SPANX & ZEMP: AN IDEAL TRAVEL COMPANION
SPANX & ZEMP: IDEAL TRAVEL COMPANIONS
They say that once the travel bug bites, it’s an obsession that never stops. After travels abroad in my early 20’s, I slowed down on trips away for many reasons but this year I’ve decided to make it a priority again. Luckily for me, reconsidering my travel essentials to keeping packing light, smart and multi-functional has been easier thanks Spanx.
I’m going to be completely frank here, I’ve previously been the kind of girl would rather haul extra luggage around and pay for extra baggage weight than leave that ‘one little thing’ I might need at home. But my mindset has started shifting to less is more generally, so learning to pack lighter was a given. I got to put this to the test on a quick road trip to the Waterberg to view some game and catch the last of the summer sunshine, before spending a night staycationing at the incredible Pablo House, Melville.

My travel companion for the weekend. Obsessed with how spacious my Bobo Weekender bag is!
Now I never feel guilty for packing more than I should.
I’m not always there when you call, but I’m always on tiiiime!

Travel essentials for a quick out of town trip for work. Loving my @zemplifestyle leather duffel bag & watch.

travel companions- no matter the destination- are well selected modern classics that stand the test of time.
My only other addition to these travel essentials would be sunscreen (always and forever),
a yoga mat to stretch out after long trips and a loved one to share the memories with @_dominiquejade_

My personalized @zemplifestyleleather travel bag has me so ready for a weekend away. day.
My new @zemplifestyle Manana Watch is my perfect companion and keeps me on time all the time at a very good price.

How good are your packing skills? I’m definitely more of an over than an under packer. Cos what if the weather or my mood changes?!
Glad my @zemplifestyle Bobo weekender bag has more than enough space to accommodate my cray packing habits.
Also waking up early to repack so I can get more should become my new jam.
Getting a head start on mails and making sure I still have time for a caffeine boost with some help from my Eleven Eleven timepiece.
Who’s a morning person? Please send tips on how I can be better at being one.

Classic meets contemporary.
The former is my late grandfather’s film camera that to be honest I’m still coming to understand (slowly and frustratingly) while the latter is the beautifully minimal Eleven Eleven timepiece by @zemplifestyle.
Apart from the luxury of time and being able to capture moments within it, my only addition to the perfect weekend getaway would be the ability to eat all the grilled cheese sandwiches without putting my waistline in detriment.
My love for an impromptu weekend away is no secret. Especially if the destination in question is the Cape West Coast.
In the few years I’ve been a travel writer, I have become somewhat of an expert on packing light.
No longer content to carry myriad pieces of luggage containing multiple outfit changes, my ideal weekend bag holds a few considered essentials – leaving of course, sufficient space for my camera equipment and styling props.
I recently stumbled upon @zemplifestyle – a purveyor of classic leather luggage and quality timepieces. In desperate need of a new leather holdall after my vintage Brazilian bag finally packed it in (hehehe), I opted for the Bobo weekender bag and used @zemplifestyle’s optional monogramming service to stamp my surname into my bag. Set in silver against the rich chestnut hue of the leather, this added extra personalised my luggage and made me feel rather posh using it.
