I’m an absolute sucker for beautiful interiors and gorgeous luxury home ‘essentials’ that celebrities and magazines tell us we absolutely must have. I can resist clothes at a push but a gorgeous candle, throw or serving dish have me swooning at the knees. These are my absolute favourite accesories that I’ve bought for the house, most of them have been bought while travelling which makes them extra special as I always remember our trip whenever I use them.
I’m not a massive shopper by some standards. Given the choice I would prefer to spend my money on travel rather than ‘things’, however, every so often you do have to have a wardrobe update. These are my favourite summer buys.
Bag – KEEPALL BANDOULIÈRE 55 from Louis Vuitton
I mentioned this bag in an earlier post. I treated myself to it ahead of our Orient Express trip as I wanted to look the part on the train. I absolutely adore the Louis Vuitton pictures with all the classic luggage, I just wish I could have someone to transport all of those beautiful cases for me! As 20 cases of varying sizes was not an option I went for the more practical holdall. Yes it’s pricey but it turned out to be a great buy and I’ve already used it on two separate occasions as well as the big trip it was purchased for. Lightweight and durable, it packs flat if you need it to as I did when we moved on to our next destination after our trip on the Orient Express, but can also hold a surprising amount. So far this bag has definitely been worth the money and I’m just in love with the beautiful monogramming on the luggage label.
I’m flying to London this morning so it seemed a good time to share a travel post. As a frequent flyer over the last few years I’ve picked up a few tricks to help me get through a long flight. Our average flight is around 7 hours (between UK and Dubai) which isn’t particularly long however, it can still get a bit uncomfortable if you don’t have the right things with you. If going for a longer flight then you definitely need some of these in your carry on.
