Vacations are a fabulous thing... getting away from your daily stress and relaxing, seeing new places, meeting new people, eating too much and drinking too much, and just having a good time. The only problem with vacations is getting ready for them, and for me that always starts with the dreaded packing of the suitcase. It never fails that I wait until the night before I leave to start, pack too much and forget something (usually a phone charger, which I now have in multiples!). If you're like me, never fear! There are some new travel gadgets and packing tips that will get you ready to take off in no time.
If you are looking for some of the best travel equipment, suitcases and paraphernalia, look no further than Tumi at Miracle Mile Shops. Tumi's new suitcase line, Vapor, is made out of poly-carbonate plastic (sounds impressive so far!) that is super strong and super light. Perfect for us over packers! For instance the 29" suitcase weighs only 12 pounds... that means I can stick 38 pounds worth of stuff in the suitcase before I have to pay the overweight baggage charge! Tumi also has packing cubes to help keep your clothing organized and wrinkle-free. And, they have this cool Mobile Power Pack that holds 5 charges that can be used for your cell phone, BlackBerry, iPhone, iPad, iPod, iEtc. Plug it in before your trip and you are ready to go!
If you are a Brighton Collectibles collector, they have suitcases, cosmetic bags, totes, pouches, cross-body handbags that are perfect for traveling and you can get them so they all match! Perfect for those of us who are OCD or like to have matching accessories. You can get these travel goodies in traditional Brighton fabrics and designs, or if you are feeling wild, they have a coated canvas collection that is available in zebra print with red leather trim.
Now we need to talk about what goes into these new suitcases. With almost every airlines charging for luggage, we all need to pack smart. Here are some tips so you can maximize your vacation wardrobe and minimize your pre-trip stress:
Most importantly, enjoy your trip and don't worry about forgetting anything. If you're coming to Vegas, you can always stop at Miracle Mile Shops to pick up what you left at home.
