  • Things Nobody Tells You About Going Vegetarian

    February 7, 2018

    While people have been trying out Veganuary for the month of January, I decided to do the slightly less intense version. I decided to go vegetarian.

    January 8, 2018

    Considering girls are always talked about as being in competition with each other, the show of solidarity at the 2018 Golden Globes is a prime example of how people need to stop assuming women are unsupportive of each other. 2017 was a big year for women in Hollywood beginning to step forward and speak out…
