From Amanda:
I need a lot of stuff on me at all times. We have offices in Philadelphia and New York, so I’m constantly traveling in one direction or the other. I’ve also been with my partner for five years and we live separately, because we both have kids, so I’m always going back and forth between his house and mine. I’m on the go like a gypsy. I’ve got my Marc Jacobs aviator sunglasses, which my son always loves to take from me. I have a pouch in my bag where I keep an extra phone cord, my checkbook and a few makeup essentials—the little stuff I’m always digging for. It makes it so much easier to switch bags without forgetting anything. I have a red wallet made by this company in San Francisco called Waterfield. It has to be red so I can easily find it and grab it. I always have a few Pilot rollerball pens—I’ve been using those since high school—and a tiny blue notebook. I rewrite my to-do list every day based on what I did and didn’t get done the day before and reorganize the list based on my priorities. It’s one of my little ceremonies in the morning.
