Now, let’s dive into our weekly recap.

Weekly Recap

We began our week with some advice for all you writers out there looking to up your editing game.

On Monday, poet Priti reflected on a love that once was in her poem, “Those Rains.”

Then, we gave you our thoughts on Lush’s Banana Skin facial moisturizer.
Spoiler alert: it smells like banana Runtz and we love it.

On Tuesday, we tuned in to a heart-to-heart discussion with London-based artist Katie Wood to learn more about her latest single, “Uh huh Yeah,” which touches upon her struggles with agoraphobia.

Afterward, we reviewed Florida-based singer-songwriter Lu$’ lively, anthemic debut EP, “Moody.”

On Wednesday, we published a very motivational interview with author Anita Oommen. Oommen candidly discussed her healing journey and described how she found her voice. We also talked about her latest book, “3-Minute Inspirational Reflections For the Soul.”

Next, S. Anne Kelln opened up about her experiences with chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder in her poem, “The Body Has Its Own Truth.”

On Thursday, editor burgundy bug shared the nitty-gritty details of her experiences seeking healthcare treatment during the pandemic.

Then, Australian artist Natalia Bennett used her passion and talent to spread the word about the Black Lives Matter Movement and LGBTQIA+ rights.

On Friday, we explored the caffeine paradox in, “Can Caffeine Decrease Productivity?

Afterward, poet Mahik’s inspired us with her beautiful, motivational quotes.

Last – but far from least – we ended the week with advice for those who are self-employed and feel they’re stuck in a monotonous, unchallenging loop.

Going Forward

We’re just one month away from the release of “The Burgundy Zine #16: Skin Care, Self Care!” Submissions will remain open for the upcoming issue of our digital magazine until July 21.

Additonally, we’re going to share more information about our updated advertising prices this week – be sure to keep an antenna out!

Until next week,
