A product review and a giveaway- Travel neccessities!

Recently, I was gifted another wheeled weekender bag (I know, lucky me) from the generous people at Two Lumps of Sugar. Two Lumps of Sugar offers a wide range of fun and unique products for the home, such as kitchen items, totes and bags, kids' products, organizational boxes, travel accessories, clean-up products and more! Out of the 17 fun designs available for wheeled weekender bag, I picked the Leopard Wheeled Weekender because I thought it was very chic! Animal prints are always in style, right? Here is what my bag looks like:

My new stylish and roomy leopard print weekender bag.

There are two outside zippered pockets, one on each side of the bag. The zippered pockets are one of my favorite features because I love bags with many compartments.

The inside zippered pocket.

There is also three other pockets inside. These are perfect for organizing important personal items like cel phone, passport, purse or any small items.

And it comes with a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap.

This is what the weekender bag looks like with the adjustable shoulder strap attached.

A travel tag is included with the weekender bag as well.

 The retractable handle (not adjusted to its full length yet).

The retractable handle stores a hidden zipper closure when not in use.

 The built-in wheels.

What I love most about this product is its attention to details. Made with a thick fabric material, it features various useful compartments, a hidden zipper closure (for the retractable handle) and a luggage tag. While these details may seem minute but these are definitely pluses considering many bags found in the same category often overlooked these small but useful features. 

*Based on my honest and unbiased opinion.
