Happy August!

We love discovering interesting trends, insightful articles, things that make us smile, feel something inside and at times, ready for lunch at 10am. 

Here are a few of our favorites from this week:

There’s a lot of conversation around what self care is and is not. This video dives deeper into why you should always have a focus on yourself. 

On that same note, be wary of what you see on the internet and especially, beware of the trends you try from TikTok

However, there are some TikTok trends that are quite harmless and very humorous. I strongly encourage any of you with furry friends to have fun with this one

Does anyone else find themselves doing some extra shopping in the summer? Whether you  prefer expanding your wardrobe via the latest shop feature on Instagram or “old-fashioned” window shopping, try to opt for sustainable fashion lines. How cool are these hats?! They’re made out of mushroom leather! 

Feel like trying something new in the kitchen this weekend? Whether you’re vegan or not, we’re certain these bao buns will leave you craving for more delicious plant-based creations! 

If you’re not in the mood for buns, try making this for dinner - name a prettier pasta… I’ll wait.

Don’t forget to pair your pretty pasta with this gorgeous and refreshing cocktail.

If after all of that, you decide you want to get out of the house to discover something new - check out one of these bars in Seattle.

And lastly, this account is guaranteed to make anyone smile - a blast from the past too.
