You've considered listing "packing" as a skill on your resume.
I've struggled to balance my curling iron or straightener in teeny bathrooms, sometimes even resorting to placing it on the floor and hoping I don't step on it. This Hot Iron Holster, made out of silicone, attaches to any smooth surface and will hold any styling tools, no matter how hot they are. It's perfect for at-home use if you have a small bathroom and great to throw in your suitcase for traveling. Of course it was invented by a busy mom! Comes in pink, purple, black and white; $29.95 at hotironholster.com
Check out NYC's first alfresco bedroom where you can "glamp" in five-star luxury on the wraparound terrace of a 1,000-square-foot penthouse on the 17th floor. Enjoy a one-hour couples massage on the terrace, dinner for two, gourmet snacks including s'mores, champagne and strawberries, one-hour live music performance, TV and DVD player with plenty of romantic movies set in New York and breakfast for two. The room is available Memorial Day through Labor Day and the rate starts at $1,999 a night. It will definitely be a night to remember. Please visit www.stayaka.com or call 888.381.4488.
One of the highlights of my trip to Ventura, CA was a visit to nearby Limoneira, one of the largest lemon growers in the U.S. and seeing how millions of lemons are processed. Now the grower is sponsoring a Pucker Face Contest. Take a photo of your best pucker face and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number and Pucker Face Submission in the subject line. You can also post it on Limoneira's Facebook page and tweet @Limoneira, tagging the post with #PuckerUp and #LimoneiraContest. Visit www.limoneira.com/Unleash/PuckerFace for more information.
