*GIVEAWAY* WIN a SUITSUIT Case

132 Comments 03 June 2013

I’ve never really cared too much about what luggage or backpack I own. In fact, my one backpack is from 2006 and still in perfect shape. My suitcase is on loan, well a Homer Simpson sort of loan as I borrowed it from my Uncle in 2007 and still haven’t returned it.

I’ve seen people post about their fancy new travel luggage purchases for the past three years with not so much as an afterthought. That all changed recently when Brooke Schoenman posted a photo of a SUITSUIT case on her Facebook page.

It was pastel green, shiny and retro and I fell in love.

And I had a feeling my readers would too, which is why I’m giving away one SUITSUIT case to one of you this summer holiday season.

Which SUITSUIT case are you?

SUITSUIT is a Dutch company that launched in 2008. Their aim is to make high quality suitcases that stand out in a crowd or on a baggage carousel at the airport. They also sell suitcase covers. All luggage comes with TSA locks, Turtle Trace and a 10-year warranty. Turtle Traceis a global lost and found service for baggage. They offer three different sizes of cases on two and four wheels, making them easy to roll and the ideal size no matter what sort of trip you go on. The smallest size, the weekender, is 100% cabin proof on all airlines.

I personally would choose their Fabulous Fifties Globe Trotter. I love actual luggage from the 40’s and 50’s, but they didn’t have wheels back then and I’m not one to carry things from anywhere other than on my back when I’m traveling. SUITSUIT created the best of both eras with this collection.

But SUITSUIT is allowing the lucky winner to choose whatever size and style of bag they wish. So whether you’re a Social Media Weekender or a Union Jack Tourister, SUITSUIT has a case for you and your travels.

Their suitcases value you at up to € 169,00, so this would be a pretty epic win.

Win a Jucy road trip with HW’s relaunch

33 Comments 14 August 2012

There’s nothing like having your own set of wheels on a holiday.

It gives you complete freedom to go wherever you want, spend as long as you want at a location, change plans at the last second and even to the reassurance of a bed-absolutely anywhere.

I’ve loved the idea of all this for as long as I can remember. Maybe that’s because I’ve been road tripping since before I can even remember. Based in New Jersey, my parents had a huge love affair with Florida. Every year-sometimes four or five times a year-they would pack up the car, whether it be a station wagon with a popup camper attached or a pimped out van, and take my brother and I on that 20-something-hour trip to St. Augustine, Florida.

They even found friends with kids who loved road tripping as much as them to join in on the ride. We would go in separate cars, but we had walkie talkies to keep in touch, which we all usually just ended up playing games and telling jokes on.

What’s black and white and read all over? Over.

I loved those trips, because with our crew, I was never sat in the back seat asking, “Are we there yet?” My mom could just make fun out of anything and my dad always knew of the most random spots to pull over for a meal, like that crab shack in Georgia with holes in the middle of the tables and trash cans below to dispose of shells.

It didn’t matter where we were going or when we would get there, the fun was in the journey on every one of those road trips.

Some things never change.

This past January, Ric and I took a month off to road trip New Zealand. I’ve traveled a lot of different ways over the years, by train in Europe, bus in SE Asia and I’ve taken a lot of plane rides to all corners of the world, but road tripping holds a very special place in my heart and in the USA-I have to say it’s the only way to travel.

Americana Road Trip Theme

So when I decided to redesign my site with a more fun, lighthearted theme, I decided to trace back my roots of travel and go with a very Americana Road Trip theme.

Introducing the new Heels and Wheels. Designed by Bobbi O’Gilvie

The new theme was designed by the talented Bobbi O’Gilvie, who, I must add, I road tripped Australia’s east coast with. She recently opened up shop with her designs on Ready to Blog. Her work is beautiful and well worth a look. Plus she’s a wonderful person to work with.

But there’s more…

Giveaway

To celebrate Heels and Wheels’ redesign and relaunch-the wonderful people of Jucy have given me three nights with a Jucy Champ Campa in the USA to give away, so the winner and a friend can go on his or her own road trip.

I first noticed Jucy when traveling Australia. Everywhere in the country I’d see that funky green and purple van with a red-head pin up model on the side blowing me kisses. Their campervans include absolutely everything a person would need to road trip-bed, gas cooker, fridge, cookware, even a sink-all at prices backpackers can afford.

I had never seen anything like it in the States. Road tripping in a fancy van or Winnebago always seemed to be reserved for families or retirees with money. Poor twenty-somethings, like me, could only hit the road in a car. But in Australia and New Zealand, because of companies like Jucy, even people on a budget can road trip in comfort. So I was very excited to hear about the companies launch in the USA this past year.

How to enter

There is more than one way to enter this competition and the more ways you enter, the better a chance you have at winning. Using Rafflecopter, see the entry form below, you can enter by:

CONTEST: Win two tickets for On Location Tours in NYC

30 Comments 20 March 2012

CONTEST CLOSED!! Will BE ANNOUNCING THE WINNER SOON.

If New York City were an actor, he’d have one hell of a career. A leading role in everything from When Harry Met Sally to Sex and the City, the Big Apple is constantly used as a backdrop for major moments in films and TV.

People cried when they saw Annie catch Sam at the last moment on the top of the Empire State Building in Sleepless in Seattle. They bought a new wardrobe after seeing Andy’s transformation into fashionista in The Devil Wears Prada. They even came to believe in Santa Clause after seeing Miracle on 34th Street.

Now you have the chance to visit some of the many New York City small spots and large icons that have been used on screen throughout the years.
