The holidays are coming! And normally I’m very much a no-Christmas-until-Black-Friday kind of person, but this year there is a ongoing issue with shipping delays and labor shortage. This doesn’t mean panic! It does mean that we should be shopping earlier than Black Friday. If you’ve been following for awhile you know that I love […]
Introduction Earlier I posted a post on ditching your New Years’ diet and why diet culture sucks and I realized my resource list was just too long for the bottom of that blog post. I decided to make a resource page that I (and you) can link back to of body-positive, fat-liberation, and anti-diet resources […]
Ditch your New Years’ diet! I’m telling you why the predatory nature of the diet industry doesn’t work and what to do instead.
Happy 2021 everybody! At least I’m hopeful it might be happier. I debated on doing a Year in Review this year because I haven’t actually blogged a lot and it’s been a crappy year overall, but I thought in an effort to start blogging more consistently and nurturing this website again I would go ahead […]
“evermore” is a great winter album and is honestly fueling my witchy heart. Also, the aesthetic of these albums is our new wedding theme.
Happy almost Halloween! I’m back with another spooky review, this one of a TV show on Netflix: “The Haunting of Bly Manor”. Since I can’t seem to actively write a review for a TV show or movie without spoilers here’s your warning: spoilers for the entire season of “The Haunting of Bly Manor”. Josie and […]
It’s October! So I thought I’d come back from hiatus with some spooky reads for you all! Over the summer I read Mexican Gothic, a psychological thriller set in the 1950s in Mexico. Synopsis From the author of Gods of Jade and Shadow comes a novel set in glamorous 1950s Mexico. After receiving a frantic […]
It’s not a secret that I’ve loved The Bold Type since it’s first few episodes released. For me, it came out at a time that I had gotten my first leadership role in a campus publication and has been a huge inspiration to me as a writer, person in media, and a professional woman in […]
HAPPY PRIDE! I’m so so excited to bring you a book rainbow this year. Every single book on this list has LGBTQIA+ representation and some of them have other representation. I will try to outline the diversity as I find it, but some of these books I haven’t read yet and if I got any […]
Every year I do a pride post decked out in rainbow for the beginning of Pride Month. It’s one of my favorite posts to do all year, but such a carefree post doesn’t feel right this year. In the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the rise of protests against police brutality across the world, […]
Hello Dreamers! For my last post in May, I wanted to acknowledge Mental Health Awareness Month, especially during the pandemic. I was diagnosed with depression and generalized anxiety disorder when I was 16, though they were monitoring signs of anxiety when I was 11. I’ve grown up having mental health issues for most of my […]
The series has been acclaimed for its diversity in cast and characters. Featuring queer witches in a military environment, it has a unique perspective on love, friends, power, womanhood, and the meaning of family.
This book was everything that I want in a book. It takes place in Salem where I spent most of my childhood having grown up in the adjacent town. The main character is a lesbian, there’s bi representation– and witches, they are witches! I’ve been absolutely craving queer witchy media lately after getting entirely into “Motherhood: Fort Salem.”
Adele posted this beautiful message for first responders and essential workers on her birthday and the world ignored that very important and kind message and made it about her body.
Good Afternoon from dreary, rainy Wisconsin. I struggled with what to write this week as I try to pick back up blogging weekly. My numbers have been rising steadily which is honestly unexpected during quarantine when (let’s be honest) we just want to mindlessly binge Netflix. I struggled to think of what would be relevant, […]
I was thinking really hard about the content I wanted to make during this time. I know a lot of people are struggling with date night ideas, and since Josie and my anniversary are on Saturday, and we were long-distance for six years, I figured I’d give you some of my ideas for keeping the love alive weather you’re quarantined with your significant other or not!
“I’m thrilled I have a series about a girl who is desperately in love with another girl so much that she would move heaven and Earth for her.” This book broke me apart and put me back together. Thank you Tehlor Kay Mejia for weaving such a rich story about love, rebellion, and hope.
Last week Taylor Swift dropped her newest project, “Miss Americana,” on Netflix. The 1-hour 25-minute film is a documentary on the last few years of her life and career and there’s a lot to unpack. It’s bold, unapologetic, and honest in a way that hit home harder than I expected it to. ***From here on […]
Note: This post was edited on 4/23/20 for pronoun changes as Alexis Frost came out as MTF transgender. The Oscar Nominations came out a few weeks ago and man they were polarizing. Now, I have my own opinions, but I also have a movie buff best friend. My friend Alexis Frost (Alex for short) is […]
I missed you guys so much! A lot has happened since I took a forced hiatus in November. My laptop that was my baby died, I did A LOT of traveling, and I was diagnosed with tendonitis in my wrist. I have a new laptop now, you will get lots of travel posts, and the […]
