This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Atlantic Luggage for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

We moved to Las Vegas about 10 months ago and I have to say one of my favorite things about living here is that California and the beach are only 4 hours away. We’ve taken several quick weekend trips and I love the memories we’re creating with our mini vacations. Even though I love our trips, packing and getting ready for the trip can sometimes be a bit daunting.

Everyone is allowed only one bag because of space in the car. I was so excited to be able to pack 3-4 days worth of clothes and all the many accessories and shoes in one piece of 20” Atlantic Luggage. My favorite part is that there is no mistaking my luggage anymore because of the awesome pink color. Which brings me to another point, don’t you hate not being able to find your luggage at the Baggage Claim in the airport? Well, this stylish piece is not going to be hard to locate.

As an organizer the inside of the Atlantic Luggage is my favorite part. I love the compartments that make packing so much easier. There’s an interior zipper you can use to separate clothes and shoes and other things or use it to keep your clean clothes from your dirty clothes. The hold-down straps keep clothes in place while traveling. There’s also a removable mesh accessory bag to keep your small items organized and in place.

Here is what’s in my luggage for the long weekend:

3 Capris, 3 Tops, 1 Dress, 2 Sweaters, 5 Shoes, Pajamas, Swim Suit, Cover-Up, Underwear, Beach Towel, Hair Care Supplies, Jewelry, Toiletries

For more great packing tips visit my other post on packing for a trip.

Sometimes we arrive late at the hotel and having to drag in many awkward pieces of luggage can be a pain. Having luggage that is lightweight and reliable is important to me, especially when my hands are full with my purse, treats from the car, kid’s stuff, and so on. Yep, we’re those people checking in late with arms full of stuff and kids trailing behind us.

Would you like to win a piece of your own Atlantic Luggage? To enter all you need to do is leave a comment here telling me why you need a new piece of luggage. Are you going on a trip soon? Are you embarrassed by your current luggage?

Winner will be chosen randomly and luggage will be sent directly from Atlantic Luggage. Giveaway for the piece of luggage ends Sunday, May 25rd at midnight PST.

You can also enter to win a family trip for 4 to either Los Angeles, CA or Washington DC. Head over  to Atlantic Luggage to enter. Trip includes airfare, hotel, $300 activity allowance, and 4-pieces of Atlantic Luggage.

A bag that will fit legally under the seat in front of me can help me avoid those picky airline check in agents who seem more interested in enforcing arbitrary rules in the name of safety and revenue than in offering me a pleasant flight and enjoyable experience on their airline?

Why not placate the airline “police” and simultaneously travel in style with grace with Atlantic luggage?

Karen Jerread May 14, 2014 at 8:48 pm

I had a perfect little bag similar to this that I lent to someone. I forgot about it and just last weekend was cleaningout the garage and found it. Yes, in the dirty garage. It looks so pitiful and dirty. I sure could use a new one and pink is my favorite color.

NaDell May 14, 2014 at 9:51 pm

I need my own new fancy luggage because one day (after I can speak fluent Japanese), I’m going to visit my friend in Japan. She was an exchange student at my high school when I was a senior 14 years ago.

Tiffany Bradfield May 14, 2014 at 10:04 pm

I would love this. I will be driving from Utah to Kansas in July with my 6 year old and 10 month old all by myself . This would be so awesome for when we stop in Denver to stay the night!! I would love to not have to drag in 3 bags plus 2 sleepy kids!!

Dezi A May 14, 2014 at 10:08 pm

I need a new piece cause we just have the old basic black ones that everyone has so when we went to Mexico last week we had to look at tags of lots that weren’t ours before finding ours. :)

Lynne Tilley May 14, 2014 at 10:22 pm

I’m going to Fredericksburg tx soon and this would be perfect for that trip!

Elizabeth F. May 15, 2014 at 3:20 am

I don’t really have a suitcase, and tend to travel in duffel bags. It would be great to “grow up” a bit and have a real suitcase! ;)

Benny Sequeira May 15, 2014 at 4:33 am

Pink – awesome, no more leaning over conveyor belt to spot my luggage, i could see pink from a distance.

Catherine May 15, 2014 at 5:32 am

I would love new luggage because we currently just have a mishmash of different colors/textures/patterns…and they are all dated!

Amy | The Happy Scraps May 15, 2014 at 6:27 am

I’ve never had my own luggage. We still use the luggage my husband used for his mission, over 15 years ago. I would love to have something cute to call my own!! :)

We will be going to Chicago over Thanksgiving to visit my son. I would love a piece of luggage that is lightweight and easy to spot. No more black suitcases for me.

Lindy May 15, 2014 at 6:48 am

I would love a new piece of luggage that looks like it hasn’t been beat up and used forever. We do long weekend trips ever year instead of week long vacations. We feel we get more vacation time this way. :) We are actually using luggage my grandparents gave me when I graduated from high…which is many many years ago.

This is a beautiful piece of luggage and I {heart} the color!

Aimee May 15, 2014 at 6:58 am

I need new luggage as my husband and I share one (we usually go on road trips), sharing with him is impossible!!! I would love to pack my stuff neatly and seperately :)

Jean May 15, 2014 at 7:09 am

I must have the right karma to win because I was just thinking I needed new luggage this morning before I read this. I travel frequently for work and have been using my daughter’s luggage because I don’t have a good small piece. This would be so awesome! I’m crossing my fingers!

Jesseca May 15, 2014 at 7:21 am

I so need a new piece of luggage! I’ve got four trips planned this year and my old suitcase is looking a little sad. It would be fun to have a bright piece like this!

My daughter is going to summer camp for the 1st time this year…I would love for her to have a new suitcase to take w/ her..especially if it’s HOT pink!!

muriel May 15, 2014 at 9:02 am

We need new luggage. Our current luggage is worn & the interior zipper is broke.

Janet Rostad May 15, 2014 at 10:36 am

I would love a new piece of Atlantic luggage! I’ve been looking at luggage, and now that I see all that you fit in there, I know I need this piece! Thanks for sharing!

Kimber May 15, 2014 at 10:50 am

I have used atlantic luggage forever and loved it! I might just need this awesome pink one though… How incredibly cute is that???!!

I’d love to have a new piece of luggage! What I’m currently using is definitely starting to show its age. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Rita May 15, 2014 at 11:56 am

I will be traveling with my family this summer and could definetely use some new luggage. My current luggage is ripped and literally about to fall apart!

Carmen N May 15, 2014 at 12:24 pm

I need new luggage because our favorite piece (approx this size) is from a set I received when I graduated from high school… um, 25+ years ago. The zipper recently broke and it’s in poor shape and probably not worth trying to repair.

Jennifer Reed May 15, 2014 at 3:19 pm

I would love to have new luggage because as my family is growing and time goes by our current luggage is frayed, out of style, and just not big enough to hold everything we need.

Carla May 15, 2014 at 4:14 pm

I would love new luggage because I travel back and forth between the US and Guatemala ALL THE TIME. Guatemala is not a country that is easy on your luggage (or your shoes or your clothes or pretty much anything else…). I have gone through quite a few suitcases and would love to have a good quality piece!

Jaye T Marshall May 15, 2014 at 5:21 pm

I’m going on my 10 year anniversary trip & would love new luggage since I haven’t bought any for at least 15 years.

missy m May 15, 2014 at 7:22 pm

i only have one carry on sized bag, to share with the hubby

Diane K May 15, 2014 at 8:13 pm

I would love to win. This would be a great high school graduation gift for my lovely granddaughter who will be going away to college. Thanks for the opportunity.

Jessica w May 16, 2014 at 6:53 am

We actually only have one carry on suit case, and a random duffle, and having the duffle is so annoying because it gets so heavy and you can’t pull it behind you. I would love it if we had two carry on suit cases so that when we travel we can both have a suitcase.

Holly @ Bits of Everything May 16, 2014 at 8:09 am

That luggage looks amazing! Pretty sure it would put my old set of luggage to shame. I need a cute set of luggage.

This new Grandma needs a new Atlantic Carry-on Luggage piece. She needs to get back and forth to see her Grand-Babies and does not want to waist one precious minute on waiting on the checked Luggage Carrousel or worse the Lost Luggage of Never-Never-Land! So call me a Happy if I win this Atlantic Carry on Suitcase!!! Traveling by plane or car or train, will be a breeze with the help of my new Atlantic Luggage! Besides Pink is my favorite color !

Vicky Cruz May 16, 2014 at 12:22 pm

I need a set of new luggage because I’ve been carrying the same suitcases my parents bought back in the early 1980s! They’re getting a little rickety, and some travel adventures are in my future.

iamalighthouse May 16, 2014 at 3:09 pm

I don’t have any luggage! But will be traveling this year. :)

Michelle J. May 16, 2014 at 3:38 pm

I haven’t gotten new luggage in 10 years!

Jane May 16, 2014 at 9:09 pm

I have a suitcase that has travelled with me for work for several years and it is falling apart. I LOVE pink and this suitcase is calling my name!!

Jenna Osborne May 16, 2014 at 11:33 pm

This would be beautiful to travel with this summer!

I’m going to vectoring family for a month.

Cami May 18, 2014 at 6:56 pm

I really need a new carry-on. At the gate of a very crowded flight a few weeks ago I found out that very old carry-on is slightly too large for the airline’s standards. It was embarrassing and frustrating to say the least. I would love to try Atlantic Luggage. Thanks for the giveaway!

Debra May 19, 2014 at 2:57 pm

How cute is that bag! I love that it would different and easy to find in the overhead bins or if you checked it!

I so love, love, love this luggage. And, I need, need, need it. Our current luggage is so broken-down My husband and I are going away for our 36th anniversary in a few months. We had to cancel our trip last year because of caring for elderly parents. I would love to take this bright and fun piece of luggage on the upcoming trip.

andie May 20, 2014 at 10:53 pm

Would love a piece of luggage that’s fun and bright!

Ashley Tucker May 23, 2014 at 2:43 am

I need new luggage because mine is falling apart.

Tonja Romero May 23, 2014 at 3:35 am

We make overnight trips often to see family (once or twice a month). Bulky luggage is not only a problem in the car, but also carrying in and out. This luggage looks wonderful! I especially like the nice big WHEELS and the zippered side to keep clothes separate. This would be a great addition to keep trips flowing smoothly!

My husband traveled to Saudi Arabia for work several months ago…our luggage returned DUCK TAPED on the corners! Guess he found another use for it. :) It’s slightly embarrassing now to travel with duck taped luggage as a woman. please help!

Sharon J May 23, 2014 at 4:19 am

This would be perfect for quick weekend trips to visit family. We recently replaced our main luggage but all the pieces are fairly large so this would be perfect!

Virginia May 23, 2014 at 4:58 am

I would love this! My luggage I have is when I graduated from High school…in 1981!!! Needless to say, it is OLD!

Grace ML May 23, 2014 at 4:58 am

I will be going on two trips this summer and I would love to have my own luggage! My husband has black and my daughter has blue but this would be perfect for me! It looks big enough to fit everything for a weekend getaway! Love the color too! It will be easy to spot.

Tasha May 23, 2014 at 5:44 am

I would love to give my daughter her first official piece of luggage … she is about to pass the cute duffle bags for everything phase and her clothes are getting too big to add to my suitcase. We haven’t taken a vacation in years only scout camping and hope to change that this summer.

Stephanie W. May 23, 2014 at 7:03 am

The luggage I have was purchased at a second hand store. Pieces are missing from the base, so if I am not holdong the handle, it falls tobits side. So it is time for something new!

Jo Anne Kindler May 23, 2014 at 7:04 am

I would love a piece of colorful Atlantic luggage. I just took a trip and realized that it’s nearly impossible to distinguish my ratty black suitcase from the hundreds of ratty black suitcases being unloaded onto the airline’s carousel. Pink suitcases rock!

Tina volnoff May 23, 2014 at 7:44 am

My husbands new job has him traveling ALOT now. We are planning on me being able to go with him some but I don’t have any luggage. Winning this would be amazing!!

Steph @ Crafting in the Rain May 23, 2014 at 9:31 am

We’re hoping to go to Hawaii this fall, and my suitcase wheel broke on my last flight, so I’d love a new suitcase!

Ashlee May 23, 2014 at 9:54 am

I got my current luggage for a high school graduation gift! It’s been a LONG time, it’s a bit too big for currant airplane standards and I’ve love to get something new and easy for my many trips!

I want a pink bag! It would be so much easier to find!

My 85 year old mother and I just returned from a girls weekend in Carlsbad. First vacation we have ever taken with my two sisters, my mother and I. Mom is using the luggage that she got in COLLEGE! We are talking 1949! It’s PLAID! It doesn’t even have WHEELS! She lugged 2 suitcases and a carry-on whenever my sisters and I weren’t carrying them for her. She’s STRONG! But my sisters and I decided she needs a really cool set of NEW luggage, stylish, with Wheels! We have been searching for the perfect set for our adventurous mother. I am sure Atlantic Luggage has the stylish, sassy luggage that can suit our Mom’s needs!

Mary Beth @ Cupcakes and Crinoline May 27, 2014 at 10:35 am

I love this luggage and the sad truth is that when the whole family and I went away all together a few months ago we ran out of luggage (and what we had was pathetic to say the least) and I actually ended up packing a laundry basket at the last minute. Thankfully it was a driving trip ~ I don’t think they let you check laundry basket luggage for trips via planes. ;)
