Packing for Europe (Part II): How I pack my carry-on


Today, I am showing you guys how I pack my carry on. Everything should be self-explanatory. I am a huge fan of packing cubes. They make packing and unpacking so much quicker (especially if you will be moving from one city to the next in a short period of time). This set from the Sharper Image comes with 3 cubes (large, medium and small). I use the large size for all my clothes, the medium one for shoes and the small one for my make up and everything else. Everything fit neatly inside my carry on. I am not sure if you can tell but there's still quite a bit of room left. Thank you for all of the suggestions on my last post, I decided to pack my beloved denim jacket as well as a couple sweaters. The last thing I want to do is walking around the city all day freezing.

I did a ton of research and ended up purchasing the Bric's 21" Pininfarina carry-on. I am seriously in love with it. It's super lightweight, the capacity is much greater than it looks and the exterior design is beautiful. I haven't used it yet so I can't comment on the quality.

Can we take a moment to acknowledge how adorable is this carry on? I had a hard time finding an "age-appropriate" luggage for my daughter. She wanted something fun but not kiddie-looking. We saw this one online and knew right away it was the one. Everything is so perfect from the dollhouse theme to the polka dot lining.

I never check in luggage if I can help it! I hate having to wait for luggage, hoping that it doesn't get lost. Hope your trip is awesome!

Hi Sydney! How is the quality of the Bric's carry-on luggage? Would you recommend it?

@Anonymous The quality is pretty decent. I can't 100% vouch for the quality as I didn't check in my luggage. Rolling it around the airports was an absolute breeze. The luggage feels sturdy and seems to hold up well. I personally like it and think it's worth considering.
