Science says that sleeping in on weekends doesn't really make up for the hours of sleep you lost during the week, and while that may be true, that's not going to stop us from sneaking in a nap or two on a cool Saturday afternoon.

As a result, bumabangon ka na lang din kahit pagod ka pa.

Essential oils

I've only recently discovered the magic of essential oils, and I can't believe it took me this long! I add a few drops into a diffuser and fall asleep feeling like I'm about to have the best dreams.

Comfier clothes

Imagine taking your bra off for the weekend and slipping into sleepwear that feels like clouds. If that's an old, oversized T-shirt you've had for years, we *totally* get it. But if you want to try something a little more ~luxe~, we support that, too!
