I’ve been hemming and hawing over floating shelves for my kitchen since I bought and moved in last June. I looked at Ikea and hated the quality–twice.

Sean bought me this amazing–and jazzy in champagne leather–cactus pouch from the brilliant Amelie Mancini, for Christmas this year. It’s great in my black leather bag to carry all kinds of odds and ends like travel sized emergency advil, lip balm, and hand cream. I love it. Go, quick. Buy something from her. She’s incredible.
