Competition: Win a Limited Edition Kate Spade Travel Tote

This weekend, as I made my way around Mystique in Santorini, I had the most appropriate bag by my side, and was proud to be one of the first in the world to carry it. Many of you may have seen I instagrammed the bag I’m speaking of, the “Paradise Island” Kate Spade tote, over the weekend. After posting the picture I was inundated with emails and messages on twitter asking where one could be purchased. Let me first apologise for not getting straight back to you. I had this post up my sleeve and couldn’t yet reveal that not only could I tell you where to get them, but I had also been given five to give away to FFG readers! Yup, this here’s a competition!

Let’s give a little bit of background, first and foremost. Now you already know I was travelling with Starwood Preferred Guest this weekend, so there’s a bit of tie in here for those wondering where I’m going with this. Starwood have just released their 2013 Members’ Favourite Resorts list, the third annual list which recognises the most loved luxury resorts across nine specific categories. To celebrate the release, SPG have teamed up with Kate Spade to exclusively bring you four fun totes celebrating all we love about travel, and specifically what guests at Starwood resorts love most about their getaways with the luxury resorts. From golf to spa references, there’s a whimsical saying here for every traveller.

The limited edition totes are available to pre-order now on and retail for $198.

For those of you that can’t stand to live without one of these gorgeous bags in your life, I’m happy to say FFG has been given five to give away to FFG readers. I want to make sure each bag goes to the best home so here’s what you need to do to enter…

1. Leave a comment below telling us at FFG where you would carry your Kate Spade x Starwood Preferred Guest Tote this summer. Make it good as we’ll be narrowing down the winners based on originality here.

2. Make sure you leave a way for us to contact you in the comment. This can be your email address or twitter handle. Whichever you are more comfortable sharing.

3. The competition will run for exactly one week. The winners, therefore, will be notified on the 14th of May.  And not to worry as the competition is open to all! 

There are five bags to be won… so there’s a huge chance to win here. Enter your mother, sister, best friend or neighbour… just make sure you leave the appropriate details below!

Easy enough, right? Let me see some good entries people… trust me when I say the bags are worth the effort.

Now the FFG competition may end there, but there is one more competition you won’t want to miss out on with Starwood Preferred Guest and Kate Spade. The two have teamed up to offer one lucky winner the trip of a lifetime, which includes a dream vacation for you and a plus one, a shopping spree at Kate Spade, as well as the Kate Spade Starwood Preferred Guest Tote and a piece of streamline for Kate Spade Luggage. Man, that was a mouthful. Lots going on there but you’ll understand it’s a must enter.

Good luck to everyone and happy travel dreaming! And while we are on the topic of dreaming, I don’t mind mentioning that Starwood Preferred Guest truly are wonderful at making destination dreams come true. If you have any doubt in your mind, check out my recent trip to Mystique.
