Samsonite 4 Wheel Luggage | Macys
I haven’t traveled out of the country for business or vacation in about 2 years. So when I went to assess my luggage for an up-coming trip, I realized that it was time to go four wheelin’. Yes, the new Silhouette Sphere II from Samsonite has 4 glorious wheels. And while this technology isn’t new, I’ve been carting around a two wheel suit case for a decade and it’s definitely time to upgrade.

Other than the 4 wheels, there’s nothing too special about this new Samsonite bag other than I’m so looking forward to wheeling this around the airport with ease.
In order to pack with organization, I also decided to purchase packing cubes. I picked up the Eagle Creek Pack-it cubes from the Container Store. While these cubes were rather expensive, I’m hoping these will keep my smaller items (undies, bras, socks, t-shirts) organized into one neat and compressed block of clothing.

Next was a much needed makeup & toiletry bag by Eagle Creak. I have been using an old bag from Target for years and I’ve never found the darn thing very functional so now seemed like the time to try something new.

I’m going to try to be the minimalist hair, makeup, and skin care gal traveler (ha!). Ok, maybe not, but my goal is to pack all that I need into this toiletry bag. I’d like to use the detachable pouch for my makeup. The detachable bag will travel with me, not in my luggage, in case my luggage “misses its flight”.
I also purchased the Echo Backpack from the Container Store. This backpack is replacing an old one from REI which is an outdoor adventure type store. I purchased a backpack that was made from recycled materials, only a few years later, the material started to flake from the inside and I’d have this flaky plastic residue all over my items. So much for being an eco-conscious buyer.
Anyway, the new backpack is a little more contemporary than sporty and I’m pretty happy with the purchase.

Lastly, I purchased this cute owl luggage tag. I’m hopping this critter will help me spot my black luggage in a sea of black bags rotating on the baggage carousel.
