I know I write quite often about what to pack to Travel Light, but haven’t yet covered what to put any of it in. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite stylish carry on luggage above, as well as some accessories to coordinate. I always pack a carry on suitcase and a purse, bag, or tote. Sometimes I pack a smaller clutch, or spare bag as well but it depends on the trip and who I’m traveling with. You can shop all of the items above or below:

Presidential Suite at Grand Hyatt SF

Living Grand at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco

Awhile back, for Chinese New Year, we attended an event at the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco. The theme of the event was Living Grand, and it sure did exceed our expectations. I felt very lucky to be able to attend. The Grand Hyatt San Francisco really made everything extra special, from car service to the food and entertainment for the evening. While we didn’t get to stay the night, I got to take a peek at the beautiful Presidential Suite and knew it was something I’d like to share. Aside from the hotel’s already perfect location next to Union Square, the 2200 square foot Presidential suite features sweeping views of San Francisco. I don’t think there is much more I could say about it, except that I’d love to live in this space, ha!

Have you ever had a “Living Grand” moment? If not, how would you imagine yours to be?

Showing our children ways to be creative and adventurous in everyday life ranks pretty high up on our priority list. It’s one of the reasons we travel often, and it’s one of the reasons that when we’re not outside of California or on-the-go, we still encourage our children to explore and learn. We love that we are raising children who think outside of the box, and aren’t afraid to speak up with new or different ideas. When I learned about Crafting Community in Palm Springs it was love at first sight. An experience like this would be the perfect time for us to bond and grow as a family. So without further adieu, I’m happy to announce that we will be attending this year!
