Music Mondays: Honeyblood

Honeyblood is like a throwback to the early 2000s, when I spent a lot of time listening to girls playing guitars and screaming into microphones, wishing I could do the same. Their second album Babes Never Die (2016) perfectly recalls a kind of girlhood that is reckless, carefree, and entirely itself. It’s a girlhood spent with […]

Sound Wave Saturday: Same podcast, new hosts?

Podcast friends, I have a question for you: what do you do when your one of your favorite podcasts gets new hosts? I recently discovered Stuff Mom Never Told You is back in action. It’s former (but not original) hosts Cristin and Caroline left to pursue other creative endeavors (including a book I’m very much looking […]

Amber’s Fashion Corner: Daily Affirmations

It’s hard to walk in giant overalls. I saw a dog wearing a bat wing sweater once. Dress like nobody’s watching. Dress for success and to impress…like Blur in the 90s. Dress like you don’t have electricity and you’ve been in a dark hole for a month. Trends are fun, but wear whatever you find […]

Womxm Crush(ing It) Wednesdays: Maxine Waters

I have to keep it short this week babes, so I’ll just leave you with this amazing photo of Maxine Waters at LA’s Resist March on Sunday. In my opinion it’s impossible to look at this image and not smile, Maxine is the best! Happy Wednesday! See you next week and stay angry my friends!

Music Mondays: Jorja Smith

There are plenty of times when I’ve thought, “thank you, Drake,” (no, not sarcastically*), and when his 2017 mixtape More Life dropped, that is exactly what I thought upon hearing “Jorja Interlude.” Since then this girl, who just turned 20 yesterday (!), has been serenading me. Did you catch her appearance two weeks ago on Kali Uchi’s […]

Sound Wave Saturday: An Aminatou Sow Appreciation Post

Podcast friends! I’m back from some vacation madness to recommend some auditory goodies just for you. This week I have a couple podcasts that are the result of the hard work of super cool babe Aminatou Sow.  I first heard Sow a couple of years ago when I started listening to Call Your Girlfriend.  A […]

Anxiety Journal: Exercise

Every 6 months or so I decide I need to get rid of some sad chunks(sometimes known as Buffalo chunks or summer chunks if geographically and/or seasonally appropriate). The last time I went to an exercise class in pursuit of a beach bod I ended up walking around a rite aid for an hour looking […]
