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.

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 …

Bigger and Bolder and Golder

During a session with an intuitive a year ago she told me that she saw me as I saw myself…a hunched over old cackling clown, dragging a bunch of junk behind her, with a limp and smeared red lipstick; rebellious and shit-disturbing. I was funny and entertaining and even subversive sure, but it was an act – to soften my …

To Be Inspiring You Have To Be Inspired.

I called my friend Carmen wailing, blubbering like my heart had been broken. It had been. In that moment. The Moth (PRX and NPR Radio and Podcast Storytelling show) was coming to Vancouver for the FIRST time and they didn’t ask me to perform. HOW was this possible I rallied on the phone to Carmen “I’m THE BEST storyteller in …

Learning How To Be A Bad Mom (is of course good)

My oldest son just turned 4 and you know how every parent is like “cherish every minute, it goes by so fast.” Uh. No. It. Doesn’t. These years have reminded me of when I used to work at a shitty deli and I’d look up at the clock, sure that my shift was almost over and only 10 min had …
