#MarriageEquality : Love Wins.

I should be working. But to be honest, I’ve been distracted all day long. Today the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is legal. And that all 50 states will recognize it. I want to say upfront that I would have fought for marriage equality regardless of my own sexuality. But I think that my

[Video] Being Brave/Being Honest

Last week, I was in the middle of recording a video (talking about the way women are treated on television) and I broke down. I broke down, I thought about why… and then I recorded this video. Thank you. To all of those who helped me through this last year. Thank you. If you want

[VIDEO] Easy Milkmaid Braids!

You might have noticed that I’ve been wearing my hair up in milkmaid braids a lot.  I admit, that one of the things I love about Game of Thrones has been the elaborate hairstyles – especially Cersei’s elaborate braids.  And on Teen Wolf, Lydia Martin wears her hair braided in about four different and amazing ways.

[Vlog] March & April Ipsy Bag

It’s been a crazy couple of months. So much so that I actually didn’t get to open my ipsy bags until now. So… unboxing video! Ipsy is a monthly subscription service, like Birchbox. Only it’s $10/month. While you might not get as high end items as you would with some of the competitors, I love

The problem with slut jokes

You might have seen that Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner during a press junket responded to a question about Black Widow’s romantic interests in Age of Ultron (not saying who, SPOILERS, but it was brought up to them because in prior films it seemed like her interests were aimed at Captain America and Hawkeye) and

Comedy or Public Shaming: Fan Fic Theatre

Earlier this week, I saw a post going around Tumblr talking about Chris Gore’s upcoming panel at WonderCon – in which a group of comedians would read fanfic. And fic writers were terrified. And it’s tricky. Because I don’t blame the people who were outraged, even though the bulk of them aren’t attending WonderCon. As

Where did the posts go?

Strangely, writer’s block hasn’t been the issue. On the contrary- I’ve had too many ideas, and somehow the appropriate reaction is to decide not to write anything than make time to write it all and then schedule out the posts. My brain, it is a weird place. Also, there were about two weeks where Little
