Travel Time!

By the time you read this post I’ll be in Houston celebrating my birthday with my favorite cousins. I’m going to relax with spa treatments, food and fun. I’m not even taking my baby with me, ahem, not my husband – my Macbook! I don’t know how I’ll survive without it, but I’ll manage.

Anyway, since I’m going out of town, that means I'll have to go to my least favorite place on earth – the dreadful airport. Even with high fuel prices and the impending recession, people still have to get places. So if you’re going to travel, you might as well go in style with these super chic suitcases and luggage sets!

Hopefully, these stylish travel bags won’t get lost in the shuffle!

Do you usually have your bags checked or do you typically carry on?

Happy B-day. Spa for all of us. I love the pink luggage. I own a Target set. i can always find my luggage at baggage claim even in London's busy Heathrow Airport. Travel safely.

It's your biiiiirthday! I'm mad you didn't tell me!! Happy biiiiiirthday!! I hope you have a great one in TX. The good news is, flying out of NYC, I find, isn't THAT bad. Not bad as ATL. I have waaay too many pieces of luggage. At least 12 located in about 4 cities in Florida. Haaa!! Don't even know why but Target does have those cute 5-for 1 for $59.99 sets. Enjoy your weekend!!

i would carry one every time if international rules weren't so strict. especially since my luggage went missing for too many days in Madrid.

Great selections luggage. I like Delsey Pink.
FYI- now you can protect your luggage by covering it with plastic that you can buy at the airport for $7.00
Von voyage!!

Happy Birthday!!! Taurus Love!

BGG, as usual your topic is right on point. I just got back from AZ and I'm going to Atlanta this weekend, then Dallas for the week. My luggage is busted... literally and figuratively. My larger luggage has a broken zipper and my smaller luggage has a broken handle.

I've been using a gigantic duffle, which gets the job done, but it's about be be on its last leg as well.

I LOVE the polka dot set from Macy's. Matter of fact, I saw one at the airport and I mentioned to a girlfriend that I needed it in my life. The DVF set is lovely as well and that discount is sweet.

Oh yes, I'm going to Macy's tomorrow!

Happy Bday! Hope you'll share your experiences with us when you return!
I try whenever possible to carry what I need on the plane. I hate waiting in those lines for my bags. I've become pretty good with packing only the necessities!

BGG, I love the airport! It's the perfect place to people watch! I love your pics too especially the pink and the polk dots are adorable. I usually check my bags because I just can't deal with that whole travel size crap. I just pack what I need and hope it gets there when and where I do.
