With temperatures cooling, now is the perfect time to start planning your winter getaways. UNIQLO, a Japanese clothing manufacturer offers Heattech clothing, a comfortable and easily packable solution to keep you toasty all winter long.

 

UNIQLO’s Heattech line comes in men’s, women’s and children’s styles and includes more than one hundred products. The leggings, tights and socks keep lower extremities warm while slips, tank tops, turtlenecks and t-shirts provide a cozy layer on top. The line boasts anti-odor, anti-static and anti-deformation characteristics; they stand up to repeated washings and do not wrinkle easily.

 

Similar to the store’s other products, Heattech is made from soft, comfortable fabric and comes in a variety of colors and cuts. The fabric gets its luxuriously smooth texture from the addition of camellia oil, a skin-safe oil often used in cosmetics.

 

Although Heattech does not retain warmth as well as sports brand clothing, like Under Armor, it is stylish enough to wear on and off the ski slopes. The clothing is heat-retentive — it traps body heat to keep you warm — and it takes a few minutes to warm up to each new piece of clothing.

 

UNIQLO delivers a cozy array of warm clothing and accessories for a reasonable price. Shirts and leg warmers start at $12.90, while leggings or tights are $14.90. At these prices, it makes sense to stock up and stay toasty all winter.

 

Pair Heattech with UNIQLO’s Ultra Light Down collection for chilly climates. This combination of sleek, lightweight outerwear and soft Heattech layers will keep you comfortably warm on your next winter excursion without filling your suitcase.

Bar de Pla, Barcelona, Spain

When it comes to local, authentic tapas bars in the capital of Catalonia, they can be considered a dime a dozen. There are loads of options to choose from, so many so the average visitor to Barcelona can be completely confused as to where to even begin a search for pan con tomate. But one unsuspecting gem in the trendy neighborhood of El Born features a no-fuss, no-nonsense approach to traditional Spanish tapas, adding an extra touch of authenticity with the homemade cava.

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.
