Personally, I'm fueled by three passions: Food, fashion and travel. While they each are fairly equal, depending on the opportunity I might give up my daily ration of food for an over-water bungalow in the Maldives or a Tom Ford white summer suit with the side tabs. Considering my love of the above, one of my most needed and used Suit Your Life accessories is luggage. Over the years Iâ€™ve used, destroyed, and tried every type of low-end to high-end piece of luggage on the market, as well as mastered the carry-on essentials to make the trip and arrival as stress-free as possible. Before you book a flight for your summer travel and grab that old duffle bag from your college days or green suitcase set from the back of your parentâ€™s closet, try these plane, train, bus, and donkey-tested luggage options and travel accessories. â€”Gardy V.

Someone once asked me what I did for a living and I gave them the simplest answer I knew, "I panhandle, shop, and telemarket". A slightly more complicated answer is that I am the Co-Managing director of a nonprofit, Hearts4Haiti Global initiative (H4HGI) that raises funds through large-scale fundraising events, grants, and partnerships to create, implement, and oversee programmatic initiatives in Haiti. Iâ€™m also an image consultant that counsels individualsâ€”primarily men and corporate clientsâ€”on appearance, behavior, and communication skills through individual consultations, coaching, presentations, seminars, and workshops. Lastly, in my free time I write about my two passionsâ€”fashion and travelâ€”in my Suit Your Life column here on BlackEnterprise.com.
