Travelling for beauty launches and events sounds like a lot of fun, and it is, but the actual packing part can sometimes be a nightmare.
I hate having my clothes messed up in suitcases and certain items can end up looking rather ratty. Take for instance, your crisp black jacket. Fold it up in a travel bag and you’re almost guaranteed to get if full of creases. So how do you stop this without carrying it in it’s own suit bag (so not a good look for girls)? Well, I recently travelled with my TUMI Arrivé travel bag for the first time and don’t think I’ll be travelling without it again.
I’ve got the TUMI Arrivé carry-on in Sable, and I recently discovered what makes this bag so dang fabulous.
Let’s start with how gorgeous it looks; loads of zips and pockets, a combination lock and a pop out handle that makes gliding this bag simple and easy. It’s even got a handle that allows you to clip a laptop bag or vanity case onto the bag, so you don’t end up lugging loads of bags. It’s even got it’s own raincoat!
On a recent trip to Cape Town it was raining in Durban (as usual, although today it’s blistering hot and I ain’t complaining:)) , anyway, I had to walk from the longterm parking to the airport building, which is all out doors, so I slipped my little rain coat over my bag. It fits snugly around the bag and clips securely at the bottom. I had to check it in as my bag was loaded with shoes (a girl needs options you know), and left the rain coat on. When I collected it off the rotating belt at the Cape Town airport, my bag got many impressed looks as I removed it’s raincoat and wheeled it out the exit.
My fave thing about this bag is the hidden suit compartment, ideal for jackets and even hanging dresses. Check it out…
