Nothing can add a spark to travel like a bit of fun accessorising. I have my eyes on a few things:
Like the cute travel tag from Etsy (’tis my featured shot for the post) which recalls the words penned for Catherine Morland (ref: Northanger Abbey). The leather tag scores by merely inscribing one of my favourite author’s (and I bet yours too) words on it.
A black & tan roll top rucksack, again from Etsy, which doubles up as a travel bag. It does not look frilly or feminine, just quiet grown-up chic.
If you want to be playful and add colour to your travel essentials, The Darling Trap does a cheeky polka-dotted lingerie case. Why let your lingerie float around in the suitcase feeling unloved?
There are also these lingerie cases from Mochi that come in burnt orange, peachy pink and deep wine tones.
When I am packing my trinkets in, I always find myself looking for small pouches and bags. This should be a nifty way of organising my pretty somethings.
There is nothing like indulging in a spot of yoga in the mornings before you set out for the day during your travels. Here’s a much-needed non-slip yoga mat that can easily fit in the luggage, without taking up the entire bottom of the suitcase.
A folding travel kettle sounds a bit unreal does it not? But a designer has come up with exactly such a kettle that is made of silicone. It is yet to be put out on the market but when it does, I shall be in the queue. I cannot bear the thought of a room without a kettle in it — oh, the harrowing idea of no tea in the morning.
