Upgrade Your Travel Style


It’s 4:30 in the morning the day of my trip to Africa. My bag is packed, but not zippered. I double check my apartment for any forgotten items. Everything looks good so I go to zipper my suitcase.

It won’t close….

So I sit on it. I force the zipper to close with ALL my strength + POP there goes the zipper.

Lucky for me I was stopping by my parent’s house before the airport to drop off Benji and knew that they had to have an extra suitcase laying around. Unlucky for my Mother and everyone else who was sleeping I barged into their house screaming, “somebody get me a suitcase!”

Well…everyone was fast ASLEEP, but my Mother somehow managed to find a suitcase in her sleepy state. The WORST suitcase in the world. It was a very ugly shade of brown and refused to stand on its own. I spent the entire trip picking it up, leaning it up against everything and apologizing for my suitcase.


Needless to say, when I got home I was ready to upgrade my travel style!


Lucky for me, Fab found me and helped me out with a #FabUpgrade.

Fab is a great source for well-designed products you won’t find anywhere else, including this suitcase from Hideo Wakamatsu. Not only does this suitcase stand without falling, the lightweight polycarbonate body makes it a dream to roll around…MAJOR #FabUpgrade.


I threw in a fun monogrammed luggage tag for a little extra flare!

I love personalized accessories!

(even though I don’t always follow the ‘monogram’ rules)

K A T just looks so much better than K M E…
