We’ve been glued to her makeup tutorials and hacks and can’t patiently wait until the next drop. Malvika Sitlani’s stint with makeup has shot her to her much-deserved fame. Here, Sitlani walks us through her travel style file that has gotten us packing our bags already.
[Q] Do you call yourself a traveler or a tourist?
I am a complete traveler, or I could say I have become one since most of my travel is with Akhil, and he really likes to plan and prepare our to-do’s for a vacation. All of our vacations together always include diving deep into an experience or activity that can only be done at our vacation spot and visiting local cafes and hidden gems across the place.
[Q] What kind of packer are you – light or heavy-duty?
I’m totally a heavy-duty packer, but only in terms of clothing. When it comes to makeup and personal care, I always ensure I have a small kit and mini’s that make traveling with items easier.
[Q] What are your travel essentials?
Packing cubes to ensure my suitcase is always organized and does not look messy. A jacket or a hoodie for the flight and otherwise too since I feel cold easily. Mini’s of all your bath and body products to make traveling easier, and a pouch with some basic medicines for headaches, upset stomach, cramps, etc.
[Q] How many gadgets do you carry while traveling?
Just my phone and my vlogging camera.
[Q] What are your traveling pet peeves?
Small traveling bags! I always need a big suitcase with lots of space irrespective of the vacation being a short one or a long one.
[Q] What has been the most useful travel item you’ve bought?
It is definitely the packing cubes for my suitcase and my CK suitcase since it’s extremely spacious and looks super chic!
[Q] What’s the most reliable source of travel advice?
YouTube. I always watch a lot of vlogs and videos by my favorite YouTubers and content creators. Apart from that, I usually go to Akhil for all my travel doubts.
[Q] Do you prefer to walk, take public transport, or take private transport during a vacation?
It is actually subjective to the destination.
[Q] Would you rather see a lot of places or get to know one really well?
I’d rather see a lot of places but have some amazing memories and experiences associated with each one.
[Q] What is your dream traveling experience?
I don’t know about an experience in particular, but I have a list of places I want to visit in my life, and I am slowly ticking off places from there.
[Q] What, according to you, is that one most cliched thing to do when on a vacation?
Nothing really, I believe everyone’s travel comfort is different!
