Glossier Review

(or The Good, The Good-er, and The Good-est) Editor's note: This is not a sponsored post. I just really like these products! When Glossier first launched a few years ago, I rushed to their page, desperate to order one (ok, ten) of everything. Unfortunately, I was greeted by a familiar sight: they weren't shipping to ...

Taylor Swift: A Defense

(Or: Look What Taylor Made Me Do) So. Taylor Swift's problematically-named new single Look What You Made Me Do. I get it. That's the language of abusers. But... that's not the way that I initially saw it. Sure, when it was pointed out to me, I understood why people had a problem with that phrasing. ...

Balcony Makeover

  (Or: Well that was interesting...) A few weeks ago, I was at a company event that included a Reptilia booth that I was assigned to help with. I surprised myself by absolutely loving it, especially an adorable tarantula named Fluffy, who gives high fives and lets you pet her belly. When my boss came ...

On 33

(or: 30 Under 30 is Bullshit) Three has always been my favorite number. I was born on the 3rd. I like odd numbers and asymmetry. There are three peopleĀ in my immediate family. At any one time, I've always had three very close friends (even if the three changed over time). So I'm pretty excited to ...

The Blondening

(or: "How Do I Still Have Hair?") I distinctly remember the first time that I considered dyeing my hair platinum blonde. It was around 2006, when I was deep into my obsession with Dead Like Me's Daisy Adair. I'd already cultivated a wardrobe full of bright colors, fur collars, and beaded necklaces, but I was ...
