Hi, My name is Danielle and I’m an over-packer.

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to traveling one of the worst parts of it all is the packing. What do you bring?  How many pants?  3 dresses or 2?  10 days equals how many pairs of shoes? Before you know it, you’ve packed half your closet into 3 bags and you’re only going away for a long weekend.  Fortunately my good friend Khalif Hayes aka Mr. CarryOn dragged me into his OverPackers Anonymous class and gave me a crash course in the ways of packing cubes!

Now when you’re rocking with #teamcarryon packing cubes are your bestfriend, however, most packing cubes are a bit dry in the stylish department. When I told my friends at Hudson+Bleecker that I was a recovering overpacker and wanted to test my new skills on my next vacation, they had the perfect solution!  Their Labyrinth Onyx packing cube is perfect for someone who wants to pack light, but likes to add a little bit of flair to their travel luggage like I do. They do the job of normal packing cubes, but they are way more jazzy and snazzy, score!

I decided to take my new cube out for a spin on a quick weekend trip.  My first reaction was to pack every thing in sight for the four day getaway, but instead I decided to take Khalif’s advice and pack just what I needed into the cube, nothing more.  A bathing suit, a tank top, shorts, a cute wrap, sunglasses, GoPro, one pair of sandals, a few extras and even my Hudson+Bleecker Labyrinth Gold Mini Dopp Kit for all my toiletries.

Almost Closed

When I zipped it closed I felt like a champion! Everything I needed fit easily inside the packing cube and if I wanted to, I could’ve just grabbed the stylish carrying handle and headed straight to the airport. However, I didn’t want to get any funky airport grime on my new BFF for life, so I slipped the Labyrinth Onyx cube into another one of my favorite travel pieces to complete my jetset fly.

Final Fly

Ladies and gents, I have been changed! I am now a believer in the ways of packing cubes, especially since I can get fly ones like the Labyrinth Onyx packing cube! I’m so in love with it that I’ve convinced Hudson+Bleecker to give this awesome packing cube away to one (1) lucky reader!
