tonight's pick-me-ups

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

🙌 Boosting work place morale. Create a more positive and productive work space by helping to raise your co-worker's confidence. Celebrate successes, learn something new together, or even connect with them about non-work related topics.

🛋️ Creating a cozy home on a budget. Want to design a space that feels like a warm hug without breaking the bank?
It all comes down to texture, lighting, and color. Add some chunky knits, string lights, and a few candles to instantly transform any space.

🗳️ Checking in on our right to vote. The 2020 elections are closer than you think and now is the time to start thinking about your general elections picks.
Find out your deadline for voter registration with this state-by-state guide.

🍨 Getting the scoop. Halo Top is back at it with seven (!!) keto friendly flavors, including Jelly Donut and Caramel Butter Pecan. With net carbs ranging from 5 to 10 grams, this low cal treat is perfect for guilt-free late night snacking.

bedtime stories

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

 SPORTS  For when the tide is high, but I'm holding on ~ Surfs up at the Tokyo Olympics, where women's surfing will be debuted, finally giving these gifted athletes the recognition they deserve. "While surfing has been a part of the American landscape for nearly 100 years, the spotlight has largely been devoid of women who surf. Its inclusion in the Olympics serves as the culmination of years of fighting for equality. The fight for equality is perhaps best reflected in the number of women now participating in the sport. According to the WSL, there was a 31 percent jump in women’s qualifying series members from 2014 to 2019. From 2014 to present, that number leaped by 200 percent. [Carissa] Moore is quick to tip her hat to Moller, Miley-Dyer and others. 'We wouldn’t be where we are today without the women who came before me,' she says. 'All their effort has given us a platform to shine.'"

 WELLNESS  For when you're looking for therapy, but get bangs instead ~ Hair has always been a way for women to express themselves. A new haircut can be the perfect way to show off a new style, but it can also be an emotional distress signal. "Regardless of the exact origins, 'getting bangs' as a shorthand for 'needing therapy' is exemplary of the paradoxical way women so often find themselves talking about themselves and one other online. Cutting our bangs is taking action, a way of being in control of stress. But that would also be a silly thing to believe, which is where reflexive self-deprecation comes in ... Getting bangs is much easier (and cheaper) than going to therapy. That’s funny! And sad. Yet getting bangs also does nothing that therapy does. The big joke of bangs is that we’re unhappy enough to get them, and the big crime is that everyone has to see."

 CULTURE  For when you've been Gooped ~ We caved and watched Gwyneth Paltrow's (controversial) new Netflix show The Goop Lab. As this piece sums it up, the worst thing about the show is how reasonable it seems. "It may be either a relief or a disappointment to learn that The Goop Lab feels like it comes from a different, much tamer (and less product-led) point of view than the Goop brand overall. And that’s actually the biggest problem with The Goop Lab: There really isn’t one. The recommendations dispensed are largely reasonable, if a bit unorthodox when compared to traditional medicine — microdosing mushrooms to help with PTSD, psychic readings, looking at your own vagina, jumping into cold water to keep yourself feeling young ... The Goop Lab is much more innocent and far harder to hate than the e-commerce empire that spawned it. So it acts as a form of brand rehab for Goop and Paltrow in general — but there’s no indication that the underlying Goop ethos has actually changed."

 SELF  For when it's never too late to start something new ~ Many of us have that one thing we wished we've stuck with as a child. Maybe it was piano lessons, tennis, or even ballet — whatever it was for you, there's always time to start again! "I quit Marjorie’s at 12, when the presumably more mature pleasures of junior high school beckoned (I was wrong, obviously; there were no pleasures, only pain), and I don’t remember missing it, but it had left its mark: The thought of a dance class did not fill me with despair or fury the way a Pilates class or the contemplation of a gym membership would have. Plus, I enjoyed dancing at parties ... And there is this: Almost from the start I saw that ballet would fulfill a longing I’d had as far back as I could remember."

With the advent of dry shampoos, you can spray a little on to make your hair look fresh-washed when you don’t have time for washing and blow-drying. If you’re out of dry shampoo, try some hand sanitizer. Simply squeeze a bit out onto your fingertips and massage lightly into your roots, and your hair will look just as good.
