I can’t believe it’s already August. I probably say that every year around this time. Summer is just flying by, and I’ve really tried to savor and enjoy each day. I’ve spent less time on my phone and more time being present. We’ve had beach days and lots of dinners outside and all the wonderful things that come with summer. I’ve been working on some big projects too, including my ABLE collection which officially launches August 23, save the date! Wishing all of you a great weekend.

If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…

Inside the manipulative world of social media’s false Covid vaccine narratives—holy misinformation people!

We want to support as many teachers as we can this school year. Please check out this spreadsheet with various teacher wish lists and hopefully we can clear as many lists as possible. I will add more teacher lists once we get through some of these. Thank you!

As a follow up to my blog post earlier this week, this is a great podcast episode from Ezra Klein on the questions we should ask of the technologies and tools that shape our lives. Highly recommend giving it a listen. (J)

I’m a huge Nécessaire fan and their new body oil does not disappoint! It’s fragrance free, absorbs really quickly and leaves skin glowy and hydrated.

So normally we don’t post a ton of animal videos here, but this one is sure to make you smile.

True crime story:

Two men with the same name. A murder, a manhunt, and a chilling question: Did a Florida court hand down a life sentence because of a mistaken identity?

I couldn’t be more excited for former magazine editor, Andi Bartz, because her new book, We Were Never Here is the Reese’s book club pick. Huge congrats Andi! (C)

Congrats to a reader that just launched this really cute, curated shop of eco-conscious products. I want the blue light glasses!

I got this Girlfriend Collective skort for tennis and golf and I love it! Super comfortable and really cute. I size up in this brand. (J)

This profile of a young up and coming writer was a really heartbreaking and interesting read. It’s so well written too!

A must read on who’s funding Donald Trump’s attack on democracy.

Craig and I watched the entire season of We Are Lady Parts in two nights. A sweet and funny series if you need a laugh.

A story about how an Instagram account helped save the life of a sex trafficking survivor, it’s truly incredible.

A heartbreaking story as only David Sedaris can tell it.

If you’re feeling zucchini-ed out at this point—a tasty zucchini bread is the only option.

Why millennials are so obsessed with dogs…I mean because duh, why wouldn’t we be?

      It’s my understanding the only product that isn’t is their lube which is unfortunately required testing by the FDA. Let me know if you’ve seen anything to the contrary though.
