Sanctum Travel Bags
You're unlikely to find us hanging out much at Sanctum, Soho's 'rock 'n' roll hotel'. (In bed early with a spritz of This Works Deep Sleep and a mug of Ovaltine, us.) However, they do make some very marvellous sponge bags. Designed by (yes) a famous tattoo artist, Dan Gold - who's 'inked' everyone from Kate Moss to Britney Spears, our favourite from the fairly extensive collection of different sized bags is this Rose Skull Cosmetic Purse, which fits a generous stash of make-up.
But we've also bagged (as it were) the Biker Skull Large Travel Bag for an upcoming 18-year-old's birthday, and plan to fill it with great grooming essentials (there's room for quite a regime). And we know he'll just love it.
So: we'll never get tattoos. We're about as likely to get on a motorcycle as abseil down The Shard. But these? They do sort of bring out our inner rock chick.
(She's in there somewhere.)
