Living in a one-bedroom apartment in Raleigh, NC at The Trestles can be a wonderful experience. After all, there are a lot of reasons why living alone is so great.

  • Decorate exactly how you want to decorate. Who cares if it is a little out of the ordinary as long as you love it.
  • Clean as you would like, or be as messy as you would like (within reason).
  • The entire bed is yours, so you can sleep smack dab in the middle of it.
  • Use your space for hobbies and passions without feeling guilty. After all, there’s no need to apologize for your hobby taking over the living room when you’re the only one who calls the space home.
  • Living alone can be a great way to embrace an active social life. For instance, if you have a roommate, you might be tempted to stay home and hang out with him or her rather than hitting the town.

Instead get out and enjoy all that sunshine by using these simple beauty tips to help keep you looking and feeling fresh:

  • Everyone knows aloe is a “must have” for a sunburn. Try freezing aloe for even more cool soothing relief.
  • Always keep a couple colorful silk scarves on hand for those days when heat and humidity take a toil on your hair.
  • Pick up a pack of oil blotting rice paper sheets to soak up excess facial oil and perspiration.
  • Get rid of those unsightly underarm sweat stains by spraying with lemon juice right before washing.
  • Control summertime frizzies with an old toothbrush. Spray with the styling product of your choice then gently brush the length of the strand.
  • Coloring your hair isn’t cheap. Always use a conditioner with SPF to keep your color from fading.
  • Replace heavy powder blush with a tinted creme blush during the summer months.
