This week's picks coming in 3,2,1…

1. Wellness products if you’re not the best at self-care.

There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who Instagram their nightly bath, and those who twitch at the word 'relax.' Here are a few things that'll make your me-time easy.

2. The best documentaries on Netflix right now.

True crime, pop culture, nature, and more. There’s pretty much something for everyone on this list. Tonight’s plans, confirmed. 

3. Lemon desserts that are perfect for spring.

You know what they say: When life gives you perfect weather and ripe citrus fruits...make some of these. ‘Tis the season, friends.

4. 16 time-saving products that’ll make everyday life easier.

We’ve got a self-watering planter, a veggie chopper, and a laundry tool so you never lose a sock again. More time to enjoy that extra hour of daylight.

5. How often you should be cleaning your sheets (and other household items).

Spoiler: The answer isn’t just whenever you remember. Oh, and apparently you’re supposed to vacuum your mattress. The more ya know. 

6. A fun, stress-free way to pick your fave champagne. 

This company sends glasses of the world’s best sparkling wines to your door six times a year. Sign up now to get 25% off your first box. Pinkies out.*

7. Zodiac sign compatibility, explained.

9. What yoga pose is best for you, based on your Enneagram.

Obsessed with personality tests? Us too. Type Ones, time to show us your best Extended Puppy Pose. Deep breath in...

10. On-demand online courses to help you reach your goals.

11. 15 soothing cooking projects.

Because we could all use some distractions to calm our nerves. And pasta, pastries, and pot roast are delicious alternatives to biting your nails. 

12. The app that lets you save all your fave stuff from the web in one place.  

We’ve got 99 problems and having one million tabs open at all times is one of them. Enter: Pocket. It lets you save articles, recipes, videos, or anything you want. Nighttime reading just got a whole lot easier. 

13. 10 trending destinations for summer 2021, according to Airbnb.

Get those flip flops and breathable masks ready. Because it’s time to start thinking about your post-pandemic travel life. Bon voyage
