Happy Sunday. Many of the articles in today’s roundup are related to COVID-19 but not all of them. I hope this week’s Sunday Edit brings you content to stay informed regarding the coronavirus but also a nice distraction with fashion-related posts. We can stay connected with the 24/7 coronavirus news coverage and also read something completely unrelated and fun to keep us all from going crazy, especially when practicing social distancing.
In other news, I’m 37 weeks pregnant and excited to meet our baby. Little did I know a few months ago that I would be giving birth in the middle of a pandemic, our parents would be quarantined and hospitals would be on the brink of being overloaded if the spread of a virus is not contained. It’s hard to believe this is real life. I’m obviously concerned but thankful to have supportive family and friends who are there for us and always checking in during uncertain times. I hope everyone stays healthy and safe. I’ll be here washing my hands incessantly and double fisting hand sanitizer.

How to read food labels, from free-range to fair trade. What is a legitimate food label and what is a marketing-driven label? Do you ever wonder what organic really means? “Organic farmers fertilize their fields with composted manure. They try to control insect pests and harmful fungi with natural predators, by rotating their crops or by using chemicals that exist in nature, such as copper. Growing grains, fruits and vegetables organically typically takes more work, and the fields typically produce a little less food, which is one reason that it’s more expensive.”
With the coronavirus and infection control on the top of everyone’s minds, more employees are working from home because of the coronavirus.
