Five years ago - before there was even a whisper of the dreaded Covid in the air - my lovely mother and I took ourselves off to dreamy Pollenca for a girls' holiday at the start of the summer in 2018. I can honestly say it's the most sleep I've had since having kids; I came back a new woman and looking at least ten years younger. Five nights without a snoring husband and wriggling toddlers in bed with me was utter BLISS.
So, Mum and I are heading off to Mallorca again this July and I've already been mentally compiling all of the billions of lists needed to plan/travel/survive. If there's one thing that 40 year old Sarah does differently to 20 something Sarah, it's packing; I'm just far too long in the tooth these days to be dragging around twenty maxi dresses and fifteen spangly bikinis. Oh no, dear reader; I am ALL about comfortable travel and the capsule boho wardrobe!
(If my twenty something self could hear me now she would promptly throw a fit and declare 'boho capsule wardrobes' to be for complete morons. How times have changed...)
It did get me thinking about 'easy-going travel' though, and how to make the most of the peace and quiet whilst also looking the part at check in. What I do know for sure is that our best-selling quilted weekend bags are utter perfection when it comes to airport chic; they're gorgeously pretty but also wildly practical. I promise you that we have worked long and hard to make them as hard-working as possible for you, which is why we boast that they are 'slowly handmade for busy living'.
If someone asked me why our boho quilted weekend bags are SO spesh, I would say that it's ALL in the detail: scallop pockets, a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap, external end pockets (honestly, you'll thank me!) and the most gorgeous contrast lining and piping, because we all deserve to feel a bit fancy.
Bags must NOT be boring!
Even better, our block print neon chevron bags are the brightest hues humanly possible and they have been our stand-out best seller so far this year. Join the pre-order list now if you want yours in time for summer.
Must Have Beauty Buys:
I'm a total sucker for beauty products and, every summer, I convince myself that I need a whole raft of new, exciting lotions and potions to get me through the tropical conditions in the UK. 🤣 Things I can't live without though are:
