Continuing on with my vintage moment, everything from the 50s, 60s, and 70s seems to be appealing to me right now. Maybe its the sunshine making it's appearance more often nowadays, I don't know. Either way, I found this top and it reminded me of a summer BBQ. I decided to pair it with some turquoise to make it more modern and eye-catching. I love the mix of turquoise and red coral in jewelry. This combination is wearable with so many colors like yellow, white, cobalt blue, and neutrals. Brightly-colored shorts/pants are fashionable this spring and summer as well, making for a fresh alternative to your old reliable blue jeans. 

Pop of health/fitness: Tips for sleeping better:
  • Set a regular bedtime. Go to bed at the same time every night. Choose a time when you normally feel tired, so that you don’t toss and turn. Try not to break this routine on weekends when it may be tempting to stay up late. If you want to change your bedtime, help your body adjust by making the change in small daily increments, such as 15 minutes earlier or later each day.
  • Wake up at the same time every day. If you’re getting enough sleep, you should wake up naturally without an alarm. If you need an alarm clock to wake up on time, you may need to set an earlier bedtime. As with your bedtime, try to maintain your regular wake–time even on weekends.
  • Nap to make up for lost sleep. If you need to make up for a few lost hours, opt for a daytime nap rather than sleeping late. This strategy allows you to pay off your sleep debt without disturbing your natural sleep–wake rhythm, which often backfires in insomnia and throws you off for days.
  • Be smart about napping. While taking a nap can be a great way to recharge, especially for older adults, it can make insomnia worse. If insomnia is a problem for you, consider eliminating napping. If you must nap, do it in the early afternoon, and limit it to thirty minutes.
  • Fight after–dinner drowsiness. If you find yourself getting sleepy way before your bedtime, get off the couch and do something mildly stimulating to avoid falling asleep, such as washing the dishes, calling a friend, or getting clothes ready for the next day. If you give in to the drowsiness, you may wake up later in the night and have trouble getting back to sleep.
