Welcome to An Open Suitcase! Formerly The Adult Side of Disney, An Open Suitcase gives a nod to Alice in Wonderland’s “Curiouser and curiouser” quote. Here at An Open Suitcase, I want to live life to the fullest and be left “curiouser” in the best sense of the word. There’s a great big world out there, and it is meant to be explored. I hope you join me on my journey through not only my travels, but how I fill everyday life and experiences with fun with my family. I might as well leave the suitcase open, because I’m ready for the next adventure. 

Founder, Janice Brady is based in South Carolina and works closely with several social media networks and large brands including Disney, Walmart, Target and Best Buy. She has been an invited influencer to Disney Social Media Moms Celebration (2015 and 2016), as well as one of a select group of blogging influencers to attend promotional events surrounding new Disney movie releases. Brands worked with: Disney Parks, Universal Orlando, Walmart, Toys R Us, Best Buy.

During her years of blogging, Janice found not all in the blogging community were willing to help a new or less seasoned blogger. Because of this in 2017 she created a blogger retreat event to bring together a small group of bloggers and social media influencers. Bloggers helping other bloggers to grow their brand. Ten bloggers in a camper, #glampingbloggers2017, sharing successes and failures was a huge success thanks to help from sponsors that were willing to jump in because of the relationship she has developed with them during her years of blogging. The event “Glamping Bloggers” produced 11.2 million impressions on Twitter during the four days of the event. 

Janice is currently a “Top Florida Blogger” for Destinations in Florida Travel, Brand Backer, BlogHer Network, Clever Network, Entertainment New Media Network, a Best Buy Blogger and product reviewer, US Family Guide Blogger Network, and SITS Girls Blogger Network.

Janice has also done product promotion on local television news shows in the Myrtle Beach area.
