DESIGNLOVEFEST LUGGAGE AT TARGET!

luggage launch | designlovefest

hi guys!! our second has launched just in time for the holidays. this time we focused on adding a lot more smaller items that would make great gifts (and so many adorable pieces under $20!)! a few of the items are selling out quickly but you can always shop online or check to see if your stores are carrying them!

this year we shot the luggage on a trip to PERU…

shop some of my favorites from the collection //

 

: i love the size of this bag, it’s so easy to travel with, feels secure and fits all your important things while you’re on the road. i like to pack this in my checked luggage and then use it once i’m at my destination.

: these are one of the top sellers so if you don’t see it available online, check your local store stock. they’ll be sold out soon. i wasn’t really a believer in packing cubes until i started designing luggage and now i realize just how handy they are.

: this is for so much more than cosmetics and i love to keep my receipts, travel documents, passport, etc in here and throw it into my carry on. it’s a great way to keep track of all of your small items that can fall to the bottom in a larger bag. make a really cute stocking stuff for christmas too!

: i’m still in shock that this handy little bag is only $8. they are so useful for everything from groceries, to bringing home souvenirs from your trip that can’t fit in your bag, etc. keep one in your car for last minute errands.

: it’s hard to tell the shade of green in the photos but it’s a really soft sage green that i love. it took many rounds of reviews to get the color perfect and i’m so glad we did. also, the rose gold handle is a favorite feature too!

: this little hip pack is a travel essential!  you can keep your money and passport close to your body while you travel and be hands free at the same time. a great christmas gift for the world traveler in your life!

in our last luggage line we offered a pink suitcase and this year we wanted a refresh the colors and also offer TWO roller colors. our best selling items are the and (perfect for long weekend trips!)

is actually one of my favorite additions in this collection and  it’s so easy to throw on when you want your arms free shopping at a market (or holding a cute baby lamb? haha)

another favorite is definitely the shopping tote. i love bringing bags like this

went through many many rounds of back and forth! i wanted something that was stylish and functional. this bag fits a whole lot and even has space on the sides for more. it was taken on a long hike to rainbow mountain, the salt flats and machu picchu!

CALIFORNIA OLIVE RANCH HARVEST TOUR!

we just took a quick trip to sacramento (i’ve never been, love how laid back it is there!) to visit during their annual harvest. i’m sure you’ve noticed their signature green oil bottle in many of our recipes posts, it’s been the only olive oil we use at our studio for years so we were excited when they asked us to join the trip.  i’ve been in total learning mode when it comes to food and i loved seeing the harvest in action.  their team really cares about the quality of their extra virgin olive oil and giving it to the consumer at an affordable price, and i loved spending time learning about their process and getting to know their small team.

we learned how to properly taste olive oil and got to taste many different varietals which was a really cool and new experience to me. we even did a blind tasting with a competitor oil currently on the market and saw an extreme difference between the two. it was actually pretty shocking when tasted side by side! olive oil can be the foundation of so many dishes, and the quality and taste is super important. i also go through so much oil with how much i cook so keeping it affordable is key.

we got to visit one of their fields during harvest and were able to ride on the harvester and watch the olives being picked off the trees and then got to see the olive oil being made from start to finish at the mill. i definitely felt more connected to the experience since i’ve been cooking so much and it feels good to dive deeper into the process! they also just launched their Destination Series which is extra virgin olive oil sourced from all over the world and brought back to california to their mill where they curate blends of the international growers oil mixed with the California oil. we got to try some of the blends and they were delicious!

i also love that it’s a california-based olive oil brand. when i travel to europe i’ve brought olive oil back at times because i really felt a big difference in the taste and quality and is bringing that to the states. they really don’t cut any corners when it comes to their product which is awesome.
