This week has felt like a month. Between the debate, Chrissy Teigen's heartbreaking news and now with President Trump tweeting that he and Melania have tested positive for COVID-19 it's hard to not feel overwhelmed. On top of that, we are still in a never ending historical pandemic, people are still losing their jobs and moms, well, we are at the end of our rope.

Yes, motherhood is political, and no, self care is not enough to fix burn out, but if all you need right now is to turn off your phone and cozy up to a soft blanket because you've had enough, I hear you. Hard same. So we picked some stuff for you to buy and pamper yourself. No regrets, we all deserve some self-love right now.

Here are things that will make you feel hugged:


A plant

​Before you think "​another​ living thing for me to take care of?" this plant is safe for both human babies and also furry babies and needs very low maintenance as long as you have it in medium to bright light. It will filter the air in your house and just brighten any space.

CBD + melatonin supplements

Maybe you could use a little help quieting your brain when you put your head on that pillow.
