I couldn’t decide what to post about today, so here’s a few things I’ve seen this week and thought “wooooo!”
1) The Brandonburg Coat by Makool Loves You – Wooly and warm and perfect for travelling escapades!
2) Paris! Cards by Darling Clementine – Oh so sweet! The perfect gift for your wanderlusting friends & family.
3) Duluth Utility Pack by Inventory – This cute pack has an air of the past about it so you can feel like you’re on an adventure when you’re just going to school or work.

This week’s Wise Words come from a collection of 40 Top Travel Tips put together by Gourmet Traveller. I wish I’d thought of this one before. On our last trip overseas, my boyfriend’s luggage went missing twice and he was stuck without clothes for a couple of days. It was not ideal…
“When travelling with your spouse or partner, split the contents of each suitcase so that you have some of their items and they have some of yours. Then, if one of your suitcases goes missing, you will have enough clothing to get by.”
– Lorraine Sharp, managing director, Insight Vacations Australia
Tupperware and travel aren’t two words you’d usually hear in the same sentence… Until now. Tupperware have jumped on the jetsetting band wagon and brought out this new (dare I saw nigh on indestructable) travel pack.
It includes two 75mL travel bottles, a pill case, a case for creams, a toothbrush cap, and a clear travel bag. It also comes with a lifetime guarantee. Ooh err.

Situation: you’re gearing up for a weekend away and you’re know what to pack. Well, I’m sure in a stretch any of us could throw a bunch of things in a bag and hit the road. But the question is about how do you pack lightly and pack well?
Here’s what I’d pop into my bag…
Two savvy travelistas from Queensland are behind one-stop-travel-shop Ciao Bella Travel. They wanted to provide a resource for female travellers preparing for a trip and, by george, they’ve done it!
They’ve got clothing, they’ve got luggage, they’ve got cosmetics, accessories, locks, socks, and wet bikini bags! Everything you need to jetset with no worries. Love!
Flight 001 is a one stop shop for everything you could possibly need for travel. From luggage to lint-remover, these guys have got it! With a few stores gracing the coast of the US and an easy-to-use online store, it really does streamline travel-prep.
Although some of the products seem completely superfluous, like this Swiss Spice Salt & Pepper Kit, others like the F1 Jetfresh Kit (containing earplugs, a dental kit, lip balm, eye mask, moist towelettes, breath mints, moisturiser, a pen, and a deck of cards) are exactly what you need!
Today I found myself in the airport to pick up my parents. Their flight was delayed an hour so, with time to kill, I headed to the airport newsagent/shop. Now, I am very familiar with airport shops worldwide but today got me thinking about how much of what they sell is actually useful. Here’s my choice for the top five things you can pick up in an airport shop.
