Whether you live in a tiny apartment or a sprawling ranch-style home, chances are you don’t get to update your décor as frequently as you’d like. I know I’ve been stuck with the same furniture since my first apartment after college because hey, it still works. But even if you don’t have the budget to do a redecoration right now, there are still a lot of small, very easy things you can do to make your home feel fresh and impress guests.
1) Incorporate pops of color into your color scheme: I can’t get enough of these cobalt blue C.

This weekend, Coachella was in full swing, and the “it” girls who were at the fest, like Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev (above) were rocking gorgeous, California-cool looks the entire time.

Not only are we suffering from a serious case of wanderlust, but we’ve also got a touch of the winter blues. The only cure? Vacay! And whenever we’re planning a trip, the first place we consult is Jetsetter. You can’t beat their combination of gorgeous destinations and killer deals.

Each day this week, we’ll be showcasing one of their best mid-winter escape properties and making suggestions for what to pack. From exotic beaches to powdery slopes, there’s something for everyone. By Friday, you’ll be ready to hop on a plane. Today’s lust-worthy locale: Jamaica!
We’ve been dying to get to Jamaica for some one-on-one time with the island’s pristine beaches, delicious cuisine (jerk chicken!), and rich cultural heritage. Who doesn’t love a tropical hideaway that gives you seven-mile stretches of white sand and reggae tunes to relax to? There’s no better time to visit this Caribbean paradise than the frenzied winter months. The spot’s easy-going attitude and idyllic terrain will melt away stress in a matter of hours.
