PretAirporter.com, the consumer title for the travel shopping channel from The Moodie Davitt Report, recently named Kim Dao as winner of its latest monthly Travel Shopping Blog Award. The awards celebrate the best posts across beauty, fragrance, fashion, luxury, wines and spirits among key opinion leaders around the world of travel and shopping.

Explaining how she began blogging, Kim said: “I’m just an ordinary girl who absolutely loves make-up, fashion, and travelling! I first started blogging in 2011 as a way of keeping track of all my amazing memories while vacationing in Japan. I fell so deeply in love with the country and culture that I wanted to make sure I preserved every part of the trip. Over time, I started attracting a lot of attention from readers who enjoyed my blogs. This led me to create a YouTube channel where I share videos about my travels, makeup, fashion, and my everyday life.”

As our overall winner for the PretAirporter Travel Shopping Blog Awards this month, Kim wins US$300. But before she headed off for her next flight, we asked her a few quick questions.

What’s your favourite holiday destination?
Europe, especially France. I love exploring and seeing the beautiful architecture. There are just so many countries you can visit that are so easily accessible.

Which airport did you last visit?
Copenhagen Airport

What’s the best thing you’ve bought at an airport?

Water! I always have to have water on me when I board a flight because it gets so dry in the air. I always have to buy one after I pass through security!

What’s the one thing you always take with you when flying?
I always have to bring a small skincare kit with me while flying. My skin is very dry and especially in the air it gets worse. I always make sure to carry a face mask and a small sample-sized skincare kit to help my skin stay hydrated.

Which is your favourite airport and why?
Singapore Changi Airport. It is my favourite because it is so big and there is always something to do. I’ve had long layovers at Changi Airport before and I never get bored of the place!
