Friday Favorites - Travel Necessities

It doesn't happen often, but I love jetting away!  There's just something about packing a bag that only has MY stuff in it that's so freeing!  No crayons, no wipies, no plastic cell phones - you know what I mean!  So, while Mike and I are enjoying a few kid-free days in Vegas, here's a few of my travel FAVS!
{ONE}
I recently listed this as a Friday Favorite but it was more of a wish at the time.  This is the Mamuye Tote from FashionABLE.  It's a little pricey but I bit the bullet and ordered it and, let me tell you, it's just a fabulous as I was hoping it would be!  The leather is amazing, the quality is awesome, and the straps are the perfect length (it doesn't get hung up on your elbow when you are trying to put it on your shoulder!).  Every product purchased through FashionABLE creates sustainable business in Africa.  They are committed to long-term solutions to fighting poverty and their main focus is creating opportunities for vulnerable women.  Every purchase creates jobs so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of the developing economy.  Their strategy is two-fold. They work with women to help them start small business cooperatives, and they partner with and require manufacturers to also employ women with their fair wages and fair hiring practices.  Purchasing with a purpose is my FAVORITE way to shop!

Check out their website!  If you find something you like, use this link for a 10% off coupon code!

Cassie from Hi Sugarplum recently blogged about this fabulous little crossbody from Nordstrom's and it couldn't get in my Shopping Cart fast enough!  Can you believe it's only $28?!?!  And, it wasn't even on sale!  This bag is definitely my FAVORITE purse right now!  It's the perfect size to keep all your necessities handy but not big enough to fit the kitchen sink.  It's perfection!

When I travel, I like to have all my info right at my fingertips and I knew when I came across this travel wallet, that it would become one of my travel FAVORITES.  You can find it here.

In case I haven't made it perfectly clear, I'm a sucker for bags - any size, any shape, and the more unique they are, the more I want them!  I saw this fabulous toiletries bag and, well, it's coming to Vegas with me!  It was another ModCloth find and you can find it here.

{FIVE}
And for my final travel necessity, I packed another fashionABLE FAVORITE - the Mehari Blanket.  It's light weight but large enough to actually cover more than your lap.  I love having my own little comfort item when I'm away from home. :)  And, don't forget the coupon code listed above if you find something on the FashionABLE website that you like.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with all your FAVORITE things!  Do you have any travel FAVORITES?  I have extra room in my bag - do tell!  :)
Have a blessed weekend!  Gig 'em and God bless!

  3. I love all of your picks! That Mamuye Tote is gorgeous. I love totes and I tend to purchase totes instead of purses (so I can carry everything I want to carry). LOL

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. I absolutely love the tote. I'm pinning this for later because I would love to purchase one soon - and for such a great cause as well. I was just telling my husband that I was going to need to replace my work bag soon. I think I just found it. And I love the blanket as well. Thanks so much for stopping the Simplified Life and linking up with us. I hope you can make it back this week too. Great to have you. ~Victoria @SimplifiedLife.net

    1. Victoria, you will absolutely LOVE the tote!!! After carrying it on our trip, it's turned into my daily bag too! I'm a SAHM but occasionally I have meetings where I need to look a little more pulled together :) and this bag works perfectly! And, it's made exceptionally well! You'll have to let me know when you get it! I just ordered the ABLE scarf! On it are statements made from the women about what they are now able to do with jobs from FashionABLE - how awesome is that?! Thanks for hosting! I'll definitely be back!
