Kickstarter and Shark Tank seem to be hotbeds of innovation, especially for unique travel products like AquaVault and Onewheel. One of the simplest but most useful ideas to come of this start-up culture is the Hoodie Pillow, a line of pillowcases that, you guessed it, have a sweatshirt hood sewn on.
Robert Herjavec invested $90,000 for 15 percent of the company, which has since expanded to travel neck pillows and hooded beach towels. The pillowcases fit your standard pillow measuring 20 by 32 inches. The fabric is your typical sweatshirt material, a blend of 80 percent cotton and 20 percent polyester, which is machine washable.
The oversized hood allows people to cover their eyes when laying back, or sleep on their side while keeping their head warm. A side pocket is stitched in for holding your cellphone, in addition to portholes to thread your headphones into the hood without any tangling.
The Hoodie Pillow is available in memory foam or inflatable and is also hand washable. If you’re going to the shore, their beach towel hoodie is perfect for sunbathers with a protective SPF 50 hood and a strap that converts the towel into a shoulder bag.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.
