Deep winter always makes me wish for two things: 1) that I could wear a parka jacket without looking like the michelin man and 2) that I was somewhere warmer. So today I’m sharing a few of my favourite travel things, items curated and ready to be plucked for a winter getaway.
Not only are BagyBags pretty to look at, but they’re thoughtfully designed. This backpack has 9 pockets and triple-stitched seams, meaning it won’t burst when I (inevitably) over pack it with all of the fun stuff I find.
Here’s hoping that a gorgeous passport holder will prevent me losing my passport! Made by hand in Sydney, Luisa’s Etsy shop has many more travel ready items including roomy tote bags and sunglass cases.
AnnaCarlaBeachwear is totally my cup of (long island iced) tea: bright and fun in interesting cuts to help stay covered up without feeling like the kid forced to wear a legionnaire cap and an asymmetrical zinc smear.
I usually take more scarves than clothes when travelling. They’re an accessory, a shoulder cover, a head scarf, and according to Pinterest a handbag (although I’m yet to master it).
Like I said I really like scarves for travelling. This one is hand dyed just outside of Melbourne with natural, plant-based dyes.
I’m that person on the flight moisturising my hands and applying lip balm every 5 minutes, and what better to get you in the mood for sunshine than toasted coconut lip balm? Ooooh it even sounds like a holiday! Say it with me: toasted coconut.

I’m an avid list writer and love the idea of a travel planner to help me to remember the important stuff. It doesn’t hurt that it also makes a killer flat lay.
You can see the rest of my list here, but I’d love to know what Etsy treats would you take?
