Easily Transport Wine Home from Your Travels
It used to be that bringing home a bottle of wine from your travels meant wrapping the bottle in a layer or two of plastic bags and then wrapping it in layers of clothes and hoping it would arrive home safely.
On my last trip to Ireland I packed my Vinni Bag Travel Wine Carrier as I had plans to bring home a bottle of Mead for my husband. I was really impressed with how easy the Vinni Bag was to use and how strong the plastic bag is. I love that it inflates to transport bottles in a cushion of air and adore how nicely it flattens and packs away when not in use. My only issue? I only had one!

Win a $10K Family Vacation from Embassy Suites
According to a new survey Embassy Suites conducted with Parents magazine, more than one-half of families consider themselves “vacation dabblers” who take days off sporadically throughout the year for shorter, one- to two-night trips. People need at least three days to reap the full restorative effects of time off, but the reality is that families are taking shorter trips so it’s important to get as much as you can out of every vacation day.
Facebook Contest: Embassy Suites is helping families “more-imize” those vacation days to get as much fun, relaxation and family time out of them as possible with a “Get More Vacation” contest on Facebook. Between now and July 20, visitors can simply upload a picture of their family’s “vacation face” – that look of excitement and joy when they’ve finally booked that much-needed vacation – and a caption explaining how their family plans to get the most out of their summer travel, for a chance to win one of five week-long trips and $10k in spending cash.
