The Best Suitcase, and how I Lost Mine

I used to have a bit of an obsession with Zero Halliburton luggage. Look familiar? That's because bad guys in all the movies use the briefcases to hold their money and bombs. Over the years I kept buying these things, and usually traveled with a huge 26" suitcase as well as a matching computer case.

I still really like my Zero Halliburton suitcases, but they're somewhat unweildy. Two day trips don't require a hectare of packing real estate.

Plus, there was the allure of the carry-on only passenger. I never really understood how it worked before. How do people carry everything in such small suitcases? Is it really that much more convenient? What's so bad about checking bags? I was curious.

Hello there!

My top of the list must have of essential items ever curly girl needs is... (drum roll please...)

A Micro Fiber Towel!

I currently own 3 of the Turbie Twist towels. They are awesome! After my shower, and after I have put products into my still dripping wet hair (we'll talk about that later in another blog), I just wrap my hair up in the Turbie Twist. It is very simple and easy. I leave it on for about 10 minutes while I put on lotion and finish getting ready. By that time it has soaked up the excess water in my hair and is no longer dripping. I am not a fan of blow drying so I just let it go wild after that point. But, if you prefer to blow dry, you can do it after this and your blow dry time will be cut down!
