Earrings Made from our resin, which is 40–percent recycled material, these are some of my favourites because of the bold coral–punch colour. I always bring multiple options in my travel jewellery box, though.

Perfume Oil perfumes don’t trigger my fragrance sensitivity. My favourite, Maison Louis Marie No. 04, blends cinnamon, nutmeg and sandalwood for a soft scent that isn’t overpowering but lasts all day.

Coveralls I’m a jumpsuit girl, so when a friend introduced me to Nooworks, a women–run brand out of San Francisco, I quickly became obsessed. These cat coveralls are fun, fashionable and super–comfortable.

Bag The accordion–style fabric makes this Toronto–designed Hoi Bo bag a staple because it holds everything I need and keeps its shape. Plus, I always get compliments about the cool look.

Sunglasses Being an accessories person, I never travel without sunglasses. A friend recommended Australian brand Le Specs, and we’ve even started carrying them in our store at The Forks in Winnipeg.
