Sex after Kids: Sex, Body Positivity, and the Single Mom

Since my experience of childbirth and motherhood was immediately followed by the twin whammies of separation and divorce, then endless months of not sleeping and new parent anxiety, I didn’t think about sex for two years after my daughter was born. I literally couldn’t imagine a time when I wouldn’t feel overwhelmed, overtouched or overtired. […]

My Summer of Cult Classic Korean Face Masks

My Best Friend

You know those women with one best friend? A friend like a sister, a forever partner in crime, and a soulmate. The sort of epic friendship that requires girls’ weekends and nights out. Giggling, crying, gossiping, empire building, problem-solving, and world domination. Makeup, feminist ideology, and the merits of comfortable yet attractive shoes. Life-renewing, empowering […]
