Even after the holidays are over and the new year has begun, family and friends often find their way to our doorsteps. There's something about the cool winter months that make visits with loved ones seem extra special. Whether you're shoveling snow, sporting a rain coat, or enjoying a mild winter somewhere, you're sure to keep your guests cozy this winter by following these tips.
With each passing year, life seems busier and busier. The days get filled with work, appointments, and errands, and the to-do list just never seems to end. Most would agree that it’s time to slow down a bit. And what better time than the new year to take a step back and embrace a more peaceful, minimalist life?
The winter months are upon us and it's time to start cozying up for cooler weather. Some people like to store away their summer clothes and bedding to make room for the layers they'll need in the coming months. Who needs shorts and flip-flop sandals when it's sweater and boot weather? You might think it's time to drag out the flannel sheets along with all the other cool weather gear, but here are some reasons why you might want to keep your cooling sheets on instead.
All of us have had to sleep on a nightmare of a pillow at some point. You know the one. The flat as a pancake and unsupportive one, the super squishy so your head is buried one, or the hard-as-a-rock one. Maybe you slept on it during a hotel stay, or while visiting a friend. You might even still own the pillow and suffer an uncomfortable night's sleep because of it. It's high time you rid yourself of old or terrible pillows and find the right one for your sleep habits. Finding the ideal pillow doesn't have to be hard. Follow this guide and before you know it you'll be drifting off to dreamland on the perfect pillow.
