In My Bag
I DON'T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT:
necklace goes with
pretty much everything
and catches the colors of
what I'm wearing.
My black nylon Burberry tote. It's lightweight,
ﬂexible, and ﬁts everything. I've even replaced
the zipper once. I keep
trying to ﬁnd a new bag,
but I just can't give up on
this tote's efﬁciency.
I save my InStyle
magazines as a treat
when I travel.
2. Moroccanoil Curl
Deﬁning Cream. My curly
hair has a mind of its own,
so I ﬁnd it amusing to see
how it decides to curl in
3. A baby blue Loro
Piana cashmere scarf.
Lisa Bridge Collection jewelry, of course.
Long necklaces are
versatile and fun, and
look instantly chic. My
labradorite and rainbowmoonstone station
My classic Rolex
Datejust is elegant
enough to wear formally
and hardy enough for any
adventure I may tackle.
7. Fresh Lotus Youth
Preserve Face Cream.
brings my skin back
8. Brooks Adrenaline
GTS 18 running shoes.
There's something peaceful and intimate about
running during the early
morning in a new city.
My Travel Essentials
To Lisa Bridge Berenstein, all the world's a gem.

Peru to Rio, "When I see a beautiful
vista, an interesting pattern in a skirt,
or the shapes in a wall, I grab whatever
paper is around and start sketching,"
says the Seattle-based 32-year-old,
who has a lot to celebrate with a
recent marriage and her big promotion. Where next? Cuba, "sooner
rather than later," and Botswana, with
a group of Ben Bridge associates, to
trace the journey of a diamond.
