When it was just you on your own or even you and your partner, choosing where to go on vacation probably wasn’t too difficult, but now that you have kids in the mix, how do you go about choosing a holiday that suits everyone? It’s still possible, but it takes a little more work. Planning the ideal trip should involve everyone.
Review Your Finances
Some vacations are simply going to be out of your reach, so the first step is figuring out what you can afford. Keep in mind that a vacation visiting family nearby can be as relaxing and memorable as one to faraway places that you spend a lot of money to get to, so don’t think of this as a limitation. The family vacation should fit into the budget just like anything else. If you’ve had any big family changes recently, this could be a little trickier. For example, if either parent or a child has started college, finances might be tighter than usual. Many people take out student loans to cover college expenses to repay after graduation, but these generally don’t take care of all costs. If these costs are taking up a big part of your budget, you might want to look into taking out additional loans from brick-and-mortar or online lenders. Whether your budget is larger or smaller than last year, make the necessary adjustments and then narrow down the possibilities before you involve your children.
Have a Family Meeting
This should be a vacation for everyone, and kids will feel more ownership if they are allowed to participate in a decision about where to go. With younger children, it’s best to avoid open-ended questions. Instead, you can give them a choice between three or four destinations, or ask them if they’d prefer to go someplace hot or someplace cold. Older kids can participate more in planning based on their interests.
All-Inclusive or Independent
Do you want a vacation that has lots of activities available for everyone, such as you might find at a resort or on a cruise? Or would you prefer to plan things on your own? Parents of young children often prefer the former simply because there tend to be structured activities their kids can enjoy that also function to give the parents a break. If your children are older and you all tend to go off and do your own thing, be sure to plan certain activities, such as evening meals together, that keep the “family” in family vacation.
Many spoiled vacations could have been saved with a little research ahead of time, whether that includes understanding that the hotel chosen is not as close to the beach as you’d imagined or finding out that the restaurants you’ve picked all have terrible reviews. Online research and even in-person recommendations are not foolproof, but they’re a good way to reduce the likelihood of disappointment as you make your final reservations and set off for what will hopefully be a few days of family fun and relaxation.
Grammy®-nominated multi-platinum singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko has confirmed the March 6th release of CHILOMBO, her highly-anticipated third album via Def Jam Recordings.
The first three advance single releases from CHILOMBO have tallied over 500 million cumulative global streams – the RIAA platinum certified “Triggered” (with over 300 million streams), “None Of Your Concern” (with over 100 million streams), and “P*$$y Fairy (OTW)“.
CHILOMBO proclaims the artist’s full name, Jhené Aiko Efuru CHILOMBO, as it celebrates her coming into her own personal power. The initial jam sessions where she freestyled the lyrics to each song, took place on The Big Island of Hawaii where Jhené’s great grandmother was born. Jhené was inspired by the beauty and power of the island’s volcanoes, having visited throughout the years. Chilombo means wild beast. The volcano is symbolic of the beautiful, yet powerful beast. Jhené Aiko is Chilombo. In contrast to her 2017 album, Trip, which intricately detailed the process of grieving, CHILOMBO finds Jhené embracing her strength and power, and coming into her confidence as a woman, a creator and a healer. She has always embraced magic in her particular brand of soulful, trippy, ethereal R&B, but now on CHILOMBO she has taken it all to another level.
For years, Jhené has been studying the practice of sound healing. With CHILOMBO, she has incorporated crystal alchemy singing bowls on every track. This form of sound healing has been found to be both physically and mentally healing on the cellular level. Jhené hopes to introduce her fans to sound as a form of healing through what she calls “modern mantra” as illustrated by the “triggered protection mantra.”
CHILOMBO follows up the RIAA gold Trip, which debuted on the R&B chart at #1, and instantly became one of the most critically acclaimed releases of 2017. Newsweek called Trip “a beautiful ode to dealing with grief and finally letting go of the past in order to move forward… with a mix of up and downtempo tracks and a plethora of guest appearances from artists like Swae Lee, Big Sean, Kurupt, Dr. Chill, Namiko Love, Mali Music and Brandy, Trip is an album that just about anyone who’s ever lost a loved one can relate to.”
Trip, a masterwork more than a decade in the making, took listeners through the unique odyssey of love and loss, heartbreak and discovery that Jhené endured over the previous decade, witnessed closely by her loyal fans. It was a tribute to the changes that rocked her life and career – the tragic loss of her brother to cancer in 2012, and her journey to try to manage her grief through relationships, substances and art. The album spun off a trio of top-selling hit singles through 2017-2018: the Top 10 double-platinum “Sativa” featuring Rae Sremmurd (over 166 million YouTube views); the Top 10 platinum “While We’re Young” (over 59 million combined YouTube views); and the RIAA gold “Never Call Me” featuring Kurupt.
Trip was introduced by a 23-minute short film which Jhené wrote and directed, with help from her friend, screenwriter Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip). The album’s success led to Jhené’s first 16-city headlining tour of North America in November-December 2017. It was her first major outing since 2016, when she first joined Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa on their High Road Summer Tour.
DREEMS hosted an event together with social media influencer, Icon Accidental, and students of the Parsons MFA program; Vera Blinova, Jihoon Kim, Ying Feng, and Zehua Wu.
DREEMS, a launchpad for rising designers, hosted an event with social media influencer and style icon, Lyn Slater, aka, Icon Accidental, and four emerging talents from the Parsons MFA Fashion Design and Society program on February 20th at DREEMS concept store in SoHo, New York City. The event was attended by more than 150 guests including the likes of designer Philip Lim and influencer Michelle Song. Design Studio 1: “Embodying Universal Bodies” was a design project that took place during the Fall Semester of the Parsons MFA Fashion Design & Society program. This 12-week design project urged young design students to actively utilize their skill sets and design approach for the betterment of marginalized populations within society, culture and the fashion industry. Students were paired up in 4 design teams respectively, focusing on the areas of Disability, Plus-Size, Transgender and Aging. Each design team was charged to find a muse/collaborator within the respected category to ensure primary research and a meaningful outcome.
MFA Fashion Design & Society students Vera Blinova, Jihoon Kim, Ying Feng, and Zehua Wu collectively aimed their efforts on the aspect of Aging. Through social media, they found Lyn Slater aka Icon Accidental and embarked on a 12 week collaboration, in which by the end, they had to present an 8-look collection, addressing the aspect of Aging. With the concept of Age Fluidity, the collection was created through a selection of Lyn Slater’s existing wardrobe, spanning various decades as a template of memory and nostalgia. These particular looks were then re-imagined through the notion of fabrics and threads going through wear and tear just as the aging body does. This resulted in the production of garments incorporating intricately crafted couture fabrics – reestablishing nostalgia and aging not as a retrospective lens but one of contemporary significance.
The not so accidental collaboration between Icon Accidental and design students proved to be a valuable design experience. The collection emphasizes the importance of Lyn Slater’s lived experience through various decades and the value of garments as memories and identifiers of our ageless, ever-developing identity. Living in a world of mass-production, this collection sequentially aims to address society’s unhealthy consumerist behavior towards the notion of ‘newness’ and ‘time’ and the value we collectively place into that. DREEMS, founded by Alise Trautmane-Uzuner and Sai Kong, has taken it upon itself to offer up-and-coming talent a platform, expertise, and guidance with the intention to disrupt the industry in its current state. The collaboration between DREEMS, Icon Accidental and these four promising students, is an authentic endeavor to reinforce innovation and rethinking within the fashion industry.
About DREEMS: DREEMS is the preeminent fashion launchpad for emerging designers that offers business development solutions including a luxury concept store in prime Soho, NYC, PR showroom, wholesale, branding, integrated communications, and production services. Founded in 2017 by Alise Trautmane-Uzuner and Sai Kong, DREEMS is located in the heart of New York’s SoHo neighborhood where they curate and develop the most innovative brands and minds in the industry.

Did you know that approximately one in four individuals suffer from a mental health issue? Although it can often feel like you’re alone in your struggles, roughly a quarter of the people you come into contact with each day will have experienced similar, which means it’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about.
Luckily, there are lots of ways you can deal with this, from medical intervention to a few simple lifestyle tips that can help you get on top of the way you’re feeling. Here are three you might want to try.
We understand that when you’re anxious, you often feel an urge to curl up in bed and hibernate for the day, but sometimes doing the opposite can be beneficial. Indeed, taking yourself down to the gym or going out for a walk or a run in your local park can be really helpful when anxiety strikes, as it not only gives you something else to focus on, but sends a dose of feel-good endorphins rushing around your body. This can alleviate feelings of worry and panic both short- and long-term (for those who exercise more regularly), which is why those in the know recommend a minimum of three to five 30-minute workout sessions a week for individuals who are affected.
When feelings of anxiety strike, one of the best ways to combat them is to give your mind something else to focus on, whether this is reading a book or planning what you’re going to have for dinner. Playing games can be particularly helpful. That’s because the experience is relatively immersive, especially when it’s online slots or some other form of interactive game. The extensive offerings from sites like Captain Spins are a good example, but if you do want to give this tip a go, we recommend shopping around to make sure you find the best offers out there. For example, the bonus from Captain Spins lives up to the brand name with a huge 260 bonus spins, meaning you won’t have to break the bank every time you desire to distract yourself.
Last but not least, it can be a good idea to try aromatherapy. While you might find the thought of burning candles or incense unlikely to help you, there is plenty of research to support the fact that certain scents seem to soothe and calm us. These include lavender, chamomile, and sandalwood, with aromatherapy and essential oils believed to activate certain sensory receptors in our brains that calm our nerves and can alleviate anxiety.
When it comes to managing anxiety disorders, every individual is different, and what works for one may not help another. This doesn’t mean you should become disheartened. Try different approaches, aim to identify triggers, and don’t be afraid to speak to a health professional if you feel like your anxiety is starting to negatively impact your life. Stay proactive, and you’ll undoubtedly find a way to make each day just a little bit easier than the one before.
