Get Travel Ready with Samsonite Luggage!

Travel season is all year ’round! I’ve been traveling so much in the last two months that I need a vacation from my “vacations”. I have traveled from NYC- PITT-TOKYO-DC-PITT-NYC and now LA next week. Yes, that’s only in the last 8 weeks. I have been lucky enough to have luggage that keeps up with my jet setting and gives me the ability to travel in style! 

I am in love with my Samsonite luggage. My NEW Stryde Glider has SOLD out on their website but I did find it on another website and it’s 30% currently!! Direct link to purchase is HERE. It comes in two colors; Slate Blue (the one I have) and Charcoal.

Just to give you an idea on how much this suitcase can hold in a Woman’s world….when I flew over to Tokyo I brought 13 outfits, 5 pairs of shoes and 3 handbags. TRUE STORY. Maybe I’m a good packer? Maybe it’s the suitcase? I’m going with both, haha.

Product Details:

  • Exterior dimensions: 24.25″ x 24.2″ x 13.5″ (includes wheels)
  • Packing dimensions; 23.7″ x 22.25″ x 13″
  • Interior: multiple-pocket system with lining pockets, breathable mesh pockets and wet-pack pockets; double cross-straps; vertical mesh pocket

A few of other suitcases that my better half has his eyes on and would also be great for traveling:

SAMSONITE CENTRIC 28″ SPINNER

Comes in 5 colors.

It’s currently 25% off right now with code “SAVE25” – Direct link to purchase: HERE.

This deal is MIND blowing, I had to check twice. You can get this  SAMSONITE CENTRIC 3 PIECE SET for under $230!!! The normal price is almost $650. It’s a weekend deal, so don’t wait! Direct link to purchase is HERE. It also comes in 5 different colors.

I also travel with my laptop, it’s a necessity for me. With that being said, I needed a new bag that had a laptop comparment but also room to carry my normal purse necessities.

I picked out the SAMSONITE ZALIA ORGANIZED BAILHANDLE. Which does both of things and also has a SmartSleeve™ which is perfect. SmartSleeve™ is a feature where you can connect your bag to your suitcase. You don’t have to carry it or even watch it fall off when you’re strolling through the airport with your suitcase. Trying to balance your bag is no longer needed or an issue!

A few other great options they have and that I have on my “wish list”:

SAMSONITE KARISSA BIZ BACKPACK

SAMSONITE KARISSA BACKPACK 2 POCKETS

It’s currently 25% off and direct link to purchase is HERE.

I can’t wait for all the new places I get to travel coming up in 2018! It’s a blessing to be able to travel and I’m thankful for Samsonite for keeping my life packed up and organized while I do it.

Instant Bedroom Upgrade – Lighting by LAMPSPLUS

 

Carl and I having been adding final touches to our Master Bedroom and one of the most important ones is….you guessed it, LIGHTING! I was thrilled when Lamps Plus wanted to get collaborate on this project with me. I’ve been looking all over for gorgeous pieces that were affordable. Honestly, I was having a hard time until I went to LampsPlus.com — No joke, I found the lamps I wanted, needed and could afford instantly. I think it took me less than 5 mins. You know how it is, when you find something you love, you just know!

This lamp is called the “Possini Euro Cadence Glass Column Table Lamp” it’s currently on sale for under $120! We put it on my dresser in our Master. It’s great because not only does it fit my style, it had a two pull chain so we can control how much lighting we need. We use this a lot at night when we just want something on in the room that isn’t too bright.

I then needed to find two lamps for our nightstands, Carl is super picky so I was nervous how this was going to go. He didn’t want anything “too girly” — Soon as I showed these to him, he loved them! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! He’s finally understanding that I can put things together and to trust the process, haha. Anyone else in my shoes? Let’s just say — they completed our Master!!

The lamps we used for our nightstands are called Quad Stacked Crystal Table Lamps. They come in a set of two for under $130. You can’t beat finding high quality lighting for these prices.

I was so pleased with how they arrived, packaged properly and the quality of the lamps were amazing.  We will now be looking for lighting to complete our spare bedrooms and offices! Can’t wait to give you guys a complete tour.

Also! Don’t forget to head over to @lampsplus Instagram account to enter to win a $200 gift card to shop! The direct link to their account is here. All rules and regulations can be found in the link in their bio on Instagram. Good Luck!!

Wines of Provence x Girls Brunch

Fall is here, but does that mean I’ve stopped drinking rosé? Of course not! It’s time to #fallintorosé! On Saturday, my girlfriends and I spent the afternoon enjoying the two bottles of wine that Wines of Provence sent me: Chateau Vignelaure 2016 and La Grand Vigne (vin de provence) 2016. These wines both hail from Provence, France, the leader of the rosé wine industry. These bottles of rosé lived up to their reputation and made us feel like we were living the elegant yet still casual lifestyle of those in Provence, France, while we were all gathered around, laughing and sipping on some great wine.

I LOVE a good bottle of wine- and both bottles were extremely delicate yet lively on the taste-buds, a combination that typically is tough to do. My girls also agreed. I can tell they liked it by the empty bottles we ended up with! The Provence grapes are different from other areas: the flavors captured are crisper and more refreshing. The Chateau Vignelaure hails from the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, the second largest region characterized by its windy climate and mountains, which helps give the wine its depth in flavor. The La Grand Vigne 2016 comes from the Coteaux Varois en Provence, at a high altitude, providing the wine with a more complex flavor profile.

I am thinking about grabbing a bottle of each (or three) for my Thanksgiving celebration this year, as rosé pairs well with a multitude of foods. However, if you can’t wait that long to try a bottle with friends and family and live that fabulous Provence lifestyle, have a laid-back night in and try some spicy cuisine, such as Moroccan food, as these bottles pair very nicely with spice, bringing out the flavors of both food and wine perfectly.

Not a fan of rosé? Not to fear. Even though Wines of Provence produces 89% rosé wines, the area also has a multitude of reds and whites, both with a tempting fruitiness for any palate.

Need to get your hands on some of this quality and trendy wine ASAP? Plan on joining Wines of Provence, the #Mastersofrosé, at the Wines of Provence Restaurant Week in New York and San Francisco until October 22. Learn more information and enter their sweepstakes on isitaroseday.com!

Dyson Demo In Tysons Corner.

Dyson has officially opened their location in Tysons Corner, VA and I was lucky enough to partner with them on this campaign for the opening! It’s one of their first locations here in the US and I was so excited to check it out during their VIP Media Event. If you’re local to Northern Virginia and want to get your hands on experience with Dyson — you need to make this a stop on your list next time you head to Tysons Corner. They have Dyson experts throughout the store who greet you with a smile and willingness to teach you!

Below I will be sharing with you Dyson’s experience, their amazing technology and some of my favorites and a few on my wish list.

I have been a Dyson fan (pun intended) since I first used their AM06 10 inch Desk Fan. I remember first seeing it at Carl’s apartment when we first started dating. I was so confused on how it worked. He then gave me a lesson on Dyson and their technology. They use Air Multiplier™ technology which is incredible, if you haven’t watch a video on how the process works, check it out – it’s linked HERE. This makes the fan 75% quieter but not to the point where if you need a fan to sleep it won’t work, it does! Every since I turned on this fan, I moved it from his side of the bed to mine. haha, No joke, he had to get his own. Which now he has the Pure Hot+Cool™ Link on his side! Which I’ll be describing next!

Click HERE to purchase the AM06 10 inch Desk Fan and click HERE for the tower.

Pure Hot+Cool™ Link 

“Dyson purifiers capture 99.97% of particulates as small as 0.3 microns, and keep them trapped. Other purifiers can struggle to trap as much, releasing potentially harmful ultrafine particles back into the room.”

The purifier also uses the Air Multiplier™ technology which helps push the clean air around the room. Did you know that the air in your home can be dirtier than the air outside? Shocking right? Opening windows and having this purifier will help change the quality of the air you’re breathing on a daily basis. One feature that we also love about this product is that it can push cool air or heat! Yep, you can use this year around to meet your seasonal and air needs at the same time.

Also, you don’t even need to get out of bed to operate it. That’s right — There is a Dyson Link App! You can turn it off, on, change the setting straight from your cell phone. It also automatically monitors, reacts and purifies. Then reports straight to the Dyson Link app.

Click HERE for more amazing features.

Click HERE to purchase the Pure Hot+Cool™ Link Fan and click HERE for the tower.

Next up, the cord-free vacuums. Carl and I have three in our house, yes THREE. We literally live for these. We have two dogs and the hair that accumulates around is over whelming! The great thing about the cord-free is it lasts for 30 mins, they have one that lasts for 40 mins and also 20 mins. Just depends on what your needs are.

Below you will find their designs and direct links for more information on their features and if you’d like to purchase!

Dyson cord-free vacuums

Dyson v6 20 mins of runtime – 100 AW Suction Power – .40L Bin Volume

Direct link HERE for more info and to purchase. (Seven choices)

They have so many different vacuums depending on what your need is. I recommend going HERE to see all that Dyson offers and to find the one that is right for you!

Below is one of my favorite newest products by Dyson and it’s on my wish list. The one and only Supersonic Hair Dryer! They have truly redesigned the hairdryer to meet all the things we have always wanted! For example, you know how heavy your blow dryer is right now? Your arm literally feels sore after drying your hair right? I know mine does and then I have one arm muscle bigger than the other! (haha!) The Supersonic is less than 2lbs!

“The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer uses intelligent heat control to maintain Dyson’s optimum temperature, helping to prevent extreme heat damage. Less damaged hair reflects light in a single direction, making the hair appear shiny.” — 100% True! I tried this for myself first hand and my hair was not only shiny it wasn’t frizzy. Who else hates the way our hair is frizzy after blow drying?! I know I do. Thankful Dyson has solved that as well!

“You need a certain amount of heat to style hair, but extreme heat can cause damage. By keeping the temperature under control, our hair dryer can help to protect your hair.”

–Annmarie NicholsonDesign Engineer

3 speed settings:

Fast drying, Regular drying and Gentle drying

4 heat settings

212°F Fast drying and styling

176°F Regular drying

140°F Gentle drying

Constant cold

Click HERE for more features and to purchase! You can pick your color and what type of package you’d like.

Also on my wish list is the dyson 360 eye robot vacuum. This is your best friend if your running out the door and don’t have time to vacuum, or trying to get ready for an event taking place at your house yet you can’t do two things at once? Problem solved.

The Dyson 360 Robot will map out your entire floor plan and then get to work. What happens if the battery dies? It puts itself back on the charger and then remembers where it left off. No, I’m not kidding. It’s a dream come true for all of us busy bodies! I personally want this to follow my dogs around until they have no hair left. (haha!)

This is another amazing product you can remotely control from your phone. You can set the time you’d like it start and finish. Leaving work and forgot to vacuum? No problem, jump on your Dyson app and put this bad boy (or girl!) to work. It has twice the suction power of any robot vacuum. Dyson does it better, it’s a fact. It also has voice control. Click HERE to learn more about its features and to purchase!

I was very honored when Dyson asked me to attend this event and work together on this campaign. I know what you might be thinking, “Well do you own any Dyson products” Yes! I do. Carl and I have 8 total Dyson products, only one of them we got as a trial campaign. Below you can see our own Dyson family!

We are proud to stand by dyson and their designs. I hope that if you’re local to the VA area you check out their new location at Tysons Corner, there will be a store opening in New York and San Fran! For everyone else, direct links have been entered throughout this post for you to shop and to learn more about their technology and why you should invest in a product that you’ll love and won’t let you down.

New Front Load Laundry by LG at Best Buy!

LG Front Load laundry benefits:

Cleaning and Convenience are at the top of my list and LG’s list when it comes to front load. Benefits?! Well, let’s discuss the benefits!!  The cleaning performance within front load is better than top load; front loaders will typically use less water and also consume less electricity, the washer also spins faster to help keep clothes drier to reduce overall drying time. Sounds like a win, win right? I’m always down to save some water and money on my electric bill.

Key Benefits Review:
· Best cleaning performance

· Gentleness on clothes so they last longer

· Most energy efficient to save on utility bills

· Highest spin speaks to dry clothes faster

Above is a closer view of the new SideKick compatible, I love how you can do an additional 2 loads of laundry with this feature. Getting the job done quicker! Who wouldn’t love that?!

If you purchase an LG Front Load Washer and SideKick you will save an additional $150!

Best Buy Blue Shirts are experts in the benefits surrounding LG Front Load laundry, so don’t hesitate to ask them any questions you might have when you’re in store.

If you’re in the market for a new washer and dryer I would highly recommend checking out the latest and greatest from LG. The technology they have been coming out with is mind blowing. Image our grandparents using these back in the day. I bet they would of had extra time on their hands!
