    I loved the tips from the WFH productivity article and the one on spending less time on your phone! Pre-pandemic, I had started to implement some of the strategies from How to Break Up with your Phone, which I highly recommend. If anyone is really struggling with using their phone too much, It goes more into the psychology of why our phones are addicting before setting up a game plan for using it less. https://bookshop.org/books/how-to-break-up-with-your-phone-the-30-day-plan-to-take-back-your-life/9780399581120

    If you’re still looking for cookie inspiration, may I recommend these? https://www.pret.co.uk/en-GB/dark-chocolate-chunk-cookies-recipe

    It’s a cafe chain in the UK who released their ‘secret’ recipe as a bit of a lockdown pick-me-up and can attest to the deliciousness (and speed to throw them together!).

    I felt the same way (weird) about the fact that I’ve gotten a bunch of denim from Abercrombie… and liked it. Whaaat? But I have to say, their Curvy line is ACTUALLY curvy and has granted me my first well-fitting-without-tailoring shorts in years!

  4. Lindsay says:

    I’ve tried both the Rael patches and the Acropass patches and the Acropass is much more effective. The Rael is fine-ish for surface acne, but doesn’t do anything for cystic acne. Acropass has worked for me 9/10 times for both surface level and cystic acne.

    • Belle says:

      Agreed on effectiveness. I keep both on hand, but I cannot burn an Acropass patch on just a regular blemish. It feels wasteful.

Shoe Week: One Last Summer Shoe

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
