What I Brought Back: Mexico City & Tulum
While there will be a handful of Jet Lag Journals in the somewhat near future from our A + S trip across the border to Mexico, I couldn’t help but at least share my souvenirs I brought back. First up and above are my Mexico City treasures (many were found at La Lagunilla flea market): A wooden picture frame inlaid with a floral shell design; a piece of artwork from a local artist who takes vintage family portraits and layers them with colorful designs; my very cute Mexican peasant top; a metal basket; a vintage peacock ashtray; vintage wall hooks for hat and necklace hangings; and a beautiful azul blanket. Not pictured: a Frida magnet I had to pick up from Casa Azul.
My beautiful Tulum tokens: A Coqui Coqui Rosa Fresca candle (handmade right from the perfumery in Tulum), a boar’s bone bracelet with rose gold rivets (also from Coqui Coqui), and two hand stitched pillow covers.
Nothing beats a healthy collection of mementos to remind you of far away travels once you’re home–am I right?
