Home for the Holidays + $350 Beauty Blowout Giveaway (Ended)

8:30 AM

I love spending the holidays with my family - I don't get to see them often with work and life getting in the way, but when I do, I really make the most of it. It is crazy when I pack to go home. Not only are winter clothes bigger and bulkier, I have presents to bring with me as well. Luckily, Scout Bags Weekender Travel Bag  fits everything perfectly! Clothes, pajamas, toiletries and even a few gifts can be tucked away seamlessly in the Weekender bag.

Scout Bags Weekender Bag and Gifts


I ordered the Ivy print because it's universal - I can use it all year round and the classic black-and-white colors match almost anything in my closet, like my Style & Co Petite Fleece Shawl Cardigan. I did not intend on matching my Weekender Travel Bag, but I'm loving how it turned out! The fleece collar feels amazing and the cardigan surprisingly keeps me warm. I added a belt to it because the closed shawl looks more polished and put-together than when it is open. I finished the outfit with black jeans and ankle booties and I'm off to catch the train back to Central Jersey!




The outlook this coming weekend is pretty iffy - there's a small chance of rain and will be mostly cloudy. This is one of the rare occasions when I remember to check the weather. I'm constantly stuck in the rain without an umbrella or the right shoes. Thankfully, the Weekender Travel Bag is waterproof, so I don't have to worry about my clothes and/or presents getting soaked. 

Though the Weekender is my go-to for a getaway, Scout Bags have other amazing products as well - including smaller totes, reusable gift bags and more that make a great Holiday gift. AND, exclusively for my readers, you get everything at a 20% discount with my code 'SCOUT-MC'. You can finish your holiday shopping and save some money too!
