Friday Favorite(s): Promising Young Woman

Listen. I was going to give you a Friday Favorites list, I really was. I kept trying to figure out how to make a list surrounding the movie Promising Young Woman. Maybe I’ll talk about the best films of 2020. Or perhaps I’ll tell you my top 5 movies from the past 5 years. OrContinue reading “Friday Favorite(s): Promising Young Woman”

Who Gatekeeps the Gatekeepers?

Do you remember that feeling when you discover something for the very first time? That beginning period where everything is just incredibly magical and you can’t believe you’ve lived your life without this thing for all these years… It really isn’t something you can describe, it’s just a feeling. Remember when you told someone aboutContinue reading “Who Gatekeeps the Gatekeepers?”

Friday Favorites: Book Biographies

I know that the following information will be a complete and utter shock to you. You’ll wonder, “Do I even know Lauren? Who is this person?

New Years Resolutions: how I took my beauty and cleaning routine cruelty free

Update: 01/20/2021 – this post has been updated due to a very informative comment.

New Years Resolutions: how I reduced my plastic buying habits

Most years, I failed miserably (the miserable part would be the multiple restrictive diets). ThereContinue reading “New Years Resolutions: how I reduced my plastic buying habits”

Friday Favorites: Happy Winter Solstice!

Out with the Fall, in with the… Winter? Listen, it’s been a really long month. This entire week was met with, “It’s still Monday?” “It’s ONLY Tuesday?” “How is it only Wednesday?” “IT’S STILL THURSDAY?!” so I know that I will welcome Friday with open arms. My mom actually reminded me that it’s the WinterContinue reading “Friday Favorites: Happy Winter Solstice!”

Friday Favorites: Christmas Albums

I used to work in retail. During that time, I would rather impale myself on a rusty pipe [but remember that time I almost did that on accident?] than listen to Christmas music voluntarily. I also worked at a location where the Store Manager would only allow us to listen to The Chipmunks Christmas AlbumsContinue reading “Friday Favorites: Christmas Albums”
