Only a fortnight ago, I came back from a lovely relaxing holiday in Lanzarote. I quite often travel with a ridiculous amount of clutter shoved in to my suitcase, and it usually results in a ‘heavy’ sticker being attached to my case at check-in at the very least, and very occasionally an additional charge. Not good. This time, I was determined to streamline my packing and really think about the items I took with me as my travel companions.
I needed functional, high quality accessories for this trip. As well as relaxing, I also wanted to do a lot of writing and a lot of shopping. Busy B came to the rescue with their New Fashion range. I was already a huge fan of Busy B products. Sean and I buy their couples’ calendar at the start of every year, and it has become tradition now that I buy both of my brothers and their families the family calendars so they can keep track of each parent’s and child’s weekly appointments and activities. I love how Busy B have a solution for every personal organisation problem.
I took both the Pretty Little Pouch and the Pen & Case on holiday with me. Both are beautifully packaged, and it felt such a shame to actually take them out of their boxes and use them! The Pretty Little Pouch was perfect for carrying both my passport and my Euros around with me. It’s a super soft faux leather navy pouch, with a gold embossed ‘little pretty things’ motif. Stunning in real life. It has one larger compartment and an even smaller one inside, which zips up. This was useful to keep my Sterling money in for when I arrived back in the UK. I carried the pouch with me the whole time, and despite heat, suntan lotion and many, many drinks being in close proximity it has returned to the UK with me in an immaculate condition. I love it and it’s coming with me to Crete next week for a work trip as well, as is the Pen & Case.
The case that holds the pen is a sturdy yet soft faux leather case, with a gorgeous print. And the pen inside is lovely to use, very smooth to write with and of high quality. I didn’t expect to be raving about a pen on my blog but it really was a pleasure to use and I made many a scribble with it over the fortnight away. This pretty little set is also accompanying me on my next trip.
The New Fashion range from Busy B includes other pretty yet functional pieces such as a travel wallet and different sized notebooks, and I’m dying to pick them all up. If you are heading away on a trip this Summer, or just want some really pretty accessories for home, go and take a look at their website here.
