My flight to New York was going to be a long one, 24hrs of being cramped up in a small space eating food off a tray and trying to sleep. I barely got any sleep the night before I flew out, I was too anxious and excited. I just kept thinking about what was on the other side of the flight… New York. I kissed my baby goodbye, choked back the tears and gripped Steve’s hand all the way to the airport. My flight wasn’t until 10am but I was there by 5:30am keen as mustard.
No make up for me on flights as you can tell from this photo. For me personally, flying fashionably has nothing to do with how you look in the beginning but how you feel and apear throughout the entire flight. I chose clothes that wouldn’t wrinkle, were easy to layer and would hide any spills. I opted not to wear jewellery to make the security screenings a breeze and I left my hair to curl naturally then pinned it up when I arrived in New York. I wore leggings and flats to disguise my ugly but necessary flight socks which totally save my ankles. Throw in the fabulousness of my silver camera bag and my “Danimezza Blue” suitcases and I felt nothing less than fabulous.

You should always try to look your freshest at the airport because you never know who you might run into! I was on the same flight as Chelsea, owner of Bella Model Management and ran into Blaize (you might recognise her recently from the Autograph website) who was off on a skiing trip with her boyfriend in New Zealand. Even in a blurry shot she’s utterly gorgeous. If you can’t skip make up altogether like I did, I’d recommend tinting your eyelashes prior, using a hydrating BB cream and a tinted lip balm. I used the flight time to give myself a hydrating mask and serum facial but each to their own.
