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” …

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 …

Super Nerd

I grew up in a trailer in the woods. It was not a luxurious double-wide but we did have an addition built on to it so there was an extra room. We grew meat birds and to keep the baby chicks warm in the spring we would keep them in the house under a heat lamp. I preferred them living in my bedroom so I would fall asleep every night to chirping of birds and the smell of tiny poos.

Letters to Celebrities I’ve Never Sent- Amy Poehler

Dear Amy, I’m writing to you even though every inch of me is screaming noooooooooo. I’m so deeply ashamed that I’ve even started this letter…and as I continue this sentence the loathing grows. Everything I type is vile, clever garbage and I want to shoot myself (oh God more garbage) to stop my brain from continuing… But. I’m going to do …

Input VS Output (the fine, fine, finest balance)

I have nothing to say about this except 1 thought. 1 take. No filters. In my bed desk. My output is way out of wack with my input. Once you’ve heard me speak truth to power from my bed. Watch the video below of trying to follow my own advice. Love all to you no-stop outputters out there. xo Em

The F*ck It Year.

One of my most favourite things to talk about is the “optics of success” and how we tend to see, and be shown only certain parts of people. We see their successes and impresses, less so their distress (alliteration baby). And this little “know-it-all”‘ thought she had it down pretty good…being fully herself publically- until it hit me. I’m still …
