Finding a Doctor Who is Actually Worth the Copay

I’m not a particularly sickly person. On top of my general good health (knock on wood), I grew up with the minimal-medicine lifestyle. My mother was an nutritionist, and a big believer in the phrase “You’ll be fine!” Don’t get me wrong, she was a great mom and went above and beyond us kids were sick, but medicine was always a last resort. We occasionally got some Dimetapp for a cold (grape flavored all the way), or some antibiotics when you had strep throat or an ear infection, but that’s about it. By the way, I was queen of ear infections,...

“Oh Shii…take Mushrooms!” A Stir-Fry Recipe Review.

You all seemed to enjoy my last recipe review, so let me feed your interests. (See what I did there?) I’ve always been told that people respond to Food & Fashion the best when it comes to blogs, but I refuse to stop writing about the benefits of silence and why women shouldn’t compete with each other. Maybe someday reading inspirational essays will become the new craze! Nonetheless, I can’t deny the entertainment and practicality of Food & Fashion, so I’ll be sure to keep adding to those categories regularly. I even signed up for a photoshop/photography class, so soon...

5 Olympians (2016) Most Likely to Grace a Wheaties Box

Here’s the thing about the Olympics: Only two sports matter. Swimming and gymnastics. Oh my gosh, all the water polo and archery fans hate me so hard right now. I’m halfway kidding, guys, calm down. Listen, I’m thrilled for the U.S. gold medal in shooting, which we won over the weekend. I was thoroughly entertained by the volleyball match I happened to catch on the gym T.V. on Saturday. And I have a deep love for the equestrian team since joining it was my dream from ages 9 through 16, but the odds of a single horse being shown on television...

5 Wine Bottle Suggestions Just for You!

A lot of you ask me for wine recommendations, which makes me feel way cooler than I should, because I’m actually pretty stupid when it comes to wine. I can tell you the introductory basics, like what grapes certain regions are known for and the difference between oak and stainless steel barrels, but put me in front of 10 different bottles of pinot noir and ask me to tell you how each bottle should taste based on the climate in that region that year, and I’d tell you to stop being such a pretentious jerk. Just kidding. I’d hang my head and...

Bachelor in Paradise 3 Recap, Ep. 1: Hurricane Chad

For those of you who read my recaps without watching the show, let me make it clear that Bachelor in Paradise does not take itself seriously…and neither should you. Not that you should take The Bachelor seriously, but BIP is a different level of crazy antics. The whole thing is basically a reality show making fun of reality shows, and everyone involved knows it (except Sarah, bless her, who thinks it’s a show about finding love). Producers make their intentions very clear from the opening credits, which are set to an 80s pop version of the song “Almost Paradise”...
