Happy V-Day, gorgeous! From our hearts to yours, a carefully curated (and long overdue) list of everything we’re loving, adoring, and currently obsessing over.
Up to something amazing? We want to know. Share in the comments below for a chance to be featured on next month’s edition of link love.
EVERYTHING WE’RE CURRENTLY OBSESSING OVER:
LOVE BOMB BOOTCAMP!! Our new passion project is live and we could not be more excited. Check it out. We might be biased but...we think you’ll love it.
Despite my vow back in umm...August?? (Jess speaking, btw) to build some sort of solid/daily meditation practice, things are still kind of rocky though these guided meditations by Tara Brach are helping.
For major LOL’s, we lovingly recommend Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson. For more LOL’s, we lovingly recommend everything else she’s ever written.
Fragrant Vanilla Cake strikes again with her vegan Valentine’s Day dessert roundup. Warning: This link causes extreme bouts of hunger.
These words from Danielle LaPorte:
“Don’t worry about how you’re going to fix what’s broke. Just notice what sucks with ruthless honesty. You might feel a strange sense of elation when you get that real: I Know It Sucks Euphoria. And when you’re high on the truth (even the hard truths), you’ll have new vantage point for solutions.”
“At some point, we have to soften – which is counter-intuitive when you feel like you’re drowning. When you’re hammering yourself for being in pain again, gentleness is actually a breakthrough.”
Loving these deep, raw, inspired interviews with Melissa Ambrosini on her new podcast. Highly suggest listening!
Speaking of podcasts, Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso is also a new favorite. We especially loved the episode with Christene Barberich, Global Editor-in-Chief & Co-Founder of Refinery29.
PUPPIES! I’ve been volunteering at a local dog shelter that specializes in rescuing dogs from high kill environments so this is very, very, very close to my heart. If you’re looking to get a dog please consider adopting. If you want to volunteer, foster, or get involved, please reach out!!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
Here at UA, we had a whole month of (self)love.
The life-changing magic of not giving a f*$k.
A fresh dose of anxiety because…you got anxiety? GIRL, me too.
How to deal with the D. (And by D we mean depression.)
A 7-step (and then some) guide to mastering self-love by our soul sister Reanne Derkson.
A very helpful guide on how to stop comparing yourself to other people (including the people you see on the internet).
15 Reasons to fall for yourself this Valentine’s Day (and every day after).
And finally, the ultimate self-lover’s Valentine’s Day gift guide because no matter your current relationship status, how dreamy your boyfriend is, or how much you love to hate on this over-hyped holiday, the greatest happily-ever-afters always come from falling for yourself, first.
