My Top 5 Funniest TTBG Radio Shows

I’m attracted to darkness. I feel like it’s the way we connect the deepest with each other. It’s not often that I meet a friend for lunch and be like… “…aaaaaak, life is going sooooo great for me. I’m soooo happy! I’m satisfied and rich and feel so loved ALL THE TIME” and then she’s like… “me too! Life is just …

An Ode to Dads

One of my best friends told me this incredible story. It is horribly embarrassing so I have taken out any identifiers. It is all true.

Creative Inspiration from The Vault (like Oprah's fav things list)

I get inspiration from lots of disparate places. Here are a few things that I’m loving this week, or have loved for years, or think are plain ole funny as shit. My friend gave me this book. I would never have been interested without her recommendation. It’s blowing my freaking mind. It’s making me feel like “whoa, maybe this isn’t my …

When Self-Care seems like a full time job without benefits.

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 …

My Friend David (Sedaris)…the saga continues.

I’ve been trying to become friends with David Sedaris for a few years now. It started at a dinner party when a drunk acquaintance told me that he offered to be her mentor. I started hyperventilating and asked how she responded to his offer. “I never wrote him back” she said. Story here. To me, this is the worst kind …

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 …

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” …

Dear Preparation H.

Dear Preparation H, I’m a woman of the age that now experiences daily morning puffy eyes. I’m also the brand of woman who will spend anything on a miracle cure so when I was told by a makeup artist that a secret pro tip was to put Prep H on your eyes to bring down the puff I sent my …

My Soul Doppelgänger

I met my soul doppelgänger. I instantly recognized her as me. And she as I. Her outside represented my inside. Let me explain. Her loose, casual outfit is intelligently paired to create the sense of breezy, yet sophisticated. We can even tell from a distance that care and attention is put into everything she touches. If it looks thrown together, she meant …
