Ok. I'm excited as I have travel plans on the horizon - I am going to LA for the first time! Even though I hate packing my clothes and shoes etc, I actually like packing my toiletries so I am always on the look out for the perfect toiletries bag / wash bag / whatever you want to call it.

I'm Too Weak To Resist - Liberty x Apple Collaboration

Tomorrow sees the launch of the Apple x Liberty collaboration and how can they seriously expect me to resist?

The collection has cases for all your Apple essentials - iPhone, iPad and MacBooks. Perfect for all you busy busy folk who need to travel with all your devices, but want more than just a piece of neoprene to put around your precious [insert name of device here]. You'll be the envy of your fellow travellers, who you'll see sneaking a peak at your case out of the corner of their eye.

I know you'll probably want to know which ones I'll be wanting right? No? Ok. I'm just going to go ahead and tell you anyway, so here goes...

Liberty London 13" Business Case - In Edenham and Betsy Print. I wish the business case came in 15" though so that the next time I go somewhere and need to bring my laptop with me, I could bring it one of these.

Available at Liberty:  Online - 30th Nov // In-store - 1st Dec

Crowning Glory

Oops how slack of me, it's been nearly a month since I last posted.

In all fairness I have been distracted with mourning Lost, holiday research and booking our trip to Albi, and finally my birthday!

Speaking of which, my pals at the day job  bought me a lovely Jennifer Ouellette turban headband in an exclusive peacock Liberty print.  Lucky aren't I?

If you think you've seen this style of headband before, you prob have - it is a Blair Waldorf staple as all those who watch Gossip Girl will attest too.

I love it and think it would make a great holiday accessory - mainly because I love a turban. Just look at Grace Kelly on holiday...

Clearly, I wouldn't look like that, but it can't hurt to make an effort in the accessories department, even if you are just lying on the beach or lounging by the pool. After all, this is a much better look than sunburnt scalp!

Unfortunately I am not blessed with the dexterity to tie a head scarf, so that is why these turban headbands are a god-send. Now that I have this one, I of course want lots of other colour and print options.

Alternatively, I could just watch this tutorial on tying headscarves and turbans.
