Two very important things to know about me; I love mint but I hate sand. I don’t know why exactly I thought buying a soap full of sand would make me a happy camper, but I guess 2 years ago I did not think before I bought soap (lets be honest, I still usually don’t). Also, I’ve had this soap for two years, before I tried it; sheesh, self. It makes me very glad that I’m not buying soap until I’ve worked through what I’ve got; there’s some super old soap in my cabinet, just waiting to be used. But this one!
I did not read anything about this book before I bought it. I assumed it was just a story about strong women in someone’s life, and how they influenced the writer and/or main character. But this is a series of essays or short stories about struggles that are very real (and some that aren’t quite real) for women all over the world.
I have a lot of issues with my body; the way it jiggles and how muscles never seem to be defined. I don’t like that I break out in acne often because of my exercise & facial cleaning routines. I don’t like the way my thighs rub together when I walk or run; not just because I don’t like how it looks, but that’s something that can genuinely hurt.
So far, I feel like episode 3 has covered the least amount of pages from the book. A lot happened, don’t get me wrong, but this episode didn’t feel as full as the past two have. We get a few new characters, two new vignettes, and a Shadow who begins to believe…maybe.
Friends, I finally sat down and read the trade collection of Henchgirl, Kristen Gudsnuk’s comic. I’ve known Kristen for a couple of years, and am so happy that this fantastic story was picked up by Dark Horse.
The second season of the Netflix series Sense8 was released on May 5th. Even though I didn’t get to binge watch it, I did finish it at 1am Monday night. I reviewed season 1 and the holiday special here and here. I liked season 1 and I loved the holiday special. But season 2 is the best the show has ever been.
I didn’t really know what to title this, or honestly to what end I’m writing this. It’s not a reaction to something that was said, nor is it an attack on those who have different opinions than mine; I just needed to write it down. The other day I posted the below photo in my Instagram story, because I realized that I use a lot of products daily. As soon as I posted it, I realized that though my friends aren’t usually the type to assume, some folks may see that as a way to either humble brag that I spend too much on products (1. It’s my money & 2. I’ve actually slowed my spending tremendously because I have so much product that hasn’t been used yet), or to show how hard I work to make myself look good.
