Another Mother’s Day, another six hours spent choosing the perfect Edible Arrangements. This year, however, I want to recognize my mom, Pat, in a different way, one that honors her fantastic approach to raising a hellraiser like me. Bad words, bad attitudes, and all.1. It’s okay to shit on someone’s plate.There’s a feeling out there, especially among women, that to critique is to complain, that the negative should always let the positive ride in the front seat, whether it called shotgun or not.
Nora Ephron is probably one of the few directors who needs no introduction. She penned one of the most classic romantic comedies, When Harry Met Sally and directed Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail, and Julie & Julia.But before becoming a box office hit, Ephron struggled to gain entry into the studio scene.

The Paper Artist Collective was founded in 2015 with a mission — to bring together like-minded artists from all over the world who work in the medium of paper.   What does that mean? I'm talking origami, paper sculpture, kirigami, paper illustration, 3D sculpture, quilling, ya dig? Starting tonight, sixteen artists will be presenting their diverse works in a pop-up exhibit at A-side B-side Gallery in Hackney Downs Studios in London.   All the artists work with paper, but their interpretation of the medium is guaranteed to be as diverse as their inspiration.
When I was a little girl, my mother told me I was ugly.Before you get the wrong idea, let me say for the record that my mom is amazing; she is compassionate, creative, silly, and I think she did a phenomenal job raising me and my sister.

As many women do, I spent my teenage and adult life feeling self-conscious about my body, and I hated every inch of it. Shopping for clothes depressed me, and looking in the mirror was something I avoided.But in 2013, I discovered bullet bras, girdles, corsets and seamed stockings.

Which is precisely why I kept it to myself for so long.The words offered to women to describe the things that happen to us are limited.
