C2 succeeded at an impressive undertaking: developing a line of activewear that keeps you comfortable outdoors no matter the weather.


Among their many great products, all of which are made in the United States, the women’s Ultimate Base T offers a fantastic t-shirt that performs well in a variety of settings. The shirt, designed in the popular cap sleeve style, appears straightforward, but is actually extremely well constructed and thought out.


The shirt will likely become your staple workout shirt, whether you choose indoor or outdoor settings. It’s also great as a base layer, and can be paired with arm warmers during transitional times. The shirt is made of lightweight wool in its light blue style, and a synthetic material in black. Both versions wick moisture, regulate temperature and breathe well, all while looking great.


The only drawback to the shirt is the cut of the neck hole, which comes up fairly high on the neck. It’s not the most flattering cut, though it does help with modesty concerns. Still, it makes the shirt look more like a surfer’s rash guard, and could probably be cut just a little lower for a slightly more flattering appearance while still providing ample coverage.

How to Eat Alone Without Feeling Awkward

It’s 2019 and doing things alone is empowering. Gone are the days when treating yourself to a movie or dinner was looked at as strange or unusual. People are doing things for themselves and not waiting for others to be available. Hop on this train of independence and you’ll be better for it. It’s weird and awkward at first, but so are most things until you decide to dive in head first. After a few times, you’ll look forward to those meals alone. Until then, here are some tips to ease the process.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific.
