Home For the (Pandemic) Holidays

Instead of bombarding your inboxes with 3 individual posts, here’s my holiday/birthday look rewind. Birthday Look Being a near-Christmas baby is rad. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s a week of partying and you get to pretend people are jolly and put out lights in your honor (just me?) To celebrate my 33 revolutionsContinue reading “Home For the (Pandemic) Holidays”

What I Wore When My Video Went Viral

I’ve worked in social media for years. Like, “before it was a college minor” number of years. Like “you’re 22 you know the facepage stuff!” years. The question I repeatedly get from new clients is, “How do we go viral?” Did I say I was a magician? Listen, there are ways to play the algorithms,Continue reading “What I Wore When My Video Went Viral”

Intermittent Fasting: The First Month

I started Intermittent Fasting a little over a month ago. It was recommended by my wellness practitioner for my Hashimotos because it can help reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol, blood triglycerides, inflammatory markers, blood sugar and insulin resistance as well as improve my energy because my body spends less time digesting, etc. So far I’ve noticed:Continue reading “Intermittent Fasting: The First Month”

What I Wore: Hanukkah Edition

If you read my previous blog, you know that we’re celebrating “Hanukkah light” this year for the first time ever (and, if not, now you know!) I’ve basically been living in sweats and my husband’s deodorant all week (hey at least I remembered to apply!). Autoimmune disease flare ups + protocol to kill off overgrowthContinue reading “What I Wore: Hanukkah Edition”

Introducing Your Kids to Hanukkah

A few years ago I was in a grocery store and realized there was no section for Passover. Aisles and aisles dedicated to Easter, but no Passover. It’s something I had become sensitive to since moving down south; the assumption that everyone is Christian. And, in their defense, most are where I live. I grewContinue reading “Introducing Your Kids to Hanukkah”

Be Careful What You Tweet

My motto for raising children is simple: Don’t raise assholes. I guess you could say my parenting philosophy is, “raise child who are caring, race-conscious problem solvers who understand that inequality hurts us all and are willing to put their comfort aside to help others in the pursuit of actual liberty and justice for all.”Continue reading “Be Careful What You Tweet”

My Little Vegetarian

I knew this day would come. The day when my seven-year-old, V, asked that daunting question. No, it wasn’t, “Is Santa real?” We went through that a few months ago when the practical elements of one man delivering presents all over the world didn’t make sense to my very practical child. No it wasn’t even,Continue reading “My Little Vegetarian”

Anger & Revolution

This morning I woke up thinking about the Rebecca Traister’s book “Good & Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger,” which I read about a year after 45’s Inauguration. I’m thinking specifically about the part where Traister writes about suburban white women typically voting along with their husbands; feeling secure in their patriarchy adjacent privilegeContinue reading “Anger & Revolution”

What I Wore (And Didn’t Wear): Getaway Trip

First off, get your mind out of the gutter. This isn’t that kind of website. No bears/bares of either variety on this camping trip for me. When we booked our Getaway anniversary weekend I made two promises: 1. No makeup 2. Limited social media usage I stuck to #1 and did ok with #2. MaybeContinue reading “What I Wore (And Didn’t Wear): Getaway Trip”

Friday Fashun

I’m going on my first “homeschool mommy hangout” this morning at the playground for a socially distant meet up with a likeminded mama and her 2 girls because my kids really need other tiny humans to stare at besides their brother. It’s finally Fall in Texas (thrilled). I would describe my fashion style as “cocoon”Continue reading “Friday Fashun”
