How was your week? I'm getting back into a positive frame of mind and checking everything off my to-do list each day which feels amazing. I've also been enjoying the opportunity to relax for a bit, taking swims in the morning and watching movies in the evening.
If you're looking to pick up a new healthy habit this weekend, CAP Beauty has a wonderful guide to adaptogens. This will give you a little overview of what adaptogens do and the different kinds you can use.

There was an interesting piece over at The Atlantic entitled "Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?". While it had a lot of thought-provoking points, I have to say that I disagree with the statement as a whole. My generation and the one below it certainly have our share of issues to address (just like any other generation), but I must say that I'm consistently impressed with the young women (high schooled aged) I meet or read about. They're intelligent, creative, and much more engaged with the world than most people were when I was in high school.
Finally, Man Repeller had a great reminder this week for the next time we offhandedly say, "I'm broke."
