We caught up with Nicole Williams, author of Girl on Top during her multi-city book tour to find out what she's got in her carry on.
Here's what we found:
I carry an oversized Givenchy black patent tote. It is super durable, and because it's patent leather I can wipe it down when it gets dirty, which it always does when you are touring for 43 days!
I am a total germaphobe, so for me the sun rises and sets with PURELL!
I always carry a hair elastic, Altoids, Bobbi Brown Brightening Lip Gloss (in Pink) and Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer.
Layering is essential when traveling because you’re always hot then cold! My go-to is a Christopher Fisher gray cashmere wrap [similar to the one below]—perfect because its cute enough to wear to a meeting after the flight.
When I’m flying, I skip the iPod and use the time to catch up on reading or some work—Virgin America makes it so easy on you because of their in-flight wifi.
I always pick up something beforehand—like a turkey sandwich and if I am lucky enough to find it, Pirates Booty!
I’m not going to lie to you, at this point in the tour we are so tired, its all about reading chick-lit and a stack of gossip mags to make the time fly by! I also am a big believer in magazine karma, I leave anything I already read on the flight for the next Girl on Top who sits down!
