My Friday Five: On “New” Coke Zero, Durham Bulls & Golf Experiences

1. The Coke Zero Sugar Taste Test

Is it "New Coke" all over again? Coca-Cola announced in July that it would rebrand Coke Zero to Coke Zero Sugar and change its formula as well. This sent the Internet into a frenzy, with tons of people voicing their concerns about the switch. As an avid Coke Zero - and Coca-Cola product - drinker myself, I was very concerned that the great taste of Coke Zero was soon going to be destroyed. Coke Zero Sugar hit the shelves earlier this month and I decided to give it a try despite my concerns.

Tuft & Needle “&Pillow”: As Good As Advertised?

Did you know that you should change your pillow every one to two years? At least that's what the National Sleep Foundation recommends. There are several reasons why. Chiefly, pillows collect hair, body oils and dead skin cells, which can cause them to become smelly and/or attract allergens such as dust mites, according to the National Sleep Foundation.

Back in June, I decided to go on the hunt for a new pillow. I started having some neck pain each morning I woke up and the pillow was beginning to lose its fluffiness. After a lengthy search, I turned to Tuft & Needle.
