let's go deeper.

I saw on Facebook yesterday “If you are not speaking about race publically right now you are part of the problem.” I agree. The very same day I’d posted something on instagram. I’ve been obsessed with these “White People Teaching Hip Hip” Video’s lately. Obsessed. People have been sending me tons and I laugh and laugh. I think it’s so …

If I Had To Pick One Thing…It Would Be Women.

I had an hour to myself this morning so I decided to take the time to try and do something nice for myself. I’ve been feeling disconnected lately. Out of touch with “myself”. Remember yourself? That person that you used to journal about and whose hair you used to brush. I recalled that at my yoga teacher training (one of …

Eff You Self-Care Day

I deserve a self-care day. I do. Damn it. I work hard. My eyes are puffy. My son has stolen all my make-up brushes and used them to dig around the back of the toilet and I’m wearing my dead mother’s eye shadow. So when my brother bought me a gift certificate to “that place you go to buy makeup” …

The Rules: When To Make Things.

This is your job- make something today. And… You don’t get paid enough for it to be hard work so only make things for pleasure’s sake. And… You think art is an ice cream cone?! Creation has nothing to do with pleasure. Discipline. Effort. Commitment. Go. And… If you think you’re not working hard enough raise your hand. All the people …

Fond Vacation Memories Are Usually Sideways.

I’m that person who sends her coffee back It’s $4.50 and it needs to be really good. That’s a reasonable trade. The last time I went to get my hair did- I returned 2x. Because (she’s been my friend and stylist for 20 years) and it just “wasn’t quite right” and for $200 I wanted it right and guess what- …

Bra Shopping After Kids

A few days ago I went bra shopping for the first time in years. I’ve been breastfeeding for close to three years straight (due to having 2 kids in a year-and-a-half) and I’ve been living with breastfeeding tanks and stretched out maternity wear for too long. Living with two boys and one man has got me thinking about the power …

the results are in and..it's a freaking mess.

Here it is. My unsolicited expose. No more wondering, FOMO and liking their facebook ads without knowing really how they work. I got your back (vulva) on this one. I used THINX for 2 periods now and I’m here to tell all. Here we go! So we’re seeing all the ads and it looks like THINX has disrupted the period …

Female Friends Fighting is Feminist

  When women fight with me I know that means we’re tight. I don’t mean get nasty or are always on my ass. I don’t mean say mean shit or complaining all the time. I don’t mean have higher than hell expectations they demand me to reach. I don’t mean being generally rude and snotty. I don’t mean flying off …

If You Got Some- You Gotta Give Some Back.

The only reason I’ve had any success in my life is because a woman has helped me. It started when I called the only person I’d ever met at CBC radio and asked her if I could do a “secret internship” for 2 months. She said yes. She let me in the back door every morning and she showed me …
