This bag makes my heart sing! There's just nothing like it - the leather we used was a rare vintage find and this feels like the right occasion to mix old and new. A little history and experience go a long way to soften unfamiliar territory.
|One perk of expecting another girl is already having most of what we need. Still, it was so nice to receive a special new layette from a dear friend. We'll bring baby home in this adorable pilot hat and luscious kimono style set from Makié (pictured below).
I'm packing simple toiletries like face wipes, mist, and a travel deodorant, plus a tiny tube of hand cream and an even tinier nail file. This is not the time to risk a maddening hangnail!
|This (everlasting) hairbrush and comb have always ranked high on my list of "beauty products."
|The Divine line from L'Occitane and Weleda's body oils are a sure way to extend the pregnancy glow; bonus points for their excellent aromatherapy.
|My first frantic words after Sybil's birth were, "are my eyes okay?!?" I was legitimately convinced that I had lost them along the way. This time I'm packing a lavender eye pillow to give my "matia" some much deserved TLC...and on that note...
|These little peppermint towelettes from Herban Essentials are a potent refreshment! I'll rub them around my collarbone or ankles when I need a cooling zing.
|...packing light doesn't mean that I can't bring something frivolous, like this evil eye (aka mati) talisman from Coral & Tusk. Better safe than sorry ;)
|I'm bringing along my most loved perfume, something I wear when I want to create a special memory.
|A button down nightshirt to sleep in and Sybil's generous contribution: her own My First Bunny. Ready to go!
