Travel Wahhh?

Travel Wallets.
Everybody needs one.
Not any travel wallet…
An Aspinal travel wallet!

Okay maybe I am getting too excited? But my gosh I do love a bit of organisation especially when it comes to holidays.

Let me hook you up with the site:

I ended up with the Jet Black Lizard with Red Suede. Now before you have a heart attack at the price… let me tell you I  am a thrifty son of a B…. I got my wallet for £40. Okay £40 squid is a lot of money.  But I was originally looking at travel wallets from Disaster Designs:

This is plastic and it is £34… for an extra £6 you are getting real leather and suede, plus something a little more classy and is going to get better with age, not worse.

Now if you are still with  me I bet you are wondering how I  got my wallet so cheap?
Well it was all down to ebay. I went onto ebay and sourced some wallets that had never been used. There are lots of faulty ones or ones which have been embossed. Forget those!
I got mine from a seller who had it all in the box it was just left on the window sill for a year and they were selling it cheap because the box had discoloration. The Wallet itself is in absolute pristine condition. If however you are going to look on ebay you need to be prepared for accepting what ever colour is available. I wanted a the blossom pink but this is not a common colour. What ever you decide I am sure it will be lovely.

Why is it so good I hear you ask!
Wellllll take a look at the pictures first!

The quality – They are handmade Italian leather and luxuriously lined in suede.
It features one large gusseted compartment for currency .
There are four tabbed sections for safe storage. These are labeled up as:
Tickets, Documents, Passports & Other
There is also an open pocket for boarding passes and a zipped compartment for coins.
If you got it from the actual website they will personalize it for you with your initials. I am sure if you took it to Timpsons or somewhere they could emboss it if wanted.

Do not be fooled by the size it is quite large which helps if you are traveling as a couple. If you are like me and my partner there is usually one organised person and a really chilled out person. I am the organised. I am able to fit in both passports, all of the flight, hotel, insurance information in here. Plenty of space. I will personally keep my foreign currency in this travel wallet and then swap over my currency into my actual purse when we get to Mexcio (or wherever in future).

For me this is piece of mind having everything in one place and not having to rummage through our bags to find out passports or papers or tickets.

I will be using this when I go Mexico in August so I will report back about how it works in action! So far its a 5/5 from me!

Lots of love





Wheres Kirstie?

I am so sorry I haven’t been keeping you up to date on my arts, crafts and juicy things I have brought! In between being a bridesmaid, trying to have a social life, earning that ca$h money, maintaining a long distance relationship and not being disowned as a member of my family… I really do not have much time!

To keep you in the loop I have done a flash post to share a few little things I have been doing, brought and even completed….

First of all today…
I found myself running though the streets of Saffron Lane Estate in my Beauty & the Beast PJ’s… First off – Saffron Lane Estate isn’t exactly the most… (how can I put this nicely?) desirable of areas. Secondly I was in a frantic panic as my dogs had seemingly got out of the house and decided to go roaming the streets!
I know it is awful to say but there are lots of not very nice people out there at the moment who snatch up dogs for breeding (sorry puppy snatchers they have no balls), as well as using them for dog fighting. Luckily they were found at the top of the street after a lovely man saw them and tried to mush them back home!
Here is a cheeky picture of the naughty boys!20170523_133530_resized

Another exciting thing was my auntie got to go on holiday (with work). When I say with work… she is a carer for my brother who is on the severe end of the autism spectrum.
My auntie and grandma look after my brother for work. Nice to know that he is in capable and caring hands.
Tracey brought me back a little treat from the airport! Paco Rabanne Olympea! How I love this smell!
A very light smell very different to the Lady Million (which I also love) but subtle and wearable for everyday!


Another exciting thing was I went to my works Summer party which to be completely honest I wasn’t very hyped to go to. It ended up being a really lovely night with some amazing work friends. When I say lovely… I was on my way home at 11 as I was way to drunk to continue the night haha!


I posted about this little dress a while ago… It was sat in my draw unfinished and I  spend one Saturday night watching horror films and completing the final touches to my first ever pattern. I will be doing the written pattern when I get round to it but its all completed and I am pretty proud of my first creation by eye! YAY

Last but 100% not least I brought a travel wallet! I have an upcoming post and review on this as it so darn amazing! So I wont give too much away! Keep posted!


I am hoping you have all been well and have enjoyed the bit of warm weather we have had (UK friends)! Hope everyone else has had a lovely weekend! Back to the grind tomorrow!

Have a blessed day and lots of love !
