Daily use apps for mind, body and soul

I haven’t made a blog post since February! Wow! There goes my New Year’s resolution to make at least two posts every month this year. To be honest, lately I’ve been having a hard time with my anxiety, something I don’t usually talk about with anyone but my partner, my mom and my therapist. In…

Little Witch Things: Spiritually clean spaces

I’m lucky enough to have a fiancé who cleans on a regular basis. Our apartment never looks a total disaster and that’s mostly because AR does such a great job keeping up with it. I’m a lucky, lucky woman. Today, in honor of Galentine’s Day, we opted to clean together. As I write, our bed is stripped of…

Product Review Update: Mooncup

Warning: This post explicitly discusses menstrual products, menstruation, and the vagina. It’s been nearly three years since I ordered my first Mooncup. Unfortunately, for the last six months, I’ve reverted back to using tampons (and even pads!) because I misplaced my first cup and couldn’t afford to replace it. Over the course of the last…

The power of pampering yourself

To-do lists are a big part of my daily life. My time management depends on them, in fact. Without these lists, I often end up forgetting important tasks (like going to the bank and paying bills). I also forget to take little breaks from the important tasks to do things like: read for pleasure, make…

Product Review: Zoya PixieDust in Dahlia

I love nail polish. I also have this problem where I tend to bite my nails when I’m bored, nervous, or really stressed out. That isn’t exactly a good combination, but I’ve found that when my nails look nice, I’m less likely to bite them. So I try my hardest to do all of the…

Product Review: Mooncup

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while, but time management and I are not currently on speaking terms. At any rate, about three months ago, I decided while reading Inga Muscio’s Cunt that I wanted to start taking care of my body in a different way. What does that mean? I already…
