Travel In Style with Graphic Image [GIVEAWAY!]

*I was sent this product for review c/o Graphic Image. All thoughts & opinions expressed in this post are my own.* 


True story. As you all know, D and I LOVE to travel. We're off jaunting around Europe at least once a month. Because we travel so much, we've mastered the art of booking trips, finding great travel deals, and taking the path of least resistance when it comes to getting from point A to point B at our destinations. These days, though, we're diligently working on upgrading our travel style. Like a gift from heaven, Graphic Image to the rescue! I received these B E A U T I F U L his & her's monogramed luggage tag and passport cover travel sets c/o Graphic Image a few months ago. I was floored when they finally came in the mail and couldn't wait to give them a try on our Spanish cruise last month. D was almost more stoked than I was...mostly because this is the first company that's ever offered to swag him up as well. The boys behind the blog rarely ever are included in blogger perks, so DANKE, Graphic Image! Ahem, back to my story...I got the bright idea to wait until we were actually leaving for our cruise to take photographs of the new travel gear we'd acquired. I thought it'd be SUPER cute to photograph us pulling our suitcases through the cruise terminal with our sweet new luggage tags flapping in the wind. I was all about creating a travel story to go along with showing off the goods. Oh, how stupid a blogger I am. Allow me to let you in on a little secret...DON'T BE LIKE ME! Don't wait to snap adorable photos for your product reviews. Why? Because you'll get to the cruise terminal and realize someone's stollen your adorable new monogrammed luggage tag right off your suitcase. 

$*#@!!! (forgive my French)

We arrived in Barcelona, toured around the city, taxied to the cruise terminal, and I teared up when I realized my luggage tag hadn't made it along for the ride. Pissed doesn't even being to describe my feelings that morning. I was mad at the individual who'd took it upon themselves to snag my tag (I'm pretty convinced it was stollen at the airport while my bags were in transit because the tag was secured properly and it's high-quality leather...wasn't going anywhere), but I was even more mad at myself for waiting to take photos of it. I know, I know...so silly. But, I loved my new luggage tag. I'd hardly gotten the chance to show it off! D was sweet and consoling, but as I sat there looking at his still intact luggage tag, taunting me, I continued to fume. I get why someone would want it...it's a well-made leather luggage tag. It's gorgeous. But, it had my monogram on it. Maybe that person also had the initials CHC? Fat chance. Either way, I'm luggage tag-less after only half a trip. Major sad face. The silver lining? I've still got my awesome leather passport cover. And I'll fight anyone who tries to steal that one from me!


Moral of the story is...I can't have nice things. KIDDING! Kind of. But really, head on over to Graphic Image and check out their awesome array of leather travel gear (and journals, and planners, and photo albums...so much to choose from!). I'm absolutely in love with the half of the set I have left and I'm eyeing a few gifts for my traveling friends this holiday season! Luggage tags would make great stocking stuffers! Santa, are you listening? 
I kind of need a new one. ;)

Want to travel in style yourself? Graphic image is giving away a leather passport cover & luggage tag set to one of my lucky readers! You choose the color and monogram! Sweet, right?

  34. I'm always afraid someone is going to snag our luggage tag that has "The Pharrs," our anniversary date, and our initials in hearts because they will see it's leather but not that it's monogrammed. So sorry you lost your tag!

    I want this:
