikini without feeling totally naked.

Any tips for light travelling?

Pack what you think you need and then remove at least 3 items. You’ll never miss them.

Who makes the best luggage?

Samsonite. Not cheap, but worth it.

How do you tackle airport security in style?

Put all your liquids in your hand luggage in a clear bag at home so you don’t have to suffer the indignity of rummaging in your bag with one hand while trying not to drop everything else. Also try to go easy on the jewellery, belts etc so you don’t have to spend 15 mins stripping in front of everyone. And, if you have to wear boots, make sure your socks are hot cos you know they’ll make you take your boots off.

What are your inflight essentials?

Earplugs, eyemask, herbal sleeping tablets and a good book.

Whose swimwear makes a splash?

Not sure. Β Mine is cheap and falling apart. I guess I should say, if you buy cheap swimwear one year, remember you’ll have to buy more the next year – if you forget your bottoms will be round your ankles the first time you dive in the next year. Never a good look!

What is your holiday must have?

Ummmm, a good book? does that make me very sad?! otherwise I could say a wax the day before you leave.

What is your summer beauty secret?

You know that one, it’s yours too – moisturise. Religiously.
