There’s nothing better than the feeling of coming home for Christmas. Even though I should probs have grown up by now and started hosting my own Christmasses or something more adult, I’m still holding on to family traditions and basically reverting back to childhood as soon as it’s the holidays. But oh well, that’s what Christmas is all about right?! I love that feeling of packing up, leaving the city behind (although I always miss it after a day or two) and coming back to home to spend a few days in familiarity surrounded by family, good food and drink and plenty of festivity!
I’m lucky enough that my family only live a short train ride away from London so it’s pretty easy for me to get back. The only problem can be lugging all my stuff home on public transport…for some reason I always end up bringing a lot home for the week – clothes and shoe options, usually involving as many sequins as possible and some outfits for blog photos to rope my brother into taking for me, running or yoga kit to try and make myself feel better about feasting on Christmas dinner leftovers all week and of course all my Christmas presents! Having to carry all that stuff obviously requires a pretty good suitcase and I was lucky enough this year that American Tourister obviously understood the problem for people like me heading home for Christmas and gifted me this shiny new red suitcase to basically act as my very own Santa’s sleigh to deliver all the presents home to my family!
American Tourister Skytracer Suitcase
I always find it difficult to find a good suitcase. More often than not I just put up with whatever I have and have never bought a really good one, so I was pretty happy to be able to try out the new Skytracer suitcase from American Tourister in this festive red colour – they even personalised it for me to make it more christmassy! It’s actually an awesome case, lightweight but super sturdy and it’s really easy to wheel and manoeuvre – no more heaving my dodgy-wheeled case along the floor, thank god! It’s spacious and seems to be able to carry a lot of weight while still feeling very light to wheel, which is exactly what I need! And there are plenty of internal compartments for toiletries, etc. For a chronic over-packer like me it’s great as you can fit so much in! It will be perfect for travelling – it’s the perfect size and it should be nice and easy to spot in luggage collection too (hopefully will stop me from panicking I can’t remember what my case looks like every time!) I’m starting to plan the trips I want to take in the new year so this has inspired me even more….I’m going to start making a list of places I want to visit and start filling up the ‘travel’ section of my blog!
