Let's talk about (ethical) underwear

Like so many women I know (sadly), I've grown up with a whole complex with my body, and since high school I've tried to minimize my chest in particular. Mostly because I was self-conscious, to be honest, but also for the sake of physical comfort; if I don't strap the girls down with some heavy-duty underwire, it legitimately hurts to do casual life things like, I dunno, walking down stairs. 

But as I've gotten older and grown to have more body peace, I've started to look for bras and underwear that actually help me feel good about my body. But do you know how hard it is to find bras/underwear that 1.) actually support you, 2.) won't fall the frick apart in a few wears, and 3.) aren't made in sweatshops?

Top 10 books I read in 2017: mini-reviews

Aiight. Here it is. I've blogged exactly five times this year and I could leave it at that, but this isn't mothereffing 2016, year of the dumpster fire. This is 2017, year of Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman and the Internet finally recognizing the downright majesty of Congresswoman Maxine Waters.

SO. I'm here to throw down and review 10 of the 30-something books I read this year. Hold onto your girdles, fam,  I have a giant mug of coffee and I'm running on like five hours of sleep so AWAY. WE. GOOOO.

Top 10 books I read in 2016: mini-reviews

I'll be honest. I read a lot less this year than I usually do. It's been a rough year all the way around, and I'll probably talk about that later. Meanwhile, I'm writing this annual mini-review post because it brings me joy and also, there's little I love more than telling people what to read and how to live their lives.

Lezzgo.

This is my third annual Top 10 round-up in which I mini-review my favorite reads from 2015 because I am a huge freaking fangirl. I was totally supposed to read 55 books this year, and I didn't. Of the 40-some books I did read, I largely reread old favorites, but here are ten new ones I fell in love with this year.

We're doing it again, guys. Well, I am. And you're along for the ride as I laugh diabolically to myself behind my hand. HA. HA HA.

So I took the Goodreads Reading Challenge to read 50 books in 365 days. I read 38 last year, so I figured it would be pretty manageable—but dude. This year has been insane. It was a miracle that I finished the 50th book before December 31st.

The 10 books that made me

There's this thing going around on Facebook right now called the Top 10 Books List. Since I was "nominated" a couple of days ago, instead of writing a status update and risk monologuing about my fav books for the next decade, I decided to not follow directions and blog about it, thereby defeating the purpose of the Facebook status challenge.

Top 10 books I read in 2013: mini-reviews

Just in case you were wondering how big of a nerd I am, I've read 38 books in 2013 not counting re-reads, and am currently in the middle of book #39 (Seraphina by Rachel Hartman). Granted, some of those books were for college literature classes, but more than half were books I read on my own. Because I, uh, binge-read. A lot. Below are mini-reviews of ten books I read in 2013 that I loved, spoiler-free because I also love you:
