Leather Zip Pouches

One of these days I’ll stop posting leather travel accessories that are more of a luxury than a necessity, but for now, they are catching my attention pretty much everywhere I go. I really like the black; too bad it has more of a feminine zipper pull or it could appeal to the masculine sort as well.

“A useful pouch goes from makeup bag to clutch. Italian lambskin hand-crafted into three versatile sizes. Perfect for traveling. Choose pewter, copper, black or gold.”

Small Leather Zip Pouch, 8½” x 3¾”, $75.00

DIY hand sanitizer

When you’re traveling, anti-bacterial hand washes are great to have because more often than not, you’re eating on the run. My good friend D. over at Less is More Balanced has come up with a recipe to make your own hand sanitizer which not only smells amazing and really works, but also is a genius way to keep all those little bottles out of the landfills.

Make a solution of 60% of alcohol and 40% distilled water and then add a dash of your favorite essential oil. Peppermint smells amazing, but I’m sure any oil would work just as well. Since it is liquid, you will want to put it in an atomizer or spray bottle (I like the one’s sold by Muji) because that will make application easier.

Compact Paper Soap Pod

This whole “no-liquids-on-the-plane” thing has really put a kink in my packing procedures. I used to be an all carry-on, all the time, type of girl. If I couldn’t carry it with me, I probably didn’t need it…and packing all my toiletries in a ziplock baggie to show everyone in line at security leaves me a little non-plussed. Anyway, I like the idea of this paper soap. Each little compact comes with 50 wafer thin soap leaves which disolve with a little water.

Zip Plastic Case by MUJI

I bought a few of these in various sizes and I’ve got to say they’ve really made an impact on me. They’re endlessly handy. I use them to organize my office supplies (pens, mini stapler, paper clips) for my portable office or for use on my desk, but they’re also really handy for cosmetics or keeping all those loose items in your purse, messenger bag or tote together.
