tonight's pick-me-ups

Things we're doing to unwind and get cozy before bed tonight: 

🛁 Upgrading our bathleisuring. Enjoy your #SelfcareSunday soak in your "adult" bathroom, complete with glass jars to corral your cotton balls and only the fluffiest towels that feel like you're at the spa.

💅 Buffing it. If you don't have the patience to sit through a full manicure (like us),
the 5-step *no-polish* manicure is the low-maintenance alternative to keeping the cuticles tidy and nails looking fresh.

🍪 Anxiety baking
copycat Levain Bakery cookies. Forget waiting in line and treat yourself to the giant cloud of cookie in the comfort of your own home. Btw the secret ingredient: cake flour.

💻 Feeling February. Love is in the air and
these free, downloadable tech backgrounds have plenty of inspo to love yourself and make the most of this short month.

*BONUS REC: Meet the last skincare routine you’ll ever need. Posey uses AI to curate and deliver a personalized, daily skincare regimen to bring your best face forward everyday. 🧴

bedtime stories

Reads when you're up late anyway. Here are tonight's round-up for every occasion:

 CULTURE 
For when the best part of the Super Bowl isn't football ~ Or even the ads (there we said it). This is how the Puppy Bowl became a cultural staple. "During a meeting, a suggestion was made that the best defense against the programming juggernaut would be to 'point a camera at puppies' on a football field, in a sort of dog version of the televised burning Yule Log that airs every holiday season. Margo Kent, the executive producer for Puppy Bowl I, remembers that 'It was always a joke: How do you counter the Super Bowl? Let's just put a box of puppies up there and call it a day. It's not worth trying to go against the Super Bowl.' But that joking suggestion found an audience: Puppy Bowl I, filmed in Silver Spring, Maryland, drew 5.8 million viewers across its 12-hour broadcast, and an annual tradition was born."

 SELF  For when you'd rather do anything else ~ Habits are hard enough to form, even when they're suppose to be fun. “I think it’s hard for everybody to fit new things into their lives, because it’s a zero-sum game, where in order to create time for a new activity, you have to take that time away from doing something else. Most people are already living a pretty precarious balance between work, family, and other responsibilities ... Still, it’s not impossible — we all know busy people who regularly find time to loom rugs or propagate plants or join their bowling league, or whatever. There are two main criteria we should use to evaluate any prospective new hobby’s viability in our own lives: (1) Is it easy?, and (2) is it enjoyable?"

 WELLNESS  For when right now is probably not the best time to start a new series ~ The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 3 can wait. Meanwhile, you can practice more mindfulness to make good decisions all week. "Mindfulness trains us in how to listen to our emotions and our bodies: How does it feel in my body when I imagine making this decision? Do I feel calm and at ease? Is there a sense of relief? A sense of alignment? As we practice mindfulness in low-stakes situations (e.g., 'Should I eat this for lunch?'), we deepen the feedback loop between body and brain. The more you practice, the stronger the feedback loop and the faster you can access it."

 SLEEP  For when you're tired AF ~ Samesies. The only explanation needed is what kind of tired are you exactly? "We’ve become a little bit lazy around sleep. Good sleep hygiene begins hours before you actually go to bed. It takes discipline to power down at the end of the day, turn off the TV and the computer, and cut back on external light, noise and stimulus. If you’re not able to do all that (because, come on) [try] at least wearing blue-light-blocking glasses, dimming the lights, and not eating or exercising within two to three hours of bedtime."

Last week we asked what's stressing you out right now? Whatever is weighing on your mind lately, we're sending over all the good vibes and virtual hugs your way. Here are a few of our favorite responses:

🤗 "Work has been really crazy - working long days which makes for short evenings for me! I have a side hustle that I LOVE so much and have a long to-do list of things to be accomplished - so that's stressor #2." ~ Emily M.

🤗 "Navigating the metro in Barcelona! Here for the semester and praying I figure it out soon!" ~ Daisy P.

🤗 "Figuring out what my next big move is. Life, home, love, everything." ~ Danielle M.

This week we want to know: How do you usually commute or get around? 🚗
WALK | DRIVE | RIDESHARE | TRAIN/BUS | BIKE/SCOOTER |
