Travel essentials. 

For me, part of the intoxicating allure of travel lies in the anticipation; the preparation, the planning, the packing. I delight in hours spent pouring over maps, penning detailed lists that are inevitably lost and never looked at again, obsessively checking the weather and packing and then repacking some more. Here, four things I can't leave home without...

- Gold trinkets -

I was lucky enough to spend a year traveling. Otherwise known as the year with the severely limited wardrobe. I learned accessories have the power to transform any outfit and I never leave the house without my St. Christopher necklace. Find the most perfect gold rings at Catbird, Odette New YorkRachel Boston and Another Feather

- Passport -

Goes without saying. Who doesn't love a good stamp. 

- Camera -

I love the romance of shooting film. Taking the film to be developed? Useless. Ten rolls of film stare at me as I type, begging to be processed. Recently I've been using Artifact Uprising (inspired by the disappearing beauty of the tangible)  to bring my iPhone photos to life. Printed photographs by Natalie McComas

- Moleskine books -

For penning thoughts aboard long bus journeys. For saving ticket stubs, sketches and good memories. For all those lists. I like the Moleskine Volant journal

My first weekend in New York for months and I'm falling in love with her all over again. I spent a luxuriously selfish weekend eating and reading and walking, and then eating some more. If you're in New York, don't miss the Sheep Station (sheep takeover of a former gas station) and the Irving Penn exhibition at Pace Gallery.
