We began this week with a bit of positivity and an alternative solution to to-do lists on Sunday.

Later that evening, XtaSeay and I released our review of Malawi Memory Loss by Prime Wellness for our Strain of the Week series.

Then, we took at look at the story behind at the arctic marine mammal, leopard seals, becoming a resident species of New Zealand on Monday.

Afterwards, we discussed the Happy Hour Herbology held in Philadelphia on June 6.

Before going on an impromptu mini-hiatus, we tuned into “April Showers” by ProleteR on Tuesday.

On Thursday, it was co-contributor XtaSeay‘s birthday. We enjoyed festivities together throughout the week and celebrated throughout the weekend.

We’ll also be taking an inside look at Lush’s “Shark Attack” campaign, and we’ve got some special photostories on the way!

Don’t forget to stop back later today for the latest installment of our Strain of the Week series. As always, we’ll also be back with a review on Tuesday for our Tune-In Tuesdays series.
