The day before I left on my Spanish adventure, a huge parcel arrived courtesy of my postman, and when I impatiently ripped it open I was made up to realise that it contained all sorts of beautiful offerings from Sass and Belle. I spent almost an hour in the Covent Garden store when I went down to London and I'm always falling in love with their various bits of homeware and so I was excited to delve into their offerings (they wrapped each one up seperately too, it was like an elaborate Christmas present, it was amazing).
Very appropriately given that I was headed away the next day - the parcel contained a ton of bits and bobs all with their ever popular map print, and so I set to work putting them into pride of place to get me in the mood for my holiday. The Saving To Go Places Money Box (£6.50) in the shape of a suitcase has taken pride of place in our kitchen and our savings for the next time one of us go away go in there - luckily, this has a stopped in the bottom and so we don't need to break it or dig around with a butter knife to get the pound coins out when we're actually leaving and need the change.
Next up were the things that actually came on holiday with me - the Time To Go Explore Discover Dream passport case (£6.50) turned out to be really handy as when there's five of you scrabbling for five identical passports, it's easy to have something that sets you apart. It also means that my passport is almost impossible to lose in my bag, which happens more often than you'd imagine during the two hours that I'm on my a flight. I also took the A Big Book For Little Ideas book (£2.50) in my hand luggage because the plain pages meant that I could draw, write and generally scribble my way through the journey. I actually really like this book, it's quickly become a jotter that I carry around with me on a day to day business to fill with my generally brain crap.
Finally for the map print was the Around The World Map Cushion (£18) which has gone amongst the rest of the cushions on my bed. Some might argue that it's just one more cushion to move off the bed at night and fit back on the bed in the morning, but it's so cute that I'm not even made about it. Next up were some frames to keep all my memories from the holiday in - let's start with the super cool and hipster Industrial Finish Hanging Square Frame (£7.50) and the Industrial Finish Hanging Rectangular Frame (£13) - I love the idea of these frames and I plan to fill them with memory bits and bobs and hang them in my room to remind me of all the amazing times I've had in the last few months - if anyone's got any tips on how to make them look amazing, send them my way!
Finally is probably my favourite out of the whole lot - the Industrial Landscape Photo Frame (£13). I plan to find the perfect picture and pop this up on my desk, but I love the stand on this particular frame - I think it's really classic and yet slightly unusual at the same time.
Sass and Belle has all kinds of goodies ready for Summer, and so take a look at the site. If you snag anything good, be sure to let me know!
