LOOKS Travel Diaries

Roll with Raden

Hello my dear travelers, I am writing from the middle of the Indian Ocean! How has your August started   so far? Is it amazing that we are already at the seventh month of the year, right? This makes me think that I still haven’t done many things that I have proposed for this 2017 and I have only 5 months left.

Many of you do not know, but this year is my last year as a twenty-year-old. Hello dear 30! Yes that’s right this 2017 I’m arriving to the third floor. The truth is it is a bittersweet feeling because I remember as if it was yesterday when I wanted to be 30 and now I’m only 4 months away for it to come true, and the only thing I think about is having a magic wand to be able to stop time.

One of my goals this 2017 before my 30th birthday was to be able to travel to 30 destinations and I only have 4 months left lol… So how is the progress going? Not good..  I actually don’t think I can achieve this goal. For now I have traveled to 10 destinations and the end of August I will add 3 to the list, I have not even completed half …. So I think I’m going to have to settle for what I’ve been able to do.

The positive side of this is that even though there are not 30 destinations, I have been able to explore and enjoy those 10 destinations very well, in some I stayed more than a month. I think that the most important thing for me is not the number, but how well you can know each destination and how many beautiful memories you have been able to take from them.

So if you haven’t noticed travel is my thing hahaha and as a good traveler something in which I always invest in is a good set of suitcases. Since I started the blog more than 3 years ago I bought a set of new cases each year. I have to say that it has been very expensive, but something that is worth 100% investing in especially for those people who travel long distances for long periods like me.

When I am looking to invest in a good set of suitcases the first thing I look at is the design, how light it is, but at the same time how durable they are, how practical they are, how spacious they are and their compartments. When I returned home my ultimate goal was to be able to invest in a smart suitcase before my trip to the Indian Ocean.

That’s how I started my collaboration with the Raden suitcase since I was looking for a practical suitcase that could fulfill my needs while traveling.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m literally one of those people that always runs out with no battery in all my electronics. So if you ever see a Marcy next to the charging stations in an airport that’s probably me.

Now that I have Raden in my life this will no longer be me. The simple fact that I can charge my iPhone through my suitcase seems super ingenious to me. Another of my concerns whenever I travel for long or short periods is the weight. What can I say a girl can never have too many outfits right? The fact that your suitcase can tell you exactly the weight you have is a mega plus. Do you guys know how much money I have paid for overweight baggage’s to the airline?

Literally thanks to Raden my traveling life has never been so easy.

Thanks Raden for sponsoring this post!

  1. OMG it’s such a great idea to travel to 30 destinations until you turn 30! I wish I thought of this idea when I was about to turn 30! What were some of the most exciting destinations you traveled to? I mean, what’s your top 3 recommendations?

    This suitcase looks so chic! OMG I wish I had something like that for my upcoming trip to Europe — it’s like a traveller’s dream come true when it comes to luggage!



  2. Hey Marcy,
    Frankly speaking 30 is the best age ever. The third floor must be amazing!
    Oh girl, your goals are so cool. Traveling to 30 destinations is hard to accomplish but you will feel so cool when you do it.
    By the way, traveling is my thing too. I agree that the best investment for a world traveler is a good suitcase. And I’m in looooove with that Raden suitcase!!

    Ah happy 30th! 10 destinations does sound pretty cool either way! Also loving the Raden suitcase.. defo agree with you I’m always on the lookout for a suitcase that’s light, durable and convenient! Defo will be checking them out , thanks for sharing!



  4. Jacqueline says on August 16, 2017

    I’m so jealous. I’ve been dying for a Raden bag! Actually I’m turning 30 in just a few weeks and have had so many things that I wanted to do before then including traveling but life has gotten in the way. Love their luggage. Seriously so cool and perfect.

  5. This is just every travelers ideal suitcase! Especially if you are traveling far. I am so used to 12-16 hour flights and a lot of times there aren’t any outlets available or you don’t have time to stop and charge. I will definitely look into their suitcases for my next trips!

  7. Wow, 10 destinations in 7 month is such a great achievement! You are so lucky that you can travel and explore new places!
    If you travel a lot it is necessary to have a good suitcase, I agree with you! This Raden suitcase looks so stylish and it is amazing that you can charge your iPhone through the it – such a cool idea!



  8. All of this sounds so interesting. I mean, seriously, travelling the world and experiencing all this beauty – it’s just a dream came true. Don’t be upset, you’ll visit all of these places anyway this year or next one. It doesn’t matter. The thing is to keep doing it and never give up. Sure the good suitcase is the key for every traveller, and oh my I love the Raden ones. They look so classy! Great pics, babe! Happy travelling!

  9. That is amazing!!! I want a Raden so bad now! It literally is what has been missing on all my trips… ha ha. I’m not even kidding. What a cool idea. Also, may I say you look so damn stylish for traveling. I’m usually in my sweat pants and a sloppy tee.

    P.S. Don’t worry about turning 30yrs old – everything gets better in the 3rd decade.

    Marcy to travel to 30 places before turning 30 is such a cool goal! 10 is an incredible achievement, as you said: at least you can explore these places in more detail 🙂 The suitcase is so chic and I am loving your gorgeous airport look.

    Enjoy your travels!!!!

    Girl I love your airport style and seeing all your travel pictures on your Instagram.
    Welcome to the big 30! Ha ha
    I Love the color of your suitcase!
    And I must get myself a Raden suitcase!
    I’m always running out of battery power and I’m always taking too much and end up paying extra at the airport nearly always so this would be perfect for me.

    I love Raden! I have the same bag in silver and I truly adore it! it is so high tech and everyone complimented on my bag during my travels in Europe last May. Thanks for sharing it, beauty!

    Happy Monday! xx. Gina


  13. Michelle says on August 13, 2017

    30 destinations is a bit much anyway. Your travels are pretty epic – take your time – no reason to rush. You have your whole life ahead to travel. 30s are the best – you really come into yourself and get to enjoy life so much more than your 20s. I have to say your Raden bag looks amazing! You had me a lightweight and built in charger! Happy travels!


  14. Omg, is your birthday in November too? I am turning 30 this year too. Times flies so quickly, and I guess I need to think to have babies very soon. Haha. I love watching your insta stories about your exotic places u got to go, looks like a dream job! I have a same luggage but sadly left it in Seattle, now I feel like a loser because I am not turning back to Seattle any soon to see my beautiful bag. You look always amazing!



  15. Sheree says on August 13, 2017

    I have one of the Raden luggage and when they were in LA for pop up shop, I just had to stop by and check out more goods! Love the gold luggage you picked out, it is so versatile and can hold so much, not to mention the self weighing option.

    30 ? That’s amazing girl, you can do it. I wish I could travel to 28 countries before my birthday. It will be some great times. You look amazing and have fun.


  17. Hanoi Evangelista says on August 9, 2017

    Bien por ti amor, que disfruste de esos viajes y de tus ultimos anos como veinteañera.

  25. Thomas Falkenstedt says on August 7, 2017

    First of all, welcome to the third floor. It’s actually the best floor, so enjoy your last days on the second floor, but the wind up here is so much lighter to breathe in, haha. As for the Raden suitcase I totally need a suitcase with a charger and have huge cravings right now! Enjoy your travels hun and don’t worry, you’ll make those 30 destinations sooner or later.
    Thomas xx


  26. Sientemimoda says on August 7, 2017

    Hola me encanta el outfit que llevas cómodo y muy favorecedor y las gafas me encantan y que puedo decir de esa maleta ,quiero una ya , y sobre tu propósito de viajar me encanta comparto esa aficion

  27. Yoleidy Sánchez says on August 5, 2017

    Pero por favor, ya con eao de que se puede cargar el cell, me robò. Me encanta!!

  28. I really love the fact that that suitcase can weigh itself. You’re absolutely right girl, you can never have too many outfits haha! I’m always afraid my suitcases will be overweight so that feature is very handy indeed. Will check out Raden for sure!

    xo, Jo


  29. Candace says on August 2, 2017

    30 trips before 30 is a huge goal to achieve. I wish you were able to achieve that. I can tell just by the looks that Raden is a good luggage brand. It looks so sturdy and durable, something that’s also important for getting your luggage thrown around by staff in the airport. That color is gorgeous too! Enjoy your vacay on the Indian Ocean. I bet it’s so beautiful 🙂



  30. Christine Kong says on August 2, 2017

    I can’t believe you have been traveling so long and it was your goal to go to 30 different places. Even achieving half of that is amazing! I love this Raden suitcase. It is so high tech and I can’t believe it even tells you how much it weighs! I love the color of this luggage too – so sleek! xoxo, Christine


  31. Mariann Yip says on August 2, 2017

    I have always been curious about Raden! I am currently using the luggage from Away but I visited the shop in soho and I was super intrigued by the features and overall look. I’ll have to check it out 🙂
