I Read To Forget These 25 Things

Not all of us were born angsty (think Paul Jason Klein), but I, however, am one of them. I am a pessimist to my core and love to have a good cry. I’m pretty sure studies have proven that crying is good for you. It probably makes you smarter. My dreams, on the other hand, Read More

Photographers Who Are Making A Difference In The World Of Art

Do you ever come across an image and become entranced? Stunned? Thrown off your rocker? I’ve had moments like this (which come few and far between), but there are a group of photographers that are guaranteed to make me stop in my tracks. I am constantly looking for new images to create collages out of, Read More

The Truth Is We Are ALL Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, And Charlotte

Why is the question always “Are you a Carrie, Samantha, Miranda or Charlotte?” I don’t know a single person that resembles only one. Sex and the City works for just that reason; the characters are a compilation of characteristics all women encompass…the good, the bad and the naughty. GIF Via WeHeartIt Of course, there are Read More

8 Things Women In Their Twenties Need To Do

As a woman in my twenties, I have a lot of life left to live. I want to see the sparkling lights of the Eiffel Tower at night (again), go to a strip club with my girlfriends and try more street food that is bound to give me food poisoning. I want to learn another Read More

4 Must-Watch Netflix Original Shows

I often find myself having conversations with friends concerning which shows we are currently obsessing over. The issue, however, is that once you find that one amazing show, it inevitably ends. When I’m in a show rut, I always revert back to my all-time favorites: Sex and the City, Friends, The Office and New Girl. Read More

It’s Time To Step Forward And Make A Change

Self-doubt is something I deal with on a daily basis. I’ve been writing for most of my young-adult life, and I always find myself wondering, “Who cares what I have to say?” But then I see women like Elaine Welteroth take a stand, and I’m reminded that while I may be young, I have a fierceness Read More

International Women’s Day – May We Know Them, May We Be Them, May We Raise Them.

What is it to be a woman? Does it simply mean we can bear offspring? Is it solely based on our genitalia? Some people certainly view it this way. They view women in a clinical, stereotypical manner, with no room for growth or individuality. But who’s to say that’s all we are? Aren’t we so Read More

Science Says Picturing Yourself In The Books You Read Makes You Smarter

I must admit, I pulled that title out of my a**. It’s 100% a total and complete lie. Up until the age of about 15, getting me to sit down and read a book was like pulling teeth. I hated sitting still for long periods of time and often found myself losing focus. Have you Read More

Change Is The Only Color I See – Transracial Adoption

My sister stands out in our family. I have straight blonde hair, she has curly black hair. My parents, brothers and I have light eyes, and she has brown eyes. I have white skin, and she has black skin. You get the picture – she was adopted. Eleven years ago, I met my favorite person. Read More

Do My Nipples Offend You?

Who’s to say that nudity and self-love don’t go hand in hand? I’m sick and tired of being told people can see my nipples (about 15% of people I meet probably do – most likely because I don’t own any bras). I’m not actively showing them, but if by God’s grace they happen to make an appearance – so Read More
