It’s Wednesday, yay! When? Huh? What day? Time  to visualize my dream shopping list…

{ 1 } Scrubba portable wash bag – Perfect for long trips and camping, Scurbba is the world’s smallest washing machine. There are only six steps to washing your clothes while traveling, camping or on cruises. Nifty.

{ 2 } Flight 001 Nothing to Declare tote bag – Hi, I’m Ody and I have too many tote bags. I shouldn’t be getting more, but this one is totes cool (pun intended).

{ 3 } Photojojo Pocket Spotlight – Though I tote my camera with me all day when I travel, I actually leave it when I’m just going out to have dinner and drinks. With a smaller, lighter bag in tow, I’d take all my food photos and look-I’m-out-at-night pics with my smart phone, only to look through my gallery of either dark and grainy or too bright and alien-eyed photos that aren’t instagrammable at all! (What horror, right?) This Pocket Spotlight seems to solve that issue.

{ 4 } Dr. Martens Coralie boot – I saw these quilted Docs at Steffl a few weeks ago and immediately fell in love with them.  I have already confessed my love for Doc Martens here, and I already own a few pairs, but the quilt on the Coralie gives the usually tough boots a bit of a chic touch. Love ’em.

one ❤ With natural ingredients that fight drowsiness, exhaustion, fatigue, dehydration, and vertigo, TravelEase spray by Sprayology  is the perfect antidote for jet lag. Since I’m very prone to motion sickness, any other way to combat it aside from sleeping (which is so effective, but I tend to miss out on in-flight movies, stunning sunsets and beautiful clouds) is very welcome. 

two ❤ While I love to capture moments during my trips on instagram, I also love to keep a small travel journal where I can stick on tickets, receipts and stickers. I found this logbook on etsy and fell in love with it. 

three ❤ Hopefully someday, I’ll be less dependent on the internet, but in the meantime, this pocket wifi seems like the best invention ever.

I admit, I went a little crazy with my spending after my birthday and since I’m saving for a big trip for the end of this year, I have to really track my spending and live frugally. It’s a practice in restraint, but you know what I like to do? I go online, look at the goods, click ‘Add to cart’ and then close the tab. It works for me! I get the rush of acquiring the items by adding them to a cart, but by closing the tab, I avoid buyer’s remorse and the regret that goes with looking at your bill. That said, I loved looking at the following items which I would love take with me while traveling.

Tory Burch for Fitbit bracelet
Tory Burch for Fitbit Metal Hinged Bracelet: You might have noticed how much I love to walk here,here, here, and here, and I like to track my steps. Fitbit keeps me active and hitting my daily 10,000-step target is one of life’s little triumphs.

 

S'well water bottle
Another way to stay healthy during trips is to keep hydrated. S’well water bottles have nice designs, but the Wood Collection is special because for every Wood bottle sold, the brand’s partner, American Forests, will plant one tree. My favorite parts? S’well bottles keeps your drinks cold for 24 hours, hot for 12, the bottles don’t condensate (condensation is always a hassle for me when I have to put a bottle in my bag), and – get this – 25oz holds an entire bottle of wine. Sold!

 

Rags2Riches Kena Tote
The Rags2Riches Kena Tote is a fashionable and eco-ethical bag that I would love to carry with me while getting lost in little side streets. How amazing would this look on travel pics? What I love about Rags2Riches is they upcycle scrap cloth, organic materials and indigenous fabrics, and providing jobs and training to artisans in poor communities in the Philippines. Read more about them here.

On The Map Necklace Seattle's Travelshop
This delicate necklace with a cutout map charm from Seattle’s Travel Shop is a cute and simple way to show your love for travel. I’m into gold accessories right now, and I love this.

 

Red Envelope leather travel caseRedEnvelope markets this as a toiletry bag “perfect for the man on the go” but if it keeps things organized while traveling, looks sleek and sophisticated, and made of beautiful leather, it is also perfect for me.

Elizabeth and James Hazel blazer
I’m searching for the perfect white blazer, and this one from Elizabeth and James seems perfectly upgrade-worthy.

 

Tile is a revolutionary little gadget that you can attach to anything. Its GPS and iPhone app can keep track if you lose it. Brrrrilliant.

So tell me, what items are you wishing for? Got any cool {window} shopping tips for me?
