Those of you who have been with me for a long time (thank you so much btw!!!) know that I’ve struggled with my skin pretty much since I started this blog. After many trials and tribulations, I’m happy to present to you the fruit of all my skincare labors!
Winter is all fun and games until after New Year’s when all the festivities are over and the only thing to look forward to are more rain, numb toes, and chapped lips.
That being said, wintertime is the best time to slow down and cozy up with that book you kept saying you’d read and that knitting project you forgot about amid the holiday rush. Here are some things this winter that sparked joy for me; enjoy!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Amid all the hubbub about romantic love, I want to talk about one of the most important, yet neglected loves of our lives: self love.
People have been talking about self love and self care a lot lately, and much like the growing popularity of progressive movements like feminism, it’s been a mixed bag. On one hand, loving and caring for ourselves is so, so important and these discussions have brought issues of mental health to the forefront. On the other hand, I’ve seen “self love” misused as a marketing ploy to get consumers to “treat yourself,” often completely missing the radical and political roots of self love and care.
I want to take a closer, more critical look at the concepts of self love and self care, and how we can incorporate loving and caring practices into our own lives.
Traditional menstrual products are often full of toxins, not to mention huge contributors to landfill waste. Luckily, there are tons of sustainable, toxin-free alternatives. Turns out that what’s good for the environment is also good for your vagina!
I’m sharing the story of my relationship with my body, and what has helped me love being in my own skin, in hopes that this will resonate with some of you and that we can support each other in our own journeys towards body peace.
This is part two of my IUD series, about the weird side effects I’ve gotten from sticking a hormone-carrying foreign object into my body.
This is the first of a multi-post series on my love-hate relationship with my IUD. Getting something inserted into your body is kind of scary, so I’m hoping to demystify the process and give you as much info as possible if you are considering getting one, too!
