12 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day Every Day

Happy Earth Day! Today is one of my favorite days of the year because, for at least 24 hours, significantly more people are aware of the impact they have on the environment and actively work to lessen that impact. But Earth Day is only one of 365 days. What if everyone did as much as they do on Earth Day every single day of the year? Think of how much difference we could make. I’ve got 12 ways you can celebrate Earth Day every day and make ...

Wife Life | Body Positivity and Mass Media

I Feel Pretty (But Only After a Concussion) – Body Positivity isn’t a Joke Recently, trailers for a new Amy Schumer movie have taken over my social feeds. The movie — which I’m not linking because I don’t want to give them the views or traffic– focuses on Schumer’s character hitting her head in a SoulCycle class and suddenly seeing herself as beautiful and being confident in her body for the first time, despite being ...

My Femme Isn’t Weak. Your Inability to Accept it is.

My Femme Isn’t Weak. Your Inability to Accept it is. In my teen and college years, I dated men. I know, the most vocal, confident, and proud lesbian of them all dated men. Would you believe it’s because I thought I was supposed to? Sure I knew I wasn’t entirely straight. I mean have you seen Kiera Knightley? [fans self] But I didn’t fit into any of the stereotypes I’d seen of queer women. I wasn’t the proud owner of a closet of flannels, I ...

What I’m Currently Reading and Listening To

Somehow, despite all of the work I’m constantly doing, I still find time to sit and read, listen to podcasts, and watch television. Mind, when I say TV I mean Netflix. Our TV is hooked up to the internet and that’s it. And, honestly, that’s how I prefer it. But I digress… I always have people asking what I’m reading, watching, and generally consuming. So here’s a look into what’s on my radar ...

Make sure to tune in the second Tuesday of every ...

When Spring Just Hasn’t Sprung Yet | Spring Style

We all know how much I love winter. I’ve been terrible at keeping it a secret and it’s definitely something that affects my life decisions in big ways (post on that coming soon). But when the calendar says it’s March, I’m definitely ready for the weather to turn and to stop having to wear a coat everywhere – even if my winter coat this year is pretty darn cute. It’s the time of year when spring pieces are ...

Women’s History Month and Femme Identity | Celebrating ALL Women

It’s Women’s History Month! Over at Stile.Foto.Cibo we love celebrating Women’s History Month, but our team is made up of cisgendered women, so it’s a celebration created with us in mind. And that’s alright! Women’s history is definitely something to celebrate. It’s a long and arduous road that we’ve come down to get where we are, and there’s still a long road ahead of us  to get where we deserve to be. A large part of the oppression of ...

Queer Couple Makeup Challenge | My Wife Did My Makeup and It’s Hilarious

There’s nothing like a silly YouTube challenge to make you giggle and keep the chill off as we eagerly await Spring’s arrival. And, thus, Ari and I created the Queer Couple Makeup Challenge! I laid out all of my regular makeup products and turned her loose on my face. Enter hilarity. “The only one I know how to use is eyeliner.” Uh oh… Needless to say, this makeup challenge caused some amazing giggles along the ...
