Pack: Leslie Kirchhoff, photographer & DJ

Travelling well is an art form. Striking a balance between not underpacking or overpacking, while looking like a boss and having all those on flight essentials – the ideal. The reality here at LOVE TWAIN HQ., as we pack our own last minute essentials too many jeans and all black everything. So in a bid to pack like a pro, we turned to globetrotter, DJ, photographer and all-around cool girl, Leslie Kirchhoff.

The bag: Need Supply Co weekender bag and Mansur Gavriel tote

Bare essentials: Computer, phone, headphones, sunglasses, makeup bag, underwear

Go to shoes: Alexander Wang Anouk Boots. Easy on and off

… when I step off the plane it’s all about: Putting on sunglasses and finding the nearest piña colada

Beauty List: Marc Jacobs mascara, Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette, Mac eyeliner pen, Nars tinted moisturizer and concealer, Aesop facial cream, Redken Diamond Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

Scent: Marni Rose

The lifesavers: Aveda Blue Oil, Greeter’s Pastilles blueberry throat drops, and tissue packs that make me feel very mom-like

Book of choice: Magazines. I actually love Delta Sky Mag, and I usually bring New York Mag or Bon Appetit

Soundtrack goes a little like: I usually listen to my playlist Qualität Musik

Headphones: Frends x May Kwok headphones

Never without: Stamps and a pen. I like to send postcards and play sudoku

My last destination was: Boca Raton Resort in Florida, for a DJ gig.

My next destination will be: Wisconsin for 4th of July

On the hit list: Shanghai, Capetown, Bali, Seoul, Nashville

Pre-travel ritual: A bloody mary or two at the airport

Post-travel ritual: Lay in my hammock / never fully unpack
