If you could pack only five things for a vacation, what would they be?

An oversized white shirt, a pair of jeans, sunscreen, a swimsuit and a lipstick.

Tell us about your skincare and fitness regime while travelling.

I try to keep my skincare routine as regular as I can by carrying facemasks with me on trips. The fitness regime depends on where I am travelling, If I’m travelling to a place like London, I tend to walk a lot. On work trips, I try to hit the gym as I start my day.

We need your fashion guidance. While vacationing in winters, what are the top five ensembles one should carry?

Winter essentials include a pair of flat boots, thermals, a nice tan jacket, monkey caps and a nice woollen evening dress.

Lastly, are you a fan of solo travelling?

Yes, and I recommend it to everyone. I think it opens up another side of you, it makes you independent and more comfortable with yourself.
