This Might Just Be the Lowest Price We’ve Seen on Vitamix

We independently select these products—if you buy from one of our links, we may earn a commission. All prices were accurate at the time of publishing. If you’re looking for a top-of-the-line blender you’ll use for years to come, you simply can’t go wrong with a Vitamix. Unsurprisingly, Vitamix blenders are regularly editor-favorites around here, thanks to their long-lasting, powerful motors and strong airplane-grade stainless steel blades. One of our favorite blenders from our Best Blender list even happens to be the Vitamix 5200 Blender. But as anyone who has shopped for a Vitamix before knows, these appliances can cost a pretty penny. That’s why we suggest you buy one when it’s on sale — just like this special deal on Vitamix blenders happening right now at QVC!

When having trouble falling asleep, your instinct might be to reach for some melatonin. Or, you might reassess your pre-bed routine. Are you exposed to too much blue light? Unable to calm anxious thoughts? We’ve all been there, but something you might be forgetting to consider is the comfort of your bed. With record-breaking temperatures making their way through many states, it could be time to switch out that heavy comforter for something more weather-appropriate. Or perhaps your pillows aren’t as soft (or firm) as you’d like them to be.

I Tested the Internet’s Favorite Cooling Mattress and It Totally Lives Up to the Hype (Bonus: It’s on Sale!)

We independently select these products—if you buy from one of our links, we may earn a commission. All prices were accurate at the time of publishing. If there’s one thing I’m passionate about, it’s cooling bedding. As someone who’s been a hot sleeper since childhood, I know that if the bed I’m in gets too hot, I won’t be getting a good night’s sleep — and this is something that always plagues me when I visit my parents. While they have a lovely guest room, there’s a slight problem with it: it’s the hottest room in the house. Facing the front of their Florida home, the guest room sits on the side of the house that gets the most sun, thus making it a hot zone. Top that off with the fact that (much to my dismay) they don’t like to crank up the A/C, and it can get pretty toasty in there. With a month long trip on the horizon, I went digging for a solution that could help make my stay (and anyone’s stay) a bit more comfortable. The answer? A cooling mattress. But not just any cooling mattress: the Brooklyn Aurora Hybrid Mattress.

The Brilliant Spot in the Kitchen Where My Mom Keeps Her To-Do List

I like to think I’m pretty organized. I’ve been this way since I was a kid, and I have one person in particular to thank for it: my mom. She’s been setting the example for running an organized household since I was in diapers. I remember the giant paper calendar she hung in our kitchen, with each member of the family’s obligations and appointments highlighted in a different color. I also remember spending rainy Saturdays organizing our board game closet together — an activity I enjoyed (!) — and marveling at how she thought to stack the games vertically, like books on a bookshelf, rather than in sloppy piles.

Nearly All the Furniture in This Charming 100-Year-Old Beach Bungalow Is Vintage

Name: Sydney Beach Zester, my husband, and our dog. Location: Carolina Place — Wilmington, North Carolina. Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: My husband and I bought our beach bungalow, who we lovingly call “The Bishop House” after the original owner, Ms. Ida Bishop, in July 2021. Like so many others, we had a real “what the heck do we want out of life” kind of reckoning during the pandemic, which ultimately had us packing up our things in the Blue Ridge Mountains and heading across the state to our little historic, coastal town. I work full time in public health and as an artist and my husband works for a tech startup. We both went remote during the pandemic, which gave us the flexibility to really live wherever we wanted. I’ve always dreamed of owning a historic home and so we ended up buying our little bungalow in the Historic Carolina Place neighborhood in Wilmington, NC. She turns 100 years old this year! We’re going to throw her a birthday party.
