Women get less sleep then men (6.8 hours vs. 7.1 hours), while, married folks seem to be getting more sleep then their single counterparts (7.1 hours vs. 6.7 hours). 66% of all employees say they’d be better at their job if they got more sleep, and that number goes up to 73% for those 18 to 44.

Getting married today can be incredibly expensive. Get this - the average American couple spends more than $30,000 on their wedding. And along with that pricy celebration you get all the family drama and stress that can come with planning such a party. That’s why more couples are opting to skip the big, formal nuptials and tie the knot at a microwedding instead. These intimate affairs are the opposite of the large black tie extravaganzas and here’s why brides and grooms think this is the way to go.
The edited guest list - With a microwedding, you don’t need to argue over whether you have to invite every one of your cousins or if you should have a no-kids policy. Your guest list is tiny, so people will understand if they didn’t make the cut. And when you look around the room, you’ll be happy to see each face in the (small) crowd.
The doable decor - When you only have to decorate a few tables in a small room or garden patio, you can splurge on flower arrangements, china, or whatever makes your heart happy for your reception.
The anything-goes attire - If you’re walking down the “aisle” at the courthouse or your own backyard, you won’t need a 25-foot couture train. You can keep it simple or wear anything you choose. At a microwedding you can be a bride in a jumpsuit or a huge gown, there are no expectations.
You still get to have your dream wedding - That amazing cake you saw on Instagram? You can still have it. The romantic playlist you’ve been building all your life? You can still have it. Celebrating your marriage on a small scale doesn’t limit you, it allows you to splurge on the things that matter to you without going bankrupt. Brides can have their fantasy wedding, but on a smaller, more affordable, less stressful scale. Sounds ideal!
To see all the latest beauty trends, look no further than Instagram. You can always find the hottest runway looks, newest nail trends and hair colors on Insta. These are the stylish shades you’ll be seeing everywhere this season, especially on social media.
- Vanilla Milkshake - It looks like your average ombre at first, but vanilla milkshake hair has ends the lightest shade of blonde and the roots are left natural for a “lived-in look.”
- Root Beer - This is a fun way to update your brunette hair without making a big commitment. Root beer hair has "subtle ribbons of warm red tints" that add dimension but keep hair dark.
- Champagne Bronde - We know bronde means that middle ground between brown and blonde and this is its cooler sister. Champagne bronde is really light - there are some white strands in there - but it “appears darker through the depth of its tones,” according to Australian hairstylist Kaitlin Jade.
- Cream Soda - Celebs like Hailey Baldwin and Elisabeth Moss are sporting strands this golden shade this fall. Cream soda hair has brown-beige lowlights and really warm gold tones, creating a glow around the face. And it works for both brunettes and blondes.
- Cinnamon Fade - This subtle red is perfect for fall. Colorist Christine Silverman says she creates the cinnamon fade shade by “enriching old highlights with an earthy red gloss,” so the hair has a subtle glow.

Most of us could probably be better about getting regular skin cancer check ups at the dermatologist. But Natalie Killian actually went like she was supposed to and her doc said a suspicious mole was fine, but it actually wasn’t.
The 39-year-old woman from the U.K. visited her dermatologist to have a strange-looking pimple on her chest checked out after first downloading the app SkinVision to take a photo of the bump. The app uses “clinically-proven technology” to assess risk from a photo and Killian’s was considered medium risk, so she followed up with her doctor, who said it was nothing to worry about and sent her home.
But later that year, the team at SkinVision notified Killian to get that spot re-checked. She ignored the email at first, because she assumed her dermatologist knew better than an app, but after she started having “sharp, needle-like pains,” she decided to get a second opinion.
The new doctor gave Killian an urgent two-week cancer referral and the documentation she had from using the app helped because she could show the changes she’s seen in it. She was diagnosed with a basal cell carcinoma and after a biopsy, it was confirmed to be “infiltrating” - which means it can penetrate deeper and be tougher to treat. Thankfully Killian had the lesion surgically removed and she plans to be more vigilant in the future.
