Shortly after that first trip, I made the upgrade to the rolling suitcases with 360 degree spinning wheels. That in itself made a huge difference, but unless a suitcase also magically lifts itself up stairs or up into train luggage racks, it doesn't matter how fancy your wheels are or how many directions they turn.
When you arrive, you simply open it up and hang it in the closet, and the various compartments act like drawers, allowing you to find everything easily without ever having to unpack at your destination. (I'm sure I'd be sad to know how many hours of my life were spent digging through a suitcase and then essentially refolding every item in it afterwards!) It is carry-on size, but it easily fits two weeks of clothes and you can even do a little shopping at your destination (as I am wont to do) and still make it home no problem- the inner compartment comes out and acts as a shoulder bag, leaving the shell free to fill with whatever you like.

Mom and I have recently discovered and fallen in love with Fushi products- all organic, vegetarian and high-quality. I particularly love the hair products and I can't wait to try this skincare kit. It comes in a bag that meets the new TSA guidelines and includes everything to moisturize, hydrate, and refresh on-the-go. (us) ~ (uk) ~ (ca) ~ (fr) ~ (de)
