And let’s be honest — whether you’re someone who likes to pack a week in advance or an hour before your flight, it can be a pain. What I’ve found however, is that a good suitcase or travel backpack can make all the difference when it comes to actually wanting to pack. While there are sites popping up where you can shop chic, super stylish luggage, it’s not always the most affordable option. And it can seem like finding a site that carries a range of affordable luggage is an impossible task. That’s where eBags comes in. eBags is the No. 1 online retailer for travel bags and accessories, and it’s sold over 29 million bags to date. My favorite part of the site by far is the range of brands it carries, from my personal favorite suitcase brand (Calpak) to other well known favorites like Tumi, Samsonite and more. And right now...

Watch Cardi B’s Daughter Kulture, 1, Ride in a Luxury Toy Car

“On my way to [withdraw] money out my mommy’s bank account,” Cardi B captioned the cute video of her 1-year-old daughter Kulture on Thursday Cardi B‘s 1-year-old daughter looks ready to be pre-approved for her driver’s license in 15 years’ time, expertly navigating behind the wheel of a luxury kids’ ride-on car in a video her mom shared to Instagram Thursday morning. Strapped into the seat of the hot-pink Luxury Kids Car Club’s Rolls Royce Cullinan, Kulture adorably hangs one arm out the side of the open-top car as it moves forward, wearing a floral top and pink bucket hat. Notably, a vanity name plate reading “KULTURE” can be seen on the front of the car. “On my way to [withdraw] money out my mommy’s bank account,” the “Please Me” rapper, 26, captioned the cute footage, crediting her sister Hennessy Carolina for the gift: “My auntie Henny bought me this car

Look out below: Danger lurks underground from aging gas pipes

About every other day over the past decade, a gas leak in the United States has destroyed property, hurt someone or killed someone, a USA TODAY Network investigation finds. The most destructive blasts have killed at least 135 people, injured 600 and caused $2 billion in damages since 2004. • The explosion that leveled part of a New York City block in East Harlem in March, killing eight and injuring 48 more. • A blast that flattened the concrete floors of an apartment building in Birmingham, Ala., killing one woman in December. • A flash fireball in 2012 that left an Austin man dead, a scarred foundation where his house once stood and debris strewn across yards of his neighbors. The gas leaks that fueled those blasts are not uncommon. Neither is the cast-iron pipe — some of it more than a century old — that is the chief suspect in each of those three explosions and many others, according to the investigation by USA TODAY and affiliated newspapers and TV stations across the country. And those totals don’t include tens of thousands more hazardous gas leaks that were caught before disaster struck. The causes are many and complex, and often outside of the utility company’...

There aren’t many shoe designs that really rock the boat. Most just shuffle around some existing

There aren’t many shoe designs that really rock the boat. Most just shuffle around some existing technologies in new and interesting ways, but not the Giro Empire VR70 Knit. Before these showed up at the office, I had no frame of reference for what a knit cycling shoe would feel like in my hands, let alone on my feet. Shoes are supposed to be made of leather, rubber, plastic and carbon fiber. Socks are supposed to be knit. But the Empire VR70s are more than a pair of socks with cleats bolted to them. Most of the shoe feels traditionally rigid thanks to the thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) structure that partially surrounds an underskin of Giro’s DWR-treated Xnetic knit fabric. TPU is a close relative of the skateboard wheel. It’s rubbery to the touch, but has relatively little stretch to it. The material is especially thick around the base and the heel, but it’s thin and generously vented on the sides where lightly perforated sections of the Xnetic fabric show through. And like the TPU exoskeleton, that knit structure is totally seamless. That’s part of this shoe’s genius. Its body can be shaped from whole cloth, so to speak. And unlike nearly any other textile you’ll find in fo...

Bonds Abandons Muscly Blond Stereotype, Experts Say It’…

Best mates who are drag queens. A traditionally tattooed Samoan-Kiwi mother with her newborn. IVF triplets born to three different mothers. These are some of the diverse stories featured in Bonds’ Christmas campaign, ‘It’s The Bonds That Make The Season’. Then there’s the young woman who defied medical experts to donate a life-saving kidney to her sister, a sight-impaired woman and her guide dog, plus a couple married for 70 years. The campaign stars range in age from nine months to 91 years old, whose touching stories were “critical to creating this idea”, according to Kedda Ghazarian, the brand’s marketing manager. “We discovered Shirley and Leigh, a local Bendigo couple married for 70 years, through a local newspaper article, and others through word of mouth,” Ghazarian told 10 daily. “It was important for us to choose stories that really represent the fabric of Australia and different stories that would strike a cord with different viewers.” The ‘Bonded by ’Aiga’ clip features mum Bailey Tuiomanufili and bub Lila (‘aiga means “family” in Samoan). “I always love ...
