As a chronic over-packer, there have definitely been a few times I’ve had to waddle through airport security wearing six layers of clothing that wouldn’t fit in my suitcase. Now a new product called Jaktogo is taking that idea to a whole new level. Jaktogo appears to be nothing more than a thin tote bag, but if you find yourself reaching the baggage weight limit with no extra room in your checked bag, Jaktogo folds out into a giant jacket with 14 pockets ready to accommodate up to 30 pounds of stuff. The weird wearable suitcase is available as a dress (shown) or poncho in addition to the original jacket style, and can be ordered in denim or leather. So, would you rather wear 30 pounds of luggage to beat the system or shell out 50 bucks to check another bag? I’m totally fine throwing on a few sweaters at once, but I’m not sure I’m ready to wear a garment that looks like a fully loaded adult diaper, no matter how much money it saves me… [Jaktogo]

Travel Diary: A Long, Wonderful Weekend In Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville is quite possibly the most buzzworthy town in America right now, with a new primetime drama named after it and a spate of famous residents like Taylor Swift and Nicole Kidman singing its praises. At the beginning of this month, my boyfriend Nick and I took a long-awaited trip to this awesome city with three goals: eat good barbecue, hear some live bluegrass music, and hang out with Jack White. We accomplished two out of three. Read on to find out which ones… Keep reading »

Frisky City Guide: What To Do In Nashville, TN

Dear Connie Britton
Amelia's somewhat creepy love letter to the "Nashville" star. Read More »

Nashville will no longer sit by and fulfill your stereotype of a sleepy country music town populated by starving songwriters in cowboy boots with acoustic guitars. Rather, it’s a city that’s fast-tracking itself to become the South’s most thriving metropolis, with flourishing new neighborhoods offering the best in music, food, and culture, all without sacrificing the heritage of southern hospitality and charm. (It’s also the setting of the new ABC drama “Nashville,” starring Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, which premieres tonight at 10/9C.) The next time you stop through, make sure to sample the diverse atmosphere and discover what each corner of Music City has to offer.

10 Annoying Airplane Behaviors That Should Probably Be Illegal

Worst Seatmates Ever
What's the worst airplane seatmate you've ever had? Read More »

Over the past few years, I’ve traveled quite a bit and been pretty lucky when it comes to airplane seatmates. I’ve been fortunate enough to sit next to friendly, polite, interesting people who respect my personal space but will happily tell me thrilling tales about their childhood spent in a religious cult when prompted. That all changed this weekend, when, over the course of four short flights, I encountered a morning talker, an excessive ball scratcher, a sulfurous human gas machine, and a man who was smugly eating heaping bites of slimy homemade coleslaw out of a plastic bag. This is ridiculous, I thought, there should be laws against smug coleslaw crunching on airplanes! Since we managed to outlaw smoking on planes, here are some of the in-flight infractions that should be next… Keep reading »
