December hath arrived. This means twinkly lights in our shop window, Mariah Carey cranked to 11, and a list of people who still need gifts after the first round of shopping, where we only buy things for ourselves.
So, throw some labels on your loved ones and take a look at the lists below.
Giving Tuesday is about supporting nonprofits with the same enthusiasm that we use to scoop up early Christmas presents and discount deals on Black Friday (or speed-click sale pages on Cyber Monday!).
For this year’s Giving Tuesday, we wanted to talk about the suit—and its charity—that started it all. Julia, the Julia suit, and the accessible water organization ACTS.
Saying I do to My Body
This past October, I got married. I did it up pretty big, too. A big, white, cupcake dress, two hundred guests from near and far. Nine months of preparations, crafting, and DIY-ing whipped by in a pleasure-filled blur of prosecco, friends’ faces, and silk organza. And now I’m a Mrs, living with a Mr. in a new apartment.
This year’s summer send-off was perfection. We got together a gang of pals for an unconventional girls trip aboard The Porpoise, and spent five days island-hopping the Georgia Strait.
If this sounds like an absolute dream, it was. Come relive the journey with us.
I wanted to start a place on the blog where we hear from everyday women of all ages, sizes and walks of life regarding body diversity, struggles, confidence and the pressures of womanhood. I want to hear these stories because they remind me that I am not alone in my thoughts and my shame and I am sure they will bring the same sense of comfort and community for many of our followers as well.
Today you will hear from me, because in order to ask vulnerability of others we must first share ourselves.
