Disconnect to Reconnect
One of the best things you can do is disconnect from your screens and get more face time with friends and family.
It’s tough to tear yourself away, but worth the effort and memories made when we focus on having meaningful conversations rather than a quick text exchange.

Fall For New Art
Spice up your space with a new piece of art that doesn’t break the bank.
Receive personalized art recommendations via Kollecto from art advisers based on your style preferences (abstract, photography, fine or pop art) and sub-genres (minimal, geometric, expressionist) and immediately be presented with options!
Dare to Go Bare
Give you skin the weekend off, forgoing foundation and powders that provide heavier coverage.
Emily from Cupcakes & Cashmere recently challenged herself to only use a few drops of concealer while on vacation.
Allowing her beautiful freckles and natural glow to emerge, both of which are hard to replicate from a bottle.
I hope these inspire you to do something new whether it be fun, relationship deepening or productive!
