White Sheets, Better Sleep

Have you noticed you always tend to sleep better in hotel rooms? White bedspreads may be the answer. White bedsheets create a feeling of luxury and serenity, making it easier for you to fall asleep. Consider switching your sheets to the classic color. You’ll be catching more ZZZs in no time.

Find Your Color Season

Have you ever noticed that the same shirt looks great on someone else but not on yourself? Don’t worry, you are probably just a different color season! Read on for more about what that means and how best to dress.

Find Your Color Season

Stack of sweaters

Have you ever noticed that the same shirt looks great on someone else but not on yourself? Don’t worry, you are probably just a different color season! People are divided into Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter color palettes based on their natural features and coloring.

For example, if your skin tone has a warmer undertone, or you consider yourself a redhead, the odds are you’re an Autumn. Dressing in earthy tones like brown, dark green, or orange will help you shine! If your skin has a cooler, pale undertone, and you have dark brown or dirty blonde hair, you’re probably a Winter.

Dressing according to the right season can help you look your best all the time! Take these steps to determine your color palette, or you can do a quiz here!

Getting Back to Travel

Backpack with map under a bridge

It’s probably been a few years since you took a vacation or traveled out of your area. But borders are open, the weather is right, and it may just be the season for you to explore somewhere new!

This time of the year is considered “off-season” for tourism, so wherever you go, you’re sure to hit lower prices and lower crowds.

Whether you decide to experience the architecture of Spain, relax on the beaches of Jamaica, or hit the slopes in Colorado, give yourself the opportunity to take it all in. Check out these must-do travel destinations, or head somewhere you’ve always wanted to go!

Maybe flying isn’t your speed, though—maybe you prefer to sail! Cruises are a great way to travel to Alaska, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and more. Never been on a cruise before? It’s more convenient than you might think. Read the 10 advantages to cruise vacations and you’ll be booking today.
