Postcard Series: Amber Katz said she must pack...

Founder of rouge18

Travel- hate it, love it? Love it. It's like lemon sorbet for my jaded New Yorker soul. 

It’s not a vacation unless…I agree to zero deadlines. Rarer than a Pikachu sighting, but it happens. 

Planes, trains or automobiles? Planes, typically. But I'm from Philadelphia, so I spend too much time on Amtrak. 

Checked bags or carry on? Always carry-on. I'm too paranoid about losing my favorite products. 

Travel beauty - bare or elaborate? I wish I could do bare, but I tend to wear light makeup — BB cream and tinted lip balm and eye pencil (my favorite is Wander Beauty Eyeliner in Bronzed Brown!) and then towel off my skin and apply a moisturizer on the plane. 

In general my beauty routine is…comprised of many products, but completed impressively quickly. I can be showered, ready and blown-out and made up in about 40 minutes. 

I must pack __________ when traveling? reading material. 

Best travel tip? Packing a travel size container of a luxe lingerie wash to clean bathing suits, workout clothes, and undies on the go. 

Upon arrival at my destination…I either caffeinate or take a nap, depending on whether I've crossed the international date line. 

Favorite travel spot? Kauai, Hawaii. I have a close friend who lives there and it's one of the most special, relaxing, stunning places I've been to in my life. 


What are your 3 must see/do things in this city? Get a shave ice (it's essentially a snow cone). Enjoy the super-soft water and mountain view on the beach at Hanalei. Watch the sunset in Poipu at night with a glass of rose and snack on ahi poke with tortilla chips. I'm doing all of the above in this photo. >>
