Less crying…more smiling.

No more feeling lost…more adventuring and dreaming.

1st dream….living off grid.

Whether it’s a tiny house.

Here’s to getting there!!! And dreaming of a simple life.

(And hopefully not doing this.)

Ladies, if you haven’t already…

Switch to the Diva Cup!!!

Just finished my first cycle & wish I switched sooner.

Taking it out is almost alien-like at first, but you’ll learn to love it.

 Go slow and always BEND the diva cup.

Like bend and snap that thing in and out and dump all of that “period blood, period blood” (chime in Period sex song from Crazy Ex Girlfriend). ūüĒä

Here are 10 reasons you need to ditch the bleached sticks ASAP

  1. Better for the environment, man..No trash
  2. No need to buy tampons at Costco, one time cost of $30. Or hit the cheapskates jackpot like me, and find one for $10 in Walmart’s clearance section. ūüĒ•ūüĒ•ūüĒ•
  3. Less pain. Tampons can really hurt sometimes. You don’t even feel the diva cup in there!! It’s crazy but true.
  4. Cool factor. Like I lost that much blood. That’s what it looks like?!?
  5. Cost again. Like seriously how is this free and perfectly functionable?!?
  6. No wet string to deal with after you pee. Or god forbid accidentally get #2 on.
  7. Feels safe. No way that bleached, highly absorbant tampon is healthy. It sucks out too much moisture.. TBH
  8. You can keep it in for 12 hours?!? Take that you dirty old tampon. 
  9. No odor. No air contact between your blood & air = no stink. Tampons and pads are disgusting now looking back.
  10. No leaks (so far… don’t take me to the grave on that one)

Then you get to boil the whole memory of your period away every month when you sterilize it. Seriously, it’s rewarding and you deserve it.

This Cup will make you view your period from a whole different wavelength.

Gone are the days of having to make last minute scrambles to get ridiculously overcharged for tampons. And of course the dreaded TSS.

Save yourself $$$ and misery…Get the Diva Cup!!!

6 reasons living on the Cape is underrated

EVERYONE loves to give me shit. ¬†“What are you doing there???”…”why are you living on the Cape?”… “you need to move.” ¬†blah blah bleh. I could go on for hours about the constant¬†bitching and unwarranted advice.. oh yeah, did I mention¬†this ONE “why aren’t you working in the oceanography field?”

Well guess what you BETCHES

job advice

And sometimes you end up on a gigantic sand bar

Here are 6 legit reasons living YEAR-ROUND on the Cape does not suck:

 

1. We live where you vacation

anigif_enhanced-7255-1395153844-5

Didn’t the guidos in Jersey Shore invent this phrase?¬†LIVE BY IT.

20160130_165501

2. The temperate climate

Because the Cape is surrounded by ocean, the climate is significantly more moderate on the Cape. Remember reading about the urban heat island in geography class? That shit is real!!

Boston: 85¬įF ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Cape Cod: 68¬įF

3.  The ocean

Feel stressed out or just want to relax? Walk the beach. Plus having it all to yourself in the off-season is not too shabby.

4. The architecture

Cape Cod Stylerich people house 2

Cape Cod style homes are all the rage. When I lived in LA, I couldn’t walk 5 feet in Brentwood without seeing one. Which leads me to…..is there anything better than a quaint Cape Cod style home???? HOLD HERE…I’ll wait.

5. Cranberries

Bogs are EVERYWHERE! Watch these nutrient packed “craneberries” grow all summer, come falltime, witness the magic that is harvest, and¬†when the bogs are flooded in the winter, enjoy an¬†outdoor skating rink (if global warming would chill the f out)! YES

Here on the Cape.. it’s all about the outdoors. I mean look at this perfectly free bike path!!

It’s magical.

People like to call year-round Cape Codders townies. I like to call them snobs. Living in one place all year is normal, having multiple properties is not.

Here’s to adopting a new, more realistic mindset. ūüć∑ūüć∑ūüć∑

24 Vintage things that will never go out of style



1. VINTAGE CARS

I think Sarah Jessica Parker¬†put it¬†perfectly when she said, “it’s that faint smell of gasoline, the over-sized¬†seats, and the loud, rhythmic click of the¬†blinker.” Ole’ clunkers are just cool; and if SJP is on it, it is cool. Check¬†out the web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee to see for yourself. ¬†She has a 1976 Ford Country Squire Wagon, AKA the Griswold’s family wagon in National Lampoon’s Vegas Vacation.country

I personally think she takes it a little too far, but I totally agree with the idea.

22. VINTAGE CHRIS CRAFT BOATS

Say it with me, Lord Disick AKA Scott the drunk has good style. I know it hurts to say, but it is TRUE! Have you seen his Teak Chris Craft boat? It’s pretty incredible.

teak chris craft vintageteak chris craft

These Teak¬†legends¬†are CLASSIC$ and the quality is¬†simply breathtaking. Fiberglass boats look like trash compared to these¬†stunners.¬†Go ahead and buy one¬†today!¬†The prices¬†are¬†cheap…..for Bill Gates.

For the majority of us who are not abnormally wealthy,¬†we can¬†vicariously¬†join in on¬†the fun! Check out this little video¬†montage I made. I also love the Foo Fighters….. YouTube in Germany apparently¬†does NOT.

23. ANTIQUE TEAK Wood

The antique Teak Wood on those Chris Craft boats is so rare & sought after that even salvaged wood can fetch astronomical prices.teak floor

Why is Teak so desirable? Well, besides from its obvious beauty, Teak has an unique elastic, fibrous texture that can be easily manipulated for sculpting, art, and boat design. PLUS and probably most importantly, boaters value it for its ability to withstand extreme weather fluctuations; AKA high wind and season changes.

Even better, yeah it gets better, Teak resin contains a miracle oil that detracts water, bugs, and weathering overtime.

BUT¬†there are cons.¬†It takes decades for Teak to mature into its full beauty and there is simply not enough supply to keep up with demand.¬†As the founder of¬†Teak Me Home explains, ‚Äúthe beauty of the aged wood is that there‚Äôs more grain in the pattern.‚ÄĚ
