Who needs a cumbersome carry-on when you can just store your essentials right in your clothing? Apparel turned luggage might seem like an outrageous (and likely uncomfortable) concept, but one company has potentially found the perfect formula.

Thanks to JetSmarter, a relatively new app that allows you to book a flight via your phone (sort of the same way you'd book a car on Uber, albeit with a lot more money involved), the traditionally complicated and expensive process of getting on a private plane has become simpler and easier.

It's a jungle out there. Nowhere is that more true than New York City's largest airport, JFK, which has announced a state-of-the-art luxury animal facility to be opened next year, WTVR CBS 6.

No matter how luxurious the suite or Dwell-worthy the Airbnb, no property can give you all the comforts of home. As someone who travels for a living, I've learned to deal with sluggish Internet, pillows with the texture of pizza dough, and missing out on watching Lisa and Jeff from Duluth, Minnesota, awkwardly order tacos and debate closet space in Tulum. What I haven't learned to deal without is cereal. Frosted see more

The Luxe Boutique Hostel Has Arrived

Earlier this month, Chicago welcomed The Freehand, a new "hotel-hostel" in the River North neighborhood. The 217 rooms are a mix of shared and private, including two penthouse suites, giving it a modern, multidimensional feel.
