Raise your hand if you’re a fan of the occasional Throwback Thursday ‘gram? I know I’ve definitely posted a 20+ year old photo of little ol’ me rocking some serious 90’s swag: leggings, jean jacket, tattoo necklace, an adorable pair of baby Docs.

2014 was, by most accounts, a pretty rad year for the ladies in the crowd. Politically, we’ve got more woman than ever before in Congress (100 to be exact), the first African-American Republican Congresswoman,  and a blatant smack down of  extreme anti-abortion laws. Women have thoroughly flexed their social media muscles, creating trending hashtags like #YesAllWomen, #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft that united women and allies against violence, misogyny ... Read More
Ah, pizza. The great universal uniter of peoples. No matter if you're a deep dish devotee or a fold-em-in-half thin crust lover, we can all agree that there is nothing wrong with sitting down, or standing up, for a terrific slice of pizza.

Living in a huge urban center like New York City means that catcalls and whistles, unwanted greetings and gestures, can, unfortunately, come at you any time of the day or night. Case in point: I left my bartending job at 1 pm IN THE AFTERNOON yesterday, after working an all-night rave that rendered me exhausted, voice-less and wanting to buy an apple from the corner fruit stand just to chuck it at a passing police siren.
