Are you traveling for the holidays? It’s that time of year where many of us hit the road to visit family & friends! And that means packing is involved- my least favorite thing to do.
I’m headed to Virginia this week to spend Thanksgiving with Alex’s family. We hit the road super early on Wednesday morning (like 4:00 am early) in order to beat the holiday traffic. I’m totally ok with long cars….but I’m not ok when it comes to packing!
Do you procrastinate as well? Or just throw a bunch of shit into your bag & hope it zips? SAME GIRL! I needed to get a more organized method of packing to alleviate the stress and make packing less time consuming!
So needless to say I was THRILLED when Irene from TRVL Design reached out to introduce me to her very chic travel cases & bags. All of her products are color coordinated & designed to work together. Bonus: when not in use, these bags can nest within each other! Love that space saving element.
I like to apply my same theory of if you look good, you’ll feel good to my suitcase. If everything has a home & is packed away neatly in cute little bags- the more I would look forward to actually packing! Plus how much easier is it to pack when you know exactly what items go where.
For example, the Getaway Bag is something I will use for cosmetics. I love that there is a separate zippered pocket for my makeup brushes. And there’s plenty of room to fit an eyeshadow palette! Oh, did I mention that your bags can be monogrammed??? How special is that! Not only a cute touch, but this personalization really makes these cases great gifts.
The Glam Bag, is a great versatile bag. It’s roomy & fits most of my toiletries (including my long electric toothbrush). I also showed how most skincare products can fit in the Facecase! A great feature is the clear PVC so you can see easily what’s packed inside. This would be great to use when flying. PS there are tons of other clear cases in different sizes as well, check them out here.
One of the cutest & one of my favorite bags is the Baby Glam bag. It’s tiny & square in shape. I would throw this in my purse with jewelry that I didn’t want packed away. This is also great for everyday use to carry lipgloss, hair ties or whatever else you may currently have floating around the bottom of your purse. And when not in use, it fits perfectly into the clear Facecase bag! Again, love the fact that you can monogram these pieces!
Now to get a bang for your buck, I highly suggest the Luxe Travel Case (a more expensive option retails for around $80, however you get 3 bags for the price of one).
This buttery vegan leather bag contains to smaller zippered cases inside (one of the same leather, one clear). I highly suggest investing in this if you travel a lot! The inside is lined in clear plastic (easy to clean) and great for your toiletries. Again, when not in use- the two smaller cases nest perfectly inside. There are tons of other pieces made of this same super soft leather & more colors available. Local people, you can shop this collection at She La La and Lillian August! There is a smaller case in this same leather that is specifically for jewelry, might have to treat myself to that this holiday season!
Lastly, the incredibly chic Voyage Clutch. I LOVE that this bag is functional & can help keep your toiletries, makeup or hair products organized while traveling, but also be used a purse! I would totally rock this clutch for a night out while on vacation! Bags that have multiple uses are simply the best in my eyes.
Bottom line, having a well coordinated suitcase with everything having a home will make your life so much easier.
Want to keep your clothes organized as well- TRVL Design also makes packing cubes! I love how all of these bags color coordinate (more colors available online), most can be monogrammed & the quality is top notch. Also, the inside of these bags feature a fun animal print! And the cute bamboo pull on these bags adds another layer of luxe. All of these bags are reasonably priced & totally make great gifts (get them monogrammed!) Happy Travels this Holiday Season!
