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”

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”

Oh Mother (Denim)

This morning we went to the park in the wealthy town nextdoor…you know, the town where there are multiple Tesla charging stations and white collar crimes aplenty on the City Council (scandalous!) I decided to up my playground game a tad and finally test drive my Mother Denim (no charging required). I have been wearingContinue reading “Oh Mother (Denim)”

I Saw the Sign

Today we took a drive to pick up my handmade RBG headband from a new local friend. While I ran to the door, my eldest, V, noticed the sign in her yard and the second I opened the car door screamed, “MOM LOOK AT HER SIGN! BLACK LIVES MATTER.” After I told her that IContinue reading “I Saw the Sign”
