Packing for Tulum

For those of you who follow my on Instagram, you will know that I am officially on countdown to my upcoming holiday to Tulum, Mexico. The sun, sea and sand combined with cerviche, cervezas and cenotes (big natural pool things) I have high hopes for this being a truly awesome break.

One of my favourite things about going on holiday is buying up a few new items to add to my (limited) holiday wardrobe to get into the spirit of things. Tulum's hippy, relaxed vibe is perfect for adding a few bohemian additions to the proceedings and I wanted to share a few things I will be investing in from one of my favourite online boutiques -

First up is this gorgeous woven pom pom basket, which retails at £32. It is ethically made in Morocco and comes with a variety of different colours. Its perfect for the beach to hold your suncream, Kindle and sunglasses not to mention your Hamman beach towel, which leads me on to my next choice...

Hamman towels make perfect beach towels - they absorb water quickly, they are thin and light for packing in your suitcase and they look gorgeous. These ones come in a range of colours and patterns and start from £32 each. What I love about both the basket and these, is that once the holiday is over you can definitely find a place for these in the home for storage, or as pretty hand towels in the bathroom.

Finally, how beautiful are these handmade leather slippers? Perfect for slouching around in with a pretty cover up. They are light and barely take up any space in your luggage so literally why wouldn't you have a pair?

Stay tuned for more about Tulum when I get back.
