[Review] Society+ Anne Lace Skirt

Society+ approved my application to review a piece of their clothing! I’m super, duper psyched. I chose the Anne Lace Skirt to review – they sent it to me for free. There’s your disclaimer. And here’s my (mostly) unbiased review! I’ve styled this skirt three ways that I’ve decided to call Floral Everything, Shabby Chic-thlete,…

Polarization Is Necessary: All Aboard the Polar Express (choo choo)

Recently my husband mentioned how he feels some sympathy with modern centrists. He’s expressing how unhelpful he thinks polarizing comments are, both blatantly polarizing (like “that politician is a garbage human”) and also sassy communication of facts (like Republicans working to thwart liberals at every opportunity being described as “repeatedly slamming their dicks in a…

My real life tl;dr review is that the Big Fig mattress is…

UPDATE 06/28/17: It was rightly pointed out that this article is yet another white person’s take on an issue that involves PoC pain and oppression.

Feeling helpless in social justice issues? Try reparations!

Reparations is a dirty word – but it’s only dirty because of white supremacy and fragility. Reparations is viewed as an admission of guilt. I know because, with my social anxiety, I get stressed and fearful at the thought of someone challenging me on why I might be doing something and the reason is reparations….

Silence Is Violence – and Also, Golden

Content warning: weight stigma, weight loss, mental health issues. If you know me, you are probably at least a little bit aware of the fact that I am against intentional weight loss. You should be at least aware that I am both very fat and if you start talking about weight loss even for yourself,…
