"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can’t get rid of. You know whatever you do, they’ll still be there."

~ Amy Li
ready to wind down

Recs for your rest and relaxation:

💬 Feeling iffy. 'Iffirmations' are an alternative to affirmations when merely saying the words don't ease the Sunday Scaries. Ask yourself 'what if?' to break through the mental block and open up more possibilities.

🦁 Channeling our inner Leo. 'Tis the season to be bold and have it all –
from what to read, watch, wear, and do. So make plans in your best main character outfit and pick up a copy of Rachel Yoder's Nightbitch.

🧴 Slathering on SPF and then some. August is almost as unforgiving as July when it comes to bringing the heat. Apply sunscreen in a breeze with
spray options, setting not sweating, and keeping after-sun care just in case.

💸 Treating ourselves wisely. Sure the money will come back, but let's enjoy ourselves without more worry.
Learning your financial personality type can help to take charge of your money habits.

🧀 Snacking day and night. Life is too short to mindlessly munch on cheese and crackers for the millionth time, unless it's homemade.
Elevate every snacktime with recipes from grilled cheese crostinis to roasted veggie chips.

P.S. In other foodie news,
Milk Bar is junk food now and Fidough is so cute we could eat it 🐶🍞

This week we want to know: How do you recover from burnout? For one of us, it's by setting a daily OOO and having something personal to look forward to each night. The other by having a designated "lazy day," usually spent in bed with full permission to be productively unproductive. Anything goes, so message us and we'll feature some of the responses! 💌
