For my fellow ADHD fam, this next thing makes working online less chaotic. Sidekick was designed to help you focus and accomplish shit. The browser works like an app and streamlines the 28 tabs you have open in 4 different windows. That’s just one of the incredible features they offer. It’s hella fast AND it’s free. I’ve been using it for the last 24 hours and I love it!

Speaking of ADHD, I got embarrassingly honest with HuffPost about having ADHD and how much food I waste. I lowkey died a little inside when I read it, but I have to give myself points for my honesty.


I saw this on Twitter and now I want one in every color. This anatomical heart vase is so damn cute! I initially saw it in an online shop for $69. After a little research, I also found the same vase for $4.99 on AliExpress. LOL. Your best bet is to purchase it on Amazon. (aff. link)

For my audiobook aficionados, you need to check out LibriVox. It’s a free app available on the Apple Store and Google Play and it gives you access to free domain books (audibly). They’ve created over 17,000 audiobooks so far which is amazing since the books are recorded by volunteers!

If you’re like me and are 100% convinced that carbs don’t count when you’re on a trip, check out this beautifully designed bakery located in Ghent, Belgium. Aptly named, The Bakery, and designed by Joost Arijs, I can’t help but get Ex-Machina vibes when I look at the photos!

As if deleting our period apps due to the shit laws on abortion wasn’t bad enough, now Facebook and Google are working with police by sharing your digital data to prosecute abortion seekers. I hate it here.
