Take 5: Don't Ghost on Your Date—This App Will Do It for You
Happy Wednesday! Welcome back to our Take 5 column, where we invite you to take a hump-day break with the week’s most revitalizing lifestyle stories. Ready to take a breather?
Take 1: If you're trying to say "I'm not interested"
A new app called Ghostbot will ward off your unwanted suitors via a series of preapproved, unenthusiastic text messages, such as "Sorry, just me and [pizza emoji] tonight" and "I just have no time right now." Because why not subcontract your awkward Tinder conversations to the SmarterChild of the new millennium?
Take 2: If you're going on a Eurotrip this summer
This new collapsible, hard-shell suitcase from Néit is the first of its kind, and it's a game changer for the avid world traveler. Perfect for small, cramped hotel rooms with minimal storage space, this suitcase started as a Kickstarter campaign in January 2016. The product has since amassed endorsements from the likes of Travel & Leisure, Fast Company, and Wired. Order yours here.
Take 3: If you haven't been to a concert in ages
Ticketmaster's recent legal settlement is giving all customers free ticket vouchers—assuming you purchased a ticket from the company between October 1999 and February 2013. While the selection is, for lack of a better term, awful, our friends over at The Verge have aggregated the best options in each city. Log into your Ticketmaster account to see what's available.
Take 4: If your complexion has always been described as "fair"
Take 5: If you just got engaged (congrats!)
This new roundup from InStyle takes wedding inspiration to a whole new level. These six lucky celebrities tied the knot in actual castles, with plenty of pictures to prove it. Nothing like a fairy-tale wedding IRL to jog your imagination.
