A March Letter From the Apartment Therapy Editor: On the JOWSRB
I decided to spend the month of February overhauling my little bathroom. It started because I spent the past six months or so really wanting a $39 shower curtain. I kept the shopping page open on my iPhone windows and showed it to my coworkers every couple of weeks (job perk). I’m coining this phenomenon the JOWSRB—joy of wanting something really badly.

How to Set Up Your Sleep Space When You’re a Night Owl
Good sleep is hard to come by. Most of us don’t get enough of it, and even when we do it’s not always high-quality, be it because of environmental factors (sound, light, temperature) or our temperamental body clocks.

But no one wants to bust up a good party!
