A dry January update…

As part of my New Year's resolution of being impeccable with my word (to myself!), I committed to an alcohol-free January. Why subject myself to this torture, you ask? Well...after quite a boozy holiday December, I wanted to prove to myself that I don't need to drink wine to have a good time AND I… Continue reading A dry January update…

Slowing down automated living with rituals.

I've recently received two gifts that have quickly become the cornerstone of my morning routine: a vintage vinyl record player and an espresso machine. Every morning, I crawl out of bed 30 minutes earlier than usual, and stumble sleepily into my living room to strategically select a record from my quickly growing collection to set… Continue reading Slowing down automated living with rituals.

Goodbye, 2015.

I would like to gracefully depart 2015 with a note for anyone who has recently had their heart broken. Things probably seem pretty fucking shitty right now.

Realization #1 – Diane Farr is a bad-ass bitch.

I'm a compulsive researcher. Whenever faced with a dilemma, I turn to Google to impart its infinite wisdom onto me: How do I get over my douchebag ex-boyfriend? How many calories in a tub of Ben and Jerry's? When will my ovaries start shriveling up? WHEN, GOOGLE? WHEN!? Just kidding. Sort of. (P.S.
