Half the time I feel like a faker in the blog sphere. I'm too...normal to run a blog of this caliber. And until reading Bria's post about 5 Mindset Shifts to stop comparison-itis, I felt like I should be living a more fab life than I really do.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rhianna. Is anyone else keeping up with the new season of Broad City? Anyway, I've been making home made vegetable stock from food scraps and it's easy + delicious. I made a some whatever soup last week with leftover veggies too. Cleaned out the fridge AND had leftovers for lunch. win-win.

With the recent genius decisions in health care, it may be time to reevaluate your current birth control plan and switch to a more long term solution. Here's a great infographic comparing all the different options out there. I've been on the pill for years but may switch to an implant, anyone have experience with it?

I pulled one of those cheap cellphone wallet stickers off the back of my phone and no amount of vinegar or goo gone could get that freaking residue off. I finally broke down and got this Slim Cellphone Wallet instead, I'm definitely not organized enough to keep up with my phone AND a wallet.
