Investing in good quality luggage is really something everyone should do, wether you are a seasoned traveller or just take the occasional getaway. It has taken me while to create the perfect travel bag/ luggage collection. I have to admit I used to just buy whatever was cute and cheap, thinking it will do the trick. Cut to me dragging my heavy suitcase across the airport in Amsterdam because the terrible cheap handle totally broke off. Not fun.

Away, a direct to consumer luggage brand that is gaining a loyal following has created what might be the perfect carry on. They say, “first-class luggage at a coach price.” and they are not kidding. The sleek hardshell case comes in 7 gorgeous colors and the prices are very reasonable. They start at $225 for the carry on, a great price for the high end design and quality.


I took my Away Carry On for its first trip last week, and I was so surprised how much I could fit inside it. I fitted enough for a long weekend, plus some extra items to shoot, my camera and my (large) make up bag. It comes with a very nifty and bag for packing or laundry.

Besides fancy 360° spinner wheels and water resistant body, arguably the best feature of the suitcase is the fact that its a smart case, which means it comes with a interior battery that has two USB parts that can charge your phone! Basically the best thing ever for any trip, no more searching every corner of the airport for a wall outlet to pass the time on Instagram or check your email.
