At all the Golden Globe awards ceremonies, celebrities look forward to hitting the red carpet in designer- wear, but there is also the perk of the celebrity swag bag. Each year, they select a myriad of A-List products and fill featured bags for the female and male attendees to take home, whether they have been only nominated or walked away with the Golden Globe.
This year, for the guys, it was the Lug Shuttlebus Weekender Wheelie Bag. Lug is a brand that was developed by a husband and wife team to bring organization to the family “on the go”. It is also a brand that has had a great amount of celebrity endorsement, prior to being selected for the men’s swag bag of 2016.
The Lug Shuttle Bus Weekender Bag is constructed of a hardy polyester fabric and has a multitude of compartments for organization, including a ventilated zip compartment on the back and a soft-lined interior accessory compartment for more fragile items. It also has double handles, a padded shoulder strap, or a retractable handle and wheels to get you where you need to go.
At The Golden Globes this year, they used every organizational pocket to hold some of the most popular grooming and accessory products for men. The products included: Caolin Hot and Cool Pore Cleaner Duo; L’Oreal Men’s Expert Moisturizer; Lug Bento 3-Piece Toiletry Set; Rituals Skincare Samurai Magic Shave and Fig Fragrance Sticks; Rusk Hair Products; a Corkcicle Brushed Copper Tumbler; a Dunheger Travel Scale; Incipio F80 Earbuds; a Misfit Wearable Flash Link; and a Wolf Manufacturing Travel Neck Pillow, among others. The celebrity men not only get to try some of the hottest products out there, but also end up with one of the most sought-after, every day luggage pieces.
Choosing a bag for work is an important decision. There are a lot of factors to consider; how long is your commute? Will you be walking far? However, the Backpack has to be the main contender for this particular occasion. It is a bag favoured by commuters everywhere. However, backpacks don’t just have to be functional and practical; they can be packed with style.
The Michael Kors Marley Drawstring Backpack; a fashionable and functional bag that would be perfect for those long commutes and stuffy underground journeys. With two outer and four inner pockets, there’s room to spare, and, along with the adjustable shoulder straps, this bag is the ultimate work wear accessory, remaining functional and practical.
This is an event where style is of great importance and practicality…well, it will just have to wait. A bag that is desperately cool and on-trend this season is the Bucket Bag. A lot of high-end brands are catching on, but the ultimate version for me is the Sophie Hulme Mini Bucket Bag in brown suede.
This stunning accessory by Sophie Hulme is a work of art. However, this bag is not just aesthetically pleasing; it includes an inside pouch and an adjustable shoulder strap for added comfort. Wear with statement heels for an eye-catching look on race-day.
Bags for evening events need to small and compact, but still glam. They need to have that touch of sparkle but be easy to hold in the hand. We all know that for this occasion, it’s the Clutch. In particular, the McQ by Alexander McQueen Bullet Kicks Clutch.
The Bullet Kicks Clutch is made entirely of cork, and is a grunge-glam alternative to the average clutch. With a gritty, silver texture and bullet bar wristlet, this bag screams attitude, staying true to the brands outlandish, rock ‘n’ roll theme. It also features an inside zip pocket for extra storage so, fear not, this edgy clutch has ticked all the boxes.
A Long Weekend away
A weekend bag is something that everyone should own. They exude sophistication, tradition and can also usually fit in aeroplane overhead storage. But seriously, they’re important. A perfect weekend bag is the Barbour Waxed Holdall.
This Barbour Holdall is a beautiful accessory with classic leather handles and branding. The bag is clearly big enough to fit in everything you could possibly need for a long weekend, but another fantastic feature is the classic Barbour waxed cotton outer. You really will feel right at home at a country spa-hotel with this traditional weekend bag by Barbour.
Interviews are obviously important, and outfits are sometimes equally as important as what comes out of our mouths. Your choice of handbag should be something sophisticated and stylishly simple. A shopper or tote like the Armani Jeans Brogue Bugatti Shopper is the perfect option.
The Brogue Bugatti Shopper is a smart and elegant way to carry your daily essentials, as well as any formal documents you might need for an interview. With two top handles and patent leather panelling, this bag exudes class and style. Having room to spare inside, the Brogue Bugatti Shopper is the perfect bag to take to an interview; simple and chic with a no-fuss factor.
A Day Shopping
When we go shopping, whether it’s with a particular item in mind or just for a stroll around the shops, we need to be comfortable. After all, who wants to be walking around a bustling city centre with an uncomfortable, heavy bag? The perfect bag for a day Shopping is the classic Tote. Vivienne Westwood have long been known for their beautifully designed and sometimes eccentric bags, and the Frilly Snake Tote is a shining example of that
With an entrancing snake design and frill trim, this Westwood accessory is a thing of beauty. With the brands iconic orb gracing the centre of the bag, this is an ideal companion for a long day of shopping. The bag includes a removable and adjustable shoulder bag that will provide extra comfort if needed, and extra inside compartments ensure a sound amount of storage space. As far as bags go, you can’t go wrong with a Vivienne Westwood number.
Going to the beach is fun yet you end up lugging around a lot of stuff; towels, sunscreen, magazines, water bottles,etc. If you have kids you can basically triple that amount by adding in toys, hats, and extra clothes. Therefore beach bags are a must, but they come in all different shapes and styles from elegant to laid back or even extra funky. Find the right one for you and it will make going to the beach a breeze (or should we say it will look easy!).
For the classy golden girl we love Lilly Pultizer’s Resort Tote. It features a metallic gold umbrella print and has a water-resistant finish. It also has an interior zippered section for your wallet and cellphone plus a clip for your keys, so it’s practical and stylish.
Keep everything laid back with Sun ‘N’ Sand’s Hatteras tote which is made from hand woven natural straw. The bag is fully lined with pockets for your valuables and has a magnetic snap closure. It’s the perfect accessory for a day lounging in the sun sipping a Mai Tai.
Life is Good‘s Sling Beach Bag Stripes may not be large enough to fit your towel (unless you have a really small towel) but it’s so cute you might be willing to look passed that and carry your towel on the side. This cute backpack style beach bag has chunky nautical and Life is Good printed right across the front.
Think about the number of ways in which life has changes. The first thing that you’ll be probably be reminded of is how the advent of technology and the internet have changed the way you study, read a book and even shop. Online shopping, for one, is a rage since the day that it was conceived. However, do you purchase everything online?
Probably not! There are still a few things that you need to check before you buy. For example, oversized people rarely buy clothes online until they are extremely sure of their size. Similarly, many people do not purchase shoes online.
Though everything is easily available online, those who belong to a certain age group are still in the habit of going to the mall or the market and getting things. For the aged, carrying things is not an easy task and they need help for it. They however insist on carrying their own load all by themselves. To make life a little simple for them, how about gifting them a smart cart? Using this lug, they can shop around easily without having to worry about carrying kilos of things around. They can simply keep things in the Portable Cart and drag it around.
Now, if you are thinking that smart carts are just for the aged or the old, think again. How many times does it happen that when you are out shopping, you drop the idea of buying something just because it will take you an extra bag to carry the stuff? In case, you want to shop free of worry, a smart cart is the thing for you. With it, you can shop to your heart’s content. And that too without feeling exhausted because of the amount of bags that you otherwise carry in your hand.
There is another wonderful way in shopping carts help you complete your shopping. This is the way in which they keep the things that you have shopped for packed and safe. In case you are in no mood to arrange these things in the shelves or drawers, you can for the time being, keep them lying in the lug.
This way you can keep your rooms or home free of clutter, for, you do not need to take these things out of the haul as soon as you come back home from shopping. Is there any other advantage of using a shopping cart? Yes, there is. And you will definitely be able to understand that benefit in case you are a parent of little kids. It is almost impossible to shop with your cute devils around. They are attention demanding. But more than that, they are very demanding.
If you take them to nearby mall or the local market, they will scream for anything that they like or want. They might also ask you to give them your credit card or walk away with it to the shopkeeper. Kids pick up things very quickly. So, how do you manage? One of the ways is to make them stay home. However, that is not possible every time. You therefore ought to take them along shopping, you must have a quick cart that you can keep your stuff, or the baby in. Simple isn’t it? Now, you can concentrate on the shopping while your toddler quietly sleeps inside the shopping cart.
There are innumerable other ways in which a lug can be of help. Read as much as you can about the various types of hauls available in the market to keep updated about them as well as their uses.
