Next summer, I'm going to do some international traveling, and I'm already planning ahead, thinking about how to be more efficient with what I bring with me. Last year when I went on a trip, I had a "wallet" of sorts, and as pretty as it was, it was made of flimsy leather, so it flopped all over the place whenever I had to get it out of my bag. A firm leather wallet might be a better option, and this one caught my eye. At only $34, it's a much more affordable option than most of the wallets I've seen out there. Find it at Poketo here.
My practical ceramic IKEA plates have taken a beating over the last few years. I can't complain much as they were super cheap. But pretty soon, I'm going to have to replace them, and I've been considering another material that won't chip so much. That's where wood plates might come into play for me. Sold at Pocket for $18 for a dessert plate and $25 for a dinner plate, these kitchen favorites offer simplicity, practicality and beauty. Find them here.
If you're taking a trip this summer, the first thing on your list (after your passport, of course), should be a travel journal. Even if you're not someone who's much of a writer, a travel journal is something you'll always look back on and read with fondness.
Last summer, I ventured to Switzerland, Paris, and Italy, and the trip blew my mind (not to mention my wallet). While I picked up a number of fashionable treasures in Europe, one of my best possessions after the trip turned out to be my travel journal that I picked up from Poketo. This year's version of the same journal (with a new cover and internal updates) is just as fresh and timeless. For $24, this is a keepsake that you'll hold onto forever. Check it out here.
Poketo never disappoints. The minimalistic shop (which is currently on a brick and mortar hiatus) always offers original and stylish finds. The latest are these two jewelry selections that include brass and cow horn. Stunning. Original. One-of-a-kind. And, affordable, as far an unique jewelry is concerned. Find them here.
I am obsessed with organizational supplies—especially when they're fashionable. Lucky me! I stumbled upon these darling (and affordable!) totes to carry around your laptop and important papers to meetings. For $68, this sweet Document Tote from Pocket comes in three minimalistic shades: black, caramel, and cream. The only question is: How do I decide which one to get?
