WHAT?S IN THE BAG
I pack light -- one bag (Townhouse Esmond Satchel by Tumi, $750).
2. COCKTAIL TO START THE NIGHT
I?m always calorie conscious so I go for the least fattening drinks, like Patr?n Silver ($42.99) over ice.
3. MUST-HAVE ARTICLES OF CLOTHING FOR THE PLANE
Havaianas flip-flops ($16) and a tee from my Ten clothing line ($25)
4. TIP FOR SURVIVING AN UNEXPECTED AIRPORT DELAY
I tie up loose ends at work using my BlackBerry (BlackBerry Storm, $199 with two-year contract).

Goldfrapp, Santogold, M.I.A. ($10.98)

A catty book by Augusten Burroughs (A Wolf at the Table, St. Martin?s Press, $24.95)
7. NECESSARY SPLURGE
I love expensive sunglasses (Prada, $325). Once I came home with the deed to a house on Kauai!
8. ARTICLE OF CLOTHING I WON?T TRAVEL WITHOUT
Tennis shoes (Nike Shox Zipsister, $110) -- I always prepare to work out in the gym on a trip, even though it rarely happens.
