S’well has something for everyone — whether you are a coffee drinker, water drinker or soup eater. S’well has a product for you.


The S’well bottle was designed with a mission to eliminate plastic water bottles in the world. The S’well bottle is offered in multiple shapes, sizes and designs, which makes it fun for everyone. S’well started off with just water bottles, but then developed a tumbler line, different types of bottles and a food bowl.


All of S’well’s products are well designed with triple-wall technology that keeps things cold for up to 24 hours and hot for 12. The hard exterior makes them long-lasting and durable. They are eco-friendly and reusable, making them BPA-free.


S’well offers products in many different colors and designs. They are bound to have a design for everyone. From patterns to animal prints to just plain colors, you will have a hard time picking out the perfect one for you.


I have a S’well water bottle and love it; I take it everywhere with me. I had it in the hot sun all day long at the beach and my water stayed cold and refreshing.


One of the only things I personally do not like about the bottle is it isn’t dishwasher safe. It has to be hand-washed and the narrow neck makes it hard to fully clean it.

New Year’s Travel Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions tend to include everything from lose weight and read more to save money and travel more. Instead of just saying travel more, come up with some concrete goals to accomplish that resolution in the year to come. Before the ball drops at midnight, think of the items you want to add to your travel list.

Pack Your Bags, You’re Going to Tokyo!

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with. From ANA's amazing in-flight food to its excellent customer service, it comes as no surprise ANA has been awarded five stars for its seventh consecutive year by the SKYTRAX World Airline Rating.

24 Hours in Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh’s fairly compact size makes it possible to see the highlights in 24 hours, although the enchanting capital of Scotland warrants much more time. But if you’re only able to fit in one day of sightseeing, here’s what you shouldn’t miss.

Under $100: Guilin, China

One day is not enough time to explore all of the wonders in and around Guilin. But if you find yourself short on time and with a limited budget, you can certainly still enjoy this beautiful city.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Destinations for Skipping Christmas

Ever since the release of Christmas with the Kranks in 2004, the idea of just up and skipping Christmas, especially in favor of a luxurious vacation, has always been in the back of my mind.
