Pack Hack
Stay organized while you’re on vacation with packing cubes or bags that come in different sizes. Pack clothes in one, accessories in another and save one for laundry. Try this easy method (and a method that lets you take more than you’d planned) with a set of six from Ikea for $7.99. Look for the Forfina travel bags. These make a great little gift for your favorite traveler!
If this system works for you, upgrade to another set available on Amazon for $26.99. Choose from over a dozen colors.
Now, score some free beauty supplies – perfectly sized for travel! Check out where to find them at The Penny Hoarder.

Guinness to the U.S.
Ireland-based brewer Guinness is bringing its namesake to a dedicated brewery in the Maryland port city of Baltimore – the company’s first brewery in the U.S. in more than 60 years. The company transformed a post-prohibition whiskey distillery into the new $80 million dollar brewery.
The new Guinness Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House is a 66-acre facility with an interactive visitor’s center. Guests can take a one-hour tour to watch Guinness brewers and the brewing process in action. Two full on-site restaurants will offer Maryland-inspired cuisine and beer-pairing menus. Local food trucks will serve more casual fare near the pint-glass-shaped outdoor courtyard.
The brewery opens August 3.

Hollywood FLA
The new Circ Hotel has opened in downtown Hollywood – its first new property in 40 years. The sleek 12-story boutique property is located at the new Hollywood Circle in the heart of downtown and directly across from ArtsPark at Young Circle, which contains an amphitheater, a fountain and 10 acres of urban green space.
The Circ Hotel features an onsite restaurant Olivia Restaurant & Bar, an authentic Italian eatery, a rooftop bar and lounge on the hotel pool deck, a coffee house and a fitness center.
The introductory [email protected] package is offered on stays through September 1. Rates from $129 a night include valet parking and a $25 gift card to the Publix market, located in the Hollywood Circle complex, for guests to create a park picnic.
Standard nightly rates at the Circ start from $97.
If you go, talk a stroll through the streets of downtown or take a guided tour to learn about the unique mural and street arts project. The Downtown Hollywood Mural Project is a collection of curated outdoor murals by both local, national and internationally recognized artists.
Hollywood is situated between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami and 10-minutes from the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and seven minutes from the beach.

Staycation Ideas
Head up the road (I-75) to Chattanooga for some family fun, or just for an overnight or two to recharge.
How about a hostel for the small family or a getaway with friends? The Crash Pad fuses boutique hotel features with an inexpensive community atmosphere. Onsite is a full kitchen and living room area to make new friends and to share adventures from the day.
The 529 square foot Hemingway Suite is the newest addition which accommodates up to four guests. This suite rises over the revitalized Southside of Chattanooga and sister business, Flying Squirrel. It features a galley style kitchen, a lounge, queen sofa sleeper, and a queen master bed.
Guest amenities include those you’d expect to find at a business hotel, including free 24-hour computer access and free Wi-Fi throughout the building. Locally roasted coffee and DIY breakfast (eggs, local Niedlov’s bread, spreads) are included in the rate, as well as 24-hour use of the fully-equipped community kitchen. Free parking and storage space for outdoor gear is ideal for climbers, backpackers, and adventurers. There’s also an outdoor hangout space with gas firepit, speakers, and gas grill.
