The D’Fluff Shaving Cream ($9.95 for 2.5 ounces – carry-on friendly; or $16.95 for 5.2 ounces) contain fresh strawberries, egg whites and syrup, whisked together with Fair Trade cocoa butter, leaving skin silky smooth.

Granny Takes A Dip Bath Bomb ($6.95 per bomb) will leave your bathtub looking psychedelic, with swirls of colors. Spicy and citrusy in scent, the vegan bath bomb enriches water with lemon oil, ginger and pepper. It uplifts, stimulates and warms.

Cartoon Network Hotel Opens in Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Lovers of all things cartoon have the opportunity to stay in a hotel just as crazy about the drawn world as they are.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Avoid the Crowds with a Second-City Honeymoon

Second-city travel is one of the hottest trends of 2020. It involves avoiding the over-crowded, over-touristed cities that are historically top travel destinations and visiting nearby, lesser-known destinations instead. Travelers are learning that, while well-known destinations are popular for a reason, less-popular cities also have plenty to offer with fewer crowds and cheaper costs.
