TLS #126: February Favorites – meet team lively, productivity tools, a tea candle, books, & more


Today it’s time to share my February Favorites with you!

February was a busy month professionally… I traveled to Portland and Chicago, expanded Team Lively, and we got systems in place to coordinate with one another effectively.

In my personal life, I’m sharing what tv show I watched, book I read, tea I sipped, and products I purchased.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn more about productivity tools I’ve found useful for our team, for anyone looking to learn about the fun things I’ve been enjoying personally, and for anyone curious about who is on Team Lively. 








  • My favorite new piece of clothing.

  • The newest caffeinated and decaf rose teas I’m enjoying.

  • The productivity tools I’m using to stay on top of things personally and on Team Lively.

  • The members of Team Lively and what they do.

  • What I’ve read + watched in February.

    That candle looks amazing! Their shop is beautiful! I will definitely be ordering from them! Also, that top is super cute.

    Great episode!


    1. It is such a great candle! I think they might be out of it at the moment, but their other scents look lovely, too!

      : ) I hope you have a great day, Laura.

    Jess. I read the Woman Code a while back, and I am now working on syncing my cycle as well. I have a food blog, Robust Recipes ( Since you asked for recipe suggestions for using buckwheat I thought I would share a recipe with, Seedy Buckwheat Granola Bars! Link is below, hope you like them!

    Also, thank you so so much for your podcast! I look forward to listening to your podcast every week! They truly have added value to my life! Keep up the good work! 🙂

  6. I’m super curious about “Modern Romance” and PLEASE get that guy on the show! I think it would be a fantastic episode 🙂

  7. Hey Jess! I’m just starting to cycle sync too. A few other suggestions for buckwheat:
    Lotus Foods Buckwheat Mushroom Rice Ramen
    Arrowhead Mills Maple Buckwheat Flakes
    I get both at Whole Foods. The cereal is also available at Thrive Market (online).
