Who loves to travel, but hates to pack? Do you usually try to pack everything you’ll need for a week in a carry-on suit case? Or do you not even try, and just check a bag?
I’m almost always one who does not check a bag but rolls everything I need for the week in a carry-on suitcase.
But soon I’m headed to Kansas City for Scentsy’s 2017 annual convention, aka Scentsy Family Reunion. There will be lots of giveaways, far more than I will be able to put into my carry-on suitcase. Therefore I had to buy a big suitcase last night. It seems huge, although I suppose anything larger than a carry-on is huge to me.
Last week I was returning from a week in San Diego and had a layover in Minneapolis. We witnessed two boys, I am going to guess who were about 7 or 8 years old, racing each other on their suitcases. I’m still giggling about it.
Picture this, they were both straddled on top of their luggage, as if they were riding a circus pony but zooming through the airport to see which one would get to the next “called” location first. I fear if I tried to do that the wheels would buckle as would the reinforced sides of my suit case. It was still funny to watch. I love childlike wonder.
I’m sure we all have some interesting airport stories. If you’re one who likes to travel, or perhaps you don’t like to, but you’re required to, I’d like to recommend one of Scentsy’s newest electric candle warmers, Bon Voyage. It’s an adorable retro suitcase that holds wickless candles.
This is an element candle warmer, meaning there is no light bulb to melt the wax. Instead it uses a heating element to warm the wax. Be sure to include some scented wickless candle bars to warm in the top of the suitcase. For extra savings check out our Savings Bundles.

Hi Laurie, I am a planing freak and couldn\’t go on a trip without checking and packing everything nice and tidy in my suitcase. I would like to write about one of my airport stories.
When I was flying to Spain a couple of years ago I was waiting at the belt to get my bag after landing. Most people know how annoying it can be to wait for your luggage for a long time and the fear of lost bags. I was waiting and waiting, till almost everybody left. I went around checking signs and making sure the TV monitor had the right flight number. It was only me and another passenger and we started talking and making jokes about lost bags. After a couple minutes he received his bag and I was still waiting. I got really nervous and almost freaked out. It felt like I was the last person on the planed. After 2 minutes I left to find somebody in charge. The guy didn\’t speak any English, but somehow we communicated. I pointed to the luggage belts and after I told him where I came from (Australia) he took me to a different belt for international luggage. The bag must have been searched completely, because after opening all my stuff was messed up and untidy. In the end I was lucky to find my bag, but the feeling was shocking and I hope it never happens again.
