Fun Facts About the Spring Equinox
If you’ve been looking forward to spring for months, great news: it’s finally here. Or at least, it’s almost here. The Spring Equinox falls tomorrow—earlier than it has in more than 100 years! In the northern part of the world, the equinox can fall any time from March 19th to the 21st, but it’s typically on the 20th or 21st. What does this mean? Simply that we will start to enjoy longer days even earlier this year. The Spring Equinox is the longest day of the year, when the day and night are just about “equal.” And this happens all across the globe. To celebrate the Spring Equinox, consider rising with the sun tomorrow or push back dinner a bit so you can enjoy the sunset. What are you looking forward to the most about the spring season?

Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas Is a New Theater Near Mallory Square
See a movie in style at the new Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas, a movie theater that offers a full menu and in-theater waiting service. At the push of a button, you’ll be able to order food and a cocktail right from your seat. The menu includes everything you’d find on a restaurant menu, from nachos to pizzas, salads, burgers, and of course, popcorn. There’s also a kids’ menu, as well as beer, wine, and cocktails. To order, guests just simply press a button on the chairs and a waiter or waitress will serve you. It’s rare to be able to eat dinner, have a beer, and watch a movie in a theater all at the same time — but that’s exactly what Cinépolis makes happen. The two-by-two seats have trays to make eating easy, and the seats are large, comfortable, and fully recline. Parking is readily available and movie tickets are cheaper than many other area theaters. If you plan to make a return visit, the theater offers a rewards program that includes a free popcorn when you sign up.
Follow These Tips for a Fall-Ready Apartment
Cozy sweater season is finally upon us, and it’s not just your wardrobe that deserves a makeover. Your apartment should be ready for autumn, too! If you need some seasonal design inspiration, here are a few decor tips for fall. 1. Toss up some twinkle lights. What could be simpler than stringing up a few strands of lights? Twinkle lights instantly create a cozy vibe within your home, transforming a simple space into something almost magical. You’ll love curling up on the couch with the softly glimmering lights hanging overhead. 2. DIY a dried herb and flower wreath. If you want to adorn your door in a way that doesn’t involve autumn leaves, try this DIY wreath instead. In place of the fall foliage, it showcases dried herbs and colorful flowers to create a more contemporary look. 3. Stock vases with pumpkins. When it comes to fall decor, you can’t go wrong with the classic pumpkin. But if you want to elevate the simple gourd, find pint-sized pumpkins in a few different shapes and hues and pack them into large glass vases. The result will be a stunning centerpiece for your dining room table or a chic vignette for the living room. 4. Create a “get cozy” station. ‘Tis the season to snuggle up! Encourage your guests to do so by stacking some soft throw blankets in plain sight, perhaps capping them off with a plump pumpkin or a small chalkboard sign that actually instructs them to, “Get cozy!”

Simple Tips to Help You Follow Through on a New Year's Resolution
Making a New Year’s resolution is easy—sticking to it is a whole lot harder! But with a little perseverance and a whole lot of planning, you can be on your way to making your goals for 2020 a reality, whether you’ve resolved to be more mindful of your budget, you’re seeking to stay active, or something else altogether. Now that January is almost behind us, read on for three tips to help you stick with your New Year’s resolutions. Start small. By breaking your resolution down into smaller, more actionable goals, you can make your overall objective a little less daunting. For instance, if you’ve resolved to save $1,000 by December 2020, consider putting away $83/month or $19.23/week into a savings account. Your weekly successes will help keep you motivated, especially as you see your bank account balance grow. Buddy up. If you’ve made a resolution to get active this year, enlist a friend or coworker to join you in your goal. Partnering with another person helps keep you accountable; you’ll be less likely to throw in the towel when you know someone else is counting on you for moral support and companionship. Make a realistic goal. It’s okay for your resolutions to be ambitious, but they shouldn’t be so lofty that you’re setting yourself up for failure. Think of 2020 as the first year of the rest of your life. This year, you’ll be making positive changes that will set the groundwork for your future successes. Making changes to one’s lifestyle or habits should be seen as a marathon, not a sprint!
