How to Pack Light for a Vacation

With the new luggage weight restrictions and high fees, its important to pack light and right.  In the past I would just throw a bunch of clothes into my cheap luggage and not care too much.  Now you have to care. You have to make sure that your luggage is light and you bring only the stuff you need.  Take these tips from Fashion blogger Nelia.

[from Style Blog] I’m not going to claim to be an expert on packing or travel….BUT, I do travel a heck of a lot, and always…always without checking my baggage. In the past, I’ve had a few a lot of problems with lost bags, and ruined vacation outfits…which is obviously very stressful, and costly. I’ve finally had enough, and whether it’s a two-week European vacay*, or a weekend getaway, carry-on only is the only way I’ll travel. If you want to know how to travel light, without the hassles (and extra fees) that come with checking your bag, read on for my tips!

Heys Style

1. Good Luggage is Key

There’s a reason why this is tip #1. Good luggage can make a huge difference! For the past 8 (or so) years, I’ve traveled with my trusty green Heys carry-on everywhere. And when I say everywhere, I mean everywhere! Places it’s been: Kyrgyzstan (2 times), Kazakhstan (3 times), Paris (3 times), London (2 times), Italy (3 times), Spain (1 time), Moscow (1 time), New York (4 times), Houston (bajillion times), Cuba (2 times), Mexico (1 time), Mont Tremblant (1 time), Quebec and Montreal (2 times), Las Vegas (2 times), LA (1 time)…shall I keep going? My luggage has never let me down, through the cobbles of Red Square, and through the millions of stairs in Paris subway tunnels – it was always, always reliably sturdy and light.

Good luggage will expand when you need it to, will keep your clothes safe and neat, is easy to wheel around, is light, easy to maneuver and to spot. It doesn’t even have to be expensive. Granted, I am pretty biased towards Heys luggage (which is hella solid, affordable, and proudly Canadian!). After 8 years of using my cute green suitcase, I finally had to retire it – simply out of vanity (as it’s still in great condition). I wanted a prettier, newer set, and this Journey Spinner** will hopefully do the job just as well, while looking sleek and stylish.

Lucky for you, Heys is actually giving away a trip worth $5000!!! So if you want to take that new luggage out for a spin, make sure to enter here: http://www.facebook.com/HeysIntl?sk=app_250354528351779 more…

Win a weekend at a Hampton Hotel for 100 of your friends

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hampton Hotels. All opinions are 100% mine.

We will be announcing our Stupid Tourist Story Contest winners soon.  There is some internal disagreements of which story is the best.  If you did not get a chance to enter, don’t worry.  Hampton Hotels has just announced the Hampton Chain of Friends Sweepstakes.

Imagine this… Win one weekend for you and 100 of your friend at a Hampton Hotel. That’s practically the entire hotel for you!  The sweepstake is open to residents of the 50 US, DC, Canada (excluding Quebec), UK and Mexico.  You don’t have to be Hilton Honors members or have previously stayed at a Hampton. Plus, there is no purchase necessary.  Not enough? Well, Hampton Hotels will throw in $5,000 to cover the taxes for the weekend.

My hotel of choice would be the Niagara Falls Hampton Inn.   We’d spend the day at the Niagara Falls Waterpark, and all of the Falls Avenue attractions such as Adventure City, the Hershey Chocolate shop, and Clifton Hill. At night we’d watch the Niagara Falls fireworks and spend the rest of the night at the Casino, which is conveniently located directly across the street from the hotel. If I win I’d definitely invite all my friends and a few readers who comment on this post (hint, hint).  But if you win, please put me on your guest list?

Contest Ends:  9/4/2010
