Best Life?? How About Survival.

OK Folx, the shizzle’s about to get real. You’ve seen my business do many twists and turns over the years. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been a certified life coach, (still am, but I now only do one-on-ones on occasion or through my tarot consulting) jewelry maker, writer, (always) podcaster, (was and now will soon […]

The Holy Grail of Handbags and Happiness

Confession: I am a purse snob. Back when we were actually going places and needed such frivolous things, I had a handbag obsession. And sadly, it’s been an obsession with high quality, not-Target purses. Now don’t get me wrong, I love me my Bullseye Superstore and I must say it is rockin’ the fashion department […]

Nope Rhymes with Cope.

My friend recently posted on her Facebook feed how she is starting to hit the wall with this whole pandemic thing. I know for a fact that she is not alone as the vaccines are taking longer to roll out, and therefore the predictions of when we can get back to what is anything close […]

What’s Your Magic Word?

If you had my Badass Planner back in 2018 (and if you did, thank you!) you know that my January essay was all about “the one word to rule them all”.  Not only can I never resist the chance to use a Lord of the Rings reference, but your magic word is my substitution for […]

2020: Middle Fingers Akimbo

It’s mid-December already! I’m pretty sure you are feeling like I am, and more than ready to bid a “Yipee Ki Yay, Mother Fucker!” to 2020 as you go out, giving it the one-finger salute. (oh hell, make it two…one finger on each hand. It’s definitely deserved the double digits.) But before we go out […]

Making Your Big Magic

Well of course this is a little more difficult in a pandemic, but I think in general we all feel a little closer to ‘magic’ at holiday time. Not the Santa-can-somehow-fit-down-the-chimney-without-burning-his-ass kind of magic, although there is definitely that, but everyday magic that still manages to sprinkle its way into our bah humbug hearts. The […]

Keep Banging Your Gardooka.

Well. I almost completely forgot to write this blog post for you, dear readers, because my week has been taken over by the fact that my dear hubby got the dreaded ‘Rona. Now I could write this entire post about how angry I am with him for putting himself in the position he did where […]

Happy Not Thanksgiving!

Happy Not Thanksgiving! Man, what a year. OF COURSE this holiday is going to feel like a non-thing, just chock it up to ol’ 2020. (I think the woman above is just wishing it would all go away.) Honestly, I’m not so keen on Thanksgiving, anyway. These days I’m much more aligned with Native American […]

I am LIVING with Eli Roth.

What are you guys watching right now? It’s probably no surprise to you that when all of my friends are watching The Queen’s Gambit, I’ve been binging Eli Roth’s History of Horror. I highly recommend! If you are fans of horror you will LOVE it, as each episode he focuses on different aspects of horror […]

I Got Your Hope Right Here.

Hey friends, how is everyone doing out there? Nothing like a little UNKNOWN to make your life feel completely unbalanced. But honestly, why would this election be any different than the rest of 2020? This pandemic, no matter how much so many people seem to be pretending it doesn’t exist anymore, (don’t get me started) […]
