In December of 2013, I was unemployed, unhappy, and desperately trying to figure out what to do about both. I needed to find a new job, and yet I was hesitant to chase after any job that was too much like my old one, because it had been a major supplier of misery and anxiety […]
You’ve probably come across the ads on Facebook or Pinterest, and thought, “Who needs to have meals prepped and sent to them?” The answer is: anyone who is sick of deciding what to make for dinner, despises the post-work trip to the grocery store, or has a habit of making way too much food for the […]
Spiral cut vegetables aren’t REALLY a substitute for pasta, but they’re still tasty.
It’s like Netflix for exercise. So… the opposite of Netflix.
Two years ago, I got an IUD and it was the best thing I ever did. Ever since, I’ve become one of those proselytizing women who want to talk to you about Diva Cups in line at Whole Foods, except in favor of a small t-shaped baby-prevention device. Have you accepted IUD into your uterus […]

For some people, babywearing is something where their needs and their comfort means that a SSC is going to work best for them, and sometimes people just like […]
It is hot in Scotland. Obscenely hot. Stupendously hot. Not only are we in double figures, we are in the twenties. I have been in shorts for weeks now. This, Persephoneers, is ice lolly weather. And this is how the Zoku Classic Pop Moulds came to live with us.
That’s right, you heard me: POOP.

Ever since I moved closer to my sisters, I’ve been spending a lot more time with my niece and nephews, particularly my one sister’s set of twins, since they live about five minutes from me. So even though I don’t have kids, I get to bear witness to the trials and tribulations of parenthood.
You know what’s a great look? A crisp, white blouse tucked into jeans. It’s very 1960s casual chic. Do you know what doesn’t look good? The yellowing of the pits on a crisp, white blouse. You may not know this, but the main reason for yellow pits on your lovely white blouses is not sweat. […]
