Volcanoes, Travelling, Rounders and Pimm’s
Despite the Icelandic Volcanic Ash floating miles above our heads like a sci-fi Doctor Who episode, here in London we’ve been blessed with a beautiful weekend filled with rounders in the park, barbecues and a fair amount of Pimm’s. Everyone knows someone who is marooned somewhere (now aptly labelled VAV – Victim of Volcanic Ash). Some are luckier than others, Handpicked Board member James, is stuck in New York but a friend of Managing Director Natasha is supposed to be getting married in France this weekend.
We’ve got hoards of suggestions for the weary traveller. Try an Abahna Mini Bag filled with little bottles of 100ml foam, 100ml lotion and 90g soap, perfect for hand luggage liquid limits.
In our new catalogue (due to land on doormats at the beginning of May) we’ve dedicated a whole three pages to our new Travel Section including lots of essential new products that we’ve already decided we can’t live without. We’ve also asked our Creative Director Amanda, to share her bestest Travel Tips. She’s definitely the person to ask – she has been writing and reviewing all aspects of travel in lots of exciting far flung places for publications such as Red, Brides and House & Garden.
