Say hello to the best part of your day and sign up for our daily newsletter!
1. Workout Of The Week: Headstand
Today is International Yoga Day and to celebrate, we challenge you to try a headstand. Just hear us out for a moment — headstands have a ton of great benefits and the more you practice the better you’ll become. Headstands can improve your blood flow and circulation as well as your balance and posture. There’s even research to suggest it can help with digestion. If nothing else, it’ll make a really good party trick. Read on and get started today — practice makes perfect! [Swirled]
2. Life Hack Of The Day: Selfie Edition
It’s National Selfie Day so up your pics and remember these two tips. Natural light is the best selfie light. Stand facing the light to get a bright photo with no shadows. And be sure to look at the lens of your phone (or camera) when clicking a selfie — not the screen. That way you’re not looking the wrong way!
3. What To Eat: Caprese on Rice Cakes
Rice cakes get a bad rap, but they are a great base for tons of terrific toppings. And if Friday is usually reserved for pizza but you’re trying to eat a bit healthier, try our better-for-you version (it’s super simple, too!). Top a rice cake with slices of fresh tomato and mozzarella cheese, a basil leaf and a drizzle of pesto. A must-have for any summer night. [Swirled]
4. R&R: At-home Manicure
An at-home manicure can be really easy — you just need a little time and patience. A steady hand doesn’t hurt either. Start by prepping your nails and removing the old polish. Then cut, file and soak your nail so it’s easier to trim or push back cuticles. The next step is key: buff your nails until they are smooth and shiny, apply lotion and let it soak in. Finally, it’s time to paint. Arrange the bottles so they’re easy to get to and keep a little nail polish remover handy for cleanup. Once you’ve applied the final top coat — sit back, relax and let those puppies dry at least an hour to minimize nicks and those dreaded smudges. [Cupcakes and Cashmere]
