I’m always looking for great products. Partially because I love “stuff”. Even in this age of minimalism or “tidying”, I am a girl that loves to have what she needs when she needs it.

I was introduced to the Travel Pillow Throw & Tuck by its creator- interior designer and boutique owner- Ursalie Smith. Ursalie owns a boutique on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side in NYC called Rococo Design where I had the pleasure doing a book signing for my book Careers in the Fashion Industry.

She has wonderful home accessories at the store. She created the Throw & Tuck pillow for travel and home. GENIUS!!! It is both smart AND functional. I took it to Florida last in November for a “test run” and it was THE sensible travel accessory.

First of all, it’s small enough that it fits inside of your suitcase. It also has a carrying strap that fits over the handle of your luggage of your carryon so you can use it while traveling.

We all know traveling can be stressful so you want to keep things your are carrying to a minimum. That’s why I love that there is a small blanket attached to the pillow that easily tucks neatly into the back pocket when you are not using it! Now you only have to carry and keep track of ONE item.

The pillow is made using an anti-pill fleece fabric so it is soft and cozy but it is firm giving you full head and neck support when laying on it.

The Travel Pillow Throw & Tuck comes in 3 colors: navy, grey or black. I even took it with me to the film set where I working as an actress shooting a short film and I used it while waiting for my scenes in my holding area. It is also ideal to keep in the car for road trips or on your couch as a decorative throw pillow!
