Post-COVID Travel Boom Visits Rural America

YourUpdateTV

Visit North Carolina has launched Dream Big in Small Town NC, an initiative to boost economic recovery by attracting travelers and potential workforce to small towns in 16 counties facing population loss. Starting with a sweepstakes promotion and a satellite media tour in Haywood County, the campaign showcases natural beauty and small-town charm in places with special challenges resulting from the pandemic. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/xcNldQZAVdk Created by the General Assembly as the Rural Tourism Recovery Pilot Program, Dream Big capitalizes on travelers’ interest in exploring small towns by drawing attention to the people, places and businesses in three distinct regions designated as the Scenic Mountains, the Northeast Lakes & Rivers, and the Inner Banks. As a unit of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, Visit NC is coordinating the program with the N.C. Department of Commerce and other private and public entities involved in growing the state’s first-in-talent workforce. “Dream Big is a natural extension of Visit NC’s economic development role as the state’s tourism marketing organization,” said Wit Tuttell, Visit NC’s executive director. “Our efforts center on showcasing local landmarks, memorable experiences, distinctive lodging, dining and shopping with the goal of an economic infusion from visitor spending. Dream Big takes the mission further by calling attention to the allure of living and working in charismatic places whose appeal is rooted in character and authenticity.” Funded with $1.5 million from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the pilot program designates Graham, Haywood, Madison, Mitchell and Yancey counties in the Scenic Mountains; Edgecombe, Halifax, Vance and Warren in the Northeast Lakes & Rivers; and Chowan, Gates, Hertford, Martin, Perquimans, Tyrrell and Washington in the Inner Banks. Dream Big also has a dedicated presence on VisitNC.com, complete with links for job postings, as well as program partner Airbnb’s website. The Scenic Mountains is the first region to take the spotlight. During the satellite tour in Waynesville, representatives from national, regional and in-state media outlets joined the virtual tour and Q&A session. The launch also features a sweepstakes with a prize package that includes: A $1,000 Airbnb stay voucher to experience Small Town NC life. A $500 VISA gift card to help with travel expenses by plane, train or automobile A choice of gift cards for dining, recreation and shopping in the Scenic Mountain destinations. Similar promotions and satellite media tours are planned for the program’s launch in Northeast Lakes & Rivers this summer and in the Inner Banks in the fall. According to a recent report from Destination Analysts, 28.4 percent of people surveyed plan to visit small towns or rural attractions this travel season. Increased demand is reflected in the doubling of short-term rentals available outside of North Carolina’s urban counties since the pandemic began. For 2021, Airbnb reports a 128 percent increase in nights booked in rural areas compared with 2019. For the same period, nights booked for rural stays of more than four weeks grew 160 percent, which supports Dream Big’s promise to engage visitors for more than a getaway. Tuttell also noted findings from a poll by booking.com that 58 percent of travelers said it’s important for their trip be beneficial to the destination's local community. Twenty-nine percent said they would research how their tourism spending would affect or improve local communities. Beyond exposure from the satellite tour, Dream Big will reach the traveling public through a presence on VisitNC.com and posts on @VisitNC’s social media channels. A media influencer campaign will bring selected tastemakers to the destinations to engage their followers in the local culture and lifestyle appeal for people interested in a change of scenery. Airbnb, which will also promote the campaign on its website and social media channels, will use its inventory of short-term rental properties to host the media visits. About Visit North Carolina: Visit North Carolina is part of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina. Established in 2014, the EDPNC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that oversees the state's efforts in business and job recruitment and retention, international trade, and tourism, film and sports development.

Huguette Marcelle Clark: A Portrait of the Artist -- First Exhibition of Famed Heiress’ Paintings in Over 90 Years Now at Santa Barbara Historical Museum

Santa Barbara Historical Museum

Stories about copper heiress Huguette Clark (1906–2011) have captivated the news media and public. Though she stayed out of the public eye in her later years, she was a talented artist who held exhibitions of her paintings in both New York and Paris as a young woman. Clark’s artwork is now on view to the public for the first time since 1931 at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, presented in collaboration with the Bellosguardo Foundation. “Huguette Marcelle Clark: A Portrait of the Artist” is on exhibit through June 12, 2022. (Note: Huguette is pronounced hyoo-GETT.) Never before publicly seen images from Clark’s recently rediscovered personal photo album and ephemera from her scrapbooks are also displayed, giving glimpses of her at work in her art studio and from her private life at her Bellosguardo estate and elsewhere in Santa Barbara from the 1910s through the 1940s. For more information, visit www.sbhistorical.org. “We wanted to show the breadth of Huguette Clark’s talent,” said Dacia Harwood, director of the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. “She lived a fascinating life, and we’ve learned more about her time in our community while preparing this exhibition.” Clark has been the subject of extensive media coverage and several books, including New York Times bestselling “Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune” by Bill Dedman. Clark painted throughout her time in Santa Barbara, first at Meridian Studios on East De la Guerra Street (located next to the current site of the Historical Museum) from 1933 to 1935 while the Bellosguardo estate was being built, and then in her studio in the estate. As a younger woman Clark evidenced a wide-ranging interest in the arts as a painter, musician, and collector of beauty: decorative and fine art, costumes, exquisitely fashioned dolls, and fine jewels. Trained by renowned portraitist Tadeusz (Tadé) Styka [pronounced Taa-DEY-uw-sh (Tejd) STY-ka], she built a deep body of work throughout her long life. The exhibition presents self-portraits, portraits, a still life, and images of a Japanese geisha, a ballerina, and a Spanish dancer, among others. Styka’s portrait of Clark is also on view. As the residual beneficiary of Clark’s estate, the Bellosguardo Foundation received an extensive collection of her paintings. Several of the works selected, all oils, were conserved in anticipation of the exhibition. The Foundation has also shared a selection of personal items from her photo albums and scrapbooks which illustrate her life from her childhood and early life in Santa Barbara. The 23-acre oceanfront estate Bellosguardo was redesigned and rebuilt after the 1925 earthquake by Anna Clark, widow of Senator William Andrews Clark, and then passed to Huguette. At one time, Senator Clark was the second richest man in America. Following her death in 2011 at age 104, the property was bequeathed to the Bellosguardo Foundation with the goal of transforming it into a focal point for art and culture in Santa Barbara and beyond. Visit www.bellosguardo.org. The Santa Barbara Historical Museum is located in downtown Santa Barbara at 136 East de la Guerra Street. Admission is free. Hours are currently Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. and Thursdays from noon to 7 p.m. Visit www.sbhistorical.org. The Museum’s mission is to create meaningful connections to Santa Barbara history. The signature installation, The Story of Santa Barbara, traces our community’s story from the Chumash to the mid 20th century. Accessible and diverse community programming along with rotating exhibitions feature dynamic local traditions, art, and historical events. Visitors also experience the Edward Borein Gallery, the Gledhill Research Library, and two historic adobes. Visit www.sbhistorical.org. Contact Details Julia McHugh +1 805-569-3303 julia@juliapr.com

UK viewers average over 4 hours of TV time per person a day UK produced TV shows attract global interest on multiple platforms Gala Bingo presents interesting facts around UK TV shows and series The amount of TV shows that are produced in the UK, streamed globally, are reaching all-time highs around the world. Nowadays, there are even series that compete with the classics from the golden age of TV and the likes of Sopranos, 24 and OZ. Series like Downton Abby and Peaky Blinders (originally BBC) are already considered modern classics, and it was reported that Amazon and Netflix doubled their spending on production costs for UK series between 2017-2018. Gala Bingo has recently released a handful of blog posts that take a closer look at the biggest wins in game shows, what the favorite TV moments were during 2021 and in their latest post, a TV show quiz where you try to guess the programme and see just how much of a binger you really are. David Winter, Marketing Manager of Gala Bingo, explains that “ the quiz is more of a tribute, rather than a self-diagnostic tool, to all the great shows that we have seen over the last few years, especially for the shows produced in the UK. We truly embrace and appreciate the technological steps that we have been blessed with in the entertainment industry over the last few years, bringing us our favorite pastime entertainment through streaming and on-demand solutions. ” The fight for the market share of subscribers to streaming services was more of an US-centric battle just a few years back, with viewers in the rest of the world having to wait for releases of movies and TV shows in their respective regions. This is not the case anymore and it is safe to assume that most households have subscriptions not just to Netflix, which dominated the market for years, but now also are signed up for several other local or national services from Sky to Prime TV, even Disney Plus to Apple TV.

ReadyWise Partners with Rising Female Star Driving for the National Pediatric Center

ReadyWise, Inc.

ReadyWise, the freeze-dried and dehydrated emergency food and simple soups and snacks leader, has signed a two-year sponsorship contract with seventeen-year-old sprint car racer, Gray Leadbetter. Earlier this year, Leadbetter teamed up with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation, which funds research to eliminate childhood cancer and has committed to donating 10% of sponsorship dollars to the organization. This marks ReadyWise's first time entering as a sponsor in the sport of motor racing and is the perfect partnership showcasing Grey and ReadyWise's similar values as innovative trailblazers in their industry. "We are proud to be partnering with this young female superstar," says ReadyWise CEO Morten Steen-Jorgensen. "It's exciting to support Gray's talent while spreading the ReadyWise brand. We are proud that she has chosen to help the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation through her success." At just 17, Leadbetter shatters the stereotype of drivers who are typically male and brimming with bravado. With her quiet demeanor, slight build, and long hair, one could easily mistake her for an English major or an artist. But on the track, she's a fierce competitor. Leadbetter stepped up into sprint cars after competing in motocross, karting, rallycross, Championship Off-Road, midgets, and mini-sprints in 2021. With up to 900 horsepower, sprint cars are the winged beasts of the motorsports world, a world that men have dominated until now. With ReadyWise sponsorship, Leadbetter will compete in more than 20 sprint car races this year and run a full schedule in the Championship Off-Road series in the Midwest. Leadbetter will be wearing the ReadyWise name at her races, showcasing both the Emergency and Simple Kitchen Everyday snacks line. ReadyWise's Emergency line comes with products that have up to 25 years of shelf life for life's big and small emergencies for peace of mind tomorrow. ReadyWise's Simple Kitchen line is their most innovative yet, with a full line of freeze-dried snack and soups. These products are great for every day without worrying about expiration dates. The line features conventional and organic freeze-dried fruits, seasoned veggies, soups, and sweet treats. ReadyWise wants to offer Gray's supporters a chance to try its products with a 10% discount on their first order (code: GRAY10 ). Some exclusions may apply.

That’s why she wants to help women feel like the best version of themselves. She admits to knowing the feeling, “I’m the mom of two boys that bring me so much happiness. However, sometimes I want to get dressed up and do a day with my girls.” This Mother’s Day, she recommends finding cute and fashionable dresses for every woman on your list, adding, “Now that it’s getting warmer, I can’t wait to put on a dress.

And, for curls that transform through heat, color, protective styling and more, the DevaCurl® CurlBond™ product line allows you to Live Your Curls without the fear of damage in just one wash.” One product she recommends, the DevaCurl CurlBond Mask, includes DevaCurl’s Patented CurlBond Complex, which is dermatologist co-developed, backed by science and stylist approved. It repairs broken bonds & recoils curls from the inside-out, helping curls to flex through heat, color, detangling, and everything in between with improved strength. The brand attracts conscious consumers and moms, because all the DevaCurl CurlBond products are formulated with everything curls love and nothing they don’t! They are vegan, cruelty-free, and made without SLS/SLES sulfates, silicones, parabens, and gluten. For more information, visit Devacurl.com.

Popular Gifting Trends for Mother's Day

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/SdtdOyh8kmE Sunday, May 8 th is Mother’s Day, the perfect time to honor all the moms in your life. According to the National Retail Federation, shoppers planned on spending about $220 on Mother’s Day gifts in 2021. That number is expected to go up this year, due in part to limited COVID restrictions, various consumer deals, and the popularity of online shopping—including free shipping and easy return policies. Online searches have determined a few of this year’s biggest Mother’s Day gifting trends. As expected, flowers, jewelry, and sweets topped the list. However, restaurant-related searches and electronics are seeing record levels of spending this year. A recent Microsoft survey discovered more than 20% of mothers said they would like a spa visit. This is aligned with another shopping trend, which is shopping and supporting local businesses. Industry insiders say Mother’s Day is one of the biggest retail holidays of the year and expect to see more than $25 billion in spending in 2022. Fister has some gifting tips to help make mom’s heart melt this upcoming Mother’s Day. SKIN IS IN: Mother’s Day is less than a week away and Fister say’s it’s always a good idea to think outside of the box. Skincare is one of the first things that comes to her mind for this year’s Mother’s Day. The Beauty Expert says, “I’m really loving the high-performance Korean skincare brand, Sulwhasoo,” pointing out their Bestsellers Trial Kit, which features a few favorites, including their #1 selling First Care Activating Serum. It’s a radiance enhancing, anti-aging serum that also helps boost the absorption of following skincare products used on top.” The First Care Radiance Set is a limited edition 4-piece set of bestsellers that either clears impurities, amplifies hydration, or smooths one’s complexion for an everlasting glow. Finally, Fister says the Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream Set is a luxury gift set featuring new and improved silky-soft, anti-aging Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream. For more information, go to US.Sulwhasoo.com. Direct link: Bestsellers Trial Kit: https://us.sulwhasoo.com/collections/korean-skin-care-sets/products/bestsellers-trial-kit-1 First Care Radiance Set: https://us.sulwhasoo.com/collections/korean-skin-care-sets/products/first-care-radiance-set Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream Set: https://us.sulwhasoo.com/collections/korean-skin-care-sets/products/concentrated-ginseng-renewing-cream-set Social media handles: Facebook: @ sulwhasoo.us Instagram: @ Sulwhasoo.us PRIORITIZE HEALTH & WELL-BEING: Health and well-being have really become a priority over the past two years. The beauty and lifestyle expert says, “Now’s the time to help moms live happier and healthier lives.” As a mom, Fister points out that finding balance is incredibly important. This includes everyday feelings of being run down, stressed out, or in need of a little R&R. Fister’s view on self-care is loud and clear, “I’m loving The Good Patch.” This brand makes plant-powered wearable wellness patches for life’s everyday struggles, such as sleep and stress. Fister highlights that the patches are easy to use. The consumer just peels & sticks the patch to their wrist (or any venous area). The B12 Awake patch gives a user’s day a boost. It’s made with caffeine, green tea, and vitamin B12. Perfect for getting through that afternoon slump. The Relax patch is perfect for unwinding and decompressing on stressful days. It’s made with ashwagandha, passionflower, and rhodiola. “Perfect for dealing with the “joys” of parenting,” Fister jokes. The Dream patch is for getting some quality sleep. It’s made with 10mg melatonin, valerian root, and hops. This is ideal for travel, red-eyes, or even just a good nap. Fister says The Good Patches can be worn all day, delivering a sustained release of ingredients over 8-12 hours. They are available at Target, ULTA, and CVS.

Fister says it will definitely be noticeable this Mother’s Day, adding, “Who doesn’t love stylish leggings, sweatpants, and loungewear? They’ve become staples to our wardrobes… have they not, ladies?!? This year, she says a fun idea is for moms to coordinate with their mini, otherwise known as their daughter. “A brand I love is Spiritual Gangster,” says Fister, adding, “This brand is my go-to for leggings, soft fleece sweats, and fun graphic styles all rooted in optimism which I think we can all use more of right now. They also have a fantastic Mini Me Collection.” The beauty and lifestyle expert says the feminine floral active set has a matching girls legging that are both made from eco-conscious performance fabric— a super soft blend of recycled fibers and cooling yarns. Fister points out, “I also love the girl’s pink sweats! Made to match the women’s style —the girl’s Bridget raglan pull-over sweatshirt made in soft and cozy cotton terry pairs perfectly with the matching sweat pant. It’s a pretty in pink moment moms and daughters will both love.” For more information, go to SpiritualGangster.com Direct link: https://spiritualgangster.com/collections/mini-me-kids Social media handles: Facebook: @ SPIRITUALGANG Instagram: @ SPIRITUALGANGSTER Pinterest: @SPIRITUALGANGSTERLOVE STAY ON TREND: Fister says this year’s Mother’s Day gifting ideas even includes a new fashion trend. “This year, it’s really all about embracing vibrancy and joy—bold prints, micro-textures, and florals. It’s the season for moms to look and feel fabulous,” Fister adds, “From mothers and daughters to sisters and friends, Ramy Brook is a woman-owned business with styles that can be worn by women of all ages.” Ramy’s signature use of silk fabrics, lively colors, and sophisticated silhouettes immediately caught Fister’s eye. She is impressed by the collections intent to be a day-to-night solution in a woman’s wardrobe. She continues, “Another thing that means so much to me, is how the brand’s vision is for women to feel beautiful and confident—knowing they’re sexy, wearing something special, and looking their absolute best. Ramy Brook has timeless styles that truly transcend generations.” For more information, go to RamyBrook.com.
