taco cabana for femme fatales and taco bell for the girl next door

When Riverdale first came out, I became totally engrossed in the odd teen drama. I had read the comics growing up and assumed an adaptation would be lovely. But as we all know, CW adaptations are always frothy teen dramas with odd writing and strange plot points. There’s almost always an exceptionally attractive cast, underage romances, an older woman messing with a teenage stud, and … Continue reading taco cabana for femme fatales and taco bell for the girl next door

popeye’s snatching the crown from jesus chicken

Chick-fil-A and I have a complicated relationship. I’ll eat it. But I won’t go out of my way to do it. CFA reminds me of that weird hyper-religious girl that loves horses, Jesus, odd skirts, and crucifying and judging other people for their actions. Think of Mandy Moore, and Amanda Byne’s character in Easy A. You know exactly who I’m talking about. I’ll eat CFA, … Continue reading popeye’s snatching the crown from jesus chicken

the emily gilmore of hard candies

I am not a huge fan of hard candy. I have always loved candy you can munch on and chew, which is why my favorite candies are gummies and truffles. I like candy I can bite into. Plus, there’s just something about hard candies that reminds me of a grandmother’s purse full of coins, photos of their grandchildren, and multicolored potentially expired hard candies. I … Continue reading the emily gilmore of hard candies

hacking the hot bar with leaves

The Whole Foods Hot Bar, although ostentatiously overpriced and the representation of a pretentious and classist cafeteria buffet, will always hold a very special place in my heart. I know all about the Whole Foods, “whole paycheck” jokes and how ridiculously overpriced it is. But no matter how bourgeoisie and white af it is, I cannot stay away. It’s like the fratty pre-law guys I … Continue reading hacking the hot bar with leaves

is healthy candy an oxymoron

The keto diet has become wildly popular in recent years. It’s mostly because people love shortcuts and fatty dairy products, and the keto diet encompasses both. People will do absolutely anything to cut corners, people will also do absolutely anything an excuse to eat copious amounts of cheese and butter. Trust me, I’m lactose intolerant and you’ll still see me chowing down on some jalapeño … Continue reading is healthy candy an oxymoron

take me to milk bar not red lobster

Everyone has different thoughts when it comes to birthday cake. It’s like the perfect man—if you ask different women, they’ll come up with radically different imaginations as to what the perfect man is like. My perfect man is a tall, handsome, intelligent, charming and witty man who looks like a cross between Childish Gambino and Henry Golding. He has secret tattoos, is a philanthropist, loves … Continue reading take me to milk bar not red lobster


I have always loved cupcakes. In an age where green juices are growing in popularity, along with extravagantly elevated basic desserts, I remain loyal to cupcakes. Even the humble donut has gotten a maple bacon bourbon makeover and cotton candy has been transformed into burritos. It is clear, more than ever, that desserts feel the need to compete for either the wow factor or the … Continue reading cupcakes

here’s the tea

Yerba Mate. I consider it green tea’s cooler, older trendier friend that is energized and glowy. Think of that girl in your spin class class that’s inexplicably bendy, never breaks a sweat, and is always chipper and bubbly af as you drag your tired and dilapidated self into 5:00 am class. Slim, thin, interesting and effortless, that’s exactly what this tea is. Encompassing the can … Continue reading here’s the tea
