    1. Do the relaxed vacation look with fun shoes like celebrities Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl

    Each of you should grab plain cotton button-down, long-sleeve shirts in your respective perfect blue hues. Those with very dark hair or very tanned and dark skin tones should go with lighter, brighter shades of blue. Those with blonde hair or fair skin look best in medium to navy shades of blue. Whoever loves their jeans the most should wear them, and your partner can wear nearly any color and style of pants they like since this color scheme is very versatile. Finish the look with matching sneakers in the same bright color.

      2. Take the best Christmas-morning photos with complimentary pajamas

      Just admit it: When you look at the sweet photos of actress Kristin Bell and her hubby Dax Shepard by the Christmas tree in their matching pajamas, you smile. How can you not? Recreate this joyful holiday romance in your own home by getting your own coordinating plaid or striped PJs. Rather than matching exactly, one of you can wear it in a green color while the other wears the same style in red. Now you’ve got the perfect outfits for your next pajama party too.

        3. Be the classic “fashion-fabulous” power couple in spring or summer with coordinating white bottoms

        First, ladies can wear any white skirt of your choice; we prefer the perfect pencil skirt that flatters your body type and flares in the right places when needed. Then top it with a white button-down shirt or any neutral-colored casual shirt and finish with white heels.

        For him, first, it’s important for men to protect any long-sleeved polo or dress shirt from sweat or deodorant stains by wearing the best undershirts for men that fit and feel like a breathable second skin. For example, you can find undershirt options that help wick moisture away to keep men feeling dry and cool while also staying in place all day. Then, he’ll add his best business-casual shirt and top it with a navy-blue or neutral-toned sports jacket or vest. Finish with white pants, and you’re ready to hit the town together like James Bond and his favorite supermodel.

          4. Rock the new “Grease Lightning” look together like Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik

          Ladies, plaid “jeggings” or skinny jeans are especially hot in patterns of red, white and black. Then pair them with your best-loved red shirt; the ’50s-style cut is optional. For him, it’s easy to match you as long as he sticks to white and black colors only in his complementary outfit. Of course, we love the final polish of a black leather jacket to bring out his bad-boy side.

            5. Sunbathe in matching surfboard beach shorts

            Bring fun fashion to the beach with matching shorts that look cute on her and handsome on him. Both pairs have sexy and casual black waistbands with a comfortable drawstring fit that flatters every waistline, mimicking the common style of men’s briefs. While the fabric patterns are the same, hers are short and foxy while his are knee-length trunks for full coverage while surfing. All she needs is a matching bikini top, and he can wear his go-to tank top when you two stroll down the boardwalk.

              6. Create custom-printed matching jerseys that make a clever sentence together

              Naturally, this idea is even more enjoyable when you both love the same sports team and get jerseys in your team colors. However, you can also just buy plain gray jersey shirts with black stripes, which look good on everyone. This alternative neutral color can also be a good compromise if you both like opposing sports teams too. Bring your shirts to a custom-printing T-shirt shop, and one of you should start the sentence of your choice on your shirt, and it will end on your partner’s shirt. A favorite for spouses is:

              Him: “I stole her heart … ”

              Her: ” … so I’m stealing his last name.”

                7. Dress as the dynamic aviator duo

                Ever since the press caught Eleanor Calder and Louis Tomlinson from the band One Direction in these complementary casual outfits, we’ve fallen in love with this carefree-chic look that shows just how cute you and your partner can be together without overdoing it.

                Start by both of you putting on a pair of jeans, but pick different colors in medium-to-dark shades of blue, black, or even brown. Then for men, slip on a Raglan T-shirt with mid-length sleeves or any other T-shirt that shows off your pecs that’s in either white, blue, gray or beige. Ladies, slip on a button-down shirt that’s sleeveless or short-sleeved in any color that’s not neutral, a shade slightly brighter than your mate’s shirt. Finish it off with matching aviator sunglasses, and you’re ready to walk through the park with Starbuck’s drinks in hand.

                Now that you’re both cleverly coordinated with each other, you know what time it is. Pull out your smartphone and take those romantic couple selfies! You can also go old-school style and jump in a photo booth together because, after all, being in love makes everything more fun.

                11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

                11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

                Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

                Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

                1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

                Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

                2. Stress Relief

                Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

                3. Improved Sleep

                Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

                4. Appetite Control

                Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

                5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

                When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

                6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

                Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

                7. Mosquito Repellant

                Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

                8. Pain Relief

                While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

                9. The New Anti-Viral

                Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

                10. Improved Cognitive Function

                Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

                11. Money Saving

                With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
