All Packed Up

 There’s nothing more tedious than having to spend time unpacking when you’re on holiday – especially a mini break, as it eats into valuable sightseeing time and more importantly, means less time to get your tan on.

So when I recently came across these elegant, vintage-style leather travel chests by new brand HeyChesto, I just had to share, I think they’re perfect for a whirlwind weekender or would make a beautiful gift.
I am the absolute worst for random packing, partly because I use a leather holdall that is so dark and cavernous inside I can’t see what I’ve put in there (I went to Brighton for a girls’ weekend recently only to find I’d forgotten a shoe, toothbrush and PJs) and partly because when I get to my destination I can’t be bothered to unpack, meaning it’s a lucky dip every time I venture into the depths of my bag.
I reckon this beauty could revolutionise my travels though. Looky, everything is easy to view! You can fold on real shelves! You can park things in compartments! Basically, people, it’s a wardrobe on wheels.
PLUS it looks super stylish with matching corners, handles and luggage straps and vintage-style brass buckles and lock – a cross between an English boarding school trunk and a fashion stylist’s dream holdall, so it works equally well for teens and travellers as well as luxury seekers.
These beautiful chests retail for £415 but Muddy readers can pre-order one at the launch price of £295. Quote the code launch321 and have it delivered for Christmas. Ho, ho, ho!
