Why I Stopped Taking Birth Control and Switched to Natural Beauty Products

There have been many changes in my lifestyle lately. Nothing major or extreme. Let’s just say I have been waking up. Words like organic, natural and vegan in which  I would have previously rolled my eyes at are now important members of my vocab fam. Strange how life works isn’t it? I am changing. I am expanding. I am growing. Like it or not I guess. One of the biggest changes in my life has been my personal choice to switch to natural, vegan and cruelty-free products. It didn’t happen overnight and I…

Dear Planet, I’m sorry we don’t give a Fuck

Dear Planet, I’m sorry we don’t give a fuck… Love Steph aka Destroyer of the world Guys I am freaking out just a little. OK, deep breath.  Allow me to explain like a normalish person. I just spent the better part of the evening educating myself on the current state of the environment. Yea, that’s right. I just went down the black hole of global warming and there was nothing warm about it. I feel fearful, I feel helpless, I feel we as a species are failing each other. I feel we are…

May Goals

Guys is it just me or did April freaking fly? Seriously where did this month go? It has been a kind of blah April for moi I must admit, my mood, the weather. It has just been blah. Not bad, just blah. I am still patiently waiting for spring days to inspire my soul, it has been a slow process up here in this icy windy land I call home. I guess all those dresses I keep buying will have to keep waiting for their time to shine. Anyway, I am excited and a little underprepared to head into May…

Often times it may be hard to find the time for myself during the work week or even the weekend…
