10 Mother's Day Gifts To Brighten Up Her Quarantine

Get her something nice to show her how much you love her, her home-cooked meals, folding of your laundry, how she brings you coffee during your Zoom class because you woke up too late to make it yourself...

1. Body Love Every Day by Kelly LeVeque 

My mom got this book recently and is obsessed. Kelly LeVeque is a nutritionist loved by Emmy Rossum and Jennifer Garner who is famous for her "Fab 4" approach to changing one's relationship to food. If your mom is into health/wellness (or even if she isn't) this is an awesome gift for her. Get it at Target for only 19 bucks.

2. Alexa Leigh Bracelet 

These bracelets are the perfect simple pieces to build up your mom's wrist candy and, even better, don't break the bank. Alexa Leigh is a fabulous jewelry designer known for her "ball" bracelets. I have the gold threesome stack and am obsessed, but one of my new faves that any stylish mom would love is this Heart of Gold bracelet for only $60. Search for more styles here on her site.

3. Baggu Reusable Bags 

Ok this sounds like a boring gift but these bags are adorable and SO versatile. Encourage your mom to grocery shop sustainably, if she doesn't already, with this set of three printed bags (comes in several different prints, so pick a set that really speaks to your mom's style). Only $36 from Shopbop!

4. Levain Bakery Cookies 

THESE ARE THE BEST COOKIES I'VE EVER HAD IN MY ENTIRE LIFE SO SENDING A BOX OF THESE TO YOUR HOUSE TO SURPRISE YOUR MOTHER IS SIMPLY A NO-BRAINER. Seriously, you need them. Check out their nationwide shipping options on their website.

Seriously, I do not know how I ever got ready before this blow dryer came into my possession. Get it at Target for your mama for only $57 (much better price than the fancy DryBar one)!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Reading is a relaxing activity that provides many benefits. Everybody reads books (when they are not watching Netflix, chatting on social media, or making Tik Tok videos) to distract themselves from reality for a while.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.
