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 ...

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 ...

Happy New Year, Patreon

Happy New Year to all! I do hope you had a safe but thoroughly fun New Year’s Eve and are now nursing your hangovers happy to see that we’ve left 2017 behind us. While I’m one of those types who actively tries to find the good in everything, there’s no denying that 2017 was a bit of a dumpster fire, no matter how you identify or where you stand. Cheers to the positivity that 2018 can only get better. As long as we set ...

Plus Size New Year’s Eve Look | Wife Life

Happy New Year! Almost. I’m back to talk about breaking those stupid “rules” us plus-size women have been held to for so many years. We’re beautiful and we know it (though sometimes it’s hard) and we’re gonna wear what we want! We’re told not to wear form-fitting clothes, but who cares if you can see my tummy in this, you can also see my waist and my boobs and that’s good enough for me. I like my body (most days) and I want to show it off! ...
