Living Out Of A Suitcase Is Actually Awesome

A sponsored hip + urban girl post.

I will be living out of my suitcase for the next 2.5 months. 

Which means I have been constantly checking in and out of a different hotel in a new city every 1-2 days since my Route 66 Road Trip across the USA started two weeks ago. I barely have time to unpack, so I pretty much just leave everything in my suitcase and just pull out what I need for the day.

When my cheap hard side case finally gave out after only four years, I realized that you really do get what you pay for when it comes to luggage. The set that I had before was probably designed for someone who goes to Mexico once a year and not the 12 weeks of travelling I do annually. When my old suitcase arrived with the luggage handle completely ripped off from the plastic shell, I knew it was the end and a total waste of something that was not built to last.

So when I was shopping around for a new luggage set, I spied the Samsonite Cubelite collection online and instantly fell in love with its sleek lightweight design. I actually went ahead and reached out to Samsonite myself and they wonderfully agreed to let me test out the Cubelite collection for my road trip.

Now, I am a bit of a luggage geek. I love all the individual zippered compartments that are built-in on the Samsonite Cubelite. Which means underwear can hideaway in its own pocket and all my toiletries can be zipped away in another. My 25” spinner weighs a mere 6.8 lbs (more room for shoes!), spins in every which direction and includes a built-in three digit TSA lock.


The champagne colour looks slick and its way easier to spot when it’s rolling around on the luggage carousel at the airport. The 25” spinner retails for around $600 and there is a larger 28” option or a 20” carry-on size. It is a little pricier than your run of the mill $100 hard side case, but it’s definitely an investment that I’m looking forward to having around for longer than just four years.

I love to travel and I hate to pack. Having an amazing suitcase like the Samsonite Cubelite makes it way less stressful and I can focus on all the fun travelling ahead!
