Weekend Notes

By Camille Styles

Happy weekend, friends! On Friday, my phone accidentally got run over by a car (seriously), so the last couple days have become an unintentional digital detox. I’ve got to admit, I’m thinking about making it a regular thing — it’s been so nice to not feel shackled to my phone, and to not give into the impulse to check my email or social media whenever I have a few minutes of downtime. I’m thinking about writing a full post about the experience as it’s been a bit of a wake-up call, so I’d love to hear if any of you have tried a digital detox, and what it’s been like in the comments. And as always, enjoy my favorite links from around the web this week! xo
