And what do you need in your hand luggage? A passport of course! I took with me the linen sprig passport holder to keep my passport safe and protected. The cover is made from the standard CK hard wearing oilcloth, which makes it sturdier (and prettier!) than standard passport covers. This is currently reduced to only £5!
Along with that, I also took with me the matching luggage tag, which is a bargain at only £3.50. This went on my suitcase to make it noticeable to us once it was on the baggage belt, and also would be useful in case the suitcase went astray, as it comes with a card for you to fill in your details.
I also take a ticket holder around with me in my bag too, in fact, I take two around with me. One for my railcard and train tickets, and one for my blog business cards. They’re ever so handy, and cute! Who says business has to be boring? And a bargain at only £4!
At home in the UK, I like to use a nice big wallet purse to keep all my cards and money in. This Cath Kidston Linen Spring zip wallet is perfect, as it has a nice big zip compartment for coins, which splits into two sections. And then the inside of the wallet also opens out and has 12 card slots, as well as lots more hidden note compartments! It’s currently in the sale for only £17.50! When I was on holiday however, I kept things a bit more simple and used the super cute clasp purse, reduced to £8. It has a little brass clasp closure, with the Cath Kidston label inside.
All of these accessories are made from the hard wearing, long lasting oilcloth fabric; unique to Cath Kidston. Which means that these items will last for many years to come, and are easy to wipe clean. And they’re also all available in other prints. I was kindly sent this set from The Lifestyle Boutique, the great value luxury brand store based in Oxfordshire. They offer free gift wrapping on all items, and free delivery on orders over £30.
