Body, Womanhood

I’m fat and I love my body…and I want to lose weight

As if the world wasn’t crappy enough with Covid-19 , Tronald Rump, and TikTok, Adele and Rebel Wilson aren’t fat anymore. Jesus take the wheel! I’ve seen it happening a lot lately.

In that distraction I saw some… Continue reading for Harriet…

Ready for my debut!

I want to know how people do it. No seriously, I want the secret. There must be a supernatural way that people balance being a creative while working a full entire ass nine-to-five.
