First up, we're all struggling to get in as many backyard barbecues as possible before winter sets in. And while we can't control the weather, we can control exactly how we cook our meat with a Kalamazoo Hybrid Grill. The Kalamazoo Hybrid Grill lets you decide whether you want to use gas, charcoal or wood to fire up those burgers and features three different laser-cut grill grates which can be customized if you really want to put your own signature on everyone's food. Its roomy, wood drawer is tailored to hold charcoal briquettes, wet wood chips or tree limbs and split logs. This means you can cook a perfect steak by searing it on a direct grill and then letting it cook on an indirect grill as it basks in a woodsmoke cloud of deliciousness. Both built-in and freestanding Hybrid Grill models start at around 10K so if you can't swing it for what's left of this summer, at least you'll have something to save for come next spring.
Next up, nothing perks up a home quite like a living creature. Household plants can bring you a sense of calm and give you an important dose of nature. They can also die a frustrating death if they're not watered properly and on schedule. That's where Click & Grow has managed to simplify this already simple process. Their flowerpot kits make use of a specially designed reservoir equipped with sensors, electronics and water pump. Simply add batteries and water to it. Then insert one of Click & Grow's plant cartridges which contain seeds, nutrients and a special software package. Make sure your flowerpot is getting enough light and watch your garden grow. Instead of watering every few days, you should be able to get by on adding water once a month. If you can't manage to take care of a Click & Grow plant, we strongly advise against pets or children.
And last up, we're getting a luxury look at one of Europe's most stylish hotels. Situated in beautiful Catalonia, the W Barcelona Hotel would be world-renowned for its avant-garde architecture alone - perched along the famous La Barceloneta boardwalk. Travellers lucky enough to stay at W Barcelona will get a chance to experience unrivalled views of the Mediterranean sea, relax in Spain's very first Bliss Spa, train at W's state-of-the-art SWEAT facility or catch a world-class DJ while enjoying a few drinks at the Eclipse rooftop nightclub. With 473 guest rooms ranging in price from $300 a night all the way up to almost fourteen-thousand dollars a night for its Extreme Wow Suite, the W Barcelona Hotel has a luxury package for everyone. Be sure to book your return ticket home in advance, otherwise you may never leave this place.
