$T2eC16ZHJGwE9n)yUZE1BQqCC+Mp2w~~60_35

In the season 3 finale Rachel Berry traveled to New York in style, toting an adorable pink suitcase. Rachel’s  carry-on was created by popular luggage maker Heys USA. Although that specific suitcase has been discontinued, there are plenty of alternatives to Miss Berry’s carry-on!

First is the Travel Concepts xCase, a polycarbonate hardshell suitcase fit for a star! The hardshell body of the suitcase adds an extra layer of durability, keeping all of your valuables safe and secure while traveling. The luggage piece also comes with a fully lined interior divider with a zippered organizational pocket and tie-down straps to keep clothes in place during your adventures. The Travel Concepts xCase is extremely affordable, meaning you can have style and functionality without breaking the bank!

Another excellent alternative to Rachel’s pink carry-on is the Artemis luggage set. Features of the Artemis luggage set include spinning wheels, a polypropylene shell, and a built-in 3-digit lock. The interior of each piece is lined and contains a cross straps to keep belongings secure as you travel!

No matter if you’re journeying to California or New York, Heys USA luggage is a must have for all of your adventures!

A Very Glee-ful Holiday: Pitch Perfect (Two-Disc Combo Pack)

91f2POgpslL._AA1500_

Do you like the singing, dancing, and comedy of Glee? Do you long for more mash-ups and stories of the underdog? If you answered yes to either of these questions, Pitch Perfect is definitely the movie for you!

So, what exactly is Pitch Perfect about? Well, arriving at her new college, Beca (Anna Kendrick) finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together. When Beca leads this a cappella singing group out of their traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of college music competitions.

You have a rag-tag band of misfits, singing, mash-ups, and competitions, just like Glee! Gleeks will also appreciate the films’ comedic tone, which reminded me of a throwback to the earlier seasons of Glee; you’ll laugh until you cry during this movie, trust me! And what would a musical comedy be without music?! Every song is pitch perfect (pun intended) and you’ll run right to your computer to download the movie’s fabulous soundtrack, featuring vocals from Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Skylar Astin, and more!

Pitch Perfect is an instant classic, one that people will be quoting and watching for years to come! The Two-Disc Combo Pack features the film on Blu-Ray and DVD, as well as a digital copy and an UltraViolet copy. You’ll never be without this hilarious comedy! Bonus features include:

• Starships, the Pitch Perfect Music Video
• Deleted and Extended Scenes
• Meanwhile…
• Line-O-Ramas
• Backstage at Barden
• On the Set: Burrito Drive By!
• A Look Inside
• Feature Commentary with Director Jason Moore and Producers Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman
• Feature Commentary with Producer Paul Brooks

Pitch Perfect is available at retailers nationwide on Tuesday, December 18th.

What are you waiting for? Grab your microphone, turn up the music, and get ready to sing along with Pitch Perfect. Just watch out for flying burritos!

Glee’s Thanksgiving episode featured a cover of the Scissor Sisters’ hit new song ‘Let’s Have A Kiki’. Now, you too can have a kiki like Kurt, Rachel, Isabelle, and their holiday guests! And no kiki would be complete without the brand new Kiki related merchandise available in the Scissor Sisters’ online store. Products available include a t-shirt, mug, tea towel, and briefs. You can view the entire collection here. Take a look at photos of the products below:

Do you remember what song Will and Emma chose as ‘their song’ during their first date? Can you recall who Rachel thought her mother was in season 1? Can you name every couple combination there is to know?  Test that knowledge with your friends by playing Imagination Games’ brand new Glee Trivia Box! Featuring over 100 trivia questions from the first three seasons of Glee, this game is the perfect way to prove you’re the ultimate Gleek! The game is perfect for Gleeks of all ages and works perfectly for two or more players!

Admittedly, I’ve seen every episode of Glee multiple times and even I had trouble answering some of these questions. The trivia box is a great way to have fun with your friends and reminiscence on episodes of Glee’s past! With 189 questions, you’ll have hours of entertainment quizzing each other!

You can find the Glee Trivia Box in retailers nationwide, including Barnes & Noble, Wal*Mart, Toys ‘R’ Us, and more! So, fire up those old DVDs, read over your Glee notes, and get ready to prove you are the ultimate Gleek!

A Very Glee-ful Holiday: Lea Michele’s Speck Phone Case

;

The holidays are right around the corner and, just like in previous years, I’ll be posting various Glee-related clothes, music, merchandise, and more that are the perfect gifts for any Gleek! Check back each day for new Glee-ful holiday posts! 

First up on our list is the Speck CandyShell Satin iPhone case in black, just like the one Lea Michele (Rachel) was spotted using while filming Glee in November! The sleek and stylish SATIN cases are available for many phones and models, including the iPhone 5 and are available in a variety of colors. SATIN cases feature two layers of protection to keep your mobile device safe and come coated in a matte-soft touch coating; you truly feel like you’re holding satin in the palm of your hand! To help protect your phone from damage, the cases also come equipped with a shock-absorbing inside coating.

FUN FACT: Cast members Naya Rivera (Santana) and Darren Criss (Blaine) also use Speck cases for their phones. 

I personally love the CandyShell SATIN case. The satin touch adds an extra comfort to holding your phone and the variety of colors help make sure you’re always in style. The added shock-absorbing coating on the insides allows you to breathe easy and remind you your phone is safe from damage! Speck CandyShell SATIN cases truly have the most important things to look for when choosing a phone case: comfort, style, and protection.

The Speck CandyShell SATIN cases retail for $34.95 and can be found online and in stores nationwide.
