Arianna Huffington has strong roots inside her bamboo-handle purse. “I have a key ring with pictures of my daughters,” says the single mom of Christina, 26, and Isabella, 24. “In my wallet, I keep a Mother’s Day card.” The author, 65, of the how-to book The Sleep Revolution (out now) opens her Gucci tote for Us Weekly.
“I carry Yamamotoyama Genmai tea bags. It’s a green tea with roasted brown rice. It’s great on planes and in my office.”
“I always have hand moisturizer by Fresh. When my hands are dry, it’s a terrible feeling. You feel like a scarecrow!”
“The sleep masks they give you on the plane are harsh on the eyes. When I travel, I bring my own. It’s a beautiful pink one by Slip.”
“I listen to meditations on my iPod when I can’t sleep. I even have one recorded by my sister [writer Agapi Stassinopoulos, 57].”
“I have oily Greek skin, so I carry powder to pat myself down!”
“I have two phones; I talk on one while looking at stories on the other. I differentiate the phones by the screen savers — each is a different picture of my daughters.”
Also in Huffington’s carryall? Two iPhone 6’s, a laminated card saying poet Rumi’s quote “Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor,” a specially made Huffington Post pen, Warby Parker glasses (Kimball Tortoise shell), The Lucky Years by David Agus, a beige Jawbone UP3 activity tracker, a Ziploc bag of organic almonds, a Ziploc bag of organic walnuts, Stevia, a brown/tortoise banana clip, a Smythson gray makeup bag, Hermes 24 Faubourg Perfume and Tom Ford lipstick (in lip color 14 Sable Smoke).
